The DT 770 Pro is the DT 990’s little brother. Due to its qualities, you see it quite often in recording studios.
The Beyerdynamic comes in a purpose-built packaging without a lot of bells and whistles. There are three different basic versions: 32 Ohm, 80 Ohm and the 250 Ohm version tested here. For example, while the version with the lowest impedance is optimised for mobile use, this is the version for hi-fi and studio use. As you would expect from Beyerdynamic, the processing quality is very good, and from my own experience, I can say that it is very difficult to break the headphones.
These headphones are very comfortable due to their velvety ear cushions and lightweight construction. I also know people who wear glasses, and the wearing comfort for them is also good.
The signature sound is clearly typical for Beyerdynamic: it has a pronounced bass range and a decent stereo base, but I don’t like the depth gradation very much. The stereo width, on the other hand, is good. The overall sound is always slightly compressed so if I had a wish, it would be that it was a bit more dynamic. The high-frequency range is unobtrusive and the midrange could take a bit more meat – although that’s just me being very picky. In that vein, I find that the bass range is trimmed to lower low-end and the upper basses are a bit too short. All in all, these are headphones with a trend towards hi-fi.
On a more positive note, the damping characteristics are good, which makes it a solid headphone for recording.
The Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro family has become indispensable nowadays. Of course, there are more analytical tools available, but they always occupy a top position in their market segments – no matter whether it’s the 250 Ohm version tested here, the 32 Ohm version or the 80 Ohm model. Our recommendation: with 80 Ohm for recording, and 250 Ohm in the mix, you can’t go far wrong with the DT 770 Pro Family!
