This is the second pair of 990 headphones I have bought. The first pair lasted eight years of daily extended use.

I use these headphones for enjoying music. There is an evenness of response throughout the frequency spectrum, and unlike many other headphones there is no thickness or muddiness in the midrange. Distortion is not apparent unless the volume is extremely high.

The headphones are not ideal in a studio situation because of sound leakage, but in that situation you wouldn't want to use these headphones anyway. The headphones are comfortable and light to wear for long periods, although you will find your ears get hot. I don't think the headphones are ideal for monitoring purposes as the sound is good no matter how bad the mix! The mids are so trim that when you listen to your mix on monitor speakers the mids will sound *very* thick. I often find myself EQ-ing out the mids for this reason. Tip do an A/B comparison with a soundtrack you know to be well balanced before mixing with these headphones.

Overall these are excellent headphones.

2 weeks researching a replacement pair of head phones for my broken athm50s which were great i decided on the dt990's mainly as i wanted to try a different pair and give open backs a go. It came down to these or the AKG 702, decided on these as i have used the dt100/150s before and knew about the durability of beyer stuff. I read about how the 250OHM model is hard to power and absolutely needs an amp and you can hear every external sound outside the headphones i have found that this is not the case and was reading too much into it, they run off my 13 inch laptop headphone output fine and my interface (m audio profire 2626) handles them alot better. To me they feel like a natural sonic progression from my last pair the athm50s which are a great set as i already mentioned. I thought the bass might be a bit light but it isnt its very detailed in my opinion more honest than the athm50s basically you can feel it but its not over pronounced also dont leak sound as much as i thought. Very light and comfortable as well.

Really good headphones for drum and bass and other electronic music. However, they do need time to burn in at least 20 hours and more to really shine out. Though can be bright treble for some but can tune it through Eq settings. Other than that happy with these phones. Also pretty good for gaming purpose.

I bought these headphones to produce music whilst on the move. They come highly recommended by some of my friends and also from some of the research I did online. For the money I think these are one of the best you can get. They have a very good build quality and are unbelievably comfortable. These headphones are absolutely fantastic and have a great sound quality. I think that they also translate well onto monitors too.

The headphones are superb.
Great sound across all frequencies, tight bass, full mid and sparkling trebles. And what more...they're comfortable.
One thing I don't like and that is non removable coiled cable...I guess that's a matter of taste, but it would be nice to have an option to swap it for straight.
Overall in this price range it's a great product.

Great cushion pads and head grip good for mixing in although there are two different places they could sit on my head which sound different in bass and mids and not quite sure whoch one is true yet- good price for decent headphones - cable could be longer- all gripes are minor- I'm a writer/co-writer/producer/musician and needed some headphones for when artists came down to write songs and track vocals and these do the job very well
