The Beyerdynamic DT 990 (32 Ohm) is a headphone pair for music lovers looking for an accurate, crisp sound signature that delivers deep bass without exaggerating it.

  • +

    Superb audio performance with an accurate response across the board. Well-cushioned and comfortable over long listening periods despite its large frame.

  • -

    Hardwired cable. Bulky frame not for everyone.

Aesthetic options, good audio quality. Fit issues are significant, cost more than they should.

i've been using these headphones for almost a week now and i can say that this are the most comfortable headphones i have ever put on! the ear pads are made of this very soft material that makes the headphones feel like clouds and still be snug on your head.

First let me say that I own many great headphones including the ATH-M50 and AH-D2000. I also use a Grace m903 for most of my headphone testing as I find it a neutral sounding amp. I was looking for a headphone to compliment my AH-D2000's both in design and sound signature.

Great clarity, dynamic range and frequency response. The best deal I saw on the 32 ohm models. No problems with this unit.

Awesome comfort! The frequency response is very good.

    The only thing I didn't like was the 9ft cable. It's not detachable and really long if using with Mobile device.

Ok lets get one thing straight, these are one of the few headphones that have a realistic and unaccented bass/sub response- something that really gets on my nerves with cheaper models.

These are the legendary headphones. Technically there is no match for this in its price range or beyond. Only thing people have to decide according to sound signature. Please go for 32ohms if you use for mobile or portable players. It just perfect with portable players.

Excellent headphones, use with the Creative SoundBlaster E5 headphone amp.

These headphones sound great, will good frequency range and clarity. The bass has great extension and articulation although the open back design means the sound is airy and so not for bassheads. Mids and high frequencies are well articulated and spaced, with air around them..

Great sound taught me what sound stage is, very quiet for headphones (tried various amps no luck) and by far the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn but due to volume levels and clipping at not even that loud of volumes they weren't right for me.

Great sound quality from these and comfortable although not the best for wearing for long periods at a time
