post #781 of 905

I have some DT770 Premiums (250 ohm) and to my ears, nothing is more forward/recessed than anything else. I've heard the 80 ohm version is pretty bassy though..

For studio use I think neutralism is overrated, it's not the only way to go around things. You could also adapt to any headphone sound signature by listening to many different professionally mastered songs/tracks and familiar yourself how it sounds like with THAT headphone and tweak it yourself with that headphone you use to sound similar as those recordings. Of course it needs a bit experience in ability to percieve sound but I use Q40 with its measured 8dB bass boost to master hardstyle tracks without any issues.

 

You mean translation via familiarity.  I understand what you mean.  I wonder why the DT770 is the most used headphone in studios though?  I'm thinking, that maybe back in the day it was perhaps the only headphone that didn't aggressively roll off the bass response?  I found the Beyer T1, whilst not basshead had one of the most satisfying bass responses, but just like the HD650 rolled off at the lowest notes.  The Q40 is somewhat of a champion here...I wanna move into bassier cans because I want to catchup with all the latest genres of modern music.

The DT770 is also very close to being an industry standard for front of house (mixing) guys. 

 

I see them all the time. People sometimes put ridiculous stickers, or burn marks, or texta, all over theirs, to deter thieves.

and best of all it's the DT 770, a Beyer can. Those things are built like tanks, most likely another reason studios have em, drop a beyer... who cares its a beyer. Drop it again while ur at it lol to... deter THieves ;3, that's what they are doing

That is indeed the reason! These are tanks. I'd rather be worried about damaging the floor than the headphones. haha

Also isolation is quite good too.

And they are comfy enough to wear for hours!

So I just got my ES10 in the mail this morning. Holy f***. I had the EQ in PowerAmp set with the bass boosted a little from when I was using it with my old Westone 3, so when I hooked these up they damn near shook off my head (exaggeration). But damn, that bass hits hard, even with the extremely small cup volume. My pair has the ESW11LTD pads on them too, which supposedly reduces the bass impact a little, I can't imagine these hitting any harder than they do now.

@White Lotus - high five smily_headphones1.gif It also seems, that I tested the Fazor version, which supposedly has a small dip in subbass. So if the older 2.2 is also linear there - man, these have to be killers!
Lol, I love them so much, that I even try to equalize the D600 to mimic a bit the Audeze wink.gif
It's a real bummer, that there is no closed back version of the LCD-2...

Was hoping from you for some positive words about the SZ2000, but in this case money saved wink.gif

I tried the SZ2000 and wasn't impressed either. The bass section was fine but the mids were so hollow and unnatural that it put me off listening to music using them after the first 20 seconds or so.

Checked up the FR graph of the DT770 600ohm over at innerfidelity....indeed, looks very neutralish with a more accurate bass response.  Being closed, they use this in studio booths a lot.

A few years ago the ESW9s with the wood cups were very popular.  No one seems to mention these lines of ATH cans anymore, very interesting.

I had an ESW9 but the ES10 puts them to shame. These should not be overlooked at all. These trump my D2000 in sound quality EASILY. The D2000 has a little more sub bass than these, but lacks in detail in the mids and is much sharper in the treble region.

 Sounds like I would enjoy their signature a lot.  I enjoy both Portapros and PX100s for portables and I can still hear outside for safety.  Bass boost works well for this, they lack subbass like most cans do.

 

Actually it was the only headphones I took to work on occassions...the only tool suitable for the job of delivering music in stereo and still keeping up with surroundings, in case of accidents and stuff, even then I normally I don't ever do it at work becasue in most circumstances could be extremely dangerous.  But for walking around town, whilst shopping...its the safer option.

Haha. Oh man, I love PortaPros.

 

I bought three pairs in Japan, I had never heard them before.

 

Anyway. ES10. Looks very interesting. 

 

What was the wood-looking one again? Looked similar? Does is sound similar? 

 

How does it go in terms of comfort? Did you get a good price?

 

You are one of the experienced users of the D2000, if you say these are better, I definitely won't take that lightly! A big call from you!

I had them last year and quickly returned them when I got the Q40. The overall sound quality was not worth the asking price.
