When I first started using headphones, around 1989, I used cheap ones. Then I used ones that were a little more expensive, and a little better. At the end of the 1990s and into the the 2000s, my favorites were Sennheiser. They may have improved since then, but for the two models I used--one for $80.00 and the other for $200.00--the connection to the left earpiece would come loose after about two years of steady usage. Fortunately I made use of their two-year warranties (Sennheiser readily replaced the old sets with brand new ones). More recently I had better luck with Sony headphones. I used two models, both moderately expensive (over a hundred dollars). They sounded about as good as the Sennheisers, but they lasted longer. My Sony MDR-7506 headphones, however, did--after about four years of usage--develop a loose connection to the left earpiece, like the Sennheisers. Unlike the Sennheisers, which HAD to be replaced, a slight jiggling of the cord would correct the looseness on the Sony's. A few weeks ago with my new computer, I got a free Creative Labs gaming headset. They were inferior to my Sennheisers and Sonys.
If you compare only the looks of these Beyerdynamic DT 770s to the other headphones I have used, you might say the Beyerdynamics are better. The earpieces are large enough to completely cover my ears, and the padding is an attractive gray velvet. Otherwise the construction appears durable and in respectable taste. But I have used them for only a few weeks, not long enough to fairly judge their durability. I HAVE tested their comfort, and in that regard they are inferior to my $80.00 Sennheisers, they are on a par with my $200.00 Sennheisers, and they are inferior to my Sony MDR-7506s. My $80.00 Sennheisers were ear-overs, but their pads were very thick, the most comfortable of any headphones I've owned. Unfortunately their sound was not as good as that of their $200.00 brothers. The pads on the Sony MDR-7506s do not envelope the ears, but they supply comfort for hours of extended use. As with the $200.00 Sennheisers, two or three hours of continuous use of these Beyerdynamics typically causes some soreness on my ears. But a little repositioning of the earpieces solves the trouble.
Despite the handsome looks of these Beyerdynamics DT 770s, because of the comfort factor I would return to my old Sony MDR-7506s if it were not for one critical factor. The sound.
I read reviews before buying the DT 770s, and I did not really believe the sound was as good as was claimed. I mean my MDR-7506s had given me GOOD sound, and I just did not believe it could get any better. But they had developed that loose cord, and I thought I should get some new headphones before the looseness became uncorrectable. Thus the Beyerdynamics. Though they were not much more expensive than my MDR-7506s, they gave much better sound. Surprisingly good. Immediately I noticed that the DT 770s had much deeper bass than any of my Sennheisers or Sonys. In fact, unrealistically deep. But it's not bad, and I've become accustomed to it. Depending on the sound--e.g., explosions or bass tones in music--the unrealistically deep bass is pleasurable. Yet it is not the bass that makes the DT 770s' sound so much better. It is--to borrow a phrase of another reviewer--the sound landscape. With movies supporting digital sound processing, the 3D positioning is sharper, and I hear more sound effects than I have previously heard.
Sharper sounds and more sounds...those are what make these headphones the best I have used.
The only serious doubt I have about these Beyerdynamics is their durability. Will the connection with the left earpiece break down after a couple of years, as did my Sennheisers? I do not know.
WARNING! A selection of Beyerdynamic DT 770s are available. Mine are the Pro-80s, which mean they are 80 Ohm. More powerful models are available, for example a 250 Ohm model. I prefer loud volume with my headphones, and I thought the 80 Ohm would be most suitable for the X-Fi Titanium Fatality Pro soundcard in my desktop PC and for the headphones port on my Samsung T24A350 combination HDTV/Monitor. With my T24A350 I use an LG BD630 Blu-ray player to watch movies. I was also cost-conscious; so maybe if you can afford a more powerful set of DT 770s, you should get them. But depending on what you use them for, YOU MAY NEED A HEADPHONES AMPLIFIER IF YOU GO FOR THE MORE POWERFUL MODEL. I use a FiiO E9 desktop headphone amplifier with my DT 770 Pro-80s, but I do not NEED the amplifier. It just saves power consumption for my PC and my HDTV/Monitor, both of which give out plenty enough volume for the DT Pro-80s without using an amplifier.
August 13, 2012 Follow-up Remark:
I began using the headphones at the end of February 2012. After about four months of use, maybe three hours a day, they have developed a defective vibration in the left earpiece. This occurs only when I listen to particular sounds, maybe particular sound tracks or frequencies. I don't know what sets it off. Maybe if I took the left earpiece apart, I might find a loose screw. I don't know; I have not tried. Rather than trouble myself with the labors of warranty and return, I decided to try Sennheiser. I have lowered my rating of these Beyerdynamics from five stars to four stars.
March 17, 2013 Follow-up Remark:
In a comment, Misha Jones said, "So, to recap, you own a pair of headphones that you paid almost $200 for, after 5 months they go defective, and you still give them 4 stars? Am I missing something here, or do you have $ to burn?"
That's a good comment, and I confess that I do NOT have money to burn. I was annoyed that these headphones bugged out after only a few months, but I was too timid to blast them with a one-star rating. I was afraid that something on my end was causing the defect. But I've been using a set of Sennheiser HD558s for about seven months with the same equipment, and I have not gotten a similar defect (or any other defect). So I have now retitled my review and lowered my rating to two stars. Two stars instead of one star because I'm still uncertain why the defect developed. Also, the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PROs (80 ohms) did sound great for the few months that they functioned properly.
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!
