Beyerdynamic re-releases 39-year-old headphones (again!) and I’m still buying ’em


Somewhere in Honolulu, Hawaii, Bruno Mars is about to be born. Ronald Reagan has been privately sworn in for a second term as President of the United States. Careless Whisper by Wham! tops the Billboard Hot 100 singles charts. Heading out to the movies? Good call, you’ll be able to catch The Goonies, Back to the Future and The Breakfast Club. 

The year is 1985 and Beyerdynamic has just released the inaugural DT 770 Pro for some $300 – a major pile of cash for the time. But very soon, these headphones will become a huge success story in two letters (the DT actually stands for ‘Dynamic Telephone’).
