The Beyerdynamic DT-990 Pro Headphones define what an open-back professional headphone should be! Razor-flat frequency response, ultra-wide sound-stage, un-hyped bass response, lightweight and comfortable... If there was ever an easy headphone to mix on, the DT-990 Pro is it.
The Beyerdynamic DT-990 Pro Headphones are open dynamic headphones of exceptional quality suitable for the most demanding professional and audiophile applications. The reduced weight of the diaphragm and moving coil result in a similar pulse characteristic as electrostatic headphones, and in combination with a carefully tailored frequency response offer a natural and balanced sound. Really, for the price of these headphones, the quality and sound are a home run! Beyerdynamic has two other headphones within the same price tag, the DT-770 Pro and the DT-880 Pro. While the DT-990 Pro gives you that full open-back, the DT-770 Pro is fully closed-back. The DT-880 Pro is the blend of the two giving you a semi-open headphone. Ultimately, it comes down to your preference on how much isolation vs noise bleed you want. Though the Beyerdynamic DT-990 Pro are very popular with many studios, we have a pair of the DT-770 Pro in the Front End Audio demo studio. Again, it's all personal preference. Hit us up if you have any questions or need help deciding what may work best for your situation.
Benchmark for Studio Sound
The Beyerdynamic DT-990 Pro Headphones are a reliable tool for any sound enthusiast. The wide stereo image and three-dimensional sound reproduction make the Beyerdynamic DT-990 Pro Headphones a loyal companion for producers. Outstanding tonal depth ensures that even small changes in the positioning of the acoustic source can be perceived while mixing.
The circumaural headphones with their open-back design provide exceptional spaciousness and detailed tonal depth. Their mild bass and treble boost ensures a pleasant sound. The bass is not overstated but rather precise and the treble boost is powerfully present without sounding sharp.
The single-sided cable allows the headphones to be put on and taken off frequently without cables getting tangled, and soft, adjustable ear cups provide for added comfort. The robust spring steel headband design ensures that the over-ear headphones also offer a secure fit.
Made in Germany
As with all Beyerdynamic professional studio headphones, the DT-990 Pro Headphones are handcrafted in Germany. The materials and component parts used are made by hand and can be replaced if necessary.

I'm a big Fan of the DT990's. I use these as references between my both Sennheiser HD650's and Event Opals. They always offer an an answer, or an alternative perspective to trackling a mixdown. They are very transparent headphones!!
