About isolation (i have a baby), confort and bass texture. Do you speak about? Compare with HM5 (my reference high end).
Subbass is present? Like D2000? D2000 worth the higher price they ask for it?
I listen heavy, doom, gothic metal, hard rock, pop rock, psytrance, bob marley, unpluggeds, progressive, blues, jazz, movies and games. With Xonar STX.
About HM5, i try fix it tomorrow.
If you are okay with the recessed mids of the DT770 and the slightly boomy bass, I don't see why you wouldn't like them. I would say they isolate about the same as the HM5, but the HM5 have a higher clamping force. I find the DT770 to be a much more comfortable headphone. The D2000 isolates less than both the HM5 and DT770. The D2000 lets sound in and out to a pretty good extent, but not quite as much as an open headphone.
I would say in terms of comfort, DT770 > D2000 > HM5.
I thought the D2000 (and my D5000) were definitely worth the price I paid, but now that they are discontinued, they are selling for a much higher price and am not sure I can recommend them over other headphones that are priced similarly or even cheaper now.
Quickly, I would say the HM5 are best known for their neutrality, the DT770 for their mid bass, slightly recessed mids, and crisp highs, and the D2000 for their sub bass and sparkly highs.
In my opinion (take it with a grain of salt as I am no professional), I would rank these in overall terms of sound quality, musicality, and preference as D2000 > DT770 > HM5.
That being said, the HM5 is the cheapest of the three and compares favorably, but does not overtake the other two in any category except neutrality, assuming neutrality is something a listener is after. I would recommend the DT770 over the HM5 considering it can had for $150 USD new. As I mentioned, I do wholeheartedly recommend the D2000/D5000, but when price is taken into consideration (it rarely isn't) it's hard to recommend them for their current going price.
