Came quickly, packaged well.

To get better sound i made playlist and left them playing for first week or two, non stop. (all kinds of music from violin to drum and bass to hip hop and metal)
They sound simply amazing, make sure you listen to FLAC files

5.0 out of 5 stars Never have had better headphones before Oct. 13 2013
By Keegan

Very great sounding, perfect for recording and listening to recorded samples. They also work very nice with music and games due to the low frequency response and isolated design. The sound stage is crazy huge despite being over ear and closed cans. They are also quite tough and have yet to show any sign of damage.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best July 25 2009
By S.P - Published on Amazon.com
I graduated to these headphones from Sony MDR-7506 and never looked back. I'm on my second pair now and for $199, they are worth every single cent and more. These headphones completely engulf your ears and are very comfortable, it feels like two pillows resting against your head. I'm a programmer and I wear these babies all day long. What I really like about them is that you can blast your music and it doesn't escape them so you don't annoy the people around you. On the flip side, once you put them on you can't hear ANYTHING from the outside world which is what I like too. As far as the music goes, pretty bassy and especially suited for rap and hard core techo music with a deep bass line. The pure highs are a bit lacking. But this is a bass head's headphone and I love them. They're also as strong as iron. I can throw them around the room, in my backpack, sleep with them. Hell throw them on the wall for no reason and they're as good as new. The only cons I can think about is that they look pretty stupid when you put them on. They're HUGE. But that's the nice thing about being a programmer you can look as ridiculous as you want.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Professional Use, They Don't Get Much Better Sept. 6 2007
By M. B. - Published on Amazon.com
As a radio professional, I demand headphones that are going to give faithful sound reproduction with solid construction. You're putting them on and taking them off every four minutes, and have a cord to walk around and try not to trip over for your other tasks. No matter how religious I've always been about being gentle with them, until I tried Beyer-Dymanics, every single pair I've ever owned has let me down within ten months. Either the wiring cuts out on an ear, and/or a studio mishap sends parts flying.

I've owned my DT770s for over five years. Best investment I've ever made, as headphones go.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't hesitate if you can find it under $200! Just be warned issues can arise. March 28 2009

For me headphones are a very personal sort of thing, so it's hard to rate or recommend it to other people. For me I wanted something with a decent sound stage, good bass, and a comfortable fit. These headphones have that.

These cans have completely changed they way I listen to music, I find myself listening to more and more classical music because it just sounds flat out amazing with these headphones. Rock, metal, and jazz sound equally impressive but be prepared to delete songs as these phones will bring light to shed upon your puny bitrates.

All in all I have to say these phones earn the following (1-5 scale):

Sound Quality (4.8) There's probably better out there but only if your willing to spend $6000 for a speaker setup or $400 for headphones.

Sound Leakage (5) These headphones leak very little sound and also help block outside sounds (like plane engines) very well.

Comfort (5) With their valor earcups (just like the soft bosom of Zap Brannigan's uniform) these headphones are comfortable enough to wear indefinitely! I also found the headband to be less invasive as on other headphones.

Portability (3) These headphones are a bit bulky and I'm not sure how they sound without an amp, I believe a ipod could give these enough juice to run, but I haven't tried it yet.

Value (5) If you can find these for under $200 used or new, the purchase is a no brainer, these are a must buy if you can afford them!

Overall score: 4.5

These are amazing headphones, if you can find them for under $200 buy them immediately if you can't then save up the extra cash and buy them anyway! Overall I am very impressed with them!

---UPDATE 2010----

After well over a year of use, I have decided to move on to another pair of headphones. Despite all the problems I've had with these DT770s Beyerdynamic left such a positive impression on
me that my next pair will probably be the DT 880s.

The issue with the DT 770s seems to be that the right ear cup will develop a jarring rattling/vibrating sound when any low frequency sounds are played. I cleaned the headphones thoroughly and didn't find any hair near the driver. More recently I discovered this was a common issue with the DT 770s and can often be attributed to the lower quality cabling or something wrong with the driver itself. Because of how common this issue is with the 770 line, I dropped my rating by 1 star (though I would have only dropped it by half if I could).

However I was so pleased by the performance and comfort of the DT 770s, that I have not been able to wear any other headphones, sure I thought the K701s sounded better, but that stupid headband and its painful bumps dug into my brain. I've become so spoiled by the construction, feel, and sound of the DT 770s, that I don't think I can use any other headphones unless they use a similar design and velor earcups. These were the only headphones to ever fully cover my large head and elongated ears. So if anyone knows of any non-Beyerdynamic headphones that fit as well as these, let me know, because I have yet to find any!

5.0 out of 5 stars nice flat response headphones Dec 26 2005
By Paul A. McGee - Published on Amazon.com
I just purchased a pair of these headphones in the 80 ohm version as opposed to the 250 ohm model listed under this header. The two are similar products used for different applications but like any audio product you have to hear them for yourself.

Despite the subjectivity disclaimer, I will say these cans have a seemingly more flat response compared to the Sennheiser HD280 and the Sony MDR7506 I auditioned side-by-side in the store. The mid-range response of the dt770's was the best quality- because you can actually pick out the mids. The high frequency response was articlate without being pushy, a big factor for me. In contrast, the Sony phones seem to feature an aggressive and unrefined response in the high frequency. Otherwise the Sonys are fine for $100. The Sennheisers (also $100) seem to isolate better than both the Beyers and the Sonys, but I found the Beyers the most comfortable of the three. I don't have big ears, but the Sonys seem to have little chiclet ear cups and isolated the least of the three. The Senns are definitely worth the $100, but I can't figure out why the Sonys are audio industry standard headphones with that almost prickly high pitch response.

I picked the Beyers even though they cost twice as much as the other two because of the exceptionally even response I got from them. When I took them home I tried them out on every little lo-fi device I could find, and they continually made me shiver with their fidelity and overall tempered sound. Do you want to 'hear' your headphones influencing the music? I don't.

The Beyer's base response was hearty, maybe due to lightweight transducers that reproduce sound more efficiently than most cans. But for me it was hearing the mids, a range that humans don't pick up as easily as bass or high pitch sounds, that made these worthwhile. If you want super high quality phones, pick these up.

5.0 out of 5 stars My search ended here. Nov. 17 2008
By Reader - Published on Amazon.com
I wanted something that would be sweet, tight, detailed, and accurate across the frequency range, something I could use in the studio, but also with an iPod/laptop without extra amplification, and I wanted at least a respectable level of sound isolation (keep outside sound out, my sound in). Some would say that list of demands is impossible, I say those people haven't checked these out.

After testing dozens of nice so called "pro" headphones with my iPod Nano I was starting to think I was just going to have to make some compromises. Then I plugged these in, the clouds parted, a beam of sunlight shone down from above, and angels began singing.

A conga player can hear his drum plus the sound of his fingers on it sometimes when he plays, why shouldn't you when you play it back? If a singer stomps their foot on the stage, they heard it, shouldn't you get to? The answer is hell yes. Just exquisite texture....strings, vocals (oh my god), horns....the puff of a kick drum...plucked deep base notes...

I could go on but but let me just summarize and say that -unamplified- these headphones will make you wet your pants. I'm not kidding. Hard to get better. At this level any arguable upward increment in sound quality is going to cost you considerably and tie you to a chair in front of a shelf mounted amplifier.

I recommend these with no reservation. If you want the very best sound you can possibly get out of an iPod or similar source your search is over. The coolest thing is that these are truly great for everything.

Tip: For those who may not know, I'm talking about the 80ohm version, the 250ohm version of the same model must be plugged into an amp.
