AKG553 Pro or DT770 Pro 250 ohm?
« on: January 30, 2019, 06:04:10 PM »
Hi guys, I have a set of AKG553 Pro's and DT770 Pro 250 ohm's. I want the Fidelio X2 (if you're selling, hit me up please). Which set would you keep, the AKG553 Pro or the DT770 Pro?

I know the 553 and 770's are closed-back and that the X2 is open-back. I prefer the wider soundstage of open-back headies in general. I have the DT990 Pro 250 ohms and really enjoy them (I know many find the highs rather fatiguing, but I don't mind them too much - a slight tweak around 10k helps a little).

My use case is a mix of music and gaming.

Think I found an answer on the DT770 owners thread that's active atm. Will probably say a final farewell to my 553s then post them in the classifieds.

I want to post my AKG 553 Pro for sale. What is a fair selling price?

Thanks HB. That is my plan. I'm a long standing member on Carbonite (but new here). The audio bug has bitten me so Ill be around plenty.

That said, my question stands. Id appreciate an indicative market price as I do want to sell my AKGs.
