Translated from the original German test report
[...]If you look at the DT 880 Edition from the outside, it stands out with the best manufacturing quality of the tested models.[...]Even after wearing the headphone for several hours it does not put pressure on the ears. Under the ear pads a rise in temperature is not noticeable—an advantage of the semi-open design.[...]Compared with the MMX 300 reference headset of the same manufacturer, the DT 880 features more fine details and a higher resolution. With an activated Dolby headphone a good tracing in games is possible. Rating: 1.73

The classic dynamic headphone. The plush pads appease the rather high headband pressure and the live weight of 350 grams. It sounds brilliant and always harmoniously – a headphone with a spectacular bass and treble response, which, however, never sounds intrusively or coloured.
