They scale pretty well IMO, esp the higher ohm versions. My 600 ohm 770 does anyway and I've heard that the 250 ohm and even 80, and probably 32 ohm version as well, all scale pretty well. ... Well there's two ways to look at it, they "scale well" or they "need to be amped" ;) but if you like them that much straight out of your iPhone I think that's great because you can only go up from there.

 

Have you decided where you're going to get your 770/250? I think some links were posted earlier right? There are several places to find good prices on these but I know next to nothing on which stores/sites might be more expensive for shipping to Canada. Anyway, I'm sure you'll find a good deal. Good luck. Enjoy.

I'm that much more excited because It sounds so great even without an amplifire! Couldn't imagine how lovely they would sound with a nice little amp. Actually Long & McQuade here in Oshawa, Ontario sells them for $165. Pretty ridiculously awesome right? The cheapest I have seen on amazon.ca is $225, and I'll be paying around the same thing trying to get them shipped over from Amazon.com. All I have to do is walk down the street and pick them up (I have them on layaway so nobody took the last pair while I got the money hehe). As a matter of fact, guess where I'm off to right now ;). Thanks for all the replies everybody!

Glad you found some cans you like ColinC. The Beyer 770's are pretty nice, I almost bought them before I got my a900x (they were a good bit cheaper then the a900x which almost swayed me lol)

Let us know when you get them. I'd definitely consider getting an amp/dac for the 250 ohm version, I demo'd them with and without and noticed a significant difference.

Sorry for the late reply. I haven't checked my thread for a few days. I actually went out and bought the DT770 250Ohm version at Long and McQuade Saturday! I love them. I'm currently trying to get rid of my ATH M50's for $150, and when I switch back and forth between the two, I definitely appreciate the sound of the DT770's more. I think it may be the soundstage that won me over smily_headphones1.gif. I love them. With pretty much all of the genres I throw at both these headphones, I just feel like the DT770's recreate the sound in more of a laid-back, smooth sounding fashion and I love it. It seems as though they are easier to listen to in general, and the comfort level is just amazing. I always forget they are on my head when listening for a long time, as apposed to the M50's which have a tighter fit around the ear and can be annoying at times. I'm very excited you say you noticed a significant difference listening to them without an amp/dac because to me, even without one, they outperform my M50's in every category!  I am definitely looking into purchasing an amp/dac for these cans. There's no doubt. I may give it a few weeks or a month until I burn them in a bit. Regarding this, I'm still looking for recommendations for which amp/dac to get. Any suggestions?

Hi all, 

 

Maybe you can help me out. I'm planning to order a DT770 Pro to (250Ohm). My main concern (and question) is: I've got an Onkyo SR605 home-cinema receiver. 

a) can anyone tell me if the 250Ohm is compatible with my Onkyo?

b) I like to listen to them while my speakers also output sound (front Phone jack disables the speakers). Can I connect the DT770's to the REC-OUT on the back? (I think I need an amp for the Zone2 output...)


Thanks!! The enthousiasm over here did help me in the confusing search for a good pair of cans! 
Hope you can help me out with those (important) questions.

I didn't see Grado Labs mentioned here and thought I should considering what I was searching for ->  They're also very sturdy.

 

To the OP-> Do any of these fit the bill?

I'd recommend the Yamaha Pro 400. Distantly followed by the AKG 550 and Senn Amperior. I've left a lot of comments about these on various threads if anyone wants to read more.
