EQ will work roughly the same on any version of DT880. The only difference is standard driver variance which is usually fairly insignificant. This EQ worked well for me but these days I don't use EQ, I quite like the stock signature.

Same, I never EQ any headphone I own, instead I either change source or if the source permits it change op-amps.

I started to really enjoy the flat non-EQ'd DT880 when I listen to rock music. Right now I'm listening to Freewill by Rush from Permanent Waves (24-bit FLAC). Mind = BLOWN. Neil Peart is a god on the drums and the DT880s show that so clearly. The cymbal crashes!!! O.O and who says the DT880 is bright?? synergy and source material is everything

 

I just got a replacement pair of stock Beyerdynamic velour earpads. My current pair is over a year old and a bit squished down. I'm interested to see how they will sound again with fresh pillows : D I will post my impressions tonight along with pictures of both earpads on the headphones

 I have been listening to Rush since the 80s (and trying to drum along with Neil for as long), and for certain he is an incredible talent to say the least. There are of course other drummers who I think are just as spectacular, perhaps even more so in the case of Danny Carey from Tool. I do not think any other drummer could play like that! Not sure if you are familiar with Tool, if not well worth a listen. And yes, I don't feel the 880s are bright, now the Grado prestige line, those I feel are bright cans.

I'm so happy to hear you say that, Rush is definitely in my top 10 bands. And yeah, Peart is a beast for sure. One of my greatest accomplishments is playing Tom Sawyer on the kit, that's a fun one! All my gear should be coming in tomorrow, hurry up already!

Haha Tool is one of my favorite bands. I think Danny Carey has more complex polyrhythmic drumming skills than Neil Peart but guess who he studied that from? DT880s really make drums sound spectacular with the sparkly highs and upper mids

Amazing. My EQ setup is identical to yours, except that smaller blip around 4K. My ears are not that good anymore. I find music with the DT880s not EQed can sound good, but I like mine EQed, particularly for classical music. I find music with allot of cymbals to be a tad bright after awhile. I imagine once I get used to this, where it becomes "old" to me, I probably will take EQ off to "spice" the music up a bit. The emphasis on the high freqs is IMO not as much as many make it out to be. And for rock, it brings out more a good drummer.

Grew up in Toronto with Rush back in the day. Peart is an amazing drummer but let's not forget about Portnoy... I do like a little Jordison for speed every now and again as well. biggrin.gif

What is the cheapest online retailer to get replacement DT 880 velour pads?  I feel like mine are getting flatter.

I found these DT770 replacement earpads for $29. http://www.adorama.com/BDEDT770V.html?gclid=CL3N757ctrwCFQ-DfgodkBYArw

 

But, I don't know if they work the same with the DT880s even though they are shaped similar. I personally purchased mine off of headphone.com for around $39 plus shipping. On my label it says these are replacements for the DT990. However I'm more than positive they fit the DT880 the same way.

 

BTW guys I am postponing my impressions of the new earpads until tomorrow. College life has me aimed towards a potential double date tonight and some beer pong.:beerchug::cool:
