5.0 out of 5 stars Godlike sound, especially sub-bass, 24 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beyerdynamic DT770 PRO Headset - 80 OHM (Electronics)
By far the best headphones I have owned, though to be fair they're by far the most expensive ones I've bought as well. I've always appreciated decent sound, and have owned headphones that have cost around £20 and £50. These are a huge step up though.

I listen to mostly electronic music, especially drum & bass, and these are excellent. The sub-bass these headphones produce is quite incredible! On other headphones I would miss out on the extremely low frequencies and the bass line would often sound incomplete or muffled. Not with these beauties. They work well at any volume, but crank them up and the bass is really quite visceral and you'd have to spend many times what these cost to recreate it through speakers. I have a £200 speaker system that doesn't come close to the low frequencies these things can put out.

I bought these for the bass reproduction and wasn't disappointed, but I listen to a wide variety of music on top of that. Listening to jazz, classical, folk, hip-hop & indie rock is still lovely. These are not a bass-heads headphone in the sense that the low end never threatens to overpower the rest of the mix. Low frequencies are sublime, but tight and controlled.

Lastly, a word on comfort. These are BY FAR the most comfortable headphones I have ever put on. I often spend most of the day at my computer, whether I'm working, gaming, watching a movie or simply listening to music, and these can be worn for hours and hours with no problem. I've certainly worn them for up to 8 hours at a time before, without even slight discomfort. Quite amazing.

Overall these are a great choice if you're prepared to spend a decent amount of money on headphones. Sounds fine with just an iPod though an amplifier really helps of course. This is the price point at which you start getting seriously diminishing returns the more you spend, and to get noticeably better sound than these you're gonna have to double your budget. Highly recommended.
