The DT990 is more full bass & full treble, they overshadow the mids a little, but vocals are clear.

I like to think of the DT990 as having a great "movie theater" like sound.

I know zero about the DT250s

How would you compare your DT990 to your A900X? I've never seen those two compared.

The ATH-A900X are great sounding headphones (at least my my ears), nice balanced audio, no weakness in the audio.

But the springs that work the wings are not firm enough, the A900X's cups slide down a little and rest on the tops of my ears,

not really uncomfortable, more like annoying that you have to spend too much time sliding the cups back up.

 

Also the A900Xs can't great really loud plugged into my A/V receiver, no matter how high I turned the volume up.

They still sound good, just can't get loud.

 

These two problems made me want to return them, but I lost a few odd pieces of the packaging,

and I did not want to have to pay a restocking fee along with the shipping charge.

worth it to just keep them around for more testing and maybe sell them off in the future.

 

But plug the A900Xs into my O2 amp and they can get loud (and sound SWEET).

I did NOT like the A900X at all. Like... AT ALL.

I bought my DT990 pro at amazon when the selling price was almost half to what I need to spend to get one here in my country, Singapore..

I thought it was one little marvel and in some way under-rated compared to DT880 pro at the same impedance.. Auditioned DT800 pro before and it was just too flat to my personal liking.. It was the lesser bass compared to DT990 pro that bothers me... But i guess it's the lower price that was a factor also in me choosing DT 990 pro too.. tongue.gif

For the lack of mids, yes.. But a tube amp can help to pull in the mids ever so well and overcome this limitation.. On a solid state amp it just sounded too harsh and narrower soundstage in my setup..

What is the difference between the DT770 Pro and the DT770m?

I believe the DT770m is designed for drummers, they do not seem to be very popular.

The DT770M has better isolation, but worse sound quality and comfort. It is generally only recommended if isolation is the most important, and you do not want to use an IEM. Otherwise, just get the DT770 Pro (80 or 250 Ω), which sounds better according to those who tried both, has velour ear pads and lower clamping force, and still isolates reasonably well.

Well I would also add that for some people the bass is to much on the Dt 990 [it's a Bass Head approved can so YAY]

 

Non the less it's nice to hear that a tube amp can add those mids back... but when your cranking some EDM the mids and the Highs already drown out the mids so no big worries <3

 

Still though the dt 880 is MUCH more balanced than the Dt 990 hence is why it cost more [I think] although the dt 880 pro 250 are $240 where as the dt 990 Pro 250 is $170, so $70 differeance and the CHeapest 990s are a little heavier on the bass than the Preium [or expensive] 990s. 

 

Still though super excited to get a pair of 990 Pros myself :D

The DT880 Pro is also packaged with a carrying case that costs 20 when bought separately, so that is partly responsible for the price difference. The headphone itself is more similar to the premium version as well than the DT990 Pro.

I never understood why the DT880 Pro got the special treatment over the 770 and 990 in terms of the Pro versions. The DT880 Pro keeps the sexy grills, while the 770 and 990 get some cheap looking outer cups/grills. They're better looking than the Premium model, IMHO. Never liked the metal tabs on the Premium Beyers, and the black aesthetics are better than the silver....

I actually like them both really, I like the Black grillz on the 990 my self. the contrast conveys visually what the driver conveys audibly... CONTRAST lol, deep lows and Hot Highs! Which I've got my Xb's Eq'd about that way right now lol, kill them mids crank up that bass and them highs xD and I be rolling wid some Di .fm Dubstep [I'm a preium member to thankfully!]

 

Anyways, still looking forward to getting the Dt 990s... just wish I was not so broke e.e any one wanna lend me a pair :D I'll give you a nintendo Game Cube as collateral <3

So I decided that I don' care which of the Beyers I get. I'm going to just buy the cheapest one I can find a deal on when I get the money for them. Maybe leaning more towards the 990.

Just wanna give a head's up. Currently have two DT990 600ohms, and they sound slightly different. One has more bass and warm, the other is cleaner sounding and more balanced, but dry in comparison. I chose the warmer, funner one.

Not that you guys dont already know this, but headphone to headphone variation is nothing new to Beyerdynamic.

They both definitely sound alike, but the difference is noticeable.

I have them both hooked up to my SA-31 (Audio GD, not Vincent Audio...lol) which has two 6.3mm inputs. No matter what I did, it was easy to tell which was which.

Is there realy a lot of diference between the beyer's DT880 250 ohms and 600 ohms version?

That means, enough for me to realy like one and hate the other?
