    AKG K702 Headband Painful?

    It seems that AKG has put a flat headband without any bumps to the newer "version" of K702. http://www.thomann.de/gb/akg_k702.htm   As you know, K702 65th Anniversary version and 712 Pro already have completely flat headbands, but they seem to be narrower than on the basic/new K702.  ...

    Audiophile class closed headies from Sennheiser?

    Have you ever wondered why Sennheiser doesn't produce audiophile class closed back headphones? I have for a few days, and it took me 5 years to suddenly realise this. I think the 600-series is really demanding a believable closed back set. The 280 Pro doesn't do that job. It is clearly with...

    Creek OBH-21 vs. Corda Headfive (HD 650)

    Hi there, I should be receiving a second hand pair of HD 650 tomorrow (exchanged for my A-T A900) and surely I would like to get "better kick" out of them than my AV-reciever's or CD-player's headphone jack can offer. Being a Second-Hand-Believer (only my speakercables has been bought as...

    Which one for DJ use/hiphop music - Sony MDR-V500DJ or AKG K 518 DJ?

    Hi, I really need your help on this one, 'cause I have very little of experience of DJ phones. The phones would come as a comforting gift for one of my best friends, who was cheated on a Sony V700DJ-phones deal (paid but never saw the phones). I found a used pair of Sony V500DJ for 40€ which...

    DT880 2003 vs. 2005?

    Hi again, Maza So the poor 595's have to find a new home, again? How sad But to your actual issue. I have been interested about the very same question and with the Search I've found pretty good answeres. I have listened them both but not at the same time nor the same equipment. So...

    BeyerDynamic owners unite...

    Once again, couple of questions... 1. Not having enough enthusiasm I won't search that thread where somebody said something about somebody who was working for beyerdynamic and who implied that CEO of beyerdynamic was not entirely happy with the new DT 990 and there would be some updating...

    BeyerDynamic owners unite...

    I have been considering to get a pair of the '03's or the '05's DT 880's. If I will get the '05 I'm interested of the 32 Ohm version also. So couple of questions... 1. So what is the sonic difference between 32 and 250 Ohm versions? Jan Meier says on his website that it is "very small indeed"...

    BeyerDynamic owners unite...

    This is offtopic but is it just me or has Headroom lowered the value rating of DT 990's from 4.5 to 4 and raised DT 770's from 4 (or 4.5?) up to 5? As I recall DT 880's were only "five star"-beyers there before. And it seems like it happened today! Just wondering...

    * beyerdynamic's ear-killing highs *

    Hi there, I've listened to the DT 331's, 531's, 931's, 770/80 Pro's, the '05 770's and the '05 990's, and the result has always been the same: after a short while of listening my ears begin to suffer and tire because of the too spiky highs. This annoying character has NOT appeared either...

    what's the best deal u ever had

    Well, to be honest, it wasn't exactly a deal because I couldn't afford it at that moment, but at one local hifistore I was made an excelent OFFER: used (about 6 month old or so) HD 650 for only 150€ (about 190$)! Ok, so it would been an excelent deal, but again, to be honest, I´ve never liked...

    2006 DT880 headband tabs

    What I have understood is that those aluminium tabs are just for your eyes. If you purchase phones directly from Beyerdynamic's Manufacture you can get whatever you want writen on those tabs. If you want to get rid of them I think you´ll have to use a screwdriver. Btw, I personally think those...
