  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Soundstage - amazing. Good bass, great separation of instruments, and beautiful albeit recessed mids. Comfort!
  • Cons: trebles, build could be better

  • Summary: As a disclaimer, this pair of DT990 was a review unit from Beyerdynamic.   Arrived in a rather large box, beside a high definition picture of the headphones and a detailed technical spec, I always appreciate how Beyer guys honestly describe the sound signature and talk about the comfort without any...
  • Pros: Amazing comfort, revealing detailed sound, great bass response
  • Cons: no detachable cables, 32 ohm impedance still needs amping to drive from a phone

  • Summary: I'm in a situation where I generally can't try out headphones before making a purchase so I really have to do my research; and I did a ton before deciding on these.   I wanted a an "open" over the ear headphone with a large soundstage lots of detail and good bass extension.
  • Pros: Slight "V" signature (which I like), Excellent bass extension & soundstage. Great for Rock-N-Roll & Watching Movies.
  • Cons: Can be slightly fatiguing to some on the high end if not properly amped.

  • Summary: The DT990 is my first HiFi headphone after the AKG K181DJ and also my ticket into the world of Head-Fi. First off, I have to say that my impressions are pretty consistent with what seems to be the mean impression out here on the web; I tried out al sorts of headphones that were comparable in price...
  • Pros: Detail, Bass body, Treble, PRaT, Soundstage, Dynamic
  • Cons: Needs right setup, Somewhat recessed mids, Fatigue

  • Pros: High and detailed sound quality, Large soundstage, Good bass, Comfortable open headphones
  • Cons: Quite strong treble for some people, slight issues with build

  • Summary: Build quality is very good, they do feel "premium". The finish doesn't attract fingerprints which is nice.   Comfort is good, you do feel the headband putting a slight pressure the head after a longer session, but it's not bothersome. The velour pads are nice and the ears do not get warm.
  • Pros: Bass, clarity, soundstage, comfort, build quality
  • Cons: Sibilant, mids

  • Summary: Last year I bought Beyerdynamics DT990 Premium with 250 Ohm in a custom design:     I really love their design (Of cause, I also designed them in some way :p)! The opportunity to create your own, unique style for these high end cans is pretty cool.
  • Pros: sound, design, (unique)

  • Summary: These are my first audiophile grade headphones so forgive my vocabulary.   I use them primarily to listen to Trance.   I have no other headphones to compare.   They are paired with a Millet Hybrid MiniMax Amp.   I will just say that for my listening choice these headphones feel perfect.
  • Pros: Vibrant, Deep clear bass, sound stage is huge and very accurate, precise no wasted enegry.
  • Cons: Some sweat and slight ear fatigue (room is hot). Highs can be too high for some.

  • Summary: I would make it short.   1.This headphone has strong resonance in 80~100Hz, you would need a very strong amp to overcome the emf, or would got a notable unnatural bump in upper-bass.
  • Pros: Total clraity tone、ultra transient, froward,focus,but relex present
  • Cons: Very pickly (about amps), Headband permeant sweat,sensitive about environment humidity
