When you setup a price alert you tell them whether or not to email you. Just check the box.

LOL! That might just induce a stroke in Purrin.

Adele's Turning Tables is just beautiful with the DT 880.

They're also heavier and clamp more. I think mids are better on the DT880/600 and bass is punchier. The bass on the HE400 is different. It's very textured and goes deep, but it never satisfied me. It's a good sounding headphone, no doubt, but combined with the comfort issues and making my ears ring every day, I returned them. I ended up getting the DT880/600 a month or so later and I remembered why I loved the 250ohm. They are fantastic headphones.



Personally I thought the E17 was quite nice with my DT880/250. Obviously you can provide much more power to the 600ohm, but the E17 is no slouch. Depending on what you're coming from, I think you'd find it's good with the 600ohm, despite knowing they could sound even better with a more powerful amp.

The 600 Ohm versions require just as much power as fhe 250 and 32 Ohm versions.
But the 600 Ohm versions need more voltage, and less current, so you have to turn the volume up a bit more.
So obviously the 32 Ohm versions will require more current and less voltage, therefore lower volume control setting.

will i notice the difference between the two version with a fiio e17?
some say the e17 works with the 600 ohms , other say it wont sound good. I also read the e17 is not good for the 250 ohm.
Than other say its good with 250 ohm. i read alot of different opinions.
i quess every opinion is true because music is subjective.
but i need to buy one of these two versions. I want the 600 ohms but doubt it will work with the e17.

is there a cheap portable amp/dac like the e17 with optical for ps3 that works well with the 600 ohm?

Lately I've been using my 600 Ohm DT880 a lot with my E17, and I don't think the E17 has any trouble driving those 'phones.
Usually I leave the gain at 0 dB, depends on the source.
i think you'll be OK! biggrin.gif
My preference is a tube amp for the 600 Ohm DTs, but it's not too portable.........

Anyone?

 

I read the O2 is giving 7.3V into 600 ohms.

 

In order to play at live volumes ( 110db ) , it needs 3.9v. Is it stretching the amp at all? Any distortion observed?

 

Thanks

post #2594 of 10436

No, the 02 has enough juice to power to those levels without audible distortion (most amps do, fwiw).

The DT880 600 ohm hasn't moved in price at all on Amazon! Whats up!?frown.gif
