DT770 IEM equivalent?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I have some Beyer DT 770 Manufaktur 650OHM, which i've used for years for listening, producing, gamming.. everything sound related, as I barely use my Adams due neighbours and background noise.


So yeah, I love my headphones but the headband makes my head hurt after hours of use. I would like to minimize the Beyer's usage to only producing, then use earphones or in-ears or whatever, as long as it is extremely comfortable to wear. If they are decent for producing too it would be a plus. I could use them as a second reference and give my scalp a rest from the headband pressure. What are some good recomendations? Im using an AK1 to drive them. If they have a sound similar to the DT770 it would be great since im used to them.

Do IEM isolate aswell? I love my DT770 because the isolation from background noise is great. A headphone that doesn't get rid of a decent amount of background noise is a waste of time for me.

 

Thanks

anyone? I need one pretty soon because I can't use headband headphones anymore, im using hairloss treatments too like minoxidil.. i cant have this on my scalp while using a headphone, so I need in-ears.

Err....I can't really help much since i've never heard a DT770 before. But they have very prominent bass so maybe you should look at bass heavy IEMS. Anyway, Free bumb.

 

SOME ONE HELP HIM.

lol. I think the DT770, at least the manufaktur 600ohm ones are pretty balanced in my book. Im able to monitor with them and produce entire tracks with great results on there, and the bass translates surprisingly well in speakers.

 

But yeah someone help me with this.

Well around 200€ IF it's totally worth it.

Like I said, im looking for:

 

1) Comfortable, to use for long hours without ear ache or ear damage (asuming I use a safe volume)

2) Portable: Doesn't look too stupid in your ears, you can wear them at the train and pass as a normal citizen

3) Sound: It has to be at least decent to work on your production projects, then finish it up with a mixing-polishment session with my headphones of choice and also check em out on my Adams

4) Has to be able to be driven by my NI AK1 successfully as I don't have money for a better DAC.

5) Has to cancel outside noise as much as possible, as I hate background noises and I can't focus.

Reading the description here these seem pretty nice but I have no idea about Vsonic as a brand.

Also, whats bass edition? That doesnt sound very nice. I want to avoid ridiculous boombastic low ends. Im a dnb and jungle head and im mostly on these and electronic genres myself, but when im producing I want to know what im doing and "bass edition" seems dangerous.

It is bass heavy, but not very bass heavy. Personally, I like the normal version more.

Oh man I just had to reply here in case somebody's still interested.

 

The Zero Audio Carbo Tenore sound well close to the DT770 80.

FR, soundstage and air, attack, sub bass... very close, at least to me.
