A detailed, spacious and big sounding pair of headphones. I have owned a pair of sennheiser hd-580 precision headphones (they based on the original hd600, and use the same driver) for many years now, but having gone over from using hi fi separates, to computer based audio equipment, i have been longing for a slightly more powerful sound, something that has a little more impact and sparkle than my old hd-580s, which are a lovely sounding headphone. I was initially sceptical about these beyerdynamic dt990 pros, simply because of the low price, and the deep confusion that surrounds all the various different ohm ratings beyerdynamic use across many of their ranges. It seems that the sound actually varies depending on which impedance rating you end up purchasing, as to if you will get too much treble, or too much bass, or deeply recessed mids. After spending much time reading many reviews and forums regarding the dt990 pro, versus the dt770/880 pro range, i settled on the 990 pro 250 ohm version, as it’s hard to justify double the cost for the 32 ohm versions of these. After opening up the box, i was instantly reminded that the cable is of the coiled variety. This kind of reminds me of those big boxy headphones you could get in the 70’s. However after actually using the headphones, the coiled cable is actually better for me than having nearly 3 meters of cable hanging on the floor in front of my computer, where i sit when listening to music. So, just to set the scene, the 990’s are connected to my computer via an objective2 headphone amp, with built-in odac, connected to the computer using usb. River media player v19, and have it set to directly connect to the odac at 24bit & 44khz sample rate. I started out by having my trusty sennheisers connected first, and listened to some music, just to give myself a reference point for the 990’s. Then i quickly replaced the senns with the 990s, and wow. To my surprise, the 990’s actually sounded slightly louder, and had much better bass, and much more detailed upper mids and treble. The overall midrange was about the same as the senns, so i was instantly in love with the 990’s.
For my needs and environment, (small project midi studio), these have been just the job for well over two decades. There may be better options for other uses but for my particular requirements they have been great. Lovely detailed sound and i can wear them for hours in a day without the awful fatigue feeling with some others i have used.
Fantastic headphones, granted ive only had my pair for. Fantastic headphones, granted ive only had my pair for a few days but they both look and feel amazing and their performance is outstanding.
Beyerdynamic DT990 PRO Headphones – 250 OHM : Nothing to say that hasn’t already been said. Excellent build quality, great sound, comfortable as all hell. If you’re thinking about it, get them (or the 770 if you want the same performance in a closed back design). Really nice balanced sound capable of ample bass if that’s what you’re into. Coiled cable is nice if you have a lot of cables too. Not practical as an out and about set of headphones but that. S not what they are intended for.
