I bought some DT770s...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I ordered some Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 Ohm headphones after using the Turtle Beach X11s and I am quite impressed with their performance, the bass is much better and the soundstage is incredible. I am driving them with the headphone jack on my Logitech Z623 computer speakers which isn't very good but I will be getting a Fiio E10 within the next few weeks (will I see a massive change in sound quality?)

 

When I put them on I think that the right side of the headphones may be a tiny bit louder than the left but it's hardly noticeable at all, will burning them in help this? It may just be the way the songs that I'm currently listening to are composed however for a few of my songs it is bassier on the right side.

 

Here's a few images: (Head-Fi won't let me insert the images).

There I inserted one of your pics for ya.....

Anyway that is not normal and no it will not change with burn in. You should plug them into a more reliable source and if they are still that off balance, then you should get an exchange for a new pair .

Yes the E10 amp will more than likely sound significantly better.

Thanks for that!

 

I realised that wasn't the headphones fault at all, I had looked at my pc settings and the audio had been panned to the right slightly which was the issue.

 

All is well! But I am now burning them in (even if people claim it does nothing) will it effect the sound at all?

 

Great, E10 it is, it'll be about a month or so before i buy it though because of money issues.

 

Thanks, I'm also thinking if the E10 runs off of USB power, in theory would it be possible to make it "portable" by using a small MicroUSB to MicroUSBv2 cable (for power) and connecting it to an Android phone and using the Android phone as the source?

Oh geez, if I'm going to die I think I'll stick with my I/O ports. But on a serious note; thanks. I'll likely buy it in a few weeks when (when I can afford it beyersmile.png )

I just got the DT770 PRO 80s this week, and i thought they were good. My E11 got delivered today, and now i think the DT770s are amazing!! The E11 was better for me because i mainly listen to music through my phone.. 

Hope you get your amp soon :)

You should continue with your idea of getting that E10. Get the E11 also but get the E10 first if you are using with your PC. The E11 will be for use with your ipod/iphone, etc.

Underamping the DT770 you loose mostly in the lower end and the result is a thin sound and slower less tight bass. If you want more bass yes both the E10 and E11 have a bass boost switch which will increase the quantity and the DT770 is one set of cans that responds well to these settings. No sloppy or bloated bass. Just more of it.

well considering im using my iphone, without the amp they were very soft, bass was a bit muddy. but with the E11 they are like a totally different set of cans. Now turning the volume past 60% would be too loud!! The clarity is so much better, im hearing notes in songs that i didnt know were there and the bass is fantastic!! Im no basshead, so ive just been putting the EQ on option one. Which is a slight bass boost. but ive tested it on setting 2 and Doc-holiday is 100% spot on, theres much more bass, but its still clear and doesnt distort any of the other sound.

i have the 250 ohm verion and my cmoy makes them sing. my e11 does the same. although i must say, im using them straight from my computer right now (my cmoy is on loan and my e11 ran out of juice >_<) and they still sound pretty great. the bass may be a little more messy but i dont think its THAT pronounced... as i was saying in some other post, im waiting for my spl meter to arrive so i can volume match and start testing these things properly.

Yes the DT770 are great at dealing with extra bass. The other day i had my bass and treble unknowingly set to max on my Onkyo TX-8555 stereo reciever and the DT770 sounded fantastic with no distortion. When i realised what happend i was like dang these are some detailed full sounding headphones. Once i set everything back to my usual middle of the dial settings they kept on sounding great. Excellent headphones for gaming, music and movies.
