The Beyerdynamic 770 Pro (80 ohm) headphones, known for their excellent overall sound quality and comfort, are a closed, over-ear design, making them suited for long listening sessions with minimal disturbance to those around you. However, these headphones do not have a microphone, may not be ideal for calls or meetings, and their build does not support activities like exercise or travel due to their size. They come with a non-detachable 1.1-meter cable, so you won't have wireless freedom or the convenience of swapping cables, and lack noise-cancelling features, which may be a downside for use in noisier environments. If you prioritize sound and comfort in a midrange price and do not require portability or a mic for communication, these could serve you well for music, TV, and some video gaming. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Music:
4.6
The Beyerdynamic 770 Pro (80 ohm) are highly regarded for music listening because they offer an excellent sound quality with a very good soundstage and imaging, which create an immersive audio experience. Being closed-back headphones, they provide good sound isolation, while their wired design ensures consistent audio reproduction without the compression artefacts often introduced by wireless codecs.
TV & Video:
4.5
The Beyerdynamic 770 Pro (80 ohm) headphones are excellent for watching TV and videos due to their very good sound quality and the fact that they are wired, ensuring low latency crucial for syncing audio with visual content. Additionally, their good soundstage and imaging provide a more lifelike and immersive audio experience, enhancing your viewing pleasure.
Gaming:
3.6
The Beyerdynamic 770 Pro (80 ohm) headphones are wired, not offering the low latency required for competitive gaming, and although they provide a good soundstage and imaging for immersive gameplay, the lack of a microphone makes them less suited for multiplayer gaming where communication is key. The headphones, however, do offer very good comfort for long gaming sessions.
