Beyerdynamic DT880 *closed-back* - Page 4

post #46 of 331
I'd say, similar to the W5000, they really shine with drum related music. The 600 ohm systems are quick and hit hard, and the closed back principle provides a nice deep bass foundation. But they also do other & more conventional genres dramatically better than a stock exemplar IMO.

Note that 250 ohm systems are totally different creatures, they are dead slow in comparison, a 250 ohm version is rather a rumbling Ambient machine IMO.

What do you mean with "black Beyer"????

This all black Beyer is mine and I coloured it by myself.

oic i was wondering why the purple felt was there, just for tweaking the sound for your own purposes.
post #49 of 331
That felt is for sound adjusting purposes (taming of upper mids and highs). We've found stuff with better prosperties meanwhile though, take a look at update 2 of post #1.
@ Noxter: It's time to throw all the old stuff out of the thread.

what difference does the dt770 pad make compare to the original pads?
post #53 of 331
Sonically none. But the DT880 pads, which are concipated for an open HP, don't work here, so the DT770 pads are a choice owing to circumstances. Other pads for closed HPs also work acceptably (e.g. DT660 pads), but the DT770 pads produce the most natural tonality.

In regards to your comparision to hd650, would you say they have more or less bass. Darker than 650 or brighter? Thanks!

The CB has definitely more sub-bass. The upper bass is compareable with HD650. But don't nail me down on it.
As I stated in the first posting, treble is on nearly the same niveau, but without the veil in sound. But the HD650 definetely have more ground-tone and less upper-mids, so the CB appears brighter I think.

Maybe the server was down...

I wanna try this, but is afraid i'm gonna screw up my cans...
post #59 of 331
Ahh. Nicely updated. Probably won't try this since the 880 is not designed to be closed in the first place. But it seems reversible.

It is reversible.
That a DT880 is not supposed to be closed is just the position of Beyerdynamic.
To screw up your cans with this mod you need very special skills...
