I Got my DT880/250ohm about a month ago and initially found it to trebly and weak in the bass. After burn-in I like it more and more everyday. I mainly use this to mix in the studio but also to listen to music at home more recently so I can burn them in more.
I've been looking for a DAC/AMP and After my research the O2 seemed nice. However, just did some more research of the components in my Line6 POD HD desktop that sits beside my computer at home and realized the headphone out has plenty of power to drive a power hungry 600ohm headphone. for the DT880/250 it dials in just below half way to get good loud listening level. So my next question was the DAC, I wanted to get some quality DAC and it turns out it already uses Cirrus 4272 D/A A/D the same used in Apogee duet and Apogee ensemble which is known for their A/D D/A converters. The Bass in plenty good and honest for my mixing needs. GREAT SET OF CANS!
NOW I'm looking for a headphone with a bit more punch(Impact) in the lows and have more bass and is closed cans for producing Hip-hop / Electronica for clients (I mainly do rock and blues) Also would like to use them for tracking (hence closed can).
AKG K240 Monitors (600ohm) ?? (not sure if this fits the bill tho and I know its not close cans but I can get them really cheap $60 so I'm considering)
the DT770 seems like the winner as of right now but I'm just wondering if it would me redundant to have DT880 and DT770. But if its like a DT880 with similar highs and mids with a Impactful bass and more lows then seems like its a winner. The DT880 have plenty bass that is honest but lacking that BOOM! have no Idea if I'm making any sense but hope u guys understand.
Can you guys help me out here? thanks!
