What We Think
"The Beyerdynamic DT880 PRO is a perfect balance between the benefits of a more direct, coming-at-you sound and isolation of closed-back phones and the enhanced dimension and frequency linearity/accuracy of an open-back design. Beyerdynamic phones don't hype the bass or the top-end, making them excellent for mixing and for reducing ear-fatigue. Match them up with an excellent headphone amp such as a Burson Audio HA-160, HA-160D, HA-160DS or Soloist, and you'll gain some serious detail... but the Beyers still sound fantastic, regardless of the headphone amp. The DT880 PRO is one of our best sellers."

I keep coming back to Front End Audio because of their stellar product selection, great pricing and free shipping. I recently purchased the DT-880 Pros and what a difference they've made in my monitoring. I use them for a home-mixing alternative when I can't crank up my monitors and for DI recordings of guitars and bass. I don't have a ton of hours on them yet but so far they've been super comfy and sound great. They do need a bit of a push so I run them through a Presonus HP4 headphone amp between my interface and computer...no probs. So far? Love 'em!
just right for me. Thank you for the expert consultation prre-sale and prompt delivery.
very pleased with performance
These are my favorite and mostly used headphones. I can wear them for 10 hours a day and not be bothered, as they fit over the ears and have soft replaceable velour circumaural ear pads. This is a semi-open studio headphone with a neutral sound to my ears. I use them mainly for monitoring my music creations, but they are great for all uses. They should last a very long time!
Love the new cans! Purchasing from FEA was the easiest and breeziest.
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.
