After owning a pair of Sennheiser HD280 Pro and Audio Technica A700, both of which are long gone, I have decided to buy a new set of headphones. I appreciate closed-back for isolation, and listen to rock, some rap, movies, and video games. The HD280 Pros were pretty neutral, and lacked the clarity I wanted. The A700's gave me the clarity, but the bass was gone and the mids seemed a bit too distant. I'm looking for clarity without missing the mids, and enough "low rumble" bass to satisfy with movies and occasional rap. The DT770 (32ohm) looks appealing, and those ear pads look like a dream to wear. I'd be using my iPhone for music and the rest is done through a home theater receiver. For the sake of not wanting to deal with a separate headphone amp, I'd like to stick with low-resistance cans.
I've read that the DT770 can have issues with rattling/distortion, but maybe that was fixed with newer manufacturing?
Also, what's with the A700x?
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
I first posted this from the mobile version of this site, and didn't see the info regarding where this thread should be. Sorry about that, guys!
