Been through a few phones over my 30 years recording, so after using AKGs 240s fortracking, I found mixes done with them were not good. SO, I bought some Audio Technica ah-50s. Much better and accurate than the akgs. That being said, after using some Beyer DT 770 at a friend's studio and hearing detai I missed with the ATH M-50 ATs, I had to spring for the [$]. Beyers. They are worth the extra coin for critical mixing.I don't use speakers to record or mix at home because of the noise. I do have older Yamaha NS 10m and Tanoy NFM 8s but I feel good about phones and my mixes seem to hold up in the car and other systems with the Beyers, or the ATs for that matter, Screw the guys that say you can't mix on phones.

I've had these headphones for 6 months now. I love(d) them to death. I babied these as I do with all my equipment. One day in the studio I was listening through a signal processor, plugged the headphones into my computer and my right channel was gone. I spent about a half hour trouble shooting everything in the signal path before checking the headphones. I have an electronics background so I decided to open them up, hoping it was only a bad solder joint or a partial short somewhere. It wasn't, the speaker was the issue. After checking with an oscilloscope I found that it was still reproducing sound, just severely attenuated. These are junk now for anyone who isn't deaf in their right ear. It's a shame because the sound and comfort is incredible. Buy the extended warranty if you still want to buy these. That way when to die on you, you can purchase something else and only be out $20.

Another Defective DT770 Out $200!

By GtrSmitty

from Austin, TX

Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO-80 Closed Studio Headphones:

Either buy something else or buy the warranty. The right speaker is dead. This is the second pair of DT770s that has had this exact same problem (the right ear speaker is over attenuated and has static, then dies eventually). Apparently there are others out there that have had the same problem. It doesn't matter how good these sound if one day they are broken. Buyer beware!

Really like these headphones

By IceFire Music

from Kansas City

See all my reviews

Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO-80 Closed Studio Headphones:

Many reviewers have mentioned the comfort--excellent. Many reviewers have either noted or denited the extended bass response. I'll be honest: I'm not sure if they're flat or not--but they sure *sound* great. If they are bass-heavy (and consequently your mixes are bass-light) then, like with any reference monitors, you need to learn to "adjust" accordingly. Don't use them exclusively to mix (use reference monitors too) but use them for "nuance"--things that people who wear headphones to *listen* to music will hear that people who only listen to music over restaurant/elevator speakers will *never* hear anyway. The two pairs (80 ohm) I've used in my project studio for the last 3 years have never given me *any* mechanical problems.

Great sound, poor durability

By MixMan_Fresh

from Dayton, OH

See all my reviews

Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO-80 Closed Studio Headphones:

I purchased these headphones after a good amount of time spent on quality vs price comparisons. Reading enough reviews and seeing how much good headphones can REALLY cost, I bought these. Initially, I was completely blown away. The clarity is perfect, frequency response is near-flat, and the comfort level is outta this world. However, these circumaurals won't last. After 2 months (not even) of use, a short appeared in BOTH the 1/8" jack AND the internal split of the wires to the right phone. Also, an audible distortion of the woofer on the left side appeared. Don't buy these headphones unless you love going through the hassle of returning them for a new pair.

Great sounding headphones. They sound good without masking or hiding the true content of the recording. I plan on using these as a "reference" to what I'm mixing along with DT250 -80ohm and reference speakers.

Review of DT 770 Pro-80's

By DJ Culver

from Wisconsin

Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO-80 Closed Studio Headphones:

Although the size and weight can be a little cumbersome, the clarity of the sound priduced is excellent. They tend to get "heavy" on the ears after prolonged use.
I own a pair of Bose QE-15 as well as these headphones. These are the best closed studio's I have owned. The sound is studio perfect and has almost the clarity of my Bose QT-15 noise cancelling headphones, but with closed headphone ability. I would not hesitate to reccommend these to any studio geek who wants to "hear" what he plays
The DT 779 Pro-80 Closed studio headphones are a steal for the price offered!

      Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO-80 Closed Studio Headphones:

      One of the best close can at the lower bracket pricing. The DT770 is very comfortable. I like the tight fit it has as I feel it's secure but at the same time the pads and fits are one of the best in comfort. It can be worn for hours without having to adjust or worries about stickiness and sweat inducing.
      As for sounds, good bass that goes deep without being too muddy or cover up the rest of sound frequencies. The mids are good and can be push up a little bit more up front, but nothing that is really lacking. The highs are present without being analytical. I mainly use these as my movie cans or for travel. The only thing I wish it had is for the cable to be removable as I don't really need a 10' cable. I never understand 10' cable as I think 5-6' is plenty for avg. consumer. I own many more expensive headphones all the way up to the hd800,T1, HE500 etc. and these are staying in my stable. I want to comment one more time about the comfort, these are more comfortable than my DT880! The headband is more comfortable, fit is tighter/more secure, and the pads are thicker.

      Best Uses

      • Listening at home

      Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO-80 Closed Studio Headphones:

      Have been a headphone fanatic since my first exposure to a pair of on-ear Senns some 30 years ago. I've had all types of headphones since then, but still keep reaching for the over-ear models.

      The earpads on these headphones are cavernous, huge and deep. I find that very comfortable.

      These phones also have deep bass that my ATH-M50 and VSIO HP-50 do not have. They won't add bass, but if it's there you will hear it. I do not have a studio, or a mixer, just frequent at home listening, so I can't say either way if they are suitable for "pro" listening. But they excel for me, especially because of the excellent low-frequency response.

      I purchased the phones used from Musician's Friend, and within a few months noticed a defect in the right driver. I called Musinian's Friend, and even thugh the used warranty was expired Musician's Friend took care of me by exchanging them at no cost. I also bought the extended warranty, something I don't usually do. But I'm glad i did, after reading from others that they too have had similar problems.

      The bottom line is these phones ROCK when listening to blues, jazz, classic rock. Musician's Friend took care of me after the warranty was expired. They are now first on my list when I start looking for home audio equipment. Excellent product, outstanding customer service, what's not to like?

      Thanks to Musician's Friend.

      Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO-80 Closed Studio Headphones:

      (I am an electronics and AV professional BTW) These are amazing headphones. Extremely comfortable, excellent acoustical isolation, very smooth response, pleasant sounding. As with most headphones, the response will change slightly with age, partly due to the ear cushions becoming a bit less springy and more compressed and very slightly as a result of mechanical wear of the plastic diaphragms over many years. I would recommend these headphones, definitely. The only possible disadvantage I see is, at 80 Ohms, the impedance is high enough that many headphone amplifiers will not have sufficient voltage swing to produce high volumes. The average media player, for example, may not deliver enough power at 80 Ohms for some listeners. Hopefully, this will not be an issue for people with young ears. :-) Enjoy!

      I have been the studio for at least 10 hours week for the past 10 months (Working on different projects and what not, since I'm going to school to be an Audio Engineer.) Let me tell you, I can easily and comfortably wear these headphones for hours. The frequency response is amazing and it all sounds crystal clear whether it is the low end of a bass guitar and the highs of a drum cymbal. These headphones are a must buy for anyone serious about their audio

      Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO-80 Closed Studio Headphones:

      I owned an older pair of DT990s but due to age as well as being 250 Ohm they just didn't sound that good especially when trying to use them with my MacBook Pro or iPhone. I ordered these to try them out because they were 80 Ohm cans as well as due to all the great reviews.Well, I plugged them in, fired up iTunes and....was totally blown away! These headpones are absolutely incredible. By far the best sounding headphones I have ever heard, especially with their ability to drive great sound and volume and deep bass even from the iPhone! Its crazy. Really crazy. I cannot recommend these headphones any higher. Buy them right now, you'll be glad you did!

      SUPERB MONITORING HEADPHONES

      By Prismshian

      from Bedfordshire, UK

      Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO-80 Closed Studio Headphones:

      Okay, first impressions, it doesn?t look like the latest AKGs, fine, they have that 'classic' German war headphone look with the plastic feel behind them. But I tell you, I've tested the Beyer DT-100s (bought & returned, highs are there mid?s are blur and lows are missing) the AKG 241s (not bad but mixes don?t translate well), and I must say, these headphones in terms of performance are a country mile in a different group. Very transparent, this would be perfect for studio monitoring, mixing I would think no problems at all haven't tried yet. Extended bass response is incredible, it feels real. Headphones are very clear, very transparent; you can pick out EVERYTHING that is going on in the mix/songs. Doesn't look like a Ferrari, but try it, you'll like the engine. Very important note, if you're like me and spend hours on audio, COMFORT is important, AKGs didn't work for me (sore ears), Beyers DT-100 (too hard clamp), at 3.5N these are ideal. Large round cushions work and are replaceable. I don?t write many reviews, but you need to know about these headphones. Don?t say I didn't tell you.

      Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO-80 Closed Studio Headphones:

      Best headphones I've ever used in the studio. These headphones reproduce bass, as others have said. It's true, and that's not a bad thing. You need to run them through a headphone amp so you can control how much low end you get. I am able to adjust them so that the sound closely matches my near-field monitors - something my old Sony headphones could never do - and I wouldn't trade them for anything.

      Incredible sound!

      By Val Sam

      from Vancouver, WA

      Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO-80 Closed Studio Headphones:

      I am in love with the sound that they produce. When I got the new pair I simply let them play some loud music to a pillow for 100 hours and then listened to them again. It made a big difference! Much better sound. So do not forget to break them in before coming to any conclusions. I listen mostly to classical SACDs, some good quality rock like Radiohead, Nick Cave. Jazz is my next thing. Classic rock sometimes: Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin. But I would assume that if there is too much bass - it is definitely your CD that is recorded by a weird sound engineer.Now, the quality is not the same as it was 10 years ago. I used to have an older model and it was built a little bit better. The picture on this website is actually a picture of an that older model. The real thing that you will get is different. Go to the Beyerdynamic website to see it. It is cheaper looking to my opinion. Sound is the same though, and that I like. What is really bugging me is that tiny wire that connects right phone to the left. It is inside of the sleeve and it is can be really close to the moving parts. It can be damaged while you are adjusting the headphones size. These metal parts are sharp and they might actually cut the wire. Make sure that you open the sleeve and re-run the wire as far away from the moving parts as possible.Another thing is the annoying popping sound that they make sometimes when you put them on. Again, these metal pieces inside of the sleeve are rubbing against the metal frame. This problem had always been there even 10 years ago. I used to work at a radio station so I had to put the headphones on and take them off about 100 times per day, so I stopped noticing these clicks. Now I listen in order to get some musical nirvana, so that problem bugs me again. But don't listen to me too much, I am a perfectionist. It is simply impossible to completely satisfy me. Get these headphones if you care about good sound. These are one of the best. I like the fact that they are made in Germany.

      Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO-80 Closed Studio Headphones:

      This pair is good for mixing but absolutely not for vocal monitoring. It compresses your vocal as if you're singing in a can. It has good isolation. Senheiser hd280 or sony 7506 are much better for vocal monitoring.

      Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO-80 Closed Studio Headphones:

      These cans are my absolute favorite studio headphones. I do a lot of home recording and prefer cans to monitors for keeping the sound levels in check in my home. I have mixed entire sessions on these and use them for tracking often. I tried the 250ohm version and sold them for another pair of the 80ohms. After trying quite a few different pairs of studio headphones I always come back to these beyers! They are super comfortable. with the velvet like liners and are extremely durable. I swear I have dropped these on the hard floor a dozen or so times and never a break! When you first get them the treble can be slightly overwhelming but that will subside once they are broken in. These do require a bit longer of a break in period then other models I have owned but afterward you are set in the studio with a serious pair of cans. I highly recommend these and honestly prefer not to use anything else. I even take them with me if I record in other studios!

      Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO-80 Closed Studio Headphones:

      I bought these headphones for listening to my jazz and classical music. They are the best headphones that I have ever listened to. Every note comes through perfectly. They are pretty spendy, but if you are serious about music then these are a must. They block out all outside noise and are very comfortable to wear. I do not know why I went so long to buy a set of headphones like these.
