Beautiful, organic, lush. I can't really express how well this can makes music a visceral experience in a way very few headphones do. It's certainly counter to the presentation of a lot of modern hifi-- it's balanced to my ear-- it's not neurotically extracting detail (though I never don't hear something new when I use them even on familiar recordings), it's not driving subbass to impress (though it does have the capacity to make ENORMOUS bass if it's there), it's not trying to attain bat-ear treble (though I've heard it characterized as a 'dark' headphone, which it isn't). What it is is aiming at a good balanced presentation of musical information with adequate weight with detail that comes out of the recording. To my ear, a lot of cans seem to be trying to impress.. at first, i put the DT150s on coming from Beyer 770pros, and found them pretty mid-centric, and maybe even a little dull- but adjusting for a couple of days, I MUCH prefer the 150s. I also have Grado SR80s and my cheapie work cans-- Audio Technica M20s- and it isn't that any of those are outright imbalanced or bad sounding headphones-- I just find the balance, heft, and drive addictive on the DT150's, and I find myself WANTING to listen more, whereas I'm always glad to listen to music on any of the others, but I don't want to just park it and dig through my favorite recordings to the same extent, and really, isn't that the point?
I also use these for recording and mixing music, and their great isolation and non fatiguing sound is super helpful in that regard. There are days they live on my head for a LONG time. And somehow, I'll put them right back on and listen more. Having a reliable sonic reference is SO valuable in the context of engineering, and I've really come to rely on these as just that-- not only are they a great tool, but i also LIKE to listen on them.
Are they goofy looking? Sure. Are the earpads sticky hot and uncomfortable? Not in my experience- but maybe a little bit. Are they hard to drive? I sure don't think so, but I have amplifiers, so don't expect a lot of volume out of a phone. It's not from an era of underpowered Iphones. But neither am I.
I will say though, that I really do think that these cans work much better for people who listen louder than softer. They really do seem to benefit from some volts across the terminals-- so if you're a quiet classical listener and detail extraction at mouse volume is your bag-- they may not suit you nearly as well as some of the hyper detailed cans out there. But if, like me, you listen with some volume... these will take anything you throw at them with aplomb and give you a great listening experience if the Beyer house sound is something you love. I definitely do, and suspect these will be going nowhere until they eventually expire, after which they'll be immediately replaced with another pair.
