Our Verdict

Soft cushion comfort with the perfect grip, plus a sound that has impressive all-round ability.


  • Impressive all-round ability


  • Need more attack

Headphones don't get more comfortable than these DT880s, with their soft cushion and perfect grip. Sound is pleasing, too, thanks to an impressive all-round ability.

Tonal balance is excellent, from the fast, detailed treble to deep, attacking bass and a direct, textured midrange.

Insight and nuance are abundant, and there's very good dynamic range.

True, the very best headphones at this price point offer greater vim and vigour, but the Beyerdynamics remain an entertaining listen.
