Broken within 2 months Paid a ridiculous amount of money for these, then one side stops working within a few months. Company said they would ship a part out that we would have to repair ourselves. Safe to say now almost 2 years later it's not in the mail. Also have received no response from company when trying to follow up about this. Please read the other reviews like this, I ignored them because of all the 5 stars and now I wish I didn't. 1so don't be ashamed to like what you like Obviously this is subjective, so don't be ashamed to like what you like, but..These are the real deal. Wonderfully neutral. I don't like words like 'soundstage' or 'imaging' because who the heck knows what those words mean - From a measurable, analytical standpoint, these are super close to flat, and very good at making the entire frequency spectrum audible, even, and clear. That's the kind of sound I like. I use them professionally for mixing because of this. They are perfect for this!Like some people here have said - there's something going on in the highs.. They become louder or softer dependent on the exact position on the head. Whenever I think there's something going on with the highs, I move them on my head a little and all is well. I personally think this high end that people talk about has more to do with positioning than anything else.Physically comfortable - I've worn them for 4-6 hours on end mixing, no discomfort.I got the 220 ohm (Is it 220? Not the low one, not the super high one, the middle impedance one) - They do indeed need something a bit more powerful than a phone to produce a rockin' volume.I think a lot of headphones tend to make sounds step all over each other - i.e., one frequency might mask another frequency at points - I think that these headphones produce all frequencies clearly at the same time. I hadn't realized this concept fully until hearing something as clear as these.Great headphones! Anyone serious about sound should own a pair. 5Amazing for the studio, but don t expect these to be your all-day/all-purpose headphones The sound quality is excellent for mixing and mastering. Has a decent soundstage and the separation of details compared to my previous closed cans (m50x) was so notable my ears had to go through an adjustment period. Have seen an improvement in the clarity of my mixes since using them. Also very enjoyable for pure listening purposes.Some notes: these bleed a ton of audio so you will hear outside noises if in public and others will hear your music even louder then you think. They also squeeze your head quite firmly which can get fatiguing after a couple of hours, especially if you wear glasses (thankfully the pads are extremely plush). If you get the 250ohm version, you will need a preamp or interface to get satisfying power. Using my phone/computer alone, I noticed the sound was lower and lacked the definition present with my interface.In conclusion, these are great for a studio or in-home listening set-up, but are not ideal for daily use/travel. 5Perfect for detailed mixdowns. I LOVE THESE... superbly well detailed and comfy enough to be worn for hours. After years of having my own large scale music studio, due to extensive travelling I need to use these primarily for detailed mixodwns of music that I'm working on, while in hotel rooms and other spaces that aren't my controlled studio ... and the results sound great on on other systems. Between these and my closed back Focal Pro's I am getting top quality mixes I didn't think were possible on headphones. 5Nice, but not wow. Happy to have them. I find headphone analysis to be extremely difficult. So much depends on the source. No phone will make an overly-compressed recording sound good. Impossible. With good or better phones, and an amp, you soon discover so much of the music produced these days is seriously over-produced and muddy by design. OK. Except for the very discriminating ears, I suspect once you cross the threshold of "good", comfort begins to dominate the overall assessment. With that in mind, I find these to be "smooth" phones with pretty good sound, that are extremely comfortable. I can literally wear them for hours. By contrast, I always know I'm wearing my Grado RS-1 phones (or any Grado). For audio qualiity, I'd rate these as good, but not "wow". I'm still waiting for the "wow" headphones. But when I look at my collection of phones that include several low-to-mid grades (Grados, Sennheiser HS 280 pro) these tend to be the first I reach for. Leakage always exist for open backs. Even at only modest listening volume, the leakage is easily audible from 8-10 feet away. Your neighbors will know what you're listening to. That's just a design issue. On the other hand, when I'm listening, I can't hear ANYTHING my wife is saying to me, even from 3 feet away. :) 4so wanted a nice and flat sounding pair of headphones I used to mix and compose my music mainly on Event monitors and Senn HD 280 headphones. After moving to an apartment I knew I was not going to be able to mix on monitors anymore, so wanted a nice and flat sounding pair of headphones.After gathering a ton of feedback, I decided that the DT-880's were the right pair for me in this price range. I am very happy with my decision. I run these through my Apogee Duet Firewire interface and must say the sound is really excellent. While I still need to check my final mixes on monitors, I can do 90% of my composing/mixing with these and then just tweak final mixes with my monitors and a couple of other headphones. The Duet powers the headphones pretty well, but not to the same level of many other headphones, so that is something to keep in mind.If you want a neutral, clear, and detailed sound, I would definitely recommend these headphones. They might not be the most exciting, colored, or "fun" sounding pair, but they work very well for professional applications or for someone looking for a more elegant sound. 5At first the thing sounded like it was the holy grail of high definition and ... If you're SERIOUS about your music, read this:I've had the Beyerdynamic DT-770 Pro (250 Ohm) for nearly a year. At first the thing sounded like it was the holy grail of high definition and modern music. The bass was tight, and since I'm an electronic music producer, I thought it was perfect.But as I used them and realized I was not only getting extremely fatigued from them to the point they were hurting my ears. I wasn't getting ANY of my mixes right. And then I would hear something else on the monitors, change things here and there, back to the cans, change other things, and even though I was A/Bing with a good lot of commercially released tracks, I couldn't really hear exactly what was different about my tracks and the rest. I just knew they were lacking something but by then I probably had spent around 6 hours in the cans and my ears wouldn't work for s*** anymore.I never really tried the 880s because all I had to choose from was the 770 and the 990 back when I got them. To me the 990s sounded great but it was about the same as the 770s but with less sub bass pressure since it was an open back headphone. And I didn't care a lot about the 880 because a lot of people told me they were "flat", "lifeless" and "boring".So after long days of research for the perfect flat headphone out there and being careful about not overly spending my money in one of those $3000 headphones (which might sound good at some point but not for the moment), I decided to give the 880s a try.They just came in today.EVERYTHING that was wrong with my mixes showed up in THESE CANS. THIS is definition right here. It's the closest thing I've heard to my Adams.So if you're SERIOUS about music production, get these. Your music is not supposed to sound good through your cans. It's supposed to sound accurate. So if it sounds bad on the boring cans, then there's work to do. 5Great "studio-quality" phones for the money I was in the market to replace my Sony MDR-7506. The Sony is an amazing headphone for the price, but I required a more discriminating monitor for 24-bit studio recording sessions. After some research, I purchased the Beyerdynamic DT-880.The DT-880 features comfortable, "semi-open" pads that allow you to hear things in the room while your are monitoring-- Great for recording vocals, or performing live with a personal band mix in-ear. This configuration is not so great if you mix or monitor in a loud room and need complete sound isolation.The Beyerdynamic is very discerning to my ears. It reveals beautifully recorded material with a rich, spacious soundscape. The DT-880 is comfortable both projecting the lush character of a dense mix and revealing the delicate nuances of a solo voice.These phones are great 24-bit or vinyl listeners, but they will ravage your ears with every harsh tone introduced through poor recording or mp3 compression.I do not consider these headphones "inexpensive" or "budget-priced," however I believe the DT-880 delivers superior performance at a price that I find reasonable.Due to its quality and comfort, I recommend the DT-880 for use as studio monitors (in controlled recording situations) and for enjoying high-end recorded material. 5Replaceable ear pads and head band are a nice feature, I just wish the cable was detachable At a higher price point the main thing I look for in headphones is build quality. Sound doesn't mean anything if they're going to break, and parts wear out over time. Beyerdynamic has made a very solid product here. Replaceable ear pads and head band are a nice feature, I just wish the cable was detachable.If I could go back, I'd probably go with the premium version over the pro, simply because the coiled cable is heavy and tends to just hang off my desk like a weight. It's not a huge deal, and arguably, it's cleaner than a long straight cable, but this is the reason I argue for a detachable cable in the first place. Regardless, these are very comfortable, and I'm convinced that nothing else comes close. I could wear these all day without any problems.The sound quality is very good. I listened to DT770 pro's for years, but an obnoxious buzzing in the left ear cup caused me to retire that pair. Those were very good too, but were more bassy. The DT880 is a neutral sounding can. I've tried other cans over the years, and usually send them back within a day or two, and keep coming back to these. 4Best Phones I've Used I'm a musician and play 5 string electric bass. I live in an apartment building so obviously I need some very good headphones for practicing. I had a set of of Sony MDR-7505's for many years that were my go-to phones and handled my extreme headphone needs quite well. They finally got so worn out I had to look for something new.Sony's line and quality seem to have changed however, so I went shopping and came upon these phones: Far away the best sounding and most comfortable wearing phones I've ever used - next best thing to sitting in a studio playing through speakers. Obviously I stress the bass end to the max when I practice and I also mix in other audio sources, sometimes at high volume, but these phones are up to it all - never distort or rumble. Sound is clean and pure all the way through the spectrum. The semi open design helps for that and also makes them a lot more comfortable than high compression closed phones glued to your ears for long periods of time, such as a practice session.Note that these are high impedance phones - I drive them with a 75 watt bass amplifier so for me it's not an issue, but your portable MP3 player or phone will not drive them well at all - volume will be severely limited. 5
