 I think burn in is an absolute fact. When I got my headphones back after a driver replacement they sounded what can only be described as 'cloudy' and NOT the headphones I remembered, gave them a few hours continuous play and the next day they were back to how I always remember them - no cloudiness in the high end, clear, detailed, punchy.
 I agree with this. Either save money or go for it properly. Anything in between with the 990s is a waste IMO.
 In a word, yes. Actually that's a definitive hell yes...  For gaming immersion I honestly don't think you'll find anything better full stop let alone for the price. Same for movies. As these are open backed and good bass and clarity you will feel like you're there like no other.
These headphones were made for movie lovers and gamers imo. For those purposes it's surely a gargantuan task to top these at the price....If you like some bass and clarity in your music with detailed vocals these are a brilliant option! I've applied an EQ on my music player for these headphones with a pretty big reduction at 6 khz (I'd say about 8 decibels maybe) and it works really well for me - takes away a lot of the harsh 'ring' sounds that you get on music and seems...
Lol I forgot to mention that they're extremely comfy with the fur-like velour ear pads! Open backed with strong bass.Heaps of clarity. It's really a spot on headphone and for the money I'd like someone to show me something all around better....
 Then you've picked a spot on headphone for you because these sound just like a movie theatre speaker. And they're not nearly as bass heavy as the Koss Porta Pro. But they're bright too and very detailed in the mids so basically you get lots of clarity and the bass depending on the music can give some growl but imo it's not overly dominant as to be only bass but it's in my opinion that these supply enough bass to let you know it's there which to some is too much but that's...
I find for gaming in general that the Beyer DT 990 Pro that I own is damn near perfect for that, and for movies too they are in my opinion bloody faultless! It's music where these can be a bit harsh and too treble tipped, I've just recently applied slight EQ on the bass and treble frequencies with a decent reduction at the 6khz range which went down a storm as it retains the openness and detail plus the somewhat natural sibilance of S words but it takes away the excessive...
 Definitely improves with a little bit of time, mine from new sounded rough. But within a few hours they settled down brilliantly and became much clearer and tighter in general and the cloud was gone. 
Regarding the burn in which was mentioned in the previous page, I believe it's a fact. I've personally experienced differing sounds from the same headphone (2 separate pairs) with vastly differing levels of general use (1 hardly used vs 1 used constantly) and there was a distinct difference. Also when I had my pair of DT 990 Pro headphones returned to me from being repaired they sounded, how to put it, very very rough! Really cloudy sounding in general and I remember...
  My expectations aren't that great, as long as it sounds clean, balanced and good to me then I'm happy. Besides I don't have any speakers at the moment 100% headphones right now so it'll be nice to have some speakers for my small 'studio' room.
