Heya,

 

D600 - Bassy, fun.

Momentum - Balanced, warm.

T70 - Anemic, all mids, bright treble.

 

What kind of sound are you looking for? It would be easier to guide you that way.

 

Very best,

Straight from my portable the Momentum was too bassy.  The pair I tried made the bass sound really out of place.  All I heard was a bump in the sub bass and it fatigued my ears.  The D600 is a pretty fun headphone, but it has problems with tizzy sounding treble and a tad bit of bass bloat.  I have not heard the T70.

 

Is there a reason you listed just those three?

 

Some others to try are:

Philips Cityscape Downtown ( on-ear )

ATH-M50 ( a tad boring until you get used to the sound signature )

AKG K550 ( very well suited for most genres of listening, sounded pretty close to my AH-D2000 )

I'm looking for headphones that don't have that " Sharp " treble and a slight increase in the bass. I listen to everything except for classical, metal and jazz, cheers :)

Heya,

 

Logitech UE 6000

Sennheiser Momentum

Sony MDR1R

AKG K167

M-Audio Q40

 

Or maybe any headphone that with the features you like, and simply equalize.

 

Very best,

In your opinion what is the best closed - back headphone under $600? Thanks :)   

 

Also how are the D2000's?

Heya,

 

Best? There's no best really. There are too many great flavors to have one best.

 

I'm partial to two headphones at the sub-$600 range for closed back:

 

Denon D5000 (or D7000/D2000). Great, warm, monster sub-bass machine with great mids and a little sparkle in the top. Woodback. Comfy. Gorgeous.

Mr Speaker Mad Dog with SR007 Stax Pads. Ortho mids, ortho bass. Great overall response, great isolation, comfortable, and competes with serious flagship stuff. Kinda ugly though.

 

The D2000 is discontinued. But it's still here and there. Excellent headphone. Plethora of reviews around here.

 

Very best,

A new Beyerdynamic T70 is way over priced, but I really do like their sound.

I would say the price I paid for mine, $313 used (off Amazon), is the max anyone should pay for them.

 

My Audio Technica ATH-A900X (new $250) is a great music audio headphone.

 

What source(s) are you plugging the headphones into?

If I could get the T70 for around $300-350, would you say the it's an upgrade to the A900X and the K550?

 

I've been looking for a good closed back for some time now. The K167 didn't cut it, ended up returning mine. I could always play it safe and go back to the K550, or try something new like the A900x or T70.

Depends on what your plugging the headphones into?

If you were plugging the headphones into a receiver, then the T70s would be a good choice.

Otherwise, I would say to try to find some used ATH-A900Xs for under $200.

soundmagic hp100 is seriously recommended here.

You should probably demo a set of Momentums.  If you prefer their sound signature then they will suit you well.  I just had an issue with the bass, but I tend to be sensitive to bass frequencies.  Otherwise the Momentum sounded awesome and was very comfortable and well built.

 

Do you mean the Audio Technica D2000 or Denon AH-D2000?

 

The Denon AH-D2000 is one of my favorite headphones.  It is extremely neutral for a dynamic driver and sealed headphone.  They are very comfortable and well made, but are not really meant for travel as the swivel on earcups can tend to break under stress.  I have had mine for years and the better gear I end up with the better the AH-D2000 sound.  They are a tad bass heavy unamped, but very well controlled and neutral well amped.  Some find issue with the treble, but to my ears my pair are a little treble light.  The sound signature is probably what you are after on the AH-D2000, but they are not being made any longer.  The AKG K550 comes close and is worth a listen.

Very best,

Sorry for using this thread but it seems the right place....

Malveaux we already talked via pm, as i told i listen mostly to pop rock and edm and recently i have to sell my over ear momentums, wich i loved the sound and thought it was the perfect complement for my hd25, but unfortunately, the fi, the seal and the confort ruined everything. Right now i am trying to find a can that does what the momentums did in terms of sound quality and versatility but on a REAL over ear size..,,

As i previously mentioned to you the 32ohm (limited edition) dt770 is a chance and also this week i found out thathe i can get a pair denons d600s for 130 euros..,. Are they worth the price? Are they on paat with the momentums in terms of sound quality? How do theynboth compare?

These denons seem lile a pretty good deal, but its weird to see a 500 euro headphone drop to 130.... There seems to be some love and hate about this d600.... What do you guys think? Worth it or should i just get the 32 ohm dt770?

Looking forward for your replys.... :-)

Momentums are a good choice, but the fit can be a bit finnicky if you have large ears. They have good quality pads, but they are quite small compared to other full-sizes.
