Premium Stereo Headphone 32 Ohms

If anything of the legendary DT 880 could have been improved, it has been realised with this version. This top headphone combines the strengths of open and closed headphones. The complete sound spectrum is reproduced in detail from the deepest sub bass to the highest highs. This semi-open, dynamic headphone is also manufactured in Germany.

The present version with 32 Ohms is suitable for the use with portable playback devices, but equally with hi-fi systems, with television or with purpose-built headphone amplifiers.

  • Very linear sound
  • Excellent sound location
  • Ambient sound is attenuated, but can be still perceived (semi-open design)

    DT 880: Legendary top model

    Title:  Beyer’s old school
    Author: Tom Frantzen

    Translated from the original German article

    [...]

    When beyerdynamic launched their legendary DT 880 top model in 1980/81 it was like a small landslide.

    [...]

    The best working tool of the old school was and is the neutral DT 880. The same refers to musical enjoyment, at least when you do without effects and allow for long listening sessions.

    [...]

    The new DT 880, however, with the same name since 2003, is from its appearance a completely different headphone. Almost 100 grams heavier, equipped with noble and high-quality aluminium parts. Compared to its predecessor, it is technically rather light and haptic according to beyerdynamic – that is heavily revised.

    [...]

    The author to these lines wrote in the June issue of Stereo in 2003: “Remoulded headphone classic with a very excellent sound” and “a captivating natural, lively and powerful sound.”
    The pressure is slightly higher, but is reduced by the better and pleasant pads. The sound of the DT 880 is therefore a little bit mature, the bass is more powerful, more sonorous in total, but still transparent.

    Translated from the original German article

    [...]

    For large auditoriums there are customised microphone concepts, for individual ears unique headphone are manufactured. The lot size of one becomes a core message at the company’s headquarters in Heilbronn. On their website beyerdynamic provide a headphone configurator, like the car industry, for the DT 880 and DT 990 over-ear headphones. Which colour, which leather, perhaps a plate with your name? This is a good sign: The individuality costs only a little more than the standard model; at best a modest waiting time of two weeks.

    Translated from the original German test report

    [...]

    Beyerdynamic has found the happy medium. The DT 880 is so-to-speak the fairest of all tested headphones. Each instrument has its chance, each frequency range is equal, each sound has its individual performance. The balanced sound allows a relaxed experience of listening. The typical beyerdynamic effect: the headphone does not neglect the deep sounds, but emphasises them when it is necessary. You listen more intense, the headphone seems to conduct music.

    [...]

    We did not find the perfect headphone, but with the DT 880 beyerdynamic is damned close: Fantastic sound, high level of comfort and precious workmanship.

    Spectacular reproduction of bass and treble

    Translated from the original German article

    The classic dynamic headphone. The plush pads appease the rather high headband pressure and the live weight of 350 grams.  It sounds brilliant and always harmoniously – a headphone with a spectacular bass and treble response, which, however, never sounds intrusively or coloured.  

    [...]

    Price/performance: Excellent!
