Beyerdynamic’s DT 770 Pro X offers premium features for less

Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro X closed-back wired headphones.

If you need a robust, closed-back set of wired studio headphones, Beyerdynamic has a new option that could be very appealing. The DT 770 Pro X brings two of the best features of the more expensive $269 DT 700 Pro X down to a $199 price.

Based on the popular $169 DT 770 Pro, the new Pro X model gets a detachable cable system with a mini-XLR connection. The included 9.8-foot cable has 3.5mm jack at the other end, and comes with a 3.5mm-to-6.3mm adapter. You can swap it out for other lengths and other connector types, or simply replace it if it becomes damaged — something you can’t do on the DT 770 Pro.

The DT 770 Pro X also benefits from Beyerdynamic’s Stellar.45 drivers, which were previously only available in the company’s pricier DT 700 Pro X and DT 900 Pro X models. These drivers have an improved efficiency when compared to the company’s classic drivers. Beyerdynamic says that Stellar.45 is able to convert electrical signals to sound with a similar degree of efficiency to that of its flagship Tesla transducers — almost identical volumes given the same input.

The Stellar.45 drivers also have a 48-ohm impedance, making them easy to drive by a wide variety of devices — not just high-powered headphone amplifiers.

Finally, Beyerdynamic has given the design of the headband a slight tweak: there’s now a recess at the top of the padding, which reduces contact with the pressure-sensitive fontanelle area of the skull.

The company says the DT 770 Pro X will initially be available in limited supply but plans for a wider general release in the coming months.

It's one of the hottest LG TV deals going on right now. And, unlike a lot of Woot deals we've seen, this TV is brand new, so you'll be the first one to use it. But you'll have to act fast, as this deal is disappearing when today does, lasting just a hair past midnight over here on the US's East. And that's if it doesn't sell out before then. To pick up your LG C3 OLED TV at $1,697, $903 off from the usual $2,600, just tap the button below. And, to get more information about the offer, plus see what are thoughts are about the TV, keep on reading.

Why you should buy the 65-inch LG C3 OLED TV
In a lot of ways, this TV feels like all screen, no edge due to its slim bezel. If you have a darker wall the slim bezel may nearly blend in. This will help the immersion into the worlds the TV wants to bring to you. The LG C3 OLED bills itself as a sort of gaming TV, using a game optimizer to bring you instantly good settings during gameplay, a game dashboard for quick launches, and the GeForce Now cloud gaming suite will deliver tons of games directly to your TV with no console required.

Apple Music is one of the go-to streaming services for all things melodic and melody-adjacent. Hosting over 88,000 million subscribers globally and featuring upwards of 100 million tracks from the leading artists of today, Spotify's nemesis has plenty to love.

If you're a new subscriber, Apple Music gives you a break-in period of one free months of service. After the trial period, memberships are billed on a monthly or yearly cycle with the most popular Individual plan coming it at $11 per month / $109 per year. While that's on par with the average cost for other music streamers, saving a buck here or there is never a bad thing. While college students can get Apple Music for $6/month, another way to save on your subscription is with an Apple Music family plan for $17 per month.
