Perfect sound for the price

Posted

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.

Posted

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.

DT770 250Ohm Initial Impressions / Mini-Review

Posted

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...

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

Posted

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,...

For The Price These Are Brilliant All-Rounders.

Posted

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

Posted

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

Posted

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...

Strongly recommend them in the ~150 USD price point

Posted

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...

Best headphones to get your career started

Posted

Pros: Amazing isolation, clean highs that does not pierce !

Cons: Headband clamping, muffled lo end, spatial resolution is sub par.

I bought my first pair of these headphones blindly as a student, based on the recommendation of my lecturer at SAE more than a decade ago. It took me a while to get used to it, but I haven't looked back ever since. Perhaps its what I got used to, but the fact remains that I can trust the sound of these headphones to get a mix out without second thoughts. There was a time when I thought I'd get myself a 'better' pair of headphones. But I ended up getting a second pair of these bad boys after the first pair of these gave up after a long 6 years or so of constant use.    I recently (finally) moved on to an open back headphone that I prefer over this pair, but that is not to say...

The best you can get for the price.

Posted

Pros: Very forward, tons of bass, comfortable & light, sounds very full

Cons: Slow bass decay washes out other frequencies, very close soundstage, fatiguing to listen to for long periods

Though these are by no means perfect headphones, their price and excellent bass make them one of the best headphones you can buy for under $200.   These headphones are very fun to listen to. They give a very forward, full sound that completely immerses you in your music. Bass is deep and boomy, and felt a somewhat uncontrolled compared to other headphones I've owned. Treble sounds fine and there isn't much sibilance. Mids seem to be nice and flat, but can be completely washed out by the bass and treble. These are probably the most closed-sounding headphones I've owned, in that the bass sticks around for too long, recessing the mids. The soundstage is also very small, there is some...

Excellent headphones with nice sound stage and lots of detail, at an affordable price

Posted

Pros: Good sound stage despite closed design; very detailed; good bass with tight grip; extremely comfortable even when wearing glasses; fair price

Cons: No replacable/plugable cable; require amp; a little low in the mids

I've spent most of my life with open type cans. A year ago, after moving into an apartment, we decided to make some changes which necessitated me to get closed headphones. This way I would not disturb my wife and vice versa, I wouldn't be disturbed by the noise of others.   For various reasons - price being one of them (no more than $200) - I chose the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 250 Ohm.   Audio setup: CD collection ripped to flac -> Gmusicbrowser / ALSA on Linux using a bitperfect configuration -> Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card with integrated headphone amp -> DT770 (using the cards headphone amp output)   The first impression is that they are extremely...

Audiophile headphones at an affordable price

Posted

Pros: Wide soundstage, extremely comfortable, blocks out sound, people can't hear your music, very durable, good for all music, best allrounders under 500$

Cons: heavy cord, you will need a good source to get the best out of these.

I am completely re-doing my review on these headphones because I think that these cans deserve it!   I would say that the beyerdynamic dt770 pro 250 ohm are the best closed back headphones under 500$ or even perhaps 1000$ if you have a good enough source to bring out their full potential.  I say this because these headphones offer a true uncolored sound that stays truthful thoughtout the whole frequency response.  Nothing is boosted in any way but these are tuned to deliver a completely flat response with little to no distortion.   Bass : The bass is strong, tight, controlled, and does not get boomy or muddy unless the song itself is not properly recorded.  ...
