Note these have the leather headband only available on the Manufaktur editions (like this one)
With these options on BeyerDynamic's website (the only other place to get Manufakur editions), these come out to $434.

The custom editions are kinda overpriced, but these at 600ohm are going to be a nice upgrade from my old beat up 250ohm pro's.
Plus, these just look way cooler than the stock model. And that's really what you are buying here with this particular edition.

I remembered that someday in the past those wrote leather headband, but now, I cannot find it. Is it really leather this time?

I received my DT880 ABE edition, and as far as I can tell, yes, it is the leather headband.
It has a different color (blacker) and texture ( more porous) compared to my other DT Pro series headbands that I know are leatherette. During regular use I'm not sure I would really be able to tell a difference. In theory the real leather should breathe better.
It also has the "soft touch" binding posts where the headband meets the forks and the swivel hinge where the forks meet the cups. The soft touch material isn't particularly thick, but it does give it a nicer matte look.
The soft touch materials are only available on the manufacture model. I did not take that into account when making my earlier price comparison to custom versions sold from the store.

A number of small, but nice goodies over the regular DT Premium model.
