I have to say that all of the hype associated with the DT880 PRO headphones is true. They really do have a detailed yet smooth sound. Like the reviewer above, I use them as an alternative mix reference, but I also use them to make guitar patches for my Axe-FX, and for easy listening. These headphones do not have the aggressive treble response of my AKGs, but they are more musical and enjoyable. Finally, these headphones are very comfortable; the velvet ear pieces make wearing them for hours a breeze.

I own a pair of these and use them in a small commercial studio. Primarily I use them for an alternate reference on mixes. They are comfortable to wear for long periods. Certainly not recommended for tracking phones as they are semi-open and do not have a lot of isolation. Not what they were meant for. The sound is clear and does not break up at louder volumes. Good bass for headphones. If you had to mix only on headphones these would certainly be a choice. I don't recommend doing that but it is possible. They are expensive but worth it. Cheaper than some other options out there but hold their own against almost all options.
