Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro-80 Closed Studio Headphones Reviews


Excellent pair of headphones


Pros: Great tonal balance, imaging and isolation

Cons: Inefficient, slight bass emphasis, very long break-in required

Directly compared: Sony MDR-7509HD (my last headphones) Sure SRH840 Sennheiser HD380 Pro Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro-80 Beyerdynamic DT880 Pro - Show quoted text -   Tonal accuracy is very good. I am using as a reference my home theater with Sunfire XT ribbon hybrids and Bag End professional mastering subwoofers. The all important mid-high region is spot on. Bass is slightly emphasized, true, but the degree is exaggerated IMO.   Transients are very good, bordering on excellent.   Imaging is very good, bordering on excellent. Bettered by semi-open and open headphones, but they have their own drawbacks.   Comfort is very good - one can adjust the spring...

Thump Thump Thump


Pros: Fun Bass

Cons: Mids? What mids?

A bass lover's phone for sure.  Can be fun with the right music.  But the bass is of the one-note "whump" variety and that gets boring.  Still, can be good with rock.  I've noticed some pretty sucked out mids, though, so vocals suffer.  And for a bass-head phone, the highs can get pretty brittle.  Not at all a balanced presentation, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun.  Everyone should give these a try.  And they're built like a tank.

My First Pair of Quality Headphones


Pros: Bass, durability, comfort

Cons: Rattling/distorting drivers

These headphones are my first pair of high-end (probably mid-fi to some) cans and after a year or two of use, I have mixed feelings about them. When I first got them, of course they were a HUGE step up and I loved the bass from them, they were the perfect headphones to me. I was hearing sounds I had never heard before in music, hearing imperfections and low-quality sounds as well. However, one thing I've learned on this site and in time with various equipment, terms like "quality" are largely based upon a users' prior experience with other products. I went from some really terrible $20 and $30 over the ear headphones that were just "ok". The jump to these cans was tremendous.   However,...

Great bang for the buck cans


Pros: closed circumaural design, 80ohm design allows use on portables in a pinch, very comfortable

Cons: Eardrum-piercing sibilance prior to break in completion, break in is quite long

I'll preface my review with that I am not a seasoned audiophile, so I don't know all of the jargon, but I do appreciate good sound, and I like what I hear in these.   They are by far the best sounding headphones I have ever listened to.   Granted my collection of headphones is very limited.   I was looking for a closed circumaural design, primarily because I find circumaural cans to be the most comfortable, and I like the isolating effect of closed designs (less sound out to annoy others, less noise in to annoy me). These headphones work very well in that regard.  I have occasionally even flown with them. Who needs active noise canceling, when these work...

Pros: Sound quality, Isolation, Soundstage, comfort

Cons: Siblance, floppy bass

I purchased this headphone after I returned the Sennheiser HD 25-1 II. I was not satisfied with the soundstage of the sennheiser, plus after an hour of wearing them my ears started to feel bruised.   The DT770 Pro does not have these downsides, the only downside is the siblance. In a song with a lot of S's or maybe hard t's the headphone starts to whistle. If the volume is cranked up it the whistle actually hurts my ears. Strangely enough this is not the case with all songs that have a lot of s's. Maybe it is not al the fault of the headphones, maybe the vocals are badly recorded, the singer could have used to much ssssss or the song wasn't mastered right. I have a pair...

What a headphone should be!


Pros: Bass quantity and range, comfort for extended listening, easy to drive

Cons: Recessed mids mean it's not the best choice for some. Earpads lose their shape after time.

The DT770 is a lower priced model of the Beyer line, but it is a boiled down version of the Beyer sound and one of the best values in closed headphones. While known for excellent bass response generally, you will also find them one of the most comfortable in the price range. The ear cups aren't as nice as the DT990 velour pads but they are comfortable. They do get sort of hot after wearing them for a long time. One other great thing about these headphones is how easy they are to drive. They drive well on every mobile mp3 player I tried as well as straight out of a sound card. For hip-hop, electronic, or movies I think this is one of the best headphones you can get for the price.  ...

Pros: Great Bass, Imaging, Isolation, Comfort

Cons: Recessed mids, could use detachable cables

DT770 Pro/80  has an excellent bass response and i mean really huge bass! although it is fully controlled and will not leak into mids. fairly comfortable and easy to drive. the recessed mid-levels is the only issue for me but it's acceptable. therefore it's not recommended for monitoring vocal details. soundstage is surprisingly good for a closed pair of headphones. i wish they had detachable cables but not a major issue for me.  

very good closed headphone


Pros: price, crisp high, good bass, comfort

Cons: cant replace cable

I have been annoyed by air conditioning noise in my room and traffic noise near my house. Almost good headphone I have are open headphone. So I decided to perchace new closed headphone. I choose DT770 PRO 80. Because so many professional musicians use this headphone during recording session. I am very happy with this cans. Highs are crisp, but not harash. Bass is enough. not too bassy. After all, I noticed that Head-fi reviews are reliable. Thanks. :)

Fun, comfortable headphones for those that like bass emphasis


Pros: comfortable, decently controlled bass, especially for the emphasis that it has

Cons: the upper midrange is all but absent, treble is a bit on the harsh side

I was lucky enough to find these headphones at a pawn shop, buried underneath a pile of beats/bose headphones, and boy am I glad I did.  I rated the value of these headphones based on their Amazon price (which I think is good), but for what I paid, the value is absolutely fantastic.   For potential buyers, I'll just point out what I hear, since one man's pro is another man's con.  These headphones have a good amount of bass, and is relatively well controlled.  The mids, especially upper mids, are very recessed.  The treble has a nice sparkle to it, but is a bit on the harsh side for certain music, and tends to get pretty sibilant in the female vocal range.  ...

A true all rounder,a very very versatile can :D


Pros: Really tight and deep bass, very detailed highs without sounding harsh or becoming sibilant, built like a tank.

Cons: None really except for the fact that these could use detachable cables instead.

Words can't do it for me, i went from a cheap headphone like the JBL Tempo to DT 770s , it would be an understatement to say it was a night and day difference. These are are really versatile, i listen to EDM, DNB and kinds of electronic music along with Metal, Hard Rock, JPop and these haven't let me down, i heard about these having recessed mids and are kinda bad for classical music, but doesn't really bother me as i don't even listen to classical. Initially the Bass on these is a little over the top but still controlled, give em some time to get burned in and the bass gets tighter and the highs become more prominent. All in all, if you are like me who wants a fun headphone which can...
