Summary: Description: The Beyerdynamic DT770M is an alternate version of the popular DT770, with supposedly strong isolation for use by drummers or monitoring in noisy environments. Physically, it is the same as the other DT770s, only with black cups, pleather earpads, and an in-line volume control.
Pros: None whatsoever.
Cons: Poor isolation, even though that's their whole purpose. Even poorer sound.
Summary: Warning. Not your avaerage audio geek review. Just Joe Smith sort of review. PC sound card drive only. Limited experience with many headphones. But I know what I like.
Well after some happy years with the SEN HD598 and being so comfortable with their use and their sound why would one change?
Pros: Some isolation, bass amazing, comforttable even in long sessions.
Cons: Headband a little tight, took a while to adjust to the sound.
Summary: 1.) Using this on a portable device: IPhone 5s/6/Ipad/Android Phone:
The portable devices are able to make the DT 770 Pro work, but the result is an emphasis on bass, and the volume is only enough to listen to in a normal environment. If you're trying to drown outside sounds, you really need an amp.
Pros: very very comfortable. Sound is deep, so deep that you start to hear the imperfections in the song, causing siblance.
Cons: Cord is not detachable, and it's too long, requiring tie to keep it under control. Sound is bass emphasis without amp, with amp, it's a pleasure.
Summary: I made a video review of the dt770 80ohm quite sometime ago and was finally finished it. I got them on sale at Guitar Center for $179.99 , the deal was better than anywhere on the web so I jumped on it. When I auditioned them in-store, I was quite impressed.
Pros: Great sound stage, great bass with EQ, sturdy build quality
Cons: Cumbersome to travel with, not compact, cable isn't detachable,
Summary: The DT770 is a lower priced model of the Beyer line, but it is a boiled down version of the Beyer sound and one of the best values in closed headphones. While known for excellent bass response generally, you will also find them one of the most comfortable in the price range.
Pros: Bass quantity and range, comfort for extended listening, easy to drive
Cons: Recessed mids mean it's not the best choice for some. Earpads lose their shape after time.
Summary: I purchased this headphone after I returned the Sennheiser HD 25-1 II.
I was not satisfied with the soundstage of the sennheiser, plus after an hour of wearing them my ears started to feel bruised.
The DT770 Pro does not have these downsides, the only downside is the siblance.
Summary: I'll preface my review with that I am not a seasoned audiophile, so I don't know all of the jargon, but I do appreciate good sound, and I like what I hear in these. They are by far the best sounding headphones I have ever listened to.
Granted my collection of headphones is very limited.
Pros: closed circumaural design, 80ohm design allows use on portables in a pinch, very comfortable
Cons: Eardrum-piercing sibilance prior to break in completion, break in is quite long
Summary: These headphones are my first pair of high-end (probably mid-fi to some) cans and after a year or two of use, I have mixed feelings about them. When I first got them, of course they were a HUGE step up and I loved the bass from them, they were the perfect headphones to me.
Summary: A bass lover's phone for sure. Can be fun with the right music. But the bass is of the one-note "whump" variety and that gets boring. Still, can be good with rock. I've noticed some pretty sucked out mids, though, so vocals suffer. And for a bass-head phone, the highs can get pretty brittle.
