I think between Cop and Dt770, the cop stays.

I got the COP and M50 today.  Listened to both and prefer the COP so far.  Although it is very hot to wear.  I am unsure how I feel about that, although I can buy different pads I'd assume?  The M50 has less bass than the COP (although you can adjust it) and appears to sound lighter/brighter (not sure what the terms are)  just not as deep.  The COP also blocks out noise more passively.

 

So tomorrow the DT770 arrives along with the E11.  The decision will come then.  Any pad recommendations are welcomed though.

As in hard to make a decision? and the amp should make a difference from what I'm hearing today too.   

post #36 of 63

yeah.

out of these the only ones i wouldn't own are the M50

because i don't like the treble on them.

or the bass.

I'm liking the COP so far.  Will post my decision and why tomorrow after I run each for an hour or so.

Also, I wish I hadn't read so much on this site.  Now I'm wondering if I should stretch my limit and get something else altogether.  probably should just give my first pair a good go around to see what i do and don't like, but damn there's so many options

I've gotten the DT770 and COP in and I'm not in love with either one.  I would consider upping my budget to $300.  The COP are too tight to my head and extremely hot.  

 

What about a pair of mad dogs?  With an E11 will it give me bass?

 

There's just so much that I'm sort of overwhelmed

Or really is there anything under $300 that stands out?  It just seems the Mad Dogs are the best overall headphone under $300 and with an amp should still have enough bass for me

what did you not like about either other than the comfort issue of the COP? how did you feel the sound was? any idea what changes you would like in your sound?
was the bass enough on them?

The COP had plenty bass when slid open. They just sounded hollow or distant for lack of a better term. There was bass but it wasn't punchy, kind of just rumbley. I guess it just doesn't have the detail I was hoping for. I may be asking too much for my price range.

I mostly listen to classical and film scores so I like bass for scores. For hip hop ill probably just use my IEMs.

I have am E11 to couple with any headphone.

Cliff notes:
- more detail
- punchier bass

also just wondering, how does the DT770 compare in sound to the COP?
and yes just rumbly bass or light feeling bass is typical of open or big earcupped headphones. not sure about higher end audezes though.
and since iems are closed in a small space it's easy to make punchy impactful bass
