Beyerdynamic Premium DT-880 32Ω
The Beyerdynamic DT-880 32Ω is a reference-class, semi-open studio headphone which combines all strengths of open, transparent headphones with those of more powerful, closed headphones. Specially designed housings and an improved system equalisation turn this “remake” of the studio classic DT 880 into an ideal studio monitoring headphone, with analytical qualities. Soft ear pads and adjustable, sliding, earpieces together with a single sided connecting cable ensure listening comfort during extended periods of use.
32 Ohm Version – Designed for Mobile High-Performance Listening
This is the 32 ohm version of the DT 880 Premium line, designed explicitly to provide quality audio from low-powered sources such as portable music players and laptops. Its semi-open design and highly-efficient drivers allow for increased volume with reduced noise leakage while listening to low-output audio players. A lower-impedance headphone such as the 32-ohm DT 880 is ideal for use when you’re on the move but don’t want to sacrifice having an immersive audio experience.
A gold plated 3.5 mm stereo jack with 1/4″ inch adapter is included and is therefore suitable for use with almost all headphone amplifiers.
Semi-Open Back Design with Adjustable Headband and Velour Earpads
The DT 880’s semi-open, over-the-ear design offers slightly increased sound isolation and reduced noise leakage like a closed headphone, while retaining the high fidelity normally associated with open-back headphones. The adjustable headband lets you easily create the perfect fit for extended periods of listening comfort. Ideal for portable devices, this version of the DT 880 delivers the quality of a professional-level headphone design in a lower impedance headphone that’s perfect for your media player, music-playing smartphone, portable gaming device, laptop, or any other mobile source when you need high-resolution audio performance. The velour earpads make long periods of extended listening easy on the ears.
Dynamic Transducer for Increased Fidelity and Performance
Without exception, beyerdynamic manufactures the dynamic transducer systems that go into their headphones in-house. From the magnet and diaphragm to the careful wiring and circuitry, beyerdynamic controls quality at all levels of manufacturing, ensuring superior engineering in their headphones down to the smallest detail.
An extremely strong neodymium magnet system offers the DT 880 highly detailed sound reproduction quality, is mechanically very robust, and needs only a small amount of operating voltage which increases efficiency. This increased efficiency also leaves the DT 880 with greater power reserves for dynamic, undistorted sound that especially compensates well for low-spec mobile devices such as portable media players that often can’t perform at the same level as dedicated home equipment. The optimized 32 Ohm voice coil provides transparency and increased volume with portable devices.
