DT880 Modifications

The modifications to the drivers and ear cups provide extended detail and control in the bass, to match the already crisp mids and highs. The 4-pin socket allows the cable to be detached, so it’s easier to use the headphones with different sources. This also makes them more portable and easy to store. We also change the wire around the headband that takes signal to the right ear cup, replacing it with paracord covered litz wire, which matches our custom cables and provides a lower capacitance for better timing and sound.

The Cable

This pair comes with one of our audiophile grade, ultra-low capacitance cables with a mini-XLR at one end and a jack type and size of your choice at the other. This audiophile cable is made of four wire cores that are wrapped in paracord. Each core is made of 84 strands of individually insulated copper wire. This gives a lower resistance than most OFC cables (so less insertion loss). The resistance for this cable varies depending on length and connector type, but is typically 7.5-40pF up to lengths of 2m. We have a range of colours that the cable can be made from as seen in the paracord list photo.

In addition to the balanced litz wire cable, we modify the stock cable with a 4-pin XLR, so the headphones can still be used out of the box on traditional 3.5mm or 6.35mm stereo equipment. This is cable is only included in the balanced version.

Please note that this listing only includes balanced connectors. If you need single ended connectors such as a 3.5mm or a 6.35mm then please take a look at our unbalanced listing: Link
If you are unsure as to what a balanced connection is then please refer to this guide.

Warranty and Shipping

All our cables have a 2 year warranty. If you experience any problems beyond 2 years we offer sensibly priced repairs. This is true of alterations too, so if in the future you need the cable to be shortened or re-terminating for a new amp we can do that for a sensible price as well. We will cover the standard warranty of any new Beyerdynamic headphones.

Over 60% of our customers are outside the UK, so we have a lot of experience with shipping worldwide. Tracking available.

Uber DT880 orders to be dispatched within 5-12 working days.
