Summary: I got this headphone on sale from NCIX at a price of $170 and I would have only purchased it at this price point. At it's regular price point I feel that the Beyerdynamic Custom One pro is better suited for a $200 price range the Akg K545/K551 and the Sennheiser Momentum provide a better experience in terms of audio quality and soundstage. This is still a great headphone but the low sensitivity of 96Db SPL nominal is a drawback.
Pros: Detachable Cable, Made in Germany, Modular Construction, Great build quality and construction
Cons: Suited for specific Music genres, Low sensitivity (96db SPL nominal), Exposed wire when taking headband off, Velcro headband construction isn't great, Accessories don't include carrying case, Long burn-in time
Summary: The Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro headphones are often rated top 5 headphones under the price of $200. They offer a satisfying listening experience with comfortable padding that makes it stress free. However, the earphones are in fact non breathable due to it being noise isolating, possibly making it a bit uncomfortable for some users. With the contradicting con that it may be used as earmuffs on chilly days. The headphones are study but not flexible.
Pros: Adjustable bass channels, Large over ear for most ear sizes, Clear low to high voices, All detachable and customize-able parts: Cover plates, cord, headband, cushion, Driver soft ear padding, Thick and reinforced cord, Noise isolating, Soft genuine leather headband and ear cups, Adjustable headband
Cons: Not fold-able, Very large - uncomfortable to hang around neck for many people, and bulky to carry, Non breathable ear cups
Excerpt: I am going to school for audio, and I wanted a versatile pair of headphones. <br />When I'm mixing, I can hear a bass heavy mix for what it would sound like through beats or JBL speakers all the way to little bass as someone would hear the mix through cheap earphones. <br /><br />They look great, the wires replaceable, everything is customizable. Very comfortable. Perfect pair of headphones.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Sound proof, Stylish
Summary: I'm relatively new to the scene and my wallet's already hurting! I've read posts on here for months so I think it's finally time I contribute something. This will be my first review, so let me know what you all think :)
I'm going to write this review assuming you've read the less detailed "overview" reviews and that you're familiar with the ins and outs of the product/packaging, etc.
Summary: Clearly I'm not a pro at this but here goes something...
After not feeling 100% satisfied with my T 70's I wanted a little more Umph in the bottom end so I found great deals on the DT 770/80 ($149 new eBay- Contact me if you want the link they have more plus a 60 day return policy... Yes 60 days no questions asked) and the COP ($189 Amazon-Currently you can get them for $162).
Summary: From what I have read the COP's there has been a very mixed reaction to the headphones, some love them and some detest them. I have had these headphones for around two and a half months and have had a bit of a ride with them. So here are my impressions and views.
I am not going to get into the unboxing of these headphones, the packaging is ok but nothing special. Really you don't get much with these headphone in the box.
Pros: Decent sound, good bass, very comfortable
Cons: Very long burn in time, Not portable, didn't like pleather pads, mids slightly to regressed,
Summary: I need to try and be fair with these headphones. but its hard with such a disappointing experience.
bass adjustment is not a gimmick
bass is loose with no real presence
easily damaged with high volumes due to the thin membrane
pads feel uncomfortable(easy fix)
distorts at high volumes
I could get by if the bass was present and sounded a little hollow because...
Pros: detail. minimal leakage, soundstage
Cons: hollow, bass sucks, looks sturdy but not. could keep going
Summary: Great headphones for lovers of rock and dance music, especially contemporary recording ones which contain lot of around-40Hz bass sound. One of the most bass-headed cans among all beyers.
Easily worth the current price 199USD, but this is not for fans of flat cans lovers, treble lovers.
Pros: Customizable appearance, customizable sound, great bass
Cons: slightly recessed mids, not bright highs as their DT990PRO
Summary: Out of the box, these guys are impressive. Killer looks, minimal packaging, obvious sturdy construction - in other words, German.
The sound was very good. They're easier to drive than most Beyer over-ears and they have a very good sound. I wouldn't say great. Coming out of my iPod Classic, the wider-than-average soundstage provided some excellent space for my live rock recordings.
