DT880 pro question

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

So I just bought a pair of DT880 pro for $180 ($192 after tax). Do you think this is a good deal? Since this is already a lot of money would I be fine without an amp/dac? I already have the vmoda M-80s, so do you think the 880s unamped are significantly better than the M-80s? If not, I might cancel my order. Also, if there are cheap options for an amp/dac combo (<$100?) for the DT880 then i may consider getting it. Thanks.

 

PS: Pro version so 250 ohm

New DT880 Pro 250-Ohm?

Yea, $180 is a good deal.

Thanks. Any insight on the sound unamped vs the m 80?

to what source do you connect (ipod or computer)?

Yeah, depends on your source.

 

A Fiio E10 might fit very well. Not expensice, but a great DAC/Amp.

I second Fiio E 10.

So far just a laptop. I was thinking about getting a magni/modi if it would make a big difference. I also don't think I'd be upgrading anytime soon and it seems that the magni/modi should be pretty good for a while. Is the e10 good enough to not upgrade for a while?

Might be good to post questions about the DT880 in this thread.

Hopefully someone has tried using the DT880 with the E10 and can provide feedback.

I have the exact setup (E10 with 880's) and I can tell you that you need an amp. When I went to listen to the headphones, I couldn't even get them to normal listening levels with my Galaxy S3 pumped at 100%. But with the E10, I'm not pushing more than 35% on computer volume at normal listening levels (with high gain on).

 

If you have the cash, I would definitely recommend the Schiit Stack, the O2+ODAC, or the Audinst HUD-MX1(my next DAC since it also has line out) for more versatility in the future.
