Do you mean the Grados 225? If yes, I'd say no. 880s are semi-open, they still isolate a good amount coming in/out

Yes. I want to be able to hear my wife while listening to music. The Grado 225s allow me to do that but I don't like how they sound. I listen to mostly hiphop (90%)and then 80s rock/pop. I don't want to derail the thread but any open back recommendations would be helpful.

Forget the 880s? Any other Beyers then? My all-time favorite headphones are the T51Ps if that helps.

The Q701 might help in my case when my wife want to call me for dinner back then before Q701 she would open the door and throw me the POT for dinner now with Q701 she just say dinner and i would be able to hear her.Q701 works for me.:biggrin:

Just wanted to share this. I got these headphones about two weeks ago, along with a JDS Labs O2 and a SanDisk Sansa Fuze V1.  As many people have mentioned these headphones didn't "wow" me at all, but I wasn't disappointed because I wasn't expecting it, but man are these headphones nice. They are extremely comfortable, thanks to the extremely soft velour pads, and comfortable clamping force. The sound, ahhh where do I begin? They are so faithful to the sound (which is the reason why they don't "wow") and extremely detailed. People complain about the treble being too high and piercing, but this is not what I found, as I found them present, detailed but not overwhelming and I can say that they're enjoyable. I am mostly a classical listener and I am very picky with the sound of specific instruments, especially the piano (Superlux HD681s anyone?), but these headphones are very good at reproducing a airy atmosphere for the orchestra and piano, which I tested with Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No.1, and Beethoven's Piano Concerto No.5 'Emperor'. The orchestra sounds great and detailed. The separation of instruments id good and the sound stage is good but not particularly large. The bass is nice and not lacking (in my opinion). I found the bass to be accurate and not bloated, but accurate bass can be a problem for hiphop and rap listeners because it can feel a little boring.

The JDS Labs O2 is great. I don't have much to say about it except that it has virtually no coloration, no hissing, great build quality, and can drive the DT880s no problem. The Sansa Fuze + Rockbox is a great little MP3 player with a good DAC, and expandable memory. I am waiting for the LOD to arrive because it ships from Hong Kong, so I can avoid double amping. Although even from the regular headphone jack to the O2 it sounds great already. The first thing I tried was Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, and wow did it sound amazing (specially in FLAC). Well, I hope you guys enjoyed these first thoughts/Review. 

Is that a banana hanger/holder?cool nice and simple.....

The nice man in the big brown truck just brought me my DT880 Premiums and man am I in love. Carrie Underwood is magic, jazz is incredible, everything is just .... wow. I had concerns about the bass but these are perfect for me. I'm not a basshead at all and the bass in these is present and perfect -- just what I was looking for. The highs are a bit hot but after a bit of burn in I think they will probably tame a bit. Until then, I can compensate with the treble control on my amp.

 

Just wanted to announce my delight. Another happy DT880 owner joining the ranks :-)
