I'm reviewing the DT 770 Pro 32 Ohm (now with velour pads!) I'd like to note that even though I love quality audio I wouldn't consider myself well-versed in it. The only other "quality" headphone I've had was the ATH-M50x which I enjoyed for 3 years but over time they were just getting more and more uncomfortable, to the point where I decided to just get new headphones. Since comfort was the first thing on my mind at the time I went with these, and I got the 32 ohm version for its shorter cable and easier drivability. When they were originally released they only came in a version with black pleather but now you can get them with the classic Beyerdynamic grey velour.
I can say in short that these headphones, for their price, are just fantastic, but I'll go through each feature in detail.
BUILD/LOOKS: Build quality is something I don't pay too much attention to when buying headphones but I can say that build is one of the best features of these headphones. They're big and brawny and built like a tank, with class. The headband is metal, with a snap-on leather cover which feels very nice on the head. The cups are thick and made with a hard plastic. These things can take some beatings and probably survive just fine. Definitely built to last. As previously mentioned, the ear pads are made of soft grey velour. The cable is also thick enough to withstand some damage, but is unfortunately non-detachable. This might bother some people, doesn't bother me though (at least I say that now until it breaks lol.) They do look a bit funky and large, definitely old school, but also classy and cool, with a bit of a German industrial edge. "DT 770 PRO [insert ohm here]" is embossed on the side of each cup with a silver finish and look nice.
PORTABILITY: Not the most portable headphones, but they can work as a portable. Only the 32 ohm version though, because the other versions have cables that are too long and need an amp to sound good. Still, they might be a little too big to walk around outside with and they're not the most low-key looking so keep that in mind. They'll work nice on plane and train rides though. They come with simple carrying bag that has a name tag like you'd find on a suitcase! Kinda silly, but hey, it's a nice thought.
ISOLATION: These isolate pretty well. I wear them in the office and at normal to loud volumes I really can't hear much around me, and at home with the tv on its the same thing unless the tv is loud. Not bad but not the best. The pleather pads will give you more isolation.
COMFORT: Now, yes, the acclaimed Beyer velour pads feel GREAT. They really do feel like pillows on your head. However, the comfort is not QUITE as good as I expected. Still pretty comfortable, they have a bit of a clamp, and they are a tad heavy, so I can feel a bit of pressure on the sides of my head that can get a bit uncomfortable. I find after having them on for a while they start to loosen up a bit while on my head. The cups are large which I like so no worries about my ears touching the cups. They might not be as form-fitting as a Sennheiser.
SOUND: The most important part right? I'll write about the bass, mids and treble, to what I hear in the best way I can describe.
Bass: The bass on these is the reason they're so popular. From what I've read, the 80 ohm version is tuned differently and has more bass, and that's the one that gets talked about the most, while the 32 ohm and 250 ohm, while still extended and emphasized, isn't as much and is closer to neutral bass. But it is clean and detailed, far from one note sounding, you can really hear bass lines/notes/plucks the way you should. Listen to Jaco and you can follow his bass lines easily. The sub bass is not shy and can go deep on a bass heavy track. Tracks with not much bass might be a little lacking but that's how it should sound, right? It's pretty accurate, with slight emphasis and great extension.
Mids: The mids tend to get criticized on these but that again is mainly the 80 ohm version, and most likely the added bass that just covers them more. The 32 ohm version is reported to have the most mids of the three, but is probably only slightly more than the 250 ohm. What I like about the mids is that, again, they're clear and detailed. I can hear what singers are saying better than I could with the M50x. They might be a little recessed but I don't know a whole lot about mids, and I think they sound fine. They could you a little bump in the lower mids maybe for some warmth and heft, as the upper mids can sound a bit thin, but it isn't a deal breaker. Probably not the best mids but they are just fine.
Treble: Ok...my one biggest criticism about the sound signature of these. Yes, these headphones are a little on the bright side, but I don't have much of a problem with that. The treble overall is actually just fine, and contains a nice airiness and crispness that sounds pretty pleasing. Listening to Pat Metheny's tone is beautiful, and the crispness of the cymbals in AC/DC's Back In Black sounds engaging and clean. The problem lies with its 10k peak. These things emphasize sibilance a bit too much, I think. If you listen to a recording that's already really sibilant it might sound piercing on these. I never find it painful or anything, I will say that, but it is present and a little annoying. On recordings with no sibilance there's no problem, but a sibilance overall is going to be a bit emphasized though. It's just their sound signature, and a lot of headphones have a peak in that region, even the HD800. The reason for it is because it's a part of the spectrum that is often hard to hear unless it's brought out, so engineers do it to add more details, which is nice, but it comes at the expense of sibilance. I've yet to find a recording/mastering where the treble was too much for me but those recordings did sound a bit harsh. Anything neutral will sound just a comb bright. Not much of a problem really. Treble sensitive people might think so though.
The good thing is the treble is the one area I noticed improvement after a month. Out of the box they were more bright and sibilant than they are now, and I almost returned them, but it all smoothed out nicely. I quite like it, except for that 10k peak...if it weren't for that and if they added a little warmth these would be perfect for me.
Soundstage: I already mentioned that they are very cleared and detailed across the board, and the soundstage is fantastic! One of the best out of any closed can. You can hear all the different details easily, which is good and not so good when you're listening to a bad recording because you can pick out the flaws, but I like that. They're brutally honest. You can hear the instruments and where they're located in the mix, and the field is spread wide, adding a nice sense of depth and spaciousness. Very good soundstage, probably its best sound feature.
These are among the most recommended closed back over-ears in this price range and for good reason. They simply sound fantastic and will blow away anyone coming from Apple Earbuds or Beats. I now prefer them much more than the M50x, which now sound bloated and muddy to me. The DT 770 PRO 32 ohm has a nice balance, again leaning slightly towards bright. They have a V-shaped sound signature, which means the bass and treble are extended, and you can hear it here nicely. Opposite of another one of the most recommended headphones I see in this price range, the K550/551/552/553/554, which are considered near flat/neutral. Get these if you want a fun, engaging and punchy sound. The AKG's might be more accurate and analytical but are also thinner/colder and not as exciting. More relaxed perhaps. Many prefer that kind of sound.
Either way, I highly recommend these headphones. For the price they're hard to beat. They used to sell for $250 and even that price would be fair, I think. And they're used in a lot of studios for recording so that should bode well. As previously mentioned, they are a bit bright and have some sibilance due to the treble peak so if you're sensitive to treble, proceed with caution. If you're not used to treble, be aware that it'll take some time to get used to it. In any case, I don't think you'll be disappointed, and I think even people who don't like this headphone would be hard pressed to call it a bad headphone :)
The comfort level is great, my ears (large) do not feel cramped or get sweaty after multiple hours of use, and the cord length is fine for my proximity to a computer, or even for use with phone (it is longer, but these are my use cases), Sound is fantastic, compared to my previous headphones (not the Sennheiser though) which now sound like very expensive toys The Beyerdynamic DT770 pro feels warm, and im hearing things ive never heard before in both games and music.
in case interested the headphones i have acquired through the years, many of these i love for one reason or the other, best when coupled with an amp or amp/dac and they will sound much better than direct to device/Computer.

I tried out the Fostex first. Coming from my old Audio Technica ATH-M50, I really loved the Fostex. Solid build quality. Comfortable. Very deep bass. Better soundstage. Enjoyable highs. Good sound separation. Pads are a bit flat, but I was expecting that. Good price overall for all this. I thought that I had just found the perfect replacement for my old Technicas.
But then I took out the Beyers. They looked much cheaper. Zeos was right saying the material looks like it came straight from a 90s public bus. But man do they deliver. These huge pads are sooo comfortable. The soundstage is in another league compared to the M50 and much better than the Fostex. The bass, while not as deep as the Fostex, is almost perfect. I fell in love.
Has it not been for the DT770, I would have kept the Fostex and probably modded them. At the very least with ZMF pads.
As it turns out, I've kept the Beyer Dynamics and have been using them for a few weeks now. I just love them. These are perfect for me at a very reasonable price point. Highly recommended.
Side note: Both of these headphones are "hard to drive". Listening straight from my phone at max volume produces a decent volume, but nothing loud. Much more enjoyable using my Sprout100 dac/amp. Make sure you take this in consideration when buying either of these!
And BeyerDynamic is really really good at that side. It is very soft and very comfy. Since it is very big, it doesn't even sit on the ears, so that makes real difference.
Sound quality is also very good (not an audiophile though). Very deep basses and you can literally hear everything. I sometimes listen classical music, and this makes it so special, because you are basically in recording room or theater and you can hear ambient sounds more clear. It made the experience really different for me. But on the other hand, high pitched sounds sometimes really high and makes you uncomfortable. There are couple of techniques on the internet to make it better, but I don't think I am that worried about it yet.

Après 150 heures d'écoute (environ), films, séries en passant par mon ampli maison, fichiers de musique en wav et quelques-uns au format flac sur mon ordi, j'ai comparé avec 2 autres paires d'écouteurs: Seinheiser et Sony (pas cheap). Je suis ravi et comblé de cet achat, j'entends des détails sur beaucoup de chansons que je n'arrivais pas à entendre auparavant comme les hautes fréquences, la voix, les effects, la profondeur ainsi que l'emplacement des instruments etc... .
Pour le comfort, les oreillettes en velours très comfortable même avec des lunettes sur de longues périodes. Les oreilles restent au frais et la pression des coquilles sur le pourtour des oreilles est très correct. Donc en gros je suis très satifait de mon achat.
