    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    I am now going by ear. I am going one step at a time from the original parameters that I used from the Internet. So far, I have the following, a 4.1 db boost at 31 Hz, a 2.2 db boost at 62 Hz, a 3.1 db boost at 4000 Hz, and a 4 db deemphasis at 8000 Hz. I am thinking that I do not need the boost...

    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    I am right now using Amarra Luxe. I decided to give their EQ functionality a try. i looked up the DT880, and found EQ settings for the headphones. So I implemented those changes. I am now listening to the mid frequencies that I did not know was there, at least comparatively speaking. I do think...

    I do not understand why some describe the treble the way they do, using exaggerated terms, like "spikes in the ear". I am very sensitive to the very high frequencies. The treble is boosted a bit, but by not that much, maybe a few decibles. My sensitive ears have no problems with it in several...

    Interesting! I was thinking of stepping up to the T1 one of these days, but now I think maybe not.

    Pure Music player

    I have searched for this topic, but the most up to date one is three years old. I want to know if anyone is finding this software buggy. I have found it very problematic. For instance, when I select " Hog mode", there is allot of distortion. Even when I disable it, I then still will get the...

    Modifying Headphones ?

    I understand. Those DT 480 headphones sound like they were a type of knockoff, where the best care was not placed in its development and fabrication, unnecessarily falling short of its potential. However, it had something going for it if you were able to turn it into fine sounding headphones...

    Apogee Duet for the Mac and iPad

    I have recently purchased this for my DAC/Amp, It will be doing second duty for my recording of music that I will play on a synthesizer. This is one nice audio device! I found something out. Using the headphone outs, there was a small bump in the higher frequencies. I suspect this is for mixing...

    Modifying Headphones ?

    What a soliloquy! :) I agree with what you have said here. If the phones turn out to be deficient in some manner, even with regards to your listening taste, save up for ones that will work better for you. There is no free lunch with user modifications. The only modification that makes sense is...

    Blown speaker?

    Hello all! I have DT880 Premium 600 ohm headphones. I have it connected to an "Apogee Duet for the Mac and iPad". I was playing around with EQ settings using the GlissEQ dynamic parametric EQ plugin to my Audirvana+ player. I accidentally moved the EQ curve way up. Music blasted through the...

    Is there an audible difference between the 250-ohm and 600-ohm DT880s? Some say yes and others say no. Either way, the 600 version does sound very good to me with my Duet.

    Crack sounds like it would be a pleasurable experience. :wink:

    Apogee Duet 2. Seems to be a good DAC/amp.

    The Duet is a class 2 USB device. So for this and how it reclocks the signal, jitter is significantly reduced. Also, according to an engineer friend of mine, it probably significantly upsamples as part of its reconstruction filter for more effective filtering of the signal. He thinks it probably...

    I am not saying the sibilance is not there. But it is more manageable to my ears. It no longer sounds like distortion to me. (I wish I could explain this better)

    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    I have been listening to the Beyers plugged into a Duet. This is sounding very good. My previous amp, an O2, sounded thin and a bit sibilant. This is not the case with the Duet. So maybe a change of amp is in order? Bob
