Reviews and Problems with Beyer Dynamic DT-770 Pro

Beyerdynamic - DT 770 Pro are great headphones
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I am certainly not an audiophile, but after a couple of years of using these I am completely satisfied and they would be at the top of my list if I ever need to buy another pair of headphones. Sound seems very good, and construction is solid, if slightly unpolished. Comfort is outstanding, with Beyerdynamic's unique fuzzy ear-muffler design pillowing your ears, though they can get a little hot and damp when it's hot. The cord is lengthy with a durable connector.
Summary: I've only had a few hours to burn these in, but so far I am extremely impressed. As of now I have the FiiO E6 amp to drive them, and it pushes them better than I expected. Being that these are 250 Ohm there aren't many portable amps that can do these cans justice. They frequency range is what I'm most impressed with 5Hz-35000Hz. They provide bass if you want it, and it is pretty clean and tight. The mids are very enjoyable, and I believe the highs to be pretty good too.
Pros: Amazing sound stage for closed back, The frequency range on these is very impressive, they have great tight bass, clear mids, and pretty nice highs.
Summary: Set up for review:
IPOD Classic 6th gen
Electric Avenue PA2V2 amp
WAV Files only.
Brilliant sound from closed cans for the price
Build Quality is top notch
Sounds great with various genres (Funk, Soul, Jazz, Hip Hop)
Not a fan of the cable. Would prefer a straight cable
Need to know:
These really need an amp for portable use.
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). I think it's a good idea to EQ this cans, by slightly raising the mids and minimally taming the highs you can really improve the sound of this cans.
Pros: Very comfy / Overall good sound quality / Nice lows / Price
Summary: All I'm going to say is that in terms of audio professionals these are really a bargain and qualified for the job.
I know that many audiophiles prefer studio reference monitor-like headphones, but I can't make the excuse that these sound harsh when I'm mixing. They exposed flaws in my mixes the first time I reviewed a track with them.
Pros: Design, Comfort, Durability, Soundstage, Value, and they are great for mixing.
Cons: I hear these as too harsh without the extra power from an amplifier.
Summary: I just got my pair, and I can say that it was well worth the money I paid for it. I have a homemade discrete amp to drive them which makes everything sound brilliant. Of course, that's what is needed to drive the 250 Ohm versions but I guess a portable amp will just barely do the trick.
Pros: Pretty big soundstage for closed back. Tight, punchy bass, nice highs, super comfortable. Good bang for buck.
Cons: Mids are a bit neglected, cable is integrated
Summary: I won mine at an eBay auction, slightly used and all reviews really live up to the fullest except for some over hyped cans which I have also tested before I decided to have this set.
So to presume mine has already burned in, was thinking of making it as my main home rig but I need to find a decent amp to unleash its might wherein my Fiio E17 couldn't contrary to the rave of this combo.
