I received the dt770-80's today and I'm not really satisfied with them. From what I've read, I don't think I'll ever be even after amped/burn-in. So I'm looking for something new with input from you guys.

 

I listen to stuff across the board but right now it's predominantly electronic, soul, jazz, hip-hop, post-rock, and indierock/alternative.

 

I'll be driving them from an iphone 6 and a macbook pro (2010). might consider an amp but the simplicity of less equipment would probably be preferred.

 

What I'm looking for in a headphone is:

<$150

engaging and fun

non-fatiguing

isolating

comfortable

full sounding

 

What I liked from the dt770's:

resolution

comfort

isolation

construction

 

What I didn't like:

hollow

tinny

not very engaging

 

Headphones I'm most familiar with are:

portapros - using these now and they seem like a lesser form of the px-100s. would like them to be more clear and have more complex bass

akg k81dj - were alright, nothing too much to complain about, but at the same time kinda forgettable

ksc75 - liked the sound of these A LOT, they were engaging, I liked the brightness but they were too fatiguing with sibilance (if I remember right)

px-100 - if I remember correctly, it was the best overall because it didn't fatigue and fell only a bit short of the ksc75's sound

 

 

what you got?

much appreciated :smile:
