I’m interested in these headphones, and was going to get these as a trial pair before investing in the 1990S, but reading the reviews on Amazon about this product scared the be Jesus out of me. Anybody have any idea why so many people reported ear cups going out after nine months etc. etc.?
I have the DT880 Chrome Edition which is what these are with the exception of the grills and the black ring in place of the chrome ring. I purchased mine Jan 2017 and while I've been gentle with them I have a few 100 hours of headtime and I see no issues whatsoever. My theory is the people that complain About build issues are those who beat on their headphones. You need to treat these with care. Dont leave them out. Don't drop them. Don't toss them around like trash. Baby them and you won't see any issues. The ONLY issue I've observed with my DT 880 vs my DT990 is the slider on one side feels like it's hanging up on something and doesn't slide as smooth as the DT 990. I adjust them to my head and leave them extended when I place them back in their case after use so it's a non issue for me. It could be easily fixed since these headphones can be disassembled very easily.
