Title says it all. Up until a few weeks ago I owned the DT-770 (Pro/80) model and loved it. Both of the drivers ended up rattling (from what I've read probably due to hair getting in the drivers) so since I had them covered by squartrade I sent them back for a full refund instead of trying to fix them myself. I really enjoyed them so naturally I reordered them via amazon a few days ago.
Today they arrived and I realized that I accidentally ordered the 250 Ohm versions Embarrassing, I know, but they look identical to the 80 Ohm version and I thought all 250 Ohm versions looked like the redesigned 2005 versions. Serves me right for not checking the specifications more closely! So now I'm in a bit of a pickle. Do I send these back and reorder the 80 Ohm versions (for an extra $30, unfortunately), keep these, or go for the DT-990 Pro 250 Ohm version (the pre-2005 version, with older black plastic).
I'm definitely going to keep these (Pro/250's) around for a week or so to test out, but I'm wondering about your guys opinions as well. From what I gathered the general consensus is the Pro/80's sound a bit more balanced. Thoughts, opinions? Thanks!
Edit: They'll be driven by an Xonar Essence STX so powering them isn't a problem
