Pros: Bass, mids, highs, clarity, laid-back, nuanced

Cons: hot to wear, cheap plastic finish

 

DT770 Pro Limited Edition 32ohm
 
Look:
770/LE mostly resembles standard version, except for the words and printing on the ear cups. It's plastically ugly kind of black color, sadly.
 
Comfort and Isolation:
Due to its light weight, it does not add too much pressure on the top of the head. Ear pads are pleather but not of high quality material. Isolation is good and helps quiet listening quite a bit.
 
Sound Quality:
For the price it's a nice offer. Soundstage is big. I don't feel much congestion. It's not flat, like the standard version, actually gives a nice sense of space. Bass is punchy but not as tight as other headphones. Vocals are pretty inviting. Plugging in an amp even brings out vocals further. For me it's the highs that are most extraordinary. The highs extend well and naturally without being harsh. Highs simply sound smooth, yet satisfying. It's just very smooth and good sounding. It also has very nice detail retrival and nuance. Maybe it's the close-back nature that allows me to hear the details so effortlessly. I think it has a new kind of balance. Unlike its thinner and harsh cousin, standard 770 pro,I do find the bass, mids and highs all very satisfying. That's what makes 770/LE special. 
 
For its price, there's really not much to complain. If I want to listen to music and need some isolation, 770/LE becomes handy. Too bad it's limited. If you find one, do not hesitate to buy it.

Fair and balanced and to the point. I like it.
How do you think the bass compares to the 770 Pro 80?
How do you think it does directly out of a portable player?
Thanks for reply.
I did compare standard 770 Pro but don't remember much of the details. Sorry about that. But I am sure that 770/LE has very satisfying bass. It has both good quantity and punch.
It does very good straight out from my Sony mobile phone.
