  • 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.

  • Excerpt: I've been using these headphones for years, they're one of my favorite pairs. First of all, it comes with a couple of nice accessories. You get a nice velvet bag that cinches closed to carry and store these phones when you're not using them, which is a nice touch. The input jack on these is a 1/8" standard stereo jack, but they give you ...

" Good memories"

  • Excerpt: The DT831 is a good catch-all trs at Beyer. I cost the MODEL about 7 years ago in a store and I found INTERESTED trs. It is the grave of trs equilibrated acute trs dynamic, and with a good DEFINITIONS. All styles of music are broadcast with a good EHJV, but can be a bit too much for the classic, much like the DT911. It is ...

"De bons souvenirs"

  • Excerpt: Le DT831 est un très bon passe partout de chez Beyer. J'ai écouté ce modèle il y a environ 7 ans dans un magasin et je l'ai trouvé très intéressant. Il est très équilibré du grave à l'aigu, très dynamique, et avec un bonne définition. Tous les styles de musique sont bien retransmis avec un bonne pêche, mais peut-être un peu ...
