Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro - Limited Edition, 32 Ohms - Page 28

post #406 of 616

DONT BUY THEM AT THAT PRICE

 

I spoke with a Beyer rep last month and he says they will be selling an unlimited 32 ohm version starting this winter or early next year that will be internally identical to the LE, in other words the same headphone minus the 88 label, but is going to cost under $200 USD.

Seriously, a really entertaining phone! These puppies LOVE rock:) sure the bass is a bit flabby from time to time, depending on what it's amped with, and it's not really cuppy sounding, I had Grado PS500's but a) the discomfort got on my nerves, and b) they are harsh in the treble next to the DT770's.. I actually use them the most. Nice and warm, but not woolly sounding. Tight amping gets them under control:) buy them whatever the price, I think there worth the RRP anyway.

I agree they're worth it but if anyone is willing to be patient they can get a better deal if they are willing to forgo the special "88" label.

Still love mine, they are a perfect companion to my HD650 and sound great, if a tad sibilant at times, out of my HRT microstreamer.

Still loving these...was just listening to Amon Tobin - Horsefish out of my Microstreamer with them and I definitely just thought the voice in the beginning was coming from somewhere in my room XD I love it when that happens...

 

Now listening to Bluetech - Emerald Epiphytes. The LEs handle the bass really well for this track, nice and tight with a good plump-sounding punch, and the treble accents those little electronic tweaky and shimmery sounds really well.

Moving on to Dream Theater...sometimes I forget how well these handle metal.

 

I am still pissed about the huge price drop on the generic version of these, but...they are also still awesome ^_^

BH Photo is selling them at $249. Doesn't seem like a price drop! Have you heard what they will actually hit the street at?

Really? The Beyer rep I spoke to said they would retail between $150 and $200...maybe he was wrong?

I wonder if the $249 was just while they were out of stock.

Thanks. Found the LEs for $200 brand new. Think I'll go for those instead. Having a nifty "Limited Edition" stamped on the cups is worth ten bucks to me  :)
