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?
I was originally planning on purchasing the KRK 8400s, to replace the 518s, but was hesatent due to the multiple complaints about bass. Im glad I did. I LOVE the sound stage on this. You bass monkeys out there might want more. They have very good supportive and true bass, but there not the M50s, and they wont blow your brains out or shake your skull where your teeth viberate. They are powerful at times where the track has bass, but they also wont add bass where its not intended to be. Where there is bass it delivers. For an example: You will be able open up games like skyrim, and hear a good boom! in the title opening, and hear bass from fire spells cast in the game while your attacking the guards...Not that I ever do this!
As stated, in other reviews these defiantly DO have good mid support. The detail is just there. Which brings me to my concluding thought: What happened with these? They sound better than the sennheiser 518s, and are definitely better than sony's MDR7506. To me they are close to or on par with the HD600s. How did they get missed? There very comfortable, go all the way around my ear, provide excellent isolation, have sufficient bass, and don't make your ears bleed in their highs, and are a brand that's been in the business for some time. So whats going on here?
If you can find them anywhere from 130-160, there worth ever cent. I have let multiple people listen to these and not one person has disagreed with me when I stated that they sound better than bose headphones at your local best buy...Bose are really not that great and many of you audiophiles out there might be frowning on me for even using this comparison. Yes, shame on me. Ill go stand in the corner and listen to some music.
Anyhow, if you do purchase these MAKE SURE YOU PICK UP THE 80 OHM version. The 250 OHM version is meant for studio use and is a lot harder to drive. Both could benefit from a good headphone amp, but the 80s have a better job of putting up the good fight with just a motherboard card, or an ipo....android!
If you can't tell already I really enjoy the headphones made by this manufacture, and I am familiar with a wide range of headphones, having also sampled AKG, Stax Earspeakers, Joseph Grado, and Seinheisser. To my ears only the Stax Earspeakers have been able to really outshine Beyerdynamic's products. I do believe the DT 990 has been the most superior beyedynamic headphone I have sampled, but it's open back design makes it difficult to listen to music privately or to monitor a recording a live session. The 990 was also a 250 ohm headphone, which really needed an external amplifier to shine.
The DT 250 80 ohm has really exceptional sound quality, suitable for monitoring and recording a live performance, or any other venue where extraneous sound is a problem. It will let you know every detail of what is coming through the feed.
While it is not quite as transcendently clear as the DT 990, it comes very close for a closed back design, and sounds quite superior to the DT 880 in my opinion. Since it comes in this 80 own option, it is relatively easily driven without an external headphone amplifier, and sounds quite good through my laptop or my iPhone.
Durability is also very good. The main problem I've had with their ability over the nine years I've use these, has been the fabric coating on the bail has become bare. The actual sound quality is as good as ever, even after thousands of hours of use. I have never kept them in a case, other than often putting them in my bag with other things, and I have not developed any loose connections or other wire failures.
Ultimately, I would give these headphones 4 1/2 stars, only negating the half star because they are not quite as perfect as the crème de la crème like the DT 990s, The top-of-the-line Seinheissers, or the Stax products. I doubt you would be disappointed with these if you bought them.
i got 2 dt250 one 250ohm and one 80ohm. never had a problem with them. 250ohm for desktop use and 80ohm with a diy short cable for portable use and you are in heaven just don't want to try any other closed headphones.

First off, I remember bass being a thing. These sound absolutely horrible for something in this price range.Read more
