Beyer DT 990 Review

Ken Rockwell
31 January 2012
  • Excerpt: The Beyer DT 990 is among the world's best open-back dynamic headphones. It has been a favorite among professional recording engineers and music lovers for 25 years for its great sound, moderate price and now solid build quality. The DT 990 has unusually clean, clear, uncolored and open sound ideal for any kind of music.

Beyerdynamic DT-990

Sound & Vision Magazine
27 January 2012
  • Excerpt: THE ONLY MAJOR MANUFACTURER I know of that makes the same headphone in different impedances, Beyerdynamic offers the DT-990 in a 32-ohm version for use with portable devices, a 250-ohm version for average home gear, and a 600-ohm version for high-end headphone amps. We requested the 32-ohm version because the other headphones tested here run in that range and because we figured most S+V readers would at least occasionally want to plug straight into a smartphone or a...

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

AVguide
14 July 2011
  • Excerpt: 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 DT-990 in action, I can see how it earned its place on the team, though it is significantly different in character from the DT-880 PRO. How is it different?

  • Excerpt: DT 990 (not pro) Beyer declined in 3 versions, 32Ohms, 250Ohms, 600ohms. The one I'm talking about is 600ohms. It is plugged into the headphone output, 80Ohms, a converter / controller TC electronic BM-C2. It is dedicated to listening cushy-audiophile, acoustic music. This is one of the best dynamics I've had o...

DT-990

  • Excerpt: Der DT 990 wurde für den professionellen Bereich konzipiert, das wird einem schon nach den ersten Tönen klar. Die Klangbalance ist atemberaubend, . er verfügt über eine perfekte Auflösung und einen konturenstarken Bass. Manchmal hat er fast zu viel Bass, der bei Klassik überpräsent wirkt. Allerdings wird die Ausrichtung des Klangbildes bei vielen Usern großen Anklang finden. Wir vergeben insgesamt 4.5 von 5 Sternen.
  • Pros: Hoher Tragekomfort, Erstklassige Verarbeitung, Ausgewogenes Klangbild, Detailreiches Klangbild, Austauschbare Ohrpolster
  • Cons: Mikrofon fehlt, Fernbedienung nicht vorhanden, Keine Farbauswahl verfügbar

Audiofanzine
6 November 2010
  • Excerpt: DT 990 (pas pro) Beyer en décline 3 versions, 32Ohms, 250Ohms, 600Ohms. Celui dont je parle est le 600Ohms. Il est branché sur la sortie casque, 80Ohms, d’un convertisseur / contrôleur TC electronic BM-C2. Il est dédié à une écoute pépère-audiophile, musiques acoustiques. C’est l’un des meilleurs dynamiques que j’ai...

  • Excerpt: - Depuis combien de temps l'utilisez vous? 6 mois - Quelle est la particularité que vous aimez le plus, le moins? Le Plus: le confort, la qualité du son Le moins:Le serre tete n'est pas reglable (grosse tete s'abstenir;au sens propre voire au figuré) - Aviez vous essayé beaucoup d'autres modèles avant de l'acquérir?...
