Product Description
A collaboration with world-renowned headphone manufacturer Beyerdynamic, the DT 177X GO has the kind of German-made quality you can see, hear, and feel. Based on the DT 1770 PRO, it uses the latest generation of 45-millimeter Tesla drivers for a wide frequency range and a weighty, controlled bass ... Read More

THE PATH TO THE ULTIMATE LUXURIOUS, FUN, TRANSPORTABLE CLOSED BACK HEADPHONE Beyerdynamic started in 1924 and they are known for making the first modern headphones. Year 1937:  Beyerdynamic DT 48. “DT” stands for “Dynamic Telephone”.

Over the following 70 years, Beyerdynamic would achieve incredible feats in headphone development. From developing the first dynamic driver with over one Tesla of magnetic field strength, to summiting Mt. Beyer. Jokes aside, without Beyerdynamic, headphones and our community would not be where they are today. We’ve been pursuing this collaboration for years and we couldn’t be more excited to show you the DT 177X GO:

FROM PRO...TO GO! The DT 1770 PRO version was originally designed for mixing desks and professional audio interfaces.  The PRO version needs more power to operate the drivers and was designed to show flaws in recordings. From the Beyerdynamic website: “The DT 1770 PRO are the ideal headphones for live acts as the extremely high efficiency drivers assure a perfect listening experience in the loudest environments.” We worked with Beyerdynamic to modify their DT 1770 PRO version and make it better for our community and the kind of music listening that we do: from a sit-stand desk, at a coffee shop, or around the home.   Tuning The DT 177X GO has a slightly smoother sound, with some additional damping. Designed for the home versus a recording studio or concert venue. Power The DT 177X GO is easier to drive from low power devices, along with the added capability of balanced drive built into the earcup connector. (We’re working on a 2.5mm TRRS Balanced cable for Digital Audio Players and Bluetooth Pucks made by Astell&Kern, Cayin, Earstudio, FiiO, iBasso, Onkyo, Questyle, and others.) Here are a couple of gear combos that we have been enjoying around the office… In use with Astell&Kern XB10 (can use Single-ended 3.5mm or Balanced 2.5mm):

Our classic line of desktop amps certainly gives a great performance using both single ended (Cavalli Tube Hybrid) and balanced (THX AAA 789) outputs.  However being able to step away from the desk with just a laptop or portable player and continuing to enjoy such excellent sound quality and dynamics has been a real treat that we are happy to finally share with you!

So you did the tuning? Sounds like it will actually be the true successor to the 770 80ohm.

@T.Fernandez I really like drop but the fact everyone has skirted answering the one fundamental question I asked earlier is disheartening. I simply want to know if these come with a warranty?

The 1770's are much brighter overall and have significant sibilant peaks at times. The 177x has a much warmer overall tone (I hesitate to call it dark without listening to it again), but there are no sibilant peaks. My first reaction was... "It has all the special, good parts of the 177X without any of the bad parts, with a warmer tone overall." The 177x is much more balanced and the bass hump bleeds less too, even though it is still a bass-capable and bass-emphasized cannon. I'd have to sit down with them again, but the 177x may be my favorite closed set on the market right now, even with the elevated bass and its warmer than neutral sound signature. I do like the Mr. Speakers CX for closed as well; for its neutrality, but its missing the dynamics that the 177x has, and sounds more compressed/synthetic in tone in general (although the CX sounds more natural than the Mr Speakers C Flow variant imho). I have a set of EMU Teaks incoming in about a month or so, so I'll be interested to compare these as well, even though those are "semi-open" supposedly... Overall, in listening to the whole line up of Beyerdynamics and A/Bing them, the 177x may be the best... I do like the T1, but these are also more bass neutral comparatively, still peaky (here or there) and not closed. I would say more ordered favorites would be 177x > T1 > 1770 > 1990 > T5 > 880... and I wouldn't even worry about the rest...

Thank you. I pre order the 177x. My first experience with dt990 250 ohm was wrong ( first audiphile headphone). Now i have the dt880 and dt990 both 600 ohm. I really love my dt880, its favorite headphone of every other headphone i have tried (Hd58x, dt990 250/600, he4xx, k7xx, sundara,meze 99 noir). I want a closed can. I want to buy a dt770 80 and 250 ohm just to test them out. i think i am a beyer fan. I also want to try on the road t1, amiron home, t5p, 1770, 1990.

OK so I'm actually really excited to move from my th-x00 to these. What do you think, am I going to be happy or disappointed?

Thanks for the confirmation. I discovered 20 minutes after the drop ended you can order separate cases for the 1770/1990. So to those that bought the 177X and want a case, feel free to head over to the Beyerdynamic website and find your case :)

These seem to be in a similar vein to the t5p, I wonder how they compare.

I won't be able to order these until September at the earliest. Does anyone know if Massdrop ever brings back sales like this?
