The Tesla drivers are a part of the outstanding features of the closed 250 ohm headphones. These drivers, which are being used in professional studio headphones for the first time, are characterized by a high magnetic flux density for significantly enhanced performance and accuracy. 

A detailed and balanced sound is essential in a recording studio. The DT 1770 PRO easily meets these requirements. Tesla 2.0 systems offer maximum efficiency and ensure precise, distortion-free sound quality with the finest resolution, and impressive spatial properties even at the most powerful output levels. The DT 1770 PRO is the ideal headphone for live applications as the extremely high efficiency drivers ensure a perfect listening experience in loud environments.

A triple-layer compound membrane in the DT 1770 PRO reduces unwanted partial vibrations, allowing a previously unknown level of brilliance in the reproduction of overtones, as well as thoroughly impressive bass reproduction. Sound events of any kind are reproduced precisely, and a dynamic range from pianissimo to fortissimo is recreated effortlessly.

In addition to sound quality, the new DT 1770 PRO offers an attractive design. The clear, aesthetic contours reflect the heritage of the legendary DT 770 PRO, while numerous details add fresh accents. Fine materials ensure durability, and captivate viewers with their exclusive look and feel.

Comfort plays a decisive role in mixing and mastering applications. High-quality materials and the ideal headband pressure of the DT 1770 PRO ensure maximum comfort, and a perfect fit for the daily studio work.

The exchangeable ear cushions are covered with soft velour or high-quality artificial leather. Despite the remarkably high ambient noise reduction, the circumaural ear cups fit so comfortably that even long sessions will seem like a pleasant, relaxing listening experience. The sturdy, spring-steel headband is adjustable, and equipped with exchangeable padding. 

Thanks to the wide-range of high-quality accessories, the DT 1770 PRO dynamic premium headphones are ready to tackle any audio task. The included coiled and straight cables are single-sided, and attach securely to a lockable Mini XLR connector. A hard case protects the headphones and accessories during storage and transportation.
