DT 880 PRO: The virtual stage is tangible 03/2012

Title: beyerdynamic DT-880 Review

Translated from the original German article


Conclusion (...): For those in a hurry: The beyerdynamic DT 880 PRO is very good for monitoring a mix in a (home) studio. Particularly commendable is the flat frequency response, the balancing of all sounds from the bass to the highs is very good. The transient response and the fine resolution, although they are not of the highest standards, they are very good for a headphone of this price class.


Even with the room image everything is in balance. The virtual stage is tangible, the mono center always remains present. Only the most demanding would need to find something to complain about.


I completed the DT 880 PRO test review and was quite satisfied. I give it four and a half out of five.
