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.
