Pros: soundstage, focusing, clarity
Cons: less impact of bass
It takes no effort at all to "see" the virtual soundstage with DT880/600ohm. The soundstage is deep and wide with pin-point-like focusing. In the mean time, the integrity of the all frequency range is well maintained which results highly realistic and vivid embodiments of sonic sources. It gives me a feast of sonic "motion picture" and brings me the unbeatable enjoyment (up to now).
One of my DT880/600 is recabled to balanced cabling. Powered by Audio-GD's Phoenix and Ref-1, the transparency, details, and vast soundstage wowed me for a long time. I always thought that may be due to the balanced system. Recently, I found that the SE DT880/600 with Decware CSP-2 may be another combo that is capable of highly refined and revealing SQ. This is the system that makes me aware the true potential even with SE DT880.
Consider the price which is about 1/3 of current top model, I just cannot thank Beyer enough for such gem.
