I've been using the DT770 80ohm pro with a Schiit Stack, while the lows are extremely satisfying, the recessed mid aren't the greatest but still not to bad, the thing that I just cannot get used to are the highs, feels like someone is stabbing needles in my ear.
I've been playing around with my EQ and have found a pleasing sound to me, basically like a modified A shape with the low end staying at 0, the mid way up, and the treble about 25% below zero.
I thought what I preferred was a V-shaped sound however it seems I much prefer a moderate boost to low end, slight boost to mids and flat treble. Just like a downward slant.
If I show you this sound sig: https://www.google.ca/search?q=rha+m750+frequency+response&biw=960&bih=487&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAWoVChMI8saYu_PnxwIVCXU-Ch0i6QWP#imgrc=r0GwJQZjW1xDWM%3A

That's the signature of my RHA ma750s that I use on my laptop paired with a Schiit Fulla, and honestly they are the most pleasing, to my ears, that I have ever heard right out of the box, would perhaps like a hair more low end. Is there anything around the 200-250CDN mark that is remotely close to that as full sized headphones?

Would suggest Beyer's own COP as its treble is definitely less hot.
Focal Spirit One S
ATH-M50x (it's treble spike is higher in its frequencies around 10khz, so its less spitty/lacerating imho)
but COP should be the first model to audition :) (the adjustable bass feature is rather useful as well)

Hmm, that is indeed, a very nice frequency response.
I still have 15 days to make up my mind, the supreme comfort of the DT770s with the velour pads are what's holding me back. Every pair of cans I have owned up to now, all of them without exception, become uncomfortable when wearing glasses after a couple hours. I get sore where the cans press against my glasses right around the temple area. Last night I gamed while listening to music for 6 hours straight, and not once did I feel pain where I usually do, unsure if its because the can are circular or if its the velour pads that seem to have a lot of give than the usual leather pads, but whatever it is, its great.
I noticed however some crackle on various songs in my repertoire, I got my cans and Schiit stack at the same time, so I'm unsure what's causing it, or if its just the recording.
Can anyone with the Lossless version of Tiesto - Secrets tell me if they are experiencing crackle especially apparent in the first 20 seconds of the song, before I start troubleshooting, might just be the song, though a lot of my songs seems to get the same crackle.

Thank you.

The hard to find Beyerdynamic COP Studio are voiced closer to the COP but comes with velour pads.

Also look into Aiaiai TMA-2, the studio version also offer micro suede as an option and their 01 and 03 capsules are voiced with a down tilt as well.
