    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    Beyerdynamic DT 880, 250 Ohms that I recently purchased are a real revelation for me. Nicely balanced throughout the frequency range, they are a pleasure to listen to for hours on end. Have not noticed treble peaks at all. Mainly using Valhalla2 with National PCC88/ 7DJ8. Closely matching Arya...

    ...or no sense at all. The world has gone bananas :upside_down:

    Yep, pairing Jot2, in my case, with Beyerdynamic T1.2 was a revelation

    Arya is not known to have legendary sub-bass

    I second this as long as you are prepared to fiddle with it.

    We are just discussing, and trying to make some sense of our hobby, so I don't see this as confrontation. Anyway, I think we are in agreement regarding the Arya and sibilance, no matter the question of definition or semantics.

    We should be using words as intended Definition of sibilant : having, containing or producing the sound of or a sound resembling that of the s or the sh in sash Anyways, I don't find Arya to be unpleasantly sibilant in the above sense. If one hears harshness or emphasis in the s/ sh region...

    Yes, that is also true. Like with two channel audio, equipment matching is important and makes a difference

    At matched volume levels (80 db) I did not find Arya more resolving than LCD-2F (using Reveal + plugin). I would say apparently more resolving due to somewhat recessed LCD-2 in HF. On the other hand for my ears, LCD-2F sounds much better than Arya in LF detail and impact. As far as imaging...

    Frequency response might be objective (it has its own headphone measuring problems) but I find it uninformative for the most part in a sense of defining or predicting my enjoyment with the headphones. As we all agree, I think, this is a highly subjective hobby, and calling reviewers or each...

    Yes, 100%. Our ear physiology and sound perception differ widely. I found Arya sibilant as well until I cleaned up the signal from source to DAC.

    My LCD-2F is from 2016/2017 with the new pads. It is still my favorite headphone (with Reveal+ plugin) and yes it complements Arya quite well. Low frequencies and Midrange as far as instrument tonality and body goes to LCD-2 while High Frequencies and soundstage/ imaging are Arya's strong...

    Yes, you are correct in general. Low impedance OTL, however, makes my LCD-2 and Arya really sing.

    Yes, exactly. That is why DeoxIT works on HiFi gear.

    WD-40 acts as a lubricant, rust preventative, penetrant, and moisture displacer. So no, it will not make it worse but there are better products for this particular problem. Ordinary silicone grease is also problematic as it causes swelling of rubber-based products.

    You can also consider this (safe for plastics) and you can use it for the RCA/XLR connections clean up on your gear
