Even if the Beats are heavily modded? With, let's say, T50Rp drivers? :p

the beats don't need an amp. They have special technology developed by Dr. Dre himself which allows them to be incredibly efficient.  Their sound is on par or exceeding that of many electrostats, while requiring less than a fraction of the power.  They are that good.

That special technology you mention are just little fairies sitting in the driver sprinkling glitter into your ears when you listen to them.

Has anyone else had the urge to take a portable amp to a store and try blowing up the beats drivers?

With those *things* you don't need an amp.  You just have to remember to periodically change the batteries, or your B**ts will sound like they've gotten a flat tire.  tongue.gif

Actually, didn't Dr. Dre leave the B**ts scene and Monster is marketing them without him?  He probably made enough royalties to keep himself stocked with chronic for the rest of his life, so he's all set.

I'm looking at the Aune T1 now.  Partly because I'm interested in the tube sound, and partly to see how it fares against the E17 and the M&M stack in the sub-$200 DAC/Amp arena.


If the recording/mastering is sub-par, then a revealing setup will not help.  For less than stellar recorded/mastered tracks I use the Beyer Dynamic HD770s - studio headphones that get to the heart of the music without overly revealing what's going on and spoiling the fun.

I guess his doctorate comes in handy once in while

I read an article the other day. He made $330 million dollars off the whole beats thing.

Give me 300 million dollars, I'd hype lesser headphones. ph34r.gif

On topic, going back to the HE-400s, and that bass and imaging is something I'm not ready to give up.

This song highlights both. It's rap if you ain't into that...don't watch. I'm not, but the song is sick anyways.

The K702 is clearly better at everything else (mids, treble, soundstage, tonality), but there are many times when I listen to bass heavy music, which the Annie can't stack up to.
