I need comments on the BERYER DT 770 PRO-80 - Page 3

post #31 of 260
These sound better when the pads get broke in. When they are new the pads are a bit firm and they sound a little thin. As the pads soften up they really start to thump. Im glad i got mine

The DT770 has monster bass, with more power behind it than any other headphones I've heard (only the Shure E5 competes). The HD25 has very nice tight fast bass, that I might describe as more accurate. It doesn't go quite as deep as the DT770 (I stopped hearing bass at 15 Hz instead of 9 for the DT770), but it goes amazingly deep for such small cans. The HD25 is a bit brighter than the DT770/80 less bright than the DT770/250. The mids of the HD25 are quite forward and in your face, whereas the DT770's are a bit warmer, and not quite as forceful.

I think they are both great cans, albeit for different purposes.

Can you comment on which one (250 ohm or 80 ohm) would be brighter than the Senn HD-650's?

Both are, the 80 noticeably so, the 250 screamingly so. I find the 250 to be too bright under most circumstances, whereas the 80 strikes me as a tad brighter than neutral.

HI: How are you? I didn't sell the 595 for the 770-80. I sold the 595 because I just was tired of it. The 595 are great headphones but I just got tired with something about it. I now know what that is. I bought the beyer pro 770-80 because of a lot of research on them and now can hear why I got tired of the 595. Lack of energy and bass. I didn't plan on buying any new headphones but if there was something that was a lot different than all the many many other headphones that I have bought I thought why not try them out. The pro 770-80 has the most energy and bass than any other headphone that I have ever heard. The highs are full with a great mid range and great sound stage. The bass is just great and tight and gives the whole sound a very fullness that revels my home speakers. The cerwin vega 10" 3 way towers. I have nothing bad to say about the 595 and think they are great headphones. The beyer pro 770-80 are just way different animals. Ah headphones. LOL.
Hey Lou, that's funny because I sold my 595s because I wanted more bass as well (the deep flavour). I was actually considering purchasing some 770s to use with my 595s, but decided to sell them and go for a 650 w/cable upgrade (haven't decided yet) instead because I enjoy the Sennheiser house sound and open-back design. So far I am a little over 100 hours and the bass is deep and powerful through my Gilmore Lite. I expect it to get even better with further burn-in, addition of the custom PSU, PS Audio power cord, and upgrade cable. The HD 25-1s are definitely slammin' as well. I would still like to try out a pair of those 770-80s on this amp!

My next set of headphones are going to be either the Beyer DT770/80ohm, or the Shure E5's. The only concern I have about the bass of the 770 is that while I'm sure it's nice to hear and feel your head rattle, I'm thinking that the amount and type of bass leans more on the side of slightly over-exaggerated bass that is definitely to the extreme. I just wonder if this will get to me over time? I like bass a lot and I am somewhat of a bass-head, but if it's going to be too much, I might not like it. My idea of the perfect amount and type of bass is with the Sennheiser HD650, which goes incredibly deep, doesn't over-exaggerate, doesn't have too much of it, and doesn't take it to the extreme.

You said the only headphone that compares to the deep, impactful bass of the DT770 is the Shure E5. I was surprised to hear this as I didn't know that. I've heard the E5's before, but it wasn't for very long. However, what I did hear, I liked very much. With all that I said above in mind, and considering my said system, what do you (and others as well) think would be the best of these two phones for me??? Thanx in advance for the help and I hope I'm not intruding on this thread.

The DT770's bass is uber-impactful and extended, but with a tad of bloat to it, no matter the ohmage (I only like the 80's the rest have mids too scooped out). By comparison, the HD650 lacks the bloat, but begins to roll-off at the bottom, whereas the DT770 goes straignt down into the depths. The E5 combines the best of both worlds, IMO, the killer impact and lack or roll-off as well as the lack of bloat.

If you like the HD650 as much as you say, the E5 is what you need. To me they don't sound that different than the HD650. The soundstage is not much smaller, and the placement feels quite similar. Overall tonal balance is very similar, save the E5's treble roll-off, which is the only immediately notceable difference between the two. I don't think the E5's mids quite match the naturality of the Senns, though, but how many cans do. The E5's are fun musical, rockin-out cans beyond all else, quite the opposite of the Etys, as has been stated so many times in the path.

Headroom sells the DT 770 Pro (no mention of ohmage), but they don't have a frequency response graph for it (closest they have is the DT 990). It'd be interesting to see how it compares to the HD 650, and how the versions of differing ohmage compare to each other.

Thank you ID very much for your help. That is exactly what I needed to hear! I somehow knew that the Shures would be more up my alley and more similar to the HD650's. Does anyone else have any other opinions on the matter of comparing these two phones (particularly in the bass regions)??? If so, I would certainly like to get more views on the subject.

Ltucci [or anyone who can answer],

WHat is the headband design like? I had read it was similar to the "Pro" headband on the 250 ohm model (which I found a bit too small) but I also read it has even more clamping force. Is this true?

Cheers

HI: I never saw the 250 version. The headband on the 770-80 is just right for my small head and very comfortable. The clamping is a good fit but not overly tight for me. I think it is rated at 3.5 N. The energy is just amazing. Last night I went Thur many of my minidisc with a lot of different music types and at times like with FLEET WOOD MAC The DANCE I wanted to get up and start dancing like I use to do when I was a hippie. Then with other music I just wanted to start singing along with the music. These 770-80 should come with a warning. High energy headphones with awesome bass beware. The Energy will go Thur your ears into your being and could cause you to become full of energy and want to get up and dance. LOL

HI: I didn't see them there either. I just knew that you could bargain with guitar center.
