beyerdynamic DT 1770 PRO: The evolution of a studio legend-pic_dt1770pro_15-07_perspective_.jpg


New reference headphones for studio and monitoring applications

With the DT 1770 PRO headphones, beyerdynamic is building on a great tradition. The new model is the next step in the evolution of the DT 770 PRO reference headphones, which have been tried and tested for decades and are an essential staple for professional users around the globe. The DT 1770 PRO meets the high requirements of musicians, sound engineers and producers who are looking for the best equipment available on the market. The new headphones are clearly positioned as a new premium model in the range of professional beyerdynamic headphones.

The systems are the driving force of all headphones. As the centrepiece they are essential for a powerful and analytical sound reproduction.The Tesla drivers are a part of the outstanding features of the closed 250 ohm headphones.
These drivers, which are being used in professional studio headphones for the first time, are characterised by a high magnetic flux density for significantly enhanced performance and accuracy.

A detailed and also balanced sound is essential in a recording studio. The DT 1770 PRO easily meets these requirements.
Tesla 2.0 systems offer maximum efficiency and ensure precise, completely distortion-free sound quality with the finest resolution and impressive spatial properties even at very powerful output levels. The DT 1770 PRO are the ideal headphones for live applications as the extremely high efficiency drivers ensure a perfect listening experience in loud environments.

A triple-layer compound membrane in the DT 1770 PRO reduces unwanted partial vibrations to allow a previously unknown level of brilliance in the reproduction of overtones, as well as thoroughly impressive bass reproduction. Sound events of any kind are reproduced precisely, and a dynamic range from pianissimo to fortissimo is recreated effortlessly.

In addition to its sound, the new DT 1770 PRO offers an attractive design. The clear, aesthetic contours reflect the heritage of the legendary DT 770 PRO, while numerous details add fresh accents. Fine materials ensure durability and captivate viewers with their exclusive look and feel.

The comfort plays a decisive role in mixing and mastering applications. High quality materials and the ideal headband pressure of the DT 1770 PRO ensure maximum comfort and a perfect fit for the daily studio work.
The exchangeable ear cushions are covered with soft velour or high-quality artificial leather. Despite the remarkably high ambient noise reduction, the circumaural ear cups fit so comfortably that even long sessions will seem like a pleasant, relaxing listening experience. The sturdy spring-steel headband is adjustable and equipped with exchangeable padding. Thanks to the wide range of accessories, the DT 1770 PRO dynamic premium headphones are ready to tackle any audio task. High-quality accessories are part of the basic version – the included coiled cable and the included straight cable are single-sided and securely attached to a lockable Mini XLR connector. A hard case can protect the headphones and accessories during storage or transportation.

Whether you are recording, mixing, monitoring or mastering, whether for studio or live use – the beyerdynamic DT 1770 PRO is the perfect solution for professional users who demand maximum quality and the best in both sound and design. Like the classic beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO, the new standard for professional headphones is made by hand in Germany. The recommended retail price for the beyerdynamic DT 1770 PRO is 599 Euro.


The DT 1770 PRO will be available from September in specialist stores and on Headphones, Headsets, Microphones by beyerdynamic. It can be tested at the beyerdynamic booth at the IFA (hall 1.2, booth 204) in Berlin from September 4th to 9th, 2015.

Here for the gear
Definately interested in these headphones. I looooove my dt880s. I have two pair and was already looking into getting some 770s. Guess I'll wait for these to be released and reviewed.

Looks very nice. Happy owner of DT990 here but I'd love a nice closed-back for recording.

Phew, 600€. Quite rich.

I love my DT880s, but I think that might be a bit too much for a pair of cans. Just my 2c.

i love my 880s, find 770s to be a bit bright in comparison. i prefer open back for true sound reference but id love an accurate pair of closed back cans... havent found 1 pair yet... bought m70x's last week and took them back, they sounded like crap

Saw price

Super bummed out... :(

Even $500 US and maybe... But this is waay out of my range. I am not complaining that they should charge less by the way, I think BD are *very* beautifully constructed. The 770 sounds quite nice and is built like a damn tank.

I was hoping that these were meant to occupy that price point... Oh well.

same here, very excited about these, got my beloved DT 770 (that I need to replace one of the ear fom because of usage) but I must agree that the price is a little pushed. Just hope they are better than the DT770 (less highs) and that they sound incredible and deliver sonic detail, they manage low end greatly and are just the best BeyerD has come up with so I can justify the price. Thank God they now come up with wire that can be unplug like AKG have started this trend (if i'm not mistaking). Been using the AKG Q701 and love them. Hope these will be outstanding :-)

I'll wait to see if some music store here in Montreal will get them so I can have a listen :-)

Reviews?

Has anyone heard these, yet?

I'm seriously considering buying these on a whim. I really like the idea of having a very high quality pair of headphones that I don't need to switch between mixing/tracking, etc.

And these are an absolute bargain compared to the Audeze LCD-XC headphones.

I think they'll stay.

Everyone seems to be filling that $600 & up "improved studio cans" niche that opened up a few years ago.

Impedance 250 ohm instead off 32 ohm, does that mean that i need something a little more powerful to drive this beauty ?

Can't wait to try this one. I read it doesn't have that bright boost that many other Beyerdynamic cans have, i hope the reviewer was right. I can't understand how anyone can bear the harsh sounding 770's. Unless you have a thing for treble, loud treble.

Harsh?

Maybe it was the amp, dac or whatever you had feeding them?

This lady also disagrees with you. I think she knows a thing or two about good cans.

Maybe it's her taste.
No myself and 2 other full time producers who's ears i rate very good agree. They have boosted highs, quite a suprising amount of boost too. We're all 44+ and have somewhat 20 years experience mixing.

The last time i listened to it was on my apogee symphony headphone output, just to be sure that the previous dac didn't color. It really was the beyerdynamic coloring.

Don't know about the mid tier models but their 'flagship', the T1, is indeed bright. No idea why these guys keep releasing expensive (and otherwise capable) high end cans so oddly tuned (HD 800 comes also in mind).

Guyz none of cans are linear ... if you want them to be then use sonarworks headphone calibration for exemple ... in person , when i change monitors or headphones , it is because its like changing perspective , like differnt glasses with diffrent focus....

And closed cans are not for critical listening usually , open one gonna serve that purpose well

Well, I can't say I agree. I have quite a lot of mileage with the DTs 770 and 990 and can't say that they're harsh. Far from it. They do have a big dependency for a good amp. Driving them with most sound cards doesn't do them justice. Not familiar with the Symphony but I assume it's a good amp, so maybe it's a matter of taste. I can't find this "coloring" you're talking about - maybe you just don't like their voicing.

I have to agree that the 770's require a decent amp to get the best from them.

Other than that the beyers are quality plus and great fitting comfort.

Cheers

I didn't used to find the 770's harsh, but then I got the 880's and when I jump back to the 770's I find them a touch harsh with too much bass.

I found 770's great for many years though so maybe it's just something people get used to?

770's are bright.. not harsh but they are bright vs 880's which imo over the best overall balance from beyerdynamic . 990's are just like 770s, boosted lows and high vs balance..
i stick with 2 pair of cans, 880s and jubilate's

ive really been liking Fischer Audio Jubilate headphones. under 200 and extremely clean and rather balanced. the Fischer FA-003 Ti are damn nice too and right at $200

Hi there,

Have any of you used these for recording/mixing/tracking?

I'm really interested in hearing what the audio engineering community thinks of this product. The Hi-Fi forums seem to love them.

Cheers,
-PB
