Excerpt: I am a drummer, and because I have a problem with earwax buildup, I wanted to stop using earplugs and IEMs. So, I was looking for some circumaural headphones which could serve the same purpose. A lot of typical earplugs claim noise attenuation of ~30 dB, and my Etymotic IEMs claim 35-40.
Cons: Poor isolation, Poor Sound Quality, Pricey / Poor Value
Excerpt: I am a music producer, studio audio engineer, audio for live events and I have the DT770 Beyerdynamic for many years, and are an excellent reference but for the live recordings I need an excellent reference but with good power.
Excerpt: When I first took these out of the box, they sounded terrible and I was really wondering if I had just thrown my money away. I decided to give them the full treatment and I burned them in with a variety of music, hitting all the frequencies, soft for a day, then normal, then a bit loud, for a total...
Summary: I am very happy with these headphones so far! I have cleaer sound from high to low and extra bass for electric drum set bass, is NOT an issue. With other headphones I did have some trouble seinheisser and NADY were, for the model I had not enough volume or range. Nady qh360 and Seinheisser HD210.
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: 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'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.
Excerpt: I planned to use these headphones on stage (bass playing) in order to minimize hearing loss due to loud stage volume (loud drummer). As I have hearing loss on the mid and high frequencies I cannot evaluate the sound fidelity of these headphones.
