Conclusion: I finally found a very comfortable, extremely accurate headphone. I go back to the days of the Koss liquid filled earpeices of the early 70's and while accurate for their time they became heavy and hot after extended listening periods.
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).
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 had this headphone for more that 8 months. All that i have to say is that this headphone have a beautiful look and a very good Quality of materials, and sound that exceed that of the nice "Hifi" sound system of my father and my other headphones (the Beyerdynamic DT770pro/80) for a very good margin...
Summary: When I first used these headphones they were very bright and the bass was heavily layered almost enough to be described as woolen. But as with all Hi-Fi products they need to burn in, they can’t perform properly until you have about 72 hours of audio burn.
