Hi all - This is my first post even though I have been lurking for several years. My old setup is getting, well, old. I had DB500s with a fiio6 amp which was my first foray into decent sound. I know it is very junior birdman which is why I am ready to move up. I have a budget of ~$400 to work with. I will be using these cans on my Acer laptop to stream Pandora at night after my wife goes to bed. The genres I listen to are pop/rock, electronic, dance, trance. I do love bass but feel like the DB500s might be a bit too much and might be muddying the mids and highs. I don't listen to any dub or hip hop.
After several weeks of research I have tentatively chosen the DT770s and the Magni/Modi combo. Does this sound like a good choice for my purposes? I don't travel with these at all so it doesn't have to be a mobile setup.
Also - what is the best ohm amount to get with the DT770s considering I will have a good amp to drive them. Is there any difference in sound between the different ohm levels? In other words does the 80 ohm sound better with a DAC and amp than the 250 ohms? Oh, one more thing - I do occasionally listen through my tablet but not much anymore since I realized my laptop sounded way better. That might be different with the DAC and amp.
I am completely open to any suggestions for better equipment you all might have. Thanks!
