This means fewer headaches when calculating costs, no nasty surprises and more importantly, happier clients! I’ve only had a few hours to make comparisons (Bill Withers, Thelonious Monk, Radio 3, Bill Charlap, Heart of the Congos, Lana Del Rey), but I think this has given me adequate opportunity to make a pretty accurate judgement of the characteristics and comparative merits of the 990s.

The bass is not exaggerated like in some other headphones, so for listening and mixing pleasure, it’s rather suitable for acoustic music, and not music where the bass is key e. But for the usability I'd give them 4 instead of 5 — such type of spring-like cable always messing between you and your monitor out. These benchmark-setting studio headphones, available in three different models, boast extremely detailed resolution and very transparent sound.

After spending much time reading many reviews and forums regarding the DT990 Pro, versus the DT770/880 Pro range, I settled on the 990 Pro 250 Ohm version, as it's hard to justify double the cost for the 32 OHM versions of these. With that being said, I love the by some considered sharp highs of the dt-990's, everything sounds crystal clear, not "muddy" or "washed out".

Designed for mixing and mastering and editing, the DT 990 Pro is a 250 Ohm professional, open-back studio headphone that provides spacious, powerful and transparent sound.So I’m going to compare the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 250 Ohm (closed) and DT 990 Edition 250 Ohm (open) and tell you which one I use for which purpose. The DT 990 Pro comes with soft velour earpads, as well an adjustable padded spring steel headband for maximum comfort making them ideal for long sessions.

The wide stereo image and three-dimensional sound reproduction make the beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO headphones a loyal companion for Producers. I find the DT990 Pros to be very comfortable, and have a relatively low clamping force, slightly lower than all my Sennheiser headphones that I've ever owned, so I'm not sure why some people claim these headphones can be a little tight on the head, I almost wish they clamped a tiny bit harder! For decades our PRO headphones have been the reference for professional sound in recording studios all over the world.Note: The measurements you are about to see are preformed using standardized GRAS 45CA headphone measurement fixture.

Whatever way you cut it, comparing the 990s with the highly regarded and (to me) very similar sounding 880s and the more refined, more relaxed, but four or five times more expensive Amiron Homes, they are still very good sounding headphones and first class value for money - assuming, like me, you like the Beyerdynamic sound. The Amirons have a fuller, certainly pleasant and, I would say, slightly coloured bass by comparison, the bass on the 880s and 990s is leaner and, as far as I am qualified to judge, seemingly more accurate.On further consideration, with this set up, I’d say their sound signature lies between that of the 880s and the Amirons. This is because the close-back of the DT 770 reduces the spill of the headphone into the microphone. I have owned a pair of Sennheiser HD-580 Precision headphones (they based on the original HD600, and use the same driver) for many years now, but having gone over from using Hi Fi separates, to computer based audio equipment, I have been longing for a slightly more powerful sound, something that has a little more impact and sparkle than my old HD-580s, which are a lovely sounding headphone.
