In that case I'm definitely making the C421 or C5 my next purchase...

The DX100 can do that on it's own, but adding an amp gives you that last 1-2% that sometimes makes a difference.

Do that! Proper amping really transforms the DT-770AE - in a good way cool.gif

And you seem to have missed my point... my disappointment that the ultra-expensive dx100 can not drive these headphones to their full potential remains.

That's just silly.

I say this very cautiously: Has anyone heard more than one of this can? I just got a new pair and it is so sloppily bassy that I checked the label on the headphone to make sure something wasn't wrong or the box hadn't been filled with a different DT770... Does not at all seem like my previous pair! I wasn't listening amped though. I'll chime back in after a few days when i get another portable amp.  But curious if anyone else has had the same experience...

 

Don't freak out.

Had played with many pairs, and all of them are great. In case of malfunctions... return if needed.

Huh, that's interesting. I haven't owned more than one pair of this particular model. I have gone thru a few of the other DT770 models, though, and I was surprised at how little bass impact this version had on first listen, even thru my O2. I'm curious if others have had your impression, because I've always been confused by the all the 770 model bass impressions vs what I hear.

Presumably the bass suffers too? A lot?

I think it would take a lot to make the bass suffer on the DT770 LE...there is a lot of it!

What are you driving it with?  It is a close second to my Q-40's for bass - both sub and mid bass are clearly there and plenty of it. 

post #312 of 599
Well given your list of headphones, that kind of makes sense; the LEs have boosted bass around 80-120hz but are mostly neutral, whereas most of the phones you own are warmer and have a good sized mid bass hump closer to the neighborhood of 200-350 hz.

It suffers a bit, yes, but they still pack quite a punch and that lovely subbass is still there for sure wink.gif

post #314 of 599
I just switched to some black velours and I think they bring the bass closer to neutral; I don't find them any brighter though. I'm liking it better this way personally.

Is the sound isolation as good?
