    DT 990 Pro vs DT 880 Pro

    So I got this nifty FR chart and I'm wondering... which is better or rather which is has more accurate sound quality? Ultimatley I'd like one of these two, and I hoping for a neuatrual can with that would be good for most genres like Classical Jazz, Rock, Folk, Accoustic Rock and a little...

    Does the beyerdynamic DT990 premium have a removable cord?

    Pretty much the topic title. I was wondering if they have a removable/replacable cable.

    HD 558 Dull, DT 990 Boomy and Bright, UGH need input

    So I made 2 purchases from amazon after I decided it was time my ATH-M50's became my backup cans. The HD 558's sound very analytical and the mid's can be heard pretty well but they just sound so damn dull although what bass there is seems tight and they are not excessively bright. The DT...

    Anything better than Beyerdynamic DT990 600 for me?

    Looking to get my first audiofile level set of headphones which will be powered off an Asus Xonar STX which should have enough grunt to power most headphones I would have thought. As a side note to all this, open headphones won't be a problem.   Have done a large amount of research, but...

    Fiio E11 necessary for Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO's + ModMic -> MixAmp Pro?

    Main use will be for console gaming (Xbox 360), hence the ModMic and MixAmp; will rarely use with computer, but will use with my iPod (which will be upgraded [likely to a Cowon] sooner or later) on occasion.   It seems the extra power may be needed for running the 990 PRO's along with the...

    If I like the Superlux 681B will I like the Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro w/Fiio E17?

    I haven't had many headphones in the past, but I find my Superluxes to be wonderful for me. Some songs I have to turn down the treble down a little bit/are harsh to listen to (usually albums that are victims of the loudness war, though) and I would prefer a bit more bass, but asides from that...

    Vintage 1990s DT990s - impedance?

    I bought these in Germany, circa 1991-1993.They cost 240 Deutsch Marks :-) In those 20 years, I've had to replace the cable (original was coiled), ear pads (originals were black) and head strap (original was leatherette). Can somebody help me identify which version this is and what impedance...

    Is this normal or does it mean my headphones are screwed up? (BD DT990 premiums, sound is not balanced)

    Alright, so I just got my Beyerdynamic DT990s in the mail. They are the 250 ohm variant, so that is most likely the problem as my headphone amp has not arrived yet. Cranked up to almost max volume, my laptop can get a decent volume out of these, but the bass is only full in the left earcup. It...

    Are Pro 900s worth it over DT990s? Or maybe something different?

    What's up guys? This is my first post. :D I currently own a Fiio E10 and use PC350s with the bass mod.   To start it off, I'll tell you what I'm looking for. These headphones will mainly be playing dubstep or house'ish music. So, I need bass. Lots of bass. But, due to the style of dubstep...

    Close headphones that give me Beyerdynamic DT990 pro's sound????

    Hi Comrades   After seeking satisfying headphones for a long time, I ended up with the Beyerdynamic DT990 pro. However, they are open, and most of the time I use headphones in a library or a student office (require absolutely quietness).   The question is, I'm now interested in...

    Are the DT990s worth it if I own DT880s?

    I noticed a huge price increase in the DT990 600ohm headphones in the last few days.  This wasn't my next planned upgrade as I wanted to get the tube amp first for my DT880s, then fix my mobile situation, then add the DT990s.   As prices fluctuate on Beyers, should I just ignore it, stick to...

    Are my new DT 990 600ohms fried?

    I purchased some DT 990s about 2 months ago, and something doesn't seem right about them.  When listening to them through any device, i can hear a slight popping coming from the left can. Also, when increasing the volume, lower frequency's start to distort really badly. I have a Matrix M...

    A Good DAC / Amplifier for the DT 990 Pro's?

    Hello Head-fi, I recently purchased a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro 250 Ohm headphones and all I can say is that I am astonished with them. However, I am currently running them off of an Asus Xonar DG soundcard and I am nearly certain that I am not getting the full potential out of them, so I...

    Good amp for DT990 Pro 250ohm?

    I'm looking for an amp for my Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro 250ohms. My budget is about 150, don't mind stretching that a bit. All I have for DAC is the onboard sound from my computer, so it'd be nice to get an amp/dac in one. I've been looking at the Fiio E17 or the E7/E9 combo, but other suggestions...
