The DT770 Pro is a pair of closed-back headphones. The sound signature is focused on the lower frequencies but with enough good qualities on the mids and highs to make these headphones fun to listen to. The DT770 Pro is well built and is very comfortable to use even for many hours of listening to music.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Very comfortable because of the great quality materials on the headband and ear pads
These headphones are very comfortable to wear for long periods of listening to music. The ear pads feature velour material on the surface and soft foam inside. The headband has a leather outer layer with soft padding underneath. You can wear these headphones for hours without pain.
Pro Great soundstage for a closed back headphone
The DT770 Pro, when amped properly, creates an open feeling sound stage that is very impressive for a headphone with a closed back design.
Pro Great sound quality
The bass on these headphones is not overpowering like many, instead the bass is clean and controlled. The overall sound signature is focused on the bass but the mids and highs are in no way lacking either.
Pro Impressive isolation and minimal sound leakage
These Beyerdynamics offer impressive sound isolation, keeping exterior noise out and your music in.
Pro Sits well over your ears
The DT770s are very comfortable to wear with deep and spacious ear pads. The velour material used on these are smooth and breathable, and the thick foam provides ample cushioning. These headphones can be worn for long periods of time with ease.
Con The cheaper model requires an amp
Con Headband isn't large enough to fit over a large head
While the Sennheiser's have headbands which can be adjusted to easily fit a 'hatsize 62/63' head, the DT770 Pro and DT990 Pro headbands may need tweaking to make them work for larger head sizes.
Con Way too much bass
DT770 (and the DT990 Pro as well) are way too busy pumping out low bass, resulting in sound distortion and the high end of the spectrum becoming washed out.
