ok, this is making me want to send dt880s to amir. my subjective opinion is that the hd800s blows the dt880 out of the water.
make sure it's the 600 Ω version

it's pretty obvious where the measurements are coming from since you can see the website names in the video. They're more than welcome to copyright claim the video lol

Hd800s's measurements are ok except frequency response which can be eq'ed. Hd800s *after eq* has something special to it. i dont know how to describe this special. it is just sheer presentation of music the way it does is quite absorbing and engaging to the listener. decent amp needed for sure. i have an akg 371 and is awesome in measurements but its presentation still sounds boring and uninspiring to me. nothing against beyer , i do have a t1 and like it.

HD800S is very solid if bright... DT880, not so much.
