      What’s up guys. I’ve been looking at getting a new pair of cans recently and thought I’d ask around before I jump in and see if anyone had advice. I already have a pair of Sennheiser HD 650’s, but was looking at getting a closed back set of cans to add to the arsenal.

      I hear good things about the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 250 Ohm headphones, and people seem to rave about the comfortability of them as well. I was wondering if anyone knew of a pair of closed back cans in the same price rang that where better than the 770 Pros? Any other brands\pairs I should be looking into?

      You may be reassured to read this 😉

      Meet Rillium…

      If going for 250 Ohm instead of 80 Ohm, you’ll need a headphone amp – you have one?

      interesting read. he’s rocking the 990’s, kinda like the open back version of the 770’s. I don’t have a headphone amp, but I’m using an audio interface with a high powered amp. Funny thing is, Rillium mentions his audio interface during his gear breakdown, but never mentions a headphone amp with his 300ohm headphones. I used to own the exact same audio interface as he did and I had to get rid of it when I purchased my 250ohm Sennheiser HD650s because the built in headphone amp wouldn’t drive the cans properly at all. I picked up a MOTU M2 audio interface. It has an ESS driven headphone output. I don’t claim to know much about amps, but it seems to push my 300ohm cans fine and everything I’ve read online and when speaking to MOTU seems to indicate the interface has more than enough power to push high impedance headphones… although at times I still wonder if I need one and if it would make much of a difference. I definitely know my other two interfaces would have needed an amp.

      I don’t understand all the amp specs and there meanings, but from what I could find\understand on the MOTU’s headphone amp, it seems to be on par or close to some of the Schiit headphone amps (which I know a lot of people seem to use).

      Maybe I should grab one of the lower impedance versions just to be safe, although something tells me I’m gonna end up getting a amp one of these days just to quench my curiosity on the subject.
