Good idea.

Gotta go. I need to amend all my threads to reflect my genius and all knowing knowledge! smily_headphones1.gif

Want to clear up a misconception here on headfi.  I just spoke with Pete Carini, Beyerdynamics USA, about warranty repair on headphones purchased here on headfi.  My pair was purchased used from another headfier....even though the repair is withing the two year warranty, the warranty is void for the second owner and beyond, even with the original receipt.  Warranty is only valid to the original owner/buyer, so buyer beware.  This applies to purchases from Amazon Warehouse as well, if these were sold to original buyer, then returned to Amazon, and Amazon sells them at a reduced cost as, like new, the warranty is invalid.  Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic, AKG, etc, the same policy applies.

How do they know if you're the second owner?
post #5315 of 8065

You need proof that you are the first owner, ie an invoice with your name on it, required for warranty repair!

Oh, well, this is all moot for me since I've gone over three years without a problem. I made sure to keep the e-mail with my invoice just in case, since I actually lost the paper one that came with the order. It must have gone out with the shipping box.

 

Actually, just typing that made me feel the weight of what that statement means--over three years in this hobby. It feels like just yesterday I was combing the web, reading reviews and impressions, comparing the charts on HeadRoom with those for headphones I already had experience with, and just generally feeling like I would never find "the one."

 

And I didn't...I found two! One open and one closed. Now I just need a decently high end IEM to complete the trifecta and cover all possible usage scenarios. Sadly, from what I've gathered from various reviews, Beyer's IEMs tend toward the consumer friendly V-shaped/bass heavy sound signature rather than their usual bright, energetic balance with well-extended treble.

In terms of iem, I find the dba02-mkII pretty similar. Nice sparkle on the highs but it is a little lacking in the lows, like a lot of ba iems. Bass boosting fixes that for me.

My baby has come back to me! Thanks to Bryan from Zynsonix my dt880 is now officially a dual entry/balanced :D

More life richer sound compared to before :D

post #5319 of 8065

Just received my DT880's :D Coming from the 770's, I feel that there is about an equal impact amount of bass (less bloated and less one notey for sure)... Has anyone else noticed this? Reading the forums while waiting for my dt880's to arrive seems to have prepared me for a big decrease in bass impact from the dt770's. Although, I did spend some time going back to my ety hf5's, which may have also altered my initial impression of the dt880's. Also more bass than the k550's for sure, although that's not much of a surprise.  Basically, there seems to be plenty amounts of bass, maybe even erring on the "more than neutral" side. Is this normal? The only other headphones I am able to compare them to are the dt770's, k550's, and hf5's, and have not dabbled into others such as hd600, so maybe it's just a relative thing? Or perhaps the bass tightens up after burn in? The mids and highs are both very well defined still.

^^ Tyl Hertsens described the bass on the DT880 as being "strong, but not overly so". It's interesting how different people's impressions of bass are. It's hardly uncommon to find people who complain it's too little for them but many others find it to be spot on or even slightly too much. 

post #5321 of 8065

for me...dt880s bass is just fine.

I'm listening to dubstep right now and it's just right for me. I don't really like it when it goes BOOOOOOM

post #5322 of 8065

For me the WUB WUB WUB's have to come from my Ultrasone HFI-780's, the DT880's just don't give me that same ear tickle that the 'Sones do...

A friend of mine who also owns 800s had significantly less bass than I had on mine running the same amps. With our n=2 test and all of the discrepancy on here I can't help but wonder if we have some quality control issues with this model.

Whenever people seem to have trouble reaching a consensus on a particular headphone's sound signature, that generally tells me it's pretty neutral. If it had a strong, obvious signature, that would come out in the impressions. In other words, the people's comments end up being more about how well the headphone meets their own needs rather than the headphone itself, which, lacking a strong signature, doesn't really have much to say for itself.

I never found the DT880's to have too much bass. Actually, I never found any headphone to have too much bass for me. But the bass quality on the DT880's is fantastic.
