DT 880 PRO recommended for someone who loved the DT 990 PRO ? - Page 2

post #16 of 24

That's my own special trolling method. People make threads asking about the differences between two headphones and I offer to purchase both and compare them side by side.

 

OWNAGE!

 

Wait.. .what?

 

No time for this silliness...

So what part of coming in and asking your own questions for yourself isn't a thread jacking? 

 

I don't care what anyone says if you walk in to someone else's thread and they've asked questions, you can call it what you want, but if you start asking your own questions for yourself and having your own discussions taking over the thread then I'm sorry but that is a thread jacking. How's it not?

OK you're right, you are back in central command of this forum thread sir. lol.

 

You seem like you want me to argue with you, but I don't want to. It's just a forum. Chill out.

Wait..what just happened? It was a thread jack then, and trolling? Well sorry for trying to defend you then man.. I can't tell if you are being serious or not.

 

Getting back tot he point of this thread, the DT880 sounds different from the DT990. The DT880 is flatter and warmer IMO. It has more midrange than the DT990 but has less bass/treble. The soundstage is also half as big as it was before. You may like the DT880 but if you like the throbbing bass of the DT990 then you might not like it.

I'm not being serious, I'm just agreeing with whatever he says because I'm not into random internet showdowns.

Thanks for defending me though beerchug.gif. I put thommo on block so his hormone situation is pretty much solved.

machoboy for someone who doesn't want to argue I feel as though I have to point out that in your previous post you said you were 'done' and bow'd yourself out of the thread - yet there you are posting trying to bait me - I guess my point about you being ignorant was proven, now have some respect and that's the last I'll say to you on the matter. 

 

ON TOPIC, Zombie_x, I must say that I do like the bass on the DT 990 Pro but my favourite element of that headphone lays with the wideness of the soundstage and the detail retrieval. I have heard that the DT 880 is a detail monster but I've only ever heard the DT 990 Pro....

 

If it helps any I used the DT 990 Pro for everything movies, games, music etc and I listen mainly to stuff like Red Hot Chili Peppers and Prodigy for example. So I do like a good bassline but I really like musicality. 

 

I guess my main question with regards to these headphones is the bass....is the bass a lot less 'thicker' on the DT 880 Pro or is it more a case of it's totally different sounding in the placement and would you say the bass is barely there? I'm finding it difficult to articulate my question properly but I'll try and sort that out if you don't understand what I mean...

Hey,

 

I understand what you are asking.

 

The DT990 has more detail IMO as it's brighter, but it's not much more detail than the DT880. The DT880's soundstage, to me at least, sounds cramped when you compare it to the DT990. The DT990's soundstage is much wider and airier. Between the two the DT990 is more musical but the DT880 isn't bad. The DT880 isn't as snappy and alive sounding. The bass is about half as much as what the DT990 has. They both are well extended and controlled, but the DT880 will not have the same presentation. It present and satisfying but not pumping like the DT990. It's more mellow, reserved, and has more texture to it.

Yeah it's the texture of the bass part that has my curiosity peaked....because the bass of the DT 990 is very thick I would say, but also well controlled as you say, also would you say that there's double the price difference between the Pro vs Premium versions of these headphones would you say it's worth the extra expense? I like the look of those metal cups!

Hey,

 

The premium versions sound a little different but I'd say it's not worth it. The cups are prettier but not worth the extra $100 or so. The Pro models have more bass as they clamp tighter.
