Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO Closed Studio Headphones - 250 Ohms


Pros: Every type of music that comes out of these sounds very good. Period. Maybe not perfect, but it performs extremely well regardless.

Cons: Struggles with the very low and very high end of the frequency spectrum at times. Very rarely. Price if not on sale.

If you are like me and listen to a wide variety of music then look no further than the beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO.  God bless the Germans.  Top quality construction and sounds brilliant across a broad range of musical genres.  Great price on Amazon to top it all off.  Couldn't be happier.


Pros: Price - Build Quality - Sound - Customizable

Cons: higher impedance (mid range) needs a decent amp/dac and source

I won mine at an eBay auction, slightly used and all reviews really live up to the fullest except for some over hyped cans which I have also tested before I decided to have this set.

So to presume mine has already burned in, was thinking of making it as my main home rig but I need to find a decent amp to unleash its might wherein my Fiio E17 couldn't contrary to the rave of this combo. I am using it mainly as a gaming headset as I have a very sluggish laptop and it takes a while set this baby up. I use it with my xbox - analog optical audio adapter - optical cable to the fiio e17 and finally this DT Pro 770 Pro and I could say it really has a solid performance, always I am on MW3 multiplayer and I could accurately hear footsteps and help me with better killstreaks.

As for my LAPTOP/PC audio setup I use foobar+asio fiio drivers+e17 and I could say it sounded neutral (punch and sparkle eq setting). I need to have me a decent amp to make a final conclusion. Will definitely recommend to everyone looking for a pro sounding all around over the ear headphones. Will update soon with better details


Pros: Very comfy / Overall good sound quality / Nice lows / Price

Cons: No significant cons


Overall good sounding. My DT880 might sound somewhat more refined in the mids and highs, but in the lows and especially in the low-lows the DT770 beat em. They are probably my 2nd favorite closed headphone, right after my beloved Denon AH-D2000 (which seem to outperform all other headphones I tried). I think it's a good idea to EQ this cans, by slightly raising the mids and minimally taming the highs you can really improve the sound of this cans.



The DT770/880/990 Pro are the most comfortable cans i tried, thumbs up!



Try em! It's simple as that...


Pros: Pretty big soundstage for closed back. Tight, punchy bass, nice highs, super comfortable. Good bang for buck.

Cons: Mids are a bit neglected, cable is integrated

I just got my pair, and I can say that it was well worth the money I paid for it. I have a homemade discrete amp to drive them which makes everything sound brilliant. Of course, that's what is needed to drive the 250 Ohm versions but I guess a portable amp will just barely do the trick.


For the price, I would say that these cans are worth the money as they have a pretty astounding soundstage for closed-back after I compared them to a pair of Sennheiser HD 650s that my friend has. In addition, the build quality is superb and it seems that they can withstand a couple of kicks or drops in their lifetime. 


Good if you're a starting audiophile like me, well worth the money in both terms of sound and build quality.


Pros: Amazing sound stage for closed back, The frequency range on these is very impressive, they have great tight bass, clear mids, and pretty nice highs.

Cons: Integrated cable

I've only had a few hours to burn these in, but so far I am extremely impressed. As of now I have the FiiO E6 amp to drive them, and it pushes them better than I expected. Being that these are 250 Ohm there aren't many portable amps that can do these cans justice. They frequency range is what I'm most impressed with 5Hz-35000Hz. They provide bass if you want it, and it is pretty clean and tight. The mids are very enjoyable, and I believe the highs to be pretty good too. Overall these headphones are great, especially for their value. L3000.gif


Pros: Too many to list

Cons: Cable

Set up for review:

IPOD Classic 6th gen

Electric Avenue PA2V2 amp

WAV Files only.



Brilliant sound from closed cans for the price

Build Quality is top notch

Sounds great with various genres (Funk, Soul, Jazz, Hip Hop)



Not a fan of the cable. Would prefer a straight cable


Need to know:

These really need an amp for portable use.






Pros: Exelent Bass response and mids. As comforatable as wearing a dead lamb on your head.

Cons: highs are a tad light, bass ever so slightly muddled in the extreames.

Great, Definatly need burning in to help with the highs. Nice soundstage for closed. So mother lovin comfortable. Perfect pair with a Hi-FiMan EF-2A Dac/Amp.


Pros: Warm mid, strong bass

Cons: Heavy Twisted cable

This is one good headphone with the characteristics of warm mids, pronounced bass, and with clean trebles. The only thing that bugs me is the very long twisted cable, heavy for mobility


Pros: Design, Comfort, Durability, Soundstage, Value, and they are great for mixing.

Cons: I hear these as too harsh without the extra power from an amplifier.

All I'm going to say is that in terms of audio professionals these are really a bargain and qualified for the job.

I know that many audiophiles prefer studio reference monitor-like headphones, but I can't make the excuse that these sound harsh when I'm mixing. They exposed flaws in my mixes the first time I reviewed a track with them. The extra bass response that might sound loose or muddy in some tracks allowed me to tighten up the bass in my own tracks, and not just ignore it when I put these on.

Initially I purchased these headphones for walking around listening, but once I heard them I decided to use them for the tracking, mixing, and mastering and take my Shure SRH940s with me instead. Mostly for the reason that these do not get loud enough for me to commute with, almost, but not quite there.

I recommend these headphones to people who would like to be considered audio professionals. Anyone who likes to analyse sound & not necessarily music itself will get a great result from these. I still recommend always analysing with at least two different pairs of headphones anyway though.

P.S I like the room of the headphone, the speakers do not touch your ears which probably improves the sound stage in some way.
