    All the older headphone designs that are still in productions are just excellent, DT150, HD25, CD900ST and the STAX Lamda. All plasticy and infinitely serviceable.

    This should serve as a good visual aid , that's the Legendary M88TG on the left and the DT109 on the right.

    i had a DT250 for almost a decade, but i was a noob "headfoner" then,
    just plugged it into my old cdplayer n listened to it. 
    V curious how this DT250 will measure up to the dt150 now ..
    i presume the DT250 is a latter model, n an improvement of sorts?

    From the comparisons I looked at before deciding on the 150, they're different designs for different purposes; the 250 isn't intended to be an improved 150 (and in a very general sense, it seems the consensus is that the 150 probably sounds better).

    I'm in the club now. My brand new pair sound great. A tad too much midbass reverb but hopefully that will go away if I keep exercising the drivers.

    I had to open it and switch the stereo connections. Right sided cable makes me confused. So now they are left side plugged. I turned the buttoned headband padding too just to feel more authorized :)

    Sound signature is similar to my Mr Speakers Mad Dogs. If you like the Mad Dogs you'll probably like DT 150 too.

    Interesting, I actually like them a good bit more than the Mad Dogs, as to my ears the Mad Dogs had noticeably rolled-off treble (and this is coming from someone who thinks the LCD-2s sound very balanced).

    Well this is unexpected, a HD 600 came in the mail from a friend it seems.

    at times i tot my DT150/DT100velor is a closed version of the hd600...kinda. (off my sonic memory)

    Ah I see, haven't really heard the DT 150 with the DT 100 velours. I have to adjust to the HD 600s sound and let it burn-in. The HD 600 seems a bit veiled, though it could simply because I'm so used to AKGs and Beyers and the fact it's brand new. I've been switching to and from a cardas cable and it seems to make a difference in clarity, have to test it more.

    +1 on that Cardas. :)

    I am going to burn-in the headphone for a couple weeks and just use the stock cable, the cardas cable is a bit too bulky for my tastes. After the headphone is well worn-in and burned-in, I'll try the cardas cable more to see if it really makes a difference or not. Sometimes cables seem to make a difference, other times not.

    Pretty sure its the opposite , you might be used to the accentuated highs on AKGs , although the 712s are dark ? 
    I find the 600s to extend very well , coming from crazy bright headphones I never described the 600s as veiled , sure I might for the 650s but never for the 600s , they extend and resolve very well .

    I am used to brighter headphones than the HD 600. The K712's are not dark sounding, especially considering the forward upper midrange and lower-mid treble of them. Anyways I'm more used to the DT 150's sound right now than the K712's. I don't find the HD 600 veiled now after adjusting to their sound. The thing is the HD 600 is the darkest and warmest headphone I've owned in a while, so it doesn't surprise me they came off as veiled at first. I noticed they extend and resolve very well and they are really growing on me after spending more time with them.
