    I have owned the 80ohm version for over 3 years now and I love these headphones. They aren't the best in any single category but overall and for their price I just havent found any better for certain applications.

    Pros:

    They are extremely comfortable. They are a little heavy but so well padded I can wear them for 6 to 8 hours without discomfort even with glasses on. They can get a little warm, but much less than cans with pleather pads.

    They are built like a tank. From the cable to the cups to the headband everything is solid. The combination of price and durability make me feel like I can really use them without having to baby them. The pads do flatten and get dirty after extended use (400 to 500hrs the first time, less and less each successive time). However, they are easy enough to remove and wash by hand. I only just recently felt compelled to replace the pads but am confident I put 1000+hrs on them).

    They isolate extremely well both ways. I used them mostly for monitoring while laying guitar tracks with great results.

    I also like the single sided cable. It is very easy to coil and has always remained nice and straight. Obviously coil it properly like any audio cable. Youtube it if you don't know how.

    They also have a surprisingly nice soundstage for a closed headphone. Don't expect the width or depth of a nicer open can, but nevertheless compared to most of the common closed headphones I've tried (Sony V6/7506, AT M50, HD280, etc) they are really good.

    One potential con:

    The product description and many reviews here call it a reference headphone or say it is nuetral or accurate. These are relative terms, but I would say the dt770s are NOT an ideal reference headphone. There is significant bass emphasis and the mids are noticeably recessed. I think they are perfectly adiquate for monitoring while laying down tracks, but I wouldn't trust it for mixing. These are better in every other way, but a more nuetral and accurate headphone similarly priced is the Senn HD280 (also isolates better too, but way less comfortable). Also because of this, I wouldn't recommend it for lovers of classical music. However, for heavy rock and hip hop they are superb. I also love them for movies and I imagine they would be great for gaming.

    Obviously, if you are moving up the sound quality chain (ie form apple earbuds) you will absolutely love these. If you are moving down (ie high end Beyers, Senns, Grados etc) you may be dissapointed. Personally I use Senn HD650s for most music enjoyment but still bust out the 770s for some bass heavy tracks. Now they have been mostly retired to late night movie viewing and I just don't know of a better can for this application (comfort + great bass + great soundstage = winning formula).

    I obviously can't speak to the amping needs for the 250 from experience, but don't be surprised if it sounds muddy, dull, or generally quiet without adequate power (I just tried mine out of an ipod for the first time and it's no good). I expect your HT reviever should do just fine for movies, otherwise expect to look into dedicated headphone amps.

    I was a bit apprehensive about these after they arrived, but the sound quality stands up by itself, by far the best cans I've owned.
    At first look, they appeared a bit 'plasticy', but that proved unfounded after I listened to them.
    And they're nice and comfy. My ear lobes aren't in any stress or pressure, so I can wear them for long periods without stress.
    If I had to fault them in any way, it would be they don't block external noise as much as I would like. But hey, for the price, they win hands down.

    Nice cans

    By cinedependent

    Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro Studio Headphones:

    My first job was in radio, and like the headphones I used there, these headphones really surround the ear well. They eliminate more background noise, at some frequencies than my active noise canceling ones do. They are extremely comfortable to wear and off amazing sound, from top to bottom.

    Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro Studio Headphones:

    I recently lost my in ears due to an unfortunate accident so I decided it was time for cans. I also started mixing in headphones because of unfortunate mix times in our apartment.

    I have focal cms 40's and are exceedingly pleased with them. So logically I wanted to try the focal spirits. I did. I was underwhelmed. They were very uncomfortable, stiff, and didn't blow me away with sound. I don't know how this even works, but the stereo image seems richer in the Beyerdynamics and the highs / lows more balanced. I feel like I have already achieved greater mix translation by easily getting an idea for how they make stuff sound. The only catch is, they have a tendency to make harsher frequencies slightly more pleasant than they would be on other systems. Keep an ear out for that.

    On a comfort level, they cannot be beat. I wear them for eight hour stretches at work.

      I use these for detail listening of classical CDs and my own recorded classical guitar tracks. They may not be the best headphone out there, but for the price their quality is second to none. Dependable, and they don't mislead your ears. They are very comfortable but a little heavier than many brands.

      Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro Studio Headphones:

      These headphones are as comfortable with prolonged wear as my Sennheiser HD650, even while wearing glasses. The closed nature of the headphones allows for reasonable sound isolation from both directions at moderate volumes, with very good overall sound quality. It can be adequately driven from my plain ole' iPhone 5 and my PC headphone jack without an amplifier (in spite of 250 ohm rating) with decent enough volume for my tastes (a modest amp did not appreciably improve the listening experience and sound quality to my ears at my preferred volumes), with different genres of music from classical to classic rock; however, I do realize that this is highly subjective, and I'm sure others may disagree and insist that nothing less than a thousand dollar amp will liberate the full potential of the headphones. ......

      Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro Studio Headphones:

      I use the DT 770s with my laptop and with my iPod 5G running Rockbox, for that extra volume boost that's needed with these. Make no mistake, these are very tough to power for most mobile devices; cell phones and stock iPods are a no-go.

      I was put off at first by the comments about how inaccurate they are, that they are too bass heavy and aren't good for studio use. I get that, they aren't reference headphones. But they make up for that by being very enjoyable for listening. Some music, like classic rock or pop for that matter will sound great but won't make these shine. Music with a lot of dynamics, a lot that's happening on different sound levels and layers, that's what makes these headphones really stand out. Listen to some Feist on these and you won't be disappointed.

      For regular listening there's not much competition in this price range. First of all these are some of the quietest headphones I've come across, they are heavenly while flying. Then there's the detail and openness in the sound. The soundstage is huge, wide, airy and soft, almost like you're in a sound insulated room with speakers, not headphones. Many headphones including the AKG K240s makes the music sound like it's happening right up close by your ear. The KT 770s however have a much wider soundstage, making the listening experience just that much more enjoyable.

      I listened to a selection of headphones while I visited B&H and nothing had a better combination of comfort, soundstage, detail and price.

      The two things I'd change about them are: just knock the edge slightly off the high frequencies, and swap the cord for an uncoiled type. The rest is perfect.

      I use this for listening and mixing.

      Things I like
      -Super solid construction, huge ear-cups, very comfortable for extended listening
      -incredible 3 dimensional , DETAILED sound
      -HUge Bass Response (DEEP a bit exaggerated,and really tight..not sloppy)
      -every single part can be ordered and replaced if broken (unlike, for example, Senneheiser 280's) so you can really keep these for a very very long time if you are handy
      -You will truly hear details of your music for the very first time

      Things I don't like
      -Slightly heavy (but that is due to quality construction)
      -HUge Bass Response (too much to properly mix unless you are doing Urban style music)
      -Treble somewhat bright, but acceptable

      Bottom line -I really , really like these.They are big AND bulky, so only for the home or studio.
      -For classical, as they are extremely detailed / revealing.Gives even orchestral music a sometimes need guttural 'kick'(which is a good thing)
      -Excellent for urban style Music.
      -Great for Rock and Country.
      -Use these for METAL and you will need a hearing aid
      -EXCEL at Jazz.
      -Phenomenal For cinematic movie music...hold on to your seat !!

      So..THESE ARE wonderful headphones, with the Caveat regarding mixing. I have the 250 Ohm model. They absolutely still work with iPod, etc, BUT your portable device will run out of volume very quickly. Better to get a headphone amp with these, but if necessary you can survive without.
      I have read that the 80 ohm has even MORE bass response, which I could not imagine.Everything I read says the 250 are more accurate than the 80 ohms. I would stay away from the 32 ohm model when choosing, although since all models use the same drivers I don't see there being a huge sonic difference between them.

      When I mix I HAVE to EQ for these phones to flatten out what I hear to later match my near-field monitors as a reference; which I am unhappy about.(I do see these being used for checking a mastered mix, but never as a replacement for speakers)

          I bought these for primarily movies, not music. Coupled with an old Fiio E5 headphone amp, the sound is more than adequate for my needs. I have yet to really test all the headphones have to offer, but I'm satisfied so far. 1 star docked for a couple of reasons--the ear cups make me sweat all too easily; I've never had that problem before. And I wish the cable were detachable.

I've been an audio professional for years, and I've tried many expensive headphones. But you know what? For the price, nothing compares. And a big "UP" to BHPhotoVid for getting them here as promised. Fantastic!!

                    These cans are awesome, I use them as another source to listen to at home mixing, or live. The amount of isolation they have is just perfect enough to mix a live show and even just give your ears a break with the headphone amp turned down. The coiled cable is convienient, but sometimes you don't want to have to stretch it to get the length you need.

                        Pros:
                        * Mostly flat response
                        * Affordable (compared to other audiophile gear, and the like)
                        * Enjoyable to listen to
                        * Comfortable
                        * Great for the home setup or studio
                        Cons:
                        * Not-so-portable. I like to elaborate that it is possible to use portablely, but it is a bit awkward
                        * Some complain of V-shape response, but I disagree personally
                        * Not the easiest to drive. I use a JDSLabs CMoyBB and its driven very well. But I must elaborate, that if you do not intend on amping these, this *isn't* the pair of cans for you

                          Using these for my home studio. Flattest response I've heard at this pricepoint. Having used these in different recording studios over the years (or versions of these), its really great to now have these in the studio as a nice A/B for my monitors, or for the times when the kids are asleep but I need to do some tracking or mixing. Really comfortable, even for long sessions (4-6 hours). I bought a small headphone amp for these but ended up not needing them as my mixing board provides enough power to drive them - and the board sounded better than the headphone amp. I only mention that to say if you plan to use these with a powered mixing board, wait to see their performance before you buy a headphone amp.

                            It took me a couple of days to transition from some cheap headphones to DT 770 Pro, after that you just get adjusted to them and the sound really becomes so clear and the bass is deep. I do a lot of mixing / virtual instruments production, this is definitely the best pair I have ever owned.

                            Very comfortable and the sound quality is what you'd expect from BeyerDynamic, excellent! My only complaint with the headphones is that you cant rotate the ears more to do one ear listening. Aside from that they are fantastic!
