Great Headphones (but also check the DT-770s)
sarcobe, 03.12.2019
I bought these headphones as a replacement for a DT-770 Pro. I really like the latter, but after using DT-770s for 7 years, I wanted to try something different.

Pros:
- The headphones are not too bulky and rather lightweight.
- The cable is replaceable! (This is important for me, as this is always the first thing to break)
- The sound is excellent! I would describe it as balanced, not as bass-heavy as the DT-770.

Cons:
- The DT-250 are still comfortable to wear, but I could wear the DT-770s for a longer period of time without feeling any strain.
- I don't like the curly cable, it gets in the way when e.g. playing guitar.
- The replaceable cable uses a proprietary connector on the headphone side.
- Isolation is not that good. For monitoring usage when recording drums, I would still prefer the DT-770s.

To summarize: overall I like these headphones, but the DT-770s are available for the same price (or less). In my opinion: buy the DT-250 if you don't like bulky headphones or prefer a more neutral sound-stage. If not: just buy the DT-770s!

Yes, it's plastic.

Yes, it's plastic.

It means lightness.
Plastic noise? No, it's solidly built. It's quiet.

These inform us that they are useful for long-term recording.

If your head is as big as ET, it's hard to operate.
But if you're an Earthman, you'd love this product.

It is possible that Reptilians is the one who is reluctant to use this product.

No nonsense sound pleasure
jwojwo, 05.08.2020
These are my second pair. I've had the first pair for 15 years, and finally the cable broke after commuting to work for 5 years. Now I have the first pair at work with a new cable, and the new pair is used in my studio.

Sound quality is detailed without becoming tiresome after 8hour use. Honest and dynamic sound where it is easy to hear nuances in what you play. Also, a good recording will be recognized, as well as a lesser one. However, the bad one is not unlistenable.
I really don't have any complaints. Just enjoying the music!

Comparing the new pair with the used one, there is perhaps a little bit crisper sound in the new pair, but the overall character is the same. What else can you keep using after 15 years nowadays?

The construction is very clever, with replaceable parts, and easy change of plug size with the provided adapter.

Industry standard
Trev, 21.05.2015
This is my second pair of DT-250s. The first pair were kept by an artist I work with after 'borrowing' them for rehearsals! He preferred them over his in-ears for live monitoring and he's known for his perfectionism.
I use them for everything in the studio as well as for live sound. They translate well and provide good isolation but they don't flatter the sound at all which I like.
They are over ear fit and closed back which I prefer, additional isolation can be achieved by pressing them onto the ears.
Confort is good and the fabric ear pads are better than vinyl types for prolonged use.
The build quality is sturdy so they travel well on my international touring work either with the flight cases or in my backpack.
I expect long service from my DT-250s and will probably buy more for studio clients to replace my DT-100s.
