I'm in the market for some full sized cans, gonna treat myself for my birthday. I think I've decided on the DT770's over the M50's (as comfort is a major priority), but I'm not sure which variant to go for.
I'll be mainly using my Galaxy S3 for playback (and perhaps my rockboxed ClipZip occasionally) and have a Fiio E6 to provide some extra power. I could possibly look at a better amp if it's warranted but that would probably be a few months down the line. Whatever I end up using, it needs to be portable.
Any advice on which of these headphones is best (and why)? If I lose a connecting cable/break the amp, I have some RE0's and a pair of Bose QC2 to fall back on, so I'm not overly worried about the fact that my source(s) can't drive the 250's directly, but I suppose it would only be worth the higher impedance set if there is going to be a noticeable difference in SQ? If I'm wrong, please tell me.
Also, couple of side questions:
1. I'll want to use these in a portable setting. While I'll use them stock to start with, I'll probably look at modding them to take a replaceable cable in the future. I'm not too hot at soldering but could practice - is it a difficult job?
2. Will they fit in a Slappa hard case? It seems a low cost option for decentish protection.
Any other advice you can offer (alternatives etc) would be great. However, I don't really have the budget to go outside the cost of the DT770's. I'm in the UK, in case that affects anything. And if anyone is selling, please give me a shout!
Thanks for reading.
