actually I read a lot (and I mean A LOT) of opinions about the DT 770 pro 80, still I chose it among many other cans and pulled the trigger! (it's on its way from USA to Dominican Republic, where I live). I don't know if I am a basshead cuz honestly all my headphones are crap, but what made me go the 700 pro 80 way, was that here, and in other forums people agreed in something really important for me: precise positioning! great soundstage and BASS.
I was looking for the best synergy possible between headphones and a dolby headphone processor (I Also got the ear force DSS) and Mad Lust Envy (muchisimas gracias amigo!) kindly gave me key information based on hands-on experience with DH and the 770.
From what I read, it's true, the bass can be boomy but you can EQ it down in a pc and lots of people says that if you EQ yours, taming the bass, these headphones are just great, after learning this I was sold.
But! there is something that you really need to know and it's not good at all, LOTS, LOTS of people are having a bad time with them... there is rattling sound that they suffer if a hair or something get into the driver, some people had fixed this, others not... and this is, in my findings, really common. From all the headphones that I was considering, these were the only ones that had a MAJOR falling rate based on reviews. mostly a hair stock (easy fix) Still I feel I did the right thing!
I got mine used for US$125 and the seller assured me that they don't rattle. I will let you know as soon as I get them, my opinion as a gamer and trip-hop lover!
I spent two weeks doing some hard research for the best headphones to go with DH, and I'm glad I did it, I learned a lot!! and if the 770 don't work for me, I will go with the JVC HARX900.
my 2 cents
