The Dido D901 by Perfect Sound

The Dido undeniably has better bass. It has better definition, much more slam, and better timbre. No contest there. The midrange is a little closer. While both have…bad midranges, the Dido is less bad, which doesn’t say much. The Beats have the same funky timbre, but ramped up a notch. The treble is actually a tossup. While the Dido has better treble, there’s less of it compared to the Beats Pro.

All in all, I’d like to think of the Dido as a caricature of modern society. It’s ostentatious, priced high for the sake of it (there is nothing in this headphone that warrants it costing anything more than $300), and bassy. It has few redeeming qualities and honestly, it’s only the second headphone (the first was the Velodyne vTrue) I feel comfortable suggesting people avoid. It would be okay at $200, but even then, the fact that it can’t even keep its cable in its jack is weird. Perfect Sound have fallen a bit short on this and we can only hope there is a v2 to remedy these current problems.
