I'm looking for closed back cans for work. Running odac and o2. These cans are top of my list.
I was planning on getting these in six months. Just bought m100s 6 weeks ago, x1s yesterday.
My wife is going to kill me! But just found out that these are supposedly no longer being made. But 3 years ago!!!
How is the price still so good? Should I grab them now or wait six months when my wife won't kill me if I wait to buy these.


The old Beyer DT770's are discontinued, which were quite a bit different sonically from the newer designed series. Only the 770 Pro is sold new at most places. Has this one also been discontinued or are you talking about the old model? The old model is not sold too often on the forums F/S section.

I'm looking for the pro 25o model. They are not on Beyer's website so I assume all the dt-770s models have been discontinued and places like amazon are just selling old stock.

The DT 770 Pro(32 ohm, 80 ohm, and 250 ohm) are on Beyers website.

Beyer doesn't sell most of their pro headphones on their website and hasn't for a while, so they have to be bought by a third party seller. http://north-america.beyerdynamic.com/shop/hah/headphones-and-headsets/studio-and-stage/studio-headphones/dt-770-pro.html

I bought mine from Amazon.com. Some third party usually sells them. The current seller from this link is a place called Sonic Sense. I don't remember who the third party seller was when I bought mine, close to a year ago. Other than a bit of noise from the cord, I haven't had any issues with mine, so haven't needed support.

Hello,

 

I recently purchased a pair of 32 Ohm Beyerdynamic dt990 premium headphones and I have found that the bass is muddy and that most symbols sound quite tinny. I am primarily running the headphones from a 160 gigabyte iPod Classic.

 

I was wondering if an amplifier would fix these issues, or if its best to cut my losses and try to sell these headphones.

Hi

 

Did you buy them second hand or New?  If new, return them, my guess is that they are defective.  It happens.

 

I've run my 880s, 701s, 650s and T-1s from my Sansa Fuze at times and the only thing that suffered was the ability to play really loud, never the quality.

 

Edit to say it could also be the quality of the recordings you're listening to.....

a 32 Ohm headphone most likely does not need an amp to power,

if you do not like what you are getting from this headphone you should get rid of it.

 

even if you have the 600 Ohm version, 

adding an amp do not change the sound that much,

maybe 5% - 10% of change tops.

Yeah it could be what you're listening to. If this is your first "good" headphone you need to give it some time. You might realize that a lot of your library is poorly recorded or stored in low quality formats. Try material that you know sounds great and that you are very familiar with. If you still don't like them you might want to look for something with a different signature.

Not sure if these are my first "good pair". The recordings have a bit rate of 320. Perhaps I have just been spoiled by the highs of my older pair (Alessandro MS1).

 

At this point I would love to get rid of them and try another pair. If anyone is interested, feel free to PM me.

How long is normal for repair and return of T70 headphones?
Just out of curiosity but... did this issue ever get resolved? Just wondering how reliable Beyer is on their warranty/repair work. Thanks. smily_headphones1.gif
