    I got the 80 ohm model and it blows me away. You can use with anything, but a phone will just not get as loud. The best headphone I have were bose QC35II and DT770pro sound way better. Extremely more detailed in comparison. Base and treble is noticeable better or just there – effortlessly. The mids are not so muddy but also a bit more relax to give the rest of the frequency spectrum some room to shine.
    Comfort as amazing: The velour ear cushions are great. The head band is super comfy and the clamping force is just right. Weight is fine, but they are not feather light. And they are not the most flexible ones.
    Build quality and construction is outstanding. The cable is thick, but still quite flexible. Unfortunately it is not detachable. So they are not really meant for walking around, but indoor use, which is fine.
    I give 2 stars for Noise cancellation, because the noise isolation is quite good, also actual they have no active noise cancellation. And finally of course they are fantastic for gaming, given that they are sooo detailed.

    These are bar none the best headphones you can buy for this sort of money and a lot more IMO. I have two pairs of them one with the 250ohm coiled lead and the other with a 80ohms and straight lead for use in different settings – the latter I’ve owned for about 7 years. I have also got a pair of the DT1990 pro models which are significantly more expensive, and I would argue not as good certainly not value for money wise, and I would also say they are not better sound quality either for listening or using as a reference monitor, but it is useful to have more than one sound signature when testing your mixes. I also owned for a short time a pair of Focal Clear headphones which are widely touted to be about as good as it gets from an audiophile perspective without spending an inordinate amount of money, and again I would say that the DT770 are a better unit both in terms of robust design and quality, I also much prefer the sound signature. So I sent back the Clear cans within a week. But I guess as with everything, it is subjective. I would highly recommend these cans though, excellent value for money.

    If you are looking for some professional headphones for work or long-term use you have probably read loads of reviews. There DT770’s come out well/top again and again. I am no headphone expert but have a couple of pairs of Sennheiser headphones and the latest noise cancelling BOSE units, all of which are great. However, for long term use (long hours of audio editing) these DT770s are my new favourites. They are fabulously comfortable, with no ear pressure at all and don’t feel hot on the head. Even though they are not dynamic noise cancelling units that cut out background noise really well. Initially I thought that the default (Windows 10) levels might be a bit low on these 80 Ohm units, but the sound quality and acuity is so high that in practice it is perfect. Really, I could not recommend these highly enough – a well designed and beautifully engineered product.

    Was after a new pair of closed backs to go along side my open back Sennheiser HD6xx cans and decided to go for these. Running the 250ohm model on the ifi ZEN DAC v2 and it powers it no problem, as to be expected.

    Out of the box they sound outstanding if only a little TOO prominent on the bass for my taste, after using oratory’s preset on Equaliser APO, these sound outstanding. Really happy.

    Punchy, clear audio

    I love these headphones so much, the audio quality is incredible, they feel great on my ears, not too tight, not too loose and they’re pretty well built over all……except mine keep dying. I’ve owned an 80ohm and two 250ohm sets, attached image of my box collection lol

    I don’t use anything crazy, I have a Scarlett Solo audio interface and a Magni Heresy headphone amp both of which keep their volumes at 50%, dead center, never gets touched. Apart from my latest pair which I had lowered the volumes to 40% but they still died. They weren’t loud, in fact they were quiet, yet for some reason the right driver just keeps dying.

    I keep buying new pairs because I’d rather buy a new pair than jump through a billion hoops for warranty which I don’t even know if they’re covered.

    Regardless these are amazing headphones, my latest pair recently died but instead of buying a new pair I just bought a new replacement driver and installed it, was super easy, will do that from now on.
    Thank you Beyerdynamic for making these headphones so user serviceable!

    Please don’t let my experiences dissuade you from buying these headphones, they’re definitely worth it, perhaps either my amp or interface is faulty, who knows, but I love these headphones, I won’t buy anything else, I just wish they didn’t die on me so often.

    The DT770 Pro 80ohm.

    I mostly use these via a Focusrite audio interface.

    The detail in the sound from this is amazing, it really brings out elements I’ve not heard before in recordings. The sound overall is silky, well defined and with great bass.

    The headphone cups are large with velour covers which makes them very comfortable and means that my relatively large ears don’t have any contact with with the cups.

    The only criticism I have is the non-removable cord.

    Amazing sounding headphones with outstanding base superb mid range and excellent treble. I’m running this on an Asus Rog z170 motherboard with the Supreme FX 2015 sound processor. Very loud, but does get a bit muddled when there are a lot of different sound going on at the same time.
    I use this for gaming but also for music which is typically around the 320kbps sound quality. I suspect that any muddling in complex sound tracks is more down to the “onboard” sound amp/dac than the DT 770 Pro 80 ohm cans.
    4 Non Blond soundtrack What’s Up and Vitalic’s Poison Lips sound powerful, rich crisp and clear with outstanding vocal and guitar clarity whilst listening to What’s Up and superb base registration and general clarity from Poison Lips

    Grab these bargain headphones!

    Outstanding value with fantastic sound! 80 ohm Studio

    These headphones have opened up a new world of sound, which even my good speakers couldn’t achieve. They are comfortable, lightweight, and just the job for my main use, making music on a DAW on the PC.

    After much YouTubing I bought these off a recommendation from BadSeed Tech. This is my first venture into studio grade headphones and these do not disappoint! I went for the 80ohm version and I’m driving these off a Mayflower Arc Mk2. If you don’t plan on using an Amp/Dac then stick to anything with 40ohms or less.

    First of all the price of this unit is surprising, I was expecting to pay much more for audiophile grade headphones. The velour cushions are comfortable but I could feel the clamping force after a few hours of use. It seems to get better over time so it does break in.

    As a gamer the closed back feature of these is ideal to prevent noise leak, the bass that comes this closed back set (in combination with the Mayflower Arc Mk2 with the DSP on) is tremendous! These really do pull above their weight. I find the bass doesn’t interfere with my gaming and somehow contributed to it instead.

    I do find that I have to drive these headphones at about the 12’o clock mark on my Mayflower or higher depending on the content I’m digesting. But that’s more or less normal. After about the 2’o clock mark the DSP needs to be turned off as it starts to struggle!

    Overall I would highly recommend these closed back headphones to anyone with an amp. If you don’t have an amp it’s no big deal, just get the lesser Ohm version and I’m sure you will still be happy.

    Owed for a few months now, excellent pair of headphones for 120. Great clarity and decent bass kick without taking away from the sound. Really built to last and every component can be brought from the manufacture if they do break in years to come.

    Disclaimer: This review is meant for consumers only, not for producers.

    IN A NUTHSELL: If you are looking for an all-rounder pair of headphones that will offer a satisfying sound in a wide variety of music genres, then the DT 770 PROs are indeed a very solid choice. In fact I think that anything more expensive enters the realm of diminishing returns for the average “enthusiast” consumer (again, not producer).

    There are some people who might disagree and I get that. My argument is that if you disagree you are already past the point of average consumer, you likely had the opportunity to test multiple high-quality pairs of headphones, and have developed a taste for the sound signature that suits your preferences best, which will obviously bias you towards either liking, disliking, or being indifferent towards the DT 770 PROs.

    So if you are reading this review and the idea of “having a preffered sound signature” does not mean much to you, then you will most likely enjoy these headphones and will be satisfied with them provided you buy the right version (e.g. the 32 Ohm version if you’re only going to use a phone or laptop to power these).

    So I have tested these predominantly with metal sub-genres such as death metal, black metal, technical death metal, progressive death metal, blackened death metal, etc. Why these sub-genres in particular? This opinion might come across as being a little controversial and dismissive, but I personally feel like most other genres of music are so overproduced nowadays that any pair of decent studio headphones will offer a satisfying listening experience to most consumers. And for the average consumer these are beyond decent. Particularly if you like genres where the bass is emphasized you will love these.

    The most common complaint you’ll hear about these is that the mids are weak and drowned by the bass and the highs. This is true to some extent. It’s not that the mids are completely lacking, rather everything else is so emphasized that the mids can be hard to make out. What this means is that, in particular with Carvernous Death Metal or underproduced Black Metal, you might find that the guitars are not as “shireky”. The higher pitched guitar notes will be easy to make out in general, but the lower repetitive guitar notes can sound a little drowned out and lacking in detail. If you like atmospheric repetitive riffs (think Darkspace, Burzum) you might find the sound with these a little lacking with an overly emphasized bassy atmosphere. Also if you enjoy Cavernous Death Metal or ODSM in general you might find that the signature “chainsaw guitars” are not as “ear piercing” as you might expect, and that the atmosphere in cavernous death metal can feel a little softer given the bassier nature of the sound signature.

    And in general with these headphones you might find that with underproduced metal you don’t get that satisfying “ear piercing” effect as much as you’d like, you know, the sort of stuff that makes you want to play Burzum on a casette player in your garage. It just all ends up sounding a little “softer” than you’d expect. Now the good part is that the mids are not terrible enough that you lose detail, but if you are coming off of headphones with less bass and overemphasized mids like I am, it might take a while to get used to this softness and it might sometimes feel like you need to pay more attention to some of the “muffled” riffs.

    A good example is Craven Idol’s “Even the Demons…”. On my old Marhsall Major 3 the track sounds a lot more “raw” and “in your face”, while on the 770s the track sounds more “atmospheric” than expected. This lack of “rawness” in favor of a more “atmospheric” sound might give one the the impression that some of the more intense guitar riffs are lacking detail. That’s not actually true, and now that I’m getting used to the new sound signature I can tell that all the detail is there. It’s just not as emphasized as it was on my old headphones which had a very different sound signature. And in fact there’s extra detail I’m picking out now in areas of lower frequency.

    But again, this comes down to my initial statement about taste in sound signatures. Some people might be initially repulsed by Marshall Major 3’s sound siganture, the bass is lacking and they almost have that hollow “telephone-like” sound, like there’s no “depth” to the music. The mids are overmphasized. It took me a pretty long time to get used to that type of sound, but once you get used to that sound, underproduced Death and Black Metal simply RIPS AND SHREDS. There’s a “rawness” to the unproduced metal sound that is almost lost with the 770s, even though the actual sound detail is still there. The highs are still good, and there’s new detail in the lower frequency with the bass and some of the percussion, but those mids are a lot more subtle, resulting in a sound that I’d describe more as “atmospheric” rather than “raw”.

    Is this a good or a bad thing? That’s up to every listener to decide. I myself prefer my underproduced metal to sound more “raw” than “atmospheric”, but there’s definitely the component of getting used to the new sound as well.

    That’s honestly my biggest complaint with 770s at the moment. Some of it can be adressed with a little EQ tweaking. A very slight reduction in the lower and higher frequencies, with a slight elevation of the mids results in a little more balanced, less “overly bassy atmospheric” sound. But I emphasize the word “slight” here. Because at the end of the day I think its best to embrace the signature sound of whatever pair of headphones you choose to drive.

    Some additional notes:

    The noise cancellation is surprisingly good.
    It doesn’t have detachable cable which sucks.
    Gaming sounds alright? I’ve only tried Doom Eternal so far, can’t say anything stood out in particular.

The highs are still good, and there’s new detail in the lower frequency with the bass and some of the percussion, but those mids are a lot more subtle, resulting in a sound that I’d describe more as “atmospheric” rather than “raw”.

    Is this a good or a bad thing? That’s up to every listener to decide. I myself prefer my underproduced metal to sound more “raw” than “atmospheric”, but there’s definitely the component of getting used to the new sound as well.

    That’s honestly my biggest complaint with 770s at the moment. Some of it can be adressed with a little EQ tweaking. A very slight reduction in the lower and higher frequencies, with a slight elevation of the mids results in a little more balanced, less “overly bassy atmospheric” sound. But I emphasize the word “slight” here. Because at the end of the day I think its best to embrace the signature sound of whatever pair of headphones you choose to drive.

    Some additional notes:

    The noise cancellation is surprisingly good.
    It doesn’t have detachable cable which sucks.
    Gaming sounds alright? I’ve only tried Doom Eternal so far, can’t say anything stood out in particular.

    Consumer review for DT 770 PRO 32 Ohm version with an emphasis on Death Metal

    These sound lovely and linear, sturdy construction, and the ear pads are comfortable enough to wear all day. Add to the fact you can buy replacement parts as things wear over time, these should last me a good while.
    Note these have a fairly linear response unlike end consumer headphones which are typically boosted in the bass, and vocal ranges

    I think the cable is way too long; this is done so that you can play it out of studio equipment and such but if you’re looking for a pair of headphones on the move then this isn’t ideal, and the 32 ohm version with the smaller cable supposedly just sounds a bit worse. The fact the cable isn’t detachable is a shame as it could completely rectify that. Luckily you can just do that through modding (I sent mine to Custom Cans personally!).

    However these are great in sound quality! Extra bass and treble, but honestly I listen to a lot of rock and indie so that’s great compared to my balanced sets (HD6XX and HD560s). They’re also really comfortable although take a bit of time getting used to.

    The earcups provide alright noise isolation, not as good as XM3s or anything but still good; these are intended as more of an indoor set so that’s not an issue.

    I really like these for games though; makes them sound great! The wire really gets in the way for me on console though, have to put a bit around the back of my neck so it doesn’t get trampled. I really do recommend the detachable mods on this, it lets you put a custom microphone on as well that’s way more wieldy. Just a class idea all round.

    You can’t really go wrong though; they sound great, have decent isolation and are good for games. If you’re weighing more in on music listening through an amp then this version or the 250 ohm one is great as the cable would actually service you there. Otherwise the 32 ohm version is better if you need more portability, although I’ve heard the sound quality is slightly worse. I really do recommend detachable cable mods for the best of both worlds, though.

    Spent a lot of time deliberating which headphones to get for around 100. Really impressed, the sound is gorgeous, with lovely bass, clear top end and a nice wide sound stage. Music just sounds so much better than my previous version of headphones.

    I have the 250 ohm version which I power via a Rega IO amplifier which drives the headphones without issue.

    Initially I was going to get the 1770 but thought I’d try these first as I’ve never had anything from Beyerdynamic. I care most about the sound quality and for the price it’s hard to complain about anything. I think it would be hard to beat them on sound quality without spending quite a bit more – perhaps going to the 1770. I compare these favourably with my AKG k712 Pro, although the soundstage is not as wide which you would expect from a closed back.

    My only gripe is the non-removable cable which I knew of before purchasing.

    Hard to see how you can beat these given the price. Good closed back headphones are few and far between, let alone at this price point.

    These are comfortable to wear and sound quality far superior to DT 100 which I’ve had for many years.
    Not used for gaming. I have no concept of this!

    These are the best headphones I’ve ever tried, soft and crisp sound quality, I recommend it for this price! 80 ohms for pc without a amplifier.

    I use these for UK underground bassline music production (‘DJ Narrows’ on bandcamp, insta and other services). I go straight out my mixing desk on the headphone main bus. My volume control is at about 40-45% (250ohm version) and I believe I monitor relatively quiet.
    I was pleasantly suprised at the sound quality and frequency response. Bass is full enough and deep enough, mids are decent, if I had to be really hyper critical, the upper mids could be a tiny, tiny bit more foward- very small dip on the upper mid but as long as you account for that in translation (check ya studio monitors or something flat to hear) anyone will be good for mixing and mastering. His are nice not over powering or sharp but actually has quite a nice fizz/spice in the high his.
    Because the sound is so good around, I wish that Beyerdynamic 770s went one bit further and gave some more stereo image but maybe the 880s/990s have that cause of their semi/open design.
    They are defo comfortable to wear and listen to. In fact, I really dont really recall having fatigue after a few hours sessions with short breaks here and there. I would describe the ear cups are very comfy.
    As you can tell from the review I was suprised these were so good the price 130 (I paid 108 at the time). I’ve used Sennheiser all my life, Sony once or twice, but mainly Sennys, at the inexpensive price I thought I’d just give them a go and clearly Beyerdynamic have made a great sounding headphone.
    The overall design is chunky, solid, and padded, ya not gonna see these on road but they are a tool and not for fashion.
    I have the 250ohm version, if you are gonna use them with anything else other than a audio interface or headphone amp get the 80 or 32. The 250s were loud enough for me on other devices like mobile and music players but might not be for everybody.
    I also picked up a mod from CustomCans site to extend and flatten the frequency response but I havent installed yet, just enjoying as they are for a few months before experimenting or modding.

    Excellent build quality, although some of the outer shell is made of plastic (obviously metal would be a dumb build material due to its weight) the quality of the materials used is excellent. and the sound is quite frankly excellent. Beware if you wish to buy the 250 Ohm versions of these headphones you WILL need a amp if you wish to drive them at any kind of loud volume and to get the best sound quality possible.
    The two amps I have used for this are the Behringer HA400 (I recommend this if you need a non portable amp) and my Denon AVR 1602 (Very overkill but works great when I can’t use the speakers that are already hooked up to it)
    The DT770 Pros sound great but im also saving up to buy the DT990 Pros for their more open soundstage.

    Good build quality from beyerdynamic and very comfortable for long periods of listening,be aware that these headphones are very flat and will need an amplifier as they are the 250 ohm model ,I will also recommend the dt990 as I have these but they are only for home use as they are open back but did give a wider sound stage than the DT 770.the 770 are a far better headphone than the Sony mdr-1a which I have had for about 3 years but the Sony does have a detachable cable but there companies that will do this for DT 770 ,my next purchase will be the DT 880

    Big fan of the Beyer DT100s I’ve used for years, but these are more comfortable and sound better, probably because they fit over my ears better. The best cans I’ve ever used.
    The 250 Ohm version is ideal for ‘proper’ amps but the lower impedance version would better suit more downmarket phones and laptops if you want realistic sound levels. The screw-on 6.3mm jack adaptor is well engineered and secure so you’d be hard pressed to lose it.
    Highly recommended.
