Interesting. I might give them a try since I I have been looking for a classical headphone.

Did you try to compare them to the K-240MKll for classical music?



Not as of yet.  There are some design differences such as the 240s being semi-open and presumably not as iPod compatible which would deter me from using it outside, but I will say....
 
The DT660 I find superior to the K701 and K501 for classical.  Hopefully I will get to have it go head to head with the K240s in the upcoming weeks.

How would these headphones compare to the Alessandro MS-1? I know they're probably totally different league, but I've been looking for a closed headphone that has a similar sound signature to my MS-1 and someone has recommended the DT660.
 
I don't listen to rock or anything that's bass-heavy, prefering to stick to pop, country and instrumental (mostly piano). I enjoy the bright-sounding MS-1 with these genres, as they seem to give my songs a different "life" when compared to listening through my speakers. So I would love to hear your opinion on how these cans fare when compared to the cheaper MS-1. Thanks! :D

I have never heard the MS1s.  However someone who bought the DT660 on my recommendation PMed me recently and told me that the DT660s were in their opinion better than their K501 or MS1i.  This person already posted in this thread:)  But I'll let them talk about it if they like.

Thanks. Would certainly love to hear that person's review on the DT660! Right now I'm trying to decide between the Shure SRH440 and this, if only there's a way for me to try them out in person... but being in Australia, there's little places that offer such options. D:

I was talking about the K-240MKll, and not the K-240S (S-as the Studio version). Anyway... looks like the DT660 share the same headband as the Ultrasones (not a comfy one) .

Thank you for your review.
As I was looking for a closed "classical headphone" I bought them on your advice. I found the soundstage of the dt  770 very tiring as it seamed the instruments where behind my left and right ear. Also had good experience with the analytical sounding inear Phonacs for classical music.
After listening for a few weeks I am very happy with them. They produce a smaller soundstage even with the stepdance, which amp produces a kind of arctic soundscape.
I use them a lot with the total bithead although I have to put the volume way up. 
I once switched back from Denon 2000 (I know, sometimes I just like to blow my head off with bombastic classical music) to the dt 660 and the difference in detailing was huge.
Great advice

That's awesome! Thank you.
 
I'm not sure I ever felt that the DT770 ever felt much behind my head.  I have to check again.
