At work I am running foobar, flac, odac, o2 amp.
I work in an open office with 6 other guys. No dividers. Some leakage is okay, they are cool guys, but open back are 100% out.
I have had my eyes on the dt-770s. But I just read that they are not even made any more. I was going to wait 6 months or more. But should I snag them now. I only ask because I don't really have anything else on my short list for closed back cans. I really want to get a hybrid tube amp and/or diy tubed amp and supposedly the dt-770 responds well to tube amping.
The type of music I listen to doesn't really matter. IDM and electronic is my forte but now that I'm getting into audiophile stuff I have gone back to more jazz and classical. More rock.
Should I snag the dt-770 and deal with my wife's wrath? Or wait six months like planned and hope the price doesn't go up or snag something else. I'm still researching, and I'm still scanning head-fi, but I don't really see any other closed back cans that excite me or are a clear choice. I don't want EASY to drive. I want something I can have some fun with [with (tube) amps] and that is a contrast to my m100 and x1.
Edit: read DavidMahler's review of the dt-770 and he gives it B for the price, but he doesn't give any sub 300 closed back better value marks.
