    Just setup this new forum area after some requests by forum members. Feel free to post links to eBay adverts, photos, requests for help with identifying headphones, etc.

    To be honest this is an area we're not that knowledgeable about at HiFi Headphones, so I'm looking forward to learning something about vintage headphones from the community.

    A vintage headphone

    I bought a Beyerdynamic DT-48E in February 2011, which is physically identical as far as I can tell to the DT-48's I had in 1974 through 1989. But the sound of the older ones was not hi-fi, in fact they sounded like a pocket radio speaker. The current version sounds similar to a Sennheiser HD-800, which is interesting given that they look identical to the old versions. This model has been in production since 1937.
