Known for their supreme comfort and crystal clear sound quality, the Beyerdynamic DT series may seem hard to improve upon, but a custom paint job does just the trick. Swapping out for an all-black color scheme, a genuine leather headband and an oceanic accent turquoise ring, a pair of Beyerdynamic DT Custom Mods will have you rocking superior sound and stunning style.

This drop is for a Manufaktur DT 990 600 Ohm version designed by the Massdrop community. Quantity is limited to 18 units.
As the construction is nearly the same between the models, we’ll skip right to the sound. There are many things to love about the DT990 sound, but if you’re a fan of the low end, you’ll be too engrossed to notice much else. Powerful and booming without blowing out, bass parts grow from background accompaniments to featured players, resonating with all depth and clarity you’ve been craving. As for the rest of the range, the highs are forward sounding and the mids are a little recessed, making for the perfect complement to that basshead bonanza. Throughout the entire range, the extra-wide soundstage brings you excellent instrument separation and near ideal sound imaging.
Handcrafted in Germany, the build quality on these headphones is second to none. This is also the lightest headphone in it's class at 290g (.64 pounds), so hours of use will induce little to no fatigue. Armed with a plush carrying case, the DT 990 Manufaktur is ready to go wherever you do.
Domestic orders will be shipped by the vendor.
Estimated ship date is Oct 22, 2015 PT.
