    Upgrading from DT 770, (Death,Doom,Black) + Amp choice?

    Hello! I'm currently on my third pair of 770's, but I'm eyeing a possible upgrade, I've mostly used them un-amped (80ohms) and I like their sound, but have little reference for what a solid pair of cans can sound like for the genre I listen to. Possible cans that came to mind were the ath-msrb7b...

    Universal budget DAC\AMP combo device (under 150-200$)

    Now I have SoundBlasterX G6 and AKG K712 PRO. Most of simple genres sound good enough on this combo but metal ones like metalcore and posthardcore sound quite bad for me. The vocals are kinda on the background and mids sound messy. By now I found two DAC\Amps that I like: used Oppo HA-2(or SE)...
