E10 works only from usb and computer - It's a USB DAC - PC/laptop is the only source for E10

i live in a small city, if there was a sale in toronto i dont know if i could find the time drive 2.5 hours there and then another 2.5 back...

 

also isnt there a mod for a the HD 555 that'll improve bass (removing tape or something?)

When I think about it, the hd555 would suck for techno.

You'd have to change  your musical taste, or look for an other headphone.

there's a mod into hd595, that still sucks for techno

All those mods can change the resonance and thus increase the bass quantity or how long the bass lingers for - it's just resonance 

 

No mod will start giving more bass extension - that's dependent upon the driver oscillations only. So you might get more mid-bass kick but still no sub-bass. The HD models are okay with pop and have good kick in them but for trance, they are slow and just lacking.

 

The HD650 and HD600 sound okay for electronica, but even then I would still pick the Denon's - no argument

Also I wasn't suggesting coming to Toronto lol... I meant to say that I'm from Canada as well so I look at the prices from a CAD perspective and not Euro's - USD and CAD usually don't make a big difference until you get into a high price range. So the prices I've seen for D2000 (around $220) were canadian dollars - you could work it out about the shipping if you see a good offer.

also can the e10 be used without being plugged into power source? i know the e7 can


I have the e6,e7,e11. I would recommend the E11 for the sennheisers. The e7 its good but a little thick.

The usual recommendations for bass heads are to get some ultrasone or some denon. Perhaps the "recent" hifiman  he-400 too.

I didn't listen to any denon  or ultrasone , but so far I think that IEMs are more rewarding for that kind of music.

Even the expensive hd800 are not so great for techno IMHO.

how are the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80ohm version for my needs?? i saw a customer review from amazon saying they were comfortable but does anyone here have personal experience with them?

 

also with 80ohms would it be necessary to purchase a headphone amp?

This seems a good choice, but you might contact Malveaux as he is a "bass head"

that tried many headphones.
