Beyerdynamic DT700 Pro X

X-rated pros – That'll be Beyerdynamic's new DT 700 [€249] and DT900 [€249] in the Pro X range of over-ear headphones. Both use the same neodymium-powered triple-layer dynamic driver with copper-plated voice coil wiring but the 700 is sealed, the 900 open-backed. Included are 180 and 300cm long cables which terminate on the headphone end in mini XLR whilst 3.5mm and 6.35mm plugs serve the load end. The memory-foam ear cushions sleeve in velours and basic performance specs are 48Ω impedance and 5-40'000Hz bandwidth.
