Great sounding, very comfortable premium headphones

Christopher982, 01.06.2013
Hi

I now have three pairs of quality headphones, the Sennheiser HD650, the AKG K701 and these Beyers. All three look quite attractive despite being very different. The Beyer earcups are bare metal, probably aluminium and look very solid. They are round and slightly smaller than the round AKGs and oval Sennheisers but still fit my quite large ears. These Beyers are the most comfortable of the three as they are light both in terms of their deadweight and clamping pressure.

The cable is a flat 10ft OFC design terminating in a 3.5mm mini jack which is fixed permanently to the left earcup. The cable caused no audible noise when tapped and there is a gold plated adapter included which screws securely over the mini jack to convert to the larger ¼ inch jack size.

I listen to music using a Windows 7 PC and the Foobar 2000 music player. These headphones deserve a decent headphone amp. Initially I was not impressed with the sound of the Beyers as they seemed a little flat and dull and lacking in punch and excitement but this quickly changed. I don't know why this happened - it could be something as simple as increasing the volume as these seem slightly harder to drive than my other headphones.

I now really enjoy the sound of these headphones. In terms of sound signature they are more similar to the AKG than the Sennheiser being punchy, clear and exciting but perhaps lacking a bit of bass weight. The Sennheisers have a much warmer, darker, meaty sound. The Beyers probably have more detail than the AKGs and are more airy in presentation. If you look at graphs of the frequency response of the three models the AKGs have a pretty flat response whereas the Sennheisers have a tilted profile with more emphasis on bass and lower mids. The Beyers have an unusual scooped profile where there is a deliberate dip in the midrange. Apparently hearing is naturally most sensitive in this range and the dip allows more audible detail in the treble region. I can attest that this is indeed happening as I hear details on some recordings that are missing with the other two headphones.

Some reviews say the Beyers have too strong a treble and little bass. I think this comes down to personal taste as I like the tonal balance. I'm also using a very neutral amp, the open source solid state O2 from Epiphany Acoustics, which has plenty of power and a low output impedance which doesn't colour the sound. The headphone I am reviewing is the 250ohm version but they are also manufactured in 32ohm and 600ohm variants. The 32ohm version is designed for portable players and the 600ohm version might be more suited to high output impedance tube amps. There is also a 250ohm Pro version with a curly cord rather than a flat cable which some might prefer.

The only problem I have had was with the slider mechanism. The cups adjust on a slider and are supposed to click firmly into place. However the left cup was too loose and would not hold its position well. It became annoying to constantly have to check and reposition the cup prior to listening. Beyerdynamic themselves are sending me a replacement part to fix this. I bought these as B stock so I have only reduced the score by one star in regard to this quality issue.

Overall I think the Beyer DT880 is a great sounding headphone and I would heartily recommend it. I now have three pairs of headphones and I like all three and appreciate the sound differences each offers. If pushed to recommend one of the three I would say the Beyer. This is not because it is obviously superior to the others but the Sennheiser is more of an acquired taste which some may not like and while the sound signature of both the Beyer and AKG seem very neutral and natural to me the Beyer is more detailed and more comfortable when worn for long periods. The Beyers are great all rounders with no obvious flaws. As long as the source material is fairly well recorded these headphones sound good.

Hope this helps

Christopher

Beyerdynamic DT-880 Edition 2005 vs. DT-990 Pro vs. AKG K-701

Bernhard aus W., 29.10.2009
Ich hatte die Gelegenheit, oben genannte Kopfhörer ausgiebig miteinander zu vergleichen. Der nachfolgende Bericht soll Aufschluss über meine persönlichen Erfahrungen zu diesen Kopfhörern geben. Die Kriterien für die Auswahl des für mich richtigen Kopfhörers nach Wichtigkeit geordnet: 1. Klang, 2. Tragekomfort, 3. Verarbeitung/Material, 4. Aussehen

Benutztes Material: Quelle: CD, Musikstile quer durch meine Sammlung, vorwiegend Jazz, Electro, Pop, Rock; Hardware: Yamaha CDX-396, NAD C320 BEE

Beyerdynamic DT-880 Edition 2005 Klang: Sehr schön! Top Klang, detailreiche Wiedergabe der Mitten und Höhen , trotzdem kräftige Bässe. Die Auswahl zwischen dem AKG und dem DT-880 fiel mir sehr schwer. Ich habe einmal gelesen "DER Rock-Kopfhörer" - dem kann ich mich nur anschließen. Schöne Mitten, harte Drums, schöne Höhen, ohne nervig zu werden. Weniger Bass als der DT-990 Pro, trotzdem noch mehr als genug vorhanden. Dadurch wird er auch bei sehr langen Hör-Sessions nicht unangenehm, was beim DT-990 aufgrund der unexakten Basswiedergabe sehr wohl passieren kann. Vom Klangbild bzw. der Räumlichkeit unterscheidet sich der DT-880 trotzdem noch maßgeblich vom AKG. Mein persönlicher Eindruck: Während man beim AKG glaubt, vor der Bühne zu stehen und Instrumente gut orten kann, glaubt man beim DT-880 mitten im Geschehen zu sein. Der erste Eindruck ist der, dass der Beyerdynamic einen "volleren" Klang liefert, während der AKG im direkten Vergleich etwas "dünn" erscheint. Bei längerem Hören war es mir dann doch etwas "zu viel Klang" - um es mit meinen Worten zu sagen. Da bin ich dann wieder gerne auf den AKG umgestiegen. Fazit: Top-Kopfhörer bei dem letztendlich der persönliche Geschmack und auch die präferierte Musikrichtung entscheidet.

Beyerdynamic DT-880 Edition 2005 Tragekomfort: Ähnlich wie beim DT-990, allerdings mit etwas weniger Druck. Für mich der angenehmste Kopfhörer im Test, was den Komfort anbelangt.

Beyerdynamic DT-880 Edition 2005 Verarbeitung/Material: Von den drei getesteten KH, jener, der bei mir den besten Qualitätseindruck hinterlassen hat. Viel Aluminium, top verarbeitet, dafür ein bisschen schwerer.

Beyerdynamic DT-880 Edition 2005 Design: Finde ihn schöner als den DT-990, aber noch Welten hinter dem AKG. Aber das ist schlussendlich natürlich eine Frage des persönlichen Geschmacks....

Ich hoffe ich konnte dem einen oder anderen seine Kaufentscheidung damit etwas erleichtern! Die Eindrücke entsprechen natürlich meinen persönlichen Präferenzen.
