I just got these after listening to a pair my friend had. I've been listening to Sennheiser HD-545's for about 20 years and have come close to replacing them a couple of times with Beyerdynamic T1's, Sennheiser HD-650's, Grado sr225i, and such. But in the end I ended up going back the 545's. And Believe me I've tried for years to see if I could find that next level of audio bliss. T1's modded can do the trick I'll admit. But for the price and the time it takes to get it right and also the fact that they are not portable I gave up on them. Then the other Day just by chance at work a friend of mine brought the DT 770 Pro 250ohm's. And me being the curious person that I am I asked if I could listen to them. Luckily I had my Netbook with me that has all my music on it so I got the opportunity to listened to a couple of songs. And was very impressed.
Long story short. After thinking about it for about two seconds I went on Amazon and ordered me a pair. I paid $164 with shipping. And am listening to them now. My music sounds amazing and I'm really happy with the sound of these headphones. It just goes to show that you don't need to spend a lot for good sound.
Now after a week of break-in I have definitely heard the change in the highs as they have smoothed out a bit. So remember let your phones break-in before critical listening. So far I haven't noticed that high frequency peak that the T1's have. The T1's had me modding them as soon as I got them (after burn in of course). But there is definately more detail compared to the DT 880 600ohm which I owned for a while but felt were too muddy. I'm also noticing how good these are with all types of music. Especially with Rock and Classical. I also like that the bass is well balanced not too strong but not too weak. I would say the bass is on par with the T1's.
So I was hoping any other fans out there will share DT 770 Pro 250ohm stories here.
