Will these work will with my iPod too? Or should I just use my Bose headphones for it?
The DT770's need an amp to run from your ipod, and more then likely an amp fro m your sound card too. They need some power, even for the pro 80 verisons to pump the bass, sorry to inform you.
As for the type of headphones you want, closed back is your best choice. Do not get open back, as they are more airy for soundstage purposes. The ATH-A700's aren't quite bassy, I own them and prefer richer bass, the bass is difined but the quanitity of it is not high. The DT770's are your best bet, but I would invest in a sound card first. Most places carry DT770s' around the 180$ range though.
Edit- chipp, damn you for typing faster
