Yeah I have to say for interconnects, even though they were similar in material used, due to some reason my just audio cable sounded less 'refined' as my mj2 epiphany acoustics one.
Remember one thing though - sometimes too clear brings sibilance.
At least that's what I heard when I demoed a d2k, but with silver cable vs my stock copper d7k cable on my d2ks

Why the long face?

Just did a bunch of reading, though, and I think I may stick with my DT 770/80s. I haven't really been interested in a lot of headphones with the exception of the Ultrasone PRO 900s and the V-Moda M-100s. Those V-Modas look purely ugly to me, though. Maybe it'll grow on me rolleyes.gif. The Ultrasones sound like they would have the sound signature of a bassy, closed Grado 325i.

On the other hand, I've been reading that the new DT 770 LE 32 ohm version is quite the amazing can. Shorter cable for portable use, much easier to driver, and a more spacious, less recessed mid range. I'm tempted to try them. The sound is supposedly even darker, too. What the...so close to pulling the trigger.

EDIT:

Yep I did it. No shame in it now. I can't wait to compare them biggrin.gif.

Is it safe to use Extra High Gain option on my STX to feed my DT770 Pro 80ohm?
Extra High Gain = +18DB 300ohm~600ohm

I'm aware that is over amping it but curious how it may sound. Just don't want to damage the headphones.

[edit] Nvm the bass starts clipping on high gain + 80% volume (I lowered it immediately, no harm done), will keep them on high gain with max 50% volume. I notice I tend to like EQ my DT770's for more bass (slightly), I should just buy beats right lmao? For real though I'm such a bass junkie

They don't look comfortable to me ... and lesson learned for headphones, comfort is imperative. My HFI-580s hurt after 15 minutes frown.gif

I keep falling in love with the DT 770s, so I don't think there's anything wrong with you wink.gif. '50,000,000 people can't be wrong,' right? tongue.gif. Regardless, the DT770s are very versatile; they can handle quite a few genres acceptably. The only genre I can't really dig in with them is hardcore, metal, etc. The bass can get a little out of control, and those generes are something that I can also appreciate mids for. I'm hoping all this fuss about the 32 ohm LE is true, that way I can put to rest this itch for a long while. Then again, that's what my 325is are for.
