From the Pro X series

The beyerdynamic DT 700 Pro X is a premium headset for monitoring applications that features a closed-back, over-ear design and is part of the Pro X series launched by the company in 2021. It features sound insulating technology to effectively shut out ambient noise, and its new drivers (developed in Heilbronn, Germany) deliver optimum sound quality. The visually appealing ear pads ensure a high level of comfort, with the added bonus that they can also be replaced if necessary, as can the padding on the headband. The DT 700 Pro X has a single cable connection located on the left side, and users can choose between two removable mini-XLR cables – 1.8 m and 3 m long, respectively, and each equipped with a 3.5 mm stereo jack and a 6.3 mm adapter. Of course, the scope of delivery also includes the obligatory transport case.

Newly developed drivers

The DT 700 Pro X is characterised by its newly developed, highly efficient Stellar.45 driver system, which delivers a powerful sound with extremely high definition that remains free from any audible distortion even at higher volume levels. A mandatory feature for headphones in monitoring applications is the elimination of outside noise – and the DT 700 Pro X excels here with an impressive 20 dBA rating. Its low impedance of just 45 ohms is also noteworthy, since this makes the DT 700 Pro X suitable for a wide range of applications and ensures a satisfying level of playback volume when used in conjunction with mobile devices.

Secure, snug, and comfortable

Besides boasting excellent sound quality, the DT 700 Pro X premium headphones are also very comfortable to wear, so “fatigue” won’t set in even when they are worn for extended periods of time. The padded spring steel headband with an optimum contact pressure of 5.3 N keeps the DT 700 Pro X with its soft velour ear pads perfectly in place throughout those prolonged and action-packed recording sessions. Users can thus concentrate fully on playing their instrument or on getting the best possible vocal performance without having to keep adjusting their headphones – which of course makes this headset a particularly attractive option for use in recording environments where it has to be worn for prolonged periods of time.

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.

Perfect for monitoring

The closed-back design of the beyerdynamic DT 700 Pro X makes the headset perfect for monitoring in recording applications, since it provides efficient sound isolation to eliminate ambient noise. This also makes it a great choice for use in DJ booths and at FOH mixing desks – and its high-grade materials mean that the DT 700 Pro X is easily robust enough for use outside the studio. What is more, this headset is also a great alternative for live musicians who are looking for an on-stage monitoring solution but don’t want to wear in-ear monitors.

Holy Hell the High End!!
Maiku Tachibana 26.02.2022
So my previous headphone experience is using a set of Pioneer SE-MHR5s for casual listening, and an old set of Sennheiser HD 380 Pros for Mixing. I was very excited to get a new pair of headphones for mixing music, as well as practical use such as voice calls and games.

Sound: This is why I ended up returning the headphones, the high end just sounded harsher than anything I'd experienced before, giving me ear fatigue after only a few minutes of listening. After applying some neutralising EQ I found music more listenable, and almost decided to keep them, but Discord Calls and Games I ended up finding equally unenjoyable, to the point of switching back to my old headphones for those activities. I want to point out that there is a great deal of clarity with these headphones, everything is nicely separated and generally I can tell that the sound quality is very good, but these headphones actively pained me to use so I can't excuse them.

Comfort: I really can't knock the comfort, I'm almost sad to see them go, they're incredibly comfortable and I wore them for a whole day with no ear irritation.

Quality: Solidly built, however they're a little inflexibile which is irritating, great for removable parts though, should become an industry standard practice!

Side Note: As these are quite new headphones, you will have a hard time finding good profiles for EqualizerAPO or Peace EQ, they haven't been made yet it seems.

Overall: Honestly I'm disappointed I have to send these back, they're very comfortable and good quality, but the harshness of the high end and the general heavy-handedness of the bass left me feeling fatigued and depressed about even listening to music, maybe you'll have a better time with them if you're used to high end sound but both of my previous headphones were more bass-oriented and the transition was too much! I'm thinking about making my next pair a set of Audio-Technica M50Xs, as I've heard the bass on those is great and the highs are more muted, which suits me just fine.

Well done Beyerdynamic!
SoundGame 01.12.2021
New pro x series was perfectly designed. The ear cup was extremely comfort, softer and thicker than my DT1990, the metal frame was curved on the pro x, so it won't be damage your desk or easily scratch the edge. It's one of the best closed back headphones for seriously recording session, the noise reduction was over the top. Well done , its still build like a tank.

Good but overpriced
Kiiro 13.10.2022
Comparing this headphone to Philips Fidelio X2HR and Beyerdynamic DT770 PRO.

First impression is that it's a stellar craftmanship, feels high quality and is a step up from the DT770 PRO in terms of build quality.
One thing I absolutely HATED with DT770 PRO was the cord, it's stiff and non-compliant (and too long). The cord(s) coming with DT700 PRO X is much much better, it's fairly soft and very compliant, it also transfers less sound from the cord into the ear cups.
The foam in the ear pads feels more comfortable than DT770 PRO.
I've been wearing the headphones for about an hour now and they still feel comfortable on my head. I use glasses as well and it doesn't feel like the headphones are trying to crush my head.
It feels like the DT700 PRO X has a tiny bit more sound leaking out/in than the DT770 PRO's.

Now when it comes to the actual sound it's a bit of a disappointment for me. I only use headphones for the enjoyment of music and such, I've been very happy with the sound of the DT770 PRO and of course X2HR.
First impression with the sound was that it's very harsh, a lot of treble with very neutral bass. It doesn't sound at all like the DT770 PRO, not even similar. You shouldn't see this headphone as an upgrade to DT770 PRO more than it's visual appearance.
Music that I'm able to enjoy with X2HR are not enjoyable with DT700 PRO X in a lot of cases. It requires a good quality source or it will really reveal how bad the sound is from the source.

I bought these headphones in hope of an upgraded DT770 PRO-experience but it's simply not. The price is not justified if you're going to use these just for enjoying music, buy the DT770 PRO's and modify it with a detachable cable if you can.

Update after three months of daily use:
This is now my daily driver. I never use my X2HR anymore.
The headphones require some burn in for sure, in the beginning the sound was almost terrible (the treble) but now the sound profile has softened a bit and is very pleasant. Bass is spot on and not overpowering, bad quality sources are terrible to listen to with these headphones as they are very detailed. The only negatives I have to comment about these headphones now are that they become uncomfortable after several hours of use (pressure on the ears, I use glasses so I'm prone to ear fatigue when using headphones.) and the high price.

Expensive but very good
Morten T 27.11.2021
These headphones are a bit expensive but the sound and build quality is great.
A good balance of: clear, defined, neutral, revealing, warm.
A pleasure to use and wear.
The phones do push a bit much on the head, but it helps to expand the head band a bit.
And the cable is nice (it soft and doesn't mess up) + can be deattached.
