Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro - Limited Edition, 32 Ohms - Page 16

post #226 of 617

Newbie here.  Don't have the audiophile lingo down so apologies in advance.  I've had numerous earbuds and headphones over the years but my only two recent points of reference are my HD598s and the new DT 700 Pro LEs so take everything with a grain of salt.  I ran both headphones through my lapdop and an Fiio E17, listening to 320 Kb/s MP3s or Spotify Premium which streams at 320 Kb/s.

 

I just got the DT770 Pro LEs and I think they're a great complement to my HD598s.  I love the smoothness of the HD598 but was bothered by the lack of bass impact (you can hear the bass but you don't get a tangible feel on the HD598), especially on hip hop and EDM tracks.  The LEs sacrifice a bit of the mids for punchier bass and sparkly treble (but I don't think it's sibilant).  Best example I can think of is Dave Brubeck's Take Five.  The drum solo is alive on the LEs but just heard but not felt on the HD598.

 

The soundstage on the LEs is surprising large for closed cans but not as big as the HD598s.  An exaggeration but kind of like the difference between a small concert hall and a jazz club.  The LEs are more intimate and sometimes that's a good thing.

 

I definitely prefer the HD598s for laid back acoustic recordings and female vocals are absolutely yummy on them.  The LEs are more energetic do great with music that's intended to have energy in them.

I just tried some dancehall on the DT-770 LE... Holy smoking subbass! dt880smile.png

 

These things are brilliant, the foot-tapping-factor is pretty damn high!

Any input on how the LEs respond to amping? Considering an E11 purchase...worth it?

I LOVE my DT770 LE w/ my C421 OPA227. Couldn't recommend it more!

They LOVE amping, the bass gets a lot tighter and everything clears up a lot. The E11 would be a great starting point, then you can always upgrade down the road, but beware of the law of dimishing returns...

Awesome. That's what I wanted to hear biggrin.gif Yeah I'm getting E11 for the interim and saving up for a DACport.

You guys convinced me, I am a long time Beyer fan and I was looking for a more fun/portable headphone for commute and work. So i ordered this one, I found a pretty good price (<200$ in Canada). I can't wait to try them...

 

Thanks for the feedback!

Any one have the old DT 770 32 Ohm Premiums to compare against the DT 770 Pro LEs?  

 

The theory is that Beyerdynamic repurposed the 32 Ohm premium drivers and put them in a pro shell and I'm curious if that's the case.

Beyer states that the drivers in  the Pro LE are brand new but I haven't been looking at part numbers, I'll admit.

 

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to rocking out with Muse on my DT770 Pro LE biggrin.gif

Fixed it for ya!

 

Skunk Anansie is damn good on the DT770AE as well! For the life of me, I can't understand why these can's don't get more attention. I'm seriously considering buying a second set just to keep in storage for when I wear out my current set! dt880smile.png

Seriously guys - If you own the DT-770 AE, you MUST buy this album!

 

 

Skunk Anansie - Smashes and Trashes. It is phenomenal on the 770AE!

Here, have a sample track:

 

Pro tip: Buy the limited edition with the two dvd's and you'll get this:

Its definitely not just a DT770; have you read the headfonia review or any comparisons with the 80 ohm?

Been loving mine for playing Star Wars: The Old Republic. Such a spacious sound, running through big open areas and hearing the ambient space, the tapping of footsteps, the positions of enemies in battle...pretty sweet ^_^
