Does anyone who own these also own the D600's?  Care to compare them?
DT770 Pro 250 is a different headphone than the 80 version, it's considerably brighter, has less bass and more mids, it's quite similar sounding to T1's when I compare them directly, but with just slightly more bass punch, and slightly lower resolution, but it's sharper sounding and feels more detailed. It's more detailed and open sounding than 80 ohm version, but more sibilant and fatiguing as well. I would call it a slight upgrade if you like that kind of sound, but it's...
Ah damn...another attractive closed back headphones ruined by the fact that the earcups are too small to fit regular sized ears without them touching the earpads....the same mistake was done by Momentum 2.0's.  Why do manufacturers do this? Do they enjoy torturing people?
  What if I told you that dedicated headphone amplifiers have resistors in the signal path as well? Or that the volume pots themselves are actually resistors?
  True, I don't really see the big deal with resistors, it's really simple, just basic physics. If implemented properly they won't do anything to the sound apart from making it less loud, that's pretty much it.  It's like taking a speaker output and instead of plugging headphones straight into it and then having to work with first first few degrees of rotation on the volume knob because anything above that would put too much power into headphones, they put resistors into...
  All you need to consider is the fact that people who design these amps are not some random guys, they know what they're doing, they're engineers and audiophiles, people who love good audio as much as you and me, on top of that, we're talking about big companies with decades of experience, and a lot of people, money and knowledge that allows them to do far more research and development than say a small company that makes a couple of headphone amplifiers. If they can make...
  The only receivers I've heard were Marantz and Denon, all that I've heard from Onkyo were integrated amps.  As I said, in general integrated amps sounded better than receivers, obviously, but none of them sounded bad.
Get a used integrated amplifier with a headphone output, that is by far your best bet. No 100 dollar headphone amp (or anywhere near) will give you more power or sound quality.  Any entry level NAD, Marantz, Denon, Cambridge Audio, Onkyo, whatever you can find.
  Haven't heard any such effects. Quite the opposite, the sound is very dynamic, quick and lively with high impedance headphones.
   Yea, it's all subjective, but the point is, they don't sound bad. And the general consensus on head-fi is that if you plug any headphone into anything other than a dedicated headphone amplifier it's going to sound like crap, which is simply totally untrue. Especially when it comes to actual dedicated audio components such as integrated amplifiers. Most people just assume the headphone outputs on them are just for show, just for cosmetic purpose and don't actually...
