Getting the DT880s and need some help - Page 3

post #31 of 41
Thread Starter 

I'm not too concerned over portability, i have read a bit on the Audioengine D1 and people say it sounds good with the dt880s would i even need an amp for them?

So 250 ohm with Audioengine D1 is the way to go?

Get the Pro 250 ohm. I've heard them, and they sound great. Ask PurpleAngel, but I believe that he recommends the more expensive DT880 Premiums as not really providing much better SQ. Save your money for some other audio equipment smily_headphones1.gif

$280 for the DT990 Premium 250-Ohm and $153 for the DT990 Pro 250-Ohm.

So get the Pros.

 

Edit, big oops, did not know you where talking about DT880, thought is was DT990s.

do you ever have problems with the dt880s coiled cord my main problem is how easily they tangle and when the coils get messed up on other coiled cords

Get the DT-880 in 250 ohm. I own the 600 version but it's harder to amp and quality difference is marginal. The E17 for instance will nlt correctly drive the 600 ohm version, you will need the E09k combo. My advice: take a hard look at the O2/odac combo. You will not find better quality at that price, it is very neutral and delivers very good power. Google it, you will not find a lot of info on this site due to a spat betweennkts eveloper and the admins here. But its specs are terrific.

No worries for the cord of the 880, quality is good and it doesn't coil. Only disadvantage is thzt you can't replace it.
