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.

Sturdy and durable build. ; Great, open audio reproduction. ; Stable and well-padded.

Loud leakage, by design. ; No isolation from ambient noise, by design. ; Slightly tight on the head.

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. 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...
