yeah. these.

For reference, I own or have owned DT880/600s, DT770/80s, T90s, HD600s, 598s, 712Pros, and have spent a goodly amount of time with the LCD-2s, HD800s, and the DT1990's big brothers, the T1/v2s. I have been amping the dt1990s with all kinds of stuff, but have found the best synergy with the Beyerdyna...

Recommend a good amp and dac (integrated) for beyerdynamic dt 1990 pro


The rabbit hole has started.

This was my first set of headphones. About $2,000 later now, I'm at Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro's with Dekoni Pads, Schiit Audio Modius and Asgard 3.


Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro Review

In the pro department, we're also fans of the less expensive Sennheiser HD6 Mix, the Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro, and the in-ear Etymotic ER4 XR—all solid options that bring unique strengths to the table. The Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro is a solid pair of headphones for engineers, delivering a detailed, accurate frequency response capable of reaching down for deep lows in the mix.

If you are willing to stretch the budget a bit, the Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro exactly meets the criteria (I'm assuming you are including tax in the 500$, but if you are not, then they actually fit into the budget).


Beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO

The Beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO are great, well-built critical listening headphones. They have the most premium look and feel of all the Beyerdynamic models that we've tested so far, and they're a durable, sturdy option that should last you a while.

I have a big skull, too. For EDM, and with a reasonable V-shape, I recommend the Beyerdynamic DT 1770 Pro or the Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro. These also do other genres just fine.


Beyerdynamic DT-1990 Pro Review - Trebling Sound

As the DT 1990 Pro so yeah sounds: sujin imaging fantastic instrument, separation, a little lacking, but you know, I'm still good dynamics is another department where I think the DT 1980 Pro performs really. Well. I mean this is a punchy headphone, like you

Desktop (and only) setup:

iFi Audio Zen Stack (DAC v2 into CAN) => Beyerdynamic 1990 Pro

One other headphone (so far): Beyerdynamic 770 Pro (250 ohm)


This is it. (For a specifc crowd)

Where do I even begin. Build Quality- The germans did it. This feels like a headphone that would outlast every other pair I have, even my polished Z7s. Accessories- Comes with 2 cables. A short coil cable, and a long straight cable. No balanced connector, but I’ll explain why it isn’t even necessary...

A true hero?
