Excerpt: I highly recommend these beautiful sounding headphones for anyone just wanting to enjoy the music. they sound great through a Pioneer Surround Amp, but sound superb if you run them through a tube headphone amp such as a "Little Dot", that can handle the relatively high impedance these run at. You won't be sorry.
Pros: Clear Sound, Comfortable, Durable, Great Value For Money, Lightweight
Excerpt: Got the 250~Ohms unit. OMG, where have you been all my life! Amp required, but being open back you probably wont be taking these out of the house anyhow. These are up there with the sound stage produced through electrostatic headphone system, such as the STAX units, a system many, many times the cost of these units. Well done Beyerdynamic. Now, go get some!
Excerpt: I read many reviews about sibilant highs and boomy lows, and I've got to say that I don't agree at all. These headphones are definitely V-shaped, but very balanced (not neutral) and no particular frequencies are over-exaggerated (at least for me), and they have great bass for open headphones (I do miss the sub-bass of my hd380s, but I don't expect that in open headphones and the sound quality more then makes up for it).
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Lightweight, Very comfortable
Excerpt: All the reviews i've read about DT990 Pro are true EXCEPT being boomy/bassy and harsh treble - for me at least. Of course, frequency perception varies from one person to another and headphones are, at the minimum, just as good as the source. For the build quality, sound performance, comfort and price, i'm giving this 5-star rating. I wish the cable is removable, but that's never been a deal-breaker for me. I can't speak of its durability yet, only time will tell.
Excerpt: My first open-back and they've been great. I use them at home so I don't care that they leak out sound. I especially love the earpads. The treble is a bit much but wasn't a deal breaker after the break in period.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: after hearing my DT 990 Pro, many of my friends ordered it immediately. I directly plug it into iPhone 5. believe me no need of any external headphone amp. It sounds surprisingly good. In fact I'd say it is best sounding headphone i tested < $1,000 with iPhone Also it works even better with my Denon receiver's headphone jack. It is very comfortable wearing headphone (I wear it as earmuffs during winter).
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
Excerpt: I purchased these headphones after reading a number of reviews, to use in my recording studio. Let me say that these are the best sounding headphones I have ever heard. Full low end and crisp highs, without being over-hyped anywhere in the frequency range. And comfortable too, I can wear them for hours with no soreness or fatigue. Highly recommended!
