Recommendation for headphones <150usd. Will dt990 pro work for me?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have a koss ur40. While I really like the wide and open feel, I am always finding that it is lacking something.

 

Firstly, it lacks bass and the sound is not full, as if there isn't much weight. When the volume is increased, it simply get loud, without the weight. The sound also feels very veiled in contrast to iems. Seperation of placement is also very poor.

 

I currently have a pair of tf10, brainwavz r1, brainwavz m2.

 

The tf10 is close to perfect for me, while the brainwavz m2 is too dark for my preference. The m2 and r1 also lacks the clarity that the tf10 has.

 

So basically, I am looking for a pair of budget headphones which sounds similar to the tf10, but wider. A bit more mid may be welcome too.

 

Doing my research, it seems the dt990 pro fits my budget and supposedly has good bass with slightly exaggerated treble. This sounds like the typical description for a pair of tf10.

 

Will the dt990 pro work for me?

You did your homework the dt990 should perfectly fit that description and is really a steal for the price. To get better you have to sped at least 3x more.

Hello

 

The DT990 will benefit from an amp and it depends on which version you get. Other headphone worth looking into include:

Sennheiser Momentum

AKG K712

 

Hope it helps

I won't recommend the K701. It doesn't fit the entry description. The bass of the K701 is way less prominent than the TF10. Stay with DT990.
