32 Ohm Version - Designed for Mobile High-Performance Listening

This is the 32 ohm version of the DT 880 Premium line, designed explicitly to provide quality audio from low-powered sources such as portable music players and laptops. Its semi-open design and highly-efficient drivers allow for increased volume with reduced noise leakage while listening to low-output audio players. A lower-impedance headphone such as the 32-ohm DT 880 is ideal for use when you're on the move but don't want to sacrifice having an immersive audio experience.

The beyerdynamic DT 880 Headphones
The semi-open, over-the-ear design offers sound isolation like a closed headphone

A gold plated 3.5 mm stereo jack with 1/4" inch adapter is included and is therefore suitable for use with almost all headphone amplifiers.

Semi-Open Back Design with Adjustable Headband and Velour Earpads

The DT 880's semi-open, over-the-ear design offers slightly increased sound isolation and reduced noise leakage like a closed headphone, while retaining the high fidelity normally associated with open-back headphones. The adjustable headband lets you easily create the perfect fit for extended periods of listening comfort. Ideal for portable devices, this version of the DT 880 delivers the quality of a professional-level headphone design in a lower impedance headphone that's perfect for your media player, music-playing smartphone, portable gaming device, laptop, or any other mobile source when you need high-resolution audio performance. The velour earpads make long periods of extended listening easy on the ears.

Dynamic Transducer for Increased Fidelity and Performance

Without exception, beyerdynamic manufactures the dynamic transducer systems that go into their headphones in-house. From the magnet and diaphragm to the careful wiring and circuitry, beyerdynamic controls quality at all levels of manufacturing, ensuring superior engineering in their headphones down to the smallest detail.

An extremely strong neodymium magnet system offers the DT 880 highly detailed sound reproduction quality, is mechanically very robust, and needs only a small amount of operating voltage which increases efficiency. This increased efficiency also leaves the DT 880 with greater power reserves for dynamic, undistorted sound that especially compensates well for low-spec mobile devices such as portable media players that often can't perform at the same level as dedicated home equipment. The optimized 32 Ohm voice coil provides transparency and increased volume with portable devices.

The sound is truly amazing.
Scott St Onge
Both should be kept for home use, listening to music or playing video games (both are excellent at it).
Henri Savin
The DT 990's offer the a very wide sound stage, the bass is actually quite nice.

In my quest for a reasonably expensive headphone to beat my actual favorite, the AKG Q701, I often did read about the Beyerdynamic headphones and I decided to try the DT880. Considering that I am very often using my Iphone 4 with or without a headphone amp, I decided to go for the 32 Ohms model. I made sure to give it a fair burn-in time so for a week, I did let it run almost constantly with some variation of music and pink and white noises. Today, I can estimate the burn-in to have passed the bar of 100 hours.

In order to compare effectively the two models, I will use my Iphone alone in the first place and then add a FiiO E-11 and reuse the same tracks. I expect the AKG to under perform with no amp as this phone is very power hungry. The tracks I will use are those that I always use when trying to compare headphones, because I love them first but also because I know how they should sound and more importantly because they provide a good sample of music genres and tonalities. The tracks will be compressed at 320Kbps and are as follow:
- Ultrasone Sound test Siley Put short (Jazz, Binaural recording perfect for localization of sounds).
- Ultrasone sound test Wellen track 7 (sound of water waves perfect for the head stage definition).
- Frank Sinatra: How insensitive (Jazz, good also for localization of sounds).
- Robin Thicke: Lost Without you and Angel (Perfect for the voice testing and for bass impact).
- Pink Floyd: Astronomy Domine from A piper at the gates of dawn (Rock and excellent also for the localization of sounds).
- DJ Magic Mike: Feel the Bass (Infra-Bass, enough said...) will be played from my computer because it is missing on the Iphone.

I used the Senn HD 280 Pro as my main music listening headphones before this & i thought they were good. But when I heard this I understood the meaning of the term "instrument separation". Everything is so detailed & clear, always have a smile on my face when i am listening to music with these. Bought the 32 ohm version so that I don't have to buy a headphone amp to listen with my MP3 player. They will reveal all the shortcomings of your source material so If you are planning on buying this only use lossless, Wav or MP3 320 KPBS.

Good job Beyer. If these sound so good then wonder how the DT990 (which are a grade above) will sound ?

These are just amazing. I researched headphones for 6 months before purchasing the Dt880's and I couldn't be happier. I made sure to buy the 32Ohm version so they could be driven by numerous audio devices, but these headphones truly shine when paired with an amp. They are built like a tank, but feel like heaven on your ears. I have a huge head and they are a tight fit, so I know they will fit anyone else with ease. They sound great out of the box, but after about 100 hours of burn in they really start to open up. If you are going to always have them paired with a high end amp get the 250 or 600 Ohm otherwise the 32ohm are fantastic. I use them for mostly video games and playing Bad Company 2 and God of War 3 with these are jaw dropping. I am using an Astro gaming mixamp and it powers the headphones just fine.

I own all 3 32ohm DT series. i really cant pick a favorite. all i can say that Beyerdynamic has made a really good driver for these. the range and sound stage for all have there slight distinctions but all vary a very wide mid-range. Which allows the listener to enjoy any type of sound comfortably. Although all lack hard bass, they all handle amplification nicely and that's where these pick up the bass well. The 880's being slightly open with good air diffusion is what i like about these.

run down for the DT line

The DT 770's offer bass(closed back), as expected, but its somewhat tricky to get it to come in smooth. the soundstage is pretty (cold) and these take the longest break in. i suggest make the pads super soft by squishing them flatter. this allows the driver to be closer to the ear where the lows can make a deeper impact. this also lowers the sound stage of the treble while slightly making it harsher, adding to the (coldness). I suggest EQ'ing the treb lower and raising the low mids(250-800hz) slightly.

The DT 880's! The midrange is the best with this version as it should! I listen to these with the bass turned up SLIGHTLY and the mids flat, with the low Treb boosted(4khz-15khz). Same trick with the pads unless you prefer to get the full range and dynamic soundstage these create very well. I recommend these for movies, video games, and light music listening.

The DT 990's offer the a very wide sound stage, the bass is actually quite nice. Though they also sound cold like the DT 770's surprisingly, they don't offer bass like those. These do sound the best amplified to me, as i set it flat. When i EQ the sound i constantly have to change some levels because you hear the differences between songs.

Amazing sound. I researched and researched and believed this brand would be the best. I had the fortune of speaking directly with a Beyer Dynamic rep who recommended the 32 OHM for my use- mostly listening from iPod/iPad. He also encouraged me that I would not be disappointed. I forked out the big bucks because I really love music and figured- hey, if they last a lifetime or a long time...I would be glad I had them. The sound is truly amazing. The clarity of all the instruments is there. The highs are terrific- the tingles of the cymbals- the strong and unmuddied bass- the clarity of the vocals. It is a real pleasure to have this high quality of listening. I plan to add a little headphone amplifier to boost the overall volume as sometimes I like it pretty loud.
