FS/FT: DT 770 pro 80 - trade for open gaming cans (+/- cash), or sale

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Hi there, I have a (well used) pair of DT770 pro headphones, 80ohms.

 

I only used them for gaming but due to circumstances I now need some open-backed cans. The isolation on these is so terrific I literally can't hear the door! Also please note that all parts of these can be replaced as required. The sound quality is as amazing as everyone claims - the huge bass for unparalelled immersion, top notch in games etc etc i'm sure you know all about them :)

 

Sale preferred, but I'm willing to trade for some detailed/clear headphones that have just as good positioning, and are open backed or at least semi-open. If they are a higher model, I'm willing to pay the difference, and the reverse also applies. New or used, but must be in good condition and preferably not too old.

 

Im currently looking for something along the lines of Sennheiser HD555, 595, 558, 598 etc, AKG K701 or similar, maybe a DT880/990 model. PC360 as well.

 

Pics now up! Be sure to study them carefully :) but do bear in mind that although they look old, the sound quality and comfort with those velour pads is as good as it was new.

 

see my 100% positive eBay feedback here:

As for sale, the £79 asking price includes delivery to the UK, for international just send me a PM, im all for cheap shipping. I think thats a reasonable price given that new costs £127 and above at the very cheapest I could find, and that didn't even included delivery.

 

Anything you want to discuss just send a PM.

 

Update: I washed the velour pads and they look nice n' whiter now. Also opened them and cleaned all hairs off the drivers. Good as new!

Just curious because I use very similar headphones for gaming (MMX 300 headset)

 

If you think the bass is too much, why don't you turn it down? Don't think you'll get better sound from any gaming headset so this would seem like the logical solution to me? :|

Thanks for the suggestion. I have actually been doing that (or had a noobish attemp at it :)) but that doesn't solve the fact that they are closed, and also im having doubts that my Forte can drive them properly. On top of that I just want a change. but seriously do you think something like a HD595 would be a significant downgrade?

edit: okay ive changed the details

Well I'm wary of clogging up your thread with chitchat (haven't read all the rules to see if this is allowed :P but since you seem interested I shall carry on! )

 

I've recently been given an old pair of DT 990s and these are around 15-20 years old but still sound pretty awesome. There's an obvious difference to how they feel/sound because they're lighter but also open backed etc. The old 990s are apparently less bassy than the newer ones but they still seem equally (if not more) bassy than my closed back MMX 300s.

 

My Titanium HD soundcard has a builtin headphone amp so it has never had any trouble powering my 32Ohm MMX 300. Since then I've also purchased myself a Beyer A1 headphone amp so that now drives my headphones (planning on getting T1 headphones)

 

I can't really vouch for how the other headphones sound since I've never listened to them. As far as changing from DT770s, you might prefer the sound of an open can headphone but quality wise I'm not sure you'll see much more from an alternative headphone. Finding some good settings for your soundcard might be a better improvement or perhaps a more game orientated soundcard? With the Creative drivers and software it is pretty easy to get rid of bass if required, is it difficult with the Auzentech software?

LOL yeah i read just today that these forums are only for sales n whatnot but heck hopefully no one notices!

anyway I get what you mean, but the main factor with me is actually the fact that they are closed, not the actual sound quality! I really need to hear the door and just cant do that when gaming with dt770s as the isolation is so good.

and the Auzentech drivers are basically an exact copy of the Creative ones, I could definitely sort the sound out now that i come to think of it.

Personally i would prefer some 880 or 990s, as your right the sound is definitely at the top with gaming on Beyers.

thanks for your input :)
