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.
