Beyerdynamic DT770 PRO for $145 (choice of 32/80/250)

You have a choice of 32 or 80 or 250 ohm. They have 3 meter glued-on cables. The 250 has a coiled cable while the other two are straight. The accessories package is spartan, a drawstring bag (the plus with these is that you can use them for many other headphones as well ~ unlike custom-fit cases that are limited to other use) and the almost always obligatory adapter (in this case a 1/8″ to 1/4″).

These will ship in late February from Massdrop. No mention of warranty in the listing.

EU: Used Beyerdynamic DT770 (80 ohm) for 80 euro

We have our first good deal of the 20% off Warehouse Deals promotion at the Amazons. It is at Amazon Germany and you can get the closed-back over-ear Beyerdynamic DT-770 (80 ohm version) dropping from 100~ to 80~ euro. Shipping is free in Germany-Austria-Etc but extra for everybody else…

NOTE that the discount works only on listings sold by Amazon Warehouse Deals (not marketplace sellers). This applies to all Amazons, USA, Germany, etc [they can’t (yet?) universally force marketplace sellers to take a 20% off hit on their sales] Here’s an example:

Beyerdynamic DT770 (80 ohm) w/$50 promo GC for $179

Also part of the Newegg Black Friday you can get the new condition Beyerdynamic DT770 (80 ohm) closed-back over-ear going for $179 with a $50 promotional NewEgg gift card, sold and shipped by NewEgg actual. Limit up to two units per customer at the sale price…

Assuming you have no trouble spending the $50 promotional gift card in the future at NewEgg on things you want or need, then it’s almost like getting it for $129…

Beyerdynamic DT-177X Closed Over-Ears down to $380

The discounting party continues at Massdrop where they have put on sale for a limited time the new condition closed-back over-ear Beyerdynamic DT-177X going for $380 with free US shipping. This is an in-stock drop so it will ship quickly (there is an estimate of one business day after purchase).

This is a “Massdrop X” product, as the “X” in the name suggests, a co-operation between Beyerdynamic and Massdrop, however, there is no mention of a warranty in the listing. Typically “X” products come with a warranty since they are made in co-operation with the manufacturer. There is a new forum discussion on this very topic but nothing conclusive is posted there…

PS: as a refresher for those not familiar, the 7s are closed-back, the 8s are semi-open and the 9s are open in the DT-??? and DT-1??? lines of studio headphones…

EU: Used Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO (250 ohm) for 91 euro

The new condition Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO (250 ohm) open-back over-ears going for 122 euro at Amazon Germany, but if you are fond of used headphones, you can get it for around 91 euro by various sellers through Amazon Warehouse Deals… It averages 4.4 out of 5 based on over 500 customer reviews and it has over 130 answered-questions by viewers like you…

Given the 250 ohm, some kind of amplification is probably needed unless you have a mobile device with a really good built-in amp. When in doubt and you can’t try it out yourself, there’s websites and forums 🙂

Used Beyerdynamic DT990 PRO (250) for $104

If you are not a perfectionist, the Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO (250 ohm) are available in “Used – Acceptable” condition [check description over there] for $104 with free shipping by Amazon Warehouse Deals actual. The description there says “major cosmetic damages”, thus the “not a perfectionist” comment. Since they don’t have pictures of the item, the “damages” are left up to the imagination 🙂

EU: Beyerdynamic DTX910 Open Over-Ears for 35 euro

On the budget side of open-back, Amazon Germany is offering the new condition Beyerdynamic DTX910 open-back over-ears for 35 euro with free shipping within Germany. It averages 3.9 out of 5 based on 83 customer reviews and it has 20 answered questions. It’s obviously not going to outperform the DT880/DT990 but it also costs 1/3rd of their price.

Speaking of which, a number of models of the DT 770-880-990 line continue to sell for around 120 euro at Amazon Germany. I suppose that’s one of the benefits of a company selling in its home country 🙂
