    Upgrade Help Needed

    Hi everyone,   I have been a member for a long time, but never posted before (the community is so helpful that I always found everything without having to ask questions). I chose my first decent pair of headphones after spending months researching here. I ended up getting the Audio-Technica...

    Need a comparison between the DT880 32ohm and HD598

    Have been narrowing down my next set of cans into the two above. While I know the DT880 are more usually compared to the HD600, just wondering if someone who has tried both cans before can provide a quick summary. My priorities are: - Easy to drive as I may choose to use them with an iPhone...

    adding resistor adpator = higher impedance?

    Say if I added a resistor adpator to a pair of DT880 32O ohm to make it 80ohms, would it sound identical to the 80ohm version which has the impedance in the drivers?    I'm really confused?   If this is true, then why doesn't everybody just buy the lower impedance version headphone so they...

    Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO (250 ohm) + DT 770 (80 Ohm)

    Hi,   I'm a student and I'll be studying full time with room mates, so I can't use these headphones. I bought the dt770 a couple months ago because I wanted a close headphone to use, but I never used them because I'm always never alone. Plus, I'm in desperate need of cash. :( Oh well, they...

    Will my Xonar DGX be able to drive 250ohm headphones?

    Hey guys, I currently have an Asus Xonar DGX sound card on my desktop PC. I'm thinking of getting the Beyerdynamic DT880s, but I've heard that the 250ohm version sounds much better than the 32 ohm version when amped. Will my sound card be able to handle the 250ohm version or should I just go for...

    Wanting to upgrade from Bose IE2. Suggestions?

    OK so my current portable rig is in my signature. 5.5G iMod. 128GB SD card in a Couple adapter. Fiio E17 amp, and I use it to drive Beyerdynamic DT880 250Ohm cans. I love this setup. I also use it more on the go with my Bose IE2 ear buds. I hate spending so much time with my DT880s, and moving...

    Tube amp questions

    Hello all, for the past few months I've been interested in diving into the world of tube amps. For Christmas I'm asking for a LittleDot MKII tube amp. I plan on using it with my 50ohm Sennheiser HD595s. From my research I understand that normally tube amps are used with higher impedance...

    Beyerdynamic dt880 32 ohm sale

    Amp recommendation for DT 880 250Ohm

    So I need some recommendations for a DT 880 Pro 250ohm. I'm thinking about getting the Magni and a Xonar DGX to drive the headphones I'm getting. Would this work? What would be the most cost effective solution to drive my headphones?

    The headphone that's built like a Denon HP-500 and sounds like a Beyer DT880?

    I'm still deeply unhappy with my Denon HP-500. Six months later, it still sounds like the audio equivalent of a cold draught. Worse, all my music sounds as if it had been recorded in a totally dry room with all microphones stuffed deep into the individual instruments. It's been gathering dust...

    If I get Schiit Asgard 2 and Uber Bifrost for my HD600/Beyer DT 880 250 ohm would I ever need to upgrade dac/amp?

    Right now I have the fiio E17+E9 and thinking about upgrading to Schiit Asgard 2 and Uber Bifrost for my HD600 and Beyer DT 880 250 ohm headphones.  Is the jump from E17+E9 to Schiit Asgard 2 and Uber Bifrost huge and very noticeable in sound quality?  Would I need to upgrade again?  Is it worth...
