oh yeah, it'll take a couple of months of constant wearing for these things to loosen up.  or you can just stretch them out by hand.

 

Really? I mean the X3 has a pretty OK amp built into it. I can't imagine these would need more power than that.. I can't run most of my headphones higher than 50% volume with it. We'll see how that goes today.

Oops, DAC.  Typo.  Stupid iphone.

 

Anyways, just got the Fiio e12 like 10 minutes ago in the mail.  I thought these 770's sounded good before they were amped.  With this little amp, WOW.  I've got the Wall in Flac and Pearl Jam's newest in Flac fired up.  They sound SO good.  Thanks for the recommendation.

Oh yeah, a decent amp gets more out of them, a desktop amp is even better.

I concur. My Fiio E11 just came in today and everything about my DT770 is better. The sound stage opened up, the bass is louder and tightened up even more, everything went from sounding distant to how they're supposed to (metal is in your face, orchestras actually sound like orchestras), the mids came forward and the treble is louder. It really shows the V shaped signature that it's said to have. It's a more accurate and better sounding headphone now. After running it unamped since I got it in January I finally hear what I've been missing out on.
