Welcome to Headphone Heights, the place for all your ear bud discussion

Hope They're Better Quality Than the 550's

Because I have a pair of those literally rotting on my nightstand. The ear cups are flaking the black material off everywhere, and the rubber parts are turning to a sticky goo. Just awful. Comfortable, and sounded good, my family got them for me as a gift, but they've got to go in the trash. Had them for maybe 3 years.

I'm considering the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro, 32 ohm, $159 or so from Amazon. I have the DT880's and love the sound. Headband needs a cover since it's also got the rubber go problem, but the ear cups are velour and are still in good shape.
