beyerdynamic DT 240 PRO Monitoring Headphones : Nicely balanced, portable recording headphones.

Bought these as an upgrade to a pair of pioneer headphones. Been wanting a better quality system but previously unsure of how much improvement was possible. Decided on these based on price (i. Not megabucks) and i’m thrilled with the result. Bottom end reproduction is powerful but punchy and mid and top ranges clear and precise. They’re really comfortable too and the feel and presentation is really premium. Really pleased to have taken the plunge with these cans (came next day for free as well).

The first thing i noticed was how comfortable they are to wear. Specifically the almost wrapped under my ears making them feel secure. The soft leather cushions also completely closed of my ear. I couldn’t perceive any exaggerated equalization or, stated more accurately no compromise on audio quality. Whether listening to music or speech, the audio sounds exactly like it should. The leather covers are easy to remove and replace for cleaning for example. My son (7yo) also uses them, and with a much smaller head than mine doesn’t have any difficulty with the same snug fit. They work just as well for him as they do for me.

The dt 240 pro headphones are absolutely incredible. The sound quality is like no other, pure & precise, great for recording too. Also really comfortable to wear with the ergonomic headband and soft ear pads for hours of wearing comfort ,so great for commuting etc on long journeys & when listening to any ios devices etc. I’ve always bought beyerdynamic equipment, headphones, microphones and i’m not about to change now.

I bought these to listen to meditation clips on youtube and music on my samsung mobile. I was able to use them straight out of the box and plugged into my phone, they are a really comfortable fit and when meditating they block out other sounds so enabling me to concentrate. The added benefit at this time of year is when i’m listening to my music on my lunch time walk they keep my ears warm too and don’t mess my hair up like a hat would 🙂 amazing pair of headphones and would (and will) recommend them very highly.

Bought these to replace my ageing old ear phones that died due to cable failure and multiple repairs. One of the first things you notice is the build quality rather than flimsy plastic fittings uses by even the major named manufacturers. Headphone surround is metal with the cups rotating at about 90+ degrees to allow them to lie flat for transport. The headphone cups inserts to the head band which are also metal allowing for a strong precise feel. Where plastics are used they are of high standard. The cable for the headphones is separate and has a telephone curls style in the 1st half to allow it to be stretched safely. Keyed ends have a smaller jack for plugging into the either side of the headphone cups (this is a nice feature allowing you to change which side of the headphone you want the cable). 5mm jack is threaded to allow for ¼” jack adaptor (included). Also comes with a soft cloth bag to protect when transporting.

Second pair of beyerdynamics. Compared to those studio monitors the dt 240s give a detailed sound but with slightly less space between instruments and vocals. However there is a little bit more bass with more excitement. The dt 770s are more clinical in presentation. I bought these to use on my travels although they are not noise cancelling they do have good passive isolation and are easier to drive so plenty of volume from phone or tablet. Another pro is the detachable cable.

I haved before dt 770 pro but they was too big. This model is ideal for traveling and mixing.

After taking my time searching through many (affordable) options for some recording headphones, i finally decided to take the leap and go for the 240’s. My primary use for these headphones was to be able to monitor my recordings using my zoom h5, i’ve been building up a variety of different outdoor recordings, so portability was important to me. The product itself feels robust, which, for recording outdoors i was very happy to see. Another thing that was fantastic was that i did not notice any physical discomfort from having the cans on my head for extended periods of time, something i have suffered from in the past from various headphone manufacturers. They have a nicely defined sound, no element of the frequency response appears over accentuated, yet, everything has plenty of definition to it without presenting ear fatigue. They’ve been particularly great for highlighting the richness of seemingly pedestrian occurrences, such as pebbles crashing against each other in a rock pool, for example. Overall, although i have only had these a relatively short time, i’ve found for the price they have proved to be an excellent pair of headphones for my application, and i would happily recommend them for recording purposes. I will certainly be trying them out in a more studio-based environment.

These are a really good option for analytic listening, when you need something a little more compact than normal studio headphones. The build is the usual beyerdynamic german quality that you would expect, sound wise they’re very analytical, lots of clarity and really well balanced. I compared them to my yamaha pro 500’s and they have equal definition to the yamaha’s, even though they were more than twice the money. There are lots of “pro” headphones out there, and you can spend much more money with many reputable brands, but beyerdynamic have a track record as the industry standard which is why i went for these as my mobile reference set. They were well packaged, and come with a cloth bag, nothing like a hard case but it keeps the whole lot together in one place, cable is detachable and fits into either side of the headphones, just what i need. Really pleased, and i am recommending them to others.

As far as budget headphones go, these are right up there. The ear cups fit snugly around the ear which helps to isolate external noise and the build quality is high as expected from beyerdynamic (the headband even utilises a metal runner). They are compact and lightweight so i feel they will be great for my future travel plans. The bass is surprisingly well-pronounced yet accurate which i did not expect from a cheaper pair of cans.

They sound amazing, especially if listening on a hi-fi or a computer (but certainly low enough impedence to listen on a phone but i wouldn’t walk around with 100 bucks on my head). Virtually no sound leak although the sound isolation for the listener is not that good, you can’t just pop them on in the office without music and think you’ll have some quiet – plus why put yourself in the vice-like grip if not listening to music. Too tight, the cans are quite small as well, and i thought i had a narrow face. Sound quality makes up for it however.

Really nice quality of build and fit nicely on the ears with quite a good amount of isolation. A great reference sound for both home studio use as well as a great product to listen to while on the move from iphone etc.

Excellent product, fast delivery.
