After buying a duff purchase yesterday, demoing/ sampling isn't really enough for me.

I went to a big meet last weekend, i managed to try some nice stuff, and i ended up buying some dt1350. Sound wise, they are significantly better than my 990 premiums. Tesla drivers are lovely. However, 30mins of listening kills my ears, the clamp?! I stretched them all night over a bicycle helmet, helped slightly. I feel that even if they get to a lighter clamping force over time, the isolation and bass will degenerate. I also found them even smoother and richer than when i demoed them.

But unfortunately they're going back. Real real shame. If they were encased in a full cup and felt like the 990, they would be a serious winner.

So about the % increase mentioned. Not at all sound wise. I paid £20 more than my 990s, i got a hell of allot more.

Regarding the comfort again. When i read reviews on these, i shrugged them off as previously people always reported M50s to be uncomfy. I've done 6 hours with a little break here and there at work with no worries, so thought people were just being slightly more critical.
