Product Description

Size:250 OHM Pro

The DT 880 PRO 250 by Beyerdynamic is a reference class, semi open studio headphone which combines all strengths of open, transparent headphones with those of more powerful, closed headphones. Specially designed housings and an improved system equalization turn this "remake" of the studio classic DT 880 into an ideal studio monitoring headphone, with analytical qualities. The balanced reduction of environmental noise guarantees a perfect spherical sound. The higher frequencies are crystal clear with a very smooth sound. The precise balanced mid frequencies are analytical and supportive and the bass is voluminous without being too obtrusive. Soft ear pads and adjustable, sliding, earpieces combined with a single sided connecting cable ensure listening comfort during extended periods of use. Since 1924 Beyerdynamic has remained a German family owned company committed to continuous research and innovative developments for the audio market. All over the world, Beyerdynamic is known for the use of the latest technologies and a high quality standard. All Beyerdynamic products are made in Germany.

I use these with a Woo Audio Fireflies and a Cambridge Audio DacMagic XS .
These Beyer DT-880 Pro present a very nice listening experience.
They offer supreme clarity, refined detail, and abundant dynamics.
Sound wise they are slightly (treble) extended past a neutral overall sound as they are engineered with a slightly tweeked/punched upper treble (above 5K) that adds a real clarity to their presentation.
I would describe their tonality as very clean and precise with average mids.
As you listen you notice a good general balance of the frequencies, very detailed and articulate.
Their sound presentation offers you the ability to look inside the music.
They are easy to drive and extremely comfortable to wear for extended periods of listening.
A very good overall value for the money.

Size: 250 OHM Pro Verified Purchase
Hey there, I'm coming in with a review because these are extremely noteworthy. MIGHT I NOTE THAT THE ONES I AM RATING ARE THE PRO 250 OHM'S!!!
I had purchased these along with Sennheiser HD598's, and the AKG K-701's.
Wow did all of them give an amazing experience.
1. Let's start with the best headphones to jam out and go deaf with. The AKG K-701's...
Out of the 3, these require the most juice to power. Once you get its minimum juice from an amp, your sound is amplified at least 10 fold from what you were getting out of a straight 3.5mm jack.
Mind you, these sound amazing right out of the box and sound even more amazing AFTER burn in, everything is forward, NOTHING is lacking or hiding. Highs, mids, and lows all there-- just pure bliss. Now mind you, everything is so balanced and well blended that the sound-stage is utter crap. It works too well for monitoring purposes. You won't be able to focus on a bass guitar strum or a vocal solo if you wanted to.
The incredibly entertaining sound will make you forget about how uncomfortable the headstrap is, until it finally hits you. My ears hurt, the INSIDE of my ears hurt. You won't realize it, but these headphones push out some really strong frequencies and you will ignore it because of the enjoyment. If you're an EXTREME audiophile who looks to go deaf in the next year or so, by all means! Otherwise, this is where I DO NOT condone the AKG K701's.

2. Sennheiser HD 598's.
Extremely warm sound, incredible sound stage, and doesn't take much burn in time at all. These are probably some of the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn. Mind you, the included cable is rather long so it MAY by the only thing that weighs your head down.

Size: 600 OHM Verified Purchase
Basic Build:
Obviously, the build and appearance of both these headphone will be nearly identical. And that is correct, with the only difference being the outside of the earcups. The build quality of these headphones are among the best I have ever experienced. They are made of very high quality materials and feel very hefty, despite their light weight. The cable is nice and thick and is well connected to the headphone and jack itself. Although coated in an almost stiff plastic, I have no complaints about the cable. The headband, is also incredibly durable, able to withstand horrible abuse. In fact, I conducted an experiment. I actually grabbed the two cups of the headphone, and bent them backwards so that the headphone was completely straight in a flat line form. After that, I bent the headband in a very tight loop. After all this, the headband looked and functioned exactly as it did before, with absolutely no obvious wear or damage. Although I cannot recommend doing this for stress relief, rest assured that your Beyer headband will never break. If it does, tell me how you did it. Overall build is just fantastic. Beefy parts, solid materials, resistant design, and great feel overall.

Appearance:
Flat out, these look really quite fantastic. They look especially good when seen in person. In fact, the DT880 is one of the best looking headphones I have yet come across. As discussed in the previous paragraph, there is only one difference in the appearance of the DT880 and the DT990. The DT880 has dotted outer earcups, and the DT990 has slatted outer earcups. In person, and in my opinion, the DT880 looks superior to the DT990. But of course, all of this relies on the users opinion and preference. Both do look great, but the DT880 simply looks better.

I recently purchased these headphones along with Audio Technica AD900x, and I already own Sennheiser HD 598.

I tried all three with: Dragonfly v1.2 (DAC/Amp), Creative X-Fi Titanium HD (sound card w/ DAC/Amp), and Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 (audio interface)

I'll rank them in terms of a few things I care about:

Sound
- Beyerdynamic DT-880 Pro (250 Ohm): I hate to say it, but they really did feel like they beat out my beloved Sennheiser HD 598 overall for sound quality.
- Sennheiser HD 598: These sound great and do some songs/genres better than the Beyerdynamics. I listen to a bit of everything, but a lot of electronic music sounded slightly better to me on the Sennheisers.
- Audio Technica AD900x: Honestly, they felt a little tin-canny at first. After listening to them for a while they seemed pretty good and some genres really sung (anything without a lot of bangin' going on).

Comfort
- Sennheiser HD 598: The earcups don't touch my ears. I love this aspect of the headphones. They hardly feel like they are on, even for extended periods.
- Beyerdynamic DT-880 Pro (250 Ohm): They clamp fairly hard and touch part of my ears. You forget about it after a while, but after several hours you notice it again. The plush earpads are really nice.
- Audio Technica AD900x: I found these quite uncomfortable. They touched my ears, weren't plush in the least, and really didn't feel like they were on my head terribly well.

Quality
- (Tie) Beyerdynamic DT-880 Pro & Sennheiser HD 598: Both feel substantial and high quality. The Sennheiser has an easily removable/swappable headphone cable that the Beyerdynamic doesn't, but the Beyerdynamic feels nice and solid.
- Audio Technica AD900s: A long way down we find these.
