The DT 880 PRO Headphones from Beyerdynamic combines all strengths of open, transparent headphones with those of more powerful, closed headphones. Specially designed housings and an improved system equalization turn this "remake" of the studio classic DT 880 into an ideal studio monitoring headphone, with analytical qualities. The complete sound spectrum is reproduced in detail from a well defined sub bass to the highest highs. The headphone's soft ear pads and adjustable, sliding, earpieces together with a single sided connecting cable ensure listening comfort during extended periods of use.

I own and use AKG K240's (lack LF) and Beyer Dynamics DT770's (exaggerate LF too much) to evaluate and compare mixes to my Event ASP8 monitors and needed an open/semi open headphone that is more accurate for mixing. I am very pleased with my purchase. The 880 pro's are much more accurate/neutral in the LF and overall much better choice for mixing than anything I've used to date. In my opinion you can't get a better headphone for mixing in this price point. They are very comfortable and don't clamp hard on your head causing fatigue, yet don't feel loose either. I don't recommend them (or any "open" type phones) for monitoring while recording/tracking as they are semi open and will bleed into your microphone while tracking things like vocals. Due to the 880's 250 ohm spec it is recommended to use a good headphone amplifier to get the most from them. I tried them with my Iphone and Laptop and they work ok, but could use a little more power/volume. Many recording interfaces headphone outputs may be similar. I use a headphone amp. These phones are also available in 32 ohm or 600 ohm versions. If you're using them without a headphone amp such as for casual listening on your home stereo, iphone/ipod or laptop phones output, I would recommend the 32 ohm version. (the specs vary between the different ohm rated versions as well)
I've been across many monitoring headphones and the sound in these are amazing!! the DT 880 pros are the best!!! Go For It!!! You Won't Be Disappointed!!!
