I normally use a pair of Sennheiser HD600 headphones and I enjoy the sound they produce. I listen to mainly classical music but not exclusively. As I am something of an amateur sound recordist I also own a pair of closed back Beyerdynamic DT250's which I find useful.
Now to my problem. The Sennheisers are getting quite old and I've had some reliability issues with them (they needed a repair last year after the loss of one channel). I have started to really like the sound of my DT250's and they compare surprisingly well to the HD600's.
I am looking for an alternative open backed set of headphones for general use. I am attracted to the Beyerdynamic DT990 pro model but am not quite sure what to expect. If they are anything like my DT250's but with a more open sound then I think I'll like them. I am also hoping to gain some improvements in comfort.
The DT990 pro suits my budget and seems to offer what I want. I am tempted to jump in and buy a pair but how will they compare to my Sennheiser's? Any views or comments will be much appreciated.
