I apologize if I'm interrupting the flow of the thread, but I need some guidance on purchasing a pair of headphones, particularly the DT770 Pro 80.
Well, a few months after I repaired the soldering joints on my ATH-M50s, the right speaker blew, and now I'm headphone-less.
What I like in a headphone
1. Nice, deep, clean, impacting bass.
3. Smooth mids
4. Very slightly harsh highs

I'm planning to purchase the NuForce uDAC-2 as my headphone amp.
Some Hip-hop, Rap, and R&B
I loved the M50s while they lived and I haven't listened to them amplified in all the time I had them. I'm thinking about purchasing another pair of them along with the amp listed above if the DT770 isn't the right choice for me.
If this helps I also have an Ultrasone HFI-780 and I don't like them at all because there isn't enough bass for my liking and the highs are too harsh on my ears.
I read that the bass on the DT770 Pro 80 is very muddy and it tends to overwhelm the rest of the frequencies. I will attempt to remedy this by doing a mod that involves removing the black plastic piece with the pins protruding outwards along with the white felt that surrounds it. People said that it brings out the mids and highs and slighly reduces the lows.
Thank you for any advice.
Try the Ultrasone HFI 580 if you find the 780 highs too harsh. It also have more bass than HFI 780. Or the Ultrasone Pro 750/900.
