THE reference for headphones
The beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80 is a dynamic, closed-back headset with an 80-ohm impedance rating for tracking and monitoring applications, and it has been a firm fixture of studios across the world since it was released. It provides a good impulse response and outstandingly detailed sound, but to do this it should ideally be paired with a headphone amplifier and is therefore an ideal candidate for studio use. This model is likely to be somewhat limited in terms of volume when combined with smartphones (the 32-ohm variant provides a better alternative here).
Quality made in Germany
Der Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 80 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 80’s frequency response is also ideal for simply listening to music, which makes it a great choice as a hi-fi headset.
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 80 comes complete with a three-metre straight 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 346 grams (including the cable), the DT 770 Pro 80 is astonishingly light despite its robust construction, and that means it can be worn without “fatigue” setting in during long studio sessions.
