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: 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: I have been annoyed by air conditioning noise in my room and traffic noise near my house.
Almost good headphone I have are open headphone. So I decided to purchase new closed headphone.
I choose DT770 PRO 80. Because so many professional musicians use this headphone during recording session.
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.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Well built quality
Excerpt: 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!
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Powerful, Professional Functions
Summary: Good quality build, do everything expected of them, however bought one set 6 months ago and they came with a padded carry case, my second pair just purchased only included a lightweight drawstring bag which would not protect them if you are carrying to gigs etc . . .
