Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro - Limited Edition, 32 Ohms - Page 33

post #481 of 668

Are you talking about this ring? because my dt 770 pro 32ohms have them. If yours don't, I'm sure you could order some from Beyerdynamic. I do remember reading a post about someone making their own out of wood (or something similar) and actually improving the sound of their cans.

Yes,those are the rings. Do you have the LE?

Fixed my imbalance! Opened up the cups just to look and one of the drivers was out of place; a little pressure and they're both nice and tight and sound identical :-)

No, mine is the standard 32ohm version. As far as I knew, the LE and standard version were the same. I guess not.

Good to know if I ever get the same problem :)

Interesting. When did you buy them? Recently or before the LE came out?

Yeah its weird, it was just kinda loose; popped right back into place and now the bass is back :-)

Bought them a few weeks ago. I actually ordered the LE but received the standard version instead. Was a bit annoyed at first but from everything I'd read, they were the same set of cans so I kept them. Seems like there are actually some differences though.

Apparently...

 

Beyerdynamic really needs to get their **** together; I called asking about this and their rep said the headphones were identical.

 

Ah well. I enjoy the sound of mine; as long as you like yours, thats what really matters, right? :cool:

For anyone who is into electronic music, been listening to Shaman's Dream on my LEs lately. It has this really cool tribal feel to it, with conga drums and wooden flutes and stuff, but they also use electric guitars and more modern beats...pretty cool.

I'm gonna buy these for mostly portable use, coming from the v moda m100.

Question, should I get the 32 over the 80? The shorter cord, leather pads, and lower impedance should be better for portable uses.

What amp should I get? I'm looking at the e07k so I can amp from my iPod classic and also use the DAC when using my laptop. Is it a good match? Should I get the e17 instead?

The 32 will definitely be better for portable use. My friend has the 80 and they sound pretty dull from a portable source; my 32s sound pretty nice even just from my Nexus 5 headphone jack, but they do require some extra juice to really fill out the bass.

I use mine with the HRT microstreamer, which is awesome because it is slightly bass light which tames a bit of the DT770's boominess. The combo is great for my taste; its a bit on the bright side, but very rarely sibilant, with nice full but not too boomy/overly impactful bass and a very neutral midrange.

The cans are bright as is the cirrus logic in Mt iPod classic so I'd rather pair it with a warmer amp like the e07k.

I read your dt770 review, how would you compare to the v moda m100 or ath m50 if you've heard them.

Niiiice :cool: Yeah Alex Grey is amazing, I love his work. Theologue is one of my favorites, I also really like Gaia. The amount of care and detail in his paintings is just incredible.

 

Gotta love Ektoplazm, wish they had an app...that, plus Spotify and Bandcamp = all of my music needs, lol.

 

Digging Goa Overdose, this is surprisingly chill for Goa; I'm used to Goa Gil who just wants to obliterate you :P

 

Ever heard the album Cosmic Horses? Its a compilation a former friend of mine found on Ektoplazm, some really interesting, darker stuff.

I haven't heard the M100 except for briefly so I won't comment at length, but I'll say the M100 sounded warmer and didn't have the neutral tone in the midrange that I like in my DT770s. I think it's definitely a more consumer-oriented sound signature, kind of like a Koss PortaPro on steroids.

 

vs the M50, the DT770 LE is clearly the superior headphone IMO. The M50 reaches more of its potential with less juice, and is generally better suited for portable use, but overall it has a much flatter soundstage, more bloated midbass, a less neutral tone, more recessed mids, and less extended treble to my ears. I think the DT770 is a step up in just about every way unless you're a basshead and require portability. To me, the M50 gets more credit than it's due sound-wise; I'd take the HD25 over M50 for portable use any day of the week, and DT770 for home use for sure, although I guess if you want one headphone for both purposes and don't mind the extra bulk, it's a good do-it-all kind of headphone. I think that's a big part of why it gets recommended around here as a one-size-fits-all solution: it has a very versatile build and form factor, and strikes a good balance between consumer and audiophile/professional oriented sound, whereas the DT770 is very clearly geared towards audiophiles and professionals.

 

On sound alone, though, DT770 every time.
