beyerdynamic DT 250 Closed-Back Studio and Broadcast Headphones - 80 Ohm
The beyerdynamic DT 250 is a lightweight, closed dynamic headphone, which was specially designed for studio applications. It is featuring an efficient neodymium magnet system, a very high reproduction precision and a balanced sound. The wide transmission range between 10 - 30,000 Hz is another important feature.
The DT 250 comes with 80 Ω or 250 Ω-systems. The soft circumaural earcups offer a high wearing comfort and excellent ambient noise insulation. The padded head- band is fully adjustable and can be adapted to each head size. The connecting cables to the earcups run safely in the headband. The main connecting cable is single-sided, plug-in type with a golden combi 1/4"/mini jack plug. All parts are easy to replace.

I have been using the DT 250 for at least six months now. My previous go-to headphones for recording sound for film and TV have been the Sony MDR-7506. I still use them. I also use the DT-250. I am still not sure which I prefer for their sonic reproduction, but I appreciate both set of headphones for providing a closed back solution for on set recording of sound for film and TV.
Out of the box, the Beyerdynamic headphones are for sure more comfortable. The Sony headphones I eventually had to replace the ear pads with actual leather pads at which time I found the Sony headphones to be really comfortable. The DT-250 velour-style ear pad covering is really comfortable and feels good permitting a reasonable amount of air to 'breath' while still giving me a suitable closed-back isolation.
The weight of the DT-250 is much more comfortable and appropriate for my use in a very long day of wearing headphones when compared to say, the Beyerdynamic DT-770. The DT-770 feels great on your (at least on MY) ears, but they weigh a lot. For extended use, I find the DT-250 a better choice.
I like the cable connection to the headphones on the DT-250. The choice to be able to release the cable connector or to add the set screw to make the connection permanent is a nice touch.
One very real improvement to design over some other models is the tiny cabling that connects the two ear drivers to the output cable are well contained within the head band and are never at risk of being pinched or broken like in some other designs.
I am not overtly abusive to my gear, but it does get used hard and travels in airplanes and bumped around in cars and on film sets. The DT-250 seems like it will hold up really well over time, based upon my use over the past number of months, spanning hot sweaty temperatures to cold, icy weather. They are well made and deliver useful sound reproduction for recording sound for film/ TV as well as for recording sound in a music studio and for live sound reproduction where closed-back headphone designs are required.
