Lovely wide soundstage and even with a slightly warm amp it makes the headphone sound so much better - I'd love to try any 990 variant with a Little Dot MK III - someday they will be mine! For me though the mids are the best part, they are recessed sounding compared to the bass and treble but this can work in it's favor if not for all kinds of music (show me 1 headphone that suits all genres perfectly anyway) but the mids themselves are relaxed yet very detailed. These are without question the best headphones for movies and immersion gaming for the money in my opinion and it's a no brainer for those purposes. And you'll be well catered for if you listen to music which features significant low end.
My only criticism of the DT 990 Pro is that they don't seem to stand up well to constant daily use. However this may not be true of the Premium versions.
I owned mine for nearly 7 years.Dropped em about 1000 times I reckon as the coiled cable loved to wrap around my desk chair and every time I went back to sit in it,the phones would crash to the floor.
That happened about 3 times a week I reckon and they lasted nearly 7 years.
For comfort and build quality,I can't find one better.
Getting another set ASAP.
Got withdrawal symptoms without em.
