Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro - Limited Edition, 32 Ohms - Page 41

post #601 of 617
You'll probably want a bit more power than EO7K can put out to get the most out of the 250 ohms; that said, it will still sound good enough. I'd go for a JDS Labs C5 eventually, though, if it were me.

I would take any DT770 model over the M50, any day. The Beyers are much flatter and more tonally correct, more detailed, have a bigger soundstage, are vastly more comfortable...I could go on. The only reason to take the M50 would be portability and efficiency.

1. How well would the DT 770 Pro 250 OHM work well with the Fiio E07K Andes and iPod Classic 7th Generation?

2. How are the DT 770 Pro 250 OHM against the Audio Technicas M50's?

3. How long have you had these headphones and what are the pros and cons since purchase?

Which amp would you recommend that's at a reasonable price?

Would the E07K work well with the 32 OHMS?
post #605 of 617

I've never heard it, to be honest, but it should have plenty of power. I've heard some say it's bright, though, and the LE is already a bit sharp-sounding, so I'd look for input from someone who has used the combo, or buy from somewhere that has a good return policy. Don't let that deter you immediately, though; my microStreamer is infamous for being on the bright side, and I love my LEs with it. It all boils down to preference, and ultimately only your ears will tell you the truth.

I used to use the e07k with the dt770. It works well. Soundwise its actually a tad warmer than the e17.

Anybody know how these compare to Sony MDR-7520? There was nothing but praise for them on the forum, but when I bought them I was underwhelmed. Just not a fun enough sound signature I guess, and definitely not enough bass.

I tried the m50x and loved them. I returned them though because I felt I wanted more bass impact, clearer highs, more soundstage, and less leakage. I currently have the Pro700MKII on order, thinking those might satisfy my bass itch. Maybe these beyers will better though?

How lacking is the bass on the dt770le? I am considering buying a pair.....

For a guy that has a hd25, had the over ear momentums, liked the bass on the on ear momentums as well on the ath m50 and found the akg k550 to be lacking bass and steryle and the sony mdr 1r too colored and lacking bass as well..... Do you guys think the dt770le is a viable option for me?

I listen mostly to pop rock and edm, i have no amps and mostly listen to music through my 4thhen ipod touch and nexus7....

Its not as punchy and tight as the HD25; more atmospheric with less midbass and more subbass, especially around 100hz. Its definitely a bassy headphone, but not in the more common sense. If you want bass like the HD25, get the 80 ohm and a decent amp like a C5 or E12, or even an O2.

Atmoheric like..... Mdr 1r? By the way how do they compare with the over ear momentums?

I loved the sound on those but the fit\seal killed it for me.... They were the best complement i found to my hd25s so far.... :'(

No- 

That's the simple answer with the gear you intend to drive them with .  I use them that way but I am far from a bass fan.  My other headphones are Sennheiser  HD700s which I use with a SinglePower Extreme, I really love that sound, the music seems full and rich ( although I roll the tubes often enough to tweak the sound for fun), but it not not bassy or bass heavy. My music preferences don't demand a lot of bass for the most part either.

 Good luck finding what you seek, I might try them myself some day LOL!

Those two (Momentums ad MDR 1R) are both MUCH MUCH MUCH warmer than the DT770, and more similar to each other than either the HD25 or DT770 IME. They are both consumer-oriented headphones with a healthy dose of extra upper bass, which colors the sound heavily; the HD25 and DT770 are both neutral in the midrange by contrast although the DT770 is moreso; if you take the difference between the Momentums ad HD25, and magnify it while adding a much bigger soundstage, you might have an idea of what the DT770 sounds like.

 

To be honest though, if you really enjoyed the Momentums ad MDR1R, the DT770 might not be your cup of tea. It has a much drier, more neutral midrange, and a good deal more treble as well; its a brighter sound than the HD25, so if you prefer a warmer, darker sound, you might want to look at the Denon D600 for an over-ear can.

I like the momentums, th mdr 1r not very much. To be honest i did not like the mdr 1r at all while playing flat. They are just to colored, too muffled (singers sound like they are burried) and lacking bass impact. I could only enjoy the mdr 1r using the rock eq on my 4th gen ipod touch because that way they sounded a bit clearer and with better impact but still not quite enough for me. I like the momentums much more.
Are the denons d600 nice? How do they compare with the over ear momentums? There is a store selling them at 200 euros in spain...

The bass on the dt770 le is tighter, punchier and fuller than lets say.... The hd518 or the akg k550? The hd518 is my favourite hd500 because it is the bassier one and although not being close to the momentums its a sound that i can live with and also the k550 because i hated it.... Too little bass.... Toooooooooooo much treble.... Really dry, and steryle sound on the k550 to my ears....

I a! Really decided to get a dt770, if not the 32 it will be the 80ohm version, but i am still really interested in the le 32ohm because of the shorter cable and low impedance wich would make it much more easy to use anywhere and with anything...

I liked the D600 more than the Momentums. It has a clearer midrange, without the "cupped hands" sound that the MDR1R and Momentums have, but it's still warm and bassy.

 

Neither the D600 or DT770 are anything like the K550. Both are much bassier, although the DT770 has neutral-bright mids like the K550. If the K550 was too bright/had too much treble for you, you probably won't like ANY Beyerdyamic cans, including the 32 and 80 ohm DT770s. They are pretty bright and treble-y.

 

I haven't heard the 518 so I can't offer any comparison, however I will say the DT770 has a much more neutral tone than any Sennheiser I've heard other than the HD800; Sennheisers are notoriously warm and lush. The D600 is warmer like Senns.

 

If I were you I would look into those D600s; they are warm and smooth like the Momentums, but a bit more neutral/real-sounding with a bigger soundstage. I'm surprised they aren't more popular than they are; they have a big, full, smooth sound and are much more fashionable than most cans discussed here on Head-Fi. You might also want to check out the UE6000, they are also very stylish and have a really impressive sound for the price: good soundstage, balanced presentation (nothing overshadows anything else or stands out like a sore thumb), and plenty of bass. They are super versatile. The D600 scale up more with better amps and sources, and are built better, but they sound about equal (not the same; the D600 are warmer) from a portable source and the UE6000s are more portable (smaller and foldable). If you plan on using them more on the go, the UE6000 would be the safer bet, but it looks like you have portable cans you like, so I'd go with the D600, personally.
