Design

The Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 80 headphones have been made to last. They offer simple elegance, keeping things classic and not flashy or over-the-top. You can choose from full black, or black with light grey earpads. They have a soft sheen to them and alternate between a crackling and smooth pattern, to offer a little contrast.

The headband has a plush covering with spring steel underneath that is robust to withstand constant use. It provides a fit that’s secure and comfortable, so you won’t feel like it’s sliding off. The earcups are extremely soft and feel lovely on the ears, made from plush velour. This is perfect for studio producers who may spend hours mixing music and need comfort.

It also allows people who have glasses to wear them comfortably, unlike leatherette material where it can squeak and feel stiff against the head. Like the headband, the earpad area has a durable frame underneath, this time made from tough plastic. The pads are easily removable to clean.

Although the cable is not removable, it still makes them ideal for studio use as it’s long enough to stretch quite a few feet. If you do decide to use them with your mobile phone, it’s best to fold up the cable and secure it with a zip tie of some sort to keep it from tangling.

Universal Impedance

With an impedance of 80 Ohms, the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 80 headphones are intended for universal studio use. This means they can be used in a huge range of studio applications. This makes them suitable for studio amateurs and professionals alike, so they aren’t limiting in their range.

They don’t require as much power as the 250 Ohm edition, which also makes them appropriate for DJs who require listening to the entire frequency range, without needing high levels of power to do so. Due to their deep bass impulse, these respond super well to hip hop, rock, and electronic house music, which are all very common for DJs to play.

Quality of Sound

The Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 80 are certainly high-performance headphones. They offer such dynamic levels of sound that you would think they have an open-back design, yet they’re fully closed. A wide soundstage is achieved and the drivers provide a high level of speed. This means that sounds don’t stay lingering within the cups, which keeps everything smooth and punchy.

These headphones do need an amp to reach louder volume levels. While they’re only noise isolating, or in other words, passive noise-canceling headphones, they are still great for mixing music. This is because the design of the earcups make them sit around the ears instead of over them, blocking out background noises and allowing accurate mixing.

In terms of the lower end frequencies, these headphones have an innovative bass reflex system. This means that the bass response is improved to offer sounds that could rival most open-back models. Whilst the bass is accurate and enhanced, it’s still calmer than ordinary consumer headphones.

With this focus on the bass, the mid and high sound shifts do drop a little, but it’s nothing that affects the overall listening experience. It’s an aspect that can help reduce the normal resonances of a human ear, so the bass won’t be altered.

Thanks to the fantastic bass response of these headphones, they can also work great for watching films because of the highly detailed audio focus. High and mid-frequency levels come across a little flat, but they’re still crisp and easy to listen to. This is just another reason as to why they’re perfect for sound monitoring in the studio. You can define the higher sounds with ease and differentiate them from everything else.

As these are universal about their impedance level, these work very well with an amp as well as within smaller media devices. With portable devices though, you may not achieve the complete sound range or volume levels that you may have been looking for.

Comfort Level

As mentioned above, these Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 80 headphones feature wonderful velour earpads that feel heavenly against the ears and head. The pads sit just around the edges of the ears, so they can be worn for a prolonged amount of time without worrying about soreness afterward.

Despite sitting quite tightly on the head, the plush headband is still comfortable and doesn’t press against the skull. The band is fully adjustable, and you can alter them while they’re worn so you don’t have to stop listening.

Overall Conclusion

Whether they’re used by the pros or casual music lovers, the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO 80 headphones provide incredible hi-fi sound with a high level of comfort. These are a durable pair of headphones that have been made to last long term.
