My DT 770 Pros broke on the right so I bought some DT 1770 Pros. I'm using a Pioneer A-300R Precision with it on my desktop, I bought a FiiO K3 that I'm going to use as a DAC because I like to imagine it's better than the built in DAC in my motherboard. If it's not better I can just send it back and carry on doing what I'm doing now.

 

Update: K3 sounded the same, I'm returning it and just going to use the motherboard onboard DAC and the Pioneer A-300R Precision with the DT 1770 Pros.

I've got a Sennheiser PXC550. I take it with me to hotels and ships (lots of ambient noise), and I fall asleep with it almost every night.  Also at home, active noise cancelling and some music and I

Not sure exactly, but I'm pretty sure it would require soldering as it was intermittent for a few weeks before it finally stopped working completely. I've already got the DT1770 Pros now, I don't think it's going to be easy to go back to 770s ?

Yeah it does require soldering, but it's pretty quick and easy to solder a new cable on DT770's, if mine will break I will add an XLR jack on mine for the convenience of removable cable.

I'm a basement dweller when it comes to headphones since I rarely wear them and I've always been way more invested in speakers, but I got a great deal on the Edifier W860NB earlier this year that I'm looking forward to using when I fly again.

 

Shopping for active noise cancellation as a feature made comparisons difficult. It's a value-added feature that doesn't directly translate to SQ from the cans themselves, and people don't often compare SQ between ANC and non-ANC headphones. Despite how much I dislike them as a speaker company, I admit that I gave Bose a much longer look than expected with a used pair of QuietComfort 35 II's.

I regret buying Topping to be honest. Should have gone for Schiit. I fell victim to peer pressure and measurement graphs contrary to my nature where I listen to stuff before buy them. Everytime I plug my cans in my NAD I realize what an idiot I was.
