Beyerdynamic DT990 Premium review

 

The ‘Premium' version brings improvements to the original model, delivering across the board with good sound, comfort and build

Big, open sound Overflow with detail Very comfortable and accommodating Sturdy build quality

Rivals have more punch in lower frequencies

Offering a hugely detailed, open sound and unquestionable comfort, the DT 990 Premiums have a lot going for them. If you can live with a loss in bass punch, these headphones can sit proudly next to your system.

Excellent but you do need to avoid bright or mediocre sources.

 

When I first unpacked the DT990s I plugged them into a rather good Ruark radio playing on my desk. The result was an absolutely awful, screechy performance. Having recovered from the shock I remembered that I had boosted the treble on the Ruark to make...

Effortless detail and musical insight. Wide sound stage. Slight treble lift helps old folk like me. Revealing.

Awful with bright sources. Needs a proper headphone amp.

Great Headphones

 

Overall, these headphones are great. They have a very unique sound and their upper range is really fun in songs with bright upper ranges, like triangles.

Great bass, sparkly treble, good mids

Reveals sibilance in vocals pretty easily

This is a review of 32 ohm DT990 Premium headphones

 

As a disclaimer, this pair of DT990 was a review unit from Beyerdynamic. Arrived in a rather large box, beside a high definition picture of the headphones and a detailed technical spec, I always appreciate how Beyer guys honestly describe the sound...

Amazing comfort, revealing detailed sound, great bass response

no detachable cables, 32 ohm impedance still needs amping to drive from a phone

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Suits my particular taste both in signature and music genres.

 

I'm in a situation where I generally can't try out headphones before making a purchase so I really have to do my research; and I did a ton before deciding on these. I wanted a an "open" over the ear headphone with a large soundstage lots of detail and...

Slight "V" signature (which I like), Excellent bass extension & soundstage. Great for Rock-N-Roll & Watching Movies.

Can be slightly fatiguing to some on the high end if not properly amped.

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Still my main set after 2 years

 

The DT990 is my first HiFi headphone after the AKG K181DJ and also my ticket into the world of Head-Fi. First off, I have to say that my impressions are pretty consistent with what seems to be the mean impression out here on the web; I tried out al...

Great cans out of the box!

 

It's been a long time coming this headphone, and I've finally pulled the trigger on this pair. I'm in Australia - where the retail prices of these cans were ludacris (AUD$347) - and they were on 'sale' for AUD$249 when I got them. Still daylight...

Soundstage - amazing. Good bass, great separation of instruments, and beautiful albeit recessed mids. Comfort

trebles, build could be better

beyerdynamic DT990 Premium 250 ohms

 

I have only just started using the headphones a few days ago but I really recommend them. The sound quality has been excellent out of the box, as I am still wearing them in, but so far very impressive. The sound stage is considerably wider and easier...

High and detailed sound quality, Large soundstage, Good bass, Comfortable open headphones

Quite strong treble for some people, slight issues with build

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Lots of bass & treble, not for everyone

 

Build quality is very good, they do feel "premium". The finish doesn't attract fingerprints which is nice. Comfort is good, you do feel the headband putting a slight pressure the head after a longer session, but it's not bothersome. The velour pads are...
