Yes - this isn't noticed a whole lot from what I can see,
and I think that's because the Premium is more widely
available than the Pro.
But from what I can tell, the differences are structural
More specifically, the headband of the Premium is
coated black foam of some type (not sure if it's memory
foam or otherwise). The headband of the Pro has foam
too, but it's covered in some synthetic material which
wraps around it and snaps on and off. In other words,
it's replaceable - as is every part of the Pro.
Here's a picture of it:
The Pro has a coiled cord; the Premium a straight cord.
The Pro has "DT 880" sort of 'printed' on the outside of
the earcups, while the Premium actually has a metal
plate imprinted with "DT 880" actually pinned or riveted to the
outside of the earcups.
AFAIK, those are the only, or certainly the main differences.
The drivers seem to be identical, the earcups and padded velour
covers on the inside as well.
There may be a very slight weight difference between
the two versions.
The Premium ships in a large foam padded zipper
case made of leather...the Pro ships with a velour pouch
But for 100% certainty on this, I'd contact Beyerdyamic
(rather than a reseller).
