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:

 

They fit but the EDT 770 V pads are designed for closed headphones (DT770), the EDT 990 V are designed for open headphones (DT880/DT990). They are all interchangeable physically but which one you get will effect the sound.

Okay thank you guys for clarifying : D 

 

That's what I read on the label of my packaging "EDT 990 V" is just the model of the earpads designed for the open headphones DT880/990 series. Hence why there are evenly spaced perforations on the backside of the earpads to dampen and allow sound to pass through to the earpads. Those Germans and their engineering :smile:

Yeah

dt770 pads uses a denser foam and I think there is a filter covering the small little holes to the foam. On the 880s, the bass becomes boomy and sloppy. overall sound is muddy.

Finally got my DT880 600s back from repair, hearing them for the first time (long story short, I bought a used pair that had a dead left driver). I was worried about them being bright and thin, but they don't sound that way to me at all. I'm loving them! I also had them recabled with a Denon D2000 cable for aesthetic purposes as well as having it shortened to 1.8m, as 3m is uselessly long for me. Pics!

I've been spamming FROZEN OST on these babies for the past few weeks....vocals and instruments sound just amazing.

I really don't know where people get the impression of recessed mids on these. 

post #6402 of 8196

Most people at head-fi seem to believe that the term mids only include upper mids.

 

Upper mids are upper mids.  Mids are midss

 

What people hear refer to lower mids - is in fact midrange proper.

I personally never felt they were recessed in the mids. They can be lacking body with bad synergy or when underpowered which can give an impression of mids being recessed. But on a system with good synergy, they sound very neutral and natural and in no way recessed in the midrange.

Well I'm glad to report my NFB15.32 does these headphones justice, then. It's definitely not an overly thick or wet sounding headphone, but also definitely not thin and weightless. More than adequate body for musicality and pleasure :beyersmile:

It's all about finding a headphone that does well with you system or vice versa is what I realized with this hobby. I am seriously considering getting a DT 880 sometime as I had a good chance to try them out on various set-ups recently and I slowly fell in love with their sound, but I already have a neutral phone that I'm very satisfied with and I have another headphone on it's way in which I have no clue about it's sound, so it's probably going to be months before I get myself I pair.
