    Recommend closed cans similar to HD600 fit/ sound signature...

    DT48 is all you want. The fit is something you need to get used to, but they are more detailed and smoother than HD600.

    AKG k240 vs Ultrasone

    Why not get Ultrasone 580?

    The Beyerdynamic DT48 Arrives...

    The only thing I can think of, it that your DAC/amp has terrible synergy with your DT48 (do you even own a DT48? You don't list it in your profile) I've used the ER4S daily for over 4 years, and have owned 3 pairs of HD800. The primary reason I love the DT48 is that it sounds similar to the...

    The Beyerdynamic DT48 Arrives...

      Well, the chance that something is technically wrong with the tranducers is pretty small so I wouldn't mess with them before doing some more tests. It may sound stupid, but are you sure that you are wearing the headphones symmetrically? As in, having both earcups adjusted to the same length...

    The Beyerdynamic DT48 Arrives...

    Oh and about the channel imbalance, just replace the cable. The cable is almost always the culprit in these kinds of things. If it was not the cable, but for instance a misaligned voice coil, it would be very unlikely that 1 side would only sound more quiet, without distortion or alterations in...

    What's the point of this whole discussion? ANY headphone can be destroyed if you feed it enough energy, that's just simple physics. Doesn't matter if it's a DT48, Porta Pro or Orpheus. Why would you even try to find the limit if you risk damaging your hearing and your DT48 in the process...

    DT 990 PRO 250 Ohm with STX - horribly sound?

    iphone/ipad headphone out has slight bass boost and rolled off treble i think, while STX is neutral sounding. STX has a good EQ though, so it's easy to tune the sound to your liking. And yeah, I really don't get where these stories of Beyer "bass" come from. I tried DT770 250 ohm and it had...

    Please help me, my studio monitors were stolen and I want a good pair of headphones now. (Merged)

    "Rare earth metal" is just a marketing term. Usually the term is used for neodymium magnets, which are used by almost all headphones, even $5 ones. The strength of the magnet is very important as it partly determines the speed and force at which the voice coil moves when current is passed...

    I have a problem with my ATH-A900X's looks, searching for a possible solution.

    Don't listen in front of a mirror, it distracts you from the music.

    Full sized Etymotic ER4/HF5

    HD800 and DT48. The latter sounds just as "in your face" as ER4, the HD800 obviously has much bigger soundstage, but sounds slightly less fast as ER4 and DT48 and has a bit more bass. HD600 also sounds pretty similar, but isn't quite on par with the others when it comes to technical...

    A little trick to remember, especially for first time Grado users...

    I honestly can't understand people that think Grados sound good when they wear the bowls around ear, they sound thin and shrill. They must be fooling themselves, thinking this is how they should sound and all the good reviews are based on that shrill sound. Well, most positive reviews are not...

    Ultrasone Pro 900 left driver not working

    Sounds like a bad soldering joint. You probably will need to open it up and resolder the cable to make a proper connection again. Quite strange that it would develop a problem there though, as there is no stress on the inner solder joints when moving the cable.

    The Beyerdynamic DT48 Arrives...

      The Violectric V200 makes the DT48 SING. Both the 200 ohm and 25 ohm DT48E sound amazing on it. Buttery smooth, yet with the DT48 speed and detail.   I do not hear any difference in sound between the two different ohm-versions by the way. I've heard people say that the 25 ohm is slightly...

    The Beyerdynamic DT48 Arrives...

      They look awesome, you were lucky to be able to get a NOS pair. I bet DT48 in that condition will become quite rare in the future, better take good care of it! Most DT48 i see for sale are full of dings and scratches. Like really, do some people use these as a ball to play soccer or...
