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: 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: 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.
