post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I was searching the web and realized that there are two editions of the DT 990. 

 

This:

as you can see the first DT 990's grill is silver whereas the second DT is kinda red. the cables are also different...

 

can someone tell me if there is a difference in sound as well ?

dt 990 is available in 4 versions, 32 Ohm, 250 Ohm, 250 Ohm pro and 600 Ohm

http://www.amazon.com/beyerdynamic-990-Premium-32-Headphones/dp/B0024NK344/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1384799195&sr=8-4&keywords=beyerdynamic+dt+990

 

32 Ohm phone can be driven by ipod or laptop

but other versions need a dedicated headphone amp.

They are both DT990 Premium headphones, I'm guessing Beyerdynamic might do minor changes over the past 8 years they have been made, so I'm guessing the two pictures are of DT990 Premiums from difference years of manufacture.

There are three models of DT990s, 32-Ohm, 250-Ohm & 600-Ohm.

I own the Premium 600-Ohm version and it's great for Blu-ray action movies.

Do you know which one is the latest version ?  mine has the copperish grill and is 32 ohm, I bought it from amazon.ca 3 months ago and i really love it.

 

According to the headphone buying guide on this site, this is a mid-range headphone but i think it is way more than that. It kills HD598 for instance...

I know the difference in impedance, I was image-googling and after some comparisons i realized that there are different editions of this headphone as Purpleangel said....My DT990 has copperish grill color while on its box the grills are silverish
