Great sound but ... A bit too much bass and trebles ! V sound. Need good sources. Can get boomy on techno etc. Fun closed headphone though !

This 250ohm version of the DT770 is essentially a worse-sounding, harder to drive brother to the 80ohm version. The midrange is more veiled by the bass, which is a bit more boomy, and the highs are harsher. They are still very good cans, and of course built like a tank, but not worth buying when you could get the better-sounding, easier to drive 80ohm version at the same price, or even less. Perhaps their only potential benefit is the coiled cord, which can make them more convenient for portable, studio, or office use.

I really appreciated the velour earcups, they were very comfortable. They look industructable, though I haven't thrown them around . They squeeze at my jawline a little, It took a few days to get over it, This is standard. Bass: The bass was there, in a very big way. It missed the mark though. In some of the bass heavy hip-hop or rap songs the quality was definitely lacking. The bass did not bother me in rock and roll like the Beatles and the Who where bass was less prevalent.Mids: I enjoyed the Mids, They were a little recessed, they could have used beefing up but, what was there was accurate and quality.Highs: They were beefier than the mids but not by much, they were accurate.Overall not a bad headphone. I enjoyed rock where the vocals were not emphasized, those were fun. The bass's inaccuracy on hip hop was too disurtbing for me to listen. I liked these headphones, but not that much.

Absolutely an amazing headphone for a bass head. Don't let people fool you. These are not worse than the 80ohm version. If you have an amp, you are ready to roll. There is nothing this headphone can't handle. Highly suggested!!
