    DT 880/DT 990: Headphones for your ears only

    Title: Plenty of individuality
    Author: Andreas Günther

    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.

    Spectacular Sound

    Translated from the original German article

    It is comfortable when wearing and it sits right without creating any pressure. The sound is really spectacular with powerful highs and a crispy bass. It is never too intrusive, but it is also not very light. A wonderful reproduction of vocals. 
    Price/performance: Very good
