The Studio Classic
Proven quality over many years - not just the popular choice among professionals.
For years now, professional users all over the world have placed their trust in our classic range: DT 770/880/990 PRO. The studio reference headphones boast extremely detailed resolution and a very transparent sound.
The DT 880 PRO is the semi-open studio headphone that impressively boasts natural and neutral sound.
The reference for the studio
The wide stereo image, neutral sound and the extremely high resolution make the DT 880 PRO a reliable reference headset for studio use. The DT 880 PRO allows mixing errors to be identified immediately, making this headset the ideal companion for mixing and mastering. It is also a reliable tool for every sound enthusiast and a loyal companion for producers in the studio.
Outstanding spaciousness and Neutral sound with no tonal colouration
The headset offers unique spaciousness thanks to the semi-open design, ensuring an excellent and wide stereo image. The sound is slightly more three-dimensional than the sound of the DT 770 PRO. The DT 880 PRO impresses with it's finely graduated tonal depth even at low volumes. It reproduces soundtracks without changing their tonal color. This allows optimum vocal positioning in mixing and ensures every slightest nuance is distinguished.
High wearing comfort - single sided cable
The robust spring steel headband ensures a comfortable and secure fit for the wearer. Soft, adjustable ear cups provide for added comfort when wearing for long periods. The single sided cable allows the DT 880 PRO to be put on and taken off frequently without cables getting in the way.
Compared to the DT 880 Premium Edition
The DT 880 Premium edition headset for use at home and the DT 880 PRO studio headset; both are identical when it comes to sound. Identically designed acoustic transducers are used. However, the Premium edition models have a somewhat softer headband for enjoying music at home while the PRO headset has a slightly tighter fit on the head so that it doesn't move even in case of faster movements in everyday studio use. Moreover, the PRO version is supplied with a coiled cable and the Premium edition version with a straight cable.

After gathering a ton of feedback, I decided that the DT-880's were the right pair for me in this price range. I am very happy with my decision. I run these through my Apogee Duet Firewire interface and must say the sound is really excellent. While I still need to check my final mixes on monitors, I can do 90% of my composing/mixing with these and then just tweak final mixes with my monitors and a couple of other headphones. The Duet powers the headphones pretty well, but not to the same level of many other headphones, so that is something to keep in mind.
If you want a neutral, clear, and detailed sound, I would definitely recommend these headphones. They might not be the most exciting, colored, or "fun" sounding pair, but they work very well for professional applications or for someone looking for a more elegant sound.
The DT-880 features comfortable, "semi-open" pads that allow you to hear things in the room while your are monitoring-- Great for recording vocals, or performing live with a personal band mix in-ear. This configuration is not so great if you mix or monitor in a loud room and need complete sound isolation.
The Beyerdynamic is very discerning to my ears. It reveals beautifully recorded material with a rich, spacious soundscape. The DT-880 is comfortable both projecting the lush character of a dense mix and revealing the delicate nuances of a solo voice.
These phones are great 24-bit or vinyl listeners, but they will ravage your ears with every harsh tone introduced through poor recording or mp3 compression.
I do not consider these headphones "inexpensive" or "budget-priced," however I believe the DT-880 delivers superior performance at a price that I find reasonable.
Due to its quality and comfort, I recommend the DT-880 for use as studio monitors (in controlled recording situations) and for enjoying high-end recorded material.
-Putting these on for the first time, it feels like small little heavenly clouds have descended over my ears to sing to me. I have never put on anything more comfortable than these. I wish my clothes were made out of my headphones.
-The chord is coiled. Which is perfect because I have the problem of getting my chords all twisted up, so this prevents this very well.
-The sound quality is amazing. I have experienced sounds I never even knew existed. Everything sounds better. Everything. Now many people will complain about random things like highs and lows and treble and bass and whatever they say. I say who cares. They sound amazing. If you don't want to spend 500+ for headphones/amps/chords and what not, then these are for you. THESE ARE AMAZING. I could not be more pleased with these.
-None. Well, having not bought these before now. If you like music, for the sake of your eardrums purchase these.
If your like me, and spending all your time wondering which headphones you should buy, BUY THESE. I regret nothing!
