VERDICT
Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • Musicians and mix engineers will be impressed with the hi-res audio quality: It's big and warm, with crisp highs and a rich bass.
  • The fit against your ears feels plush and secure. The DT 1770 Pro comes with swappable velour and leatherette ear pads.
  • These over-ear headphones include two long removable cables and a hard-shell carry case.

CONS

  • You might start to feel some pressure on your scalp after donning the DT 1770 Pro for long sessions.
  • The headphones are somewhat bulky.
  • You won't find the low end turbo-boosted on these reference headphones.
Designed for use in a recording studio or for monitoring applications, the DT 1770 Pro closed-back headphones from Beyerdynamic deliver an accurate frequency response across the board. The headphones use 45 mm neodymium drivers--also known as Tesla 2.0 drivers--to enhance the details and reduce distortion. These over-ears also block out external noise. The adjustable headband is made of spring steel and replaceable padding, while the exchangeable ear cushions are covered with soft velour and artificial leather. Other accessories include a durable carry case, a straight cable almost 10 feet in length, and a second cable more than 16 feet long with a coiled midsection.

[T]he DT 1770 Pro does its job—if you have gobs of sub-bass in your mix, you will hear it, but not at the expense of the rest of the frequency range...unless, of course, that's how your mix is balanced in the first place.

Even though it is a bit expensive, the Beyerdynamic DT 1770 Pro is an excellent option for musicians and engineers who prefer to listen to sounds through their own pair of headphones, and want excellent frequency response.

For once ear pad pressure against my noggin was commendably low. As high-end headphones go, the DT 1770 Pro is right up there with the easiest to wear for extended periods of time.

My first test track was Gregory Portman’s “Hey Laura” lossless from CD and the voice immediately struck me as authentic and very well separated. Rendering is life-like and the 1770 failed not to portray smallest emotive cues in the performance.

When I tested the headphones with a wide variety of music, from Eric Clapton to Bach, the 1770’s never stepped wrong once. The ambient noise reduction made the incredibly high dynamic range of these headphones shine, even with the ruckus going on in the background.

You can definitely keep these headphones in the studio. But you'll also want to use a portable amplifier of some sort if you're looking to get the most out of them. Sure, you could drive these cans off of lower power sources if you wanted—but why would you?

Well, we ran them through their paces, first letting them burn in for a bit. Then we threw everything we had at them, keeping in mind that they aren’t built to boost bass or play Call of Duty. The first thing we noticed is the soundstage- big and broad- and then the underlying power behind them.
