I find it kind of confusing to see four versions of the Beyer Dynamic DT770, the best studio headphones stated by some magazines. The ordinary DT770 is for normal consumer like you and me. Pro versions, which we are going to discuss about, comprise 3 options, 80 ohm, 250 ohm and 600 ohm. We will mainly talk about the 600 ohm, version that has the highest price.
There is one question that always bothers musicians with home gear: Should I take this to the studio or just stay home and do it myself? Yeah, anyone wants to have their whole album made at the studio, right? But not everyone can afford that. So what now?
The Project Triangle.
Has anyone told you about the Project Triangle? Engineers often use this tool to illustrate the goals of the project. On top you will be placing the word “good”, then at the left point you put the word “fast” and the right you put the word “cheap”. It’s obvious that there are three, but you can only choose two of it. Either cheap and fast, or fast and good, or good and cheap. No matter what you’re gonna do, you’re going to have to sacrifice one item (which I hope is not “good” because… you need it, dude). The point is, I’m telling you, you can have all of it: a studio quality recording AND doing most of the work at home. Well, IF you know what’s best to do where.
