Oh they will.
New member of the Beyer team reporting in! I've been listening to my new DT 880's (2005) 250ohm (purchased from el_monkey) for almost a week now and I am still stunned.
My headphone journey has gone like this:
Crappy stock headphones with cheap portable CD player -> $15 ear-buds from Best Buy (they were crap) -> Some $20 Altec-Lansing gaming headset (I thought these were the **** at the time) -> Audio-Technica ATH-A700 (HOLY CRAP this is what I've been missing?!
) -> Beyerdynamic DT 880 (I have found perfection)
Been powering them off my Denon pre-amp, connected to my computer, but a Headamp AE-1 should be arriving today so I can try them out with my X5 finally. Yay!
