Some people complain about an imbalance in the DT770s without an amp.

Take that however you please.
The DT880 Premium 600 OHM are $269 on Amazon.

I am also reading a couple of posts of people saying the Pro version is much closer to the ear.

The Pro only comes in 250 OHM but is just $223.95.

I am unsure on which OHM would be right for me. I would think 600 but I also read that there is little difference. Most people say there is a big difference in the quality of things like bass with 600.

Could you (or anyone) please give me some input on your opinion on both of these questions? Thanks

These look really good. But I'll assume that the DT880 is much better because of the price increase, right? $146.42 vs $269.

Just checked...the Ultratone PRO 550 is $152.95.
