If by "lacking" you mean the lack of extension, then the 250 Ohm version would have fixed that.

So you're basically saying the ATH-M50's have artificially accented high frequency response? I really would like to try the 250 ohm version. Guitar Center only has the 80 ohm version. With the 250 ohm pair, I probably would have to get a dedicated headphone amp, which I'm not willing to get right now.

So I love my DT770 80ohms, but in some songs they sound really bad. The only one that comes to mind right now is "Lost in Hollywood" by System of a Down. The kick drum throughout the song sounds way too loud and pervasive, and it just ruins the song for me. Would switching to the 250ohm version be a big difference or would it still be largely the same sound?

I got these a few days ago. I have to say I am very impressed, and find them superior in many ways to my DT880 600ohm version. Vocals on the DT770's seem to be more full and forward, bass is more powerful and present, but not intruding the mids at all.  The sub bass especially is very good. Highs are about the same to my ears, maybe a bit less of them on the DT770's. BUT,  DT770's feel more detailed to me. I hear nuances and details in music with DT770's that I don't hear at all with 880's.  Soundstage is a bit smaller than on the 880's, but they really don't sound like closed headphones to me.

These or the UE6000?

I've owned the DT-770/80 for several years. I already owned the Grado SR-125, and I was looking for a closed headphone for more bass and sound isolation.  I chose the DT-770 because it was within my budget and well-regarded in the pro-music (as opposed to audiophile) community.

 

I can confirm that they are very comfortable.  Sound isolation doesn't compare to my pair of airline-style earmuffs, but it's better than the open-air Grados, and more appropriate at work.

 

I'm not a bass-head, and although the bass extension is substantial, I don't get the feeling that it's unrealistically bassy.  I listen to a wide variety of genres, from classical to jazz to rock to whatever and I hear more bass variation just from decisions made by the recording engineer than from the DT-770 vs. other phones.

 

Connected to a PC or iPod it will produce recognizable sound, but I think it sounds far better amplified.  I've used: (1) the headphone jack of a 80s vintage NAD preamp; (2) an Audio-GD DAC-19/C2 combo and (3) an Audio-GD NFS 11.32.

 

I didn't feel the NAD had enough ommph (which is why I spent the big bucks on the DAC-19/C2).  With either of the Audio-Gd amps, there's a ton of detail that comes though, the instruments and vocalists separate cleanly in the soundstage, and I hear the backup singers as distinct voices distinctly placed.  A great deal of beauty comes though these phones and it does a solid job with some of my most difficult source material.

 

The last few weeks I've been listening to them alternately with a pair of Sennheiser HD-650s that I borrowed from a co-worker.  Even against something far above its class, the DT-770 doesn't get blown out of the arena: it's just a ... different take... on the music.  There are some songs where I actually prefer the DT-770... songs recorded in such a way that the HD-650s sound like you're listening through a vat of warm honey.

 

I'm currently looking for another set of headphones, but I'm prepared to spend 2x to 3x the amount I spent on the DT-770.  At $180 (bhphoto.com) they provide a lot of value.  (If this isn't too off-topic for an appreciation thread, if I were buying again, I would also look at the DT-880).

I have DT880 600 ohm and can tell you they arent any better than DT770pro. I mean, they're the same class, just a bit different. They have overall sound quality, resolution, etc. Wouldn't tell 880's cost 2 times more just by their sound. No way.

Thanks!  That's very good to know.

DT 770 PRO 80 is an amazing set of cans.

I am planning on getting these and using them for going to school and walking around, etc, I will be powering them out of my e11 on the move and my asus xonar essense stx. Are both of these a fine match?

Yup. Using mine out of ST trough line out or ST's head amp, sounds amazing both ways. Plenty of juice in 64-300 ohm gain settings.

the e11 is a fantastic amp for these while on the move smily_headphones1.gif

ENJOY
