I had to look back and forth over why I liked the look of this DT880 over the amazon black version.
The amazon version looks like a knockoff T90, which isn't a bad headphone, but it looks close but a bit off to me. Like an uncanny valley with headphones.
The steel accents make this model stand out more in contrast to the many plastic all black headphones that exist. This is all styling preference, so if you don't like the look and/or aren't in the market for DT880's there may be better options for you.
The non-detachable cable stinks, but replacing the cable is a pretty easy affair on all the DTXX0 models. Not that I personally have ever had one of their cables fail.
I agree about the non-detachable cable, but the DT 770 and 990 are very comfortable headphones. I'm just torn between this drop, the special black editions, and the pro design for the 880's.
