Ultrasone HFI 780 VS. Ultrasone 750 Pro VS. Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro

Title says it all...

 

Which one is better based on your experiences?

 

I am open to suggestions but I would like to keep it within these 3 headphones since I have been looking at so many brands for the past few weeks.

 

Thank you for your assistance.

And what type(s) of music will you be listening to most often?

Hi!!

 

I can wholehearted recommend the Ultrasone Pro 750.

 

Build like a tank, comfy and awesome sound.

 

Cheers,

I use the 750 for live mixing but I don't think it's comfortable compared to the Beyer.

I'll most likely be using this on the laptop and possibly an iPod.

 

I'll probably listen to electronic, dubstep, rap, and pop.  I'll also be using this for games as well.

 

Is it true that the DT 770 Pro needs an amp to be good?  I don't want to be spending a lot on an amp :/

Look - all three are very good headphones, but they do have different sound signatures.

 

If you like bass, for example, you might lean towards the 770's

with all else being equal.  They have plenty of bottom.

 

As is pretty much always the case, you'd do best to listen to them.

If that's not possible, be sure to buy from a retailer who permits returns.

 

As for needing an amp, the use of one will benefit any and all of your choices.

They'll play, of course, and sound 'good' without an amp -

but will improve with one.

 

The good news is that you don't have to spend a fortune to get

a reasonable amp.  A Fiio, JDS Labs Cmoy, or similar will do the

job for about $60.

I'll most likely be getting the DT770s...

 

But is there a difference between the 250 ohm, 80 ohm, and the 600 ohm?

 

I'm a noob!

The sonic differences are miniscule. Miniscule. Let me emphasize that one more time: miniscule.

 

The 80ohm will play off more devices with less amplification needs than the 250hm and 600ohm respectively.

 

Get the one that is the cheaper one, that will play off what you have now, or off what you play on adding later.

 

If at all in doubt, get the 80ohm PRO. Seriously. It's a great headphone, and the 600ohm version honestly doesn't sound that different. Certainly not a difference to justify an additional $100 to my ears.

 

Very best,

All DT-770 should be used with a headphone amplifier, the 250 & 600-Ohm are a must for an amp

The DT-770 Pro 80-Ohm (the bassest model) can work decently without an amp, but need to use an amp to bring out the best (like the bass).

You can get a Fiio E6 headphone amplifier for around $30

But for some reason the 250 ohm is less expensive for about $20...I'm looking at Amazon.  I can't find a cheaper place. 

 

Can the 250 ohm version work well without an amp?
