Beyerdynamic has made some of the most venerable sealed-back headphones ever in the industry, like the now-discontinued DT770 model. Their newly engineered 'Tesla' voice coil design seriously ups the audio ante for audiophilic listeners needing ambient noise attenuation and mild isolation for their listening environs. Majorly improved resolution and musical detail and with much wider dynamics are the advancements found in the T70, along with a soundstage image spaciousness that is particularly impressive in a closed-back headphone. 250 Ohm impedance ideal for headphone amps.

The Beyerdynamic T70 has some pretty big headphone shoes to fill. Coming hot on the heels of one of the longest-lived sealed audiophile headphone model lines ever created (the famed DT770 series), the Beyer T70 design offers attractive updates on the classic DT770 sound while improving on the overall construction and durability of those classic German-made closed-back cans. The world-beating wearing comfort legendary with the DT770 remains thankfully intact in the T70 as does the soft velour cushion padding and non-clamping, highly ergonomic fit; no question in the realm of full-size circumaural headphones, the Beyer folks are doing something right with the near-perfect comfort of these large cans. Sonically, the T70 audio improvements are more modest and hew quite close to the original DT770 presentation, which may be a very good thing for listeners seeking that Teutonic sense of musical balance and even-toned instrumental/vocal textures that Beyerdynamic is famous for. Bass is nicely round but also tightly controlled below 150Hz, so the T70 is not a bass-hogging headphone although we do hear a tad more presence and warmth in the lower mids when compared to the original DT770 bass response. Acoustically, we feel the strengths of this headphone make it a great candidate for symphonic/classical recordings and folks intent upon maximum resolution of low-level, nearly obscured mids/highs musical detail which the newly-developed T70 'Tesla' voice coils resolve to the front of the mix in almost revelatory ways.
The Beyerdynamic T70 headphone has grey/silver-colored rounded earcups padded with a durable velour material and provides a secure but comfortable fit around the ears; it's easy to wear and light-feeling for a large full-size sealed headphone. The headband design minimizes undue clamping force and is also covered by a cushy padding that is pleasantly soft. The headband mechanism is designed with durable metal alloy supports into the earcups, and a (non-detachable) straight cable exits from the left side. The 9-foot long cord is terminated to a threaded 1/8" (3.5mm) 'mini' plug; a full-size 1/4" inch gold-plated adapter plug is included. As a plus, a leather soft-sided, foam-padded storage/travel bag is provided with all T70 models.
