As far as the price is concerned I don't think I'll ever get such a chance at least in India where its unusual to find a 880-600 , also its kinda a collectible considering its the pro-600 , I think they circulated some PRO-600s across Asia and minuscule units were sent elsewhere , either way I am happy that I am half-way through my legendary trio collection , now time to find some AKGs :D
Have a good one man !
I own the DT880 Pro 250-Ohm and DT880 Premium 600-Ohm.
I do think the 600-Ohm sounds slightly better then the 250-Ohm, but only very very slightly better.
I can see Beyer making Pro 600-Ohm for special orders, so I'm not too worried about the headphones being fake.
Or this Beyer Pro 600-Ohm was manufactured before the current Premium version was sold on the market.
You can always email Beyers and see what they have to say.
I bought my 600-Ohm used and got a good price and I do think they sound a little better then the Pro 250-Ohm.
But I would not pay $280 for used or new DT880 600-Ohm (Premium or Pro) headphones (unless I was a Multi-millionaire, with lots of spare cash).
I think the guy is asking too much for what I would assume are very used headphones (well broken in headphones?).
Plus the ear pads might be worn out, it's $35 for new EDT 990 V (Velour) ear pads for the DT880s, and I'm sure they cost more in your country.
You can get new generic Velour ear for the DT880, off eBay, for $16, but i'm guessing they might not be as good quality as those sold from Beyerdynamics.
So I say pass on this, maybe good find a good price on some used AKG 7XX series headphones.
Check out the AKG K612 Pro (120-Ohm) headphones.
