I need help... Dt 770 pro vs Dt 990 pro

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

 

I do a lot of gaming, listening to music and recording videos. I was just about to buy G pro X but then I got recommended the Dts... and man I’m lost. I’ve always wore closed back like the 770 as I prefer not to hear my pc fans and to enjoy silence, taking them off slightly to hear my voice when I was talking. However, seeing all the praise the 990s are getting I’m lost. I have close to no experience with open back headphones and I’m worried that my mic will catch the leaking sound which would mess up my recordings and annoy people in a call. All I really care is directional audio, sound quality and my recordings to remain clear. Are the 770 that worse? Which should I choose? I don’t have an AMP so 80 OHMs is an obvious choice. Thank you for the answers^^

I can't personally speak between those two, but I can say that I love open back headphones.

 

They obviously aren't as "bassy" as closed back, but the sound sounds so much more natural and realistic. And your mic won't pick up any noise. I have a external mic on a boom, and it only caught noise during an old configuration where when I leaned forward the left ear was like 5cm from the mic, basically touching it.

 

Once I sorted that out, I've had zero issues.

eithjer your listening to music too loud or your mic gain is far too high to too close to the side of your face. in regards to the 7709 and 990 pick the one that you think is best for your situation really one is closed one is open both are the best at their price range IMO for gaming.

alright so if your going with an open back beyerdynamic without an amp I would recc the tygr. the lower impedance 990s arent that great the 80 ohm 770 is alright doesnt sounds as good as the 250 ohm but its pretty good. if you have a sensitive mic specially condensers when you are recording it will defitely pick up whatever is pplaying on the 990 but you can kinda bypass that with noise gates. if you want the lowest effort though and just want everything to work the 770 is definitely the pick its not as good as the 990 or tygr in regards to binaural audio but one of the best closed backs if not the best closed back under $200 in that regard.
