Received my 80 ohm DT-770 from Amazon today. It was much cheaper than Drop's offer and was delivered to me overnight free (Prime). After 2 hour break-in, I tested it against my usual test tracks. I think I just got my perfect office cans! Mids are similar to my HD600 without the shouty upper mids of the Senn. Mid-bass is fast and tight, unlike the flabby and slow mid-bass of my HD6XX. Mid-bass is faster on DT-770 than the HD600. Bass digs deeper and more nuanced than both Senns. Vocals are not recessed like the M1060, but not buttery smooth like HD6XX. Highs are crisp but not as nuanced as the HD600 or my AKG K702 Pro. The K702 extends higher and has more sparkle than the DT-770. DT-770's highs are strident up at around 8KHz, but not sibilant. Stacey Kent was not sibilant while singing So Nice over DT-770 (but was sibilant over my B&W 705s2 speakers). I chose the 80 ohm version upon reading/watching reviews which stated that the 80 ohm is the least strident among the three variants. One other thing, this DT-770 has wider soundstage than the HD600. Unbelievable for closed back. But it doesn't image as well as the HD600 which has pinpoint accuracy across its soundstage. The DT-770 is better with EDM/Metal/Rock than both Senns.

I have the 80 ohm and SHP-9500 (cheaper brother of Fidelio). The DT-770 80 ohm is leaps and bounds better than the SHP-9500. The 9500 is muddy, bright and gritty compared to the DT-770. I heard Fidelio is muddier and much more bassy than SHP9500. I bought the SHP-9500 to gift to someone. It has no place in my collection :-)

This is a great deal, when not up against Black Friday. Just bought 2 pair from ProAudioStar for $119 each.

Thanks Drop for this DT 770 Pro drop. It gave me some good insight for my first closed back HP. The 80 ohm is $129 at Amazon which ships right away vs. $145 here. BTW the DT 1770 Pro is $388 Amazon vs $385 for Drop's DT 177X Go. I heard from reviews that the new generation Beyerdynamic drivers such as in DT 1770 Pro has somewhat single-note sub-bass. I'm afraid the 177X Go has similar issue. Anyone heard or experienced this?

There are too many variables to tell whether or not the balanced cable made a difference in sound. I can say that the removable (and shorter) cable makes life with the headphones easier. I travel with them and need not worry about breaking the cable and thus ruining the headphones

Why do you convert them to balance in the first place ?

Are the 80 ohm black the actual limited edition ones or is it just a picture?

I just learned I've had my pair of DT770 Pro 250 ohm for 7 years to the month as of writing this. I don't recall lower impedance models being available at the time, so I've always paired this with a good amp where possible (these seem to wear out fast for some reason). Right now I have them plugged into a USB powered DAC, which is probably a little underpowered, but seems fine otherwise. Basically, these are my go to cans while working, and my longest lasting pair of high quality headphones. I've had other people listen to them and find their audio reproduction and sound stage to be great, especially for the price. I use to be a Sennheiser guy until I got these, and I haven't found a pair of headphones in this price range be comparable. And that includes today, on a 7 year old pair of headphones. So I can give a good long term view of them. I've replaced the pads once since getting them. You can find replacements pretty easily. I let the originals go way too long, to be honest, as they came apart as I took them off. But putting on the new ones was no problem, and it completely renewed the feel. I probably should replace them a bit more frequently, though. I'd consider this a consumable wear item. The plastic bits with L and R have cracked, but it doesn't seem to impact their fit at all. Plastic gets brittle over time, and after 7 years of abuse, they're still holding together just fine. The wiring seems to be holding up quite well. No issues with stress or anything. The coiled wire has stretched a little at the ends of the coiling from the weight of the cable over time, but there's no concerning issues there. If you listen to highly compressed audio, you will notice with these headphones.

Can someone confirm how these feel with glasses on? I've only seen 2 reviews that touch on this, so I'm looking for more opinions on this.

I wear glasses and the headphones do not bother me. Contrary to other headphones, these are very comfortable to wear over longer periods of time.

Just my 250 ohms from the most recent drop (10/4/19) and it seems as though the right side has more volume and 'umph' and the left. Anyone else got a balance issue? Left driver sounds shallow whereas the right is nice and full. Expected better QA for $200 cans... Two pairs of cheap sennheisers and one audio-technica and haven't had issue with those. Update two hours later. It got worse. 100% a waste of my time and money.
