Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250 ohm

These headphones are something else. Dynamic driver, closed back, and full of character. Running over the headphone, you will find some weird things. First, $150 is what I paid and got a ATTACHED cable. Really? V-Moda, Sony, Shure, hell even Aliexpress knock offs come with detachable cables. So, I obviously mod-ed the cable first thing. I made it short, 3.5 male, hanging out like a pig tail. I use them with a Fiio BTR3 and now they are "Bluetooth". The driver shell is plastic, supported by a metal length adjust, to more plastic on the headband. While the head band cover is soft and leather, this is to hide and manage the cable running from the right cup to the left. The right cup input is soldered to the left cup, then exits as a three cable down to the standard ATTACHED 3.5 cable. In 10 mintues and $5 more I made it detachable. Enough about that.

I am a mid forward guy. This is why I love my Sendy Aivas, nice bass presence but mids are clear and forward. The 770 pro is not, its more low mid and mid bass foward. Low bass testing sounded overpowered and slightly muddled. Kind of like looking at a painting through a water bottle from 10 feet, you can tell the painting is a naked lady but the details are hard to see. The bass overpowered the highs at first, and it killed my interest. I put down the headphones and left them running overnight on a jazz playlist. When I came back after 20 hours, the headphones sounded better. The highs didn't sink when the bass was strong, great for EDM. When the highs sink because of a over present bass, orchestral and jazz performances become dulled out which kills my interest as this is how I test headphones. If you are a bass head, these are your headphones. If you want a headphone that is crystal clear in the highs at $150, look somewhere else. After a "burn in" or what I call "break in" period, either my ears or the driver did what they were supposed to do. Keep that in mind. I would say these headphones are for Rock, metal, EDM, hip-hop/rap, bass heavy music.


At the price point of $150 for headphones, there are some amazing headphones. Beyerdynamic makes three, closed semi and open back. Fostex T50rp are my next test, then Sennheiser 58x Jubilee and maybe the 589. I do think the DT700 pro are a good buy, worth the cost. But I want to see the competition before I say that they beat Fostex and Sennheiser. Keep an eye out for the $150 round up coming this summer.


PS: the reason I chose the 770 over any other of the Beyerdynamics is because of the picture below. I trust Sir Paul McCartney and his ears. If he likes them, I thought I would too.
