Beyerdynamic DT 240 Pro Monitoring Headphone Review (Updated)
The studio-accommodating Beyerdynamic DT 240 Pro headphones convey precise, fresh sound at a refreshingly reasonable cost. Studio-accommodating headphones are typically entirely costly. For $99, the Beyerdynamic DT 240 Pro are a refreshingly moderate circumaural (over-the-ear) match for performers, podcasters, producers, and any other person who needs to screen with precision.
A lightweight casing makes them helpful in a hurry, and a separable link adds to the esteem. Over this, the earphones convey precise bass profundity and strong clearness in the highs. So without precedent for a while, we can add another Editors’ Choice to the financial plan benevolent studio earphones domain.
Genius sound earphones regularly avoid trendy embellishments for solace and execution, yet Beyerdynamic deals with an extra, cool look with the matte dark DT 240 Pro. The circumaural earcups, which are plastic without looking modest, house dynamic drivers and complete a strong activity of packing down encompassing commotion and also releasing next to no sound, making them perfect for following. Their external boards are embellished with the DT 240 Pro name, while the Beyerdynamic logo shows up on the plastic closures to the headband.
The earpads and headband are liberally cushioned and shrouded in fake cowhide. They feel awesome and will keep on doing as such over long listening periods an absolute necessity for studio-situated earphones. The included sound link can be associated with either earpiece, and the earcups themselves can without much of a stretch flip far from the ear as they regularly do on DJ earphones.
The earphones send with one removable link an uncompromising, half-snaked wire with no inline remote. We don’t see this as a negative, since in case you’re recording with the DT 240 Pro, an inline remote will be of little utilize, and the cost is low enough that we don’t expect a second link alternative. The included link is perfect for studio and recording applications its somewhat looped 49-inch configuration can stretch out up to approximately 10 feet. It ends in a 3.5mm association and boats with a quarter-inch connector. The main other included embellishment is a dark drawstring defensive sack.
We tried the DT 240 Pro utilizing an Apogee Symphony I/O as our sound source, and additionally an iPhone 6s. With both sound sources, the earphones convey a strong sound ordeal. On tracks with exceptional sub-bass substance, as knife The’s “Quiet Shout,” you get a lot of pounding bass reaction, however it’s nothing contrasted and earphones that intentionally help bass significantly. The bass reaction here is precise this track happens to draw out the sub-bass a considerable amount, and the earphone’s drivers mirror that, however it never sounds over the best, nor does the offset with the highs go into disrepair. Additionally, at best, impulsive listening levels, the drivers don’t contort, which isn’t generally the situation with $100 earphones on this testing track.
Bill Callahan’s “Drover,” a track with far less profound bass nearness in the blend, gives us a superior feeling of the DT 240 Pro’s general sound mark. The drums on this track sound full and round, yet not helped past their characteristic levels. Callahan’s baritone vocals get a perfect mix of low-mid lavishness and high-mid treble edge, and the guitar strums and higher enroll percussive hits additionally advantage from a solid high-mid and high recurrence nearness in the DT 240 Pro’s conveyance. This is an adjusted, exact sound mark it can repeat profound lows when they’re in the blend, however it doesn’t concoct them.
On Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “No Church in the Wild,” the kick drum circle gets the perfect measure of high-mid nearness to highlight its assault, punching through the different layers of the blend. The sub-bass synth hits are conveyed with commendable nearness. On vigorously bass-supported sets, these synth hits can frequently stable excessively loud and do fight with the vocals. Through the DT 240 Pro, the vocal exhibitions are conveyed with amazing high recurrence lucidity and never solid undermined by the great low recurrence content. Maybe there’s a smidge of included sibilance in there, yet it’s insufficient to make things sound oddly etched or excessively splendid. Once more, this is a really exact recurrence reaction, particularly for earphones in this value go.
Symphonic tracks, similar to the opening scene in John Adams’ The Gospel According to the Other Mary, sound fantastic through the DT 240 Pro. There’s maybe the scarcest piece of low recurrence boosting, drawing out the lower enroll instrumentation somewhat. However, it’s the higher enroll metal, strings, and vocals that claim the spotlight, and they’re conveyed with lucidity and detail.

For a significant drawn-out period of time, our most loved moderate studio-accommodating over-ear earphones have been the Sennheiser HD 280 Pro. They remain an incredible choice, yet come up short on the separable link given by the Beyerdynamic DT 240 Pro. We’re additionally enthusiasts of the Sennheiser HD6 Mix, and customer earphones that should be studio sets, similar to the Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro and Sony MDR-1A, however the costs on these models shift a lot.
