I just joined the forum but I was reading it for a while now.
Currently I am in the process of choosing a closed over-the-ear headphone (primarily for a bus commute)
After reading recommendation on this forum I ordered:
1) Beyerdynamic DT770 32 Ohm -- love the bass , hate highs
2) ATH-M50s -- not that impressed
3) FA-003 -- did not arrive yet
4) Senheizer Amperiors.-- did not like them at all.
So -- Amperior's I've sent back right away -- Soundstage was not there and I hated on the ear fit.
while I am waiting for FA-003 to arrive it is between M50 and DT770.
I am not so sure about m50 -- they sound a bit muddy to me but warm -- however nothing special.
I am really liking the sound-stage of DT770 and the way it punches low frequencies-- very tight. However highs give me headaches.
sometimes it sounds like someone is scratching a blackboard -- almost squeaky
other times it is bearable but still pretty annoying.
Is it possible that I got a defective pair -- or is it just the way DT770 sounds?
I listen to all kinds of stuff from
classical , rock , jazz, obscure stuff,
Should I be looking at other headphones?
I own several open back headphones -- but I did not go through as thorough of the process selecting them -- just whatever I was able to get on a deal.
I own AKG 250 , Seinhezer PX100 -- love these -- to bad connector died need resolder it, Porta Pros
