    That's why I have good quality audio hardware. I also despise mouthbreathers. If you can't set up your equipment properly, you don't deserve the luxury of voice detection.

    Also a very legit choice, but pricey!

    Upgraded my AD700 to a SoundMagic HP200

    It really needs the burn-in, once it is burned it, it is AWESOME bang/buck. God the detail is great and it's a fun sound signature without it being too tiring, perfect for me. Great all around, games movies or music

    small update..

    the price dropped even further and I nabbed the last open box that only had damaged packaging instead of cosmetic damage like the rest of them. Grabbed myself a Fisual S-Flex Mini 1.5m 3.5mm Jack to 3.5mm cable along with the headphones to replace the stock one too as i have read on head-hifi that the stock one is passable but not of superior quality

    Hiya guys, I've got a quick question. Which one, DT 990 Pro or DT 770 Pro, would be better in terms of frequency flatness, as they're pretty much the same price right now?

    From what I've researched of those two in the pas I think the 990s would be a better bet... I've heard the 770's are much more elevated in the bass department. If you want flatness I don't think either one would be your best option. But then I've heard amazing things about both pairs of cans, and there's something about owning headphones that feel indestructible. Keep us posted on what you purchase!

    :toast:

    I prefer bass heavy 'phones, but I don't like to sacrifice my mids and hi's. I have really come to apprecite my HE-400's for performing so well here. No they don't have D2000 bass, but guess where those have been since I got these HE-400's a year ago? In storage.

    Seems to me that DT770's elevated bass is due to their closed design, which is kinda a turnoff for me. Oh well, looks like the DT990's are a clear choice for me then.

    Check this out: http://www.headphone.com/pages/build-a-graph

    http://graphs.headphone.com/graphCo...]=2141&graphID[]=2131&graphID[]=2241&scale=30

    I don't know if those are "Pro" on that graph, but in general it looks like the 990 is probably flatter. Plus, it's a higher model number, so that always means better, amirite?

    I think they might have fixed the cable in later production runs.

    i'm not positive. I want to say I read someone measured the impedance of the stock cable 6 months ago and it was fine but I could be making that up. nice headphone :)

    the 990 Pro would be flatter but there is a lot of competition @ $250-$350.

    Got these Fideliohs in. They sound nice on my phone but a shitty kind of nice. definitely a headset that needs to be amped. Currently listening to some stuff like Celldweller & Blue Stahli (headphones plugged into my Creative SB-Z) and so far pretty impressuuu~

    Bass at the moment seems quite boomy but i heard this tightens up a lot more once they have been proper burn in (some quotes in headhifi saying at least 150hrs burn in) Looking forward to using these in gaming.
