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.
