Looking at these more and more, after recent reviews of them and enjoying my DT770's more every day.
What type of music are these best suited for? The DT770-80's do well with rock and electronic type music, but I also find myself listening to stuff like Terence Trent D'Arby (finally got ahold of "Neither Fish Nor Flesh), live Bjork, Lost Highway soundtrack, Cibo Matto and other stuff that doesn't quite fall into the rock category. Some jazz stuff too (Coltrane, Davis).
Anyway, I'm wondering if the DT880's are a good choice for these sorts of music. Still looking at Grado/Alessandro stuff too (mainly for rock, again), but I'm more intrigued by the DT880 the more I read about it.
I have a JMT Pimeta with single buffers that I'm using right now. It has the option to use ac power, but I've been sticking to the single 9V for the time being.
So would the DT880 be a good addition to the family?
I've had and heard many hadphones (HD650, K501, Rs-1, SR-60, HD565, etc.) and I can say that the DT880 it's the best compromise I can reach with the budget.
For me they are great with all kinds of music, but I think they "shine" with classical and jazz for their very good timbral accuracy (really every "very good" headphones shines particularly in acoustic music as they have to reproduce real instruments and it's here where a very good headphone differentiates more from a less good headphone).
