    Right on time for the IFA trade show in Berlin we complete our professional headphone portfolio
    with an open-back flagship model:

    The DT 1990 PRO.

    As high end reference headphones the DT 1990 PROs take their place alongside
    the closed DT 1770 PRO in the beyerdynamic professional line.

    The DT 1990 PRO reference headphones combine these decades of expertise
    in headphone technology with the latest Tesla driver technology in an open-back design.

    Together with an ingenious open-back design, the high-resolution Tesla drivers ensure a wide,
    dynamic and extremely natural stereo image. Designed for professionals, the DT 1990 PROs
    are the perfect headphones for ambitious listening, mixing and mastering.


    The DT 1990 PRO is having its premiere during the IFA in Berlin, from the 2nd to 7th September 2016.

    I thought it definitely deserved a thread of it's own!  [​IMG]  I'll update this post as more info becomes available.

    I am so very, very excited for this headphone.  This is probably going to be sonic perfection, for myself, at least.

    Subbed, might not be my cup of tea but I'm always very interested in anything Beyerdynamic does.

    If it sounds anything like the DT1770 pro, put me down for one.

    The first time they are being shown is CanJam London next month,
    Look for impressions, I should be able to take a listen next week and let you all know [​IMG]

    Please do. These are being released at roughly the same price the T90s used to go for in the US when they were first released, wonder how they fare.
    PS: Beyerdynamic are so stubborn. First their unconditional love for attached cables, then things got improved upon considerably with their 3.5mm ones on the 2nd gen T1 and T5, now they finally show a mini XLR in the picture...
    aaaaaaaaaaand it's single entry. God damnit Beyerdynamic LOL

    Same as the DT 1770, it means you cannot run them balanced as it is only 3 pin, I think they should have used 4 pin personally.
    But a lot of people mod headphones for dual entry for balanced either way, but it would have been easier to have 4 pin in the first place. I suppose you could just swap the 3 pin out for a 4 pin as they would be the same size.
  14. Vigrith
    For sure they should have, feels like a bit of a waste to have it be 3 pin unbalanced in this day and age, can't imagine having dual entry 4 pins would've been that much more expensive.
    My T90s are modded for dual entry but still, just weird that they don't do it from the get go in their new releases as you said.

    I wonder how the bass quality of this one is. Hopefully (much) better than the DT990 Pro 250 Ohm's which I find to have a rather muddy and slow low-end.
