I have the Beyer DT770 Pro 80s, and they play OK straight out of an iPad.
It's a closed back phone so ambient noise shouldn't be too much of an issue, but some folks might want more sound pressure given a nosiy background (i.e. airplane or bus).
The DT770 250 will produce even less sound pressure straight out of your iPod.
I'm not sure the 250s are truly a viable option unless you opt for an amp.
I have the Ultrasone Pro 900s (not the 750s) but the Ultrasones are louder than the Beyers driven by an iPad.
I consider the Beyers and Ultrasones to be about equal for comfort, but the ear-cups on the Beyers are just slightly larger.
However, I'm not crazy about the snap-on leatherette headband on the Beyers - looks just a tad cheezy to me.
Some of the things to like about the Ultrasone Pro are that they come with their own hard case containing two sets of cables(coiled and straight), two sets of earpads(black and grey velour), and they fold flat for portability.
Also, the Ultrasone's have a headphone cable that screws on-and-off for easy replacement.
Truth be told, you can't go wrong either way.
