DT 770 Premium (consumer ) for closed classical?

Discussion in 'Headphones (full-size)' started by palpatine, Oct 24, 2009.

    I recently replaced my HD600 with HD650 for classical music. Don't get me wrong...the HD600 were wonderful with classical, but when I heard classical music with the HD650 I really liked the fuller sound of these phones which provided more bass than the HD600.
    I just sold my DT 770 250 ohm 2005 edition which I listened to primarily classical music with. I am hoping that a new DT 770 250 ohm consumer edition will do the same for classical music for me, adding more bass than the 2005 edition, w/o being boomy, and filling in the lower end.
    So my question is, will the current DT 770 250 ohm consumer edition headphone increase my enjoyment of classical music over the 2005 edition like the HD650 did over the HD600?
    I want to have a set of closed headphones that can perform well with that genre of music.

    I was under the impression that the current DT770 250ohm was the 2005 version, but I may be mistaken.

    If that is the case why does everyone refer to them as bass heavy phones. The 2005 edition were bass lean...that's for sure.
    PLus...they are advertised with a bass reflex system. My 2005 edition did not have this as far as I know.

    I've started my career with the old DT770'250 and know the newer versions (250 & 600 ohm) quite well from meets. The actual DT770 is a bit better than the old booombeyer (more mids, less nutty bass), but not to an extend to make them allrounders. They are still electronica & hip hop only IMO, anything with acoustical instrumentation and/or voices is a pain in the ass.

    If you want a closed can with better allrounder abilities, I suggest taking a look at the AKG K271 or 272. The Denon D2000 may also work acceptably, but they don't isolate very well, and their sound signature is a bit "HD650 for the poor", which wouldn't make much sense in your case.

    Stay away from Ultrasone, most models are even more extreme than the DT770.

    yeah, classical on any 770 flavor is a no-no

    Well...that also brings me back to the D7000 for and all rounder closed can.

    They give contemporary acoustic guitar a great sound with a lot of body. Otherwise, I agree with you.
