I’ve been using the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 Ohm headphones for awhile now, and I think it’s fair that I can give an honest opinion on these headphones.

(For those who want the short answer, I do recommend these headphones, however at times they hurt my head a bit!)

My living situation changed, and I was also wanting to start streaming on Twitch, so I wanted to get a decent pair of headphones so I could hear my music accurately while making mixing decisions.

Over my years of being a music producer, I’ve always seen the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro headphones mentioned. I always took a look at the product page and saw the reviews were pretty much 5 star for the most part.

So I always kept this in the back of my head, just in case I was going to buy a decent pair of headphones for music production.

So let’s start with some things to cover:

Build Quality

These are built in Germany, so you know they’re going to be solid in design. It’s nice knowing a lot of the parts are replaceable like the earpads and headband.

One thing I don’t particularly like, though, is the wires to each earpiece are exposed.

When producing music, it’s really easy for things to break if you’re getting up/down to record a lot etc. (They haven’t broken on me yet, however, I’m really gentle on my stuff!)

The velour earpads are definitely comfy are super breathable! – That sweaty feeling when taking off headphones is gross lol, so you shouldn’t experience that feeling when using these headphones.

I like the cable length on the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro headphones. It’s just long enough to get up and do some recording/walking around, but not so long that you don’t know what to do with the cable!

Sound Quality

At first, I felt these headphones were lacking in terms of drive in the mids. I always felt the audio was being held back just a bit, emphasizing the lows and highs. This left me always feeling I wanted to turn up my volume more and more.. but you always got to be careful of your hearing and loudness, especially with headphones.

But! After a few months of using them and ‘burning in the headphones’ from usage, the sound of these headphones has grown on me. I actually quite like them!

When recording tutorials/courses, the audio does not bleed into my microphone (that could be because I’m using an awesome dynamic microphone – the Shure SM7b), but I’m sure they prevent a lot of noise leakage into the mic!

Conclusion

All-in-all, these are a great entry-level audiophile headphone.

Headphones can definitely get expensive, and this is a great place to get your feet wet with a decent pair of cans!
