Question is now should i go with the e6 or e11 for an amp? Or something else?
I found the DT770/80's like i have said above to be like ultrasone's but minus s-logic with a more passive sound signature that is better for newbies and people that like that signature. I wasn't able to test the beyers enough to know if they were more accurate in sound and audio reproduction and all that fancy stuff. the highs that just fall off and start lurching and loose bass says otherwise.
with head fi..you will be upgrading in a few months :) i would say stay away but that is impossible :) only way to get a resitant cream or something against the upgradeitis bug..for a small time and to make the efects smaller (in the long run, in the short run it will make it larger) is to gain rank on this site.
I found my FiiO E17 to be fantastic with the Beyer. The beyer's are and as manyothers say are similar to the ultrasone's in sound signature and prone to bassy genre's so i would say the more bassy and universal FiiO would be better than something like a cmoy but hey. i don't know for sure. I would say that if someone has both an FiiO and a cmoy and the DT77/80 they should chime in and tell me which is better actually. But FiiO is more universal. The E11. definateley. It is arguably the most post about amp in the portable amp section of this forums(cheap price and newbs post in that part) (i don't mean any disrespect from newb, there isn't another easy to type and direct to meaning word other than that.)
I liked a bass boost with the Beyer's. so my E17 did the trick.. but again. if someone has both fiio and cmoy with DT770/80 and listens and likes the genre's that the OP does(this is also important) then chime in.
burn the DT770s in for a bit. the shrill highs(you won't hear it for most songs, it was fine until i played one of my songs with very hot vocals and highs that it was ....so noticeable and only at the upper regions. The looser bass than my HFI's was also noticeable. I didn't want to whip too much high or lows on those cans due to those problems i faced so i am not able to give you any more info)
very very comfortable though :) another user i had some posts with Hyogen also wears glasses and loves them :) i liked them too but they were too similar to my HFI's with sonic deficiencies so i couldn't have bought them.
They are very light and feel..breakable at times(but don't..since they are german quality made :) ] so be careful and don't just shove it into your backpack. the ultrasones..are a metal and hard plastic based headphone just light enough to be portable and just heavy enough to be a tank :)
I feel pretty good right now. In the bottom right corner of the screen on this post there is a thumbs up button. On Head-Fi it doesn't mean anything really but I feel like getting one right now. If you found my post helpful could I get one? :) I'm feeling good today.
