Beyerdynamic DTX100

Tested at £100

A good upgrade option, but we'd go for the £20 cheaper DTX 80s

  • Open and clear presentation
  • extremely detailed sound
  • excellent sense of rhythm and dynamics


  • Slight loss of pace

Want the excellent DTX80s with an extra wadge of bass? Well then, the DTX 100s are probably for you: but you need to bear in mind that with that extra low-end extension comes a small loss in overall pace and, for us at any rate, excitement.

Don't mistake our meaning: the 100s are still rhythmic, open and detailed, and they are significantly weightier and fuller-sounding, but it nevertheless has to be said that the 80s have a smidge of extra sass and attitude.

It's a close-run thing, but that tiny advantage, plus the £20 saving, would see us spend our money on the cheaper pair.
