the sub bass is just awful, its like "prrrprr".. I don't if its supposed to be like that but my last pair was AKG k518 which had better sounding sub bass than these.
might be defective? or do I need to burn it in for a bit?
I'm using Fiio E11 and galaxy s3
The sub bass just sounds so cheap.. maybe fake? although I googled it and didn't find people complaining about fake beyers
edit: I doubt they are fake cus the.highs and mids are probably the best I've ever heard.. so do u guys think?
Poor bass quality can happen if the DT770 Pro 80-Ohm are not being given enough juice.
Inside the E11 under the battery, there is a voltage switch, set it for Hi voltage.
Also on the outside of the E11 is a gain setting, set it to Hi also.
The 32-Ohm AKG K518 would have worked fine with both the voltage and gain set to low.
When using the E11 with the Galaxy S3, it might work better if you up the volume, as high as possible, on the Galaxy S3 and use the E11 volume knob to control volume.
