Just upgraded from the CB1 to the Dt770 80ohm recently and i feel that I’m not getting the full juice just with the onboard audio from my lappie (they do get loud tho), and definitely not with my phone, sounds weak af (muuch better on the laptop tho).
Is the Xduoo xd-05 basic a good pair? And also to future proof, just is case i decide to slap my broken wallet a lil more… Would the Dt 880 600ohm be comfortable with that dac/amp? Just curious…
And regarding the upgrade, i can tell the improvements in sound quality, they are definitely less “fun”, and have less soundstage, and in some tracks where the vocals aren’t the main thing, they do feel a bit pushed to the back, but every detail and low end definitely feels more professional. They don’t fit as nicely with film soundtracks tho, probably due to their closed up nature.
I listen to mostly drum&bass and some edm btw.
