    Hopefully impressions are more positive with the stereo version and after some listening allowing burn-in and pad break-in.

    Looking forward for some DT100 impressions which I've never even seen live. I highly regard DT150.

    I think the DT100 were just made for midrange detail, not enjoyable music listening. Like with DT48 you can hear some nice midrange transients, but they were not as transparent as the DT48 either. 
     
    Having owned the two I've had lots of fun comparing them side by side.
     
    Also my DT100 has terrible coloration in 250-500hz range, which makes for a honky sound. That could improve clarity in speech applications, I don't know. You can get used to it, but listening to something else they will sound colored and weird at first.
     
    I don't know why would you drive a 10hz sweep at these headphones. Anything testing below 30hz is stupid in headphones, you just can't hear it with any dynamic. What you will hear is distortion and not actual bass though this should be obvious.

    Well that's a classic misunderstanding 
    What I meant was that at every 10hz increment from 40-100Hz that phenomenon happens , not at 10Hz .

    I decided to let go of my AKG K712 Pro, while I really enjoy it's sound, it causes me ear fatigue and I decided I don't want any headphones that fatigue my ears. It's basically just the DT 150 and the K612(which doesn't fatigue me) now and likely later an HD 600 for me. I listen to music at moderate-high volumes so I need something that doesn't fatigue me at the volume levels I listen to. I'm trading headphones with a friend who listens at low volume levels so they are getting a good home. The DT 150 fits the bill of not being fatiguing at the moderate-high listening levels very nicely as they never bother me one bit.

    Anyone can do a comparion on the DT150 / Focal Spirit Pro?

    I'm interested in what you find fatiguing about it, as I'm considering buying it.

    I believe it's the upper midrange that fatigues me, it's a bit too forward. It's not obvious about it to me, but after an hour or two I'm bothered by the sound around the listening level I enjoy, at lower volumes it's fine. My ears become stuffy when fatigued.

    same problem i had with K701/Q701... uppermids somewhere, grating on my ears.
    espcially for vocals..still tolerable for classical music :p

    Just got my 100s and WTF is this , they sound atrocious 
    I am speechless - Well ignore , I found out why they sucked , they are awesome ! 
     
    Another peculiar observation , I am getting some bass once the pads are pressed inwards ..take my words with a grain of salt , I'll keep on updating 
    Yes , my opinions are changing drastically ...this is a interesting headphone , I need some time before I conclude anything

    Well if you listen to rock at high volumes , don't get the 6XXs 
    The dt880s and 150s are superior
