I have been debating my next headphone purchase. It is either these, DT880 250-Pro, or AKG Q701. These are the cheapest of the 3 but all at or below $200.

I would recommend an amp for anyone getting these. Whichever ones I get I will be powering them off of a Schiit Magni.

Anyone with thoughts on these cans compared to others?

As far as open cans, I have the dt990pro250 and the hifiman he400. Love them both equally. I owned the dt770 in the past and also test drove the dt880 at my local guitar center. I really liked the 880's but the sound of the 990's appealed to me more. Its got more of a U shaped EQ. I use a Centrance Hifi-M8 to power them.

I really recommend going down to guitar center and trying them out. They usually stock both the 880 and 990.

I am not an expert by any means, check this forum and specifically some opinions here [head-fi.org].

I have both the 990 pros and the Sennheiser HD 598s. Both are great headphones. In terms of sound however, if you prefer bass, the 990 pros deliver much more of it.

These require a headphone amp or else you're wasting your money!

I would also add the Sony MDR-MA900 to the mix, as they've been said to sound better than the HD598.

Not sure how this is a Slickdeal. It's been under $150 at Amazon for at least over a month now.

It's been around $150 for about a month. I have two in the last month from amazon. Last one was at $149, a dollar cheaper than around BF. So this is a good deal for $2 less Big Grin

This are good headphones, clear, decent bass and good range overall. You will need an amp for them as I'm waiting for a deal on one myself.

If you're just sitting and listening you might want to give this one a look. You could get a silver one if the color matters. There are video reviews if you want to evaluate beyond Amazon.
