The 880 itself is a classic headphone.
The 600 ohm version is considered the best version of the 880 and pairs well with tube amps.
This is the premium version, not the pro.

I currently have the 250 pro, and I'm really considering this as a replacement.

The 600 is superior it hasnt been this low in a long time. Wish I could get this but I got other things way above it on the list right now......... Usually you can only get the 250 at this price but it has inferior speed(driver speed response especially in square wave tests) to the 600 when properly driven therefore the 600 has the best sound quality....... If I remember correctly the premium has a softer clamp on the headband and the pro a harder one.... mdickson92 you need to go study headphones you sound like someone who hasnt read the internet very much after upgrading your pc and screen the only thing left that will really blow you away is audio.... I just added some silver occ copper wire to my soundsticks braided and soldered and heatshrinked myself with clear heatshrink and my dewalt heatgun from that deal a couple years ago man they sound way better so much more detail good audio equipment can have you feeling good in 2 seconds(I hear a ton more detail even in youtube videos)............. I got like 20 pairs of headphones and the idsd and I modded the usb cable(still working out making my own gonna make god shielding(aluminum powder makes excellent shielding pretty much goes silver, copper, aluminum when it comes to electricity copper powder is no good cause it tarnishes too much and silver is a waste of money and material best to make wires with silver) with aluminum powder but I'm trying to source shiny aluminum flake might as well make it pretty too) to draw power from my bolse 60w usb charger and it boosted the bass cheap occ wire from china and some chinese usb connectors 10 for 2 dollars off ebay and usb otg female connector 10 for 1 bucks china has all these little cheap things for 1 or 2 dollars free shipping that will really upgrade your sound system x-acto knives and scalpels uv cured nailpolish 5 second fix(like bondic but super cheap 3 bucks for pen with light plus extra refill or 1.17 for refill alone and you can just buy 1 dollar uv flashlight instead of pen still pen comes out to like 60 cents and you can stick it in crannies a little better when insulating wires in audio connectors.... way better than hot glue or super glue cause it doesnt stick to anything you get it in place like you want then harden it or wipe it off and start over or mold it..... I dont even buy superglue anymore except loctite for big jobs or places where you cant get the uv light in there cause what your bonding is opaque cause bondic/ 5 second fix doesnt work on that. You should also rewire all your headphones with occ silver plated copper wire or pure silver or silver gold alloy(usually 1% or less gold), pure silver and silver gold can get super expensive especially in occ(single crystal of metal) form. Great thing about china is all wire is sold by he meter and its super cheap(except pure silver that can get pricey), in the states its usually 10x more(silver wire is about the same price in china and usa of course over here it can get super expensive) you can get 20m of occ copper silver plated wire .75mm2 which is good for an unshielded interconnect headphone cable or small speaker wire tweeters or dac power wire..... for 35 bucks would probably be over 100 if someone in the states made it and sold it like that for some reason the us has ignored occ wire and almost all us manufacturers sell ofc wire.... occ wire has superior geometry single crystal all bonded perfectly so electricity is transmitted faster and more uniformly and silver has 105% the conductance of copper and higher signaling speed(switching of voltage) thus silver and occ has more uniform(more perfect) signaling and more bandwidth the electicity travels on the outside of the wire and the silver makes the sound more detailed and much better highs and the higher conductance will deliver better bass punch as will the occ geometry given you compare it to a copper ofc wire of the same spec strands and strand guage......

If you change anything on a headphone you can drastically change its sound anything with the driver or cups adding damping material the headphone clamp the thickness of the ear pads all greatly influence the sound and are tuned by headphone manufacturers you can read about this on the fostex t50rp mk2 threads on head-fi but these were largely resolved with the new mk3 release so you dont need to buy alphadogs anymore still it shows you all the engineering goes into headphones and how hard it is to get it just right even modding an already well designed headphone is extremely hard and takes tons of manhours and lots of tools. The t50rp is the all around cheap god headphone with allot of speed cause its electrostatic or planar I forget which one it is right now exactly and the dt880 is one of the top all time headphones in the price bracket above the t50rp by a couple hundred dollars.

After I typed this went for a jog and noticed my monster turbine coppers i bought on deal here for 175 msrp 400 at that time and one of the top iems of that year years of jogging in them the cable at the end of the stress relief was shorting so i just cut it apart resoldered it stuck the oringal connector back together using 5 second fix and superglue and im gonna add some extra heat shrink around it this time and wow they are brighter in the highs maybe a smidge too much its like they were using poor solder on this on purpose to tone the highs down no wonder these are such good headphones they are super sharp with poor connections intentionally to tone them down might have to redo it or just less volume but 5% silver solder is too good for these definitely allot more detail tho I think the electron sea effect of metals that if you put silver upstream in the electrical drive train it adds bandwidth all along the length downstream of it at least 5 or 6 feet never tested it crazy how that works...... too bad we dont have more research into this area so we had the answers instead its all proprietary so people can overcharge 10000 dollars for a board or cable that costs 2 dollars to make even if the wire is pure silver..... on second thought maybe i just need to get used to them Smilie interesting the individual wires werent sheathed just really fine magnet wire with different coating colors(microphone like wire super fine which makes the signal very clear but very little power with occ you can get away with thicker and cause its so clean and fast and get more power and lower resistance too) had two grounds too I've been making my trs interconnects with just one ground wire but maybe i should rebraid them with 2 grounds and thus 4 wire.... these monster coppers do sound great especially for single drivers.... driven off iphone 4s you want the cheapest throwaway ipod for workouts with a decent built in amp just get a used iphone 4s off ebay make sure its not theft locked or damaged beyond scratches I wouldnt pay more than 20 bucks... just keep eye out they always coming......

The 600 Ohm version is the best sounding most precise version.... even Tyl at innerfidelity as posted tests to prove it...........
