Thinking of getting DT770's - Page 3

post #21 of 38
The guy at Guitar Center had something like this. It sounded amazing on the 770 Pro80s. I am pretty sure he was playing FLAC files on it.

You're actually considering using something with a 16ft cable for portable use?

I'd rethink it, they're also incredibly ugly and bulky headphones to be strutting around in, you have to mod the ugliness out of them and that's more money spent on a lost cause.

I recommend grabbing Sennheiser HD25's instead.

I actually won't be using them portable all the time. I will only being using them portable like 10% of the time, if that. I am still needing to get a desktop amp too. But basically I should just get 2 pairs of headphones, 1 for portable and 1 for home use?


Edit: Woahhhhh, hd25's are way too much for me. Anything better for portable use around $150-$250 that has good sound quality, and is also closed?

They are strictly, and I mean strictly Studio headphones. Not built in any way for the outdoors.

If you really want them, I'd suggest saving some extra money on the side for the HD25's or if you're set on over ear cans, you can grab a pair of HD201's nowadays for ~$20.

But yeah, save for portable cans while you enjoy the powerful bass of the 770's

Agreed. Loved my DT770s till I sold them on as I needed something street ready. 770s for home/office & perhaps the Denon D1001 for portability ?

Are the HD201 good sound quality? I'm looking for good sound quality and clear deep bass.

Everything is going to feel very lightweight in bass after the DT770s. For your portable pair I would try focus on something well rounded rather then crave the bass of the 770s. If you fall into the trap of comparing the two you might end up chasing artificial bass enhanced cans like Dre Monster Beats **eugh**

I DEFINITELY do not want something like the Beats or even the Skullcrushers.
So like you said I would want something thats more well rounded. Also, most of my music will be in either 320 kbp/s mp3 or flac, will I be able to fully enjoy that with these headphones? Would it be worth it to go with the HD202, HD203, or even the HD205 since there isn't much of a price difference.

I went with the Denon D1001. Lightweight and fairly good all rounders. There really is no substitute for demo'ing for yourself though. Sound is subjective after all.

DT770s however are the best headphones I have owned. Would buy them back in a heartbeat if I had the cash.

Hmmm, So it seems that the Denon D1001 are good headphones and can be used on the go, so I'm going to use them for portable use and get the DT770 for home use.

Any recommendations on a desktop headphone amp around $200-$300? Preferably tube amp if possible? I was looking at the little dot.


Sorry for all these questions. :\\
