Delicious, Sparkly Goodness

Posted

Pros: Airy unfatiguing treble, epic sound stage, brilliant mids, extensive and textured bass. VERY comfortable. Worth way more than what you pay.

Cons: Non-detachable cable? Can't think of much.

I'm just gonna start off by saying I love this headphone. It has dominated my head time since I got it. My HD650 gets no love anymore. They are just incredible. They're easily worth $400 in my opinion.   My first serious headphone buy (HD280 5 years ago not included), I got the 250ohm version and used it with an E17 for a month; I ended up returning them to Amazon due to getting the HD600 and HE-400, both of which I ended up selling and returning as well. I couldn't justify 2 pairs, let alone 3. I got the HD650 and it changed everything. I ended up selling/returning everything. Once I got the Lyr and Bifrost, it changed everything. So that leads us to early December 2012... ...

Airy Detail Monster

Posted

Pros: Crisp detail, Superb Soundstage, Perfect comfort, Great Build

Cons: Realistically nothing to mention

I just finished writing this for my blog, but here is the full review...     It's been a while since I reviewed some headphones - to long in fact. If you followed the 'USB DAC/amp' project - I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I did writing it, but for now that's on pause while I return to headphones. Bring on the DT880 Premium - 600ohm, Beyerdynamic's UK distributor (POLARaudio) are providing me with some of their new catalogue to play with soon, but for now here is a little gem that I recently purchased.  Rewind fourteen years and I was spending my own money on headphones for the first time. It was my first year at university, I had...

Open Back Mi-Fi Perfection

Pros: Airy sound, delicate mids, speed, sense of openness, sound stage and layering. Timbre

Cons: no isolation, bright [I like bright cans but some don’t] lacks intimacy, bass for some may not be heavy enough

  Beyerdynamic DT 880 Premium 600ohm (With ZXAC Fully Balanced Recable) [$235 Used] Personal Back-Story   I recently re-purchased my Beyerydanmic Dt 880’s back!

A perfect, magical headphone for me!

Posted

Pros: Detailed, clean treble, awesome mids, wide soundstage, made in Germany!!

Cons: No detachable cable, looks ugly, bass could have more impact.

Setup: 320Kbps > ODAC > Maverick Audio Tubemagic A1 > DT880   Headphones i own or have previously owned: AKG K701 (sold), ATH-M50, Shure SE215.   Let me start off by saying: Female vocals are STUNING!   Build Quality: These are made in Germany, by hand, by real German people. Build quality is top notch. The whole headphone is made of metals except maybe the part near the drivers. These will take a beating.   Comfort: I wasn't lying when i said these are perfect. The earpads are so soft, it feels as if pillows are on my cheeks. These are very, very comfy and i can wear them for hours. They do kind of get warm so i have to take them off...

My hearing just got better or what?

Posted

Pros: Really good SQ. Awesome soundstage. The highs are very good and not harsh at all for me. Build quality is great. Great for all genres.

Cons: Don't hear low bitrate mp3's with this headphones. Some may find their bass lacking, But I think it's spot-on and goes really low.

Besides what I could write in the Pros and Cons, This headphones are the most comfortable I've used, I can sit with them a whole day and my ears doesn't even sweat, you might even forget you have them on. Another thing is that personally I find thier design to be very beautiful. I'm really enjoying this cans and I think they are worth what you pay (Also have thier own icon which is another pro).

Greetings, this is a very brief review of the DT880 Premium 600 Ohms.    First of all, let me start by saying that these cans are the most comfortable pair I have ever experienced so far. The clamping is very soft and has light pressure on the head. Beyerdynamic cans have legendary comfort.   SQ wise, the DT880 is a great all rounder. Every part of the frequency response is perfect and not recessed in any way. It is very full sounding and I haven't have a thought that something might be missing. I find them neutral sounding with a good bass response and they offer astounding clarity. Oh and have I mentioned that they are smooth? Of all the tracks I...
