His Elektrotechnische Fabrik Eugen Beyer laid the foundations for a world leading manufacturer of headphones, microphones and conference systems – and for today's beyerdynamic GmbH & Co. KG.

The DT 770 PRO is a closed dynamic headphone of exceptional quality suitable for the most demanding professional and audiophile applications. The long term comfort and accurate performance make the DT 770 PRO the perfect monitoring headphone for recording studios, post production or broadcasting situations.

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!
Edit, 2 months on: Used the phones when I recorded DI bass for an EP. Liked them so much that I just use them with my comp now (through an audio interface). Considering buying a second one as a back-up and for when I'm recording with others.
Have the 250 ohm headphones and pair them with a FiiO e12 amp (you need an amp with these). Incredible sound. Not too bass-y but all you need when paired with a decent amp. Definitely an upgrade over the DT 660's which were flimsy as hell. This band is much more durable and feels much more rigid (probably because they aren't plastic!) I can wear these things all day and not experience any discomfort. I recommend getting a hard shell case for storing these.
Now if you have a lot of hair this might not be a problem. I have the opposite of alot of hair, as in none. So all pleather/leather materials stick to my big dome.
Okay, these cans are very nice and I have no osmosis going on. I have worn them for about 13 hours straight and not once did they get uncomfortable. The bass is really punchy in these things. I had to actually create a EQ profile to lower the bass. I listen to hard rock and bass guitars and their pounding drums make the cans almost distort the sound. But once I lowered the bass, they sound really good. The range is really good but they do tend to be a bit more *bassy*.
Quality is good, the y bracket that connects the cans to the head strap is metal. The leather/pleather head strap, if it gets hot or sweaty I have not noticed at all. Buy my head is not perfectly round so the strap across the top of my head tends to disconnect and reattach as I move my head. It has a heavy duty rubberized cord. It likes to roll so I have exactly what I need to use at my desk and the rest of the cord is rolled into a circle and bread tied up to stay that way.
They are not heavy, at least to me, I guess they would be heavy for those who are of smaller stature and slimmer of neck. (I am neither).
If I had to say anything negative about it, is that when I first put them on, I had this suction feeling in my ears, almost a pressure being pushed into my ears. But the feeling went away after I got use to the closed back passive noise cancelling effect. It was extremely noticeable though, I thought, at first, I was getting dizzy or an inner ear infection and it was messing with my equilibrium. But as soon as I took the cans off the pressure equalized. I did some research and many people experience this effect. It does go away though.
Final Thoughts; They are easily worth what I paid for them. I would have paid more for them just from what I know now. The soft ear cans cannot be touted enough. Great sound as long as you like more bass. (which I do). Plus they are fairly cheap for what you are getting. Beyerdynamic did it again! Good job guys/gals.
