Comfort king. This is a heavy hitter. Very impressive for non-competitive gaming, especially if you wanna feel like you're in a movie theater. The bass is considerably super powered, and would make this a bad choice for competitive gaming. However, the soundstage depth and width is surprisingly large for a closed headphone. These also have the VERY best sense of distance when positioning sounds...PERIOD. Nothing has toppled this headphone when it comes to that. Not the AD700, K701, or HD598. Too bad it's too wild in bass for hardcore FPS gaming. The finer details are prety much sucked out because of the bass.
I've been looking at the DT990 premiums, but I may end up having to stick with a closed set--so I started reading more on the DT770 pro, especially due to the "sense of distance" comment. However, I do not want bass that's so overpowering that it adds such a thick layer to everything else that the details become muddy.
This article refers to how the bass response drastically changes depending on the impedence of the source. That with lower impedence, it sounds more "punchy" (good for music and details), but with higher impedence sources, it would become "boomy" (not good for clarity).
So what happens when you take a pair of 32 - 80 Ohm headphones, connect them to a "low impedence" (i.e. 80 or less) source and amp them? Should this have any effect at all on the bass of the DT770?
