The DT880 still has great extension and texture it just lacks impact and control that planars in general deliver.

 

i read swspiers review of he-400i and saw your comment on it. Are you still looking for he-400i?

i'm alright with selling mine and I bear the international shipping cost (since i'm in asia), if you're interested. Though tbh, razordogaudio has good open-box deals every time i open their website so, almost every week? lol.

 

The clamp force is a beotch though. and i'm not saying that just so i can curse, it really is.

Can you, please suggest/advice a comparable (to DT880) closed headphones?

DT880 are excellent - but sometimes closed version is needed...

 

Requirements: price level, sound quality, design, weight,... = +/- the same as DT800.

what's the price level you're talking about?

 

$500 or the current street level $250-$350?

 

there's really none at $200-$300 that is comparable to dt880 really, for closed headphones.

post #8644 of 8653

I think less than $300, as this is the price I've spent for DT880.

 

But price level above  $300 - can be also considered...

I'm with this guy, i want an headphone that is neutral and doesn't leak sound in (or out), i absolutely hate background noises.
The Dt770 are closed, but not as neutral.
is there a way to make the 880 closed? some MOD or something?

O.K. Forgot to mention - not necessary "Beyerdynamic's"...

I'm open to other brands...

You should consider Soundmagic Hp100/150.

Not as capable as DT880s but it's a pretty neutral closed back headphone, specially when compared with something like DT770

Best Luck!

If you are ready for some soldiering, Bravo V3 with IRL510 + input/output Caps Mods should be enought !

 

After plenty of nice amps should do it all depends of your taste SolidState, Hybrid, Tube, and finally your budget.

There was a mod for this floating around a few years ago.
