My go to for nearly 10 years.

I listen to lots of music every day. I edit a podcast and I mess around with a monophonic synthesizer from time to time. These things are on my head every day. I got these as my first pair of "serious" headphones after the obligatory Audio Technicas I'd been using before. Back in probably 2012, I we...

I really like the "Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro" They have a little shift in the 7k-8k Range. But they are really precise and in my opinion really good.

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...

Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro Review

Beyerdynamic's DT 880 Pro headphones do very little sculpting, manage to provide strong bass depth without inventing lows where they don't exist, and provide excellent clarity throughout the frequency range. For $220, they're a worthwhile investment worthy of our Editors' Choice. The Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro headphones deliver an accurate, powerful listening experience intended for musicians, sound engineers, and music lovers with stereo systems

sennheiser hd 600; lots of attention

beyerdynamic dt 880; not enough attention


Amazing 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 enj...

Beyerdynamic DT 880

The DT 880 are good critical listening headphones with a well-balanced and open sound. They have a durable build, and they're decently comfortable, but they're a bit cumbersome to carry around without a bag. Also, their semi-open design doesn't block ambient noise, leaks a lot and isn't really intended for any other use case except critical listening in an isolated environment.

Beyerdynamic DT 880 headphone is a must try for me for their "depressing" sound signature and spectacular mids.

Takstar Pro 82 because of its extreme comfort.

Any Audio Technica AD because of their vocal performance.

Comfort and great sound

These are excellent semi-open back headphones with amazingly neutral audio. The comfort level is beyond anything I’ve used before. As they are semi-open noise cancellation is not their purpose. For that choose the beyerdynamic DT - 770 closed back. Similarly, for mixing choose the DT-990 open back m...

Beyerdynamic DT 880 Review - Competitive in 2020? This is NOT the 600 ohm version

So in conclusion, is the dt880 worth it. Well again, i don't think this is a headphone that sounds bad. It sounds okay, it's just that it doesn't sound as good as the hd650 or hd600 or hd560s from sennheiser and out of those the hd560s and 650 now ht6xx are available for around the same price as the dt880 and at that price
