Hi. Well.. i would like some headphones with a little bit more deep bass and with more isolation. Everything else is superb, very flat response overall.

What's a typical burn-in time for Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro cans? I am using a little over 50hours and felt subjective improve over the out of box already. Requires more?

I'll update the list over the weekend, I'm also going to look at the possibility of having members being able to submit their own data as that seems possible via a form in the OP.

post #11747 of 38344
Well, my 40th birthday is coming up in a couple of months and my wife has noticed that I've been eye-balling the LCD-2 for a while now so I'm thinking there's a possibility... biggrin.gif

Anyone here want to steer me into another headphone or am I doing the right thing?

If its any help, I'll be using an O2 for amplification; I listen to everything except country and not too much jazz. Of all my headphones, I wish that I could combine my Q701 with the Grado and get a bit of the Denon to boot. (One can dream, can't they?)

Loop a pink noise sample for 24 hours with 25/100 on windows volume control.

That's how I do burn in and it works well for me.
