beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO Studio Headphones – 80 Ohm : Isolation headphones for drummers

Used heavily for music use during travels and also a lot of gaming. Holds up incredibly well for both. Positional sound is spot on with these headphones. Pretty comfy but i did opt for a separate pair of memory foam ear cushions instead of the standard plush ones. Build quality is really good. Bought m50x’s at the same time to decide which one to keep and sound wise they are very similar but comfort and build quality hands down goes to the dt 770 pro’s. One of the best things i have ever purchased.

Tried them with a friends amp (not sure what it was) but they still sound pretty heavenly plugged into my roland duo-capture ex. You can really crank these and they give a suuuper nice response. Pretty flat, slightly richer bass and maybe slightly scooped mids, but for me, they sound basically perfect. 35mm screw on adaptor and a lovely coiled cable which is a plus. I can wear these for hours with no problems with ear ache, and i can even wear my glasses under them for extended periods of time which is a pretty huge plus for anyone who has to wear glasses and has had to bear the pain that comes with shoddy headphone pads.

My ears are so happy with these headphones the only downside is the cable for when you’re out and about have to tuck it in but at home fine i use it to tie up the misses and still can listen to my music happy days.

I came to the dt770’s when looking for a gaming headset. I am sick of years and years of broken microphones and poor quality units with high prices. After some vigorous googling i was recommended these. 80 ohm is meant to be the one to get for a typical pc onboard soundcard, and the closed ear perfect for blocking out room noise. For gaming they are crystal clear, its impossible to notice the lack of 5. 1 that gaming headset sell themselves on. For music, well, i am far from an audiophile but i can now tell the sound quality of different audio files night and day. Oddly, it did seem that it took a week or so of listening through them to actually enjoy them fully. I don’t know if they wear in or if my ears have to get used to them but they sound great now. Oh, and a modmic fixed to the left side works beautifully.

These beyerdynamic dt770m were bought primarily for use while playing acoustic drums to replace the vic firth isolation headphones we’ve had for last few years as one of the speakers failed and they have been used with in ear phones for several months. Having researched the alternatives online for over ear isolation headphones (they are used by other members of the family so didn’t want iems) we ended up not much the wiser with all the conflicting reports. Looking to spend around £100 initially, these were on sale for £122, the 770ms seemed a better buy than the vic firths and were suggested for drummers over the sennheiser 280s and 380s. Went for the 80 ohms set as they were for use with various sound sources. The 770ms arrived next day, great. Tried them with smart phones, laptop, and amplifiers – they all powered them but the sound quality was not as high as expected, even being aware that isolation phones with closed backs have their problems. I’m no expert but the sound was only slightly better than my £20 sony’s, which give no isolation. The 770s are more balanced but they don’t isolate quite as well as the vic firth’s which have been criticised in other threads. The 770s do sound better than the vic firths and are much more comfortable so better over long periods. Also like that you can buy spare components, shame the good length cable is not detachable for replacement or to use them just for ear protection without dismantling them.

I’ve used many ‘gaming headphones’ over the years. Because they are designed to break down after the warranty period. I bought these in january 2013 and they are still excellent 6 years on. I mainly use these for gaming but also music when i want a richer sound experience. Rainbow six siege, apex legends, pubg and titanfall 2 are just some of the games that benefit from having headphones like these. Note, a headphone amp is needed to use these. I’m currently using the fiio e10k olympus usb dac and headphone amplifier (also on amazon). These headphones have recessed mids.

I’ve been listening and playing music all my adult life and know quality sound when i hear it. These headphones are real value for money. The sound spectrum is wide with excellent high and low frequency response. The phones are really comfortable to wear for lengthy periods of time. The sound insulation is extremely good too, keeping both the sound you’re listening to and external sound apart. I’m really thrilled with them and can wholeheartedly offer my recommendation.

Very comfortable, no sound leakage, use at work as well as when playing/recording music (‘closed’ enough). 80 ohm is a right impedance balance for my uses (good quality out of my macbook air directly, great quality out of a proper amplifier). Ok when plugged to my phones, although i bought a portable amplifier to increase the quality (fiio a3).
