ya hear they take a long time. that was a major thing is i herd it start to lvl out, now i didn't say that it only takes 3 hours as it took me 4-5 days using them for 4-8 hours each day to finely start liking them. i did go from ATH-A700 to the dt770's so it wasn't like it was that big of a transition in headphones.

I just got them now and I turned the bass boost down to the standard level which is 50% and it sounds a little more bassy then my HD 215's, But when I was using them I had the bass boost set to around 80% so I'm pretty happy.

They also sound less muddy and sharp compared to my 215's.

I can really see why people recommend them, There really comfortable too.

My Ultrasone PRO 650 arrived on Friday, I've had about 5-6 hours listening to them so far and I highly approve thumb.gif

That glass head kinda creeps me out...

tUDJ- Your sound setup seems fairly simple in comparison to some I have seen. I'm trying to think of ways to improve my sound quality and was wondering if I really needed more than my Essence STX for my D5000s, and a couple other pairs?

i think you can get more from them with a better amp, the STX is a good dac and a ok amp for hi-fi cans, look into the ODA and ODAC combo though when they are released, that should provide a good current boost for the Denons

You're approaching the territory where the more money you pour into sources and amps, the less you get in return. If you're happy then stay as you are. The D5000 are great headphones, if I were in your position I would consider doing something like the MarkL mod before upgrading the source, the STX is a good card and you'll have to spend a fair amount on an external dac and amp to see a step up in sound quality (keep the law of diminishing returns in mind!). The other alternative is to just get an amp and keep the STX as the source. I can't remember off hand how much the Denons benefit from being amped, I have heard them with and without but that was several years ago redface.gif
