The maximum diameter of the DT770pro is about 11cm. Maximum depth including velour ear pads is about 5.5cm.

~Hope this helps

I got my DT880 (05), and very happy with it since the first minute listening it in shop. I love it because its great "compatibility" with a wide range of music, without significant artifact. I just order a Corda Opera and can't waiting to listen how it pairs with DT880.

I'm looking for a new pair of (Beyer?) cans, because my current of DT-531s are disintegrating from heavy usage and couple of bizarre low altitude related accidents. I was hoping you could give advice what current set would be best for my uses.

I love my old phones because a) they Groove and b) they are comfortable, even after extened period of use (several hours a day) and c) they just Groove.

I've owned DT311 (which are perhaps mid-fi but I liked them) and currently own Grado SR-225s but they are too uncomfortable and for me they sound like someone was shouting right to your ear, even at low volumes. I have auditioned some of the top line Senns but they were not as fun as DT-531s are (for me). So I was thinking I must be a Beyer guy...

I'm looking for phones that have the same groove as DT-531 but perhaps a bit more refinement. They have to be comfortable. I noticed certain AKG model is also called the new Groovalizer, but the pads look a bit small and uncomfortable (perhaps I'm wrong).

I have set my eyes on DT990 pro / DT990 2005 / DT880 2005. Which one do you think matches the sound of DT-531? They look weightier than the all-plastic 531s, are they as comfortable? I could get DT990 pro for 144 eur or the 2005 model for 245 eur, do you think the 100 eur difference is justified?

And if there is some other foot-tapping model or brand I should consider, please let me know. Thank you!

Personally, I recommend strongly going with the 2006 DT990. The best sounding stock Beyer ever, IMO, and I have owned almost all of them at one point

Wow, that was quick... and just what I was afraid of.
So the new 990 seems to be the choice for me.

Can you tell if there is a difference between the 2005 model and 2006 model or are they the same?
post #370 of 1777
There is no difference. Year 2005 is the official designation of the Beyers, whereas 2006 has become a popular title, since that is when they became widely available.

I'd also recommend the DT990 2005, it's the closest in spirit to the DT531 (I own both right now). The DT990 has a greater presence in the bass and treble, and is a bit more detailed with a larger soundstage. Both are very fun headphones, with the DT990 being a bit more technically capable. Due to their more revealing nature, I'd still say the DT531 is more appropriate for low-fi recordings and MP3's. I'd also recommend trying to salvage your 531's if it's possible, since they are quite nice and unique sounding headphones.

Thanks to both of you. You've confirmed my thoughts and the order has been placed.

Now that I will have my DT990s coming I have more time to try to take care of my old trusty DT531s. I need to devise a way to glue the split ear cup shell and secure the tab that keeps the ear piece pivot inside the headband, currently it keeps popping out. Come to think I could live with my DT351 happy, but after so many years with these cans I just need to experiment if the grass is greener on the other side. But my new mistress will be from the Beyer family too so that's not really cheating, is it?

Just got my 2006 DT-880s and I'm now a believer! Its not broken in and I just plugged it into my Iaudio X5L straight (no amp or external DAC have it at home not with me) and the detail/balance amazes me. I've formerly owned the Alessandro MS-Pros, AKG K701s, and Sennheiser HD-580 and the detail/balance on these seem to be the best (not saying they are my favorite headphone quite yet but I am very impressed even more so when factoring in the price). And this is considering the MS-Pros were connected to an external DAC/Tube Amp and the K701s/580s also were connected to much better sources than the beyers are right now. Can't wait till I hook it up to a proper source and get them properly burned in

Also forgot to add they are by far the most comfortable headphones I've ever had, my former most comfortable one was the AKG K701s.

Just recently rejoined team beyer with the 801/831/931. Much better than my experiences with the 880 and 990.
post #374 of 1777
And he snatched up an 831 to boot! Nice work getting your hands on 'em, they're the best kept secret in closed cans IMO. How similar are the 831 and 801 (the former succeeded the latter, no?)? <-LOL at my own punctuation!
post #375 of 1777
I'll know when they get here. They're in France right now.
