Beyerdynamic DT 990 (32 Ohm)

 

The Beyerdynamic DT 990 (32 Ohm) is a headphone pair for music lovers looking for an accurate, crisp sound signature that delivers deep bass without exaggerating it.

Superb audio performance with an accurate response across the board. Well-cushioned and comfortable over long listening periods despite its large frame

Hardwired cable. Bulky frame not for everyone

As headphones become fashion accessories geared toward on-the-go use with mobile devices, pairs intended purely for home use are becoming a rarer sight. The $379 Beyerdynamic DT 990 (32 Ohm) is that even rarer beast, with an impedance designed for use...

Beyerdynamic DT 990 Headphones Review - Intro

 

Beyerdynamic recently rereleased a bunch of headphones under their MANUFAKTUR program, which allows you to tweak the headphones' coloration, impedance, cord style, and other features. The DT 990s were one set of headphones that got this rerelease. ...

The DT 990s are a great set of headphones. They had great audio quality and the option to redecorate these via MANUFAKTUR is just plain cool. We implore Beyerdynamic to keep expanding the range of options users can fiddle with to customize their...

Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO Headphones Review - Intro

 

The DT 990 PRO headphones are a set of over-ears from Beyerdynamic. The DT 990 PPROs are open-backed headphones, which literally means the back of the ear cups aren't totally covered with plastic. Open-back headphones make your playback to sound like...

Look nice, seem durable, have open-backs ; Flat frequency response, very low distortion ; Comfortable, won't slide around a lot, long cord ; They're top of the line but not overpriced

Big headphones look silly on some people ; Open-backed headphones can't venture outside ; Not much in the way of frills, won't disassemble easily ; They could cost a bit less, but otherwise, no complaints

We're totally sold on the Beyerdynamic DT 990 PROs. These things have a great sound, excellent sound quality, are very comfortable, and have a long cord. The giant, open-backed cups give a very immersive soundstage. We also think they look good as...

Beyerdynamic DT-990 Premium 600 Ohm Audiophile Version Headphone (Playback 34)

 

Until Beyerdynamic's mighty T1 Tesla arrived on the scene, the DT-990 Premium ($369) was one of the firm's top two audiophile models (the other model sharing on of the top slots was the DT-880 PRO, reviewed in Playback 12). Now that I've heard the...

Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO

 

The DT 990 PRO headphones are a set of open-backed over-ears from Beyerdynamic. Open-backed headphones don't have a solid layer of plastic covering the outside of the ear cups. This featurewill give your music an open, airy quality, more like you have...

The DT 990 PROs had great performance results, barring the poor isolation and leakage caused by its open-backed design. They had an incredibly even frequency response, which will be great for purists who don't want their headphones adding their own...

Beyerdynamic DT990 (2005) Headphone Reviews

 

First let me say that I own many great headphones including the ATH-M50 and AH-D2000. I also use a Grace m903 for most of my headphone testing as I find it a neutral sounding amp.
