My FAV headphone! The pads are amazing, you can literally listen for hours without fatigue. And the BASS is just beautiful.

The 80 & 250 Ohm ones are also on sale. Which are better ? Also how do these compare to the Sennheiser 599 ?

Depends on your equipment. Lower impedance (80 Ohm) is easier to drive so you can use it with your phone/computer/receiver without any problems. Higher impedance will tend to sound better but will require a dedicated amp to drive them to get the most out of them.

I don't recommend the 250 ohms. They do sound amazing, but they're hard to drive loud unless you have a dedicated headphone amp.

I’ve had my 80ohm versions for almost 15 years now. Bought replacement plush pads off eBay and dyed them black, look and sound great. I do need to order a replacement headband pad (thanks for the reminder). I also own Senn HD 650’s which are better, but for isolation, the 770’s are top notch and comfortable on my basketball sized head. Happily recommend these to anyone. Debating buying my son a set.

It also depends on the sensitivity.

Are these better than the Sennheiser HD8XX?

What's the cable for the DT 770? I'm wondering if I can get this and move my vmoda boom pro mic that I've been using on my Sennheiser 598 to this on. Is the connection 3.5mm?

Edit: Seems the DT 770 cable is not removable

I haven't tried the HD8XX but I've tried the HD800. The HD800 is significantly better in every way, but they're also almost an order of magnitude more expensive, and require equally expensive gear to drive them so they can really shine.

It's just not really a suitable comparison.

More appropriate comparisons to the DT770 Pro would be the Beyer DT880 or DT990, AKG Q701 or K701, Sennheiser HD599 or HD6XX, Audio Technica ATH-AD700x

So only 32 Ohm are $218 and have free shipping via Amazon. Too bad, i would have liked to try the 80 Ohm or 250 Ohm with my FiiO X1

Does the 32 ohms sound worse than the 80 ohms? Does lower impedance have any negatives?

Looking to use them with my MacBook.

Beyer doesn't make it clear why one would choose one over the other. From a technical point of view, the bigger impedance headphones will have a higher damping factor, so the driver will be "tighter". Highs will be more clear and lows will be more controlled. But the difference isn't night and day either, both headphones will sound similar overall.

Generally, I would advise picking the 80 Ohm for a lot of use cases, because 32 ohm is more suited for portable devices, but are you really going to be wearing this full size headphone out in public? But even the 80ohm version can work on a lot of devices and be loud enough
Rich or poor, paying full price for anything is for suckers. Be an informed purchaser by searching RFD for the all-time-low price.

I was looking at moving into my first high-end headphone. Originally I was thinking about the Sony XM4- but a lot of audiophile forums recommended the BT’s. I’ll be driving them with either an iPhone or MacBook- should I get the 32 ohm or 80 ohm? Thanks in advance for any insight!!

I would recommend getting the 80. It is more versatile and would allow you to take advantage of stepping into dedicated DAC/AMP in the future, should you choose.
