This is what I wrote about the 250 Ohm version... "Overall good sounding. My DT880 might sound somewhat more refined in the mids and highs, but in the lows and especially in the low-lows the DT770 beat em. They are probably my 2nd favorite closed headphone, right after my beloved Denon AH-D2000 (which seem to outperform all other headphones I tried).
Pros: Very comfy / Overall good sound quality / Nice lows / Price
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. The ear cups aren't as nice as the DT990 velour pads but they are comfortable. They do get sort of hot after wearing them for a long time.
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: Was looking for a overal headphone (I mean one that works with all genres of music, movies and gaming) that didn't needed extra equipment like amp or dac, a headphone for a lazy person.
And of course a bang for the buck.
Let me tell you I found all that in the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80.
Plug it in your pc, hifi set or portable and it starts doing its thing; sounding great and let you have fun listning.
Pros: Great sound with almost everything. Comfort. Quality build. Bang for the Buck!
Summary: Directly compared:
Sony MDR-7509HD (my last headphones)
Sennheiser HD380 Pro
Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro-80
Beyerdynamic DT880 Pro

Tonal accuracy is very good. I am using as a reference my home theater with Sunfire XT ribbon hybrids and Bag End professional mastering subwoofers. The all important mid-high region is spot on. Bass is slightly emphasized, true, but the degree is exaggerated IMO.
Pros: Great tonal balance, imaging and isolation
Cons: Inefficient, slight bass emphasis, very long break-in required
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: Drummer's...you HAVE to buy these headphones! If you want to save your hearing use these headphones. They allow you to LOWER the level in the headphones due to the 35dB ambient noise reduction. Whatever you are monitoring you can listen at a VERY comfortable level and still hear your kit! Just tell your sound guy to bleed the kit into your mix and life is beautiful.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Powerful, Professional Functions
