Beyerdynamic DT880 PRO vs. DT880 Premium - Explain $$$ to me

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I've been spending (way too many) hours going through the forum to identify the best full-size headphones for classical music...while staying under the $200 price point.

 

The Beyer 880's are high on the list...but there is a discrepancy I'd like to understand.  The Premium sells for almost $100 more than the PRO version, yet everything I've come across says the only difference is "clamp" pressure on the head.  Drivers are the same.  In fact, if I'm understanding correctly, one can simply take the PRO version, and slight bend the phones to relieve the pressure, making the PROS essentially the same as the premium.

 

I'm finding it VERY hard to believe that Beyerdynamic would have a $100 difference in "cost" due to this force...

 

 

What am I missing?

 

 

Thanks, and keep up the good work...this place does for headphones what FredMiranda does for Photography!  Its appreciated.

Thanks.  Yes, Amazon has the PRO for over $100 cheaper than the Premium version
