Need info on Beyerdynamic DT 330 mk II

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just picked up a Beyerdynamic DT 330 mk II on Ebay for a throwaway price, as the plug was faulty. They look and sound pretty good, except there seems to be some strain damage to the cable right where it exits the plug. Held at certain angles, the phones sound good, at other angles one or both of the channels drop out or distort. I imagine putting a new plug on will make them fully functional.

My searches on Google, HeadFi, HeadWize as well as the Beyerdynamic website did not turn up much info leading me to believe that these are very old. Does anyone have any info or are familiar with this model? How old is it? How good is it? Anybody have specs on them? I would appreciate any information.

I am going to be travelling from tomorrow for the next three weeks. On to Germany and then to Asia. I thought I'd post this on my return, but could not resist it!! I don't know if I have much internet access in Asia as I will be doing some remote towns, but will look for an internet cafe or net access at some of the offices I will be visiting. Thank you in advance!

Aah, the old DT330mkII... When I was DJ back in the late -80's, we had a pair of DT330's. Of course, we didn't listen to them with our most analytical ears but as I can remember they sounded great. Powerful and dynamic drivers that could create massive dB-numbers. As far as Hi-Fi qualities go, I'm unfortunately not the person to ask. Remember, this was 1988 and then I had quite a different view on what music should sound like...

Thank you, T_E ! I guess when I get back from my travels, I will solder on a new jack and figure it out for myself. Thanks again!
