Hi guys, hoping someone can help me out here, I've got my eye on a the Beyerdynamic DT770 simply because I want headphones that will not leak sound out while listening at a relatively mid-high volume, I mostly listen to blues/classic rock, the odd occasion of some 90s hip hop. I don't have any interest in electronic music such as trance techno dubstep etc, are the DT770's good for sound isolation? or is there similar choices you can recommend me as I'm quite private when it comes to my music. I would like to keep the price under £200.
I had the sennheiser hd595's before I got my current headset which is corsair vengeance 2000 that leak out quite a bit when I'm using them.
This will also be my first time jumping into getting an amp/dac combo and was thinking of getting FiiO E10, would this be a good for the dt770's, strictly for desktop use as I won't be using them outside.
The 770 is very good for comfort and isolation, but very bad for blues and classic rock because of its recessed mids.
Both the Shure SRH 940 (neutral sound signature) and Ultrasone Pro 750 (bass and bright--but with better mids than the 770) are superior, especially for blues and classic rock. Based on U.S. prices, both would fall within your budget. However, your mileage may vary in the UK.
