[Official] OCN Headphones and Earphones Club - Page 2415

post #24141 of 38591
Anyone have any experience with the DT770s? I'm starting to think about a nice closed set of headphones, since I'm going to be living in a dorm soon and don't want to bother my room mate with my DT880s that I have now. I'd probably be pairing them up with either a Magni or Vali and listening mainly to rock of all sorts, as well as gaming.

do it.. they are very nice, I got a pair of DT770 Pro 80s last november and i love mine pretty much all I use at home now, I can wear them for hours without discomfort and the SQ is excellent for being closed headphones they have a great sound-stage also. Isolation is very good as well.


I mostly drive my DT770s with a FiiO E07K/E09K combo or sometimes with a vintage Yamaha C-60 preamp.

Yeah comfort is big for me, my DT880s feel like pillows on my face so I'm sure 770s are similar. The 250 Pros are on Amazon for $155 right now, is that a good price for them new?

Yeah 155 is a good price. They are well made headphones but understand that the DT770's are VERY v-shaped. They will be lacking in the mid-range. Some people like that but I'm not a fan and if you like the DT880's you probably won't like the DT770's.

yeah.. that is pretty good...

in my case i could order the DT770 Pro 250s from B&H for $1 (lol) less but no tax (free shipping...but longer shipping cause i have Prime)


so if you could avoid tax (depending on your state) B&H might be worth considering also?
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/92801-REG/Beyerdynamic_459046_DT_770_Pro_Headphone.html



but you know with the no hassle returns and prime I might just use amazon if i was ordering.

if you have a GuitarCenter near they sometimes get used ones..I got mine used (in Very good shape) used at GC for $80~ (no box just headphones..but meh.) i was there last week had another set used but the wanted $120 for them (had box and whatever not..) so pricing might vary

Ok, Amazon will probably work best for me, I'll order when I get home. I don't usually buy used, even though I've made exceptions to that in the past. Third pair of headphones inbound, w00t!

Check out the Shure SRH440. Better for your music, but in all honesty, the DT770s are better in comfort and probably gaming.

I didn't think the mids were very recessed at all on my DT770 80ohms. Heavy on the bass, decent chunky mids, and sorta rolled off highs that lacked in detail/crispness. When I think very v-shaped, I think ATH-M50s or something.

I understand, I actually am not a HUGE fan of the DT880s. Don't get me wrong, they sound great, but the treble is definitely a little harsh for me. I want to try something different, since I don't have much experience yet, I don't know what I really like.

Thanks for the recommendation, I think I'm gonna try the 770s first though, I really like the Beyer design.

They are VERY lacking in the low-mids. They have a big drop from about 200Hz to 500Hz, and then are a bit recessed until about 1k. I found them far from lacking in the treble.

Here's a graph of the 250Ω response

They do tend bright, and are still quite sharp in the treble. I understand trying your options though! You'll learn more about your tastes the more you try.
