Circumaural Studio Headphones!

The Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro headphones are an outstanding choice for extended listening sessions, monitoring while recording drums or amplified instruments, or for general-purpose stereo listening! The DT 880 Pro headphones' semi-open design gives you the strengths of both open and closed headphones. You'll have just enough "air" when tracking instruments while still having the isolation you want when using open microphones. What's more, you'll find that the lushly padded headband makes the Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro headphones extra-comfortable for extended use.

Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro Headphones at a Glance:
  • The best of closed and open designs
  • Exceptional frequency response and stereo separation
  • Comfort assurance for long sessions

The best of closed and open designs
The DT 880 Pro combines the strengths of open and closed headphones. Semi-open headphones solve the "I can't hear myself" problems often associated with recording drums or amplified instruments using closed headphones. Your players will hear an ideal combination of live sound plus monitor source from the DT 880 Pro, with minimal leakage.

Exceptional frequency response and stereo separation
The DT 880 Pro reproduces an amazing 5Hz-35kHz sound spectrum with clean, clear detail from the deepest bass to the highest highs. The highs are crystal-clear without being unpleasant and are impressive even at low levels. The neutral balanced mids are analytical and strong, without being predominant. The DT 880 Pro's bass is voluminous without being too obtrusive. These headphones will inspire you!

Comfort assurance for long sessions
You'll appreciate the DT 880 Pro's high comfort, thanks to its reduced headband pressure and a soft headband pad. The soft earpads and headband pad can be easily replaced. The single-sided, coiled cable is fitted with a gold vaporized 1/8" stereo jack plug and 1/4" adapter. The headphone comes in a stylish leather pouch that keeps your headphone safe from dust and dirt. The DT 880 Pro is a serious contender for recording, mixing, and pleasure!

dt 880 pro much better than my beats studio and solo

Got these for checking when mixing and im very happy.Very natural sound. Much better than my beats by dre head phones (studios and solo) Using straight off the mbox 2 without amp and still sounds pretty loud.

FOR SERIOUS MIXING

THESE CANS ARE COMFORTABLE AND NEVER CAUSE AND TYPE OF EAR FATIGUE. I OWN KRK ROCKIT MONITORS AND THE KRK SUB, AND I CAN HONESTLY MIX AN ENTIRE SONG WITH JUST THESE. THEY GIVE A REALLY OPEN SOUND LIKE MONITORS BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT CLOSED HEADPHONES. I RECOMMEND THESE FOR SERIOUS MIXING AND MASTERING. VERY FLAT SIGNAL, THEY PUT OUT WHATS GOING IN. THEY'RE ABLE TO PUT OUT THE LOWEST BASS NOTES WITH EASE. I MIX WITH THE KRK MONITORS, BUT I PUT THESE ON WHEN I NEED TO GET DETAILED, INTIMATE, AND VERY DISCERNING WITH THE MIX. I WILL ALWAYS KEEP A PAIR.

Awesome clarity

I owned a pair of DT770s which had excellent sound reproduction, but these 880s are another level entirely. I now hear even the most subtle nuances with crystal clarity, which is the purpose of monitor headphones. They hide nothing and forgive nothing, so woe be any barely adequate mix--including more than a few commercial releases. Although extremely comfortable to wear for extended periods, they are not designed for "easy listening" any more than a surgeon's scalpel is designed for carving a Thanksgiving turkey. Between my mono Avantone and stereo nearfield monitors, I feel like I have all the tools I need to hear precisely what I'm doing when mixing. Well worth the price.

The sound is amazing

As The owner of sennheisers, fostex t20 and t40s, AKGs and KRK KNS 8400 I can confidently say that the Beyerdynamics DT 880 Pro I got recently are great!! When you look at the frequency response and hear it for yourself you will ask why didn't I have these headphones before. The comfort is great. Very comfortable and I use it in conjunction with a focusrite VRM Box to mix. The clarity is mindblowing! What got me was a Take 6 song I listened to on the KRKs always had the lead vocalist sounding overly compressed. With these cans the sound is so natural and I heard no over compression. Just nice open sound. NOthing can hide in these cans. Everything is revealed! Spend the money and get a pair. You'll soon realise like me that you want a backup pair in case of anything. I can't mix without them.
