Beyerdynamic DT880 Premium review

 

These headphones should be worn with matching silver smoking jacket and slippers. They feel so comfortable, it's as though you're putting your ears to bed. But you're not. Don your smoking jacket for these You are, in fact, treating them to a...

The DT880 Premiums have a variable headband with enough room for everyone but without the vice like grip of professional pairs

These ‘phones are top drawer – they're suave and sophisticated with bags of sonic ability

Beyerdynamic DT880 review

 

Same name, whole new product

Comfortable to wear ; Very neutral sound

Less bassy than most headphones

A straightforward approach that's informative and neutral. Good for occasional and long-term listening alike

Beyerdynamic DT880

 

Beyerdynamic appears to have taken a leaf out of the car industry's book by keeping a product name from years ago, but then completely changing the design. No doubt this will ensure havoc on eBay in years to come...

Made in Germany: Beyerdynamic DT 880 and DT 990 headphones

 

The Beyerdynamic DT 880 Edition and DT 990 Edition headphones are available in different impedance versions. The Audiophiliac listens to them all.

BeyerDynamic DT 880

 

Incredible highs, Wonderful tight bass, Wide Soundstage, Comfortable

May be too neutral for some

On par or better than the top of the line Sennheisers, but at a lower price, the BeyerDynamic DT880s are one of the best amplified headphones you can buy, short of spending $1000 or more.

Review: Beyerdynamic DT 880 Premium

 

The antithesis of today's plastic pieces of head candy, Beyerdynamic's DT 880 is a headphone that harkens back to a time when they were still...

Like a pair of velvet slippers for your ears. These are some of the comfiest cans I’ve ever put on my head. Zero ear fatigue even after epic listening sessions. Classic design cues and quality materials make for one gorgeous, yet tough, headphone....

Just as big and bulky as your dad’s old cans — not the most travel-friendly option. Semi-open design means some sonic leakage, so anyone sitting next to you will be listening to your music, too. Treble can be a bit harsh at times

Beyerdynamic DT 880 review

 

Beyerdynamic DT 880

The Beyerdynamic DT 880 headphones are among the most comfortable on the market, and they come packaged in a gorgeous padded aluminum storage case. The headphones use a standard miniplug connector but include a 1/4-inch adapter and a 15-foot extension...

The DT 880s are expensive, and ill suited for use with the iPod.

The Beyerdynamic DT 880s are extra comforatable and their sound is certainly audiophile level, but stereo imaging isn't as wide open as other top contenders.
