I am very close to taking the plunge and ordering your DT 770 "Premium"(250ohm) but have been hearing mixed things regarding their replacements the T70, was wondering if you or could answer a few quick questions for me to help me with my decision.
Would you say they are an improved version of the 770 or a whole other set of cans all together?
should I wait for these or snap up the DT 770 before they are all gone (because they are EOL)?
Beyer are only discontinuing the DT770, not the 770pro - you'll still be able to get the pro, which is basically the same headphone and much cheaper.
Are there any other Cans you would say has a similar sound to the 770's and T70's for around the same price?
When will they be available?
We'll have T70 stock soon I believe, I'll have to get back to you with a firm eta.
Don't know if it helps but I'm currently running some audiotehcnica M50's, ATH-AD700 (My roommate also has the beyer DT250's and the ATH-AD900)off a Asus Essence One headphone amp, and prefer closed cans with a balanced sound leaning towards bass with a good sound-stage and use my cans mainly for music (FLAC when I can find it) and gaming.
The DT250 is a far more balanced sounding headphone than the 770. I actually consider the DT770 a step down.
The T70 is also more balanced than the 770, so again if you're after balance the T70 is going to be a better option.
