Reviews and Problems with Beyer Dynamic DT 880

Showing 1-10 of 12

Beyerdynamic knows high-end audio, and it shows on the DT 880.

  • Conclusion: Despite the option for a 32Ω set of headphones, nobody should really be considering the DT 880s—or any open backed headphones—for mobile use. However, if used in the right situation, these cans are gold—despite the silvery exterior. If you're looking at buying the Beyerdynamic DT 880, chances are good that you're looking for something to sit by the computer or home hi-fi system, so audio quality and comfort will be the most important factors in your buying decision.

Beyer DT 880 Review

  • Excerpt: It is a favorite among professional recording engineers for its accuracy, and a favorite among music lovers for its clean, open, uncolored and faithful-to-the-concert-hall sound. I greatly prefer this Beyer DT 880 to the far more expensive Sennheiser HD 800 .

Beyerdynamic Headphones Are Classic Cans for Modern Times

12 June 2011
  • Excerpt: The Beyerdynamic DT 880 harkens back to a time when headphones were still tools, not fashion statements. It’s the antithesis of today’s streamlined, plastic pieces of head candy. In fact, it’s probably no accident the latest version doesn’t look all that different from the first pair that rolled off the assembly line in 1980. Obviously, the 87-year-old German audio company felt there was little need mess with what already works.
  • Pros: Like a pair of velvet slippers for your ears. These are some of the comfiest cans I’ve ever put on my head. Zero ear fatigue even after epic listening sessions. Classic design cues and quality materials make for one gorgeous, yet tough, headphone. Detailed soundstage with tight, controlled bass. 32-ohm version is easy to drive and great for your iPod or laptop. Padded carrying case included.
  • Cons: Just as big and bulky as your dad’s old cans — not the most travel-friendly option. Semi-open design means some sonic leakage, so anyone sitting next to you will be listening to your music, too. Treble can be a bit harsh at times.

  • Excerpt: Beyerdynamic appears to have taken a leaf out of the car industry's book by keeping a product name from years ago, but then completely changing the design. No doubt this will ensure havoc on eBay in years to come...

Beyerdynamic DT880 Premium review

11 October 2006
  • Summary: These headphones should be worn with matching silver smoking jacket and slippers. They feel so comfortable, it’s as though you’re putting your ears to bed. But you’re not. Don your smoking jacket for these You are, in fact, treating them to a beautifully emotive lesson in headphones. These cans very nearly reach aural perfection; stick on Radiohead’s OK Computer and you’ll hear every stretched sinew in all its gloriously breathy beauty.

  • Excerpt: Самые дорогие наушники теста «живут» в алюминиевом кейсе с ручкой для переноски. У DT880 полуоткрытый тип оформления — semi-open. На гибкое оголовье надевается кожаный чехол с застежками (!), смягчающий касание к темени. Настройка производится выдвижными металлическими полозьями и вилками; чаши в вилках поворачиваются на 30Ґ в вертикальной плоскости. Крупные амбушюры — мягчайший велюр. Сидят великолепно.

  • Summary: Звучание музыки можно охарактеризовать как живое и яркое. Слышны абсолютно все частоты музыкального материала. Более того, на некоторых композициях мы были поражены деталями, которые до этого никогда не слышали ранее. Звуки, звуки, звуки. Сегодня ни один человек не обходится без аудио-периферии. Но не всегда можно пользоваться обычными колонками - согласитесь, они хороши на концерте или в частном доме, но никак не в многоквартирном муравейнике.
