M50 or DT770 Pro 250 ohm?
Iam using a Fiio x3. Also, is it able to drive the DT770s well?
It wont be able to drive the 250 OHM DT770, maybe the 80 OHM version, which has better bass anyways. It might not be as loud as the M50 though. The M50 has a good amount of bass, but the clarity isn't as good as the DT770.
Also, the DT770 are so much more comfortable than the M50. The velours are excellent.
I just got my M50's couple of days ago. It's actually more comfortable than I thought it was very soft pads but a snug fit for my medium-large ears.
It's very good with certain genre's most dubstep/electronic and 80's 90's music, but I keep running into certain songs that don't sound as good as I've heard them before and that's probably due to exaggerated bass and treble of the m50's drowning certain details or making things seem "thin".
I'm not saying they're bad headphones they have probably the best bass I've heard of any headphones and they really work with dubstep but they're not a jack of all trades headphone.
Anyway most people here recommend the DT770 as an upgrade to the M50's so I'd go with that one.
