DT770 vs M50

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 

Ahoy, 

 

Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro / 80ohms vs Audio-Technica ATH-M50S

 

I'm still playing between these two great headphones. Haven't decided yet which of them should I choose. So I'm looking for help from you experienced people. Both of them have pros and cons, like M50 have the comfort, which is a pretty important thing on long sessions.

 

Electronica (Drum n' Bass, Dubstep etc. too), metal, heavy rock, lounge and popbands like Kent are my thing.

 

So what should I do? Or are there some others for my use?

 

I will gladly reply to your questions if I need to!

 

EDIT: And I like closed ones.

I assume they are for home listening right? where are you plugging them to? i personally dislike how beyers perform with aggresive genres such as metal. They do fine with rock though.

Well, I thought while back that I might buy an amp/DAC but after reading thousands and thousands of reviews and comments, I got that feeling that the most of 'phones can be handled with a normal sound card (so in my situation MacBook's). And I think I don't think I'm going to travel with them (except sometimes I've got them on my neck when in airplane or train..)

Keep in mind that the DT770 Pro is a long time standard in most music studios. It's sturdy, comfortable, with great isolation, very good balanced sound. The only drawback is that is very revealing of poor recordings, while the M50 is less balanced and more forgiving.

The DT770 Pro has a very good level of isolation, just because it's designed to be used in noisy enviroments. Wearing them without playing music is difficult to hear clearly your voice while talking.

the comfort level is not close.

 

the 770 is far far more comfortable than the m50

Heya,

 

DT770 > M50.

 

It's more comfortable, has better sound stage, and even looks better. Unless you require the ability to fold your headphone into a a half-football shape, the DT770 gives you everything you need as a total package.

 

Very best,

Yeah the comfort of the DT770 Pro is superb, even with glasses.

Agreed.

Beyers just look and feel so much better. It's not even a contest. They sound better too, not by a massive margin, but just enough for me to easily choose them, most it has to do with sound stage I wager and depth of cup. It's unbelievable that the M50 costs what it does considering it's weak sound stage and not so comfortable form. The only thing good about it for the cost is the solid construction and foldability and 180 degree swivel of the cups. Otherwise, it doesn't sound or feel like a nice $150ish headphone. The Beyer DT700 however feels and sounds like a $150ish headphone. It just doesn't fold up. I find it superior in nearly every way. And I have both, amongst many others...

 

Very best,

The Beyerdynamic DT-770 Pro 80-Ohm is a great sounding headphone (great bass).

Beyerdynamic U.S.A. sometimes sells refurbished DT-770 Pro 80-Ohm on their eBay listing "bd-usa".

The DT-770 Pro line sounds best when using a headphone amplifier.

On eBay you can get low cost single tube headphone amplifiers (shipped from China).

 

 

The Denon AH-D1100 might work better with your laptop without getting a seperate headphone amplifier.

DT770 by far. Pretty much what everyone else said. Its better in every single way except portability. Just putting my vote in. Good luck!
