Positive Reviews


Perfect sound for the price


Pros: Sound quality, comfort, price

Cons: Need to be EQ a little

Really perfect sound quality for this price! And headphones are extremely comfortable!   A little bright in highs, but it can be easily corrected with a little eq tuning.    For that people who founds sound a little bright and sibilant I highly advise to try Equalizer APO with the following EQ configuration: Quote: Preamp: -2 dB Filter 1: ON PK Fc 32,0 Hz Gain 3 dB Q 1,50 Filter 2: ON PK Fc 50,0 Hz Gain 2 dB Q 1,40 Filter 3: ON PK Fc 80,0 Hz Gain 2 dB Q 2,00 Filter 4: ON PK Fc 125,0 Hz Gain 0 dB Q 2,00 Filter 5: ON PK Fc 200,0 Hz Gain 0 dB Q 1,50 Filter 6: ON PK Fc 300,0 Hz Gain 1 dB Q 2,50  Filter 7: ON PK Fc 500,0 Hz Gain 0 dB Q 1,50 Filter 8: ON PK...

I do not like the sound of the DT 770.


Pros: They are attractive appearing

Cons: Their sound is muffled, dull and boring, in my opinion.

I am really surprised to see so many positive reviews on the DT 770.  To my ears, the sound this headphone renders is muffled.  To my ears they sound as though someone has placed a heavy cloth over the microphones before recording.  That muffled sound distracts from the details heard from the music.  The frequency range is not well balanced on these headphones, in my opinion.  The mid frequency range is too loud compared to the rest.  There isn't enough for my tastes from the high and low frequencies.   This is definitely not a headphone I would use for any type of audio recording analysis.  Their sound is dull and boring, in my opinion.

Fantastic build quality, durability, and comfort at a great value!


Pros: Quality materials and craftsmanship. Extremely durable. Very comfortable for a closed design. Excellent value.

Cons: Slightly laid back mids.

My Setup   Tested with my Dell XPS 8700 desktop going optical out to a Yamaha RX-V365 amp (1/4 inch headphone out). Then going 3.5mm out from the desktop to my SMSL SAP III headphone amp. I tried it through on-board audio directly from my Dell inspiron laptop, then with the SAP III amp in the mix also. I played various files (FLAC, MP3, M4A) at different bit rates using the fubar2000 media player with all EQ off. I purchased my DT 770 used off a professional DJ. They are several years old and have had their fair share of abuse. I will be comparing this headphone with my Sennheiser HD 600 throughout this review. Although the HD 600 is an open back design at double the price,...

Cans of DOOM


Pros: Excellent bass and sub-bass, comfortable, light but sturdy, inexpensive

Cons: Some compromise in midrange, colored tuning not ideal for all genres

The evolution of headphones has been fascinating to watch over the years. Pretty much everyone aged 50 and younger has grown up using headphones, and have owned many, many pairs. Some may remember the crappy headphones that came with the original Walkman and its progeny that would usually break long before the foam covers would wear off. They were an afterthought, although Sony’s 1979 introduction of the 3.5mm “minijack” stereo connector was useful. In some ways things haven’t changed much since then, as headphones associated with portable audio is still considered disposable. Good full size “over the ear” headphones existed of course, but were mostly used by audio professionals and...

250 ohms for a reason


Pros: - Lovely bass response - do need bass boost imo -detailed and rich sound

Cons: - yes you need an amp - some sound leakage

I love the Beyerdynamic dt770 250 Ohms.  After searching high and low for a closed back headphone I fell upon these knowing that I would carry an amp.   With the Cayin C5 - High gain at about 2.5 volume and yes, some bass boost - they sound tremendous.  I feel an impact of the bass, I feel a sound stage, I hear vocals and I'm enveloped in a lush sound.  Great for instrumentals.  Great for well recorded music, great for all genres.   However they do leak some sound.  Be prepared, you won't hear the outside world but if it's quiet around you, the outside world shall hear you.   That being said, go for these, get the Cayin C5 and be happy.  ...

DT770 250Ohm Initial Impressions / Mini-Review


Pros: Awesome with every kind of music, super deep and controlled bass, crystal clear highs

Cons: Headgrip is a little too strong right now, needs amping

Background   To this day, I have owned a couple of "pretty good" headphones (in my opinion pre-DT770 : * Sennheiser HD555 * Sennheiser HD448 * Shure E2-C IEMs (lost/stolen) * Ultimate Ears Super-fi 5 IEMs (lost/stolen)   I also own an Fiio E7 DAC/amp, which I used along with my HD448 at work.   Needing a closed headphone for work, I decided ot purchase a pair of DT770 250Ohm after a lots of reading on here and arround the web. So, I've pulled the trigger on those and the much praised Modi/Magni duo. I actually got the Modi2/Magni2 straight from Schiit's website (note to all canadians: they might not be as cost effective to us with the new USD/CAD change rate...

For The Price These Are Brilliant All-Rounders.


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.

Very nice allrounders


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

Cons: No significant cons

Sound: 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.   Comfort: The DT770/880/990 Pro are the most comfortable cans i tried, thumbs up!   Recommendation: Try em! It's simple as that...

bang of buck set of cans


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...

Good and bad headphone


Pros: Bass controlled but little boomy, Treble very good but little harsh

Cons: Small soundstage, recessed mids, Ear fatigue and sweating, Non removable cable

Creative Sb Omni 5.1 + Dt770 250 ohm

Perfect Sound for the Entry-level Audiophile


Pros: Build, comfortable fit, replaceable parts, price, clarity and warm of sound, clear bass

Cons: TBD

As a beginner to higher-quality cans, my only comparisons for the DT 770 Pro 250 ohm are against a pair of Audiotechnica ATH-M50s and your standard Apple earbuds. That being said, it's not fair to say there is even much to compare, whereas the 770's are the complete package.    Purchased the 770 250 ohms from Amazon for $187 and have only had them for four days now. Coming from the M50s, I also upgraded from the Fiio E6 to E12 so I could properly drive the 770's. Although I was really grooving on the M50s, I didn't always feel they had the warmth and bass I wanted, nor did I care for the swiveling cups. When looking to upgrade, I decided on the DT 770 250 ohm package based on...

Strongly recommend them in the ~150 USD price point


Pros: sound, comfort, price, build quality

Cons: non removable cable

These sound as good as the closed designs can get, imo. They are quite flat. Sure, not the very best out there, but for this price point, you won't get better. They are closed, so you can't expect such airy sound as from open back designs, but they do sound fantastic, and don't get too warm (can't speak for the leather version), but they isolate the sound better. Of all the headphones I ever owned, the beyerdynamic build is just the most comfy for me. If you want a reference set of cans, I'd reccomend these guys. If you want to add some umph to your music, you can always fiddle with amps or eq. The only downside of them is the non removable cable, really. At 250 ohms, even the mobile...
