Semi-open reference headphone for monitoring applications.
The DT 880 PRO 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.
DT 770/880/990 History:
The legendary DT 770/880/990 series has it's roots back in 1981, when the DT 880 was launched - the first dynamic headphone with electrostatic characteristics. In 1985 the DT 770 and 990 models were introduced, completing the series and providing the market with a choice of closed (DT 770), semi-open (DT 880) and open (DT 990) types, for maximum flexibility. The first designs of these models had plastic head bands which, whilst strong, weren’t as robust as the range demanded. However, in the beginning of the 1990's the first professional models were introduced, with spring steel head bands, aluminium yokes and extremely robust ABS housings. Subsequently, the range has taken the world by storm and models are being used all over the world, from recording studios to live broadcast to the home user.
