Actually the 880 and 990 use the same pads.

 

EDT 990 V = silver velours for 880/990

EDT 990 VB = black velours for 880/990

 

EDT 770 V = silver velours for 770

EDT 770 VB = black velours for 770

I stand corrected!

Adding a bit of cloth infront of the headphone helped so much. I just used some microfiber cloth and placed it in there. Ill probably just buy some felt and replace the black cover with something more colorful. Want to color my dt990s as well behind the grill.

Awesome! Throw up some pictures of them afterwards.

Can anyone measure the diameter of the DT770 Pro without the pads on?  I'm interested to know if these EDT 700 pads are compatible with the DT990 diameter.

 

Edit: nvm I juts got confirmation that they are the same size but the foam used as being different.

Just in case anyone else really wants to know, the diameter is 4 inches.

I wear glasses as well with my 770Pro-250.  No issues here, and I have a moderately large head.  M50 didn't hurt me either.

Maybe it is your glasses' frame?  Or you are unlucky and the headphone design doesn't quite work for you at all.

The question isn't will the pads fit, its will the pads sound good. All of the full size Beyers are the same size so technically all of their pads are interchangeable but only the ones designed for your model will sound right. Its particularly troublesome to use pads designed for open headphones on closed headphones and vice-versa. So in the case of the DT770, I would stick to the 770 velours (EDT 770 V and EDT 770 VB).

 

@TMRaven: As I said, they all fit each other but they won't sound right. For the 990 you want EDT 990 V (silver) or EDT 990 VB (black).

 

 

 

EDIT: I mistyped one of the model numbers for the pads. To clarify:

 

Use EDT 770 V (silver) and EDT 770 VB (black) for the DT770 and possibly other closed cans that they fit on.

 

Use EDT 990 V (silver) and EDT 990 VB (black) for the DT880, DT990, and possibly other open/semi-open cans that they fit on.

They're really comfortable without glasses. I adjusted my glasses, stretched out the headband, and tried softening up the pads, and its a bit better. It probably is my glasses the frames are kinda thick but I never had much issue with other headphones.

Wondering if the velour pads will be better.

What pads are you using now? Velours are definitely the most comfortable type of pads for people who wear glasses. My glasses are relatively thick-rimmed and the DT770 & DT880 are probably the most comfortable headphones I've ever tried, with or without glasses. To be honest, my glasses never cause me comfort issues with over-ears, only with some on-ears, but if you're having comfort issues I definitely highly recommend you switch to velour pads.

Get the velours, you won't regret it. Look for EDT 770 V for silver:

or EDT 770 VB for black:

Aside from the color they are the same.

Get some ALPHAS! I just got my DT770 Premium 600 ohm in the mail and had to see if my Alpha Pads fit, and they do, perfectly. The sound and isolation is amazing.

Something between the clamping force, shape of my head, and glasses frame just isn't working. I doubt the material of the pads would make a huge difference. Looks like I'll have to sell for a loss and switch to an IEM. 

They have been comfortable for the last half an hour but I don't wanna jinx it. If I do end up keepin em I will get the velour pads. Only thing is that the pads are so expensive in Canada.

I think you should just switch to contacts, makes everything so much better.  More comfortable, no frames in the way of seeing, feels more natural.  And you can wear headphones with no problems.
