Obviously that one is in the US. Maybe you can work out a deal to ship it CAD.

Normally I would say get a better amp, but the with the DT880s having a slightly smaller sound stage, a nice dac will open that sound staging up a little bit.

Going to have to look around quick tonight since I want to have everything show up around the same time. And going to order the 880s tonight.

Well pulled the trigger on the Beyerdynamic DT880s and I think I'm going with the Schiit stack for my AMP and DAC.

Thanks for the help everyone!

Are you looking for a gaming headphone? If so I have a Black AKG Q701 for sell.

That's the set that I'm probably going to end up getting looking forward to trying it out! But I don't think the Magni and Modi will arrive till next week.

Would you be OK with buying used headphones off of head-fi? There is an OCN member selling the Q701s that I originally owned for 170. Shipping to canada should be about 30-50 USD which all together would only be about 230-240 CAD. That could save you a LOT of money.

 

 

You are a little late, NCIX last weekend AKG Q 701 was on sales for $249. I got mine arrived yesterday and now still breaking them in.

Yeah, they were still on sale now but sold out! Saw on another post that sale, that's what got me looking at them in the first place. But the DT880s were recommended before by quite a few people and happy on the purchase as I said now it's just about ordering my DAC and AMP but I'm just looking if I'll need to order any other cables with them.

My Beyerdynamic DT880s 600 ohm version showed up last night - as for the Magni and Modi they're still floating around somewhere - I haven't got an update for a few days. Gave them a listen for a few hours last night and they're sounding pretty good without the amp and DAC but hoping they'll sound even better when those arrive!
