Beyerdynamic is re-releasing 39 year old headphones (again!) and I’m still buying them

Somewhere in Honolulu, Hawaii, Bruno Mars is about to be born. Ronald Reagan has been personally sworn in for a second term as President of the United States. Carefree whispering by Wham! tops the Billboard Hot 100 singles charts. On the way to the movies? Good call, you can catch him The Goonies, Back to the future And The breakfast club.

It’s 1985 and Beyerdynamic has just released the first DT 770 Pro for about $300 – a big pile of money at the time. But very soon, these two-letter headphones will become a huge success story (the DT actually stands for ‘Dynamic Telephone’).
