Thoughts on the DX3 Pro+?

>> No.84317754

I have Elears, I like them, no complaints, but I don't really listen to them much so I was thinking of selling them and getting something cheaper for like $250.

Anything with flat bass to 20hz and reasonable treble? Last time I checked most things in that price range had pretty bad bass roll off or ear raping treble peaks but maybe things have changed or I missed something.

The issue is that Koss are pretty much endgame on-ears, no one else worth paying attention to bothers with it(Grado is shit, don't evens start). The new KPH40 might as well be the best you're ever going to get.

If you want some tactile experience from headphones get something that has good slam, there are lists in few places. Otherwise just invest in a decent pair of speakers, subwoofer, and a measurement mic, should be able to get a decent setup under $1k.

Idk if same thing but if i wear blutac'd eq'd stax and move my head up the bass vibrates my ears.

Sadly double earpro doesn't actually double the protection.
You only get 5 additional db and that's before you have to cut it in half to account for irl vs lab conditions.

Also earpro doesn't defend equally across the spectrum, engine noises are going to sneak in via the lower frequencies that most earpro doesn't block well.

That is not the difference, both are just as serviceable.
Pro version has higher clamping force
The 'edition' version has different headband design that is slightly more comfortable.

>> No.84323384

>You would normally expect a pro version to be better.
Not really. I would expect the pro version to be aimed at 'professional' users, i.e. studio environment, where you want higher clamping force. The headphones for at home you'd expect to be more aimed at comfort, makes a lot of sense to me.

>> No.84323394

>I'm coming from gaming headsets. I'm not even sure if my ears could detect a small difference between Ohms, unless it's actually huge.
Also no, you wouldn't be able to notice.
If you are considering DT770s you should be aware that here there is a significant difference between impedance, as the 80 ohm drivers are significantly different to the 32 and 250 ohm drivers. I (and I think most others) prefer the 80 ohms.

>> No.84323446

I never really considered benefits of clamp force, but you make sense there. Maybe my view on headphones is wrong, since I was considering 130€-150€ premium, but now amazon recommends me 1000+€ headphones.

The difference between 770 and 990 is that the prior are closed and the latter open, right? My doorbell is incredibly quiet and I play games for a prolonged period of time, so I was thinking open would be better.

what's wrong with Grado? are you seriously suggesting that there are no improvements in sound quality and comfort over Koss? I've never tried KPH40, but it seems to be essentially identical to their other headphones plus a detachable cable. I get that /hpg/ and headphone users in general don't like on-ears, but the shilling of koss doesn't make sense when they literally don't make any on-ears more expensive than $40. Clearly some improvements can be made over $40 headphones.
I never understood why on-ears was in the OP template given that seemingly in these threads is hostile to on-ears. or at least, every on-ears headphones besides whatever 3-4 Koss headphones are currently being sold.

>> No.84323826

>are you seriously suggesting that there are no improvements in sound quality and comfort over Koss?
Absolutely. Comfort maybe but Koss are so cheap you can mod them easily. Sound quality Koss punches way above it's price range.

Grados are quintessential audiophile bullshit, selling on "tradition" and "it's expensive so it must be good" while sounding worse than not just Koss, but pretty much everything on the market. And you're drinking up the coolaid like a retard.

All headphones sound in your head (even gimmick headphones like HD800S), so I wouldn't put too much priority on soundstage size (especially for music, most music can't really use a headphone soundstage properly which is why I use the HD800S mostly with live concerts). I'd favor what you want from the natural tuning first (HD600 forward mids for example, or the HD560S brightness/bass extension), though with an HD600 this cheap it feels like it's worth getting one and eventually getting a larger soundstage headphone (like akg k712) to complement if you feel the need.

Yeah, they are. From what I gather, TDS-5 copied Yamaha HP-1 in design but actually used German Dual DK-something drivers (sourced? copied?). Then their development continued, TDS-16 "Ekho" or "Spektr" (16 Ohm) is supposed to be the peak meme. Then Soviet Union fell apart, and smaller and worse Ekho N-16-40S (40 Ohm) flooded the market, often sold as "unopened" "TDS-16" these days.
