DT 770 80Ω vs DT 990 250Ω

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have narrowed my results to these 2 headphones from avshop.

 

The one being the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80Ω - http://www.avshop.ca/sound-amp-pa-audio/headphones/over-ear-headphones/beyerdynamic-dt-770-pro-80-ohms-headphones

The other being the Beyerdynamic DT 990 250Ω - http://www.avshop.ca/sound-amp-pa-audio/headphones/over-ear-headphones/beyerdynamic-dt-990-pro-studio-headphones

 

Both relatively close price and I have a price match for the DT 770 to be $182 CAD.

 

I will be using these headphones in doors and not in public where so sound leakage isn't a huge deal.

 

I like to listen to DnB and EDM type music.

 

I will be hooking these headphones up to my Astro Mixamp 2013 edition and would like to know if it is able to drive the 250 ohms. 

 

Feel free to give your opinions and ask questions! Really appreciate it.

I own both.

I would get the DT990s, as I prefer the sound of open headphones (mostly).

If I were you I would take DT770 80 Ohm for that kind of music any time. Sub Bass has more presence in DT770 80Ohms wich are designed to provide powerful bass. DT 770 80Ohm highs are probably also more forgiving than DT990 Pro's. This is important because most EDM recordings with female voices are quite sibilant, and DT990 is definately not a good headphone for sibilant recordings.

Best Luck!

Can the astro mixamp drive that high of ohms? I will most likely have to wait until mid november or christmas to get an amplifier, I was thinking e7/e10/e17 depending on stock and price.

 

Because they are nearly the same price i'll go with the DT 990s and for my birthday i'll get the Fiio E10 probably. For nearly the same price many people say the DT 990s are better and DT 770s is dark and can overpower the bass.

I believe the Astro Mix-amp can drive the DT990 250-Ohm.
