Creality Ender-5 Pro: Review
Initially making theatre speakers, the “Elektrotechnische Fabrik Eugen Beyer” successfully converted to broadcast equipment. Beyer introduced its first dynamic headphones, the DT48, in 1937. The pioneering dynamic headphone will be continuously produced until 2013! Eugen Beyer’s descendants are still the owners of Beyerdynamic. A risky choice that led to many successes: the first wireless microphone (transistophone) in 1962; the first dynamic headphones to compete with electrostatics, the DT880 in 1980; and the DT770 and DT990 in 1985, designed for audiophiles rather than studios. Beyer released their first “audiophile” system, the T1, in 2009. an innovative headset with a dynamic Tesla transducer that can generate a magnetic field greater than the Tesla. The T50p (nomad) and DT1350 (studio) will also have this feature in 2010.
Since then, Beyerdynamic has fitted Tesla transducers to various headphones. Nomadic (Aventho), in-ear (Xelento), professional (DT1990/1770 Pro), and sedentary (Amiron)—all made in Germany!

How are Pro and Pro X different?
The Pro X looks similar to the Pro Series. Earpads, headband, and attitude remain the same. The redesigned driver (STELLAR.45), removable XLR cable, improved build, and, most importantly, better sensitivity allow you to use those headphones without a high-power amplifier.
Beyerdynamic DT 700 Pro X
The Beyerdynamic DT 700 Pro X, an improved version of the DT770 Pro, is a popular music headset for recording and monitoring. The German manufacturer called its closed-back headphones “detailed, powerful, and vibrant” for noisy or congested surroundings.
Beyerdynamic DT 900 ProX
The open-back Beyerdynamic DT 900 Pro X uses the same driver as the DT 700 Pro X for critical listening, mixing, and mastering. As you’ll see in next week’s review, little tweaks can have significant effects, as the brand calls this one “detailed, spacious, and transparent.”
The Beyerdynamic DT 700 Pro X has wide ear cups, grey ear cushions, and a huge headband, just like its predecessor. A design almost 40 years old that changed somewhat with each iteration. If you look closer, those little but significant gains are obvious. A little cushion is on the bottom of the smaller headband. After removing the headband’s base plastic clamps, Beyer rounded the steel ear cup bands. Finally, examine those cups. They lost weight and were smoothed out after losing the huge DT 770 Pro band in the middle. The new DT 700 Pro X has a simplistic name engraving that I like better. These may seem like small upgrades to a newbie, but connoisseurs see them as a much-needed overhaul for a headphone that deserved it.
The build quality is excellent, and the Beyerdynamic DT 700 Pro X, one of my cheapest headsets, still looks and feels like the best. You can tell they’re built to last when you pull them out of the package. The cups are made of tough plastic, the headband of spring steel, and now that the wire can be replaced, those headphones might be used daily, dumped in a backpack, and still work after months. This won’t happen with velour ear pads. But those can be replaced if needed! Finally, cable. It’s identical to the previous one but has a mini-XLR termination, so you may choose the proper one for recording. The headset lacks a balanced option, although that’s typical for a “professional headset.” Overall, it’s gorgeous and solid. Like that!
Comfortable, the Beyerdynamic DT 700 Pro X is designed for long workouts. After using it for hours, it feels like a different beast than the previous version. The clamping is perfect, the huge earpads encircle my ears, and the headset is so balanced that it almost disappeared on my head. This headset is heavy, but the craftsmanship was so good that I never had to remove it. Add the DT 700 Pro X’s luxurious velour earpads, and it’s the most comfy headphone I own right now.
Unsurprisingly, the Beyerdynamic DT 700 Pro X blocks noise well. The headphones quickly muted railroad sounds, subway closing-door sirens, and crowd-noise ‘brouhaha’. The “click” disappeared when I wore the headphones and played some music at low volume on my office mechanical keyboard.
The STELLAR.45 transducers’ newly developed, three-layer speaker diaphragm with an integrated damping layer provides the 700 PRO X’s unique sound and selling point, according to Beyer. This driver system performs well on all playback devices. It claims that the new transducer’s rapid reaction and lightweight coil deliver a detailed transient response and distortion-free sound even at high sound pressure levels. Our testing showed that the 700 PRO X delivered a balanced response across the range, with little or no sub-harmonic distortion, a robust yet not overpowering low-end, and exceptional top-end detail. As a studio monitor, its roughly neutral frequency response is harsh, vivid, and strong rather than warm. The lower impedance of the new drivers makes them louder than the 770 PRO, and they compensate for any loss of separation or stereo imaging. Boxiness in the high mids and a minor sibilance boost on certain vocal recordings initially appeared, although this seemed to fade as tests progressed. The soundstage was broader than most closed-back cans, and panned instruments in mixes we knew well seemed exactly where they should be in the stereo image.
