  • Summary: Hello ladies and gentlemen, today i will describe my third pair of DT-990 Pro by Beyerdynamic!        Beyerdynamic DT-990 Pro 250 Ohm for their price of 140 dollars able to outperform every other headphones on the market with the same price tag.  Without further delay i must notify you that those headphones are not the very first ones in my posession (i owned three DT-990), but will be reviewed from this point of view because many professionals already own better pieces...
  • Pros: Comfort, Sound stage, details, unlimited amounts of bass (a debatable "pro" though), sturdy construction, PRICE, loudness, sturdy telephone cord....
  • Cons: ... and weak cord attachement to a headphones themselves, VERY fragile membranes, bass dominance.

  • Summary: Please note that all are opinions from a fairly inexperienced head-fi’er (see below for what I have to compare to). I am sixteen, and for the entire review, I am listening to rock. See below for a full list of the albums/artists that were used most for this review. So, all in all, this is a review of the DT990’s and how well they play with rock to my young ears. Still with me? Great, then lets get into it.
  • Pros: Clarity, soundstage, detail, treble, bass, COMFORT, build quality
  • Cons: May be too bright for some

  • Summary: Hey, this is my 1st review in head-fi forums & I am by no means a critic, so this will be a qualitative newbie review. 1st of all, I'll let you guys know that I've got them at an amazing price of just 144.99$ through a momentary sale going on for these cans. I previously had the Ultrasone HFI 580, so my review will be somewhat based on their comparison as well. I'll be breaking the review down to packaging & accessories, build, sound etc.
  • Pros: Clarity, Soundstage, Details,. Price, Comfort, build quality, Design
  • Cons: Sibilant, A bit too much bass, Slightly recessed mids

  • Summary: I have the 600 ohm model. So a headphone amplifier is obligatory especially if you are hard of hearing from too much loud music. I reserve this for classical music and home use. Just pure indulgence to the ears for pure magnificent and expansive concert hall experience. Perfect companion to classical music.    Try it with Mikhail Pletnev – Swan Lake, Op. 20: Act II By a Lake: No. 13. Dances of the swans: VI. Tempo di valse or Mikhail Pletnev – Swan Lake, Op.
  • Pros: Audio is superb - Excellent differentiation of details, wide expansive glorius concert hall classical music; extremely comfortable.
  • Cons: Need headphone amplifiers to enjoy bass for rock music

LEGIT!!

  • Conclusion: I love 'em. The DT990s are amazing once they break in. They have great but not too much bass, mids are warm and highs are clear but not harsh. They sound great on every style of music I throw at it (except for Banda and Country since they're not my cup of purple drank). I chose the 32ohm because I mostly use it to listen to spotify on my cellphone.

Beyerdynamic DT 990

  • Conclusion: I own several Beyerdynamic headphones and I enjoy them all. I used them for both TV as well as audiophile-level music listening. Imaging and clarity prevail. Great Low-level voice listening for late-night TV or music listening and clarity of voices, especially foreign languages.

  • Summary: I use this one a lot and like it for its clarity and specialy on acoustic and classic genre it have a very good potential.   The sound improve a lot with a high end amplifier and for example the issue for people who find it too shy on bass comes often from their source.   I found the mids a little bit recessed on this one but with a decent amp it's something not to bad.
  • Pros: very confortable, very open, good build quality
  • Cons: need and expensive amp to show its real potential
