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!

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.

I'm using my DT-205/80's for mixing and casual music listening.

Pros:
Sound quality - detailed and accurate representation. The build quality is great too, I could throw these in my backpack for everyday carry and haven no issues.

Cons:
Comfort. This might be a personal issue as the ear cups are a tad too small for my ears. They cover my ears alright, but the edges of the ear cups are touching my ears, which makes long sessions uncomfortable.

All in all, a great pair of headphones for studio work, but large eared individuals might prefer bigger cups.

Sound great and very comfortable
Christopher4780, 11.11.2014
These headphones have served me well for a number of years now. They have survived being packed in my flight cases and travelling around well. I much prefer the plush earpads to the leatherette ones on a DT100 although they do collect dust and hairs a little easier. I also prefer the sound quality to the DT100 - they've got a much more accurate and less coloured reproduction.
The coily lead is very useful at front of house in a live situation - it doesn't trip you over in the same way that a straight lead would. Also the screw on jack adapter is very useful, though I wish there was somewhere to retain the adapter when it's not in use.
The impedance is useful - these headphones are usable with both professional and domestic equipment.
