« "Classy Audiophile headphones" »Published on 08/01/14 at 11:19
I have done extensive research before purchasing the Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO, as I always do with all my products. After listening to these headphones from various different studios and receiving recommendations from several musicians and artists, I understood that the DT 770 PRO is something serious and still uses it since 1 year. Since I am someone who always travels and arranges music and mix on the go, the DT 770 PRO does an extremely professional job. I had previously used several headphones from different companies (not naming them), but they always failed me. After doing a basic mix with these headphones and when you playback on the monitors, you will realise how well the sound reproduction is produced by the DT 770 PRO. Though I do not suggest to get used to mixing with these, but for a beautiful start and for monitoring and listening to extreme detailing of the sounds and arrangement, this headphone stands out and is one of the best in the market. For $200, these headphones have to be grabbed immediately and are highly recommended for quality sound monitoring.
1) Innovative Bass reflex system.
2) All parts are replaceable.
3) Soft inner pads, hours of playback and monitoring will not give you the slightest fatigue.
4) Reproduces almost 90 % of sound detailing after mixing through these and playing back later on monitors.
5) One among the best Audiophile headphones for monitoring. Period.
6) Not over-priced.
1) No drawstring bag (Promised to come along with the purchase, but I did not get one).
2) The 3.5mm mini-jack is not that strong as it seems to be. A quick mis-handling can destroy the wiring. (This happened to a few of my friends and had to replace the whole headphone).
3) The box this gets shipped with is very amateur and not at all safe. To be honest, did not like the packing at all.
4) Optional ear cushions and travel bags are available for purchase on the website (Something that should have been given along with the purchase. C'mon!).
5) Slight coloration in the high mids and highs while monitoring.
6) Not recommended as recording headphones. Slight leakages noticed.
I had planned months before itself to purchase the DT 770 PRO's. After searching for something that could fit softly on my ears, playing back audio for extended hours without any irritation or fatigue, and something that can be used for mixing and monitoring at the same time, Yes, I went with the right choice, and will go for it, even if it was now.
