I listened to them a bit with my Corda HeadFive and didn't think they mated too well with that either. I was somewhat disappointed, but will do some more listening before making a final judgment. They actually sound amazing through the headphone jack of an old Technics receiver (SAGX650 from the early 90s) I have my PC hooked up through. I listen to WMA lossless using Winamp and the Kernel Streaming output plugin (gapless works better with that than the ASIO plugin on my machine) with the line outs from my soundcard. You'd be amazed at how good this sounds. I'd might be looking to sell my Headfive as it doesn't drive the 501s all that well either. Just have to wait and see. But the DT770 does need an amp.


Agree completely about the DT770 consumer edition needing an amp.
Receiver, pre-amp, integrated amplifier and/or headphone amp will do.

Definitely a good deal. They had the DT 880's for $180 and I almost pulled the trigger but I hesitated and now they have gone up to $300. Now I'm thinkin about the 770's but I keep telling myself that I should hold out for the 880's. For anybody that has had both, is the difference really that great?
