Great sound, but a little uncomfortable

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
Excerpt: I purchased these DT 880's as an upgrade to my Senheiser 515's. I read some favorable reviews and the product doesn't dissapoint! I enjoy acoustic music (for which these are supposed to excel) as well as pop/rock, country, indie, electronic, whatever, etc. If you've got a good recording, these are probably going to sound good! The DT 880's are very comfortable to wear. I've worn them for up to a couple of hours at a time so far. Sounds great out of the box!
Excerpt: I use these headphone for mixing and I love them. They give me a pretty good reference compared to my Yamaha studio monitors, especially when I have to mix down tracks late at night in my home studio.
Pros: Clear Sound, Comfy, Easy To Use, Lightweight
Excerpt: Sound: After leaving them playing for a day from a selection of CDs(rock, rap, classical, spoken-word comedy, and a classical album) at the loudest volume I could comfortably listen to them, I feel their sound has been optimized. The oft-mentioned upper-midrange recess is actually not that obvious, yet is about where a Fletcher-Munson curve might suggest.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile
Excerpt: i use this with a JDS labs objective2 amp to listen to all kinds of crazy music. this setup makes 320 kbps MP3 files sound like the way a 240p youtube video looks in comparison to a 1080p bluray (a flac). you can hear the sounds from all around you theres a SPACE going on here that ive never witnessed before. if you want to hear how music REALLY sounds then get these head phones and a good amp to go with them.
Summary: You may wonder why you would need a high-end pair of studio monitoring headphones for ham radio use. Put on a pair of these and you will immediately know the answer. First, these phones fit around, rather than on the ears, making them very comfortable, even when worn for long periods. Frequency response is flat from 35 Hz all the way up to 20,000 Hz or so.
