Where's Headroom dammit! They said there were going to have the DT880 600ohm measurement but nothing yet!
Honestly, I don't push the DT880 / 600 heavily on here just for kicks. I've heard all the favourites around this price range, the HD600, HD650, K701 and has a recabled DT880 '03 250ohm (which is rated better than the '05 250 ohm) and all through great equipment and amps that can push them easily and tbh, none of them, for overall balanced sound, can really match the DT880 / 600, particularly if the DT 880/600 is matched with a warm source (like a Sony JA3ES ;)) . If the others were better, then I would of bought those but I haven't. The others are better at certain aspects but for overall sound, both in sound signature and sound quality for a balanced sound and other aspect many people ignore like timbre, the DT880/600 beats them all in this price range.
I always try and get the best value for money thing, no matter what it is, just like everyone else.
the DT880/600 measures different and does subjectively sound different as well. Far from placebo.
ALL the doubters are always people who have not tried them. Ask 'DavidMahler' on here for a former doubter's perspective.
