Thank you for the update Clownzor.
Well, sounds good to me. Thanks for the info chaps.
  Hello : )   I already hear some of you, at the mere sight of the title, shouting and crying, saying that you don't buy 600€ to use them unamped, that a mobile phone will sound better, that i should burn in the fires of hell. Please read (a bit) further (or just skip the post and read the tl,dr version at the end if you don’t have time to lose). I have so far a (as the title says) a DT770/80 that is, if not dying, at least pretty sick: it rattles, the pads are...
Also interested in this, as one of these will most likely be replacing my DT770

Were you near to the max in order to have a decent volume ? Quote: Look at Alessandro for reasonably prices 'grados' shipped free worldwide. The MS Pro is great and costs $700(€550) shipped. (RS1 is ~ €830 here) If that is too much, the MS2i is a lot cheaper. I thought...
Quote: You can try the K701 or the RS-1. As i stated before, as much as i'd like a grado, that's not an option, since they're sold at grotesque prices ( 700/800€ ) in France. Concerning the k701, FWIR it may not have enough bass. I want less bass, but i still want some . Plus i'm not sure it's the best choice for rock, am i wrong ?

I love the beyers, don't get me wrong, but good god, they can be pretty fatiguing sometimes. Closed cans would be a plus as well, since i'm essentially using headphones in order not to disturb anyone, but mostly not to be disturbed by anyone. But i've got a prety...
Any more advices ?
