If I get the Dt770 I would likely need an amp wouldn't I? I use my apple air and iPhone 5 as my source

you wouldn't so much need an amp, however you would benefit from getting one.

Even a tiny one like a Fiio E6 would be beneficial.

80ohm version the recommended one? And that was planning on that amp because it seems small enough to help but cheap

yeah.. its actually fairly decent for the price as well (e6). E11 again if you wanna step it up.. which is a bit smaller than an iphone.

80 ohm Dt770 is the bassiest Dt770. i have it, its excellent for its price, incredibly comfortable and while a little on the bright side, i don't find them overly so.. it actually gives a fair amount of energy to music which is very needed i find.

I never knew headphones could be so intricate. I guess I have a lot to learn. And I have a feeling I'll become and audiophile in no time.

So it looks like I may order the Dt770 80ohm with an amp too. See which of the 3 I prefer and give amazon the rest back. Thankfully prime pays off

Headphones are very diverse. with lots of flavours.

its all about finding what flavours you like really.

 

I hope you are satisfied with something you buy!

maybe you will end up keeping all 3? ;)

That seems fairly alright. I just spent $500 on two text books alone. (Mechanics and Electronics) I haven't counted all my receipts but I think I am near the $2000 region this semester for books.

 

I bet your tuition is higher though ha ha.

an E6 doesn't do anything except eq changes and volume boosting imo...

Isn't that what I'd be looking for if the iPhone wasn't loud enough?

well yeah if you need volume only the E6 would be good, just that it doesn't really drive the headphone's qualities out

ended up ordering the E11 and the DT770 80ohm, M50s, and COP.  Getting them before friday and will test them all out and decide what to keep.  From reviews it appears it will be the COP or DT770

Good move. I should do the same more often, but it does happen that I get too attached to almost anything I try out.
