Lately I've been so impressed with the DT 880's bass and particularly the sub-bass. I recently got the K712 with its famously increased bass compared to previous AKG K7xx models and it does have good bass and is extended quite well and I started thinking that the K712 had the best bass of any of my 'phones. I was wrong. I hadn't spent enough time going back and forth between it and the DT880 because I was still in the honeymoon phase haha. After eventually coming to terms with the K712's imperfections as well as its strengths, I went back to the DT880 expecting to have to get used to less bass quantity but that hasn't happened at all. The bass, and sub-bass, on the DT880 is every bit as satisfying as the K712's, if not more so. I continue to be surprised by it.
For those interested... take a listen to Bjork's song Hyper-Ballad from the album Post and checkout the awesome sub-bass. It sounds clearer and more accurate than I previously remember and is every bit as good as the K712 in that regard if not better.
These things continue to impress me. I've realized that good headphones do that. That's one of the perks of this hobby eh? With the right equipment your music never gets old. In fact it sometimes seems like its brand new all over again. :)
