if you are considering the open high impedance beyer dt-990, I would also look into other open high impedance options offered by sennheiser (such as the open hd598 at $180ish), akg (such as the open q701 at $190 or k702 at $220, or k612 pro at $169).


The AKG K550 is a closed non-portable pair of headphones that are sub-$200 that sound pretty amazing that has a low enough impedance to not require an amplifier.

Forgot to mention that $200 is the budget only for the headphones. I don't mind spending an extra $100-150 on an amp.
