Differences in sound signature for DT770 PRO in 80 - 250 ohms

  1. celibate
    I wanted to know the differences in sound signatures between the DT770 PRO in the 80 ohm and 250 ohm versions
    I've already heard that differences between them is that the 80 ohm is more bass heavy while 250 ohm is better at higher ranges; I came here to confirm what the differences are, and also it'd be helpful if anyone could tell me if something like a Cayin C5 amp is adequate enough to drive the 250 ohm version of the DT770 PRO.

    Tyll wrote an article on this using the DT880 as the example and his position was that we should always choose the higher impedance headphone when at all possible. If you want to read it it is called 'A Comparison of the DT880 32 ohm, DT880 250 ohm, and DT880 600 ohm Headphones.' It is quite an interesting read, Obviously, the DT770 is not the DT880, but Tyll argues that the principle is the same. You may find that you disagree. FWIW. YMMV, of course. Just a thought.

    I own both DT770 Pro 80-Ohm and DT770 Pro 250-Ohm, the 80-Ohm is slightly more bassy and I do prefer the 250-Ohm version.
