Selling the DT 880 2005 Premium, 250 ohm, which I NoXter modded into a closed back model according to this thread:
I did all the steps described in the first post, but not the improved isolation.
The mod is completely reversable. I'll include the original felt pieces that were in the ear cup housing.
All you need to obtain are the stock DT 880 ear pads, I don't have them anymore.
Included is also 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 have DT 770 velour ear pads.
I cleaned the ear pads carefully.
The slider on the right side, which you use to adjust the highs of the cups, is not as firm as it should be. It's a common issue with these models. You have to adjust the highs once in a while, but on your head it stays firm.The left side is okay.
In the modding proces, I had to pull off the rings that holds the driver with a tiny screwdriver. While doing this, sometimes the screwdriver slipped into the fabric that covers the driver, creating little holes. The fabric is also a bit torned because I removed the stock felt on the driver and put it back after trying different damping materials. The little holes doesn't affect the sound in any way, and you cant's see them on the outside.
Reason for selling: no matter how much you dampen the cups and the drivers, this DT 880 remains a bright and detailed headphone. I kept them so long because of their unmatched comfort, but I can't get the sound up to my taste.
The asking price is firm, no offers please.
If a sale at this price is not possible, I'll buy new DT 880 pads, mod them back to stock and sell them at a higher price.
Only selling to members with positive feedback, here or elsewhere.
I'll ship worldwide, with insurance and tracking.
Playpal as a gift, or otherwise add 4 %.
The weight of the parcel is under the 2 kilo.
Edit: I'm selling these now without the red leather pads.
