Beyerdynamic DT 770 vs Ultrasone Pro 550 vs Audio-Technica ATH M50? - Page 5

post #41 of 48
32 ohm is the weakest. It's easier to drive, but won't produce the clarity or bass response of the higher ohm versions. The resistance of the lower impedance headphone is lower and therefore easier to drive t produce sound. The higher the impedance, the stronger the resistance and therefore the more power that is necessary to shake the diaphragm and produce the quality sound. To better understand this, read this.

So basically the higher the ohm rating, the better quality the sound will be if amplified correctly.

For some reason the 80 ohm version produces more bass than the other versions. I can't tell you why.

The DT770 32 ohm sounds like the 250/600 versions more than it does the 80 ohm version. The 80 ohm version sounds different from the rest and I'm sure others will agree. It's bassier than the others. The 32 ohm version has very light impact bass. The bass is more controlled and tight, but won't have the impact that the 80 ohm version has.

The 250 ohm version is an improvement over the 32 ohm version, but isn't quite the beast that the 600 ohm version is. The clamping force on the 250ohm version also feels tighter than the others which may lead it to sound like they have a smaller soundstage. These were less comfortable than the other versions. A lot of people actually really quite hate the 250ohm version.

The 600 ohm version is the big daddy. The power hungry monster that will unleash a roar when fed. It has smoother treble that doesn't distort other frequencies. The soundstage is arguably better on this version than all the others and and the bass is fuller and better in almost ever way to the 250 ohm version.

Forgot to add that the higher up in ohmage you go, the faster the bass can thump. This is especially apparent in the 600ohm version.

Ok just got my Asus Xonar DG. My headphones/headsets cant really utilize the card yet but I can hear a substantial difference between it and my built in sound card. Loving it at the moment.

About to order the Beyer DT770s 80 ohms. Just saw a pair of Pioneer HDJ-2000s for $136 no shipping was like ":O". Not worth it? I am already going to order my beyers just wanting to know how good it is though. tongue.gif

Cheers.

Just about to order these bad boys (Beyer DT 770 Pro 80ohms) in a a bit from here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Beyerdynamic-DT-770-Pro-80-Closed-Studio-Headphones-NEW-/110770305679?pt=DJ_Gear_Lighting&hash=item19ca6cba8f#ht_2499wt_1396


Also just wondering why no-one recommended the Ultrasone HFI 580s? No good?

And do I need to 'break in' these headphones? Someone recommend just playing music in them for 24 hours or whilst I sleep? Or can I just use them out of the box and they will slowly wear into the best sound they can be?

some people believe in breaking in headphones with some white or pink noise or some other variant, from my opinion just playing the headphones with the music you listen to will do just fine to "break them in", i cant say i believe in having them playing constantly for a x amount of hours, but thats just me.

Out of the 3 you've listed, I would go with the DT770's as they are more balanced compared to the other two. However, if you really want the clarity for gaming and general use, the DT880's aren't much more. wink.gif

Though the 880s probably don't have as much bass as the others quantity-wise. Quality-wise (in terms of details and quickness), I don't see those 3 pairs coming close. I've had the M50 myself and while it was good for the money and has good impact, it just lacks the details in comparison.

Gah makes me rethink my decision of headphone, but I got to just go for the DT 770s since if I go "Oh 880s... damn maybe I'll go those" then I'll start doing that for another 10 different headphones and I will take a month to decide. :X

Plus it is 250ohms so I will need some amplifier power to get them going. I think I will stick with these headphones for a few years then maybe come back to the drawing board for a upgrade when new models arrive and I can get an amplifier + expensive arse sound card. smile.gif

Cheers for that. Guess I will just start using them out of the box with some good old dubstep. XD

Cheers, ordering my DT 770s now before I start rethinking. smile.gif

Mainly degree of damping and output impedance matching.

Subjective:

Although the Innerfidelity link discusses it with the DT880, I have little doubt it applies to the others as well.
