  • 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.

  • 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!

22 January 2009
  • 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.

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.

Viel zu leise !!

Dirk, Amazon
11 June 2014
  • Summary: Klanglich ein sehr guter Kopfhörer und der Tragekomfort ist hervorragend ! ABER: Selbst in der 32Ohm Version ist der DT880 ( wie seine KBrüder DT990 und DT770 ) an einem PC für mich zu leise ! ich gebe es mir gerne mal ordentlich über den PC auf die Ohren und mache es dann richtig laut. Mit meinem AKG K-701 ging das TOP.

Studio JA - Hifi NEIN

Ricardo, Amazon
9 January 2014
  • Summary: Deutsche Qualität wie man sie kennt und liebt. Ein genialer Kopfhörer der sanft und perfekt sitzt. Zum Abhören von Studioaufnahmen extrem gut geeignet, da er sehr klar, kühl, analytisch und detailreich ist. Für langes entspanntes Musik hören eher weniger geeignet, da einfach die wärme im Klang fehlt und das Analytische auf Dauer die Ohren doch sehr reizt Für Studioverwendung absolut zu empfehlen.

  • Summary: Veldig bra lydbilde, utrolig balansert! En dyr hodetelefon, i topp klasse. Bedre får du ikke, hvis ikke man beveger seg mot elektrostatisk.
  • Pros: De er store, ligger rundt øre. Lyden er fenomenal, noen vil si at den er lys, er forsåvidt enig. Lydbilde er enormt, du hører alt.
  • Cons: En smule for tynn bass, den "slår" ikke. Kanskje noe lys lyd? ikke at det behøve rå være negativt, kommer helt ann på hva man liker. De er fryktelig tungdrevne.
