Summary: TL;DR: Don't be lazy and read it all
Hey guys, Zero Decibels here with a review of the Beyer COPs, I got these for about 158$ from a local store. As usual, I'll be judging these from 4 aspects; Design, Build Quality, Comfort, Sound Quality
Nice design, especially with all the customizable stuff. Has potential to be the most colourful headphones if done right. Then why does it only has 4/5? Because these things are HUGEEEEEE!
Pros: CUSTOMIZABLE SOUND, Comfort, Sound Quality
Cons: Not portable AT ALL, Ears get hot, Almost no accessories, Vocals VERY reccessed
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 year. 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. Just an instruction manual, 3.5mm detachable cable and an allen key.
Pros: Decent sound (improved with velour pads), Ok bass (when set between 2-3)
Cons: Very long burn in time, Not portable, didn't like pleather pads, mids slightly to recressed,
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.
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: 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: 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: Dont get why people are so excited about the ability to change the bass with the switches on the cups...for one you have to do it to both ears and they are very hard to move. if you have an amp/dac controling the bass that way is a better option for your headphone. These things totally dug in to my jaw.....put pressure on the eustachian tubes. The bass is totally untextured and sterile. Yes the bass is prominant but not in an enjoyable way.
Summary: Good quality solid product. I purchased these mainly for use with my brand new Yamaha Clavinova CVP605PE digital keyboard. My feeling is the bass could be a bit louder but that is perhaps to do with the ohm rating of these headphones, as well as myself liking a lot of bass? They are good with MP3 / iphone etc for music in general, but you do need to use them to get used to them. Great build quality & certainly eliminate outside noise when they are in use.
