Need A Closed Pair Of Cans That Will Be Pushed By A Lyr

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hey people! I currently have a set of DT770 Pro 250's that I've been using for about 4 years now but they are getting tired and one of the drivers is going out =( That being said I need a new set of cans. I work in a studio (video games) so they have to be closed back as I can't be blasting music and having everyone else hear every lyric. I listed to a ton of electronic but also enjoy blues and some alternative from time to time. I'm looking for a set of cans that are strong on the low and middle ranges and aren't to overpowering on the high end. As far as budget goes, I'd like to keep it under 400 with 250 being my goal. Longevity, weight, and comfort are key, these will be used for 8-10 hours a day, 5-6 days a week.

 

Also if I can avoid leather pads it would be great, I love the feel of my 770's

 

Thanks in advance!

Hrmm, I hadn't considered the DT250's. How would they stand up against the 250/600ohm 880's? I know the 880's are semi open but I'm not sure if they'll be as loud as full open.

Also, how do the T70's stack up? I know I said 400 or less but they are looking quite sexy =)

 

Side question, something like the AKG K701's, they are open back, is sound leak pretty insane at high volumes?

Hey guys, I ended up going with the AKG K 712 Pro's and they should be here today. Also picked up a set of Tesla Gold Pin tubes from 1972, they are a matched pair and I'm excited to put it all together to see how they sound compared to my DT770's and the stock lyr tubes.
