There is no such thing as DT880 Pro 600 Ohm...

 

Or did you mean DT880 Pro (250 Ohm)?

It does seem to exist, but it is rare.

At first I also thought DT880 Pro only available at 250 Ohm but forum member zeinharis has one.
You can see the photos of DT880 Pro 600 Ohm in "DT880 600 ohm BS-Page24".smily_headphones1.gif

I saw Jaben Au sell DT880 600 ohm at $399. You can check below link:

So having spent more time with the DT990/32, it seems that the sound has settled, and now it actually sounds quite more like the 600ohm, including the treble. Dunno why the first day it sounded warmer and smoother in the top end. Now, they are too close to tell. They sound like 99% 600ohm now, just easier to drive, and not as refined. I'll take back what I said, and mostly agree with Zombie.

I still think that for those with less than truly serious amps, should look into these, instead of getting the 600ohm and using entry level or portable amps. They have more dynamics than an underamped 600ohm.

I wish to hear your personal opinion.

I don't have experience with those.

Ah, my bad...

 

Now... I wonder how that compares to the Premium 600 Ohm.

IIRC, zombie_x and others have said the Premium and Pro are identical aside from the higher clamping force of the Pro (which adds a little bit of bass impact).

Hi, newb ask here, what is the best between 32, 80, 250,or 600 Ohm with Xonar Essence ST? Thanks.

post #1028 of 1643

Choose whichever sounds best to you, although the differences are not large. If the Xonar Essence ST is configured and working properly, it can drive any of them, but it is technically less suited for use with the two lowest impedance versions (again, the audible difference is not major). Maybe it would not be loud enough with the 600 Ω headphones for some people, but for most it should be fine.

Well to my ear's the DT880/600 ohm Pro is less colorful sounding than the DT880/600 Premium but both have the same soundstage, that is the reason why i picked the DT880/600 ohm Pro wink.gif

What about comfort?
They said that Pro has higher clamping force than Premium.
Did you feel very much different in term of clamping force between Pro and Premium?
post #1031 of 1643

You can reduce the clamping force by bending/stretching the headband.

I have a small head in size so i don't have any problem with it's clamping, the headband do stretch every day and now it's more comfortable than ever, i lend the DT880/600 ohm Pro to one of my friend for music mastering on his demo song's and the result is awesome (i listen the result with my MS1i)

Any chance of T70 vs HD600 vs DT880 / 600Ohm? the two latter are the only ones I've had the chance to listen to for an extended period of time, from the ones mentioned on the first page. I'm mostly curious about the midrange of the T70, since it's one of very few closed cans that seem to have the detail I want, with velour pads. biggrin.gif

cheers

Hi,

 

Sure I can do a direct comparison right now if you want. I have all three on hand as we speak. What did you want to know exactly besides the midrange?

 

Between all three headphones, the HD600 has the most midrange while the T70 is right below it and the DT880 is least. The HD600 is quite lush, the T70 is full but somewhat lacking, and the DT880 is nice and sweet but lacks overall body. The DT880 has a very detailed midrange but it is somewhat recessed,  though it's better than the 250Ohm DT880. The T70 has a similar midrange to the DT880 but fuller and more detailed and resolving, but not like the HD600's midrange. It will still sound thin in direct comparison.

Can you also kind enough to compare Denon AH-D5000 against DT880/600Ohm in term of bass, treble, soundstage, separation and mids?
Thanks in advance.
