Yup, the DT880s are mighty nice cans... esp the 600ohm variant, tho that needs a desktop amp. Great sound and outclass many more expensive phones.
W1000x is also gorgeous, but I recall while the mid is quite forward it's trebles also sparkles and may like a less bright source. But it's been a while since I heard it so I might be off....
No you are right, but I've modded the crud out of mine so It's like the Dt 880 but more intiamite slighty laid back but still gorgeous woody mids and sparkly treble. I find it's really magical out of a good solid state,
and yea that is correct, I have the 600 ohm verison. I am going to be amping then Balanced with a iBasso PB1... so trust me xD I've got the power issue COVERD lol [and thankfully my Dt 880 600 ohms are fully balanced] got my iBasso pb1 and the converter connector as well!
