MIXED REVIEWS: OVERAL: GOOD HEADPHONES.
on 18 February 2017
There were many mixed reviews on this particular pair, I thought I would clear it up a little.
I'm a musician/producer who uses these Beyerdynamic DT770 24/7 with composition software like Logic and Pro Tools, and heavy listening use.
SOUND QUALITY 9/10: BD are well established with the control over sound quality, they've been in the game for decades! These headphones deliver well with a clear distinction between the frequencies. These do not over exaggerate the bass parts, so these are not suggested for bass junkies, only an unbiased clean sound. there isn't a huge amount of noise cancellation from the build, but with the volume turned up this isn't a problem.
BUILD: 8/10 - Well built, BD have allowed most parts to be replaced, visible by the screw works, buttoned headband and gold plated jack. there could be a little less plastic bulk, but the overall design is industrialist and practical.
COMFORT 6.5/10 - a hot topic with these headphones, it is true, they are tight around the temple areas, particularly when eating, or using them for several hours in one sitting. However with toilet breaks and fresh air, its a small price to pay with these headphones. They are well padded around the ears, and eventually the tension in the headband slacks becoming more pleasant. The large over-ear pads are not made for resting round your neck, so perhaps portability is and issue. Overall they are sturdy and sit on my head well.
