The Pro80 version is quite bassy. The 32 or 250 aren't quite as overwhelming.

 


I liked the bass on them today, though this was without amp.
Is the treble different in the 32 or 250?

I wouldnt settle for no less than what the 80 got.

Think I will lock on to the DT 770 (gotta figure out ohm) because non of the headphones I have tried so far have been that comfortable. My head was too big for all other. The Denon AH-D1100 was just too small, and had some terrible trebles.

Do you know about the ultrasones comfort and fit compared to Beyerdynamics?

If you're looking for the same level of bass in an Ultrasone, you'll have to stick with the HFi580, Pro750, or Pro900. They are quite large as well.

I kinda like them, they maybe need a little bit more detail in the mids and treble, but thats just being picky. The trebles is quite good.
What amp would you recommend? Must be able to use it on the road.
And would it be a bad choice to go for the 80ohms?
 

The DT770 Pro 80-Ohm has the most bass.

The 80-Ohm one is for using Rock and Roll to wake up you up in the morning.

Any Beyerdynamic DT in 32-Ohm would have the least bass.

The Beyerdynamic's  250-Ohm versions usually sound almost as good as the 600-Ohm.

The 80-Ohm do not have to use a headphone amplifier, but they sound better with a headphone amplifier, it bring out their best.

Fiio's small headphone amplifiers seem popular, some come with DACs, the E9 is AC powered,

the DACs ones usually feed the DAC using USB, some use USB for charging.

Most Fiio are rated up to 300-Ohms, the E9 600-Ohms.

E11 seem to have the good reviews for sound quality.

I meant the treble should be no less :)
But bass is at a good level, I could go a little lower or a teeny tiny bit higher depending on what model, but that quite where I want it.
Preferably lower than higher.

I think the best thing for me then would be the 80 since it does a better job without the amp as you say.

Then I can always upgrade with an amp in the future or get one right if the money is there.
I really cant decide which amp to go with. Havent got any clue on brand either.

You're not being picky at all- they have a huge hole in the middle of the sound where the mids should be.  And surrounding that is (without amplification) the most screechy treble and exaggerated, wobbly bass I have ever heard in a headphone.  I'd seriously recommend you consider another headphone, like the SRH840.

So now I've also got the shure to think about.

Can you give me any word on how it is compared? and the approx size of the headphones? as mentioned before the Denon AH-D1100 where too small, so was Sennheiser HD650 (they pressed too hard on the bottom end of the earpadding).

And do I need an amp for this one?

post #9608 of 29490

I will now see if I can get the store to take fome a pair of SRH840's too.

Then Id be able to test the Beyerdynamics dt 770 pro 80Ohm vs ultrasone PRO-550 vs Shure SRH840

I'm a Beyer fan.

Beyer prices are getting on the high side.

But there are some really good prices on the Shure SRH840.

Here is a comparison I wrote about those two headphones (among others).  There is a picture too so you can see the size- they're both pretty big.  The SRH840 do very well without an amp, but do improve with one.

I listen to almost only metal and I'm looking for full-size headphones with the following qualities:

- Circumaural

- Good for metal

- Comfortable

- In $200-$300 dollar range (incl. amp if necessary - but at this price point I don't think I'd need an amp?)

 

Right now I have HD-280s - I'm relatively happy with them, especially in terms of fit and comfort, but they're falling apart after 7 years and its time to upgrade.

 

Any suggestions?

post #9612 of 29490

So.....I'm heavily leaning towards the Denon AHD2000's but Amazon sold out, and even so, I don't wanna spend $350 for a pair of headphones when I read other people on here have gotten them in the $200-$300 range. Anyone know where I can get them in that price range?

post #9613 of 29490

Have you tried Buy.com?

Buy used... or just keep an eye out on the couple of deals threads we have around here.

Where is a good place to find used? and what should I be looking for to make sure they are in good shape?
