beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO X Limited Edition review

Their 990 and 770 headphones made waves in the 80s, an open back and closed-back design respectively, famed for their comfort for long studio sessions, as well as for professional level sound. Modern iterations saw the DT 770 PRO and DT 990 PRO, and eventually the addition of the PRO X, with an improved driver design for more volume with less distortion, and unbelievably wide, crisp and accurate stereo field, all built to withstand the rigours of the stage and studio. The DT 770 PRO X’s closed back design provides both isolation for recording sessions, as well as reducing crosstalk and bleed from one headphone cup to the other, improving stereo clarity and field.

The DT 770 PRO X Ltd are celebrated this year borrowing from the 770’s closed-back design for superior studio isolation, featuring a dynamic transducer, a nominal impedance of 48Ω, responding to everything from 5Hz up to 40kHz. 40kHz might seem excessive, but this also means that the DT 770 PRO X Ltd have unparalleled headroom, offering clear, accurate and concise sound for world-class music production.


These headphones feature a STELLAR.45 driver making them a great solution for multiple playback devices without running into major issues with too little (or too much!) volume ever being available.

The DT 770 PRO X have 16dB of ambient noise isolation, ensuring you can remain focused on the signal you’re producing, mixing, recording or mastering, all with well balanced response and crystal-clear sound. The full spectrum is not only covered, but it’s accurate.

The headband itself is made from spring steel, meaning it’s robust enough for daily use without losing shape, without sacrificing comfort, the headband retaining flexibility on your head for long studio sessions.

The DT 770 PRO X Limited Edition arrive safe with a drawstring bag, as well as various cable options in a straight cable, a 3-pin mini XLR (lockable) and mini stereo jack (3.5 mm) with a screw-on adapter 3.5 mm to 1/4″ (6.35 mm) stereo jack.

The DT 770 PRO X Ltd are the optimal choice for recording and mixing. It’s increasingly common for artists and producers to be making music to be working on the go, or at home, and not always in spaces that are treated acoustically for optimal sound.


What makes beyerdynamic headphones special is how comfortable they are. Stellar sound aside (we’ll get to that in a moment!), you can easily wear beyerdynamic headphones for hours at a time, without feeling the pressure slowly closing in, or by the pressure of the sound of the headphones’ drivers. They’re comfy enough to forget you’re wearing them, allowing you to focus on the task at hand.

Soundwise the DT 770 PRO X Ltd follow the DT 770 PRO 80ohm with a powerful sound, full ranged response and manage to toe the line between technically flat and reference-quality, while still being hugely enjoyable to listen to.

The beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO X Ltd encapsulates a century of incredible audio products from Germany’s beyerdynamic. Built like a workhorse, some of their first headphones, the DT48, were the first headphones designated for the studio, the 80s saw the addition of their studio mainstays, the DT 770 and DT 990. These brought with them unparalleled comfort, coupled with robust, powerful but all the while bringing reference quality sound to the table.

The DT headphones were superseded by the DT 770 and 990 PRO, then the PRO X, 2024 ringing in a limited edition of the famed beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO X. The beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO X reproduce everything from 5Hz up to 40kHz, with nominal impedance of 48Ω making them a perfect match for just about any source; a specification that not all products can claim!

The beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO X Limited Edition offer world-class comfort, allowing you to focus on the sound and workflow, without the hindrance of discomfort or pain from the pressure of headphones. For those looking for a solution to monitoring with headphones, or for beyerdynamic devotees who are looking for another set of world-class headphones, the beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO X Limited Edition headphones are your answer.
