Gorgeous Headphones

I'm really pleasantly surprised in these cans. Super high quality design, really well-made for the money. Best money I've spent in a long time. I love how comfortable they are. I have a small head, and very few headphones feel comfortable on my head. But these are always very comfortable. At first they sound a tiny bit on the harsh or "tinny" sound, but once you wear them in for about 10 hours (just leave them running, plugged in) they really start to open up and get a lot warmer/silkier, and that harshness goes away... Straight to a golden sound!! I really love them! Best headphones I've owned yet, can't believe they're so cheap.

This my first end of high-end headphones, so I can't compare them them to others' personal favorites, but I can say that these are amazing. Before, I could tell bass problems existed in my mixes, but lacked the ability to fix the problems. Now I can hear the bass spectrum in greater detail and clean up the mud with precision. Mixes are leaving the studio sounding great the first time. The frustration of sitting in the studio for hours only to be disappointed when the mix moves to a commercial system is gone. As an added bonus, the clarity across the spectrum allows me to fine tune the timbre of instruments to get really ballsy sounding guitars, drums, and mid-range bass guitar. Making and listening to music is fun again!

Awesome headphone

I am loving these!. They have an awesome bass. I like how realistic they sound. No amplifier needed. No ear fatigue. I fought that I will have a problem with the coiled cable, but so far so good, no issues! I would totally recommend these for Monitoring, mixing, or just playing.

Too good to be true?

I'm just blown away seriously! The response of these headphones is truly simply amazing. The way it responds with the High and Mid frequencies is priceless and I have never seen any other headphones do it. The lows are extremely precise and truly make your overall mix and stereo image sound amazing and very polished. If it sounds good on a DT 990 Pro, then it sounds good anywhere. Speechless!

very comfort

dt 990 has a warm and full band frequency output( I like its bas response) .you can use it for longtime works without hearing fatigue.has vary comfort and friendly design. but too good for monitoring or judgement??? I don`t think so!! It can`t show your coldness and harshness of your digital mixes i think !! however best headphone ever i seen for mixing and composing(if you want to mix and compose with your labtop in a cofee shop or jungle or..!!HAHAHA) many thanks beyerdynamic...
