It's just way too diffuse for me

 

ridiculously detailed, and very airy, but its bass really bothered me, it just sounded... off

Yeah because it sounds outclassed when compared to 1a & b. 2,3 & 4 are for portable use. The Pro-60 is only there for the sake of having a decent sounding vintage headphone and I think it sounds better than the Koss HV/1 which is now stored away.

Not a fan of the bright & treble heavy sound of the DT880, especially in the lower treble region (5~8khz). DT1350 on the other hand is more balanced, where treble sounds more natural and sibilance-free - hence the higher ranking.

mm, yeah the DT880 does have a bad 10kHz spike, especially the lower impedance models, I can see where people would find it problematic

 

the DT1350 has it too but to a much lesser degree

Same Impression here. I don't know why Beyer isn't revising the dt880. It's such a great headphone but the Beyerpeak is really annoying. Beyer, if you're reading this, please consider making an anniversary edition with no 8kHz spike. It would be a bargain. Even if it would cost 100 bucks more.

Personally I'd prefer they work on their Quality Control, I had 3 DT1350s and all of them sounded wildly different, one was acceptable but the other two were damn terrible.

 

In a best case scenario, the peak on the DT880 should be able to be eliminated with a simple enclosure/dampening mod, as 10kHz resonances are usually enclosure-borne, not driver-borne. I'll probably experiment with the headphones if I ever buy a pair.

Pair it with a tube amp. Problem = Gone
