I am assuming I should just stick with my Amiron Home headphones over these.
Depends what you want to do with them. In my opinion, the DT990 is more for people in studios who mix and master music. The Home model is more for personal listening enjoyment. If that's your aim, then you have a great headphone.
From the manufacture via Amazon:
Neither of which were my headphones haha.
Would you say that these are worth getting if I already own the Amiron Home and HD 700?
I would not.
But I'm in the "no-need-to-feel-obligated-to-constantly-buy-new-headphones-every-ten minutes-camp"--admittedly a minority on this site ;- )
On the other hand, some of the folks 'round here seem to be searching for the meaning-of-life and the holly-grail all wrapped up in a set of headphones, and damn the price! Reminds me of that Muddy Waters song "I Just Can't Be Satisfied"-- or worse, a dog chasing its tail.
That's not you is it?
I have a fair bit of headphones but I normally only buy a pair like once a year. Those 2 headphones I mentioned are the only 2 I would consider high end where as I have a few mid range headphones. I have a nose qc35ii but i dont think that really is in the same level of audiophile headphones. Was looking at the Focal Elex as that seems to be the blend of my 2 headphones in the way that I wanted them to be but the price tag..
The DT990 has had my attention for awhile and I am curious to how it sounds.
Well it's only money, as they say. When you get around to the DT990s, be sure to let us 'Po-folks know how they sound.
BTW, I have those QC35s too and I like 'em plenty (good for droning out whatever my sig-other is watching on tv. True, you wouldn't wanna call 'em Audiophile-grade, but they do job. I have a pair of MD 6XX and a pair of 4XXs that I'm pretty happy with at present--should be a while before I need to upgrade to the Focals (hopefully).
yeah, the Bose are my goto headphones outside of the house. My headphones before the HD700 were the HD598SE but it left me wanting more.
If it's just listening enjoyment, man you have enough. If you are using them as a tool to create music in the studio, the DT990s are a good consideration for critical listening, as would Sennheiser 700.
They're just too easy to use--pairs with two devices at the same time (my phone and computer come up instantly when I turn them on), and if you have the Bose app, and know someone with another pair, two can listen to the same device. Plus they're very comfortable to wear.
--what's not to like?
Mostly listening enjoyment and gaming. I want to get back into video editing though, but that isnt the main concern
I've been wanting the Amirons for ages, and I just refuse to buy them. There is a threshold you cross where you hear EVERYTHING in a recording and you just can't hear more. If you're a producer or a sound engineer, you know that fact. Things get different, not better. It's just a game of tastes.
I bought my Amirons on Ebay from an official retailers page. I offered to buy it for lower than MSRP of $600, and my initial offer was declined, but my second offer of $450 was accepted. I've never spent more than $500 on a pair of headphones despite there being so many over that price point that I want or want to try.
