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...

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 Premium review

 

The ‘Premium' version brings improvements to the original model, delivering across the board with good sound, comfort and build

Big, open sound Overflow with detail Very comfortable and accommodating Sturdy build quality

Rivals have more punch in lower frequencies

Offering a hugely detailed, open sound and unquestionable comfort, the DT 990 Premiums have a lot going for them. If you can live with a loss in bass punch, these headphones can sit proudly next to your system.

In The List Of The Greatest Dynamics.

 

Beyerdynamic. A company that really "Invents" and "Innovates" unlike the other crap you see today that people here go mad for. I won't take any names because you see, people here are sensitive. Anyway, to the point. The DT990 is one of the oldest...

A True Eye Opener. A True Bargain. A True Class Act!

 

Okay I'll start by saying I'm a budding audiophile, only been in the scene for a couple of years and in that time made minimal purchases so my experience isn't ideal. Figured I'd mention that straight away, that being said I'm typing this review for...

Great cans out of the box!

 

It's been a long time coming this headphone, and I've finally pulled the trigger on this pair. I'm in Australia - where the retail prices of these cans were ludacris (AUD$347) - and they were on 'sale' for AUD$249 when I got them. Still daylight...

Soundstage - amazing. Good bass, great separation of instruments, and beautiful albeit recessed mids. Comfort

trebles, build could be better

I've been using it for one year. I'm very satisfied. Consistent and well balanced response. It's not linear, the low and high-end are a bit emphasized. But the sound is very natural and con...
