250 Ohm Version - Designed for Home Stereo and Critical Listening
This is the 250 ohm version of the DT 770 Premium line, designed explicitly for use with dedicated stereo equipment such as home theater systems and headphone amplifiers. Conventional headphones with lower impedance ratings offer higher volumes at the same level of input, but need heavier drivers to compensate for low impedance or risk sounding muddy and distorted. The lower mass of the drivers of a higher-impedance headphone delivers unparalleled clarity and response, but takes more power to achieve the same loudness. So a higher-impedance headphone such as the 250-ohm DT 770 is ideal for use in home stereo applications, where clarity and dynamic response are paramount, as well as for use with high-performance home theater equipment and headphone amplifiers.
A gold plated 3.5 mm stereo jack with 1/4" inch adapter is included and is therefore suitable for use with almost all headphone amplifiers.
Closed Design for Increased Noise Isolation with Velour Earpads
The DT 770 features a closed-back design for private listening in noisy environments. This 250-ohm version is excellent for home stereo applications, as well as using virtual surround sound with your high-performance home theater system. Anywhere you need high-resolution audio performance, the DT 770 delivers with immersive, isolated sound and wearable comfort. The innovative bass reflex system offers expansive yet clear low-end response that stays inside the headphone, and the velour earpads make long periods of extended listening easy on the ears.
Dynamic Transducer for Increased Fidelity and Performance
Without exception, beyerdynamic manufactures the dynamic transducer systems that go into their headphones in-house. From the magnet and diaphragm to the careful wiring and circuitry, beyerdynamic controls quality at all levels of manufacturing, ensuring superior engineering in their headphones down to the smallest detail.
An extremely strong neodymium magnet system offers the DT 770 highly detailed sound reproduction quality, and is mechanically very robust. This increased efficiency also leaves the DT 770 with greater power reserves for precise linear response that is especially suited for high-performance audio applications where precise audio reproduction is the most important consideration, and dedicated equipment is available such as a headphone amplifier. The large 250-ohm voice coil provides unrivaled response clarity and increased impulse fidelity.

So I started searching for a sealed model. These beyerdynamics are the best that I found within the realm of reason price-wise. I'd been watching them here for some time, and the price dropped by about 35% to under two hundred, so I picked them up.
The build quality is pretty good. I don't like that the metal brackets holding the earcups are not polished around their edges -- they're a bit sharp or rough. It wouldn't have cost much to smooth them out a little. Aside from that, I have no complaints. They're comfortable, almost as comfortable as the 701s. But they don't have the 701s' auto-fit feature.
The sound off the bat was incredibly bright, almost strident or peaky in parts of the upper registers. With about 100+ hours of use, however, they're breaking in pretty well and easing off a bit. Still a bit on the bright side. The bass is emphasized much more in the 770s than in the 701s. (Some people say the 701s are lean, but I think that's a mistake. They have deep bass. It's just musical in the 701s -- they don't sound like a car with a kicker box in the trunk. If you want to hear lean bass, find some AKG 240DFs.) These 770s sometimes emphasize the bass a bit too much. But I can live with them because the bass is still controlled, not boomy. The mids are OK on the 770s, much better than the pair of Sennheiser 280s I have from several years back, but they lack the liquidity, presence, and detail of the 701s in that range.Read more ›
A few months ago Amazon offered a great deal on these cans (somewhere in the ballpark of half the price they are currently offered at). At first I was disappointed; they are not good without a lot of power and paired with just my ipod, even at maximum volume they were too quiet, not to mention audibly underpowered, fitting of their ohm rating. However, upon pairing these cans with a cheap Chinese fiio f3 headphone amplifier I am much changed in opinion. Despite the fiio being a very cheap amp ($10 or so), the combination has been marvelous to listen to. While they still need a fair amount of power from the source, they sound much more full, and the bass is properly powered.
Let me start by establishing this point. The bass for these is definitely the selling point. It is strong, full, and 'healthy'. At the same time, the highs and lows sound good as well though admittedly not as clear or clean-sounding as equivalently-priced open headphones (such as Sennheiser or AKG). Some portable audiophiles might live by open designs, but for me something about closed headphones with good bass just works for my ears, and I much prefer these for hip-hop or rock to my open Grado sr60's (although I will admit I am simply not a fan of the Grado sound). Furthermore, for a closed headphone these have a very good soundstage. However, because it is closed they still feel naturally a bit more contained, but at the same time more organized as well. I developed a liking for the closed soundstage for jazz because it reminds me of the small jazz club environment (rather than my Sennheisers, which can occasionally feel too big for quartets).Read more ›
These are not the most picky headphones as far as connection is concerned, they do well un-amped, even from most portable devices; although battery drain is noticeable over ear buds. Amping these makes them really shine and even a cheaper amp make them sound great. Source is important considering these are extremely accurate, junk in == junk out.
Sound quality is outstanding for every type of music I throw at it (Classical, Jazz, Rock, Rap), just make sure your ears are in about the center of the can as too far forward is bass city and too far back is treble town. Definition and Clarity are as good as Sennheiser 600s, if not slightly better. You can hear fingers move up and down strings, and vocals are clear but not over accented, percussion truly shine. The general sound is warm but not so soft that things start blending together. These are my favorite headphones that I own and would recommend them to anyone.
They definitely need "breaking in," although I would suggest simply running your iPod or similar overnight into these 'phones for a couple of weeks. I'm not sure if using "pink noise" is any better.
I use these alongside Audio-Technica ATH-M50s and AKG K240Ms (the older Mk. I model), and, though I like all three, the DT-770s are incredibly detailed and engaging -- while I would compare between all three when doing critical mastering chores.
