These look Stunning!!!! Anyone own a pair of regular 880 Pro's, any comments?
Not the same? These seem to have the exact same grill / semi-open back as any other model of DT880, either pro or premium.
I don't know that I agree with your statement about the 880 having more bass than the 990. You seem to be assuming that the 880 is simply a 990 with a more enclosed back, this is not the case. The 990 has a v-shaped sound profile with boosted bass and treble, while the 880 is quite flat by comparison but a lot more detailed and precise.
I've used DT880 Premiums regularly for the last 4.5 months. The bass is very recessed, so please don't buy them for that.
They're very comfortable for 3 months or so, until the comfy-but-essentially-disposable earpads compress down to nothing and the drivers start pushing right up against your ears. The official pads are $30-35 to replace and I haven't found an aftermarket pad that didn't sound worse.
