Can you get a balanced cable for the DT177X? Never mind, just noticed it uses a 3 pin connection on the headphones.

wait. The original DT 1770 uses a 3-pin XLR This DT 177X Go comes with a 4-pin balanced plug you'll want to check etsy, hartaudiocables, or periapt (among the lot) if you zoom into the 9th picture of the images above, you'll see the cable comes in a 4-pin female mini XLR on one end, with the 3.5mm + 6.5mm adapter on the other. link to drop images: https://drop.com/buy/massdrop-x-beyerdynamic-dt177x-go-headphones/photos#imagecarousel

Damn, wish I pulled the trigger sooner on these... going to have to wait awhile now because the CAD to USD conversion is absolute trash at the moment. Feels bad man... Just glad I got the majority of my higher end cans and gear before this happened. If anyone in Ontario has a pair in very good shape that they want to sell for a reasonable price, let me know :)

Both are up and down right now... at least it came back up slightly over the past week... it was in a nose dive last week. I'm hoping CAD>USD goes back up a little bit over the next few weeks so i'm holding out.. Also, I buy a lot of collectible figures from Japan too so I've been looking at the exact same conversions as you lol. A month ago $10 CAD was about 800 JPY, last week it was like 730 JPY at the lowest but now its back to about 775 JPY... I miss the old days when CAD was on par to USD, those were great days! There was a store in Hamilton or St. Catherines area that had those exact Denons on sale over Christmas and I almost bought them... I wish I remember what the price was but I think it was around 700-800.

lol oh yeah definitely miss the time when CAD is strong. CAD hasn't been that good for a long while. And yes I know the store you're talking about, I was there a while back at St Catherines, it was Gibby's Electronic Supermarket. I think they had to special order it and it was around $800-900 so I didn't go for it at the time. I just checked now it's currently $898 so ordering from Japan might still be cheaper (since Denon is a Japanese company). Though I think DT177X GO which is about $537 CAD according to google, compare to Denon's $641 CAD which is still not bad. Like you said we'll wait a bit and see lol.

So I tried my friend's DT880 and I find at max headband extension the headphone is just a tiny bit too small for my head (yes I have big head). Do you guys know if this will have the same problem? Also I'm currently looking for replacement for my Denon AH-D2000 would this be a worthy upgrade?

Looking at these headphones.... I currently have a FiiO Q1 Mk2 but am considering to buy a Q5S (so I get to use my older cables). Someone here who's done an A/B with either DAC and how they affect the sound of these 177X's?

The Fiio Q1 is great for that due to its small profile. The ES100 might be a great choice too. It’s even smaller and it’s Bluetooth so it doesn’t need to be connected to your phone.

I've heard of the ES100 too. I'll try to A/B with my Q1 to see whether I like them better-- though I am really curious how these 177x's pair with Q5S. Thanks bcaulf!

What pads are you all rocking with these? I’ve been using the velours but I’m starting to notice more harshness in the treble than I did before. It’s not really fatiguing, the problem is that it seems to be affecting vocals in that register so they sound a bit strange, like they have a rough and artificial texture behind them sometimes. I’m wondering if the sheepskins would help with that, though I like the openness of the velours. On the plus side, that’s really the only more than tiny issue I have with these.

Sheepskins sounded more tonally correct to me. I still prefer using EQ though as the treble and midrange are just too recessed for me. Vocals are pretty good on sheepskins, female vocals in particular. But you lose more treble energy like at 6k. The 6-7db dip at 6khz is a bit much for me and it doesnt EQ well past +3db there without distorting.

Interesting, thanks. I haven’t tried them only because I’ve read they make the headphone sound a little darker than stock, and in stock form I already find them just a tad too warm. But I agree, even with the velours I could use a little more upper mid/lower treble.

I've seen a similar question asked, but don't see any responses. How does the 177x compare to the Meze 99 noir in terms of tonal response and soundstage? For reference - I have a Focal Elear which I like very much. But it's inappropriate for use in the office. I have a pair of Campfire Audio Lyra IIs that are also excellent, but since they need to be carefully installed (squeezing the tips, arranging the wire around the back of the ear, etc.) they're sort of nuisance in the office when I need to be taking them in and out all the time. My setup is Tidal through an SMSL M500 (and a Loxjie P20 for balanced). I bought the Meze 99 noir to use for office listening, but I'm finding that they're more one dimensional than I'd prefer. My headphone vocabulary is a bit limited, but they sound very heavy, even murky, when compared to the Elears, which makes sense - open v. closed. But they also sound murky and claustrophobic compared to the Lyra IIs. Would the 177x provide a wider soundstage and a more engaging listen than the Meze 99? And more generally, does the community have any recommendations for closed backs that would get closer to the dynamism of the Elear and Lyra II? (Cascades and Elegias are the obvious candidates).

Good question; I owned the 99 Noirs briefly but I sold them to buy these, and I find these to be much better. You’re right about the Meze in that they’re just so boosted in the bass it’s not even close to neutrality. I don’t mind a little color but it was too much for me to enjoy. I like to have a decent picture of how the music is supposed to sound. The 177X is very open sounding to me, at least with the velours. Whether they are more engaging or not is up to you. The Meze would probably be more fun for a lot of people, because the bass is quite fun to listen to, but it does muddy the sound up quite a bit. The 177X is more dry in its presentation but I find their tonal balance more enjoyable. And they’re not too bright or piercing. And yeah, I haven’t heard the other headphones you mentioned but it’s hard to compare closed vs open.

Not that I know of, maybe if you ask Drop they can ship them without if it’s for health/lifestyle concerns. But they come with the velour pads installed so you don’t need to use the leather pads if you don’t want.

i find them dull straight out of my iphone. from a dragonfly red they're much better, with tighter, more precise bass, less harsh treble, and better dynamics. going to my modi 3/vali 2 combo, the differences from the dragonfly are smaller, but still noticeable. i find them smoother yet without any loss in detail. bass has more nuance to it, especially textural details. treble is far smoother and less fatiguing. the treble i think is due to the vali 2 being a hybrid tube amp, and i'm running a tube with soft treble presentation. overall i much prefer the beyer on my schiit stack or dragonfly to straight out of the phone.
