I have been planning to buy my brother some intro audiophile headphones (since I myself got into it 2 months ago) for his birthday. The problem is I'm more of an IEM guy and he's a headphone bro. After extensive lurking here I think I've narrowed it down to a small list:
DT 770 Pro 80
As you can see, my budget is at about $200 max. I've heard good things about these and as the next logical step, I want to audition all of these before I actually go ahead with the purchase.
Can any Canadian HiFier's out here can help point me to a store (or multiple) where I can actually test these out and see what would serve him better (I have a very good idea of what kind of sound signature he likes). I live in Toronto.
Also, what do you guys think abuot my choices? I would really appreciate some input or some more suggestions. My brother likes to listen to almost everything but tends to gravitate toward Rap, J-Pop and Mainstream Rock. I also think isolation would be important because he would probably be using this to and from the university and he would be taking the subway.
Thanks a lot!
