Description

The up-side to this is a wonderfully airy presentation that does wonders to the soundstage, in both depth and width. Reference notes will always be in italics, and are included in the Video Reviews and Head Fi review posts. I am comparing some of the best headphones in their respective class, which all sound great in their own right. The 770's were a bit boomy on the bass side of things, nice for electronic music and some rock but not the overall analytical sound i was looking for. Volume issues aside portables faired respectably well in the audio quality department (unlike the AKG 701/2 which was crippled in audio quality, rather than volume - with portables).

The cable is single entry, 3 metres long with a solid rubber coating and terminated in a 1/8 inch jack with a 1/4 inch screw-on adapter. My one regret with the DT880 is that the mids are not a little more to the front of the spectrum, and I would love to see them a little warmer.

The adjustable headband, like most Beyerdynamics from this range, is not the most elegant mechanism but once you have it where you want it there is not much to find fault with.

It's friendly with more equipment than you might think but takes good advantage of high quality sources and amplification to utilise it's full potential (especially true of the 600ohm version). They fit a bit looser on the head when compared to the 990s and will easily fall off if you shake them too much.When compared to HD600, DT880 is clearly inferior in design, one can observe the headbands, wiring connection methods and fixed cable. My difficulty in loving the DT 880 is the high-end, which tends to be unnaturally piercing and sharp.
