Sound quality description
The following review was tested with a FiiO M15.
Behringer BH770 has a sound signature with an emphasis on high frequencies.
Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.
Lows / Bass
For low-frequency monitoring, the BH770 is of little use. Electric bass sounds thin and drum kicks are scuzzy and lacking in weight. Rhythms feel light but lack impact.
If you want to monitor low frequencies, it is better to use the TASCAM TH-06 or use earphones.
The midrange of the BH770 sounds bright and detailed, but lacks resolution, so it sounds flat with no sense of depth and a poor sense of tonality.
A flat midrange with little depth perception might perhaps lead one to believe that the sound is "flat," but in fact the depth is emphasized in the upper midrange, and if you listen to violins and woodwinds, you will hear that the axis is not firmly upright. In other words, it is not a flat sound. It is simply a poor reproduction of the three-dimensionality of music.
The sound is bright and hard, and the midrange construction is reproduced well. It is monitor-like in this respect, but the sharpness is restrained, so the sound is not too harsh to the ear for a sound of high brightness and luminosity. Still, the high frequencies are at a level that is too much, so the sound is quite taxing on the ears.
Highs / Treble
The first impression might be that it sounds good because the high frequency range emphasizes a sense of clarity quite a bit. I was also initially quite attracted to the delicate, detail-oriented listening experience.
Sibilance tends to sound a bit irritating, and sounds like "ch" and "th" are quite sharp, but the sting of the sa line seems less in comparison. Still, some songs can sound harsh.
The high frequency range is rather good, so you might think the sound is similar to an open type.
Sound quality general comment
- Original Sound Fidelity: A-
- Recommendation: C
- Personal preference: C
You may have seen the embedded video at the beginning of this article where he says something like, "The sound sounds flat, but I found that I got tired of listening to it easily and stopped using it. Some of you may have read my review so far and know exactly what he was talking about.
My first impression of the BH770's was that they sounded detailed and didn't sound too bad, but after spending a little time listening to them, I quickly lost interest in using these headphones due to their cheap sound and uncomfortable listening experience. I like the cymbal crash only because it is subtle, discrete, and exhilarating to listen to.

If you are looking for a low-cost monitor headphone with excellent analytical capabilities, the Behringer BH770 might be a good candidate. However, it falls short in resolution, and its overall specs are not quite up to the price level.
I recommend the CLASSIC PRO CPH7000 as an analytical monitor headphones for mixing in this price range.
