Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro - Limited Edition, 32 Ohms - Page 38post #556 of 5662/19/14 at 4:18pmYeah I prefer the velours by quite a bit. I wouldn't say they make the mods more forward, but they do make them less recessed somehow; maybe its just the decrease in bass bloat that makes them feel less overshadowed.

ok so just installed velour pads.
- WAY more comfortable, esp with glasses.
- I thought the bass would decrease. not really, its less boomy but has more impact. i prefer it this way.
- treble a tad brighter.
- improved/bigger soundstage
- isolation has decreased quite a bit
- leakage has increased a LOT
just initial impressions but im satisfied so far. wow.
I had tried the 250 ohm dt 770 and loved the sound but had to return it due to the insane amount of leakage. I planned on using them in the library and they just wouldn't do. I'm hoping the dt 770 with the leather pads will fix that issue, and maybe I can grab velours for home use.post #559 of 5663/1/14 at 7:29am
Yup, just got them in the mail - the 32 ohm versions prevent leakage so much better than the 250 ohm version. I don't know if this is because of the leather pads or a slightly increased clamping force or what, but I am definitely a happy camper.post #560 of 5663/1/14 at 8:04ampost #561 of 5663/3/14 at 7:06am
I believe it's the pleather pads. This is because I just got my 32ohms (non limited) the day before yesterday.
They have roughly 12hrs of run time so far and...
The pleather makes the bass boomy. The overall sound seems to be governed by the lower spectrum but leakage is little and isolation is very good (not Shure IEM good, but good enough)
The velour pads reduce the boomy-ness, but also increase the treble to the point I need to EQ down because I find it painful. (things like cymbals and very thin sounds are a bit too piercing to my ears)
I am hoping the treble, of the headphones and not my ears, will settle in time.
I love the bass response with the velour pads but the treble is way too high.
I bought this for video/sound editing and metal/electronica listening.
I would choose velour when monitoring and editing but pleather for portable and easier listening.post #562 of 5663/3/14 at 8:32ampost #563 of 5663/6/14 at 7:50pmQuote:
This thread has been GREAT. I listen to mostly rock and metal with some softer stuff mixed in. I have a FiiO E7. The 250 ohm version is about $20 cheaper right now than the 32 ohm version. I will be listening through the E7 on my laptop most of the time with some iPod listening here and there. Which version of the 770s would you recommend? Does it really matter? I was leaning towards the 32 b/c they (might?) have better rock vocals but I keep second guessing. I'm fairly certain I'll enjoy either one but I want to make sure :) I've heard the gray pads are more comfortable and the pleather ones get hot after an hour or so. If that's the case then maybe since I already have an amp I just need an iPod connector and I could get the 80 or 250.

I haven't heard the 250, only the 32 LE and 80. I think the 32 LE has noticeably more forward mids, so if vocals are big for you, the 32 LE is a good choice. However I dont think the 32 LE and the new 32 sound quite the same, despite what beyer reps have told me; someone opened up their new 32s and the internals were definitely different, as are the FR graphs. The new 32 FR graph actually looks even flatter, though, with more stability through the mids:
The new one actually looks flatter overall, albeit with peakier treble...post #565 of 5663/7/14 at 3:52pmQuote:Originally Posted by Gilly87

Thanks for the response. I'll prob just go for the 32 considering those still likely benefit from an amp anyways. I just don't want to be missing out on sound quality by going with a lower impedance. Nevertheless, I'm excited about the prospect of getting the 770s.

I've had the 770 32ohm non-limited for about a week or so. Listening to them on daily basis.
I can tell you this. They benefit more from a good DAC chip than from an AMP first and foremost (i.e. from a Dragonfly they sound really good whereas straight from laptop they don't sound like they are worth the cash)
For loudness, you shouldn't worry to begin with. I can't place the volume on my computer (with or without the Dragonfly) beyond 50% or my ears will bleed.
The same goes for my brand new Clip+ rockboxed. The little thing drives them extremely well and the sound is a real step up from what I had before (ipod classic 5th+ AGK 271mkII -Made in Austria version or SE215s and Dragonfly+AKG/SE215)
I don't think you can go wrong with either version of the DT 770 (32, LE, 80 or 250) but its worth noting that my version has ever so slightly piercing highs (not kind to my ears and I need to EQ that down)
