Am interested in these headphones..

Are there any strong features that Grado easily beats the 770 pros in?

I am really struck between the two, but I think I will go ahead and get the 770 pros because they appear to be much more comfortable and I myself am hearing about great performance with my music tastes (Pink Floyd - Echos, anyone?)

The 770 Pro 80s do indeed have a very good bass response. Prior to the 770s i had been quite firmly in the earbud camp. I still really like earbuds, but the 770s do have a better bass. However to my ears (which tend to be treble sensitive), they do seem to have recessed mids and lower treble frequencies. However, because the mids are somewhat in the background the treble frequenices seem to stand out more so than they would on a more balanced headphone.

I do think that although they're only 80 OHM that they still benefit from better ampage. They sound better coming from my shelf stereo system then from my Sony Discman (even with all of the bass boost enhancement).

I'm wondering if there is indeed a noticable improvement if used in conjunction with an amp, and if the lack of mids and highs can be compensated for by using an EQ.

i found the best compensation was a recabling job at Headphile. that, plus an amp, makes the DT770 the Darth Beyer. there's nowhere to hide once you give these cans free reign. yes it's frustrating knowing your can can improve beyond what your rig can give, but if you stay within budget the DT770 should keep pace with it and give enough satisfaction, amp or no, recable or no.

I get the impression that the AT A900 would be a better option than the DT770/80. I get the impression that the A900 is a more balanced, well rounded headphone with a similar sound, maybe a lttle bit less bass, but more balanced. I wouldn't know know, just speculating from what I read.

There is a vent that looks like an air vent but its a sound vent. under the sound vent is a thin clear plastic diaphram that only lowers the sound a little its closed but under this vent the plastic is a little more thin then the case of the can.

So my mod was to actualy open the can and let the driver breath similar to the grados. It seem to loosen the driver and lets it really thump. The eggos IMO have really good mids so the boost in the bass just make them alot better for what i like. I think they are VERY comfortable cans. To me they are more comfortable then the D770s and half as big and heavy.

BUMP I'm very interested to hear people's opinion on this now. Tyll at innerfidelity has recommended the v-moda crossfade LP2's for serious bass heads and I'm ordering them soon in no small part due to that. What do you guys think?

I wasn't THAT satisfied with the LP2's sound but they do pack a huge amount of bass for sure (about the strongest that's available in headphones) but it's not the very best quality. I lowered the mid/upper bass slightly on the EQ and raised the bass lvl on this digiZoid ZO by 1-2 levels and it started sounding better but yea it needed too much EQ tampering to get to a good bassy but well balanced mid & highrange for my liking:

Yes lol I do xD was wondering what people's favorite bass head headphones (technical term?) were now seven years later =). I don't know, I suppose worst comes to worst i can just send them back with v-moda's 60 day trail period. Which is your favorite then? 

 

Keep in mind I think the customizable shield thing is amazingly cool! I'll emblazon a big'ol tri-force on my ears if I decide I like them :D
