The DT 770 / 600's arrived today, I got a couple hours with them at work. My impressions so far:
Nice bass extension, but not boomy. Airy but a bit dry highs, mids much more up front than my D7000's. Lacks a bit of refinement compared to the D7000, and sounds a bit well, more closed in, yet the sound stage seems a bit better. So far, I am enjoying them. I'll need a bit of time to decide if they are keepers. They might be, just for the comfort, and the fact that they sound really quite good.
I listened to them out of the Apogee Duet2, and it was really a nice pairing. The Duet2 is better than the Duet firewire, and really deserves to reclaim it's cult status around head-fi. It is quite good. That said, it is also kinda big and heavy, so it may not stay with me.
Surprise, surprise! The DT 770 / 600's have a mini plug, with screw on 1/4" adapter. Curiosity got the best of me, and I plugged it into my iPod Touch / Pico Slim combo, wondering if it would even get to a moderate volume. It actually got more than loud enough around 1 to 2 o'clock, and would go to well past my comfort range easily. It didn't sound as solid as the Duet2 did, but it was surprisingly not bad at all. Good enough, in fact, that my DT1350's will go up for sale a bit more aggressively as soon as I get some photos of them for the FS post.
Who'd a thunk it? DT 770 / 600's and a Pico Slim are nicely listenable! The little Pico Slim never ceases to amaze me. It is getting to where it may be the only piece of kit I don't sell off in exchange for a new flavor.
