Darth Beyer V6 (...the evolution of Darth Beyer, so good it good it's back to it's traditional name).
I start with a new pair of DT770/80, then implement my sound and aesthetic modifications with your choosing of one (or two) of my different exotic woods. I transform a borderline (IMO) stock pair of cans into a world class set of headphones. With their redesign to version six, a number of things in both categories have changed. Sound wise, the amount and quality of midrange (and significantly over stock) to my ears, is fantastic. Mids described as meaty and well fleshed out by a trusted listener, I would agree totally.
These have the vibe I was hoping for when engineering these, and for awhile thought was unachievable. These still include a set of Korina sound chambers inside. Those have added the magic to the mids, Korina being excellent for mid tones. Lows and highs seem just right to me. I'll say it again, I think these are… SWEET!
A decent source and Solid State amp are needed to realize their potential. I have not tried these personally with tubes, but I do know that past versions do not excel as they do with SS. Please read sub bass cautions on FAQ page
Now available… A different center wood of your choosing! First time I've offered a two wood combo for direct order. Simply choose your base wood, then your center wood (the black circle as shown above pics). The edges fan to the center circle, whether you choose two woods or one.
Darth Beyer V6 are my favorite closed headphone at any price (I've owned or heard most including R-10's), and really a heck of a value IMO. I designed them to what my ears like to hear, from my long time experience as a musician and studio work.
DB-V6 slant towards the center portion of the wood sides, along with the largest yet Abalone dot marker on their left top side. Makes it easier to determine left side when putting them on. Now available with plush leather headband V2 (deerskin with black snaps).
A break-in period of 100-125 hours is recommended for performance potential to be reached. DB-V6 is BlackCopper, BlackMax, BlackCrystal, BlackTop or my fave, BlackGold upgradeable. Optional with a headphile COA.
