I feel even the M50 surpass the DT770 in overall sound, though soundstage is definitely the martyr there. There's much more competition in that price range now, and good competition at that. Of course that's purely preference biggrin.gif.

Well recently my latest hand-me down gaming headset started to fall apart(razer carcharias) and i started doing some research on headsets and microphones. At first i was very overwhelmed and had no idea what to spend my money on lots of people and reviewers suggested the Superlux 668b and they were on amazon for $37. So i figured what the heck, they are cheap enough, so if i dont like em not much was wasted. Well i got them in today and now i understand. The sound quality is sooooo much better than any audio peripheral that i currently own. I know most of you guys are worlds ahead of me when it comes to sound quality but i just had to share my experience! Thanks for reading! thumb.gif

Always cool to see someone's journey/story of audio smile.gif. I've shown people at work what more expensive headphones sound like and what many different 'budget' pairs sound like and they're always so surprised the variation and difference that a headphone can make for music. I still think a lot of people just think music needs to be loud and bassy to sound good, but we all know that's not the case wink.gif.

Giving the Creative X-Fi MB3 software a go. Within 5 minutes I'm already reminded of previous Creative software experiences biggrin.gif .

Update: oh dear, already Windows 10 has lost sound devices and needed to reboot audio again since installing. The X-Fi control panel also failed to render correctly on the screen after minimising it and that caused issues.

I really like the design of BeyerDynamic and I think the 770 is a really good looking pair of headphones, but I guess that is personal preference. The K5XX derivatives are too thick and bold and those are pretty much the main reasons why I dont like them so much in terms of aesthetic appeal.

Was in a huge audio shop on Monday, they had a stand full of headphones which were available for testing. Was able to test out the HD600s for the very first time. Was really surprised how easy they were to drive despite them being 300 Ohm, the headphones were not plugged to any amps so I just tried them out with my iPhone 6S +, was able to reach good valume without any issues whatsoever. Of course the headphones did not open up to their fullest potential but still, never thought I could reach such good volume on such high impedance headphones.

Creative software has never behaved itself for me. It did for a spat of like 8 months one time, and then all of a sudden it was like, 'You seem to be enjoying yourself....it'd be a shame if that just....ended...'

Yeah, I thought maybe their software quality may have improved in the last 5-6 years since I used a Creative product but that doesn't appear to be the case unfortunately. Had weird sound popping in EAX games that I thought Alchemy would sort out, the MB3 UI totally messing up and require a program close/reopen and on one ocassion MB3 took all the sound devices with it when it crashed.

On the plus side games can see an EAX connected device and the effects appear to be functioning properly and I can disable everything in SBX Pro except for the Surround feature as I intended. Most importantly (and something no screenshot showed me) is that like the Razer Surround I can target any device as an output - even the FiiO E10K USB DAC... or the Samson Meteor biggrin.gif .

Always cool to see someone's journey/story of audio smile.gif. I've shown people at work what more expensive headphones sound like and what many different 'budget' pairs sound like and they're always so surprised the variation and difference that a headphone can make for music. I still think a lot of people just think music needs to be loud and bassy to sound good, but we all know that's not the case wink.gif.

I'd rather throw more cash at an HD600 or similar. I don't think the $100 - $150 range is terribly good on value these days.

The HD600s have a sound of their own that people either love, or go to the HD650s. I'm one of the latter. However, they still go for 200+. There is still ridiculously good value to be had in the $100-150 range.

Haha, don't take offense tongue.gif. I had the thought in my mind of 'people who get in their car and turn the music up loud and the bass to 10 on the stereo and it's just a nasty distorted mess'. People I know like that tend to do the same thing for headphones. I want more bass so I must use more volumeeee.

The HD600s are CHF 500 here in Switzerland, the DT770 CHF 140. Not only its a completely different pricing tier, it is a whole different headphone. Open Vs Closed. What I dont like about the HD600s is their poor build quality, plastic and the cheap cable, it is also very fragile. They sound great though and have a very natural sound, at least that is what I was able to deduce while using them for about 5 minutes. But as I just got myself the DT 1990 Pro, I doubt I will be getting yet another pair of headphones at such a price range.

The DT770, especially the 80 ohm version has reached a type of icon status, a legendary headphone if you want. Its just that desire of owning a classic is what drives me to buy the headphone. The fact that I Own a Custom One Pro however kind of makes the neccessity of a DT770 even lower.

IMO the HD6X0 are not fragile headphones. Are they plastic? Yes, but that doesn't make it fragile. It just makes them light weight and very comfortable to wear. The cable isn't the greatest though, I definitely agree with that. Not to mention the piss poor connector they use. I DO hate the color though. Would it kill them to make an all black or all white version instead of that satin grey or speckled blue? mad.gif

Meh, while the DT770 is definitely a classic, I would hardly call it legendary, not by a long shot. Legendary would be the AKG K1000 or Denon D7K. The DT770 was a good pair of closed headphones back in the day when competition in its price range was sub-par. Nowadays, it's just another pair of closed headphones under $200. I had traded one of my headphones for it way back when and dumped it off for the same purchase price in less than a week. tongue.gif
