Pros: Accurate Bass, Lush Midrange, Comfort, Build Quality, Nice Soundstage
Cons: Treble Lacks Some Detail
I reviewed the 32 ohm version of the DT990 Premium Open headphones and I have to tell you it was a joy.
I'll touch on the major points here but if you want to see my full video review or read my written review, you can head over to the link below....
Briefly, here's what I loved about the DT990 Premiums. First, they might be the most comfortable set of headphones I've ever put on my head - yes, even better than the T1's or Beyerdynamic's other high end sets! The build quality is incredible and the midrange is probably the best you can get on a set of headphones in the $300's. The prices seem to be all over the board when you look around on Amazon - the best deals seem to be on the 250 ohm versions and that's probably what I'd go for anyways considering even the 32 ohm version really needs an amp to bring out its full potential. The bass is detailed and slightly boosted over normal, and really the only weak spot is the treble - it's good, but it doesn't have the ability to reproduce the finest levels of detail that I've grown accustomed to (even in cheaper headphones such as the ATH-M50's).
