From an E10, went to the Odac. Didn't think a 60$ would make such a difference in my setup.

Highly recommenced if you only need USB.

OK,

I've sold my Beyer DT880/600 Ohm 'phones.

Guess I'm kicked out of the club!?

I will miss your avatar (seriously).  Did you upgrade to something else?

Hello. Why did you sell it?

Good Evening! Just curious anyone inputing the dt-880's into an Arcam Alpha 9 integrated amp. I'm expecting my 880's very shortly...and interested at length of burn in time...sensitivity...balance and tonal qualities...with Classical...Solo Piano...Big Band...Acid Jazz...and Electronic genres of music. Cheers...Headshot65

:O even I wouldn't sell my DT880s.

 

I've been gone for awhile stalking the Mr. Speakers Alpha Dog thread.

 

I pulled the trigger and ordered the new metallic black Alpha Dogs :cool: they look stunning and sound fantastic. Once I get these headphones I may be gone from this thread for awhile

......yes, my bad, I sold the DTs.

But they didn't get too much head time after I tasted the Stax.  :veryevil:

You're of course going to post a detailed comparison.

So ....wanted to share my experience with Beyer's Customer Service 

 

I bought a rare 880 Pro- 600 around one month ago , the condition was pristine except the deteriorated velours and headband , I assume the previous owner might have been pressing the pads constantly while listening , I have seen some Audio Engineers do that , its stupid that they don't know that cutting the airspace will change the sound but such is the way of the world , any ways I contacted Beyer , they were kind enough to reply within 24 hours giving me details of Beyer's "Indian Head Office" , I contacted them and asked if I could get a pair of EarPads and Headband ....the reply was rather unsettling , they didn't have any spares in stock , they were going to import spares in May 

I requested them if I could special order the required spares , to my surprise they arranged all the spares they were going to import in May + My spares to ship next week but they had another surprise for me , they decided to send me my spares on their own dime

So.....yeah it took a long time to go through shipping and customs but it was all worth it in the end 

 

Beyer being a relatively small company with this attitude is doing business in the right way , I wish more and more companies showed this kind of gesture .....the greatest example being HiFiMAN who basically repudiated me when I needed help ...So if any Beyer representative happens to read this "You guys rock !"

A short answer would be, occassionally the Stax fool me into thinking I am listening to The Real Thing.

For example, one time I was sitting outside listening to music in the backyard on my deck.
One song was a live album, it opened with some applause, my first thought was, why are my neighbours applauding?
Another song started with some forest sounds, I thought there were real birds nearby for a second or two.

In addition, I find most dynamics have a slightly tizzy, sizzly spot somewhere in the treble region, I don't hear this from Stax headphones.

The Stax also remind me less of listening via headphones and more of listening via loudspeakers, they seem to have a better sense of space.

They would grab both of us by the shirt and throw us out, because I just did the same thing.

post #6942 of 10423

Hello,

 

I'm a new happy owner of a DT880 600 ohm, can you suggest me the most rated amps under 500$ please? Musical genres: 60% prog/hard rock - 40% jazz/classical

 

Chain: Foobar/Hi Face two -> Rega Dac

 

The amp should also run with Alessandro Ms1i and Shure srh940, but basically I need something dedicated to DT880.. just after a couple of days I realized will be my main gear :)

 

Thanks

Stop selling your DT880's.

No but seriously, Chris, enjoy your Stax. And stick around on this thread.

I want to be part of the Stax Mafia too!

The DT880s hold a special place in my heart... they were my initial gateway drug into the Beyerdynamic House Sound, They're going to be keepers for sure*! biggrin.gif
