I'm looking for some nice closed back headphones and came across the Beyer DT100 which looks very well built and has been around for a long time.

I'd like to hear from anyone who's owned this headphone and how they like it. My current reference headphones are the AKG K240DF which I prefer for their neutrality and clean sound.

I don't know about stereo versions, just one wired for vocal monitoring, which work wonders for acapella/vocals only. The dt100 seems to come in so many viariations if purchased on the used market, and you should make sure you know what you're getting as many seem to be custom tailored for studios/broadcasting etc. The retail i believe come in 16/400 ohm versions. From what I've read they're not for casual music listening, but great for monitoring. But that works well for vocals only/acapella. I use others for music,
 
Its hard to describe. For acapella (Roy Orbison as an example) it sounds like he's next to you. It makes him seem like a regular person is sitting beside you singing through a mic, and you hear it in your headset. Like if you were on stage at school, and your friend speaks into the mic, they just sound like a regular person right, no frills/fancy effects.  Except in this case, it's a million dollar voice. Its very strange, but wonderful.
 
It makes the singer seem so human. I dont even know what else to say. LoL. Defo not for hip hop/edm/metal or any music really :p
 
DT150 might be wiser choice, and this thing is like a TANK
