The FiiO has nothing to do with it. In any case, the DT 770 Pro 80 ohm version is completely different from the premium line (32/250/600) and should blow away Beats.


That would mean the difference between the 80 ohm and 600 is extremely huge.

It is. The whole 600 ohm version thing has thrown me off; but otherwise it is common knowledge levels of bass in Beyers is 770 Consumer < 880 < 990 < 770 Pro. Envy's 600 had more bass than his beloved 990's.

Yeah, yours are a mistake.  Get your money back.

My MMX300 is definitely the bass light one. The gel pads fixed that tough.

 

But I wouldn't recommend the gel pads to anything else except the bass light dt770.

Yeah this whole situation is messed up now. There are bass light and bass heavy variations of the DT770 floating around and beyer has not come forward on this..

Well I'll be damned... I swapped the pads from a DT770pro onto my DT990/600 like someone earlier in this thread (I think) did, and it adversely affected the sound. Like, really really much... It didn't sound anything like a normal DT990 anymore. There was tons of bass during parts of a song where there isn't even supposed to be any bass, and the otherwise easily noticable highs were non-existant. And the massive overload of bass wasn't even the kind of bass that a basshead would like, it was all muddy and not deep and clean.

 

I wouldn't have thought that beyers were so easily affected by padrolling, this experience makes me want to get a pair or two of those JMoneyAudio leather pads even more!

Yeah, I did that. It was very interesting, but really fragged up the sound. It was REALLY bad, lol.

The DT770 pads are very different than the ones for their open headphones (DT880/DT990).  For one, the pads are sealed entirely.  The bass is probably more about the seal the pads make on a person's head, in my guess.  They soften up in time, the DT770 pads.
