You can't afford to compromise on your sound. Using cheap headphones is like putting cut-rate tires on an expensive sports car; no matter how great your gear, your material, and your room are, if you don't monitor properly, you're not going to get the results you're looking for. That's why you need Beyerdynamic's DT 770 PRO headphones! Put on these premium 'phones and hear exactly what's going on. Better accuracy, better performances, better mixes! Once you've had a chance to wear these performers, you won't want to use anything else!
Top Customer Reviews
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!
After reading many of these reviews and researching the specs for each model I decided the 80 ohms were just the right vibe for me and all my applications. Let me say - I love when risks pay off! The minute I slipped these on I was blown away. (which is why this review is rather LONG)
Biggest factors were:
1. Comfort - The velour earpads are incredibly luxurious and snug against the head without being claustrophobic or sweat inducing (both of which I have horrible issues with). I was especially concerned about this because it is something that happens to me with pretty much any ear cup trapping heat against my head. I am a hyperhidrosis sufferer of over 28+ years, and since that is never going away and any little thing can trigger a nasty sweating episode, I certainly don't want my number one and favorite activity to be contributing to that! I have been wearing these for hours at a time (longest session was 3.5 hours so far) and at times forget they are on - they are just that comfortable in their design. The cord is long, but if you run it behind your back it never gets in your way or adds considerable weightiness. The adjustable headband is genius in the snap design and I love how sturdy they feel. Although they look heavy I was amazed at how light weight they actually are. Another issue I tend to have with overears is significant pain on the top of my head from plastic rub or behind my ears rubbing. I have been wearing these almost non-stop for about 3 days now and have not had one complaint. I just have to remember to take them off to let my ears have a break from their amazing SOUND.
2. Sound quality (listening) - the 80s are super well balanced if you are using applications that do not require amplification. They are perfectly designed for your every day musical consumption through a computer or smartphone, but I mostly bought this set to record vocals with my mic. They give me a rich, all around balanced experience where i feel the trebles are clear enough and the bass is not so "thuddy" it seems "muddy." It's actually very punchy, warm, and responsive feeling. Don't get me wrong, I err on the side of more bass as I love hearing that rich tone, but I never want it to be overpowered as some in the Beats brand can be. I do use Beats tour 2.0 as my main earbud, but for an over ear they can be a little overpowered. On that note, some headphones require really precise tuning with an EQ to manipulate their best performance, but these Beyerdynamics are as plug and play as you could hope for. I listen to a very broad range of music too - from punk to classic rock to EDM to Alternative to hard rock, to Prog, to some pop and metal etc.. . I'm just an all around music enthusiast and these headphones make me hear all the same songs in a whole new light. And that's exactly what I was looking for since I want to enjoy the same thing over and over, but never tire of having a new experience with something even though it's familiar. You definitely don't need your device turned up too high to enjoy the depth of the sound you get. The pads are not noise cancelling, but they do a great job of isolating sound close enough to you to fully immerse you in the experience.
2.2 Sound (recording) I haven't got to use these as much yet on the recording side with my Blue USB mic, but from the little I sampled with it they are perfectly designed to meet my expectations. They do a fabulous job of isolating the input in your ear, but still allow you to hear some of what is happening around you without it being a distraction. I noticed that right away and loved that aspect. They cut down the distractions, but don't make you "disappear."
3. Aesthetic appeal/long term investment - They are stylish while still being professional - so many headsets can go for one goal and miss out on the other. I think this set does a great job of adding excitement/uniqueness to the design without sacrificing quality. They don't look "stupid" on your head - like a gimmicky, "I just want to be cool" look. But they definitely aren't boring or cheap looking either. In fact, they are less bothersome on my huge head of hair than some headsets have been. If you have alot of hair to hide them, they can almost look like earmuffs instead of headphones, and while possibly an irrelevant point, I thought it was pretty neat. :)
All parts are replaceable too! So that sets them apart to be a good long term investment if you find you enjoy the experience as much as I do.
Clsoing points are - there is no compromise for quality or well engineered, smartly run, passionate companies. This was my first experience with Beyerdynamic and it has been one well worth having.
I mainly use these headphones for music production, recording, and general listening. The frequency response on them is very clear and neutral. What I like most about these headphones is that they don’t color sound. When you hear bass, it’s that bass. It’s not boosted or reduced by the headphones so if you use them to mix, you aren’t deceived into thinking your song sounds like something it’s not.
These headphones are of suburb quality. The headband and ear cups surround your ears and head and it feels like a perfect fit when you adjust them. You can also change the band covering if it ever wears out or becomes otherwise damaged. I have yet to change mine and I’ve had these headphones for two years. The padding on the ear cups is a suede type of material and it doesn’t feel sweaty if you wear them for a long time and they also don’t wear out. They’re still just as puffy as the day I bought them.
