A Little History – Beyerdynamic GmbH and Co. KG now known as Beyerdynamic was founded by Eugen Beyer in 1924 in the town of Berlin, Germany.  It is family owned and they are manufacturers of microphones, headphones, wireless audio systems, and conference systems.  Eugen Beyer’s first products that he produced were loudspeakers for film places in 1924.  At the end of the 1930s, he produced the very first pair of Dynamic Headphones.  But production came to a stop during War War Two. Then in 1948 Beyerdynamic started afresh in Heilborn. 

Decades passed with many new products developed by Beyerdynamic which led them to produce the two sets of headphones that we will be discussing today. The materials and component parts used for the DT770 series are painstakingly made by hand and can be replaced if necessary. 

These products are extremely versatile with a variety of accessories to meet your application.  They are built to last, yet they are lightweight and comfortable to wear over long periods of use. The highs of these products shoot out like angel trumpets. They do not have a distorted, grainy, or harsh sound to them.  They are not fatiguing to the ear.  The treble detail to all of the Beyerdynamic headphones is amazing.

If you like soundstage but do not want to wear open headphones, then these bad boys are your new best friends. Like the 80 ohm version before them, the sound stage is massive and took the sound from the previous model and enhanced it even more. 

The DT770 80 Ohm headphones are an ideal choice for a range of studio applications.  They are well suited for monitoring and enjoyable home listening. They have lower power requirements than the 250 ohm, but the sound may be too low for non-amplified devices.  The DT770 80 ohm headphones are ideal for those days when you have band practice or wish to go to the studio, whereas the DT770 250 ohm are best suited for used at home or at the office to use with low frequency devices such as your laptop, phone, tablets of portable music player.

If you are not a big fan of treble detail, then you may want to avoid studio headphones altogether and get something more consumer-orientated and warmer. However, I would suggest buying the DT770 250 ohm for home, office, and gaming use. If you are along the lines of a studio producer or sound technician I would then suggest that you buy the Dt770 80-ohm headphones. The DT770 250 ohm compared to the DT770 80 ohm are a bit flatter but more or less in the same signature ballpark.  The 80 ohm is a touch boomier in the bass if that is your style.  Overall you get an exciting and engaging listen from both sets of headphones with plenty of speed and detail.
