    Product information "Beyerdynamic DT990 - 32 Ohm"

    The DT 990 Edition is a headphone that has been in the hearts of many hi-fi and music lovers since the 1980s. For many years it has been convincing with its lively and natural sound, which is suitable for many musical styles. 
    It has been part of the beyerdynamic portfolio for over 20 years and is still very popular. All components are available as spare parts and make the DT 990 Edition a long-time companion.


    The DT 990 Edition is an open headphone. This means that ambient noise outside the headphones remains noticeable even at higher volume levels. This construction method gives the music a wide stage, a feeling of space that comes close to the enjoyment of music with loudspeakers. The sound is spectacular: pronounced highs and intense basses mate to a perfect fullness of sound. Rock and pop fans especially appreciate this.


    The supple headband and velvety soft ear cushions provide for a wearing comfort "par excellence". The ear pads are known for their breathable and skin-friendly velour. This means that even after a longer period of music enjoyment, there is no excessive heat development.
    The combination of a comfortable headband, ear cushions and aluminium handset forks gives the headphones a sturdy appearance and a comfortable fit for long listening sessions.


    The DT 990 Edition headphones for home use and the DT 990 PRO studio headphones: Both sound identical. The identical transducers are used. However, the Edition models have a slightly softer temple for the enjoyment of music at home, while the Pro handsets sit a little tighter on their heads to stay there in the studio even with faster movements. The PRO version is also supplied with a spiral cable and the Edition version with a stretched cable.


    The quality promise "Made in Germany" starts with the high quality components. The next step involves handcrafting in Germany, where the product is manufactured with care and attention to detail. Finally, our products are characterized by their long service life, as many individual parts are interchangeable and replaceable.

    Excellent robust and comfortable

    -- Show original --

    In their price range they are a reference: timbre without colors, detailed and delicate at the same time. The audio band extremes actually seem emphasized (mostly the lower frequencies), but nothing that cannot be easily adjusted according to personal taste. Despite the abundant plastic (like all competitors) they appear very robust, but in case of "accidents" practically all spare parts are available, as for a "pro" product. Confirmed the great comfort typical of circumaural headphones, long listening sessions do not tire. After the 250 Ohm ones I purchased this second 32 Ohm pair for my son, who uses them with phone and tablet: his friends borrow them from him ...

    A headphone with a clean sound, recommended

    -- Show original --

    The DT 990-32 Ohm is ideal for an Ipod by volume. The music appears soft and not too aggressive. It dissolves the space well. The fit is good and the half-open earpiece makes it appear more free than a closed system. You can really recommend the handset.

    Good product

    You have to get used to the weight, which is still substantial. The sound quality is neutral, would lack a bit of panache (listening from a laptop).
