Just got my 770s in the mail today and overall very pleased, except for one thing - There is a rattle/clicking in the right earcup under heavy sub-bass/bass. It occurs at high volume, but not dangerously high, just reasonably high. Does anybody else experience this?
What kind of warranty do these have through massdrop?
Is there a difference to the sound between the limited edition vs the non limited edition? Or is it just different pads?
If I’m getting the 80ohm set and use them with my iPhone 6S Plus, do I need to get a DAC/AMP? Was considering the Q1 markII. Any other suggestions? Thanks!
Before I order, a couple questions: 1) Does the 250 ohm model have a coiled cord? 2) I will powering my set with a Schitt Fulla. Will the 250 ohm model give me a more DT880-ish sound? Or is the 80 ohm model close enough to the 250 ohm model that the advantage of the straight cable, for my application, wins out? Thanks!
Pro tip, these are extremely easy to cable mod for mobile use. I picked up a used 250ohm set for $80 on ebay and swapped in dual 2.5mm mono jacks. Goodbye 10ft cable, hello new mobile beater cans.

Are you using a 250 ohm model with your phone?
Like the DT990 and DT880 drops, this is a phenomenal pair of headphones. But, after tax and shipping, is not that amazing a deal, since they go cheaper on Amazon. For quality, one of the best closed backs, for dubstep/electronic, it has little competition. It is incredibly comfortable, incredibly relaxing with rich low end, without being thunderous, they are indeed as people describe them, sub-bass kings. The resonance and minor echo the "80s bus terminal seats plastic" provide from its material and shape is unique and has a great way of reproducing sound in an isolated chamber. There are other options for high end detail, but for bass and sub-bass that retains quality mid range, and decent treble, these are a winner.
Should I buy these to complement my DT880 or hope Massdrop has a drop for the DT1990? I would regret missing a drop on the DT1990s... Or Massdrop and Beyerdynamic could collaborate and make a DT1880!
These are one of my favorite headphones I own, other fav is my DT880 Premium 250ohms.. I have owned my DT770 Pro 80's for ~5 1/2 yrs they still function / look very good no cracks / breaks / cable issues.. only thing that identifies them as being over 1/2 a decade old is a bit of wear on the white earcup lettering. Even the 80ohms version will need an amp (imho) for best results .. these make terrible on the go headphones as the cable is 10ft long and fixed and they don't fold at all.. For home / studio use these are very good, comfortable fun sounding headphones.. basically like if the ath m50x's were better in every way.. Do figure on buying new ear pads annually as the velour pad wear / get umm not so nice after awhile.. $30~ish for new pads.

Is this one good for post-rock or the Dekoni Blue Fostex Plabar-Magnetic that's dropping now? I am getting a new pair for mostly post-rock as I have a 6XX for classical. The genre will require something can handle relaxing celtic music + medium-hard rock. Therefore something that offers nice imaging of clear guitar/string and exiting stuff like drums and/or plus other rock stuff.
would this a good headset for gaming? i've heard sometimes headphones like this are good for gaming.

The DT770 is one of the best closed back options for gaming. If you're OK with open, the DT880 would be a better option imo. The DT Beyer drivers have a nice uniform phase (particularly at higher impedances), which combined with the big enclosure makes for a good sound stage (you'll be able to locate sound source direction easily). They also have excellent bass, which makes the explosions sound reeeeel gud :)

Hello, Assuming you have your amp game on point.. yes the DT770 are excellent closed gaming headphones.. sound stage is good for a closed headphone.. I use these most of the time when gaming... comfortable also can wear for quite awhile and I generally can't wear most headphones for a long time.. I also own the previously mentioned DT880's they would be a bit better for gaming, however they are semi open (more open than semi) and they leak sound out and in.. which annoys my wife... So i use the 770's more often.
Does the 250 ohm also say Limited Edition on the right earcup, or is it just the 80 ohm?

3.5mm TRS. Headphile does a balanced mod but only if you do darth beyers through him. I guess though it is difficult to get a mini XLR in there.
uh not my mod bro scroll up. That said I modded my dt 880s as dual-entry for the prospect of balanced, though single entry balanced is easy as well, I make my own cables.
I presently own the 250ohm, but want the same sound on the go. Are the 32ohm sonically the same? Better/Worse. What is the trade off with lower ohms?

I have both the 80 and 32LTD. Have to say the 32 is quite unique but would gladly move on to others. My 80 has unbalanced output issue after some time like my DT1350

Thanks. Yeah, my 250ohm thru Schiit Asgard are fantastic. I will stick with my ATH-M60x on ears for on the go. Even my Porta-Pros for portability too.
decent deal for 32 or 250 ohm, but the 80 ohm is currently $145 on amazon with free shipping https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0016MNAAI/?coliid=I3OEAMXE91FIW5&colid=36QYA7X1YVR40&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
Should I get these or the HIFIMAN HE4XX?

Thanks, this helps a lot!
You are most welcome.
which model is better for use with a AVR (Denon X3300) and without any additional headphone amp to listen to movies at night?

Thanks for your reply.
The sub bass on the DT770 80ohm is the most satisfying of all my headphones.
I've used the DT770s professionally and think they are quite incredible. They would also be good for anywhere where you don't want to bother others, like a cubical or watching Netflix late at night and don't want to wake the spouse.
Which one should I buy? I would like to use them with my phone (a galaxy s9).

32 ohms

Yes, 32 ohms for connecting to consumer devices (phone, laptop), 80 ohms for studio applications (such as connecting to an digital audio interface), and 250 for high-end audiophile applications (will require an amp).
If I join the drop for these today, will they really not ship until the end of the month? Even though the drop ends in 3 days?
hwiskey
I joined the last drop that ended on Oct 16th and had a ship date of Nov 2nd. They actually shipped early and I received mine on Oct 26th. However, mine were not the Black version that was advertised, I received the grey versions by accident. So that could be why I received mine so soon. If you do join the drop, just assume it won't ship until the 26th.

Hmm okay, thanks for the info. I'm buying these specifically because I want the black ones, I can get the grey ones for the same price locally and I live in NZ.. Not too sure about this drop now..
We need a 77X version of these in Massdrop's dark blue with a removable cable
Just got my 250 ohm version and it's not the "limited edition" black version. Just the regular Grey ear pad version. Anyone else get this instead of the advertised limited edition black version?
Does the 32 ohm version have a shorter cable than the other versions?
If anyone has a link to the frequency response of 250ohm vs 80ohm on the same chart, that would be great!
Everyone talks about the bass on 80ohm, but how is the 250ohm? Coming from ATH-M50X and wouldn't want less bass, but don't want something too boomy either.

I own both (M50x and DT770 in 250 ohms). I prefer bass on the DT770, same impact, less muddy. And soundstage is wider than on the M50x's, they almost sound like an open back headphone. Do amp them, from a smartphone they sound tinny.

Thanks!
Did Massdrop make any changes to the standard DT770? Or are these just on sale here?

- 32ohm is the "less refined" sounding, and it's actually less flexible due to it's low impedance: it requires a very low output impedance, anything above 4 ohms will be too much. However, their low impedance makes them really easy to drive from portable devices.
- 80ohm is, according to my readings, a good compromise between drivability and sound quality. It has similar bass quantity than the 32 ohm, but better quality. It'll still sound loud enough from most portable devices, specially good quality DAPs, but SQ still improve with better amplification.
- 250 ohm has less bass quantity, but the damping factor makes the bass quality improve. However, these aren't easy to drive for most solid state amps, specially embedded chipsets you'll find on most PC/laptop/smartphones won't drive them loud nor good. On the plus side, their higher impedance allows you to use literally anything to drive them: from budget solid state to expensive OTL amps, they'll sound loud and scale with better amplification.
Depending on your preferences and setup, 80 or 250 ohm versions are both interesting: IDK if I'd go for the 80 or 250 ohm version, the 250 fits better my setup (I have a DV 336se and I'd like to use it, or at least be able to) but the 80 has more bass quantity (I like some extra bass on closed backs), so both are appealing. The 32 ohm version, for me, it's a stupid compromise: it doesn't sound as good as higher ohm versions, requires a very low output impedance to sound "just ok", and won't scale with better amplification.
If you really need a low impedance, easy to drive, closed back headphones that you can listen just with your smartphone but still plug to a desktop setup and improve their sound quality a bit, better look elsewhere (Audio Technica ATH-M50x are way better than the 32 ohm DT770, and will do exactly what you need).
80 Ohm has a warm and good sound even directly being driven from laptop or PC
Question: I prefer the 250 Ohm version - Can this play if plugged directly to my mac book laptop?

Thanks for you reply @raansire7 - I do currently own a audio interface . Hopefully this can power the 250 ohm. I own the Rode AI-1. I do own about 4 computers at home, but I only have 1 dac/audio interface. I wonder how does the 250 ohm sound plugged directly to the Mac Laptop.

You're welcome, buddy. But "listen"...you need GOOD POWER if you want to be amazed by them. If not, they will be underwhelming. I own the DT 990 PRO and the more sensitive T90. They're both 250 ohm and get plenty loud on the iPhone 8 Plus, iPad Pro, Colorfly C3 and LG V10...and even on my LG G3. Plenty loud. That's about it. Loudness doesn't translate to aural pleasure. The T90 are less picky because of the Tesla drivers, but the older 250 ohm DT series Beyers NEED power to sound good. If not, they sound torturously bright and brittle, the mids sound distant, and the bass sounds weak. Hooked up to my Asgard 2, even on low gain the DT 990 PRO come alive and sound awesome, like a different pair of headphones. On low power, they will get loud enough to bother your ears, and will sound "good" in the grand scheme of things, but chances are your brain will notice something off about the sound and you will not feel reward. Get yourself a headphone amp and a DAC. It's not an option, buddy. Interfaces do not have quality headphone amps. They're decent, but not ground-breaking. You don't have to break the bank. A Schiit Audio Modi 3 DAC and a Magni 3 amp will cost you $198 combined and you will be able to power basically any headphones, and it will sound fantastic to your ears.
In the description here, it says the 250 ohm model comes with a straight cable. Everywhere else I've looked, it appears the 250 ohm model always comes with a coiled cable. Which does this come with?
Anyone from the Philippines who joined the dropped? How's the Global Warranty of this one / massdrop?
ajdt
No warranty buy at your own risk.
Anyone have experience using these as reference? Tracking/recording audio. Specifically interested in the 32ohm so I can take them on the road and use them everywhere.
