Which headphones should I get

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi so I'm new to head-fi and fairly new to the headphone market but I've read a couple threads here and watched some videos and I've seen that beyerdynamic dt 770 are very bassy headphones and I was wondering if a fiio e6 could power the 80 ohms or the 250 ohm version. If you know of any other headphone please let me know but I am only willing to spend $250 CAD. I am looking for bass headphones and I am listening to rap/r&b/hip hop. Thanks

Even with the E6 the 80ohm is probably a safer option.

It also means that if you forget to charge the E6 your player stands a better chance of managing.

The E6 powers both just fine. Just get any as they are both sensitive.

What do you mean by sensative? @kraken2109

I've never heard the DT770's.  I currently own the Custom One Pros and run them with or without my Fiio E17.  You might consider these as well.

D2000, spend the little extra. They are super efficient and sound fantastic right out of my ipod touch 4g. There's a reason they're so well regarded here on Head-fi.

 

Take it from me, I've tried many many headphones (check my profile) and the D2000 is a solid sounding headphone. I wish they were a little darker, a little less treble presence, but other than that, they're fantastic.

Sensitivity refers to how loud the headphones go for a specific source volume. It's a way of comparing volume differences between headphones. If you're using a portable source with limited output it's fairly important.

Don't do this unless you can find them used or new from somewhere legitimate and at a good price. They are overpriced many places now. 

 

That being said I have found both a dt770 and d2000 being sold on the forums here for decent prices.

Personally I would go for a d2000 anyday over the dt770, though I love both. Make sure you read conditions / shipping agreements, and remember as long as you are not trying to lowball, prices can be negotiated. 

 

cheers

For the price of the D2000 now you can get the Mrspeakers Mad Dog 3.2 which trump the D2000.

Yea, but do the mad dogs sound great un-amped? That's the special thing about the D2000 for me, I love them un-amped. You save money in the end because you don't need to buy an amp for them to get great sound. It's amazing, other headphones REALLY benefit from an amp, but the D2000 is great by itself.

Purely un-amped the Mad Dog sound quite pathetic to be be honest. Amped with a Fiio E11 they sound incredible and the cost of both is still way under the D2000. The D600 is also a lot cheaper now and they do not require an amp.
