Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro Headphones Review

Killed a pair of cheap phones recently, so popped out 2 pick up a nice pair and purchased these DT 770 cans. It came down as a choice between these and the Sennheiser HD 380 model.
The Senns seemed a bit more balanced of the two but these had more low energy and a little more of an exciting sound which
could be helpful for getting good takes 4 tracking. They are super comfy out of the box with the soft fabric around the ears but b 4warned the padding on top band is thin and where it meets your head will get achy after a couple hours. So, abt perfect 4 short uses but 4 long listening or mixing sessions, not so much. After listening 2 lots of stuff thru them and comparing w/ other speakers they are definitely colored in the low end and cymbals and hi-hat land is pushed, also. Midrange, however, seems relatively smooth and flat. Pretty revealing 4 doing audio editing heard some glitches I hadn't noticed b4 so good in that department. There was a little bleed n2 the mic when recording vocals but not too bad. All in all, really great comfy cans 4 doing tracking and short editing/listening sessions. Going to be saving up 4 a pair of sennheiser HD 650 though 4 late night mixing because these are just a bit too colored to trust w/ an eq.
