I need to resolder the internal connections on my HD535's. Any suggestions? Things I need to be aware of after pulling them apart 3 times over the past 4 years?

Just bought the DT880s 600ohm.

I don't know why because I just bought the HIFIMAN HE-400s as well.

I guess it was the price that suckered me in.

I think I'm gonna' sell my AD700s.

I'm interested in someone grabbing the Beyerdynamic T90s and sharing how they sound.

Waiting for the T80s to come out too.

Because you ultimately lose money doing that. It's like buying a car, but not as bad. As soon as you take it off the lot/out of the box it's devalued simply for being 2nd hand.

Joining with my recently semi-restored AKG K241 (the one from 79 i think)

It was in a terrible condition, the jack was completed corroded and the cable was all chewed out. Happily the headphone itself was only covered by A LOT of dust.
i had to put that foam in the headphone because without it, it hurts like hell mad.gif . one thing i still cannot figure out, is it possible to replace the elastic?

I don't know why but for a while now, I thought you already owned the DT880 (600ohm) - how are you liking the Beyers vs the HiFiMAN (maybe a small comparison between the two, strengths, weaknesses, etc.)?

BTW, congrats and enjoy.

Really nice job cleaning them up; how do they sound (details)?

Really nice job cleaning them up; how do they sound (details)?

In the sense that I've had the Beyerdnyamic DT880s at my disposal almost any time I've wanted, yes, I've had them for a long time, but I've never owned-owned them and had them in my collection. Now I do, because the price was good enough and I have money exuding from the pours of my body.

I already know what both sound like and as soon as they arrive (they haven't arrived yet) I'll write up a review comparing the two.

The DT880s are the more bright and airy headphone. They're the better gaming headphone. They're the more analytical headphone. They're the wider sound stage headphone. They're the cheaper headphone and are excellent for their price point.

The HE-400s are darker headphones, they have a very uhh..natural sound to them. Natural in the sense that they produce sound almost effortlessly, it's like natural....with ease sound..gosh, it's very difficult to describe..the only way I can best describe it is if you know what a Planar Magnetic headphone sounds like. It has that planar sound to them. While the HE-400s are no slouch in the soundstage department, it's very clearly inferior to the DT880s. It's somewhat narrower. It's a different type of soundstage and I think because the HE-400s have very "upfront mids" that may also be effecting the sound stage. The detail of planar magnetic drivers are superior to those of dynamic drivers. You'll get more detail and instrument separation out of the HE-400s. The build quality on the HE-400s are fantastic, but the headphone leans on the heavy side which worries me slightly. I may need to replace the HE-400s pads depending on which they come shipped with. I believe they're the velours in which case great, but if they ship my the leather then I'll have to buy the velours which are only 10 dollars from HIFIMAN.

I hear the DT990s earcups can also fit on the HE-400s.

Anyway, let me stop before I write a review right here.

As for that AKG headphone, I'd almost be tempted to write with whiteout over the AKG text to finish it up, but I know that would look crappy and devalue he headphone. I believe the AKG headbands are easy enough to replace if you wanted to.

Thanks mate thumb.gif
While using with my amp and turntable, they are astonishing for classical music and some rock/metal songs (mostly from judas priest and queen). Blues, jazz and some others genres they are also great, but i think the bass should be a little bit stronger to feel the beat from the drums. The thing that impressed me the most is that they isolate the sound pretty well.

while using on my pc I really cant say anything, as I am still using a stupid onboard realtek ¬¬ I have to ajust the volume to 75% to hear something mad.gif
