Studio headphones for mixing and mastering (semi-open)
THE CLASSIC AMONG HI-FI HEADPHONES
Music lovers delight in its natural, vibrant sound as well as its excellent spacious reproduction.
The semi-open headphones attenuate ambient noise, but do not exclude it completely, and thus convey a harmonious sound experience. These headphones have been part of the beyerdynamic portfolio for 20 years and still enjoy exceptional popularity. All components are available as replacement parts, making the DT 880 Edition a reliable companion for many years to come.
CONCERT ATMOSPHERE AT HOME
The DT 880 Edition sounds very neutral and relaxed. The bass reproduction penetrates very deeply, but is not overstated. This feature is particularly appealing to lovers of jazz and classical music because it gives the headphones a really transparent sound and makes the individual components of the music clearly audible. Thanks to its semi-open design, the DT 880 Edition allows some ambient noise to penetrate and escape, but attenuates it somewhat stronger than in the case of a fully open headphone such as the DT 990 Edition.
DIFFERENCE COMPARED TO DT 880 PRO
The DT 880 Edition is identical to the DT 880 PRO when it comes to sound. That's because we use similarly designed acoustic transducers for both headphones. However, the Edition models have a somewhat softer headband for enjoying music at home with maximum comfort while our PRO headset has a slightly tighter fit on the head so that it doesn't move even in everyday studio use. Moreover, the Edition version is supplied with a straight cable and the PRO version with a coiled cable.
