I have no experience with the Beyerdynamic DT line except for the 80 Ohm series but since you are not planning to buy an amplifier it might be worth noting.
Here's one of the posts where this was mentioned. Great thread by the way if you had never read it before.
Zombie_X's take on the DT770 32 Ohm
Any thoughts of DT 770 Pro series are welcome! Plus, I'm also considering the 80 ohms version too, but still will use it without an amp - is that a bad idea? I recently tried listen to DT 770 Pro 80 ohms at Guitar Center. It is a new, non-burned/ran one, with only my cell phone, Galaxy S II, to drive it. Its great, clear sound and rich bass got me immediately! Although I have to crank the volume to the max. Thus, that experience makes me thinking maybe an 80 ohms version will suit my need too.
I also have the impression that people say 32 ohms may be harder to drive than 80 ohms. But I guess that is compared under the situation that if you put both 32/80 on an amp? I never got my feet in the amp world, so I might be very wrong :P
My main purpose for DT 770 Pro is monitoring headphone for sound design. Do you think this is a good one? The rich bass of 80 ohms makes me wonder if it's a "coloring" of bass.
Btw, the thread you mentioned is really great, thanks so much! Just I need half a day to dig into the 82-page long thread, which I only have read a few pages ;)
