    Reply to review by '396629' on item 'beyerynamic DT 150 Compact Closed Headphone (250 Ohms)'

    Agree,If you've heard anything better and I haven't then mention them by name. Don't speculate.   The headband can be bent easily for a looser fit.   The most underrated headphone out there. Every headfier should have a pair if just to show how much money they have wasted on their 'TOTL' headphones

    Beyerdynamic DT 150: Bloody Brilliant!

    I stand corrected sir! ]Mine was a minority view among headfiers and I suppose I just don't belong here. I should just stick to my modest but to me pleasing collection of unmodified phones and enjoy the music. Cheerio :heart_eyes:

    Beyerdynamic DT 150: Bloody Brilliant!

    Changing pads form the original will always be a lottery for any headphone. This seems to be a bit of a headfi obsession which is beyond me I'm afraid.   Its always 'Ive just got these amazing new headphones that sound perfect due to the manufacturer spending hours and hours carefully fine...

    Er no They are so common place being used throughout the world for the past 30 years.They are just a tool really for broadcasting and other industries that happens by design to sound great for music pleasure. Maybe in a hundred years time when I predict there will still be working examples of...

    DT990 Pro Impressions Thread

    Have you tried them with your teac HA P50. That is one warm sounding amp much more so than a tube amp of the Bravo Ocean class. Too smooth for me in fsct

    Beyerdynamic DT 150: Bloody Brilliant!

    SE846s due their excessively low impedance seem to over picky when it comes to source. I've read so many posts constantly complaining of hissing from otherwise good portable devices such as Sony A15 and the latest iPhone etc. Don't seem fit for purpose to me somehow.

    I lost my iPod Classic 160GB. Does anything else compare or do I just get another?

    Just get another one off eBay I've got two but not selling ;-)

    Radiohead

    Quite a funny article actually but also almost completely wrong. Great band and a nice new more accessible album. Like all Radiohead will need many listens to fully appreciate

    AudioQuest Dragonfly Review : Affordable, Outstanding, Tiny DAC / Amp

    Could the difference be due to the OGG Vorbis codec being used by Spotify. At one time before lossless was common OGG was believed to sound smoother less harsh than mp3 at a given, and especially lower, bit rate. I may well be wrong on this point but it sounds good for what it is to me  !

    Most overrated headphones?

    Even more money can be saved by replacing HD650 (or presumably any other quality headphone) with a pair of $5 VE Monk earbuds. There are people who say they sound as good or prefer them believe it or not! So any headphone costing more than a fiver might be classed as over priced and overrated :-D

    Most overrated headphones?

    HD650's apparently 'scale very well' But any headphone that requires amplification (and cables!?!) costing several times its own price to reach it's potential has to a be just little flawed maybe?

    Beyerdynamic DT 150: Bloody Brilliant!

    I wondered whether you have any experience of TAGA's other DAC/amps; the cheaper THA200 and THDA200T ?    I'm interested as TAGA's integrated tube amps and their CD Receiver tube mini system are starting to get rave reviews in HiFi publications.   TAGA seem to offer great value but they get...

    Most overrated headphones?

    Honourable exceptions to my £100+ rule include possibly the Meze 99 Classic which seems to be very reasonable price for the craftsmanship and sound quality, all other Beyer DT headphones (in Europe at least) and possibly the HD600/650 (although you can easily get 2 Beyers of similar quality for...

    AudioQuest Dragonfly Review : Affordable, Outstanding, Tiny DAC / Amp

    I'm actually quite happy with my 'free' Amazon Prime Music which is on average 256mp3 , I believe,  for occasional streaming. Not a full range of artists but I can always find something intersting and new to listen to. Sounds very decent on a mobile phone or compter + dac/amp.  Having said that...

    Best Releases of Karajan on CD

    Sorry can't  help with those sort of details. I can only say I find all my DG Originals, some of which I own on LP (although with no way of currently playing them for comparison !) sound very good remasters.    I find Gramophone http://www.gramophone.co.uk/ and the book 'The Penguin Guide to...

    Meze 99 Classics Discussion + Impressions Thread

    This may be of mild interest to Meze 99 owners but the headphone comfortably won a group test in this month's HiFi Choice magazine.   As is usual with this magazine the contenders were a pretty eclectic bunch of open and closed phones; Sennheiser Momentum 2, Oppo PM3, B&O H6, Philips X2 and...

    Sony NWZ-A15 vs FiiO X1

    Pains me to say it, as I am a longterm  fan of Walkmans and the A15. but I could not find much discernible difference between the A15 and my Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. If anything I would give the edge in clarity and feeling of openess to the phone.   I repurchased the A15 but was disappointed...

    Beyerdynamic DT 150: Bloody Brilliant!

    I am wondering whether anyone will do a proper detailed comparison between the DT150 and some of the 'high end' closed headphones out there. I'm thinking the Fostex TH series and various T50RP based specials, the old Denon D5000/ 7000, Mcintosh MHP1000, Beyers own T5P and DT1770, closed back...

    The BEST-LOOKING Headphones

    Agree completely with this.   'When ugliness is defined and mediocrity accepted beauty remains' They are certainly one of the most beautiful sounding headphones. Nothing else is really neccesary
