The DT 880 Edition is the classic among the premium headphones from beyerdynamic. Music lovers delight in its natural, vibrant sound as well as its excellent spacious reproduction. The DT 880 Edition attenuates ambient noise, but does not exclude it completely, and thus conveys 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.
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.
The DT 880 is very light for its size and ensures a pleasant fit thanks to its carefully selected materials. The ear pads are known for their breathable and skin-friendly velour, enabling the listener to enjoy music for hours without any excessive build-up of heat. The combination of comfortable headband and ear pads as well as the yokes made from aluminium lend the headphones a stable exterior and a pleasant fit for long listening sessions.
The DT 880 Edition headset for use at home and the DT 880 PRO studio headset: both are identical when it comes to sound. Identically designed acoustic transducers are used. However, the Edition models have a somewhat softer headband for enjoying music at home while the Pro headset has a slightly tighter fit on the head so that it doesn't move even in case of faster movements in everyday studio use. Moreover, the PRO version is supplied with a coiled cable and the Edition version with a straight cable.
The DT 880 Edition is available as a Manufaktur edition and can thus be custom designed to suit your requirements. Choose from a range of colours, preferred impedance, housing parts and different cables. All needs can thus be met.

By trimming down on unnecessary luxuries and focusing on core performance, the Watson is able to operate in a dual mono configuration, with a military grade NOS 6AK5 tubes being the center piece of each channel’s gain stage. Not only does this deliver rich harmonics typical of single ended class-A valve amps but also reduces warm up time of the valves significantly whilst extending the life of each valve to operate at their peak performance for more than 1000 hours per channel.
