THE reference for headphones

The beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 250 is a dynamic, closed-back headset with a 250-ohm impedance rating for tracking and monitoring applications, and it has been a firm fixture of studios across the world since it was released. The headset’s high impedance ensures a top-level impulse response and outstandingly detailed sound, but to do this it requires a high-performance headphone amplifier – which means it is immediately destined for professional recording studios. This model’s suitability for use with smartphones is limited, however, since only low volume levels are then possible (the 80-ohm and particularly the 32-ohm variants are an ideal alternative here).

Quality made in Germany

The beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 250 is an over-ear headset, but thanks to its soft, replaceable velour ear pads, both a secure fit and a high level of comfort are ensured even during extended use. It features a single cable connection on the left side, which means it can be put on and taken off frequently without getting caught up in the cable, while the robust and adjustable spring steel headband with its soft padding also makes for excellent durability. And in keeping with beyerdynamic’s constant commitment to quality, the DT 770 Pro has always been hand-built in Germany.

A studio legend

The DT 770 Pro is the closed-back model in beyerdynamic’s DT range, which comprises the 770, 880, and 990 Pro models, and it features a diffuse-field equalized frequency response and offers both maximum flexibility and a detailed sound together with effective ambient noise suppression. All of this makes it a popular choice for monitoring applications and for analysing mixes. The DT 770 Pro accurately reproduces the entire frequency range, lending power and precision to the low end while also delivering clarity and detail in the treble range. The mid frequencies are not 100% linear, however (after all, that would be a little too much to ask at this price point). In addition to studio applications, the DT 770 Pro 250’s frequency response is also ideal for simply listening to music, which makes it a great choice as a hi-fi headset.

About beyerdynamic

beyerdynamic was founded in Berlin in 1924 as a manufacturer of cinema loudspeakers. In 1937, Eugen Beyer developed the DT 48, the first set of dynamic headphones, followed two years later by the M 19 dynamic microphone. After the Second World War, the company moved to Heilbronn, Germany, and now also has a US subsidiary with headquarters in Farmingdale, New York. beyerdynamic's most popular products traditionally include headphones and microphones for both live and studio use, and the company also has a strong presence in the consumer and conference technology sectors as well as in the field of installation microphones, interpreter consoles, and tour guide systems.

The total package

The beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 250 comes complete with a three-metre coiled cable with a soldered 3.5 mm mini-jack, and the cable can be replaced with a little bit of technical prowess. All of the other components (particularly the ear pads) are also replaceable, and the scope of delivery additionally includes a screw-threaded 6.3 mm jack adapter and a drawstring pouch with a transparent label field. At just 375 grams (including the cable), the DT 770 Pro 250 is astonishingly light despite its robust construction, and that means it can be worn without “fatigue” setting in during long studio sessions.

Great audio quality and comfort for long periods of time

These headphones offer me a lot of flexibility of use - both in recording and mixing. They're exquisitely well-made and have a great sound. For mixing and mastering purposes you'd do well to consider the 880s and 990s, as their semi-open and open nature suits the task better. However, for my current situation where I need a set of headphones to fit both roles, these do it to perfection.

I've been looking for a set of studio cans for a while, and have always heard amazing things about the 770s, 880s, and 990s. Initially I was having a hard time figuring out which one of those would be best for me. I wanted a pair of headphones that I could simultaneously record with (meaning, with minimal spill), and that I could mix and master with.

After a bit of EQ I got them to sound more natural and a bit more neutral. The 770s have a bit of a fame for strident highs. While I don't exactly agree that it is overbearing, the higher frequencies did indeed carry an extra power, which is something I don't have a particular taste for. After running some tests, I EQed them to taste by raising the lower frequencies by just a bit, as well as lowering the higher frequencies. Just a touch of gain adding and reduction here and there, and after that, they were good to go for me.

One word of warning for you is to really check the impedance for your needs. The 250 Ohm version is reported to have better clarity especially when it comes to dynamics transparency, and needs to be amped properly. For mobile day-to-day use, the 32 Ohm version would be your best bet, easier to amp to get you to where you want to be in terms of volume, at the very slight cost of detail. As for the 80 Ohm version, that one is usually selected for recording musicians (say drummers) who need a bit of extra volume for when recording louder instruments.

Either way, the claims of quality from everyone who recommended a pair Beyerdynamics are definitely well-founded.

До этого 2 года слушал и работал в Sennhiser HD 180. После них немного давит на голову, но быстро привыкаешь. Внешние звуки не слышишь, Детальность лютейшая. Бас мягкий, обещанного "цыканья" пока не наблюдаю, у сенхов его было больше)) В силу обстоятельств в наушниках могу провести целый день смотря фильмы, слушая музыку, записывая и занимаясь сведением. в этих нужно делать перерыв, раз в час точно. По ощущениям 250 Ом все же тише, на Scarlett 2i2 2gen раньше громкость была на 10 часов, сейчас стоит на 13. Но когда отдельно висят-превращаются в небольшие колонки)))
Из минусов пока цена)))

VV
One of the greatest headphones ever
Victor Valiant 27.02.2023
I've used these headphones for 3 years now, for producing, mixing & mastering and live streaming performance, and it's a really great headphone. The sub frequency accuracy is the best on this headphone, no other comes close. I have an yamaha HS8 with sub as main monitors, and this DT 770-250ohm, gives me the full subwoofer sound that I need to hear. I also have the Beyerdynamic DT-990 open model, but the sub woofer is not as full bloom. The DT-770 closed model better represents the bassreflex port on a subwoofer to make better mix decisions. It's very useful to hear clearly, the difference between an sub suitable for cinema, and sub tweaking for different music styles. And my sub tweaking mix/masters with this DT-770 have always translated well to real subwoofers, car woofers & club subs. The open model DT-990 has an wider soundstage (it sounds like there's an added stereo width, compared to the DT-770, if I compare it A-B. I recommend the closed one for accurate mixing/mastering of the low end, keeping in mind that stereo width isn't as wide due to the closed design, but stereowidth can always be added in the mix/master stage & can be checked on the multi correlation meters. But the sub sound advantage of the DT-770, cannot be attained on the DT-990 no matter what you put on the mix/master busses. For me it's DT-770 over the DT-990 on any day.

Comfort is also great, many hours, minimum fatigue. Might have to get used to the weight, clamp pressure, and curly cable weight & handling. But in a weeks time it will be second nature. My longest session wearing it was 22 hours. I have used it for nearly 3 years now, almost every day 7 days a week, 3 to 12hrs a day.
The foam pads/cushions are still good, good isolation even after all this time. Isolation for vocal booth/livestreaming/podcast is also great on these. I think about 80% of youtube/twitch streamers use the DT-770. It's very popular.

So yeah the Pro's: Mix/master translates well, great subwoofer clarity to make confident mix/master decisions on for the low end. Music mixed on these translates well to other systems. Also great for critical listening, referencing music & sound design. Accuracy & translation is great on these, but note the stereowidth, bit narrow sound width due to the closed design.

There's only one Con, the curly cable, if you sit stationary in your mix position you're fine. But if you move a lot to access different gear, any head movement more than 30cm, will reposition the cable & it's weight strain. Do that all day, & you'll get tired & annoyed by that cable. So sit still haha and try to have the cable rest on something like your desktop/table when mixing/mastering. Letting the cable hang full weight on the headphone will cause fatigue during long sessions, but is inevitable in the vocal booth where one usually stands upright.

In conclusion, I love this headphone for everything. Mixing/mastering [closed design isolates well, won't hear street noises & children playing, I can always focus on my mix/master]; monitoring instruments, sound design, critical listening, watching movies, and playing games. Also great for enjoying ASMR, or voice/video-calls, just make sure you have an good headphone preamp to drive the 250ohm to get enough gain/volume.
I use the RME Babyface Pro Fs, more than enough gain. But on my samsung phone max volume is about 70%-80% of what I would prefer as ideal. It's okay, not bad, but I'd recommend an headphone preamp if you want to drive the 250ohm version just from phone.

I'm married to these headphones, always reliable & true sound, never deceives me haha Cheers

Fenomenal headphones and yes, you can use them with the UMC204HD
MyNameIsNotBob 15.09.2021
The one thing that was unclear to me about these headphones was whether or not the Behringer umc204hd can power them. I am happy to report that not only it can power them, most of the time i don't even run them at full volume.

Other than that, they sound perfectly clear throughout the frequency spectrum. Some people complain about sibilant 's' sounds and high frequencies being too boosted, however in my experience this has not been a significant issue. I have used them for real time voice monitoring and tracking, basic mixing and I listened to music and watched a movie. Spectacular for all applications.

The build is very comfortable, robust and sturdy. Other than the shells, there are a couple of smaller pieces made of plastic, hence the 4 stars. Still, I am in love with these headphones and I am not at all afraid of them breaking.
