  • Pros: Comfort, Reference Sound Quality, Excellent clarity, no harsh treble, no boomy bass, Engaging sound
  • Cons: No detachable cable

  • Summary: Coming from a pair of decent Sennheiser HD 558 I didn't expect such a jump in sound quality but I couldn't be happier with the change. Even paired with a low end sound card like the Asus Xonar DGX the DT880 will blow you away. Music, Games, Movies. Especially games, the immersion is fenomenal with these. My friend who was a skeptic about any investment in sound quality was blown away speechless after gaming on my setup for an evening. Do yourself a favor!
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality and build quality
  • Cons: Cable isn't changeable

  • Summary: A great choice for an entry level audiophile grade headphones. 32ohm will provide users the portability option, however, it's semi-open in design so it may not be the best choice to use in a noisy environment.
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality - Made in German. Closer to linear response. 32ohm is relatively easy to drive and does gain a huge boost in SQ with proper amp. Great sound stage, clarity, detail, separation, and image. Excellent build quality (Metal headband)
  • Cons: Headband clamp is a bit tight and uncomfortable wearing for longer session. This will fix itself overtime once the headband has been stretched and paddings settled in.

Excellent Performance at a great price

  • Excerpt: Used primarily for classical music listening and for editing classical music live recordings. The performance of these headphones is outstanding. However, note that I am using the 600 Ohm version with professional audio equipment that can drive a 600 ohm load to levels of up to +20 dBm (~7.73 volts into 600 ohms). The 250 ohm version of this headphone requires significantly less voltage and has identical performance.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Lightweight

The sound I've been looking for

  • Excerpt: I have close to a couple hundred hours on these headphones now. While I would have been happy with the sound if it had remained the same as when new, the sound has smoothed out, gaining more depth and becoming more musical. I use them with a Bellari HA540 tube amp and another tube amp I built from a kit. In other reviews I read, the recommendation was to use these with a tube amp to get the best sound and this combo seems to be working for me.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Excels across the board
  • Cons: Not for Portable Use, Requires good components

Superb!

  • Excerpt: I've spent a few weeks listening to my new DT 880 headphones, and they're wonderful. Comfortable, well-made, and remarkably transparent sounding. The only major complaint I have is that they can be just a little bright -- not enough to be irritating most of the time, but they will accentuate sibilance somewhat. That, and the considerable cost -- but since you can use a good pair of headphones for ten years or more, it's worth budgeting a few dollars for the best.

Excellent product

  • Excerpt: Although I am not an audiophile, I enjoy my stereo system(s) and have prior experience with Beyerdynamic. Very well made product. If you've read the other reviews, I mostly agree. These cans are slightly bright, but very tight. Sound mellows over time. I am driving with Parasound 2100 preamp or directly off Marantz SA8004 SACD player and usually don't turn the volume up past half.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable
