I had to get used to the specific sound of the T70 in the beginning but this is one of those headphones that grows on you the more you listen to it. Compared to an open headphone the soundstage isn’t huge but for a closed headphone it’s reasonably good. In exchange the well isolating T70 gives you a lovely balance and a very detailed sound while not being over analytical. The Beyer’s home sound signature is present of course but it is in a non-fatiguing way. Very well layered and crystal-clear sounding is one way to describe it. Instrumental separation is great and it is an overall quality sound.
I can’t deny, as said above, it is a brighter sounding headphone but I don’t mean that in a bad way. I find the mids and the bass to be presented in a whole better way as say with a DT990. Bass quality with the T70 is excellent, it’s very detailed and deep. Don’t mistake this t70 for a basshead headphone, therefore it’s missing some punch or “oompf”. You should look at it as a headphone with bass quality and not quantity. The mids in my opinion could have been a little bit more present, but in all honestly they are very nice. The highs are still the T70’s strongest point. Very clear, precise and detailed without ever sounding harsh. Eventually it all comes down to personal preference but overall it just sounds like “quality” to me.
My girlfriend likes me to use the T70 at all times because it isolates that well yet I prefer using it especially while listening to jazz, classical and vocally strong music like Melody Gardot, Nigel Kennedy and Lisa Ekdahl. I feel they are best for those musical styles but I also enjoyed the T70’s very much while listening to Elvis Presley, Lykke Li, Bob Marley and popular music like LMFAO’s “Sexy and I know it”, Gotye’s “Somebody that I used to know” and Rihanna’s “Man Down”. These aren’t my favorite headphones for rock music though, the guitars just don’t sound right to me. Big exception to that is the latest Primus album “Green Naugahyde”which absolutely rocks with the Beyer T70.
