They're pretty good. I'd take my D2000's over them, but I'd be satisfied either way. The 780's are much more portable, more durable, and more closed (i.e. better isolation), but have a smaller soundstage. The 780's cable is of poorer quality, and the comfort isn't close to the Denon's. I'd still recommend them. They do work well with all types of music.

No, but I bet I'd like them more.

I picked up a pair of klipsch s4 yesterday while at BB after seeing some good comments about them on hf. Listened to them unamped from my iPhone 3g last night and was underwelmed. Have them burning in now though

I have a pair of these I use when I work out. I use them because they are fairly light, the cabling doesn't stick to my cloths when I'm actively moving around they stay firmly in my ears for an hour or more without getting uncomfortable. I wish some of my better sounding ear buds had these qualities.

Hey all, i say to come to this thread for advice on headphones. I have been researching for weeks and the few headphones which have kept coming up are
Audio technica Ad700
Beyerdynamic Dt 770
Audio technica m50s
JVC rx900
cannot remember the rest...
I will be mainly using them for games, music and the occasional movie in the order 40%-40%-20% respectively. I listen to mainly hip-hop,rnb, pop, alternative and basically anything else including rock sometimes but not classical, which is why the bass which comes with the beyer's sounds kind of appealing. It is mainly for home use when i am alone so i am not too fussed about whether the headphones are open or not.
Oh and i am in the Uk and i have a budget of around 150 pounds so any other suggestions would be appreciated. I can go higher if it is absolutely necessary.
Thanks for your help

I can't really comment about the 780's, but I do own the PRO 750's. I'm not sure how I feel about the S-Logic or whatever Ultrasone markets. I believe it does work, it requires some positioning of the phones on your ears, kind of odd to be honest, but it's not that big of a deal compared to using IEM's (inserting, wrap around the ear, cable management ). You can give this a read if you want regarding "how to" about Ultrasone.
