The first thing I would like to note is that the 80ohm version has a straight cable whereas the 250ohm version has a coiled cable. This difference has a non-obvious impact on comfort: the coiled cable of the 250ohm version makes the headphones feel heavier. That's because there is more cable that "hangs" off your head. Because the headphones are already pretty lightweight themselves (~270 g) it does make a small but perceivable difference. The straight cable is pretty long so while it will work great at the studio, work or home, it would most likely be a major annoyance if you were planning to use these on the go.
DIFFERENCES IN SOUND
The differences between the two models I've reviewed (80ohm and 250ohm) are subtle but they are there. It's definitely true that the 80ohm version has slightly more bass whereas the 250ohm version has more pronounced highs. I personally love when the bass in a song really pulls you in and makes you want to dance on your desk. With the 80ohm version, I definitely get that. With the other, I kept thinking to myself that the bass was nice, but always a little less impactful than I wished for. If you are the kind of person that boosts the volume of your music until the bass is strong enough, then definitely go for the 80ohm version. I know it's the more expensive version (as of this writing) but you'll be glad you spent the extra.
I have noticed that these headphones need at least a couple of hours of "burn-in" to sound their best. So if you're not super happy with the sound (to me the 250ohms sounded a little harsh at first) then set your headphones in a safe spot and play some pink noise for a couple of hours or even overnight then try again. I know that the effects of burn-in in headphones are a highly debated and controversial subject in the audiophile community. My opinion is that it's the only (virtually) free method of possibly improving the sound of your headphones prior to first use. So why not give it a try?
IMPEDANCE AND AMPLIFICATION
Why would you consider these really nice headphones if you're not interested in good sound? The biggest improvement in sound quality I've ever noticed after getting nice headphones was when I bought a DAC/AMP. These things really do make a difference. Get a Fiio, Centrance Slim or something like that and you won't regret it. If you plan on using these on the go (which I wouldn't recommend because they are fairly big) then definitely go for the 80ohm.
One of my favorite feature of those headphones is the detachable headband pad. One thing I was able to do is to cut some NERF darts, cut them in half and slide them in the headband where needed. This allowed the headphones to make better contact with a larger surface on my head, reducing pressure and discomfort. You can also bend the headband a little bit (it is made of metal after all) but I found that the extra padding allowed me to really adapt these to feel great on my head. These headphones are relatively light. The ear pads can get hot after a while but I've notice that effect decrease over time.
I was looking for the perfect closed-back headphones to use at work. They would need to be comfortable enough to wear for hours at a time and sound great. The Beyerdynamics DT770 Pro 80ohm are perfect for that. I highly recommend them!
So with that being the case, these are obviously the best headphones I've ever owned. I coupled these to a Schiit Modi/Magni stack and the whole setup works wonderfully. Everything sounds very clear, from music to games. I was originally going to pick up Sennheiser's HD598's after hearing wonderful things about them, until I read that metal music isn't great with them, so I opted for these instead.
My preferred genre, mostly extreme prog like Ne Obliviscaris, Xanthochroid, pre-Heritage Opeth etc, is great with these headphones. At first the seeming lack of low end kind of threw me, but it really only seems to be with groups that don't overly load their sound with bass in the first place. I suppose you can't really have what isn't there lest it sound artificial. It also may be that the cans simply needed to be broken in, because I don't really notice it anymore, unless I'm just used to it. Everything sounds nice and punchy.
Games for the most part are great as well. I can't recall actually being able to hear footsteps on BF4 before, and the snap of bullets really gets my attention now. The only real complaint I have is with CS:GO (not the only complaint I have with the game itself, mind), which will hopefully cease to be an issue since they are updating sounds. The AK-47 (as of early 9/16 anyway) shot is an absolute nightmare of treble ear cancer with these headphones. On the flip side, I can hear footsteps from quite a distance away, even if the poor directional sound quality keeps you guessing as to where exactly they are coming from (Gaben pls).
In short, if you have the hardware to run these cans, I highly recommend them. With the Schiit stack (heh) I run lo-gain at around 55% on the dial, with 100% windows volume. I have yet to come close to maxing the Zune player volume.
