    Actually, the treble complaint of me of the DT 150 being a bit metallic at times, really has to do with the earcups sliding off my head after a few minutes of listening.

    With the cups high on my ears, the treble is buttery smooth. When the cups slide off a bit, the treble instantely becomes less controlled/more metallic.

    Honestly a complaint I have about the DT 150 is the sliders don’t always stay in place. What’s interesting I have a DT 480 which has the same design as the DT 150 and is from the 1970’s(smooth dark gray earcups) and it’s sliders don’t budge when on my head but on my newer DT 480 which must be from the 1980s(textured black earcups) it has the same problem as the DT 150 with the sliders moving a bit after a few minutes on the head. So some reason sometime during the late 70s or the 80s it seems the sliders got worse on the DT 100/150/480 design. I’ve tried three older DT 480’s, the sliders always stayed in place but in the two newer ones I tried and the DT 150 they didn’t.

    Oddly, I have the opposite experience. I have two DT 150s (in two countries). The sliders seldom move. In fact they are so stiff that it’s difficult to position them. I bought one pair about six years ago, the other about a year ago. They both seem about the same.

    My DT 150 wasn’t bad, but did slide a little. But I’ve only owned and tried one DT 150, I had it 5 years ago.

    My DT 150 is actually a very old one, it has the DT 480 headband and came with a 6.3mm fixed plug in.
