I just got these headphones and they don't appear to be loud enough with my Ipod. I'm not looking to spend a whole lot of money either. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.
Which amp for Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80ohm headphones?

CMOY? You can get one for a fairly good price off eBay by BioScienceGeek.
Do you have one of those volume limiting iPods or have a volume limit set up? Max volume on my iPod Touch with the 770/80 was pretty loud for me :X. Any louder would be quite unhealthy :\
To anyone who plays console games and has the DT770 Pro 80s.
GET THE MIXAMP, NOW.
The DT770 Pro 80s have become my fave headphone after playing Lost Planet 2. The Mixamp's DH and the DT770 80 = PURE GAMING BLISS. It's BETTER than a home theater, IMHO. The positional cues are as of right now, the VERY best I have heard from headphones, period. I played the game for 15 minutes, and my jaw was on the floor the entire time. What a way to showcase the strengths of the DT770 Pro AND the Mixamp.
I have been gaming with headphones for a LONG time, and this is the first time I literally felt like I was in a movie theater, with audio coming absolutely everywhere. Bassy explosions, crazy monsters flying about. I'm awestruck.

I have a DT770. I use a JDS Cmoy. It's great. The bass boost feature is awesome. Here's a link: http://www.jdslabs.com/products.php
I also have a Total Bithead. I prefer the JDS.
YES i agree. the bass boost on this amp doesnt seem to boost the amount of bass, just allow the phones enough juice to pump out the bass they are going to attempt to pump out regardless of whether the bass boost is on or not. haha.
this is a fantastic amp, only problems i have with it is that 1) the volume knob is super easy to bump, and sometimes i end up cursing and throwin my phones off. good thing these ones are built well. 2) the bass boost is on the inside. but whatever.
