Hey guys, I'm heading to the US real soon and I would like to pick a headphone for 70% movies and 30% games. My budget is around $200. I want something with a good amount of bass. I've been hearing good things about the DT770 Pro 80. How does that compare to the DT880 or the DT990? I know these two are out of my budget but I'm curious about them. I see that the HD598, PC360, and the DT770 Pro 80 are all around the same price. Is there a difference between the DT770 Pro 80ohm and the 250ohm? I'm using the Tritton AX 720 surround sound processor to power my the headphones. I don't need isolation. I rather have open and comfortable headphones. I just want it to have some good bass for single player games and movies. If the HD598 is anything like the HD558 I think I wouldn't like them. Sure they were nice for gaming competitively but it had very little bass.
I also have the Sony XB500 and I find they have too much bass. Everything is muddled by the bass. I want the mid and highs from the HD558 I've tried combine with a little less bass than the XB500
Which one would you guys suggest for my needs? Should I step up and just get the DT990 which from what I've read will do basically all I need? I'm willing to up my budget to $300 if so.
We share the same opinion of the XB500
The DT-770 Pro 80-Ohm is the bassy one, the DT-770 Pro 250-Ohm has more clarity (my favorite).
I like my Sennheiser HD-558s, removing the black rubber tape from the grill (inside the cans) improves bass.
On eBay they sell single tube headphone amplifiers, prices start at $50, ships from China, takes 10 days
