First step into good audio gear

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hello all :) new here so i have finally whittled my needs down to some dt770 pro's as i need something that will at least attempt to prevent sound leakage  (are they fairly decent at this i have read generally that they are) im going to be buying a fiio x3, would i get a better result out of 80 ohm on this or 250 ohm, i would also consider the Limited edition but i like the cable and pads on the pro any thoughts ?

 

thanks in advanced :)

 

if ive made some hideous mistake in choice all together let me know

I have a Fiio X3, but I haven't tried it with these cans... But if I were making the choice, I'd go 80 ohms! Technically, the X3 can work with up to 300 ohms, but if you don't need to push it, then I wouldn't. I'm not sure the 250 ohms would be useful with something besides a high output impedance amp (which the X3 is not by a long shot).

Hey man just so you know, the 80 Ohm version apparently has significantly more bass than the other models (32 Ohm and 250 Ohm)

So i Just got the dt770's and they sounded ok, but i was getting hideous buzzing from the right ear cup which seemed to be fixed by blowing the ear cup but only very briefly, i got frustrated and sucked the ear cup quite hard, it made a sudden jolt (first reaction DEAR GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE)  but they now sound golden better more so than just the buzzing... what did i do, should i worry or just see how they go for a bit?

Whoa! Well, first off, congrats on finding phones you like! Something like that is probably driver related somehow... either the diaphragm was out of place, or something was resting against it, I would guess. What do you mean by 'sudden jolt'?

Thanks, i am very happy apart from the buzzing which doesn't seem completely gone :/, its hard to describe but it felt like something gave way inside the ear cup all of a sudden when sucking the earcup

Hmmm... If I were you, if you bought these new, I'd ask for a replacement pair; they're really shouldn't have that kind of issue! If that's not an option, and you're handy with a screwdriver, I'd open up the headphone and look for anything interfering with the driver.
