What customers say about "Size & Weight"
beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO Over-Ear Studio Headphones
  • These are German engineering at its best - well made, with interchangeable parts (so if you wear something out, you simply replace the part, rather than the entire unit)
  • They are a tad heavy (the trade off for well made kit), and do take a little getting used to if you've only ever used lightweight/cheaper headphones
  • Comfort...wow..i love the enormous ?velour ear pads.. you can wear this hours on end without fatigue.
  • The first time you unpack them and see the no-nonsense look, the big-and-bad all-replaceable-parts look, you know you're not talking about poser-gear here.
  • The build quality is solid, the sound is amazing with a really punchy, strong bass and music, games and films sound amazing while using them.
Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Monitor Headphones
  • They are full sized headphones; however, they do fold up for easier transport.
  • Housed within the plastic exterior is a metal frame that gives the headphones just the right amount of weight, assuring its durability.
  • The handset at first sight gives an impression of good construction, has a good weight.
  • The only cons I really have for them is the weight and stiffness. The weight takes some extended time to get used to especially if they are your first pair of studio quality headphones.
  • The only downside I felt, the weight on the ears was a bit heavier than my previous headphones, but I was able to adapt with time.

What customers say about "Features"
beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO Over-Ear Studio Headphones
  • Stand-alone use is very good, with plenty of detail showing across the range, a good place to start with audio kit if your budget won't stretch to additional kit as this will hold up well without an amp.
  • With good quality DAC and amp, well it truly comes into its own when paired with good additional equipment - lots of detail which I've never heard before becomes noticeable
  • I sometimes sleep with them on since it's so comfy. they should make a pillow out of the materials of their earpads. lol.
  • They're super meaty in the low end, they do have a tiny bit of compromise on the mids, but the treble is awesome and the sound stage is as accurate as on my Eclipses and let me tell you, that is 110% praise because those latter's are the standard.
  • Headphones themselves are of superior quality and produce beautiful crisp sound, with reverberating bass throughout the extremely-comfortable ear-cups.
Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Monitor Headphones
  • The frequency response is fairly neutral and they have great dynamic range.
  • Audio comes through clearly and the different frequency ranges are well defined.
  • I am going to an extent of saying that these are the best sounding headphones I've ever used, and thanks to their low impedance, I can use them on my phone without sacrificing on anything.
  • With an impedance of 38 ohms you do not need a headphone amp to drive them.
  • Unfortunately, they do not come with 1.2 m cable like a big brother m50x, so you have to wear 3 meters one with you
  • Not for everyone. The sound is amazing throughout the entire spectrum but it is very flat.
