Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro - Limited Edition, 32 Ohms - Page 45

post #661 of 667

Just make sure you don't pair it with amp/dac that's too bassy. Through my Fiio E18 Kunlun, the bass on the dt 770 is really boomy and might turn you off. Through something a little cleaner, like my modi 2u and asgard 2, the bass through the dt 770 is super tight but still satisfying. For a 32 ohm headphone, the dt 770 is really responsive to the other equipment in your chain.

Actually I'd probably just be using it with my FIIO X3 II which has a pretty clean sound and from my experience doesn't accentuate the bass at all.

Just picked up my first pair, what options do I have for replacing the padding with something less.... plastic?

I had read that the 32's were limited edition and picked up a pair. I love them. Before getting the 32-ohm version, I mistakenly got the 250ohm version because I didn't know that the dt770 wasn't a single product but a line. I have recently found after a lot of use, that my 250-ohm pair is muddy in the midtones and so I started using my 32ohm pair for studio work and movie viewing as well as my digital piano and for field recording. Today I picked up a pair of the 80-ohm variety and am still breaking them in. They don't seem to have the muddiness problem of the 250's. From what I've read, they need some breaking in before they really hit their stride.

Now having sampled the complete ohm range, I highly recommend the 32ohm headphones and I bought mine off of Amazon. They sell all 3 of the ohm ratings. I guess Beyerdynamic gave up on them being limited edition in the US market. I use the 32's with my iPhone and iPad as well and both devices drive them nicely but they also sound great driven by my focusrite Scarlet 2i4 usb audio box for use with Pro Tools. Great brand. Great Build quality and every part is replacable.

Price the 80-ohm version is the cheapest at $132.24 on Amazon right now. The 32-ohms are $140.67 and the 250-ohms are $147.48.

My only complaints were the lack of the comfy velour covers which I bought a pair of and took off the original pleather ear pads, and the short cord which is roughly half the length of the 80 ohm version and the 250 ohm version(though the 250's have a coiled cord so it's hard to judge of far they'll stretch. With the short cord, I kept finding myself unable to move from my chair when hooked up to my focusrite, so I got myself a phono extender. I am happy I got the 80's to replace the 250's,but I'm definitely keeping the 32's and plan to use them when I need more volume etc.

Guys.... I have a dt770 pro 80ohm but i would like to have a shorter cable..... What would i win/loose if i switched from a 80 ohm dt770 to a 32? I dont looooove my dt770s because i uasually prefer a more punchy and exciting sound such as on the hd25 or m50x.... Is the 32 ohm dt770 any more exciting, punchy than the 80ohm one?

What types of music do you usually listen to? The 32ohm is closer sounding to the 80 or 250ohm version? Wich of all 3 has more punch on the bass (better for edm) and wich do you think is better overall?

 

Cheers
