A 170¤ no-brainer for people who like a a well balanced headphone
tonimor, 25.08.2017
I own this headphone for 3 years now.
The sound is well-balanced and crystal clear (although it has the typical Beyerdynamic High-Peak around 8-10 KHz which ). For some (very few) bad mixed tracks it could be a problem, but that happens very rarely. I want to admit, that this headphone is nothing for "bass-lovers". But with an appropriate EQ setting that should't be a problem if one want's to hear some more bassy tracks from time to time.

The offered comfort is the best I know and I already tested several AKGs and Sennheisers over the time. You won't even notice the headphone after a short time and can wear it easily for some hours in a row.

The quality overall is very good, although I don't like the plastic slider and the snapping sounds it makes when you twist the speakers a bit. The Beyerdynamic support insured that this is normal and intended. Also I find the edges of the metal "system bows" as too sharp, but that's just a little complain.
Beyerdynamic ensures you will get spare parts even decades after the product was released and they offer any part for replacement, which is very good.

Now that the price dropped from >220¤ to 170¤, I think this is one of the best headphones on the market for people who like a balanced sound and a very, very comfortable headphone.

Excellent upgrade for mixing
Vinnie R., 24.03.2020
Prior to purchasing these cans, I had been using the closed back Beyerdynamic DT770s as my main choice of monitoring which I got to know quite well over time and came to consider a good option for low volume mixing.

In the end I did decide to extend my arsenal with something more widely regarded as mixing friendly headphones and oh my, these are a serious upgrade compared to the 770s.

Stock like all Beyerdynamics these have a fair amount of top end boost, but what makes these so good is how linear they are in the mid range to low end region.

In combination with Sonarworks I feel like I can finally trust what I'm hearing and the constant second guessing is a thing of the past.

Amazing quality for the price.
18.06.2016
I bought these DT-880s for critical listening at home and they go beyond what I expected for headphones on this price range.

The construction quality is very good and the 880s are very comfortable for long listening sessions, so much that sometimes I forget that I'm using headphones.
I use glasses and had no problem with the sealing around the ear, the pads mold easily to the shape of the head.

The sound quality is very detailed for this price range but don't expect a lot of bass. These headphones can be driven to average sound levels on most decent portable players but they need some power to show their true quality.
As a semi-open design I don't notice too much sound leaking outside at moderate sound levels.
The sound isolation of the 880s is not very good, thus my advise is not using them on noisy places.

I don't have anything bad to say about these headphones for home use.

Milan R., 10.05.2018
These headphones are amazing! I've got them for a while now and they are just outstanding. I use them to create music and sound effects for games.

PROS:
- Crystal clear and balanced sound.
- Honest representation of low, mid and high frequencies.
- Marvelous frequency range.
- Astonishing comfort.
- Premium feel and looks.
- Great build quality.

CONS:
- If the cable breaks, you can't replace it yourself but have to send it to the manufacturer to get it replaced. Though, that definitely didn't stop me from buying this product.
- For a semi-open pair of headphones, they let more sound through than I first expected, but that doesn't bother me at all. Though, I can imagine you wouldn't want to use these at locations that are very noisy.

In short: For this price, this is --without doubt-- the best pair of headphones you can get.
