I had DT880 pro-250 verison and I didn't like them and I had the headband bent and they doesn't sound the same to me as the DT880 premium 600's. But then when I had the DT880 pro-250s I had used them with both a E9 and a STX that I had during the time of owning them before going to a A900X.
And that's exactly the kind of testimonial that gives the 600 ohm version its rep - mostly people who heard them at different times, often with different amps.

And of those who claim to have compared them in person, they seem to just as often prefer the 250 ohm variety as the other way around:
Still others say exactly the same:
They have the same drivers.
