Good price and a very nice set of headphones. Camelcamelcamel shows the lowest it has been on Amazon is £112. I paid £130 for the 80 ohms version.

good headphones, even if I didn't quite get on with the spiky treble and hollow mids, but they are used in the recording industry a lot, like Beats right?... ahahaha!! Seriously though, great price for these! Heat from me.

Just know that they wont run off a phone well at all. I've heard people buy the 80 ohm version and say that and these will be worse.

I stuck with the 80ohms but still, great headphones!

They are heavenly.

250ohms means you need a decent AMP, get the 80ohm version if you plan on using with weak sources

250ohm, seems like lazy engineering

Pro cans are purposely designed to be driven @ 250-600Ω to reduce noise and interference.

What AMP do you suggest?

these are good to buy if you have a litle left over at the end of the week

No good as portable headphones, they need an amp, but great sound.

that is quite a specific RRP!

Love Beyerdynamic headphones. Forget about "Beats" and spend the money on some of these quality cans - and open your mind to what music should sound like

how do these compare to turtle beach with dolby headphone x technology for gaming?

Very high quality headphone - have used these in a studio situation for years - probably one of the best closed back headphones available.

HOT! Beyer make excellent quality cans and these are a cracking price.

Tempted to get a pair to complement my (semi open) 880s.

be aware it says "available to order" for the 250ohms, so don't expect them right away

LOVE these cans - I use these with my systems I also bought the open-backed DT-990's and use them with a dedicated amp, both are absolutely fantastic and punch well above their weight. Bass on the 770 is basically unbeatable - it's not forced on you like Beats but if you ask for it they will certainly deliver.

^ haha nope.

Excellent headphones, the 250ohms drive fine from something like an iPhone or Galaxy S/Note series phone, but put through a desktop amp they can handle anything you throw at them.

Sound signature wise, they are brilliant for closed headphones, decent vocals/mids (not forward, but not recessed either), and driven well, amazingly powerful/controlled bass (will need amp for that), the highs are plentiful but not shrill, really well balanced IMO, but as with coffee, headphones are very personal, but these are the pair I use in work (closed back = no noise leakage) where I listen to the most music.

Great headphones, these are my daily go-to cans.
It's 100% worth taking note of the fact that these headphones, especially at 250 ohms, really heavily benefit from some amplification.

These are also amazing for gaming thanks to the incredible soundstage you get on them.

I paid £130 about a year ago and it's money well spent, at this price you really can't go wrong.

Are these better than the Audiotechnica M50? I'm looking for an upgrade and these seem like a great choice

If you're not going to be using an amp then get the 32 Ohm version, it'll sound much better.

Otherwise, get an amp like

amazon.co.uk/dp/…LS4

and if you're using an iPhone/Touch/Pad then get the camera connection kit

amazon.co.uk/dp/…OM8

and you can use the amp with your (no longer as portable) device.

You would be better trying them, at the very least ask on a hifi forum.
I know Audiotechnica are very well regarded and make some lovely high end kit.

I agree with everything you said. Anyway charts for many headphones can be found here:
headphone.com/pag…aph
Personally I prefer the Sennheiser 'HD 558-598' series over all headphones I've heard but that's just me.
Placebo effect comes into play as well at some point.

Beats are average unless you love loud bass but I 'get' why people buy them. It's a bit like Bang and Olufsen or Bose. Good marketing, good design and a high price means people assume they're good.
Also if you've not heard full sized headphones before almost any of them will sound good compared to bundled earbuds.

I would usually agree about the branded stuff but the B&O H6 is amazing, I highly recommend giving them a try if you can. They remind me very much of a close back Senn HD600.

Having tested some Beats in an HMV, I can categorically say that I cannot understand for one second why someone would buy them. They're sub-par, muddy messy horrible sound, bass is unnatural, as for mids or highs they are non-existent. I can't even say they're comfy All Beats are good at are demonstrating how sheep-like humans can be.

Beats are like sticking your head underwater in the bath and listening to someone play music out of their iPhone in the flat below you.

Way, way overpriced.

Cold from me.

How does the fiio e11 kilimanjaro amp compare to the ehp02?

Doesnt seem to have a removable battery like the e11 from what i can see

I dont have the fiio e11 but I really like my ehpo2 amp , I also pair it to an epiphany acoustics edac at times, regarding the batteries they are just rectangular 9v types http://lh6.ggpht.com/-osbJEsb4u2M/TlK7qA3XgMI/AAAAAAAABPQ/rUy9mE5wrQ8/s1600/o2%252520v11%252520dscope%252520cables%25255B4%25255D.jpg
Edited by: "esq3585" 26th Aug 2014

Can i attach a line level 2v output to the amp and decrease the volume to a usable level?

Can see much in the reviews.

9V batteries are not great but better than a non replaceable one.

You can also run it off the AC charger if you want
