Dt880 premium vs pro?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have recently ordered a pair of dt880 premium 32ohms (amazon's mistake, I actually ordered the 250ohm)  and was quite disappointed because the inner ear cup was very shallow. It touched my ear and felt much less open (physically) than my cousin's dt990 pros. I was also disappointed by the flimsy and cheap look to the build of the headphone itself. I was wondering if the pro version of the dt880 would fix some of these problems (mainly the shallow ear cup). Any help would be appreciated.

I am almost positive that they are the same headphone but differently styled *one has a tighter clamping factor & a coiled cable. If anything I think the pro would be worse on you due to more pressure on your ears.

Yes, the pro has a tighter clamp. I've found Beyers to have decently deep cups, though, so you might need abnormally deep headphones to be comfortable.

I have realized that the problem was that the pads of the ear cups on the dt880 that I had ordered were worn down in comparison to the dt990 and therefore caused that problem. However, do the pro's have a more stiff and solid build to them than the premiums? And does the tighter clamp seem too tight for anyone? is the pressure the same as the dt990 or more?
