Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro - Limited Edition, 32 Ohms - Page 34

post #496 of 668
Yeah I owned both the m50 and m100 but got rid of em. The m50 I found boring, lacked subbass, had harsh treble. The m100 had too much midbass and was uncomfortable.
post #497 of 668

Hmmm...the M50 treble is harder than the DT770, so you will probably be pleased there, but it is still accentuated. If you preferred the treble of the M100 to the M50 overall, you may want to look at the COP instead of the LE; I hear they are very similar but the COP isn't as bright. It also has a replaceable cable, which I envy sometimes -_-

Noo the m100 treble is too rolled off. I auditioned the dt770 32 and COP and the DT sweeper the floor. I can always adjust the bass and treble with the amp.

Hi! Been looking at these for a while, but I would assume that given how there were only made 4000 of the LEs, one should not expect to find any stores that still have them in stock?

Anyway, I've found an online store in the country I'm from that seems to have these - or they just copied the description of the LEs and also only have pictures of the LE on the product page (I'll send an email asking about this).

It doesn't matter to me as they should be identical aside from the branding on the cups - as far as I've read - but the last few pages of this thread has made me think otherwise. So are they identical or not?

I'm also thinking about grabbing a pair of velour ear pads for them as well as this carrying bag (I think the headphones would fit in this?). Does anyone have experience with how the sound responds to the velour pads?

I'd like to just order everything from thomann as this would make it a little cheaper in the end, but thomann just has the regular 32 ohm version - but if they're identical, I guess it should be alright.

Anyone?

Ah ok, didn't know you'd already heard the DT770 32. Well, if you like it, I say go for it :) I love mine. My girlfriend bought them for me as a birthday present a year ago and I've owned the D2000, HD5558, HD598, and HD650 since then, but nothing replaces my LEs; the HD650s were better in some ways, but not worth well over double the cost (about $200 more for the cans themselves, plus $200 more for a decent amp) and only made me feel like I wanted to keep upgrading my gear more and more.

 

The DT770 LE with my microstreamer is an awesome combo and I don't find myself nitpicking its flaws or wanting more the way I did with the 650s; sure, it's not as open and natural sounding, but its also not nearly as picky about gear, has better treble presence, and sounds more neutral to my ears. I'm sure if I had wads of cash I'd love to try different amp combos, tube rolling, etc, but I don't, and even if I did, I'd rather spend it in other places or give it to charity or something...spending that much money on headphones just seems overly self-indulgent to me, unless you're REALLY making a big difference in the world somewhere else in your life.

 

...besides, if I was going to spend more than a few hundred bucks on headphones, I'd say screw it and get something really nice like the T90 or HD700.

I use the velours on mine, with a bit of toilette paper stuffed inside the pads to put some space between my ears and the drivers. The velours on their own eliminate a smidge of the extra boominess, and this small, ultra-easy mod does the last little bit that makes them just right for me. They were too bassy for me with the stock leathers, and got sweaty while gaming. I will say that the velours isolate less, but I use mine at home so it's worth it. For using them on the go, I'd suggest the leathers with the stuffing mod.

Anyone else brave enough to open their LE'S up yet? Very curious to know if the black ring behind the driver is absent on others as well and what purpose it serves in other dt770 models.
post #504 of 668

Lol I kinda like the look of the COPs, personal preference I guess :P And yeah it's a bit more of a real basshead can than the DT770; the DTs definitely sound more "hifi." Love that extra treble sparkle ^_^ And the subbass on the DT770s is so great. Once you get them, if you like EDM, check out Out of Mind by Distance; you will feel that 40hz synth bass in your balls man XD

I don't have it on my LEs either.

AW: Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro - Limited Edition, 32 Ohms

Hi I bought my DT770 last week. I bought the new Philips L2 before. Send them back after a week. I wanted a upgrade from my Audio-Technica M50. For the price from 180€ the Philips sound like crap. The M50 cost 99 € and are way better. But than came the DT770 SE. smily_headphones1.gif They are far better and cost only 150€ with extra velour pads.
Only bad thing they suck for outside. Too big. So I stay there with my Sennheiser IE8. By the way I tried the new Sennheiser Momentum over ears. They cost 200 € but they was not the upgrade for me from the M50. I stay with my DT770 biggrin.gif

DT770 ftw! :-)


BTW, anyone who is interested in the DT770 but doesn't want all the bass should look into the DT660. I find it to be a more mid-forward, less bassy version of the DT770 and I actually really enjoyed it the few times I've heard it. Looks cool, too, and it sounds a bit like a full-size ety HF5.

Thanks for replying!

 

I will probably get the velour pads too just to experiment a little.

 

I'm still wondering about the difference between the LE and standard edition. I'm not finding anything conclusive that would suggest that they are not the same.

 

Is the cable length the same 1.6 m (5.2 feet) as the limited edition? Could someone with the standard edition weigh in?

 

Thanks

No problem :-)

The one thing I've seen is, as shown in the last couple of pages, the new 32 ohm non-LE has the black ring around the driver, while the LE does not. Not sure what that would do for sound, but it is a difference.
