Looking at stepping up my current headphones and am tossing up between either the Beyer DT770 (250ohms) or the DT880 Edition (250ohms). I am able to get the DT880 Ed. at a cheaper price but am wondering if, as someone who would use them primarily for gaming and varying genres of music, the neutrality of this pair wouldn't be to my taste. Although I still want the clear and quality presentation of the mids and highs that the DT880's provide.
-Would be powering either pair with a FiiO e11.
-Isolation isn't really an issue if a more open design won't affect sound quality.
-Don't want to spend really that much more than a pair of DT880's.
-Not able to go anywhere and listen to each pair before I buy.
Could be asking too much but I want to try get it as right for me as I can the first time.
The DT 770 is a basshead lite can with recessed mids.
The DT 880 is an audiophile class can and is one of the best in its price class.
