Are DT660 portable?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi

 

I am standing between Beyer DT660, DT770 Pro (80 Ohm or 32 Ohm) and ATH-M50 for portable use without amp. I listen mainly to classical music, less so to jazz and acoustic, rock, occasionaly to some electronic music. I need a headphone that seals good and is portable in the way that I can have it in my bag. It is important that it could be driven from an mobile device (an Android phone or iPod)

 

I have not heard any of these and would like to hear your opinions. From what I have read DT770 Pro is bass and treble heavy and mid shy. DT660 has great mids but is somewhat recessed in the bass range. ATH is more balanced than the Beyers but has lesser soundstage.

 

What is your opinion? Thanks!

80ohm definitely not portable.

Thanks. I expect the size is similar to DT880 and DT990 Pro. Do you have any experience with DT660? I have read somewhere that they are a bit flimsy.

Any ideas?

DT660s are certainly portable. I think they are well built and can be driven without an amp. Though, with that said, I think that they do benefit from an amp. I have a fiio E17 and that does make a difference.

Thank you. I ordered a pair a couple of days ago and I will give them a try this evening.
