That's how it was explained to me, I wonder how that works out with balanced amplification, and Dac processing or rather what are the benifits on paper. I know that for me, my balanced Amps [in the same price points] have 10/10 times sounded better than my SE ones. I won't get into which one is which ect... ect... but I'm just curious

 

Though I might take this topic else were :3, also guys I might be need of another DT 880 <.< I've got a $180 modded Grado and I'm curious how it stacks up to the DT 880, which sells for about $180ish used :3 [Single End Prefered ]

If you recable your DT880 stick to pure copper. I wouldn't go anything silver with the DT880 as it is already a brighter sounding headphone.

Does it need to be CRYO treated?
