The Open-Back Benchmark for Studios

Used by producers, musicians, and audiophiles across the globe, Beyerdynamic headphones have a history of top-notch sonic performance. At the pinnacle of the brand’s open-back options, the DT 1990 PRO is no different. Handcrafted in Germany, these high-resolution headphones are equipped with 45-millimeter Tesla neodymium dynamic drivers to deliver transparent highs, richly detailed mids, and precise bass frequencies. Surrounding the drivers, titanium-coated acoustic fabric and precision-woven textiles optimize durability while controlling resonance. Together with the DT 1990 PRO’s innovative open-back design, these components create an impressively natural soundstage. Complete your setup with two types of included velour earpads: one for recreational listening and one for analytical listening.

@Boss302 I mostly agree with the review from @SpeleoFool. Here are my thoughts after a little over a week of listening. Equipment Used: Mostly Topping D70 DAC into THX AAA789. Sometimes Topping DX7s DAC/Amp combo. One is connected to my work PC and the other to my personal PC. Music Source: Tidal (HiFi subscription) I listen to a wide range of music, so a few artist tracks I picked. A lot of listening was done to my regular playlist, so these are just a few tracks I picked to test various things. Take It From Me (iTunes Sessions) - The Weepies Bye Bye - Gryffin, Ivy Adara 3AM - Matchbox 20 Unframed - Ill Nino Gyroscope - In Flames Remember Everything - Five Finger Death Punch All To Well - Taylor Swift Do you Mean - The Chainsmokers, Ty Dolla $ign, Bulow The World I Know - Collective Soul White, Discussion - Live Positions - Ariana Grande Cry Dancing - NOTD, Nina Nesbitt Plowed - Sponge Here We Are - Ferry Corsten, HALIENE Worlds Away - 3LAU, Emma Hewitt Best I Can - Art of Dying Christian Woman - Type O Negative Stay the Night - ZEDD, Hayley Williams Elex (compared to DT1990) More "spacious" Bass level is more prominent, but does not hit as hard Guitars are way more "forward" and in your face Much more separation of instruments / wider soundstage Vocals are not as forward/loud Treble not as "harsh" No noise isolation from the external environment, much more noise comes in Much easier to drive Sound better at moderate to loud volume levels, not as great at lower volumes (probably due to external environment noise coming in) My current feeling is that I like both headphones a lot. They are very different and excel at different times and with different music types. Elex - rock, county, acoustic music, pop - the better pick. OK with dance and trance music styles and metal. DTC1990 - probably my pick for dance, trance and metal music style. Overall, I think I am leaning to toward the Elex taking the lead overall for the improved separation and more "neutral sound" for most listening. However, I think the DT1990 is the clear winner at lower volume levels. The increased treble and "harder hits" of the bass along with the better sound isolation are a big advantage when listening at lower volumes. Regarding the DT1990 treble. Never bothered me, still does not. However, I can say I notice it as I have been adapting to the Elex. I also have Senheiser HD6XX - DTC1990 and Elex both blow those out of the water. I do not dislike them, but the "veil" of the vocals is really prevalent to me. Sounds like people are signing through a piece of cellophane.
