dt770 premiums vs pros?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I've been looking at the 770 premiums and I think they look way better than the pros. Is there a huge sound difference between the two? The problem is I can't find anyone that is selling them but would the premiums still be worth buying? Thanks!

The difference between the Premiums and the Pros is that Beyerdynamic makes a lot more profit off the Premium versions.

So get the Dt770 Pro 250-Ohm headphones.

What sources (DAC/Amp?) are you going to be plugging the headphones into?

If its anything like the DT880s, the Premiums have higher clamping force on the head. I heard it said that this gives it better bass response. I do not know. But after a few hours I need to take them off for a break. IMO get the Pro model. You can wear them for extended periods of time, and they are significantly cheaper. I no longer think my Premium model was worth the extra money, even though it is built better than the Pro version.

Ok I'll probably get the pros but should I get the 80 or 250? My source will be an iPod nano 7th gen and I'll probably get an amp but not sure which.

If you are using an unamped source, get the 80-ohm version. But if you are strictly going to be using with a separate amp, get the 250-ohm version.

I've been looking at the ath-m50x because they have a removable cable. Which pair of headphones have better sound quality?

That depends on whether you want a shallower "V" type EQ (M50) or deeper one (DT 770).

 

Portability and comfort may also factor in.

I can tell the dt770's are more comfortable which is important to mean portability isnt huge for me. What do the different EQs mean?

This describes the sound signature delivered by the headphones.  You should Google headphone/speaker sound signatures in general and the V shaped sound signature (which means emphasized bass and treble and recessed mids).
