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 use these for mixing as the bass is unreal and I don't have a sub, as with all Beyerdynamic products sound quality is awesome and they have a very flat frequency response.
In my eyes at this pricepoint best in class - highly recomended
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!
I would easily place this pair of headphones at no.1 out of every pair of headphones I have ever tried, or ever will try. The DT 990 Pro's offer an excellent frequency response and accuracy (though the high ends are quite sharp, for users who are constantly switching between headphones). The comfort factor of these headphones is second to none, it is incredibly comfortable on the ears which is vital if you're working on / listening to stuff for pretty much the entire day. One observation on the DT 990's for me is that you could leave them on and not even realise they are there: being open back headphones, you can hear your surroundings much clearer and louder than closed back headphones.
I wouldn't recommend using these headphones in a busy and loud environment (i.e in public, a studio where musicians are practicing and such) as you may not be able to pick up on every detail on whatever it is you're listening to and monitoring- which is exactly what these headphones are designed to do and do so quite incredibly. For someone who is always on the road producing (which is a great idea, if it works for you), this may not be the best for you for the fact that these headphones pick up a lot more surroundings and noise than others.
I very strongly recommend these headphones if you are a bedroom producer, a mixing engineer or whatever the sort for all round studio work, but especially for mixing and mastering to pick up on every detail in the mix. As someone who works in a bedroom and a quiet household, these headphones suit me perfectly and honestly? I would be willing to pay a higher price for these amazing quality headphones from Beyerdynamic.
