Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250ohm Impressions Thread - Page 4

post #46 of 188

So I wanted to leave an update on the mod.

 

First I think it lets the mids and vocals come out a little more so it sounds more lifelike.

 

Second Cymbals also sound more real than they did before. So the highs are better balanced now.

 

Third and not least I can listen to music longer without fatigue. I've listened to them for hours no problem. Which is a big plus.

 

Conclusions: I'm definately happy with the changes it made and I'm definately going to keep them like this. It added many benefits and no drawbacks. So thanks for the tip Matrixnobu. I didn't think I could get better sound than I already had. And like you said it only took 5 minutes! Ok maybe 10 for me because I had to find a real small screwdriver to remove the ring that held the foam in place.

Now I have to pick a good amp to add to my setup....

Portable? Home? I'm partial to tubes but ymmv. Lots of good options....I have used a fiio E11, Bravo V2, Indeed G3, Project sunrise II, Fournier HTA2, Crack, and the magni. It likes power but isn't fussy about it IMO

For home. What would you say is a good match? I like house music most.

Budget? I mostly use low end gear...jus something about finding a good product cheap. I like it wink.gif Plus Im a single dad so not alot of disposable income

I was thinking around $500.

  I would prob defer to someone who knows more about higher end equip. Of what I've heard first hand if you're handy with a soldering iron the bottlehead crack can't be beat but it's for high impedance cans only. Wouldn't drive anything else very good (sensitive cans). Project ember is a good choice because all the tuning options, ie it will drive sensitive(32ohm) up to 600ohm. Really worth checking out at the garage 1217 website. Other than that someone else will hopefully chime in with more expensive gear. I'm sure something from schiit would work but I like stuff on the cheap FWIW

I like Audio GD stuff IMHO.

I was looking at Audio GD, Schiit, and also those DIY bottlehead crack amps. Wish I could get all of them! But alas we are going to have to pick one. So many amps so little time.

This was the Tissue behind the driver mod you did?

post #57 of 188

It's not behind the driver. I put the 2 pieces of toilette paper the size of the driver right in front of it. So all you have to do is take of the ring that holds everything in. And just lift the foam cover off and put the paper on top of the driver without ever taking the driver out.

 

Hope this helps. Maybe I will take pictures and post them.

Thanx, surprised that made much difference.

Easy mod for sure.

FYI. I have three pieces the size of the driver now. I love the sound of these headphones. And even straight out of my laptop they sound awesome. I still can't believe they are so inexpensive.

post #60 of 188

Yeah it must depend on the difference in the drivers that some folks might need more than others. While some may need no modding at all.
