Okay guys I noticed t hat the sound on my dt990 pro is weak on the right ear and when I listen to lows 20-60 Hz there is a weird rattle ONLY in the right ear. Just got these headphones too. Should I RMA for a replacement ? I have tried on multiple sources and amps same results.

Seems like the driver is messed up. I'd exchange it for a new pair.

post #215 of 533
Yeah the driver is gone, get a new pair.

I got a pair of DT990s several days ago, I'm very very pleased with them!

Venturing cautiously, I ordered a used pair of 990/250 Pro online (reputable dealer). Look forward to trying them out with my X3, and occasionally with a receiver.. I had a pair of ATH-AD700 I sold. Very nice cans and comfortable as long as you did not move around too much, otherwise too bulky. Even moderate use on an elliptical was too much for them.I still have IE's for travel, etc.(...yeah, time for a new avatar...)

The 990s are just over a 100 which I felt was a fair price including an ok return policy and a '9' on the condition scale. They should be broken in and it will just me adjusting to them. We shall see! Impressions to follow!

I had some concern ordering 'used' phones, but not as much had they been shoes. :)

The DT 990s are going to be horrible if you try using them on an elliptical, just saying.

OH on that... I committed my IE's for the machine, jogging, etc. The 990s will get mostly stationary use, but hopefully not feel like extra baggage when I just walk across a room.

I have the premium model so I can't comment on if the pro model is also like this. But on mine they fit rather loosely which is great for long listening sessions but probably not the best for movement. 

post #222 of 533
The Pros have slightly higher clamping force however it shouldn't be a problem and it also means they stay on the head while moving, in my experience.
post #223 of 533

I don't expect much of a problem. The ATH-AD700s were really oversize and bulky feeling although still quite comfortable they never felt normal unless you weren't moving. Others I've tried on seem fine in that regard even if the clamping force was not ideal (too much or not quite enough).

post #224 of 533
The extra clamp also adds some bass which may be favourable to some people. It also tightens the soundstage, but I'm not prepared to pay £100 for less bass which I don't want and a little extra soundtsage.

Compared with many other branded topics, there does not seem to be much here on mods for the DT 990. I expected more cable mods, while the stock

pads seem to be liked by most.

Good advice on not 'wrapping the cord'. Although guilty myself, I generally wind them very loosely around the cans so no stress but keeping

them from getting tangled elsewhere. Keeping in mind that cables are often the cause of intermittent problems in electronics
