Beyerdynamic DT 770/80 vs Custom One Pro's Quick Comparison - Page 3

According to another user none of the beyers actually have recessed mids. Just that everything else kind of overpowers it.

 

I'm hoping to try to get a DT770 32ohm or the normal 250ohm. And the DT770 Pro / DT990 Pro as a last resort

Thank you to the OP for comparing the COP with the DT770 and DT880s, cans I've had experience with. I actually was thinking of buying the COP due to its portability but if the sound is worse than the DT770 or DT880 (in relative terms, of course) then it's probably best if I don't buy it. I do feel that the COP did have a good idea behind it though.

That is the same thing. When bass and treble are stronger, recessed mids is the outcome. No such thing as no mid recession if bass and treble are strong. A headphone is either balanced, or something will be recessed. All the Beyers have sparkly treble, and a tilt towards bass, so mids are recessed. The 880 is the least recessed, but it still is.

The concept is a great idea, but sad to say they don't live up to their own older brothers... Which is a major shame, because they had the making of something really special. Great looking, great price, great options, removable cables, easy to run, and comfortable to wear. They had it all except for the one thing that matters most... Now to be fair to the COP's if I never would have tried the 770's I would have never cared and yes the highs and sloppy lows would have bug me a little I still would have been ok with them as my portable pair, but then I listened to the 770's and it was all down hill from there. I think the price point will settle in around the $150-$165 range and for the money you can't find a better package.

The 770 Pro 80 is mostly sub bass, whereas the Pro 900 is almost all mid bass. They're quite different sounding. The 770 pro 80's sub bass tends to be omni present, whereas the Pro 900's mid bass hits hard but quickly.

Yes, the DT990 Pro is literally like an open Pro 900. Not even the Pro 2900 has as much bass as the DT990 pro, though the Pro 900 still has more. The DT990 Pro and Pro 900 are brothers from another mother, pretty much.

Just bought an E11 for when im in the car/college and any other outside applications for the Monster turbine Gold and DT 990s, i wonder how itl sound!

 

It'll sound great!! That's what I had before I stupidly sold my 990's which I will be getting back soon enough :) The E11 is a very nice (cheap) way to power the the 990's. I've used them with a bunch of different great cans including my new/used D5000's (Holy mother, these things are insanely good) and all but the 770's like the e11. Not sure what that was all about but they did NOT get along. I'm still thinking about moving up in the world but not really sure where to go. Once I have more room in my Man-Cave a Schiit Asgard will definitely be on the menu but until then I still looking for a good portable that can out preform the e11. What do you guys use besides the e11? Trying to stay around $100 or maybe more if its a great deal. I know more money doesn't always mean the best but I am willing to spend a little more if there is that much of a difference.

Haven't had the chance to hear the 2900's as of yet but comparing the two the 900's are beast but I wasn't a fan. They have sooooo much bass and yes that's awesome but I just didn't like the sound signature on them. I actually preferred my 990 Pro's. They were lighter, more comfortable, and still hit as hard as I needed them to. Now of course I'm sure my comments will get me kicked out of some forums for saying that I liked the 990 better but it is what it is. Now my new monsters are the D5000's from Denon... Ok, the first note that hit I was floored and once I picked my self back up the experience didn't stop it, it kept going. The bass is epic is these beast but thats just the first thing you notice, what gets you is the overall presentation and how wide these sound for closed cans. Next to the HE-400's these are the best headphones I've ever heard and the D7000 are supposed to be better?!?! I have no idea how but I can't wait to find out :) I may start hunting for the rest of the family. Already owned the D1100's so the D2000's and D7000's may be on my short list of cans to start hunting for. The 2000's can be had pretty easily on eBay for like $270 and under but the D7000's are few and far between so its going to be fun hunting those bad boys down

I prefer the 990s over the Pro 900 myself. Just stating that the Pro 900 is the closest closed alternative to the 990s that I have heard.

The D7000 is my fave all time headphone, followed by the HE400 (didn't have as much as bass as I would have liked), then the HE-4 (though the HE-4 is more like a super DT880, and not as musical as the HE-400).

Overall though, the 990 is my stable favorite in terms of having most of the things I want in a headphone. Bass+open (a rarity), clarity, comfort, velours.

If it wasn't for my distaste for any non-velour padding, I'd have kept the D7000 and call it a day.

I wasn't too thrilled with the Pro 2900s. I expected a lot better. The Pro 900 was okay, but with glaring faults. I'm no fan of S Logic.

Heard a ton about it, but is it just a bass boast or does it actually help power the headphones?? Does it actually have a sound signature or does it just eq the bass. I've been very curious about them so an impression from an owner would be great

The S logic is def hit or miss and depending on the cans. For example I like the S-logic but not the S-logic plus in the 900's. I'm still wanting to get my hands on the Edition 8's but those have gotten great reviews and horrible reviews as well. Ultrasone's are good cans for the money but the Edition 8 at $1k is a bit much and I don't know if they are worth the price.

For crying out loud!! They did it again!!

Beyer is releasing another version of the DT770 but this is the 32ohm LE 88. This is a great review that gives a lot of the specifics of the new cans from Beyer. Short version they think it has a "better" sound stage than the 770/80's which I find incredibly hard to believe but they said it has, the highs are a lof smoother and have a little less bite than the typical Beyers and the lows are just as thick as ever. Price is about $249 and I don't know about you guys but I'm kinda excited lol, This is exactly what we've all been talking about a more portable pair of the 770's with slight improvements vs a new line that focuses on being more commercial. Should be fun

Uh-oh. And here I was considering trying out the DT770/80s to compare with the Custom One Pros I just got. blink.gif  That price should keep me away from the special editions though.

Yah, they're definitely not cheap but the thought of having the 770's at 32ohm is very very tempting. Plus they look kinda sexy so I may have to check them out

Same ugly fiberglass looking cups. No thanks.
