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: 600 OHM
I'll start off by saying that I'm no highly-experienced audiophile; the most expensive piece of sound equipment I've ever owned before the 880's cost only $75 (ECCI PR401 IEM's). I simply appreciate quality audio.

My IEM's were dying, so I had to buy something new. My budget was more expandable this time around since my birthday was upon me, so I did my research and came across the Beyerdynamic headphones. I borrowed a pair of DT 990's from a friend (lucky he had them) to try them out, and while I didn't hate them I thought the bass and treble were much too emphasized. Seeing that the DT 880's had a more neutral sound, I figured they would be much better-suited to my tastes (I ended up ordering the 32 OHM edition, considering I didn't want to have to fork over the extra cash for an amplifier).

Upon their arrival, I very eagerly plugged them into my iPhone and began cycling through my various genres of music. I was simply blown away by the sound I was hearing. No matter the genre, the 880's managed to pull it off flawlessly and with a clarity and accuracy I'd never previously known. The low frequencies are very controlled and just right in proportion, the mid frequencies are clear, and the high frequencies, though there is a very slight boost in the upper regions, are crisp and extremely detailed. The soundstage is also exceptionally wide and spacious. I'd describe the sound as being very natural and fit for analytic needs.

As of now, the only slight annoyance I have with the headphones is the sound bleeding, but this is to be expected from headphones with an open design (though they are listed as semi-open, I've noticed virtually no difference between the 990's and the 880's as far as the sound bleeding goes).

Size: 250 OHM Pro Verified Purchase
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:

- 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).

- 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.

- (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.

Size: 600 OHM Verified Purchase
For the longest time I had cheapo Sony's or whatever they sold at the store and figured that was as good as it gets. After I broke my "good" headphones, I went on the hunt for a new set, did a lot of reading, and found an entire sub-culture devoted to headphones. After lots and lots of research I landed on the DT 880 600ohm and have been both astonished and saddened at how much of the sound stage I've been missing!

There are purchases in our life-time that may have a one time gratification or are faddish and where great for a while -- things we spend hundreds on and put into a box which never gets opened; the ability to listen to music of this clarity, however, are truly soul changing. How do you put a price on your ability to connect with what you love?

For these to be run properly, I bought an external Sound Blaster HD DAC, a JDS labs cMoy modified with a 4000uF capacitor and an LME49860NA Op-Amp which is run by 24V 1Amp -- my life has never been the same...

I'm no expert, but my ears tell me I'm hearing everything, and if I listen very closely, I often hear more! Its there, its ALL there!

The headphones are extremely comfortable. Even with prolonged wear, they will not give you a headache like many headphones do. These cans don't grab your head tightly, they don't grind in the top of your head, they are VERY lite, the large ear-pads are roomy enough to fit anyone's ears and are very soft. In all seriousness, it doesn't even feel like you're wearing them.

There are three things I dislike about these however...
1. They are VERY open. You can hear sound outside the headphones very clearly.
2. 600ohms isn't an easy thing to drive. I may only be using a cMoy, but its pumping out a full amp of power and sometimes its still too quiet.
