Excerpt: I tried B&W P7 and purchased PSB M4U headphones before I bought these. I found significant difference between the PSBs and DT880. PSB was nice but this DT880s are way more comfortable; with PSBs I started to feel pain after 30mins, with these I forget the fact that they are on, after 30 mins. Being an open can it has a more natural feel to the sound except of course, I cannot isolate myself from the surrounding as easily.
Excerpt: The audio quality of these headphones is great. I am able to hear very fine details in a mix across the full frequency spectrum. I use these in tandem with my Sennheiser HD 280 Pros, which are closed-back. The semi-open construction of the DT 880 PROs gives a much more realistic stereo field and open sound, so I now only use the HD 280s for tracking with microphones when closed back headphones are really a necessity.
Excerpt: I've only had them a week, but so far am very happy with them. They have a flat uniform response across frequencies that makes them useful for mixing music. I mix in my room with Focal Solo 6 speakers and move into the DT880 for checking precise details. The two work well in combination together. After longer use, I find them a little tight physically on my head. Perhaps I just need to find the proper adjustment. They are not fatiguing on the ears, however.
Pros: Clear Sound, Lightweight, Not Hyped In Any Frequenc
