Summary: WILL COMPLETE AT A LATER DATE
The bass is decent, but not to basshead levels. The sub-bass is definitely lacking. The low-mids are very recessed, the high-mids are recessed but not by a lot. The treble is very pronounced and sharp to my ears. They are clear and seem not to distort. These would be good for the right person.
Pros: Good mid-bass, good clarity, solid soundstage, great build quality, very comfortable
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.
In a song with a lot of S's or maybe hard t's the headphone starts to whistle. If the volume is cranked up it the whistle actually hurts my ears.
Summary: So I bought this BD DT770 pro because I am in the middle of mixing the tracks we've recorded with my metalband. Because I am a truckdriver, I spend a lot of time in my truck, dragging along my laptop whereon I do the mixing. I definitly needed a good headphone for studio use. By doing some homework I decided that The DT770 pro was the one I couldn't go wrong with, so I ordered it.
Before these headphones I owned a Pioneer SE650 and a Sony MDR CD570.
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. I was hearing sounds I had never heard before in music, hearing imperfections and low-quality sounds as well.
Excerpt: I've been playing drums for 35 years and my journey for the right isolation headphones has finally come to it's end. Ever since I purchased the Beyerdynamic's DTT 770 M Isolation Headphones for drummers, my ears are barely ringing these days. I've tried countless of headphones (you know which ones) and nothing comes close to the results I get from my DTT 770 M Isolation Headphones.
Summary: I am very pleased with the quality of these headphones, they give very good insulation in both live studio and FOH work, they are very comfortable I have used them for several three hour periods during band rehearsals whilst mixing multi track takes and also for one and ahalf hour sessions for recording multi track takes of live gigs, the zipperd bag the headphones come in is made of a robust woven nylon material and the foam insert is molded to allow for the cord and...
Summary: I have been using these for about six months now. First, you need to know that these will not be acceptable as mixing headphones - that is not what they are designed for. Their purpose is to allow drummers and FOH engineers hear what they're doing during loud performances, and at this they excel. The amount of isolation they provide is borderline scary.
Summary: I bought these headphones for use when recording drummers based on the ambient noise reduction figures, that were well above similarly priced headphones. The response is good, better than is really needed for tracking in loud environments, as is the accuracy, but it's the rejection of outside noise that really works here. The listener can concentrate on the headphone mix rather than being blasted by their drum kit or guitar amp.
Summary: I am a sound engineer and needed a pair of headphones for solo monitoring channels for FOH mixing. Obviously because of the environment that I am in, I needed good isolation from ambient sound, but also very accurate sound reproduction. I bought these because of Beyers claim that it was ideal for FOH engineers. I have found these headphones excellent, Beyers claims are truly valid.
