Cool. Glad you were able to try a couple few in person. If you like the 770/250 that much then I figure you'll be all the happier one day when you can try them with a more powerful amplifier. 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!
