Excerpt: These headphones are great as long as you have a headphone amp, otherwise the volume will be low, and the sound quality will not be as clear as it should be. Definitely good for studio applications!
Summary: You can spend a lot of money on headphones. Fine if you're Dr. Dre or a Premiership footballer, but most of us aren't. These cans have been industry standard for a LONG time and they're actually in the price range of mere mortals, so why spend so much more? If they're good enough for most studios, TV stations, and movie studios, they must be good.
Summary: I have had a pair of these headphones for 20 years now and they haven changed a bit i just had to replace the cushions but they have changed a bit i love them, i would recommend these to any one that wants studio quality headphone
Summary: After reading many a review I decided to purchase the DT100 400ohm model on the strength of the positive comments from various forums. Glad I did as these are the best Headphones I've used bar none. My set up is a live one, I'm a drummer in a rock band using a Roland electronic kit, so volume is a constant concern to me. I needn't have worried because the isolation on these 'phones are exceptionally good.
Summary: The beyer Dynamic DT100 are the studio engineers headphone of choice. You'll find them by the dozen in every half decent recording studio all over the world. They're built to last which is essential in a working studio and offer unbeatbale isolation. Soundwise, the bottom end can sound a little thin but then again this is why a lot of people like them so much for recording.
