  • Summary: I got my 2005 DT880s about three months ago. My first impression was "Wow! Are these comfy!" The gray velour feels absolutely wonderful. I still find them extremely comfortable, and even use them for extended late night movie viewing sessions. My second impression was, "Wow, are these bright!

  • Summary: The DT880 is a reference grade set of cans. The low bass extension and quality is similar to the K601, but since it is semi-open, or semi-closed, whichever way you look at it, the bass seems a bit different. It's mainly a psychoacoustic phenomenon that fools you into thinking the DT880 is fuller, but it's not. The K601 mids are a bit better, but then that's AKG's strong point anyway. You don't beat AKG in the midrange at the same price point.

  • Summary: While not quite in the class of the AKG K701, the updated DT880 has a rounded metal cup design and competitive value that makes this an attractive audiophile phone. In many cases, this can be distingushed from the 2003 model by a flat metal cup design (and the aluminum carrying case). These have become less of a bargain recently compared to a few comparable phones. - If you're a fan of the DT880's spacious soundstage, the latest version has even more spaciousness.

"Fantastic pair of headphones, my most used piece of audio equipment"

TreDay, Audiofanzine
3 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I first purchased these almost 5 years ago and they've been my "daily driver" since then. One of the most important aspects I was looking for in a set of headphones was comfort. Prior to these, I owned a pair of Grado SR60is and while they were okay sound quality wise, there were murdering my ears. I wear headphones for hours a day, so I want...

  • Summary: Very weak sounding headphones with zero bass. They have great highs and mids and are supremely comfortable to wear but I found the sound frustratingly boring.

Need Serious Amping

MrBKR, Amazon
29 April 2013
  • Summary: I'll make this a quick one. Sound performance is not really in question here (if you know Beyer). Comfort is supreme (pretty much best you can get, end of). But, these 600 Ohm models will take a serious amount of driving. For any decent volume levels, this means proper amplification (not your i-gadget/phone/lap-top, but something with a proper Headphone Amp)! They also leak sound, a lot, so do not consider if you need sound isolation.
