A neutral, airy, comfortable all-rounder

Posted

Pros: Neutral, balanced, detailed, airy, comfortable, well-built

Cons: Some might find the treble too peaky or the bass not present enough

Introduction   I've had my DT880 for over two years now, and I figured it's finally time to give it a proper write-up. Of course the DT880 is nothing new. It was introduced into Beyer's Premium lineup in 2003 and got an aesthetic makeover, along with the entire Premium lineup, in 2005. This is the version I have (the 250 ohm variant). It competed with the HD6x0, and later the K70x, as one of the three top dynamic headphones in the world. The DT880 was the bright, airy one out of the bunch. Lots of headphones have come and gone since then, and Beyer itself has released a new (much more expensive) flagship, the T1. What kind of value does the DT880 offer today? Let's find out. ...

Perfect for acoustic folk songs and other genres probably

Pros: Rich, warm, detailed and balanced audio, super comfortable to the ears,

Cons: Needs amp.

Superb sounding to the likes of Howie Day and Matt Nathanson. They sound perfect. Thanks to this pair of sweet babies and Spotify of course. Been a premium member for two years now. Life without a good pair of headphones and Spotify will be so unbearable now.    For classical music for example, Sarah Walker – Symphony No. 9 in D minor 'Choral' Op. 125: I. Allegro ma non troppo, un poco maestoso,  what may sound harsh to the ears with a pair of Soul Ludacris 150 (which I have a pair), is transformed into sweet symphonic magic with the Bere 880. Treble is detailed, smooth as silk and classy.

Pros: One of the best treble performing headphones, extremely comfortable, very well build

Cons: Bass is not enough for a bass head

I'm reviewing the 2005 edition 250ohm version.   As I said about how good it is in the pros and the weaknesses in the con is all I can say about the headphone.   Soundstage is great which make these fantastic for gaming. The rest sound of the sound (mids/bass) are neutral and are done well.   Great headphone if you really care about treble.
