Wanting to trade or sell the DT 880 600 ohm which has been modded into a closed back model according to this thread:
I'm would like to trade them for a MrSpeakers Mad Dog 3.2, or sell them.
They started their life as a DT 880 Premium 250 ohm.
I did the modding steps described in the first post.
To get more isolation, I send them to NoXter for the improved isolation with alubutyl.
The mod is more or less reversable. I'll include the original felt pieces that were in the ear cup housing.
I don't have the original DT 880 ear pads anymore.
While they where at NoXter's, upon my request (and payment) he put 600 ohm drivers in them, and added new ear pads.
All bought directly from BeyerDynamic in Germany.
The headband got new and fuller padding
This was in October 2013, so the headphones are basicly new, except the housing.
There's no channel imbalance at all.
Included is the carrying pouch and box.
The box is slightly beaten up because the first owner used the box as a shipping parcel.
I'll ship double boxed.
As needed for the closed back mod, these DT 880 CB have DT 770 velour ear pads.
The slider at the right side is a bit looser than it should be, which is a common problem with this type of headphone. It's not a big deal, you only have to adjust the ear cup more often. On your head it stays put.
This DT 880 CB is the best passive isolating headphone you can get.
While a bit heavy because of the mods, this headphone is still very comfortable.
Despite the mods and the 600 ohm drivers, they are still a bit too bright for my taste.
With good recordings they shine. But with lesser productions (the bulk of my music collection) they are ruthlessly revealing.
Only trading them for a MrSpeakers Mad Dog 3.2, or selling for 200,- Euro plus shipping and Paypal fees.
I'll ship worldwide, with insurance and tracking.
The post below is because when I had them the first time for sale, it was with red leather pads. Those are sold by now.
