    DT770: possible to tighten earcup adjustment mechanisms?

    Mine are only 1 year old and if I remember correctly, they have always had this issue. The outside looks fine, so I guess I'll have to open it up and check the inside.

    DT770: possible to tighten earcup adjustment mechanisms?

    I actually do have the Pro version. I probably should have mentioned that in the title. Does that mean my only option is use super glue?

    DT770: possible to tighten earcup adjustment mechanisms?

    Is it possible to tighten the left/right adjustment mechanisms on a pair of DT770s such that more pressure is required to move the earcups up or down a notch? They seem to require very little pressure to adjust compared to other headphones I've used, which causes me to have to readjust them due...

      I listened to those and liked the Hoedh and Caretaker albums.  What else can you recommend?  I tend to like ambient that is dark/mysterious/scary in some way.  Also how did you discover those albums/artists in the first place?  What resources would you suggest for finding new ambient music...

      Is there anywhere to stream the complete album?  I'd like to try it out before buying, but it looks like it was recently pulled off of Spotify and it looks like the bandcamp version only has a few tracks from the 4 CD set that can be previewed.

    Ambient Music

      I'm new to this genre, but I listed to the entire album and didn't really like it because there just wasn't enough variation.  It also sounded very similar to the "Signals" albums by Sabled Sun that were posted earlier in this thread (I listened to all 6).   The dark ambient genre seems to...

      Thanks, those are good resources.  To answer your question "What are you currently listening to?", here are some of the artists I have listened to and my impressions so far:   Kammarheit - this is probably my favorite dark ambient artist so far, with "The Starwheel" being my favorite album...

    general question about headphone sound quality and amps

    About that directx to winamp wrapper - can you provide a direct link to it? I couldn't find anything by that exact name on the site, and once I installed the stuff I couldn't get the plugin to work.

    general question about headphone sound quality and amps

    I have never used an amp before, so I'm sure there is something I am missing here, but - I always read on here when people compare cans, they will comment on the bass, treble, mids, etc. and say things like "the mids are lacking". Why not just build/buy an amp with an active filter in...
