The DT 880 combines the strengths of open and closed studio headphones. The improved systems of the legendary DT 880 now offer a high quality headphone with excellent analytical properties, especially for classical music. The DT 880 reproduces an amazing sound spectrum, with clean, clear detail from the deepest bass to the highest highs. The highs are crystal-clear without being unpleasant, impressive even at low levels. The neutral balanced mids are analytical and strong, without being predominant.
 
The DT 880’s bass is voluminous without being too obtrusive. The single-sided cable, the soft ear pads and the padded headband make the DT 880 extra-comfortable for extended listening sessions. The DT 880 is still manufactured in Germany, providing an excellent quality.

Features

THE CLASSIC AMONG HI-FI HEADPHONES

Music lovers delight in its natural, vibrant sound as well as its excellent spacious reproduction.

The semi-open headphones attenuate ambient noise, but do not exclude it completely, and thus convey a harmonious sound experience. These headphones have been part of the beyerdynamic portfolio for 20 years and still enjoy exceptional popularity. All components are available as replacement parts, making the DT 880 Edition a reliable companion for many years to come..

CONCERT ATMOSPHERE AT HOME

The DT 880 Edition sounds very neutral and relaxed. The bass reproduction penetrates very deeply, but is not overstated. This feature is particularly appealing to lovers of jazz and classical music because it gives the headphones a really transparent sound and makes the individual components of the music clearly audible. Thanks to its semi-open design, the DT 880 Edition allows some ambient noise to penetrate and escape, but attenuates it somewhat stronger than in the case of a fully open headphone such as the DT 990 Edition.

EXCELLENT WEARING COMFORT

The over-ear headphones are very light for their size and ensure a pleasant fit thanks to their carefully selected materials. The soft ear pads are made from breathable and skin-friendly velour, effectively keeping any build-up of heat away from your ears and allowing you to enjoy music for hours. The combination of comfortable headband and robust yokes made from aluminium ensure a comfortable fit and an excellent stability. 

DIFFERENCE COMPARED TO DT 880 PRO

The DT 880 Edition is identical to the DT 880 PRO when it comes to sound. That's because we use similarly designed acoustic transducers for both headphones. However, the Edition models have a somewhat softer headband for enjoying music at home with maximum comfort while our PRO headset has a slightly tighter fit on the head so that it doesn't move even in everyday studio use. Moreover, the Edition version is supplied with a straight cable and the PRO version with a coiled cable.

 

32 OHMS

250 OHMS

600 OHMS

Models with an impedance of 32 ohms are extremely versatile and are also ideal for use on mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets for example.

The 250-Ohm headphones were developed primarily for use at home on a stereo system.


The 600-Ohm version gets the best out of hi-fi systems with especially powerful headphone outputs or special headphone amplifiers.
