DT 770 PRO Closed Dynamic Studio Headphones - 80 Ohm description:

The Beyerdynamic DT770 Headphones 80 Ohm are closed back dynamic headphones that use the same comfortable, sound isolating design as the 250 Ohm studio version, but with a lower resistance for general purpose and mobile applications. Because of the lower resistance, the DT 770 Pro 80 Ohm headphones are louder and work on low power devices such as smart phones, mp3 player, laptops and bus powered interfaces. Therefore, if you are working in a loud environment or using a battery operated device, the Beyerdynamic DT 770Pro 80 Ohm headphones make the perfect choice of headphone.

When out and about, you really need to block as much ambient noise out as possible and a lot of headphones do this by clamping the ear-pads as tightly to your ears as possible and using materials that absorb a lot of sound. This produces two unwanted issues; discomfort, after prolonged use; and a loss of audio quality as sound being generated by the driver is absorbed by the cup. The DT 700 Pro series avoids this by using a clever bass reflex system and a large circumaural cup design with velour pads. Of course the real technology is in the transducer itself, which produces a nominal frequency response of 5Hz to 35kHz and a nominal SPL of 96dB – an exceptional performance.

If you require headphones for front of house, drum monitoring or for extremely loud environments then click here to view the monitoring version.

If you are looking to use the headphones in a quiet studio environment, then click here to view the 250 Ohm version.

Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro FAQ:

 

What are the differences in headphone impedance for?

The different impedances are used for different situations and brought about by a different coil design. The higher impedance headphones use a thinner wire and have a more lightweight design. The lesser weight allows a better movement resulting in a slightly better quality signal. The lower impedance is brought about by a thicker wire which lets more signal through, hence a lower impedance, but the additional weight means the diaphragm doesn't move so accurately.

Which headphones should I buy; 80 Ohm or 250 Ohm?

A pair of 80Ohm headphones are louder and require less power, which is great for mobile or front of house applications where the deficiency in sound quality would not be noticed. A pair of 250Ohm headphones would be more accurate but quieter – which is no problem in a quiet studio with a powerful headphone preamp which you can find on mixers or mains driven audio interfaces.

Should I buy open or closed back headphones?

Closed headphones are primarily designed to keep sound in, so that musicians can listen to audio through the headphones whilst recording using a very sensitive microphone. Any bleed from the headphone would be recorded, so the less audio that escapes, the better. The design also has the reverse effect of blocking outside sound out, making them ideal for use in public or other noisy spaces. The downside is that in order to minimise bleed they need to effectively seal the cup to your ear which means air can't get in or out and the movement of the diaphragm can feel like it is sucking your ear-drum. The second problem is that the materials used to block help limit the amount of audio getting in or out of the cups, also absorb audio being produced by the headphone, especially low end frequencies, thus losing bass response. Therefore, open back are preferable for mixing and prolonged use, the ambient noise that you can hear clearly makes it feel and sound far more natural. Ideally, if you want to mix and record then you should by both open and closed back.

What is a circumaural design?

Circumaural is a term used to describe an ear cup that completely surrounds the ear so that the whole of your ear, pinna included, is contained within the cup.

Review:
These are very high quality headphones.Solidly built but comfortable to wear, and with a very clear and natural sound reproduction.

Review:
Very comfortable for long sessions. Very little bleed. Good for sound isolation if you are trying to work in a noisy environment.
I've had my pair for 7 years and this year £20 to replace the felt pads and they are like brand new.

Review:
I now own the 250ohm and 80ohm version.
The 250 version are perfect for the the Behringer X32, but are too quiet for a laptop or Yamaha DTS drums.
The 80ohm version are a massive improvement for the laptop, and are much improved for the DTS, except when playing loud - the Kick drum distorts.
Will probably give the 770 M version a go at some point as those are 106dB rather than 96dB.

Sound quality is very good, just make sure you buy the right pair!

Review:
Finally replacing my old DT770 Pro headphones after 6 years of good service with them. Didn't hesitate to buy another pair since they have been a great addition to my studio setup in terms of reference and recording.

Review:
Really love these headphones. For £105 they are amazing build quality and sound superb.
I've tested them out with a variety of electronica music and they are great.
The detail is there and I am intending to use these for production work too.

The 80 ohm version has no problem being powered via my Macbook too.

Great product.

Pros: +
Extremely comfortable for long studio use.Brilliant, flat sound that is great for mixing and eq'ing.Look great.

Cons: -
Lowish volume when used with mp3 player - consider getting the new lower ohms version if that's the priority.

Deep, rich and punchy sound. Using them for production and general listening and I've been very pleased with the performance in both fields.

Completely overkill for in the office, but so nice to be able to listen to quality music with out disturbance!

Review:
My line of work is subtitling, and I typically wear headphones 6-8 hours a day. The sound must be great, and they must be comfortable around the ears and over the head. These headphones fulfills all those requirements for me. I would definitely recommend them.

Review:
These are just so light and comfortable, an absolute pleasure to wear. used them for around six hours on the first use you hardly notice they are there compared to my AKG 271s, a different class of headphone. They are a bit more bass rich than the AKGs which is nice but not to heavy, a very nice clean and focused sound.

Review:
Amazing, one of the best things I ever bought - I have them just on my macbook (still haven't used them with my motu ultralite as they're loud enough), I use Audio Hijack and a little EQ to boost the bass when I want (It's already nice and punchy for monitoring but lovely to listen to music with a slight bass boost). Super quick delivery and great price. Thanks

Review:
I've tried various budget range headphones though the years, but decided to give a more expensive pair a try and the results where like night and day.
Crisp mids and top end and good bass response that's not to artificial.
I tried a pair of DT100 which are the industry standard which where good but I prefered the DT 770.
I should have bought a pair years ago.

Best pair of headphones I have had. Amazing sound quality, not totally un-coloured so may not be the best for mixing etc but certainly do a good job. Very nice, tight bass. Very impressed overall.

They are very flat headphones. Nothing is too emphasised. I can hear everything clearly when mixing tracks. Great for production!

Great headphones; loud enough volume and bass is good, but recommend an amplifier to get even more out of these headphones.

Very comfortable as well can wear for hours without discomfort.
