Isn't that the same as doing your child's homework for them so they will get good grades?


OP, I'm not sure what is smoother than the HD650 in closed that is also spacious sounding. Smoother than 650 would head into dullsville.
Youre not serious, are you?

Dear Headphone Lovers,

I suppose I did find the ones that suit me. These are Beyerdynamic DT150, sound is so sweet and full. Absolutely not harsh, not sibilant. I have only 10h of burn in. And thay are still fresh but even that, sound is so natural, so relaxing. Have never here before so natural sound. And believe me I have been testing a lot even closer to 1000$. I try not be too enthousiastic, but this smoothnes in sound is so nice.

 

The only two small worries are: comfort which is rather at Grado side of comfort, and a little bit resonating bass, but I suppose it is due to their out of box stiffnes.

IMO closed phones are smoother than open in general. Try a Yamaha Pro headphone if you get a chance. UE6000 by Logitech might be even smoother though.

Thank you for your input, after long period I decided to sell T70, but I stay with belowed DT150. Now I'd like to buy second pair and final thoughts are:

 

Mad Dogs/Alpha Dogs

ATH A900X

TH600

 

Which are best priced for their quality and offer not fatiguing long period listening?

Now we have the Final Audio Pandora (nearly there) Hope VI - a very fine closed back you should also look at, along with its little brother the Hope IV.

The DT150 is something that I should use more. Have you tried the Shure SRH1540 yet? That might fit in with your taste. I certainly really like how it sounds AND looks.

+1 on the Shure SRH1540! At the time of my last post, I had not yet tried it.

 

Also recently I got to try the Fostex TH-900. Pleather/leather aside, this headphone REALLY wowed me.

I have no experience with Shure. Are these 1540 smooth? and not v- shaped?

Dt1350's have nicer mids than the HD 650's although they are closed on ear headphones and they suffer from the expected because of that.

They are superbly small, portable and accurate and I prefer them to my HD 650's and 598s.

They are built well and I even carried them on my back for 3 months while living outside.

Still like new.

GG?

Yes they are smooth. Not v-shaped at all. They have very substantial bass and very creamy mids. The treble extension is great, but it is never glaring or forward, if anything, slightly recessed.

 

I have heard the HD650's a couple times and I always finding myself comparing the SRH1540 to it.
