Thanks Maltar and SJB.. yeah, the only way to really be sure whatever I like or dislike how the DT770's sound is by actually hearing then.. I've heard a lot of people saying that it is bass heavy though, and since I don't really appreciate something "pounding" on my ears, I may not adapt to then at all... but I guess I really have to try first.

There not really bad inputs, Is just the bass is an issue....

The same can be said for the ads700 lack of bass...

DT770 too much bass...

 

Once you have listened to them tell us what you think...

Hope you like your new headphones....

The DT770 Pro 80 has incredible immersion, the BEST positioning I have ever heard for gaming, and a pretty big soundstage considering it being a closed headphone (which tend to have miniscule soundstages).

 

Those are the pros. The cons are that the bass is boomy, the overall sound signature can tend to be quite muddy at times, and there's just way too much warmth in the sound. They are nowhere near being a balanced headphone, and the bass will overpower the smaller details.

 

It's a love it or hate it headphone. They are quite the polar opposites of the AD700.

 

I would have gone with the Premium DT770 32ohm myself for mixamp gaming. They seem to be much more balanced in sound, without the overwhelming bass.

 

They are perfect for basshead gamers. I thought that's what I was until I got my hands on the K701. I sold the DT770 Pros immediately afterwards, and replaced them with the Creative Aurvana Live, which has less bass (but still WONDERFULLY full for gaming), kept the nice warmth, and is quite a bit clearer in the mids and highs. The trade off was the loss of the Beyer isolation and a little bit of the big soundstage the DT770 Pros had.

Thanks for sharing Envy. I'll see if the DT770s-32ohm are avaiable for testing too.. I'm really interested in some isolation

Really....

 

The bass on the dt770 are that bad.

 

I would have thought the more bass = more immersion...

 

But i guess the type of bass you are describing will also drown out the other sounds.

One thing you need to be careful with... the DT770 has a lot of versions, and the Pro vs. Premium in particular is a huge difference. Be sure you know which model you are trying.

Just like everything else in life, there comes a point where alot becomes too much. Things that didn't have alot of bass sounded pretty cool, but when something happened in a game where bass was everywhere, it got to be very fatiguing to have all that thumping in your head. The 770 pro80's showed me that I like quick, clean bass, and clarity.

post #221 of 319

Okey maltar, once I'm able to try the headphones I'll let you guys know my impression.. it may take a while though..

post #222 of 319

The DT770 Pro is a basshead's headphone. The problem here is that basshead headphones do NOT make for good gaming headphones. You want a quicker bass response, not the slooooow boomy bass the 770 Pro 80's have. If you can find a way to limit the bass of the 770 Pro 80s while gaming, the immersion and accurate positioning may just be one of the very best. Unfortunately, I'm a console gamer, and there is no way to EQ out the bass with my Mixamp.

True 

 

Quicker bass response....

 

Beats Boomy Bass....

 

I guess thought Boomy Bass would be good for bass heavy tracks thought......

The problem is that games tend to have constantly changing frequencies, as well as frequencies that stay put. For example on Mass Effect 2, while you're on your ship, there is a constant low end hum. With the DT770 Pro 80, it's so emphasized that you really can't hear the dialogue well, if BARELY. You need a good even curve, so that nothing outdoes anything else. Music is a lot more forgiving. Games can point out headphone's flaws pretty easily.

True games can easily pinpoint headphones flaws easily...

 

Also with the dt770 the same apply`s...

 

Once he has replied back, then we can see...

 

Thanks for in more depth's reply for the dt770...

 

If the person buying the dt770 new all this info...

 

He probably would of looked somewhere else for a closed gaming headphone...

 

Thanks for your input...
