Product Description
While most cans make you choose between an open and closed construction, the Beyerdynamic DT880 splits the difference with a semi-open design that allows for increased airflow and a wider soundstage. As it covers the entire frequency range without difficulty, it's ideal for all types of music and most impressive with dense electronic jams ... Read More

These are hellishly bright and unlistenable.

Dang it... was looking to buy my first quality cans... This DT880, HD 6XX, or the 58X.... I listen to all types of music also will want to do some mixing later on too. What would be the best out of these? TIA

Am I the only one received the "special edition" as oppose to "limited edition" per printing on the box?

I just paid more for these (the 250 ohm)on Amazon not too long ago. I love these headphones ! I was able to compare the 990's (too bright) , 770's (too thumpy, small soundstage) and the Senn HD6xx (too dull)--- and these won out for "me". Sure--the closed back 770's had a little more bass response/reflex, but I found myself gravitating the these more often and once I quit the annoying side-by-side comparisons, I found these to be the most enjoyable for overall listening. The soundstage is just right and the bass response is tight and not overemphasized (and I have tone controls if I "need" more thump). I'm running these through a home stereo Adcom GFP555 mkII preamp---- and sounds great !

Could I bother anyone with the measurements for the inner part of the pads? I have really big ears and it's a drag looking for high-quality headphones that do not hurt my ears and give me listening fatigue. Note: I am currently using Audio Technica ATH-AD700x with these earpads: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078HDVCN2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Thank you in advance. =)

Excellent headphones. I got them for $5 less just through the regular Amazon price quite recently. How is this a sale?

I got these at 160 a few weeks back. As of this post they’re still available at that price. I see the “limited” version is 199. What’s the difference? They both seem to be the Premium model.

Hi all, can you enlighten me: for the Massdrop amps (CTH, LCX, THX), will 600 or 250 ohms work better?

Thanks. Coz I have the THX and CTH already, so I just wonder whether they can drive 600 ohms.

The 250ohm takes about 2.5Vrms to achieve 110 dB loudness. The 600ohm takes about 3.9Vrms to achieve 110 dB loudness. http://www.digizoid.com/headphones-power.html (headphones are 96 dB/mW I believe) The THX can push something close to 8.0 Vrms (single ended) - specs show 100mW into 600ohms -> that would get you 116 dB sound pressure level for these headphones, which is probably way way louder than you'd ever want it. Other notes: I often use a digital EQ with a -6 dB pre-amp setting so I can boost the bass on some reference headphones (which cuts my max voltage in half -> over simplifying you can think the -6dB pre-amp reduces the max 8 Vrms down to 4 Vrms but amps do have "gain" to get that signal level back) . What I'm trying to say is that there should be plenty of spare voltage in the THX on paper but circumstances may significantly reduce how loud it gets. edit: (another circumstance) Many DAC's output up to 2 Vrms. A gain of 3 gets you to 6 Vrms (which below the THX's potential of 8). The 250 ohm version will behave really similar (in terms of loudness at the tested frequency) to Senn's HD 650. The 600 ohm version needs merely 1.56x (3.9 Vrms / 2.5Vrms) the voltage to reach the same loudness (it's just how this math works out - not really intuitive if one is just comparing the impedance (600/250 = 2.4). So the 600 vs 250 is not massively more difficult to drive. If Senn's HD 650 is effortlessly driven you shouldn't have to worry about DT880 600 ohm not being able to be driven. It should be mentioned I don't have a 789 (probably will attempt to get one in the following year) nor do I have the DT880 600ohm. I just understand the math and was bored. Hope that helps your decision.

I have both the DT880 and 58X jubilees. I think to myself I like the 58X more yet find myself using the DT880s more?? I'm not an audiophile but find the separation (I think) to be more pleasing. They make the soundstage on the Sennheisers seem claustrophobic by comparison

HD 58X - dull sounding DT 880 - bright and artificial sounding neither are neutral buy the HD 6XX instead
