Excerpt: The DT-250's don't sound spectacular but they sound accurate in the LF and MF the high end tails off a bit and so they fall just short of being the perfect headphone. In contrast to the DT770 Pro 80 Ohm they make a nice reference and between the two they represent most critical listening/mixing...
Excerpt: I bought the Beyerdynamic dt250-80ohm model because I already have and love the dt25-250 ohm model and was also just curious to see how the 80 ohm version sounded. The 80ohm version is slightly louder at the same volume level against the 250 ohm version, is bassier, has less high frequency extension...
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: I purchased my DT-250s for home studio production usage and although I only have used them for a handful of hours at this point, I already know I love them. After deciding on this model first and then coming full circle back to it, I am completely satisfied with my purchase.
Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Powerful
Excerpt: Plugged to the line out jack on an on board sound card, I use these headphones at the computer for music while studying and surfing the web. Also have used these while playing starcraft 2, counter-strike source and battle-field bad company 2.
Excerpt: In conjunction with a Mytek stereo dac, the listening experience is phenomenal. The highs are smooth, never harsh. The clarity is brilliant. The lows are well separated and not exaggerated. Hands down the best headphones you can buy for the price, and then some.
Excerpt: I wasn't completely sure about getting these, I mean... really? Is any set of headphones really worth [$]??? Much less the [$] these normally sell for! A friend of mine talked me into getting a nice quality set of cans, and helped me pick out this pair as my first pair of quality headphones.
Excerpt: I use them for listening to music on my PC without disturbing others. They are pretty neutral with a slightly recessed treble. The bass is pretty tight and punchy. The only thing I don't like so much about these headphones is the clamping force on the head.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Powerful, Professional Functions, Versatile
Summary: These DT-250 (80 ohm) are just flat-out the best sub-$500 headphones I've yet heard. I found the Shure SRH840s way too bright, and returned my DT770s for being too dark.
The soundstage is as wide as you could hope for with closed-back cans.
Summary: I own the 80Ohm model, do note that the 250Ohm model should sound very different.
Looks: You'll look like you're working for the sound crew of a broadcast company.
Construction: Solid materials used through out. Some weak points where the headphone and cups meet.
Pros: Potentially excellent sound(250Ohm), comfort, modular construction
Summary: Unbelievable value for money these headphones produce professional levels of sounds I can't stop listening through them. I can only describe them as finding a new dimension to music especially if you've listened through earphones or the cheaper / endorsed branded sets..
