They all chant in unison if one listens very carefully... too many German headphones within close proximity to each other. :D

Even Tho I love my DT880 premium 600's and is happy with it and my NFB15.32, something at the back of my mind keep telling me that i missing out on something, so I been having tube amp's on my mind. Even tho I have to save them, Like I wont be happy til I get one. I been eyeing Both Little DOT MK 3 mainly because it seem like a more affordable option for me, I also been eyeing the Dark Voice 336se.  The thing is I don't know what it is that I feel like that I missing from my DT880's with my NFB15.32 it just the feeling is there, if any one gets what i mean.

For me, it was the hazy imagining and pinpointing that felt lacking. A tube amp, dark voice 336, isn't the answer. bass had more impact but doesn't solve my other issues.

Indeed, I had the same with my Vali

 

honestly the NFB 10ES2 balanced out has nice bass! It's heavy and tactile. Worth the price an trouble imo, plus ofc the imaganing and pin point sound stage

Yes IMO it's a good sounding Amp for DT880 600 Ohms.

+1 for me...I have the MKIII with the 600ohm Beyers and it is impressive. Just make sure everything else in the chain is of good quality.

I can vouch for the Schiit Valhalla with the 600 ohm, sounds amazing. Seems these cans love good SET OTL amps.

Soon to be the proud new owner of some DT 880's, courtesy of Mshenay. Can't wait to get my first real audio set up going, everything should be here by the end of the week :gs1000smile:

Thanks to the link provided by wolfetan44, the 880 Premiums I picked up from Amazon at a nice price will be delivered tomorrow. I'm looking forward to checking them out, although my Asgard 2 won't ship until the week of 02/14. I'll have to make due with the HP jack on my Pioneer SX-880 until then.

 

I'm also contemplating getting the Bottlehead Crack for a project.

Hanks, welcome to the club! I only wish I could have sold you my Vali along with the DT 880s >.> saved you some money

 

either way enjoy! 

 

Oh and check out my review of the Schiit Vali in my sig if you want to get super excited about it

Doesn't the DT880s benefit from some equalization on the treble frequencies? I have been playing with a new toy, a parametric equilizer. I am using it as a plugin to the Fidelia player on my Mac. I am finding that with some music, the highs, like the tapping of symbols has, for lack of a better word, a sheen or sparkle to it. Sometimes the notes played can become a bit sibilant.

Am I correct on this?

I have been working to correct only the frequencies that I need to correct. I have succeeded only in part. I think my current settings is cutting off too much of some of the treble frequencies. I guess it requires a careful balance, one that may take time to get good enough.

Does anyone know where the frequecy peaks are on these phones? What do you guys think?

Of course there are about 4,352 versions of the 880. You need to state which one.

I have the DT880 Premium that I recently purchased. From what I have been told, mine should be no different from the Pro version.

Assuming you mean the 250 ohm Premium, yes, it should be the same for the purposes of EQing.
