Darth Beyer V7 & V7-A (A decade evolution of Darth Beyer)
I start with a pair of DT770/80, then implement my sound and aesthetic modifications... with you choosing one of my exotic woods, etc. I transform a borderline (IMO) stock pair of cans into a world class set of headphones. With this redesign to version seven, a number of things have really changed...
Sound wise, the V7 is similar to the V6, only with less bass. I have gotten a number of inquiries of this request, so here it is. With a V7, the internal ports are blocked (not done in any previous version). There also are no port on the wood cups, nor any plugs… (see pics)
The V7-A is adjustable, with three sound options controlled by you… The V7-A can virtually match the sound of a straight V7, by inserting the supplied solid plugs into the wood cups. Alternately, the plugs with holes in them give them the sound I most use, similar to V4/5/6. With no plugs installed, the bass gets BIG and better overall as the old V3 that hip-hops.
A decent source and amp are preferred to realize their potential. I have not tried V7's personally with tubes, but I do know that past versions do not excel as they do with SS. I still have not heard a better closed headphone than a Darth Beyer V4/5/6 or V7-A.
Darth Beyer V7's have an Abalone dot marker on the left top side of cup base. Makes it easier to determine left side when putting them on. Now available with deerskin leather headband V3.
A break-in period of 100-125 hours is recommended for performance potential to be reached. DB-V7's are BlackCopper, BlackMax, BlackCrystal, BlackTop or my fave, BlackGold upgradeable. Optional with a headphile COA.
