with foamies, they have a respectable soundstage just not what i was used to with other higher end dynamics. it reminds me of the um2 type of stage, quite intimate but well represented.

I connected Turbines to Beta22.....
Hmmm, wow. The details on bass got MUCH better. These phones, like others, benefit a lot from strong amplification.
Wow, just wow. I keep saying wow.... Beta22 really indeed changed Turbines.
Funny to realize Turbines are not intended to be used with insane amplification like beta22.
880 and any headphone is unfair to compare to an iem. iems may have excellent instrument separation but they are far far below in terms of stage width, height and driveability.
i too had the 880 (2003 i think) and they remain my favourite phones of all time. the stage is massive on those while producing details that are just precise. i have never heard an iem to top the dt880 in both categories. even for details, i heard details in them that i am quite sure my old er4s would not have done.
the monster will produce a beautiful driver sound like the dt880 but not be able to supply the stage: no way.
they are great for iems, but... haha, not compared to full size phones.
Ok, Ive gone through the whole thread and cant find any live photos of these things in the wild. I just cant go off of these marketing photos. I know looks are not very important but I would still like to see them if someone can post a pic of them or a link to pics. A in ear pic or just on a table or whatever would go a long way. Possibly the first post could be edited to add a pic like alot of these other appreciation threads.
