Great headphones for the price!
SnakeHelah, 23.04.2020
I absolutely love these since switching from a typical gaming headset worth around 100~eu.

The build quality is sturdy, german quality, so it is definitely built to last you a lifetime - although some parts are still plastic, the base of the headphone is metal. Surprisingly, these are very light headphones as well.

Of course, the PRO version does come with a curled cable and has a bit of a higher clamp force on your head, so you should keep this in mind too.

Regarding the sound... these headphones definitely have their own fingerprint, and you can hear this very well if you use software like Sonarworks reference. It is by no means a bad sound, but keep this in mind, as you can even clearly see the tone of the headphones via their frequency spectrum. It has a bit of a bass cut and there are a few spikes in the mid-high region.

Other than that, this is to be expected at such a price range and you will definitely be able to differentiate many new sound details in songs and mixes when using these, compared to non-studio type headphones. I was surprised at how much I started to notice.

All in all, these will be a great and relatively cheap upgrade if you are using non-studio or non professional audio headphones. I use these for pretty much everything - gaming, watching movies, mixing, playing guitar, simply listening to music - it does it all much better than your typical gaming headphones which, to be fair, cost around the same as these.

And all this runs on my scarlett 2i4. If anyone is wondering if you need a pre-amp when running an interface - that is definitely not a must. You would need to crank the volume a bit higher, and in the long run I may just opt to try for it if that would give me more headroom in the volume control, but I can say with confidence it is not a must to enjoy these headphones.

I recommend them if you are looking for a cheap pro-audio headphone with great clarity and awesome soundstage. Cheers!

what a waste of time
papa.alfredo, 13.07.2020
I will not write so long, just my short experience with the DT880 Pro Black Edition.

For the 170 Euro paid, this headset is really very bad, I could not say the same about them if I pay 50 Euros, but for 169 Euros, this is a waste of time and money.

First. Tragekomfort. Really terrible. It is a hard headset, no flexibility built to feel good with it. It presses hard to your head, it does not disturb the ear but the head as a whole. The cable is really terrible. It is fixed with the headset, you can not change it in case it breaks. It is a telephone type of cable, very disturbing if you have hair in your body, it pulls it and it pulls the sound interface if you use it from 2 meters away from the audio interface. The metal that holds the caps or cans are like a knife, too thin made which makes it feel like you are holding a knife by the edges! Well, nothing is positive from my perspective about the confort of these cans. JUST TERRIBLE BAD MADE!

Sound: Come on guys! This is a joke! Many people after paying so much feel forced to write a possitive review about a product that does not worth it! This is one of the worst hedsets I have ever heard. I must say that I am into music production for more than 40 years and I have had many cans in my long experience. These cans are simply a JOKE. They sound muddy, they color the sound, they are dark sounding, very colored sound, very confusing sound image, there is nothing that I can say nice about this can!

If I start listening my mixes with the DT880 Pro and then I chance to my Presonus HD7, I really wish to stop working for the day. It is like day and night. The presonus HD7 for only 39 Euros sounds a lot better and a lot linear than a 170 Euro Headset. How is that possible? How come does this happens?

IMPORTANT. I own an old Fostex 7-h which are not any more found where ever you look. How come this old set of can are much clearer and more defined one with much more clarity?.

But, I was chocked for having compared with my Presonus HD7, these cans for only 39 Euro beats easily this DT880. More clarity and really very linear. It is not possible that I pay a lot of money to get something sounding worse than my Presonus HD7, that must not be able to happen, but, it happened to me. I learned a great lesson this time, dont go with the idea that what costs more is better, you can make the same mistake as myself.

I am sending back these cans to Thomann and will be considering to get the AT40X or the Fostex RP50 Mark3. Maybe the AKG 712Pro .

I am done with Beyerdynamic. WHAT A WASTE !!!!!

don't buy from anywhere else
wzxcx, 30.03.2020
for the headphones: one of the best in the market considering it's price. but the reason I'm leaving this feedback is the quality of customer service. I've bought a dozen of equipment from this company. even though I had problems with the gear(only one of them), customer service was pretty quick and they did the best they could. they've fixed the problem without any delay. there was a problem with the input jack, I sent it back and they took action as soon as they received the product. I'm so glad that I've bought it from thomann. highly recommended

Only head you'll ever need
PMłynarczyk, 27.07.2020
This are the best headphone i owned so far. Some pros and cons

- Sound, OMG if you have a good DAC/AMP this will be a gods. Clean, good seperation, not super birght(like dt990pro), but bright, which is pros for me.
- Semi-Open, good middle-ground between closed and open.
- Bass, its not overwhelming like in dt990pro(i sold those because of that) but it's their and its very detailed. I feel at home with this bass.
- Stage/Positioning, very good.
- Confort, when you get use to clamping power they will disapear
- Serviceble, you can take them apart and repair on your own, and service parts are very easily accessible.

I haven't founded any cons so far...but if you are picky
- Coiled cable...i personally prefer straight...
- Cable it not detachable aswell, but its very sturdy so it shouldn't be a problem, it won't brake.
