Beyerdynamic DT 770 Review Facts

Are you someone who is on the hunt for a more practical pair of headphones? Then one option you can add to your list are the Beyerdynamic DT 770. If you want something that has wireless features and that will come with all the advanced features that tech-savvy and modern headphones will offer, then these aren’t it. But, if you want a pair of headphones that are as easy to use as plugging in a cable, then you’re good to go.

This Beyerdynamic product has a great sound quality and it is made out of sturdy materials, so you can be rest assured that this product will be lasting you a long time. And, if you were looking for a pair of headphones that you can use in a variety of settings, and especially for critical listening, then you’re on the right page.

However, as far as headphones go, these didn’t get the most spectacular reviews, mostly because they don’t offer any advanced features and because they are a bit uncomfortable to wear. So, let’s look at what these headphones have to offer and whether or not you should go and purchase them.

Editor's Pros & Cons

  • Ear cups and headband have comfortable padding
  • Will stay on
  • Best to use for critical listening
  • Great sound quality

Activities for Use

Most people agree that these are best to be used at home when you simply want to be listening to regular audio and music. You can certainly use them while in public, and they will work to block out a lot of noise that comes with using public transport and being in public in general.

They are a little bit lacking when it comes to isolation, and if you like to listen to audio at loud volumes, they do tend to leak. This might not be an issue if you’re alone, but it’s something to consider if you want to use these headphones while you’re out and about. You can use them for watching TV, but since they do not have wireless capabilities, you might be a bit limited as far as where you can sit and how far you can go from the TV. Most people agreed that they aren’t too comfortable to use for activities such as exercise and sports, because they are bulky and don’t have controls.


These do not come with a lot of accessories since they’re pretty straightforward to use. You will get the headphones themselves in the box, as well as two adapters (one ⅛ inch, and one ¼ inch), a user’s manual, and a pouch which you can use to carry them in when you go out. While they are made out of durable materials, it is always good to use precaution and make sure that you have some sort of case you can put them in. Not only will it make transportation a lot easier for you, but it will also protect your headphones against a lot of potential damage.

The ear cups and the headband have a padded material that a lot of people agreed was comfortable. The fabric that this padding is made out of also will not irritate your skin. You can also choose to remove the strap of padding on the headband if you choose. Another good thing that people noted was that the ear cups were able to fit all different sized ears, so this won’t be a problem for you at all.

You will get a pretty decent sound quality, and these were meant for critical listening. A lot of people commended this product for the quality of the bass in audio.

Along with the decent sound quality, you will also be getting a product that is made out of high-quality materials. You won’t have to worry about them getting damaged too easily because of how durable and solid the metal headband is.

Since they don’t have any wireless abilities, they don’t have any more advanced features.

Sound Quality

One area where many people were pleased with these was when it came to the quality of the sound they provided. You will be getting a highly accurate and clear sound with these, in particular when it comes to the base. The mid-range is also very clear and top-notch. The main issue with the sound was when it came to the treble, as a lot of people said that it sounded a little bit light.

These are best to be used for critical listening, so it comes to no surprise that the sound is clear. They don’t have great isolation, so if you’re in a very noisy area, you’ll still be able to hear all the sounds around you. And, the headphones do leak at higher volumes, so if you’re someone who likes to listen to audio very loudly, then those around you will likely be able to hear it, too. Other than that, you’ll generally get pretty good sound quality with these, and, according to some people, it will be better than that of this product’s competitors.


Since these do not have wireless capabilities, you will not need to connect them to any sort of wireless connection. This can be easier for you if you prefer to a pair of headphones while in places where you might not have access to WiFi and Bluetooth, but considering the growing demand for headphones that have wireless capabilities, this might be a dealbreaker for some people. You get two different cables and can use them to listen to audio on a PS4, Xbox One, and PC.


While these do come with a lot of extra padding that would naturally provide extra comfort for your head and your ears, a lot of people have complained that they are quite uncomfortable, especially when you wear them for the first time. This is also something to consider if you like to wear headphones for a long period of time; these will definitely become uncomfortable because of how tight they are. However, some people did say that they did loosen up after a few uses.

Other than that, people were pleased with the padding and the ear cups were able to fit around most people’s ears nicely. And, considering the fact that these are rather tight, you won’t have to worry about them falling off of your head. The only thing is that people said these weren’t too comfortable to exercise with, not due to the fact that they were worried they would fall off, but because they thought that the headphones felt too bulky to make any sort of exercise comfortable.


These clearly look like a pair of professional headphones. They feature circular ear cups that have a closed back, which is generally good for avoiding any leakage while listening to audio. The metal frame is highly durable and will be able to withstand a lot, including being dropped. The ear cups and the headband are made out of padding and fabric that won’t irritate your skin. The only part of the design that some people were not very pleased with was the fact that these are quite bulky and definitely aren’t the kind that you would carry around everywhere with you.


Most people who reviewed this product agreed that it is made out of very high-quality materials. The headband is made out of a strong metal material that will be able to withstand you dropping the headphones and much of the other daily abuse that headphones tend to go through. You also will get padding on the ear cups and the headband to help make sure that they feel more comfortable for you. A lot of people agreed that the fact that they won’t fall off your head can be attributed to their sturdy build.

You also will get a 2-year warranty when you purchase these, so this is a great deal should anything happen to them. The only area where some people had complaints with regards to durability was when it came to the ear cups. Some believed that the ear cups felt a little bit plasticky and not as high-quality as other parts of the headphones did. Otherwise, though, most agreed that you will be getting a great quality product out of the deal and most of the money spent will be for the quality.

Ease of Use

This Beyerdynamic product does not need to be used with any sort of WiFi or Bluetooth connection, nor do you have to worry about any compatible apps or other sorts of advanced features that some more professional and tech-savvy headphones will come with. So, that makes these incredibly easy to use; all you have to do is plug in one of the appropriate adapter cables depending on what device you plan to use, turn on your music, and you’re done. The only problem is that the wireless cables do not have a controller, so you will have to manually control things such as the volume of your audio, answering calls, skipping or replaying tracks, and more on your device itself.

Power Source

Considering the fact that these cannot be used wirelessly, you won’t have to worry about the battery draining or how long of a battery life they have- because these do not operate using a battery. This can certainly be an advantage for people who want to use headphones for long periods of time without worrying about when they need to go and charge them.


As far as a pair of simple and easy-to-use headphones go, these aren’t necessarily offered for the cheapest price. They retail for approximately $180 (159 euros), but you will be able to find them for about $40 cheaper on other online retailers, such as Amazon.

These Beyerdynamic headphones are definitely on the pricier side if you just want a pair that don’t offer too many advanced features, which a lot of people were disappointed about. However, keep in mind that you are paying for something that is made out of great quality materials and that provides good sound quality. Plus, you aren’t necessarily paying a similar price as you would for something that is much more advanced in the features it has to offer.
