I actually sold my DT770's, just had too many cans. What ohm and version are they? It makes a pretty big differnce. Mine were 250 ohm. They also make an older 250 ohm version and a 80 ohm version.

Great deal on the 770's, let me know what you think. I have my own impressions but I'd like to hear yours first

BTW, if anyone is waiting for my full review (I also have a thread on head-fi) I am waiting for my tube amp. I ordered it 3 weeks ago and it "apparently" should be done in a week and ready to ship. I hate waiting so long, but oh well.

250 ohms with only 1 week of use. I put in the lone bid at the lowest price and won. I was trying to find a local guy on CL that was selling some AKG701's but he never responded.

Nice find, I never did get a chance to try any Beyerdynamics. I'd be interested in your thoughts also.

If you don't have a headphone amp, they may not sound very good, just a warning, since they are 250 ohm. Out of a receiver you should be fine, though.

Dan, I have two regular headphone amps. A Creek OBH 11 with an upgraded power supply and a Soha with upgraded buffers. Then a couple of portables. I know about the higher ohm and the need for a dedicated amp.

I'm considering the Denon AHD2000's. They appear to be highly regarded. Have you heard them Dan (or anyone)?

Cool, my friend just built a SOHA II. He's dealing with some distortion issues right now, but so far he likes it. We'll see what oldschool ends up plugging the 770's into.

Yes, I've heard they are very nice closed cans. I almost bought them to try them out. I still might in the near future because of a headphone website project I'm working on. Plenty of opinions over at head fi...go ahead and get lost in them :-)

You mean it won't sound good on my USB 128MB Muvo MP3 player? HA.

I've got my Pio 45TX and Rotel 1050 (?) stereo pre-amp to test them out. My Ah! Njoeb 4000 tube CD player has a headphone output that I've never tried. Maybe I'll test it w/ my Superfi 5 EB's for comparison, though that's probably not fair.

I don't have a dedicated headphone amp, but I am considering the Hawthorne adapter for my Sophia Baby, considering that I got the cans for cheap.

Yeah, my Superfi's have a bit too much bass, as expected. Not as open and warm as the Von Schwiekert VR1's on the same system. We'll see how the DT770's do.

OS, if you have the Rotel RC1070 it has a very good headphone section. If I didn't already have the other amps I could see myself using the Rotel and being quite satisfied.
