    Headphones sensitivity, impedance, required V/I/P, amplifier gain

    The following table is based on measurements, not manufacturer specs.   Target SPL is 110 dB SPL. The source is assumed to output 2 V. The amp is assumed to be a voltage source (0 ohm output impedance). Voltage, current, power are RMS figures.   What do the columns mean? S@1V is the...

    Beyer 770s Headphone AMP....

    Any recommendations for a portable headphone amp and/or a desktop amp in the $100-$200 price range? Obviously, if it's slightly over $200 that's fine too.    I have the 80ohm version of the 770s and seems like I have to just about max out the volume on both my computer and iphone to get the...

    Recommend me some high impedance head phones

    Hello,    I recently finished building my M3 amp which was configured for use with my BD DT770 600 ohms head phones. After listening to them for a little while I am not entirely sure they are what I am looking for. I also tried the BD DT880 600 ohms, and even if they sounded great for...

    Before and after pics - CURSE YOU HEAD FI!

    Before - post count around 100, a modest rig for home and portable: Since then, my MS-1 is now a MS-2, the Cmoy has been given to be friend to be confiscated by the government (Thanks, JFK security) and the Ipod is the only thing left. A few months later... Post count - 1500. Portable...

    What are your "old favorite" headphones?

    So I'm interested in hearing from other folks re) that set of headphones that occupies a special place in your equipment inventory. You know...the cans that you just can't bring yourself to sell (or for that matter pitch!!) because it would be like putting your dog to sleep. For me, it's the...

    Can Astro Mixamp (2013) power Beyerdynamic DT770 600 Ohms?

    Can Astro Mixamp (2013) power Beyerdynamic DT770 600 Ohms? I am debating whether or not to add an amp (little dot mkiii) to the equation, but since this is for gaming I do not need the absolute best sound. But, at the same-time, I don't want the mixamp to limit the headphones. So at the end of...

    Audio-Technica ATH-PRO700 MK2 VS. Beyer Dynamic DT 770 PRO-80: Sub 200 Bass king

    We've seen a lot of posts about how the dt 770/80's perform, but almost nothing about the MK2 and no one has ever compared them, the goal is to feel a real upgrade from the XB500's in soundstage, overall quality, while maintaining some TRUE basshead bass :)

    Which Beyerdynamic DT-770?

    I am after a closed can with sound signature as close to HD650 or Fidelio X1 as possible, under $300.   After months of looking the only thing I can come up with is Beyerdynamic, which is quite bright, I think I can stand it as I have owned the DT-990 250Ohm before and after burn in (not sure...

    Freak accident involving BD DT-770 and a vacuum cleaner o.O

    So as it happens, I'm pretty dumb. Washed my earpads. Taped away the crud from the driver covers. Thought it a grand idea to very carefully vacuum them off. Went around the sides on lowest setting. Was thinking: "Don't go over the middle where the driver is!" Went over the middle and heard a...

    DT770 Premium 600ohm Vs. T70?

    I just got a "like-mint" pair of DT770 Premium 600 ohm headphones in the mail today. I am loving everything I'm hearing so far, they're pretty balanced as far as I can tell which was not my experience when I owned the DT770 Pro 80 ohm. I'm just curious of how big the difference is between these...

    Desktop setup: Want more flexibility, Best bet?

    All, I'm in need of advice.  Having recently picked up a Sen hd650; my previous desktop setup of e09k+e17 just didn't cut it anymore. I was using an O2+Odac combo at work, and it soundly clobbers my FiiO stack unto it's now sitting at work.  The problem is the O2+Odac I have has no other...

    Do I Need An Amp?

    So i purchased a pair of 80ohms Beyer DT770 Pros. I will be using them primarily on my iPhone (iPhone5) and my computer (2007 Gateway with no updated soundcard or anything). I should note though I plug them into my Logitech speakers i bought seperately rather than the computer directly, if that...

    Why I chose Shure SHR840, and not AKG 271, Beyer 770, 990, 250; ATH-M50...

    First of all, I’m not well versed in the headphone sound terminology and I haven’t made this kind of written review/run through before, so bare with me. I use my headphones a lot, therefore a decent pair of headphones is a must. I listen to all music genres, and I want to be able to pick up all...

    Beyer DT660 2007 Edition with Pleather Pads

    Hi there,   I put some Equation RP-21 earpads on my Beyer DT660. Warmed them up significantly and they finally have the lowend impact i always wanted them to have. Down to 20hz there is a good amount of energy with these pleathers. The phones now sound much more balanced and almost relaxed...

    Headset with alot of bass

    I really feel confused on getting a new headset. I've tried the Sennheiser 598 and Sennheiser 580, both i feel lack ALOT in the bass department. That said, it can be just me who is used to "gamer headsets" so keep that in mind. I read a review saying the Sennheiser 580's are bass heavy which i...
