Bright, balanced sound that brings smiles...how I expected the DT 990 to sound! [EDIT-June 13, 2020]
After owning the DT 990 Pro 250 for a year, I decided to get these to compare and obviously keep. While I read that the DT 880 are light on bass, according to my ears, they're only light on impact. The bass is there, ALL OF IT, but it's not felt...doesn't fill the ears like the DT 990 Pro. So by result, the bass is more detailed and nuanced. The trade-off is worth it. The DT 880 600 ohm are what my ears expected of the DT 990, which has too much treble for my liking. My Schiit Asgard 2 rounds off that treble nicely, though. The DT 880 are BRIGHT on their own. If you have heard them and consider them too piercing, the DT 990 are DT 880s on steroids. The bass is big and also the highs...while the midrange is thinner. That is what I like about the DT 880...that they are as revealing as the DT 990 but without sounding so thin in the middle. They're flatter, while the DT 990 sound V-shaped. Lots of people say the DT 880 are the boring ones and the DT 990 are the fun ones. While I get what they mean by that, I don't consider the DT 880 boring at all. They're flatter-sounding, but they do not sound...flat. They're way livelier and more intense than a lot of headphones. If you want to experience truly boring headphones, try the super flat and revealing Senal SMH-1200. Those make any music sound boring and lifeless with their empty, dry sound signature...but are awesome as audio loupes. Anyway, I agree with beyerdynamic's descriptions: the DT 880 are for reference monitoring and the DT 990 are for critical listening and mastering. Having music production as a hobby since 2002, it makes sense to me and their sound signatures are the proof. Oh, I wanted to mention that good conversion/amplification gets rid of the "metallic tone" and sibilance of beyerdynamic headphones. It's been established that the Sennheiser HD 650/6XX scale up with gear, and they do scale up, but so do these, and more noticeably. The better the equipment and the more power, the better they sound. Thanks for reading. God bless you! [EDIT-June 13, 2020] I like to read reviews, sure, but ultimately, I trust my own ears/brain. I completely disregard what other ears/brains hear. What use are they to me, right? I've been comparing these with my beyerdynamic T90 Jubilee using the beastly Tascam UH-7000 and the original Schiit Asgard, which sounds great. The DT 880 are less exciting in terms of energy, since the sound is not so "in-your-face", but there is something about the DT 880's presentation that I like more. They sound more "out of the head", "wider" side to side and more "layered" from foreground to background. The DT 880 are just more balanced from lows to highs frequency and energy-wise, as if they had a transparent compressor. Weirdly, to my surprise, they also translate more emotion, even if they are reference headphones and not Hi-Fi headphones like the T90. Those I admit are more musical-sounding, BUT, musicality and musical emotion are two different things in my book. The sound stage on the DT 880 is not so "zoomed-in" like in the T90, so they don't sound as full, but that "distance" in the sound presentation makes the DT 880 transmit something that the T90 lack. The DT 880 sound more "lonely" and not as ear-filling, which is something that kills a lot of headphones for me, but somehow, I precisely like that about them. It might seem like an undesirable trait, but I am sure that, regardless of experience level, trained ear or not, anyone could understand what I mean if they were to compare both side by side. The DT 880 simply affect me more emotionally even if the T90 are the obvious winners in the technical performance department. Is this preference of mine due to the DT 880's design PLUS the drivers having way higher impedance and requiring more juice from the amp, which results in the drivers behaving differently in a way above my knowledge level? I have no clue. All I know is I somehow feel some kind of relief taking off the T90 and wearing the DT 880 even if they sound "smaller", more "distant" and less ear-filling. I can wear the T90 and go, "Wow, these sound incredible". Then I take them off, wear the DT 880 and go, "Aaaaah, I SO missed this...whatever THIS is." The T90 are tonally clearer, but the DT 880's overall sound presentation is clearer, as if filtered. They are very, very different headphones. The T90 sound better technically, but the DT 880 emotionally take me to a better place. Ever since I got the DT 880, I've been saying to myself that they are special. It just took me a long while to figure out what it was. Yeah, the DT 990 are no slouches, but they don't transmit the emotion that the DT 880 do. The DT 880 simply touch my feelings in a unique way. Just wanted to share this with you guys!

Accurate
I am a musician and producer/engineer. I got these mainly to use for editing and programming as well as a mixing reference. They are extremely comfortable as I often do hours of editing...headphones allow you to hear consistently without keeping your head in one position. These make bad edits very easy to hear as well. The clarity of these headphones makes bright distortion and over-limiting very obvious. Same goes for low frequencies....you can hear overloads and you can hear separation between low instruments like bass and drums for instance. A lot of negative reviews are from people that don't understand impedance matching and are used to bass-heavy cans. I hope mine don't BREAK though :)

My Favorite Beyers!
Let me start off by saying I’m a huge beyer fan. I’ve owned every version of the DT880 (250,600 and now 32 ohm). In addition I have a DT770/80, Amiron Home, DT1990 and A20 amp. The DT880/32 is probably my favorite. Their presentation is almost electrostatic in the highs - super light, airy and not harsh at all. The bass is very deep but on the accurate side rather than being boosted, which I also prefer. Then the mids. Oh the mids. They’re dry, but beautiful. I’ve never heard a headphone that I’ve personally enjoyed as much as this one. This particular one. The 32. It sounds nearly identical to the 250 and 600... but I can run it off my iPhone. That’s a huge plus. The sound improves slightly with the amp - but man it’s negligible and if I didn’t have it to compare directly, I wouldn’t miss it. I love headphones that I don’t have to use a bunch of equipment to make them sound good - and these fit that bill. Boy, do they ever. Just buy them already.

Are you kidding !!!!!
This kind of sound for this kind of price ?! Are you kidding !!!! A lot has been said and written about these cans but the fact is that it may be the best offer there is for analytical, precise and neutral sound. What that exactly is, is indeed a long story, but let me say that you will hear things with these that you probably never heard before. First of all, my set-up is an Audeze Deckard Class A headphone amplifier (I believe it’s 4W class A), which obviously is more than sufficient to drive the 600 ohm versión that I have. I actually have two pairs of cans and yes, the amp drives them both at insanely high levels at the same time with a cable splitter ! The comfort can probably not get a lot better. I use them for movies late in the evening, and after two hours or so, they’re still very comfortable, soft, right pressure, not hot at all. The built quality is sincerely 4/5. You don’t get a remarkable headphone for this price, but that said it is solid, nice metal work, all in all very very good at this price point. Yes. Metal. Wow. And the sound.... we all hear different, but what you should be able to hear is... detail. This baby will separate details, keep the mids and low end tight, and that’s already incredible at this price. Most people seem to worry about if it sounds shrill or the bass is “missing”. I’d say that you should check what recording material you’re listening to. People tend to forget that there are so many poorly recorded albums out there and these cans with tell you exactly that. So detailed, so revealing. Initially I found the low end lacking in “punch” but after experimenting endlessly with different music material and EQ settings, well, the conclusion is that the low end is there, in fact, it’s all there, just in a very controlled way. Difficult to explain, but let’s say “neutral” for lack of a better word. Very studio-like. In fact, I own Yamaha HS8 studio monitors and sub, so I do appreciate neutral sound. So, who should buy these ? First of all, if you don’t have an amp, stick to the 30 and 250 ohm versions. The 600 ohm NEEDS an amp, period, otherwise you’ll not be able to have a decent sound level and the control over the cans that you need. These cans are for serious music lovers who don’t mind being served the truth instead of soup. While you may be disappointed in discovering that certain music that you previously thought sounded all right suddenly sounds so-so, the real reward is discovering so many new things while listening. With good recording material, you will be amazed to hear the vocals, the instruments. Sound stage is so-so, but I think we have to be fair and not compare these cans with 5-10 times more expensive ones. My favorite music for these are jazz, classical, lounge, blues recordings and watching a movie with these with blow your mind ! I do listen to a fair share of electronic / house music which sounds great, but don’t expect the kick you get out of that with a solid pair of speakers - but that’s merely the nature of that kind of music. These are half-open headphones, so you will have to avoid noisy environments, plus it’s possible to hear what’s playing even if you’re sitting a fair bit of distance away. On the plus side, which I like, you can hear what’s going on in the world outside, e.g. if someone’s talking to you. Fantastic cans for an unbelievable low price.
