    Beyerdynamic DT880 - Would you consider them Neutral?

    No I would not. The highs that the DT 880's have are definitely emphasized compared to other headphones. Instead of neutral, I'd call it a very revealing headphone. The HD 595's I have are noticeably less revealing (although not necessarily less forgiving) but more neutral than the DT 880's...

    Good, durable, closed headphones?

    another popular choice would be the Sennheiser HD 25's. also very durable and isolating, but these smaller cans rest on your ears and you can swivel one cup away. these have a much stronger bass response (and general impact) than the HD 280's. the standard 70ohm model (25-1) has a steel cable...

    just received a very weird pair of HD25's....

    you should try measuring the ohmage of this headphone. the cable is probably a 25-13 cable, and if the headphone measure at 600ohm, you bought a pair of 25-13's.

    HD595 "cold", "harsh", "odd bass"?

    listening to SOAD with my 595's right now, plenty of weight to the guitars, plenty of kick on the drums, plenty of attack on the snare, plenty of extention on the hihats. No complaints heter depending on the quality of the record, the cymbals/hihats can be a bit gritty though

    What Music Makes Your Cans "Disappear"?

    I completely agree, I also think it largely depends on the recording. Heck, I've even had the 25-1's disappear from my head!

    Headphones for a drummer...

    if the 25 SP's sound is anywhere close to the 25-1's sound, i guess they'd be perfect for your brother. nigh indestructable, heavy/punchy bass, very good isolation. I saw T. Raumschmiere not long ago, techno/rock band, the drummer had 25-1's

    Have you ever dreamed about headphones?

    To my amazement, when I woke up this morning I realized that the last thing I was dreaming about was listening to one particular pair of headphones: the AKG K501's. I've never even seen these, but I remembered being astounded by the fact that I heard bass! Am I losing it? Should I lock my...

    if you need durable, portable 'phones to bang your head with, get the Sennheiser HD25-1's. They're expensive and there are better sounding headphones for the price, but they're still the closed portables to beat IMO i'd commend you and give you a cookie if you manage to break them. they're...
