Premium Headphones

The Beyerdynamic DT990 is a sophisticated headphone designed for audio enthusiasts. Handcrafted in Germany, the build quality on these headphones is second to none. This is also the lightest headphone in it's class at 667g (1.5 pounds), so hours of use will induce little to no fatigue.

Note: This drop is limited to 60 units. At checkout, you will have the option to choose between 250 and 600 Ohm.

Sound Design

All of these factors are great, but the real advantage of these headphones is the sound quality. The sonic reproduction is the cornerstone of Beyerdynamic's design and comes through with forward sounding highs and punchy rich bass response. Detail and soundstage are also among the best available at this price point. Have you ever noticed John and Ringo whispering in the background of a Beatles outro? Have you ever listened to a pair of headphones that let you pick out every instrument in Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture? No? Sounds like you could use some Beyerdynamic DT990s.

Model Differences

A quick word of advice: while the 32 Ohm model sounds great right out of your cellphone's headphone jack, the 250 Ohm model sounds the best with an amplifier, and the 600 Ohm model will not reach a reasonable volume without the help of a serious amplifier. As a trade-off, you'll find that the 250 Ohm model, when driven with an amplifier, just barely edges out the 32 Ohm model in detail and bass refinement.
