The Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro has long been a studio favourite by engineers, musicians and mixers. It’s an affordable closed-back headphone with 3 optional resistance choices. 32 Ohms is a newer addition which suits those are looking to use the DT 770 Pro with a mobile device i.e iPhone, Android phone, Tablet etc. You can also get it 80 Ohms and 250 Ohms depending what
DT 770 Comfort
The first thing we’ve noticed about the DT770’s is the comfort. These things are light on the head and the circumaural design gives our ears loads of room, this moves the pressure away from the ears reducing the fatigue we might otherwise expect. If you have
The DT 770
The advent of the 32 Ohm model makes the DT 770 great for people wanting to use these for music only and general use with portable devices – offices, commuters, home listening etc. It’s important to remember that these are designed for professional use – studios, recording musicians etc. So if you’re an audiophile remember these are designed to let you hear all the frequencies and instruments separated and balanced. They do this extremely well. We love the sound of these because of that, they provide great instrument separation and isolation.

The bass on these is there, strong and not overpowering. It’s not boosted and isn’t overly tight. We tried some Sia and then some Ellie Goulding as they both have multi-layers of acoustic and machined generated audio. The vocals remained the star of the show with these which was nice.

It’s so easy at this price range to end up with mids that are artificial or over processed. These mids are very true to life – the mid point in the vocal range is really nice and we can imagine listening to these for long periods of time with out experiencing fatigue. They remind us of a good SM58 – affordable, solid and natural sound reproduction. Mixing with these would be enjoyable and we can imagine you’ll end up with a better end product having cans that produce true to life mids.
The highs were not over the top and will sit well for most people’s listening tastes. We put on Pink Floyd’s – What Do You Want From Me because if anything is going to bring out the crisp top end it’s a Dave Gilmour solo. We like a sibilance so we wouldn’t have complained if there was a touch more
