Excellent quality of manufacturing, outstanding sounding.
Evgeny
The result of these bass and treble lumps is that the DT 250-80s has some very appealing rhythmic qualities.
Smoothie
They sound better than the sennheiser 518s, and are definitely better than sony's MDR7506.

I have actually just replaced the DT 250-80s after 7 years of service ,so I havd had a long time to become familiar with them.

I bought them because I was looking for a sealed can for better work isolation. Were that not an requirement, I'd go open-backed, so I was looking for sealed headphones that had as much as possible of the open and detailed quality that, say, the Grado 80s have. The Beyers don't quite do that, but they are reasonably detailed.

The bass is punchy and articulate, with a sense of pace pressure that differentiates the sound from open cans. That said, this is probably due in part to an exaggerated mid-bass. I don't hugely mind this, as music benefits in terms of rhythm and pace, but I wouldn't call the bass range uncolored.

The treble is good overall. However, like a mirror image of the bass, it's a little exaggerated in the lower treble. This is good news bad news, as it provides sibilance and articulation, but at the expense of neutrality, transparency and soundstage detail.

The result of these bass and treble lumps is that the DT 250-80s has some very appealing rhythmic qualities. Your toes will tap. They just aren't the last word in detail, soundstage or neutrality.

Issues:
Fatigue both aural and physical. The treble peak above gets pretty tiring after a few hours. About the same time for me, my outer ears started to ache from the pad pressure. These are not circumaural, they will press on some part of your ear, depending on how you fiddle with them. For an hour, maybe two, no problem. Beyond that, a break was required.

Construction. The earpiece is attached to headband with a swivel mechanism.

These earphones are interesting.

Pro: They are sealed, circumaural cans, and the 80-ohm version (the DT 250-80) is easily driven by portable electronics.

Con: The cans themselves are not all that portable, as they're full-sized and don't fold.

Pro: The cord is detachable.

Con: The plug connecting it to the phones is HUGE (about 2 inches long), and the company (or anyone else, for that matter) does not make any cables for this headset except for the stock cable, making a detachable cable pretty pointless.

You get the idea. Sonically, these things are very good for sealed cans, and I carry them regularly with my MP3 player for travel. Although the external noise blocking is not as good as that provided by earplug-type headphones (such as Etymotic 4 series, another of my favorites) it is quite good, and the phones are useable on airplanes. If you want a full-sized set of headphones that can run off a portable, I would recommend these.

These headphones are outstanding. Simply outstanding. They bring out detail like nothing I have heard before on a headset. Originally I had purchased the sennheiser 518s. Upon receiving those, I had a chance to sit down and for a good hour listen to both the 518s, and 600s interchanging for various parts of the soundtrack throughout in direct comparison. with the 600s sounding slightly more open with a stronger emphasis on the treble and the 518s with a notable increase in mid bass levels. I loved the 518s. Both the 518 and the 600s had similar sound, and are great pairs of cans.

However I was not a fan of the leakage. I bought the 518s specifically because of the promise of increased sound stage. They have that, but they also leak so much that one looses privacy. I had music on, walked out of my room and closed the door, and you could faintly still hear it outside the room. They are made to do that and that is part of how Open headphones receive this leverage on the soundstage of closed.

But at the end of the day, I would rather take a slight sacrifice in that regard, and be able to listen to music without the world hearing. Some people are fine with that, and that's great for them. However, I enjoy the majority of music listening I enjoy being a private experience that won't disturb my neighbors. So I bought these, hopeful that the sound would be at least comparable to the 518s.

Not only did I not really notice a significant decrease in soundstage, but the frequency response of these was very similar to the HD600s(less emphasis on the mid bass and much more open in the mids and trebles). And yes without silibence. How about bass?

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mr. H. C. Orr on July 17, 2011
I recently purchased these headphones as a replacement to my beloved Sony MDR-V500DJs, which had eventually given up the ghost. I use them mainly with my PC for listening to music, using the internet, and playing games. Therefore, I didn't envisage buying these as professional-grade monitoring equipment.

First of all, I've read in a couple of reviews about the "odd" seven-pin detahable cable, which is secured to the headphone unit by a small screw. It's true that the separate nature of the cable does seem odd at first, but considering that cables can get damaged and that this one can therefore be easily replaced for about £25 without buying an entire new set of cans, it's actually reassuring. Another reassuring thing is the large, proud writing on the box and the headphones themselves declaring "MADE IN GERMANY"; where something is made is always very important to me, because it's that extra guarantee that it will last and has been made with high-quality materials.

Closed-back headphones are often bought by non-professionals because they don't want sound leaking from the unit. These seem to contain sound very well within their velour-cushioned earpads (which, like the cable, also have official spares available online). The adjustable headband is not smothered with protective material, but it's comfortable enough.

Most important, of course, is the sound quality that any audio equipment produces. I always find it acutely difficult to buy any audio equipment without listening to it first, because the tastes of individuals reviewing things like this vary so widely. Some people love accentuated bass, some hate it. Some people say that the sound is coloured by certain cans and hate it, some love them for just that.
