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: 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
