Got DT770 250ohm for $100, need a soundcard. - Page 4

i see, thanks for the posts guys because they are very reassuring. So far it seems like more people on this site have the torx screws instead of the phillips ones which are on the box which is very strange indeed.

Got a sound blaster Z and played BF3 with the Surround Option ticked and it was incredible! Absolutely decimated my HS1s and i could tell where footsteps were coming from alot more accurately.

Its the wiser choice anyways, you get some portable/decent audio gear rather than a card with crappy drivers that you never get to see... IMO

I have a FiiO E9 running my DT 880 250ohm and its awesome. I sure you can get a better amp but for the price the FiiO E9 is a good choice

I kind of want to pull the trigger on that eBay deal but risk losing $108 since the seller doesn't accept any returns =/

I went ahead and bought the dt770 off ebay for $155. Not sure if fake or not. Has torx screws too. I've now noticed after a year that my pioneer receiver is a POS and has been giving my right earcup more volume than the left. I thought it was just my other headphones before. I'm now using them on my regular onboard headphone output and the levels are better. SQ is a bit more hollow sounding now though. Not sure what to do at this point. New receiver (i like the volume knob) or a soundcard (my keyboard is a first gen das keyboard with no media keys which i will hate) The receiver now drives them fine, just uneven balance. The Creative Z soundcard I used a while back seemed to only give me a higher volume with a lower level on the volume bar in windows. SQ didn't change at all. So I think an amp just drives them with a lot more power with less need of the "gain" compared to my avr. idk what to do at this point quite frankly. I think I'm going to go with a Denon receiver, as I have some nice bookshelf speakers I just made the other day too. :\

Z improved SQ for me quite significantly, just need some leather ear pads to for more Bass.

My DT770 250 also has the torx screws. These aren't fakes. I found info on the seller's website explaining why they are so cheap: http://drivingstrategicsales.com/audiovideo/beyerdynamic-inventory-available-at-wholesale-distributor-cost/

The bass will be weak if they are unamped, even if the overall volume still gets loud.

It's a great deal, enjoy the headphones!

I feel like cancelling my Amazon order for $170 after reading that.. but lack of warranty (I assume there's no warranty unless you buy a squaretrade warranty?) sways me =x

edit: purchased.
