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?

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.
Is the cable removable ?
DenisF
No
DenisF
Thanks for your answer
My 250 ohm arrived today, but I've got no sound out of the right ear. I've tried multiple devices and its all left ear only. Am I going to have to RMA?
i want buy this but i saving right now hehe :3
ibadgrammar
Massdrop is the wrong place to be if you're saving right now:)
What is the difference between dt 770 pro 80 Ohm limited edition and the standard edition of the same?
Soumya
Color. Imo the ltd ed looks much nicer but the only difference is black vs grey pads
domcobb1
Thanks man. I was thinking if the sound would be different (like in 32 ohm & 250 ohm, the presence of the 'beyer' trable is supposedly more prominent than 80 ohm.) It's really good to know that isn't the case.
is this made in Germany or China ?
shuvro
If it's the exact same drop as last time, should still be Germany. I don't think they've ever been manufactured in China.
devolutionary
my box from 2 drops ago says Made in Germany - on my 250 Ohm version
these or the HD 58X Jubilee?

Unfortunately hd58x is not available now and i don't know when they will be back ao if u need a headphone now, these r better option. That said i don't have dt770 but i have dt990 and hd58x, I found hd58x is easier to listen to for long time. Dt990 and arguably dt770 have a peak in treble, if u don't know what i am talking about, then imagine everytime singer breath, that will be audiable with dt990 and even every single word with s sound. It can be tired very quick . other than that even in the bass region, the dt990 is more dominant than hd58x. So if u want something laid back wait for the hd58x. If u want extreme v shape pick these up. I heard that dt770 is less v shape than dt990 so that might be good but do keep that in mind if you choose them.
Drrragon
ok, got it. I'll wait for the HD 58x. Thanks for the info! appreciate it a lot.
" This drop is limited to members within the United States, Canada, and South America. "
But I can ship it to Israel. Is this intentional? Or will it not work?
For my Astell & Kern AK70, which option would be the best - 32/80/250 ohms?
zamlock
That's a more than adequate DAP for the 250 ohm version. Having said that, the 80ohm version is preferable for easy bass listening and less sharp treble. If you plan on doing more critical home listening I'd recommend 250ohms though.
devolutionary
Thanks for the reply. For rock / metal music mostly - what would be your pick? Cheers.
drat, that is much cheaper than what I paid a month ago! Oh well, I'll swallow the difference because I got much enjoyment in the meantime. I'm a musician, and these are just fantastic cans for bedroom jamming/producing. I thought my Shure SR440 headphones were very good, but these have an octave on either side of those, and just much more resolution. The only negative is that they do not fold, and on a hot day outside, your head will melt from the deep dark blackness absorbing all that heat.
I've been using the same 250-ohm pair with an amp for many hours a day for the last 5 years. No complaints, great for minimizing and drowning out background noise in the workplace environment.
These aren't noise canceling, so expecting them to block all incoming noise isn't feasible.
