Beyerdynamic DT-770 Pro
I got the DT-770 Pro as support for mixing because unfortunately, I do not currently have the opportunity to edit my room acoustically for my studio monitors. So now I use the speakers for the regular work, while I use the headphones for the delicate places where I have to work very accurately. To anticipate it: For this purpose, the headphones work great for me!
It was particularly important to me that the entire spectrum is reproduced as unadulterated as possible so that I can make the most accurate decisions, especially in the bass range. The headphones deliver this without any problems.
Whether the advertised transmission range of 5 – 35000 Hz is maintained, I can not say, I don’t think any human could hear past 20000 Hz; however, all frequencies that are heard for me are played back, and it goes damn deep!
The Beyerdynamic DT-770 Pro is a closed-back studio headphone that won’t take long to convince you of its many strengths. The comfort and build are impeccable; the sound is balanced to a high degree with many precise frequencies.
- Good and in my opinion very neutral sound
- Large frequency spectrum range
- Valuable processing
- Excellent price / performance ratio
DT-770 PRO (250 Ohms) Review
Due to the closed design, which I had also chosen deliberately, you can concentrate very well on mixing, since the ears are very well shielded and the sound isolation is highly effective. The headphones stay perfectly without being too tight, even with glasses on. The isolation is of excellent quality – these studio headphones isolates much external noise and people around you can barely have a taste of what you listen. It is therefore perfect both to recording and monitoring if necessary a mix done with monitoring speakers, or to record a singer who uses it in listening.
The rendering seems pretty equal, that’s what we are looking for a studio headset. Much to a popular belief, the DT-770 Pro is not a Hi-Fi headphone (which flatters the bass excessively); it is not made for that.
After long usage I do not feel any discomfort or auditory fatigue; I sometimes work for ten hours in a row, but I do take occasional breaks of 10 minutes every two hours.

The sound is fantastic, very balanced, genuinely sensational for a closed headphone. The comfort is very good, the upholstery is not made of faux leather (which becomes sticky over time and causes perspiration) but of a “fabric-like” material, which is very pleasant on the skin, so that the sweating is limited. In winter, virtually no sweating! The ear-enclosing construction does not create any unpleasant pressure on the ears. The weight is relatively low (290 g). You can wear it for hours without getting uncomfortable.
Advantages & Disadvantages of Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO
The only drawback I can find is that the cable cannot be replaced. The upholstery of the earpiece and the holder are interchangeable, unfortunately, a cable break in this case would lead directly out. Therefore you have to buy another piece.
For some, it might sound like a lot of money, but I can only highly recommend these headphones. They are more of a purchase for life, as long as you take care of them properly.
I’ve been using the DT-770 Pro both for listening and audio monitoring for almost 3 weeks, all I could say is they are excellent for both! The audio playback is linear, and if you get used to the pitfalls of mixing with headphones, you get quite useful results. Because these headphones aren’t as linear as a top-tier reference headphpones, they cannot be an alternative to professional monitors, but for a lot of people, they are an excellent stand-in for critical listening.
