post #1306 of 10426

you know how it is...you dont choose hobby.

like...OK. Since now i will start listening to expensive audio gear! LOL!

Hobby choose you.

You have somehow feeling that you love music that is properly played on quality stuff, whole impressions from music change.

Same with photography.

I always wanted to shoot, i was making photos with gear i had...just before year and half, i finally managed to collect enough money for DSLR and all changed with this camera.

It's a pleasure for me to take photos of what i am interested in :-)

Yeah - damn these expenses...

post #1308 of 10426

I just gotta question.

Are DT 770 Pro Earpads bigger, to be exact, inner diameter is bigger than DT 880 ?

I am asking because DT 770 Pro / 80 fitted my ears perfectly, but if i put DT 880 on, my right ear touches inner circle of the pad and you wont believe how annoying it is.

I just ordered JMoney leather pads in hope they are wider in diameter.

Any ideas?

To my knowledge they are all the same and I use both the DT770 and DT880 pads - fwiw Beyer headphones are share the same design. The DT880 however uses softer and more fluffy velours pads that get thinner faster than the DT770 pads. New pads will probably cure the problems you are having with the DT880 pads.

thanks. i also bombarded JMoney with questions like this, so lets see what he responds with.

I only hope leather pads wont change / destroy sound quality & soundstage, but zombie_x liked them so...lets see.

oh god my big ears :-(

Sennheiser have little plus, oval pads are win.

I had Jmoney pads (I think they were v2, not the crazy thick ones they now sell) and they were very nice pads, but just not meant for the DT880 imo.

post #1312 of 10426

can you be more descriptive?

I do not know how actual pads looks like, post from zombie is 2 years old.

some up-to-date pics of pads would be nice.

Yeah - what do the pads look like?

post #1314 of 10426

Impulsive: the 770 probably fit better because:

  1. It uses leather/pleather pads. This may be stiffer, and definitely has more grip (due to friction) than 880's soft velour pads.
  2. You tried a 770 Pro, vs a 880 Premium. Pro models grip tighter than Premium, for all models.
post #1315 of 10426

yeah i know that pro models have bigger pressure on the head than premium..but how is it connected with size of the pad?

 

post #1316 of 10426

It's not. I pointed it out to offer an explanation for why the 770 fit better...

I'm with apatN, I think the 770/880/990 use the same-sized pads.

They are basically the same size as the stock pads. Jmoney uses the perforated ring and attaches leather to it.

The DT770 comes with velours pads also, but they are stiffer than the DT880 pads.

Really? Hm, maybe I saw a different model or sth. I recall p/leather on the pair I tried.

 

post #1319 of 10426

Nice - sounds like a good upgrade

post #1320 of 10426

600 ohm is much calm and steady than the 250 ohm. I like it.
