Epic. You gave a much better summary of each of those headphones than I ever could. I think we'll be referring to this review for many years to come.
I want your DAC, by the way.post #153 of 557511/1/12 at 6:33ampost #154 of 557511/1/12 at 6:38ampost #155 of 557511/1/12 at 6:38am
Glad to see such great marks for the DT880. Of course I'm going to be a cheerleader for my own headphone, but I feel like they kind of got shoved aside over the years now that all the newer (and uber-expensive) cans have come out. You're absolutely right. They're a phenomenal value, especially if you managed to snag a pair before the price started creeping up over the last few years. At the $250 I paid, they're an absolute steal. Non-stop listening bliss since I got them, and impressive build quality and comfort.
I was also pleased to see you mention the DT660. I've never tried it, and it's barely mentioned on Head-Fi. HeadRoom doesn't currently sell it. In fact, apart from the customer-submitted content on Amazon and other consumer retailer sites, I know of only one other review of it (along with its big brother, the DT860):

Great thread here :) I can see why it took over a year to write this up. I skimmed through some parts of it but when I get the chance I'll read it all later today. I agree with most of it that I've read such as the DT880, HD800, HE6, etc. I do wish you had the AD2k however as that's one of my favoritepost #157 of 557511/1/12 at 6:46ampost #158 of 557511/1/12 at 7:07ampost #159 of 557511/1/12 at 7:08ampost #160 of 557511/1/12 at 7:10ampost #161 of 557511/1/12 at 7:18ampost #162 of 557511/1/12 at 7:21ampost #163 of 557511/1/12 at 7:26ampost #164 of 557511/1/12 at 7:27am
