Crazy

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I finally found a place where I could try some headphones out. Tried out the dt770 80s, Shure 840s, and sennheiser hd380.

I can say without question the hd380 was the worst, didn't feel comfortable at all and it sounded like a tin can. The biggest surprise came when I tried the dt770s. From all the reviews I've read I heard they were the most comfortable. Well definitely not for me. The velour actually made my head itch I though it was very uncomfortable.

All in all I ended up going with the 840s because they actually felt the best and the sound to me was phenomenal and even without an amp which was my goal. I thought about the custom one pro that mal recommended but after hearing the dt770 80s the sound just didn't impress me much and I didn't want to take a chance on returning yet another headphone ( previously I tried the athm50, k550, and grado sr80i).

I always thought I would love the feel of the velour pads but it finally took actually finding a place to try them to change my mind.

How can you NOT like the beyer velours? They are almost too soft for me. Are you allergic or something :P

Some just dont like velour, but as for not sounding better then the 840s IDK. Did you have them amped at all? what Ohm Version were they? Without proper amping they do not sound their best IMO.

Keep in mind that probably a lot of people have used those headphones.

actually no they were brand new, they had to take it out of the sealed box to let me try them.

The 840's are nice.  Really like their sound. The only thing I don't like about them is the comfort.  For long listening sessions the pads on my ears become too uncomfortable.  I also would not describe them as portable as they tend to fall off my head with any movement at all.
