but in the past the main difference was clamping force in the head band (pro = stronger clamp) and cable (pro = coiled) and sometimes the earpad material (pro = pleather)




This time, the Pro has coiled cable too, but judging from the pics Pro one has velour pads just like 2005 one.
IF only real difference is the clamping force, the Pro model seems decent a bargain as you can always stretch the headband for 2005 sound... unless Pro sounds better with higher clamping force that is...

Are you sure you are talking about the pro which MaZa is talking about? From what I've heard. It's the 2003 and earlier models who do not have bass. The pro which MaZa is talking about looks like the 2005 model.

I used the DT880 Pro when I tested the headzone Pro last christmas, and found it to be very similar to the regular 2005 DT880.
I don't remember much about the clamping force, but it might have been more than the regular. It was still comfortable, though.

afaik the only premiumline beyers w/ pleather pads are the DT770-M. They're also the only model with inline volume control.
