High resistance 250 Ohm. Velor ear pads. Metal carcass.

The PRO version of the legendary open-back on-ear headphones that are still in active use in recording studios around the globe. They are made in Germany, boast impeccable build quality and have been trouble-free for decades. The design provides for easy assembly and disassembly of moving parts, the frame is made of metal, the velor ear cushions can be removed and washed, and the bowls can be easily detached from the headband using special clamps.

This attitude to trifles significantly extended the life of the headphones, so they are rarely brought to the service center for repairs. The sound of the Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO is unique in its way. On the one hand, they provide a moderately flat frequency response with excellent sound balance and a minimum coefficient of non-linear distortion, which can be useful for recording, mixing, mastering, audio restoration and any other work with sound.

On the other hand, the headphones do not sound boring and neutral, like many other studio models, but rather bright and hi-fi, for which they are appreciated by music lovers and audiophiles. Regarding the technical characteristics, it should be noted that the sensitivity of the headphones reaches 96 dB, and the declared frequency spectrum ranges from 5 to 35000 Hz. The device comes with a non-detachable 3-meter twisted cable with a 3.5-6.3mm adapter, so they can be easily connected to any synthesizer, drum machine, mixing console, sound card, smartphone or laptop. However, due to the fact that the headphones are high-impedance (250 ohms), for full disclosure, they still need a powerful signal source with a high-quality preamplifier.

Professional model DT 990 PRO from Beyerdynamic are highly reliable and comfortable open-type headphones for listening to music on Hi-End equipment.

German Precision

Everything in the model is aimed at maximum ergonomics. Round velor ear cushions do not tyre your ears even after prolonged use. They are not hot, and they can also be washed in a typewriter, according to the manufacturer. The frame of the headband is made of a metal plate, if desired, it can be slightly bent to give the structure a more comfortable shape. The cups do not rotate in a horizontal plane, and do not fold, but the headband is twisted, so using the headphones is more or less convenient. The soft leatherette overlay on the headband is made with rivets. It can be easily removed and also washed if desired. As for the assembly, there are no complaints, because it is German, and they know a lot about good things.

A twisted non-removable cable comes out of the left bowl, has a length of 3 m in a stretched state and for some reason ends with a 3.5 mm mini-Jack plug. Due to the fact that the headphones are high-impedance (250 ohms), for comfortable playback, they require connection to a powerful amplifier. Fortunately, there is a 6.3 mm Jack threaded adapter in the kit that allows you to do this.

juicy sound

As for the sound, here, as usual, everything is relative. But, in general, the overall impression is positive. The soundstage is very voluminous, each instrument is in its place and has enough space for disclosure. Low frequencies are moderate, but solid and detailed. The middle is not clamped and not failed. But the high ones are too bright, up to the pain. It is not surprising, the frequency range in the model is up to 35,000 Hz. Theoretically, a powerful amplifier could solve the problem of high-frequency bursts, but we did not find this at hand.

The Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO is a solid choice for 200 USD for a solid music pro and just a connoisseur of good sound, who has not forgotten to emphasize the big name of the manufacturer.
