Product Description
While many headphones make you choose between an open- and closed-back construction, the Beyerdynamic DT880 Pro splits the difference with a semi-open design that allows for increased airflow and a wider soundstage. It brings full depth and excitement to the entire range, with a smooth, extended treble; a transparent, detailed midrange; and a punchy, layered bass Read More

Does this drop come with both earpads, “analytical” and “relaxed”?

I think you confuse them with DT1990's. These (DT880 Pro) sound both "analytical" and "relaxed" at the same time (imo) and only need one type of earpads.

Thanks. I was doing a bunch of review surfing and did what you said, mix the DT880s with the 1990.

Sorry for the bad lighting, here is my DT880 pro 600 ohm, I've owned a lot of headphones, many 5x the price and yet I still daily these more than most, if that says something. Very clean and tight sounding HP, especially the 600 ohm which I recommend if you have a good amp. Also if anyone is wondering and shameless self plug of my cables, I did the dual insert mod and made that cable in pic. Drivers are rewired as well with higher quality wire, they sound amazing. For those of you who dropped the black version I'm kind of jealous ;-) enjoy them, please do mod them for detachable, I recommend single entry unless you go for balanced.

Hi Guys, There are some question regarding the lineups of DT880 series and their performances. I'm looking for Headphones for music production, so FLAT one is needed.
  1. Is DT880 Pro more suitable for Monitoring and mixing work, than DT880?
  2. Between Audio-technica's Ath-m70x and DT880 Pro, which one would be nicer for work?

I own both (HD6XX and DT880 pro @250 ohms). HD6XX has a narrower but more accurate soundstage and has slightly lifted midbass, DT880 is more spacious sounding and has a bit more treble (around 8k). If you're young and your ears are still sensitive to treble, HD6XX might be a good choice. If you're over 40 and your ears start to lose sensitivity to high freqencies, you might appreciate the little extra treble from DT880. But differences are not that big imo, both sound reasonably "flat" and you'll be fine with either, regardless of age ;) I don't own the ATH M70x (I do own ATH M50x, HD6XX and DT880 are better for mixing imo), but they're closed back and those usually sound less "flat"/accurate than open backs. ATH R70x might be a better choice, I've heard them for a minute or two at an audio show and they seemed pretty accurate/"flat" at first listen.

The 600 ohms have incredibly uniform phase response, very exceptional for any dynamic. So much of that 600 ohms is pure resistance, it behaves more like a planar than a dynamic. Incredible soundstage accuracy. As for comparisons to the 6xx, that's the wrong Sennheiser, the Beyer is tame by Beyer standards but is still much closer in tuning to the HD800S, here's a comparison of a treble damped 880 (red) compared to an HD800 (blue):

Much closer than HD6xx (blue, orange) compare:

I've been using a pair of DT 880's (600 ohm version) for five years in my studio for tracking, mixing and mastering. I also own a pair of DT 1990's (250 ohm) and DT 990's (250 ohm) that I like very much. All have the same basic sonic signature. The 600 ohm 880's are the most clinical and accurate. They also have minimal clamping force and the widest soundstage of the lot. Treble extension is remarkable which is great for engineers. You can hear what's happening with the hi hats, ride cymbals, and transients. I suppose some users would describe that as "bright," but modern recording and playback gear is capable of squeezing out a lot of information at the extremes, and if you want to hear all of it, most Beyers will oblige. If you desire a more burnished sound, go for some other brand. I'm guessing that the 250 ohm versions are probably a bit more emphatic and less subtle in their delivery, but for less than $200, the 880's are a great deal no matter which version or where you purchase them. A few years back, they went for $269 ($299 for the 600 ohm premiums).

Given its fixed, not the most durable in the world, but the 880 Pro line is coiled. Meaning that it's technically longer than a straight, but has quite a bit of give to it. Just as long as you're not constantly tugging, yanking, or running over it with your chair, it should hold up to moderate use. I would keep it away from floor traffic when not in use however.

dt880 premium chrome edition is $179 on amazon currently, prime. Same 250ohm as the pros.
I’ve had the dt880 pros for many years, and while I remember them starting relatively harsh, they’ve remained my favorite pair of headphones even against higher price point cans.

Hey, I currently own a pair of 6XXs (paired with the Schiit Fulla 2) and I'm simply in love with them. The only issue I have is that when the TV is turned on (beside my setup), I can hear everything playing. Based on personal usage, do any of you think these cans would be a good alternative to swap with my 6XXs when the TV is turned on? Or does the semi-open design not isolate enough? Would love to hear some feedback even though there's roughly 24 hours left on the drop! :)

Too late now :P I joined the drop. Hopefully I won't regret it! Thanks for the suggestions though, I'll look into those when I'm on the market for an new pair of headphones.

770s are what you’re after, great V-Shape and isolation, they’re basically earmuffs that you’d wear at a shooting range, isolation is second to none.
