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.

Spotify shows how in-app purchases will work in Europe come March
The world’s biggest streaming music service will work a little differently starting March 7 — if you’re in the European Union, anyway. That’s because the EU has passed the Digital Markets Act, which (among other things) means that Apple will have to allow apps like Spotify to use payment systems that can bypass Apple’s cut from in-app sales.
And Spotify is showing off how it’ll work.
