I've had issues with the DT 990 Pro version, I've had 2 of them and both had to be RMA well within 2 years with the original pair not lasting 1 week. Same problem with both sets, audio in the earcup cutting out because of the internal wiring developing a fault.
My question is do the premium versions of the Beyer DT line suffer the same issues ? What's the word on that ?
I'm in the market for headphone upgrade and I'm considering the Beyer DT 880 600 ohm but I worry that as the cable isn't detachable that I will probably suffer the same fate if I remain with the same house of headphone.
So with that in mind I'm considering the AKG Q701 for something a bit different. Plus it has a detachable cable and looks very sturdy. And you get a spare cable with it, which is just awesome! If only they offered leather pads too....
In addition, I'm also strongly considering the Denon D2000, but it does not have a detachable cable and it's availability is extremely limited in the UK now.
