    Other headphones in the HD650 price range

    Where I live, the HD650 costs 495-500$, and people around here says that there are now better headphones in this price range. Can you guys help me out by suggesting superior headphones in this price range?   I own DT990 and HE-400, so a headphone that differs from these would be appreciated. ...

    Finally ordered my first real pair of cans!

    I have, at long last, decided to get myself a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 990s! They seem like top of the line build and quality, but rather hard to drive. For that, I purchased the Bravo V2 $70 tube amp. That little bad boy has some solid reviews and enough juice to power the 990s. I may end up...

    What headphones out there have a v-shaped signature, but an even better soundstage than the DT990?

    I love the v-shaped signature of the DT990 but I want more height out of the soundstage. A few weeks ago I was able to listen to the AKG K612 with an Aune T1 with the E88CC Golden Lion tube. The soundstage was great and I could actually hear sounds coming from below ear level, basically from the...

    Modding my Superlux 668B & comments/impressions so far!

    I've bought a pair of these, and after listening to them for a few days (over 10h/day), I've modded them a little bit. I've noticed the burn-in difference after ~30h, by the way. Anyway, the mods I've done so far (pics numbered below the descriptions, so scroll down for reference):   1. Added...

    Which Headphone should I buy for Gaming and Nexus 5?

    Hey guys as you can see I'm a new member and I'm not too experienced in the audio world. I have a Nexus 5 and I use a program called Viper4Android that makes my phone sound way better than an iPhone. I listen to metal and house music, mostly house. I want to use my headphones for gaming too and...

    Beyerdynamic 990 Mod opinons

    I am going to mod my 990's with my friend casper and just playing around with some ideas. I plan on replacing the grill and blanking out the Beyerdynamic 990 part. I am hoping people could help me to decide which one looks best and I only picked red because it shows up well on what is colored...

    Polk Buckle- an overlooked headphone that deserves a thread

    After listening to these at Best Buy today, I am surprised there is not a thread yet for these, so I thought I would start one. They have a warm and detailed sound that I thought was impressive for $200 and they are certainly a contender in their price range.  They also fit comfortably over my...

    Is this normal for the DT 990 pros?

    Bought the DT 990 pros recently. I'm driving them with my phone( getting an amp/dac soon). They are quite loud out of my phone. Initially, they were quite warm, bassy(loose bass) and slow. Also, the highs were tamed by the loose bass. After 20 hours burn in, the bass has become tighter but the...

    Is there any better headphone other than the DT 990 under $200?

    Well, I'm confused whether I should sell my DT 990's. . After continuously listening to them for more than a week, I'm almost in love with them. My only complain are the mids - they are recessed. I love acoustic and ambient music. The mids sound thin with such kinda music for my taste. Athough...

    Beyerdynamic DT 990 - so far unimpressed

    I wanted a step up form the M50's. Nice headphones but I wanted greater clarity. I am assessing master mixes of my own music. I took a chance on these....well, because I got a good price. Thats it, read some reviews but otherwise took a stab in the dark. Beyerdynamics are a respected mfg so I...

    Moving away from DT-990(250Ohms)

    I almost daily use DT990 for listening to music, my interest are mostly in classic rock, classical,jazz and a bit of indie and alternative. After using them for almost 2 years I'm finding the sound to be too harsh for my taste for long listening sessions though most of my sessions are not more...

    DT 880 vs. DT 990 for classical music

    Here on Head Fi, you can find literally hundreds of pages and thousands of comments full of gushing words of appreciation for DT 880. The complaints are so few and insignificant that it makes you feel like you don't even need to audition it before a purchase.    But when you look up DT 990...

    HD650s and Fast Music.

    I've had my HD650s for a couple of years and I love them, they're sound signature is beautiful, however I'm finding their performance lacking in faster, more complicated music. For slow music, or music with less treble and fewer instruments they are amazing; smooth, laid back, and non fatiguing...

    DT990 250Ohm / Pro 250Ohm, replace my current amp?

    As I want to have a better experience in games I've been considering the above headphones. My current setup is the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 with the ASUS Xonar DG, which has an build in amp. Will I be able to drive a pair of 250Ohm headphone with it or should I upgrade? On a sidenote, it stands...

    Headphone Advice Needed

    My budget is 250 and I'm looking for either closed or open back headphones that are OVER EAR!!!!! I listen to a lot of metal/post hardcore/ rap. I want an excellent sound that isn't bass heavy but the bass is still present. I will be listening off of my iPhone 5s. I don't have an amp so I would...

    Best Headphones one can buy for $300 to listen to high resolution music files

    Most of my Music Files I have turned into AIFF (CD Quality) Files. Right now I own the Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro's. Love the sound quality from those but was curious if I was missing anything, from lets say the DT990'S or the fairly new 3-D Printed Mr Speakers Mad Dogs I am considering...

    Hi there guys,   Thanks for the help, I've been lurking here recently prior to buying my new headphones - beyerdynamic dt990's - these are the pro 250 ohm versions.   They are nice, I cant wait for the head clamping feeling to die down with the "stretching exercises" I'm giving them (read...

    Beyerdynamic DT990 quality?

    Hi,   I have bought a pair of Beyerdynamic DT990(not pro) 250ohm and I even if this is expensive headphones the quality feels so so?   The main problem I got is the holder of the cans, it feels rickety? I have it set to position 4 and 3 and there is alot of space for the to move around...

    dt990 DACs and amps and tubes and usb and omg brain melt

    Hi all,   After much research and pondering I've finally decided to get a Beyerdynamic dt900. At this point I'm not too fussed between the pro/premium and 250/600ohm versions. What I'm really having trouble with now is finding an amp and stuff for it. I know I need an amp but I have no idea...

    open Headphones with large soundstage under $500

    I am in need of Audiophile guidance!   I currently own the ATH-M50's (shocker) and i am powering them with an Audioengine D1.   The M50's do have a very nice, clear and full sound, however i find them very "closed."  When i close my eyes and visualize where the sound is coming from, it's...

    Help deciding which mid range headphones I should get. ALSO BRAND COMPARISON POLL

    I am looking at the AKG 550's right now but also the sennheiser hd 598's. I know they are very different but I heard the AKG 550's act a lot like open headphones which is what I want. My preferred listening style is a little on the warm end and I do like bass but not too much very tight and...

    Best headphones for around $500?

    I'm looking for a set of headphones for around $500. I'm gonna buy a soundcard with an amp to be able to get good use of them as well, but I've already got that picked out.   I'm not entirely sure if I want open or closed... haven't really used any open so I'm not sure how they sound. That...

    Best Full size headphone for Gaming/Music (Rock, Heavy Metal, Grunge, etc)/Soundstage/Comfort

    Hey guys, first post here! So, i'm shopping for a new set of headphones, as my main cans, Sennheiser HD 555 broke a couple hours ago. I found them quite good with gaming, but with music they sounded too laid back and boring, due to my main music genre being Rock/Metal.    I would like to have...

    Which one do you consider the best for rock/ hard rock listening yet with good FPS gaming abilities?

    Hi mates, well, the title is self explanatory. Before someone ask, I've been reading the Mad Lust Envy's Gaming Guide thread and lots of reviews from here and out, but still can't have my mind done as I don't know personally any high end headphone to make a comparison. I can get them for...
