From the Manufacturer

Velour earpads make long periods of extended listening easy on the ears. View larger
600 Ohm Version - Designed for High-End Audio Applications

This is the 600 ohm version of the DT 990 Premium line, designed explicitly for high-output usage and headphone amplifiers. Conventional headphones with lower impedance ratings offer higher volumes at the same level of input, but need heavier drivers to compensate for low impedance or risk sounding muddy and distorted. The lower mass of the drivers of a higher-impedance headphone delivers unparalleled clarity and response, but takes more power to achieve the same loudness. So a higher-impedance headphone such as the 600-ohm DT 990 is ideal for use in high-end applications, where clarity and dynamic response are paramount, as well as for use with convenient headphone amplifiers like the beyerdynamic A1.

The beyerdynamic DT 990 Headphones
Hear every note, every beat, and every detail just as it was intended

A gold plated 3.5 mm stereo jack with 1/4" inch adapter is included.

Open, On-Ear Design with Velour Earpads

The DT 990 features an open-back circumaural (over-the-ear) design for rich audio performance that's designed for critical listening. The open design of the headphones allows increased fidelity to the original recording and a more natural sound stage. The driver design of the DT 990 gives your music full reign, with natural response and crisp linearity. You'll hear every note, every beat, and every detail just as the artist originally intended.

Dynamic Transducer for Increased Fidelity and Performance

Without exception, beyerdynamic manufactures the dynamic transducer systems that go into their headphones in-house. From the magnet and diaphragm to the careful wiring and circuitry, beyerdynamic controls quality at all levels of manufacturing, ensuring superior engineering in their headphones down to the smallest detail.

An extremely strong neodymium magnet system offers the DT 990 highly detailed sound reproduction quality, and is mechanically very robust. This increased efficiency also leaves the DT 990 with greater power reserves for precise linear response that is especially suited for high-performance audio applications where precise audio reproduction is the most important consideration, and dedicated equipment is available such as a headphone amplifier. The large 600-ohm voice coil provides unrivaled response clarity and maximum impulse fidelity.

The DT-990 Pro is an excellent headphone.
Jason Parrish
Extremely comfortable; I wear them for hours every day and I don't feel right sitting at my computer without them on my head!
Nicksta92
The bass is punchy and therefore very natural sounding, as are the mids and highs.

Size Name: 250 OHM Pro
Before buying these headphones I compared them to offerings from Grado (the Sr325i) and Sennheiser (HD595). As soon as I heard music through the Beyerdynamic Dt990's the other headphones suddenly seemed like a distant afterthought.

There are two versions of this headphone. The "Pro" model which is obviously marketed toward studio use and the "premium" model which is a slightly different design marketed for consumer use. Assuming you compare similar impedence models (i.e the 250 ohm model in both cases) then they are exactly the same headphone except for the pro having a coiled cable and slightly higher clamping force (and cosmetic differences).

For over $100 less, I went with the "Pro" model and I am truly impressed. Let me break it down:

Build Quality: 9.5/10
Before I knew these were made in Germany I suspected it. Even though the cups are plastic, it's a VERY rigid plastic that's carefully cut and molded in shape. You could probably stomp on these and they'd survive. There's a very substantial aluminum "fork" that connects the cups to a steel headband structure that allows for quite a bit of articulation so that you can obtain a precise fit. My only complaint is that the coiled cable is... a little annoying sometimes. It can catch on basically any angled surface with ease. In studio use I can imagine a coiled cable would be invaluable in preventing accidentally ripping a piece of equipment off the shelf so I won't penalize it too much.

Comfort: 9.5/10
These headphones are like having stuffed animals cuddling with your ears. They feature these really nice velour earpads that make you feel like you're wearing earmuffs. The reason that I took .5 off is because the "Pro" version has a really high clamping force.

Size Name: 250 OHM Pro
Length: 7:22 Mins
This is my video review on the Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro (250 ohm) headphones. Although it is not conclusive in itself, it should help you to understand a little bit more about this model of headset. Personally I do not believe there is a better headphone on the market anywhere near this price range. I have worked in broadcasting for 30 years and have been using and have owned many pairs over the years so I would say I have a fairly good background for giving an honest opinion. I did not mention any other manufacturer's models because there are a lot of very good headphones on the market and comparing them is personal to how you like to listen to music and what sounds best to you. I chose not to downgrade another manufacturer just because I like these more.

To the best of my knowledge the DT990 Premium is the same headset except for the all aluminum body, straight cable and contoured foam case. There are some audio engineers that claim they have a different sound but without the electronic equipment to test them I do not think you will know the difference. If the extra money is not an issue with your budget I also recommend those. The brushed aluminum looks very sharp and a padded case would be a nice to have, especially if you travel with them.

If you have any questions please post them and I will reply. Comments are welcomed too. There is a slight chance I misspoke or said something wrong so if I did please let me know. I will add corrections in this space.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Size Name: 600 OHM Verified Purchase
Hi all, Zombie_X from Head-Fi here with another review! This won't be as in depth as the T1's review but I will give you all the needed info.

The Beyerdynamic DT990 sound can be classified as being very treble oriented with slightly recessed mids (will get to that later) and having throbbing bass.

TREBLE:
I find the treble on the DT990/600Ohm to be slightly smoother than the 250Ohm model. In comparison the 250Ohm models treble is quite prominent with more of an edge to it. It's very extended and crystalline in it's presentation while also being for in your face than the DT880. Because of the enhanced treble response, songs may have a harsher sounding treble with emphasis on the S and T sounds. It is still quite extended like the previous model.

MIDRANGE:
The DT990 has a more shallow sounding midrange in comparison to the DT880, but in fact the elevated treble/bass makes it sound thinner. It's still the great midrange that the DT880 had though it's a bit more detailed and perhaps a tiny bit more resolving. Because of the added treble it does indeed make the mids seem pulled back. In my eyes the DT880's sound more forward and more lifelike.
