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 of about 75 hours. After that I put them on and I was amazed at how good they sounded. As far as isolation goes, they seem quite good to me.
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: Hey All,
This is my first head-fi review and I am proud to say that these Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 are wonderful! I currently own a pair of Bose QC2 and the ATH-M50x and wil be using those to compare.
The 770s are built tough, rugged plastic and mostly metal here. The velour pads and headband seem sturdy enough and I have already seen you can buy replacements from Beyer for quite cheap.
Pros: Sound, Build Quality, Comfort
Cons: Non removable cable, Fairly tight clamping, cheap packaging
Excerpt: These headphones are used by me at the drum set to monitor the band in a church praise band setting and for practice & monitoring at home. They are used in church two services every weekend and a few times a week at home. I bought these to replace some advertised as extreme _ _ _ _ _ tion headphones that broke on me after a couple years of use. The first thing I noticed on the DT-770M's is the nice carrying case they came in.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Well built quality
