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 .
Summary: The Beyerdynamic DT 880s are extra comforatable and their sound is certainly audiophile level, but stereo imaging isn't as wide open as other top contenders.
Pros: The Beyerdynamic DT 880 headphones are among the most comfortable on the market, and they come packaged in a gorgeous padded aluminum storage case. The headphones use a standard miniplug connector but include a 1/4-inch adapter and a 15-foot extension cord.
Cons: The DT 880s are expensive, and ill suited for use with the iPod.
Conclusion: If you want Star Trek styling, these aren't the headphones for you. And
if you're shepherding your pennies, it's not hard to find headphones that
cost half as much as the DT 880s, and certainly aren't only half as good.
Summary: If you like lots of high-frequency sparkle from
your headphones, the Beyerdynamic DT 880s may be just the ticket. Similarly, if your
headphone amp has rolled-off highs, the DT 880s could compensate. However, matching
strength with weakness is the wrong way to create a satisfying playback system. You want
good-sounding components across the board, not good sound mixed with mediocre or bad.
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...
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.
