  • Summary: I've owned these cans for about four years now and they still sometimes surprise me. A year ago I bought a DT 880 and in some ways the DT 831's are far more enjoyable. The mids are a bit too pronounced, but nice nevertheless. There are sometimes too much highs, depending on the material. I always use an equalizer and when listening with the 831's, I turn the 2 kHz sliders down about 3 dB and the 8 kHz sliders about 4 dB down.

  • Summary: These are excellent closed headphones for the money, if you like their sonic signature, which is certainly not laid-back. They have a degree of clarity and detail I've not heard from any other sub-$400 closed cans, which combined with classic Beyer comfort and nice tight bass makes for a great set of cans. The bass is of the hard, fast, tight variety, definitely not for the HD650 crowd.

  • Summary: How can any human, living or otherwise, fail to appreciate the Santa-Claus-furred-ear-cradling Luftwaffe severity of these utterly closed and bright side-intelligencers?  They deliver the analytical groceries with icicles to spare.   Trust me when I tell you they'll sound even brighter once you're dead.
  • Pros: Bright, analytical, semi-portable.
  • Cons: Bright, analytical, semi-portable.

Der DT 831 - Ein Kopfhörer der Spitzenklasse

privatetester, Ciao
26 June 2003
  • Summary: Hallo, als ersten Test den ich für euch mache, habe ich mir ein Produkt ausgesucht, dies ich im Zweck meiner Hobbys und Interessen eigentlich täglich nutze. Es ist der geschlossene Kopfhörer DT 831 von dem deutschen Hersteller BEYERDYNAMIC. Ich nutze den DT 831 sowohl zum Musikhören und als beigesteter Hobbymusiker auch zum Musik komponieren. Und um es gleich vorweg zu sagen – ich bin wirklich hochzufrieden damit.
  • Pros: hervorragender Klang, guter Tragekomfort, guter Service
  • Cons: zu kurzes Wendelkabel

Meine Ohren sind begeistert Beyerdynamic DT 831

  • Excerpt: Kopfhörer sind immer nur second best, es geht nicht's über den Raumklang. Und doch möchte ich einen guten Kopfhörer nicht missen. Im laufe der Jahre ich schon viele Modelle gehabt (Sennheiser, AKG, Beyerdynamic). Ende letzten Jahres mußte ein neuer her. Im Geschäft ließ man mich in Ruhe alles probieren und hören was ich wollte (Toll: Schauland in Essen!!). Bestimmt eine Stunde 'nervte' ich den Verkäufer.
  • Pros: Klangwunder weil für alle Musikrichtungen geeignet
  • Cons: null, niente, nothing, nada
