Hello everyone I hope you are doing great.
So I had made another post about this but kind of wanted some more info/ changed my mind.
I have the DT770 pro 80 ohm and I am looking to upgrade in the near future. I will make a direct comparison to the sound of this headphone as to what I want.
I generally really like the 770 but I want to hear something that is overall higher end.
First of all the things I would like to fix are: High frequencies do sound a bit harsh sometimes especially with loud volume. Siblance is noticeable sometimes. I am not super sensitive to this but it appears to be a bit fatiguing. I want something with smoother or more laid back or sweeter high frequencies.
Second thing is that the mids do sound a bit distant. Again not a huge issue I don’t care that much about vocals but I would like them to be a bit more present.
Here are the things that I like on this headphone but I want to specifically improve: Detail and resolution. (Well I guess this is obvious since I want to move higher up).
Soundstage and imaging: I like the soundstage of the 770 but it is a bit two dimensional. It gets wide but it does not have a lot of depth. Imaging is not there to support it either. Very left or right.
I want something that can create a nice space around you that is believable and not too extreme. I want it to scale in all directions if possible and combine with accurate imaging.
Finally the bass: I really like the subbass and rumble of the 770 and I would very much like to increase it in volume and clarity or at the very least keep it as is.
Open or closed: Not a preference here as long as it can do what I want it to. Only concern if the bass loses the impact on the open.
50% music, 50% movies/single player gaming. Everyday use. Not the most critical listener. I also do play some competitive games form time to time (hence the imaging requirements).
What do you guys think? Is there one headphone that can do all this or should I split the needs into two 500Euro Headphones?
Please keep in mind I am in the EU so nothing from DROP or the American Brands
Thank you people
