How are these for EDM? Was debating if I should get these or the V-Moda Crossfaded 2. Any help would be appreciated, currently using AT WS99 Solid bass Edition.

A little anemic with the velour because you lose some sub. With sheepskins it goes pretty deep and slightly warm, very good sub extension, but without sounding unbalanced. I like them for edm. The vmoda will probably have more bass comparable to what you have now. These will have a very different more neutral signature so keep that in mind. They sound exactly like they measure.

Anyone else getting any creaking sound when stretching these out (e.g., putting them on your head)? My left ear cup is a pretty bad offender, while the right cup is virtually silent. Sounds kinda like the leather is stretching?

I am. Well, it's more like a crackling sound in my left ear whenever sound is coming through it.

They're basically all the same high-quality cable with different terminations. So as long as you have the right connector for the headphone, just pick the termination you need (or a kit with multiple ends). I think the Beyer takes this one: https://hartaudiocables.com/collections/headphone-cables/products/hc-8-4-pin-mini-xlr-female-balanced-headphone-cable I like getting the non-stock coverings, so I have them made custom. It's a little more cost and time, but it gives a cool look.

Can anyone compare these to Emu Teak? Emu is now going at $400 for the fixed wire version. I own DT177X, not sure if I should get the emu too.

What's up with the current price? I see a lot of references to a $350 price this Summer but, right now they are showing as $450. Do these have something that the lower-priced Summer versions earlier this year didn't have? Or, is this just "supply and demand" along with transportation and general COVID surcharging?

Bought these on amazon and using them with sheepskins. For refernce my "main" headphones are DT 1990s with balanced pads and amiron wireless driver dampening foam (the same foam on these 177x). This foam bumps up the lower mids and bass and cuts the 8k spike. I've got to say, aside from more bass and ever so slightly recessed mids compared to the 1990, this gives an otherwise nearly identical sound. They're really really great. It sounds exactly like how i would expect a closed back version of my 1990s with different dampening to sound. I've tried 1770s before but they dont sound quite as balanced as the 177x. Of course, it makes sense that they would sound simlar but yeah. Id recommend these over 1770s for music listening, professional applications may be different. If you are deciding between these and 1990s its really a toss up based on how much bass and sound leakage you want.

I need to look more through the comments, but ... I got mine yesterday. Listened last night, and listening right now. I love the sound signature. That's not an issue. (I *really* love the sound signature, and I'm kind of picky about tonality.) But maybe reading reviews on Amazon about 1770's have made me paranoid, but I could swear I'm hearing an imbalance between L and R. The left being a little more muffled than the right. Anyone hearing anything like that?

Glad to hear that you're enjoying them so much. I like what I hear, just that it's hard for me to get a proper seal and that's been bugging me quite a fair bit. It's totally impossible to get any seal on the velour pads, I could literally feel the gap behind by ears. Leather pads are a little better, but it hard to get good seal on both sides at the same time. May pad roll a little to see if it helps, maybe something that's angled to fill the back of my ears

I must have a big head (well, I know I do!), in that I don't have a problem with sealing, even wearing glasses. I wonder if you could bend the headband closer, to try and force a better seal ...

I recently got a pair of these and I'm looking for a replacement earpad. I like the sound of the Dekoni earpad that was provided but I think the highs are just a tad bit too much. Would the Brainwavz XL Hybird be a good choice?

Zeos recommended the Brainwave XL pads in his review. They were on sale for like $20 so why not give them a try. For myself, I’m liking the velour pads. I’ll try the sheepskin in another week or 2.

I received my 177x yesterday. Initial impressions are very positive. Sounds good with the Apple dongle DAC. Good listening level at around 75%. Also, sounds good with my NX4 and es100 DAC/Amps. The NX4 brings more weight to the overall sound signature. The best thing is the lack of treble spike. I listened to the headphone for 3+ hours yesterday and didn’t have any treble fatigue. The imaging and sound stage are very good as well. I’ll listen with the stock pads for a while and then try the leather pads in about a week or 2. Bass with stock pads is tight and controlled , which I like. I’ve been eyeing these since they came out. $350 seems to be the right price. They are likely going to replace my Meze 99 Noire as my travel headphones. Update: After a few more days of listening, I still like what I hear from the 177X. My MacBook Pro is able to drive these well. Other than a lack of headroom for some tracks I don't notice any significant degradation in sound quality when listening without a dedicated amp. I also like the more balanced bass compare to my DT990 600s. Update 2: 3 weeks later I'm still digging the 177X. The first couple of weeks I had them I was listening with my portable amps and DACs and directly from my MacBook Pro with the stock pads. When I returned home I started listening via my JDS Labs Element II at my desk. The 177X sound excellent from the Element II. I usually use my DT990 600 at the desk and enjoyed listening to the differences in the headphones side by side. Right off the bat I love the more balanced sound of the 177X with stock and leather pads. The recessed mids of the 990 are very noticeable when listening to the headphones back to back. The sound stage of the 990 is wider, but not by much. The 990 also win in terms of sub-bass. The 177X win back some bass points with the sheepskin pads in place. The leather pads elevate the bass of the 177X but also maintain the high and mid detail and are never sibilant. As much as I like the 990 with the Element II, it tames the highs, the 177X will be my daily driver desk headphone for the foreseeable future. I really like the versatility of the 177X it sounds good from all my sources it's also quite comfortable with the leather pads. The stock pads aren't bad, but the leather pads are better. An easy recommendation. Especially if it's on sale at $350.
