I have had my HD600 for almost a year. They are my favourite set of headphones so far coming from (in order) CX-300ii, DT770 250ohm, HD650, RS1i, DT880 600ohm, HD600, then DT880 600 ohm again.
Ive always had to sell a headphone to finance the next purchase and never had more than 2 at a time. When I had the DT880 before the HD600 I loved it. I recently bought it again, brand new, and find it painfully bright. This may be because I have gotten used to the laid back senn?
Anyhoo, I've been doing a lot of reading about where to go next. Looks like "bright" headphones are off the table. I stumbled across the ps500 and have read good things. I see from the frequency charts at headphone.com they look easy on the treble (treble frequencies do not peak above lower frequencies). There is unfortunately nowhere I am aware of in ottawa to demo a pair.
Is there anyone out there can can compare to my current HD600 or DT880? If you can be as detailed as you can. I feel too much time has passed for comparisons to my other headphones to be very beneficial. I rebought DT880 based on memory and now find them unlistenable unless i tame the Treble via EQ by 3db slope.
Thanks for any input you give. Much appreciated!
