    Depends on what you are used to...
    After comfort of sennheiser hd800, or beyerdynamic t5p, dt150 feels uncomfortable. Dt150 is probably more comfortable than a motorcycle helmet )

    I own  AKG 601, Riudistor Chroma and Mad dog.  Comfort with headphones is a subjective question.

    ... Not if your listening sessions are 5-7 hours long.

    Yes it is, I can use the DT 150 for 10 hours straight without issue.

    I'd like to make a cable for my set but I'm having a hard time finding that connector on the North American Beyerdynamic site.

    Anyone have a link they could provide me?

    There are two options to get a new connector:
    1. Go to ebay and buy a complete cable then cut the connector from it and resolder to anything you want. That's what I did first. The cost is pretty steep though so beware.
    2. Go to http://www.canford.co.uk/Products/54-859_BEYERDYNAMIC-SPARE-6-PIN-SOCKET-For-DT-100-DT-108-109-headset-6-wires and order the connector separately. It's not cheap either but a little cheaper than a whole cable. Actually you can order all parts for DT150 from this site. Disclaimer: I haven't used their services yet, so I can't say anything good or bad about this store.

    hello, I have recently buy DT150. my first impressions in compared to my K612 are:
    more clarity in the midrange and separation instrument ... *
     a little more resolution
     more impact in the bass ... **
     the highs are a little more pronounced, but not annoying
     * ... The clarity is due to the type of headphones closed (black background)? the akg are very open and if you listen to at night completely silent have a greater recovery of detail IMO.. also having greater clarity, the DT150 does not have the musicality of akg IMO. the middle, even if they are a little more dark and maybe more neutral (K612 have middle-high a little pronounced), is a little cold, not warm and musical
     like akg.

     .. ** The bass quality is better on K612 and there arent big difference in impact IMO.
     comfort is good .. but not like the akg .. also the material they are made pads have caused me itching and reddening (but I think this is my problem).

     now the questions are: who owns both headphones can confirm my views?
     I have to sell one of them to replace it with a "bass heavy headphones" .. (the forum is said that this is very "fun", but I did not find large differences from my "flat" akg ..)
     I currently have a hifiman ef2a as amp / dac .. the K612 seems to change a lot depending on the dac. which however in my experience it does not make the DT150(not so much as the K612).
    There is someone who has both headphones and a dac updated?
  15. kman1211

    I have both the DT 150 and the K612, with the Schiit Lyr 2 and an HRT Music Streamer II+ as an DAC. The DT 150 gets more musical with more use, it's also less fatiguing and less grainy than the K612. I'd say the DT 150 is the better headphone overall than the K612 and I do prefer the Dt 150 overall, especially after more use, the bass really kicks in on the DT 150 once the pads break in. I do think AKGs in general have a certain type of musicality to them that other dynamic simply headphones don't have, I've never been able to pinpoint exactly what it is but it has been present in all the AKGs I tried, it's something to do with the midrange, certain systems bring it out more. The AKGs are a bit pickier of the system than the Beyers.
