  1. If anyone is interested I came across the following thread, the first post gives some good info on the Beyer line: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/guide-sonic-differences-between-dt770-dt990-models-more.513393/
  2. Thanks, that's good practical advice given the context.
  3. Thanks datacommando. I did come across that thread but must have glossed over Digital Igloo's comments. I did read a comment early in my research, possibly here or somewhere else, that the 250 ohm works better for Helix but couldn't find out where I read it so was unable to revisit the comment. All other commentary on the two was either what people personally own either version but not both or in the context of general usage. I'll take a read of the thread you posted. Had a quick skim and it looks an interesting read. Thanks
  4. Hi All I've settled on the DT770 for guitar playing through Helix Native (Scarlet Solo). There are a couple of threads on here from a few years back asking for recommendations on the preferred impedance plus info scattered across various threads. Good info in those threads but a lot of it is comments from people only owning one impedance. I have also done a lot of reading and watched youtube reviews so have a sense of the strengths and weaknesses of each, but that's in the context of general music listening and other non guitar uses. Anyone able to compare both impedances and recommend which is best for guitar playing - home practice? BTW - I have an Objective O2 headphone if needed to run the 250 ohm version. Thanks
  5. Thanks all for the info. Yeah the rabbit hole of headphones and the audiophile world is something I want to avoid. And honestly I wouldn't even hear the difference unless it's back to back critical listening. DT770 is probably the better option for me. Not overly expensive and is an industry standard for a reason. The way I'm looking at it now is that I prefer not to spend too much on a closed backed design. I have never had closed back headphones and want to experiment with them. So the DT770 is a good, and a cheaper, option for now, and if like the Beyer sound and choose to spend more than I can look at the DT1990 for the open back design (or is the 1990 classed more as semi??).
  6. Hi All I'm looking for a pair of headphones to play through either Helix Native (Focusrite Scarlett) and HX Stomp. This is just for quite practice home playing so no mixing. I have a line on pair of new Beyerdynamic DT1770 at a good price but it will still be more than double what I would pay for a set of DT770 250ohm. I don;t need closed backs so another option is a set of DT1990. Anyone using the DT1770 have any comments how they work with modellers? Better yet anyone able to compare them to the DT770 and feel they are a worthy upgrade? Alternatively anyone using the DT1990 and can comment in how they compare with DT1770? I'd also be interested any comments on general music listening
  7. Many thanks for this. This solved it. Turned direct monitor off and now it works perfectly. Really not sure how I missed this, I missed have flicked the switch when pulling out my digital gear after a long absence and assumed the on setting was correct. Thanks again.
  8. I'm using a Scarlett Solo. My gain knob is set so the input signal doesn't go into orange or red and I have it set as instrument in with direct monitor set to on. The input on Native is also set to ensure I'm between -35 and -12 db. I assume the big knob you're referring to is the monitor knob which set's the volume for the headphone out. Are you suggesting I need to crank this to max and then control output volume in Helix? What other info would you need to help diagnose this problem? Or is the some basic setting that I'm missing? Thanks
  9. HI All I'm new to Helix and had an early version of Helix Native which I have just updated to the current v1.93. I'm running Native in Reaper and am have a problem with the sounds I'm achieving. Best way I can describe it is that it sounds like I am getting mix of dry signal and wet signal. What I mean by this is that if I disable Native then I would have just an unaffected signal through Reaper - bland, dull and floppy on the pick attack. If I describe this as the dry signal and the wet signal as being what I would hear if I turn on Native, then what I hear is a mix of both with the dry signal dominating the pick attack. I have setup Native bearing in mind the correct input and output settings and going through a Focusrite Scarlett set to instrument. I am only using the stock presets for now. The cleaner presets seem to be a bit better but the medium and higher gain presets display this phenomenon badly, particularly the harder I pick. Lighter picking and it's less of a problem but still there. The presets don't sound like any of the demos I'm hearing. I have been using S-Gear for some time now and don't have this same problem, either stand alone or in Reaper. I'm sure there's something basic I am doing wrong or some Native or Reaper settings that I'm missing. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to fix this or where I can look?
  10. Hi All, First time in a long time I'm opening up Helix Native and I'm currently on V1.50. Can I just update with the latest firmware or do I need to do it sequentially. Thanks
