There is less bass in DT150 when you place transducers not on the axe of the ear.
I mean axis? line of the ear? : ) U know what I mean...
I have one year warranty, but after month of using, left driver dead
Has anyone else found that these do pretty darn well with just an iphone, as long as you're using lossless files?
I've been enjoying traveling around with these just hooked up to an old iphone 4 (8gb!!). I haven't found the volume to be a problem, though the quality of the recording and the file itself do make a big difference. I'd imagine with most contemporary rock/hip-hop, etc. there's plenty of volume in the track. With older classical you may run into a problem that even at 100% you don't have a rich sound. However, the background is virtually black, and the sound is reasonably punchy and resolved for me, though I'm not expecting it to compete with a rig that costs a lot more.
The soundstage isn't huge, but the tonality is great. The main problem is the lack of storage space. I have to constantly delete discs and put new ones on, which is a hassle. Sorry to be political here, but it's definitely better than my Samsung tablet. On the other hand, iTunes sucks.
However, the iphone 4 is not much better, if any, than my Fiio E10 coming out of my computer. And you have the added disadvantage of not being able to play 24bit music, which is still a problem on many portable devices.
Also, I have liked these coming straight out of the headphone jack of an old Denon CD player. Very nice lows and mids, though the highs could have been just a touch more resolved. An involving combo that could probably be had for cheap, as well, if you are one of those people who still listens to CDs, and at home.
Bottom line is these phones are really the answer to a lot of low-budget/mid-fi combinations.
yup...it sounded tall deep n punchy with my fiio E18,
on my audiogd amp, clarity went up a notch...
and gets into brilliance with a tubeamp thrown in.
this dt150 scales v well.
Norah Jones on the DT150 is so seductive....like a hd650 in closed format.
I'm a bit late to the party but have found these quite....excellent..... with no major deficiencies-love the bass, mid, and high frequency balance-warm but with plenty of articulation-very natural and just sounds 'right'. Better as my modded DT190's came with the cloth-like material covering the drivers in tatters and thought I'd just cut away the material completely covering only the driver itself. I now have a slightly more articulate sounding DT150/190 series phone. Not a huge difference but still noticeable. Probably the same slight clarity increase as removing the foam covering from the pads. Not sure I would have done this (or recommend) instead of the foam but it was already halfway there. Thanks guys for turning me on to these!
the drivers are naked to my ears too...i prefer abit more clarity..i took away that silly foam
I prefer dt150 to t5p
