Looking for Full-Sized Over-Ear Cans $150-$170 for use with Sansa Clip+ and Classic Rock

As the title says I'm looking for some Full-Sized (preferably Closed) Over Ears around $150.  Quick question too.  Can i use an Amp with with Clip+ becasue I heard it was only single line out (not sure).  Does that eliminate/disallow the use of an Amp?

Used SRH840. Warm sounding but clear. You might want to mod the headband with some foam. I've seen models on the FS board from $130 up, depending on their condition.

 

I was also impressed by DT770, but it's a much less easy going sound. Comfort is very good though. Used on FS from $120 up.

 

Not ATH-M50 as it doesn't have the treble needed for guitar-based rock.

On the DT770 , what do you mean by a much less easy going sound?

I mean they have a good deal more bass and somewhat more treble. They integrate the mix pretty well though. I respect Beyer's work here and in general even if it's not what I really enjoy.

Oh okay.  I'll go test them out in a store I suppose.  I really appreciate the suggestions.  Thanks.

Sure thing. That's the best way to find out what you like. The Guitar Centers here have both.

DT770s really need to be used with a decent headphone amplifier or at least one more powerful then what comes with the Sansa.

Where as the SRH840 should be fairly easy to drive.

I was told in another post that an Amp with the Clip + wouldnt work well because of it's single line out (?).  Is that true or will and amp work with it?

For use with my Sansa Clip+, what impedance should I go for. 250, 80, or 25.  Also if I end up getting Fiio E11, would your suggestion be different? (Will the E11 work with the Clip+ by the way?)

The Clip+ can drive two headphone diaphragms, left and right cup.

Not really sure about this "single line out", not enough detail on what that person is talking about.

Most portable devices come with one headphone output, which I guess could be called a single line out.

I use to daisy chain a FiiO E6 to my Clip zip, worked fine.
