Hey, so currently I have DT 990 Pro, but the clamp is too strong so I´m going to sell them and try out DT 990 Premium, becouse i really like DT 990 sound signature. So my question is, should I go with DT 990 Premium 250 ohm or DT 990 Premium 32 ohm? It will be running on Fiio E10. Thanks
DT 990 Premium 250ohm or 32ohm with Fiio E10?

The 32 Ohm version has a high enough impedance that there should be plenty of damping. The 250 Ohm version adds some concern regarding voltage / current from a given device which is why I think the 32 Ohm version is the safer bet.
In response to the excessive clamping force you may want to try placing the headphone over a full-sized tissue box while they are not in use. I did this with my ATH-M50 headphones and made a large difference. Typically it takes a week to fully relax the fit.
