Let’s take an in-depth look at the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250 Ohm headphones. In this article, we talk you through the DT770 Pro unboxing experience and share our initial thoughts on these closed-back 250 Ohm headphones. 

Quick Answer: The Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250 Ohm headphones offer a very similar experience to our beloved DT990s. A wide sound stage, increased noise isolation, and a tighter low end makes them better suited to noisier working environments.

Why Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro Headphones?

If you’re familiar with our content, you’ll know we’re huge fans of the Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro 250 Ohm headphones. They are well known and highly regarded for mixing and mastering work in a controlled environment like our studio.

However, we don’t always have the luxury of working in a studio or quiet room. So, we’re hoping the closed-back design of the DT770s will offer improved isolation and give us a bit more on the low end when working from home or on the go.

Break the security seal, open the top flap, and you’ll find the DT770s nestled in the box at an angle. Compliance information and 2-year warranty documentation are packed below, along with a fabric dust cover/soft case for the headphones.

Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro Headphone Cable & Connector

The Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro has the same 3-meter cable found on the DT990s, featuring a combination of coiled and straight sections.

The cable terminates in a 1/8″ connector with a screw-on 1/4″ adapter. Everything has a well-made, robust feel; Beyerdynamic clearly hasn’t tried to cut costs anywhere with these headphones.

Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro Ear Cups

The ear cups on the DT770 are covered with the same soft velvet material found on the DT990s. At first glance, they look a little bit bigger than the ear cups on the DT990s, but it could just be that they aren’t worn in yet.

Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250 Ohm Headphones Fit & Weight

Coming in at only 20 g heavier than the DT990 Pros, there wasn’t really a noticeable difference in weight. The cupping effect was a bit heavier, but this is likely due to the fact these headphones are brand new. We find they take around 10 hours of use to break in.

The DT770s are comfortable to wear, and you don’t notice them anywhere near as much as other, less well-designed headphones. At 270 g, they’re pretty lightweight, helping to keep them comfortable for longer durations.

Testing The Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 250 Ohm Headphones

We ran some music through our Yamaha AG06 mixer to get a quick first impression of the DT770 Pros. Right away, we noticed the same wide soundstage associated with the DT990s but with a slightly tighter low end.

In terms of impedance and volume settings, the DT770s are very similar to the DT990s, so mixer headphone volume settings and the overall sound quality were pretty consistent.
