The DT 990 PRO is an open dynamic headphone for studio applications. Due to a weight reduction of the diaphragm an excellent sound reproduction quality is achieved. Its rugged design with a spring steel headband ensures a secure fit and withstands all demands. Soft headband and ear cushioning systems ensure a high comfort over long periods of time.
The 990 is an open headphone with its advantages and disadvantages. While the sound quality is unbelievable, great response, balanced frequency response it lacks isolation. Using it for monitoring applications while recording is not a good idea as your microphone will pick up whats heard in the headphone. Nor does it perform well in noisy environment. Or might disturb your sleeping girlfriend in the room. :) They are perfect for mixing and mastering (as perfect as headphones can be) where no isolation is required.
One of the best headphones I have ever used. Great sound, and what I think is most important when buying headphones is, they are completely comfortable to wear; which especially come in handy when your in the mix for several hours (8-9h), great sound, best design.
Very accurate sound, very comfortable to wear over longer periods and very robustly build. And apparently very easy to repair/maintain (although I did not need to do this). I prefer the Beyerdynamics over the Sennheiser headphones for exactly the reasons specified above. Would only consider AKG as an alternative...
I really enjoy both just listening to music and producing music on these headphones. Not much can be said about them, except that they produce clear, neutral and detailed audio quality. They can also hit the very lows and the highs for precise mixing. They also come at a pretty fair price, and are constantly on sale, so if you can, please consider getting a pair of these amazing headphones!
