Just got my 880's! I'll try to let everyone know what I think soon as I can! Hope to be one of the happy family.

Yep, I'm a happy owner of DT770/80ohm Pros. I bought them mainly for recording and e-drumming purposes, but they've proved themselves (not too surprisingly) to be quite nice at plain listening too... Although, as much as I'd love to take them out with my iPod, I just wouldn't dare for aesthetic reasons

Senn HD 25-1s should arrive next week.

Hello,

Have a question for all beyerdynamics experts. Looking for a good pair of headphones in price range up to 300€ (360$). I almost came to decision of buying Proline 750 or 2500, but now I noticed that some 32ohm's versions of 880/990 came out. I never had headphones for more that 50€, lately I only use my speakers Logitech Z-2200, but as I do a lot of composing and I don't want to buy monitors I decided to go with a good pair of headphones.
My question is, (and remember, I have no experience in using headphones) what would be the best choice for composing and maybe producing music from beyerdynamics?
I was looking at DT990 32ohm, but am not shure if maybe for 100€ I could get AKG 271 and I would probably be happy, happy, happy. From 271 I got to Proline 750, but now I'm not shure any more. Could someone explain how DT990 32ohm sounds (I will be driving them from Focusrite Saffire - no external amp) compared to AKG 271 or maybe 701 and Proline 750?
As I'm a nooby I would really like to know what is the mayor difference of an open/closed headphones expect that open ones can be heard arround you. Is the sound quality of the open ones really that better over closed ones?


Thank you all for helping me out ...

I'd suggest the DT-880s for you as being most detailed and balanced (not tipped in any freq. range) with a wide soundstage all dependant upon upon the components downstream, as always.

Open/closed, yes you have it right. Also, you can hear the phone ring etc... Most would perfer open as this is an easier implimentation to get the sonic field correct without resonances being traped inside the cup. Downside is mostly for other folks in the room , or even the next room hearing your music some, dependant upon your volume setting...

Do utilize the search function a bit for lots of opinions , can be a daunting read , I understand but fun too!

Oh , and start a thread in the forum for more help, and to say, HI ;-}

Good luck, and welcome~

Edit: These deserve and most would say need an amplifier... Maybe, they would be satisfying @ 32 Ohm from a "Focusrite Saffire" source. I just do not recognise it, sorry......

Hi!

I've been reading this forum for a couple of weeks, a few hours a day, using search and I totally agree. Its fun and educational. But after all this time spent on the forum, I'm just so confused ... so much good reviews of different headphones. Beyerdynamics, Sennheiser, Akg, Ultrasone ... Ofcourse before head-fi I knew nothing about hi-class headphones, now I know something, but it's almost impossible to choose... damn :-) ... I wish It would be simple as that 100€ the best is ... 200€ the best is ... and so on ... but at the same price range there are just so many headphones. Some are good for this, some for that, same are good with amp, sounds bad without an amp ...

Well, just had to write all this out .. hehe (sorry for that)

I'll go on with the holly quest of finding the "ultimate" headphones ...

I'm with you Tomson. A while back I didn't know much of anything about headphones, but a few lenghty stints at Head-fi helped a lot. I've not really been looking for "hi-fi" -phones, but the same rules apply to studio-monitoring and mixing... So I've got a lot of good advice along the way.

Fully understandable, we were all at that point , ya know ;-}

Again, how 'bout posting a new intro thread, state: Your music preferance, source, other sound preferances you've heard before and you'll get alot more hits and discuss with a wider group...

Good luck ;-}

Sorry, forgot to mention, I posted a question about best music production headphones and I came to this conclusion:

The only headphones to drive without an amp would be AKG271, Proline 750/2500, Beyerdynamics 880/990 32ohm.

So for now, I'm stuck here. From those I would choose Proline750, so I guess I'm just looking for the last confirmation of that beeing the right choice.

Actually the DT770/80ohm Pros work very well without an amp too... And Sennheiser's HD 25-1s should do the trick somewhat also, as they are a very popular choice in studios around the world.

Only other point I might suggest , would be to buy used off our F/S subforum and for very little loss (paypal & shipping) you can try out several cans; If the first in line doesn't do it for you. Most of these guys keep their gear in pristine shape and change phones like socks ;-}

Good luck~

Well, not a bad idea ... very practical indeed. But I just love too much the "smell" of new things I buy, and the pleasure to take things out the package for the first time... :-) I'm just gonna buy a new ones, and be setisfied with them.

There's lots to love. I bought a K701 for its added definition, but I still miss its unmistakable bass and enchanting soundstage. Whenever I see one for sale, I get all itchy and nervous... Alas, there's only room for one headphone in this house.

For producing music I'd say DT880 for sure. They are the most neutral. And they are sure awesome.
