Before I pull the trigger real soon, I just want to make sure that the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80ohm is a good choice for a person that's receiving a good pair of closed-cans? He's mainly going to use it for movies. Another question is that how long does it take to break these in? It's just that its going to be going to be his Xmas present and I hope the quality will be there for what I'm paying for.
On another note, I'm ordering my Audio Technica ATH-M50s (coiled) today. It's going to be my first audiophile phones.
Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80-Ohm will work without a headphone amplifier, but it's best to use one.
Does your friend have headphone amplifier?
Break in time, just leave them hook up and running when not being used, 50 hours maybe.
