How do these compare to the Beyerdynamic DT990 pro? Is it worth the extra "1" in front of the 990?

To answer my own question, it absolutely is. The 1990’s blow the 990’s out of the water. P.S. anybody want to buy some used 990’s?

Last week's flurry of sale prices is gone. As of this afternoon (22 Dec 2020) the lowest price from an authorized US dealer is $515 at HHGregg. A couple are at $550 (like Sweetwater, with exemplary customer service and return policies); others get the usual $600 retail. (Official dealers are listed on the BD website. Be leery of low prices on the web; e.g., Amazon is authorized but many of their sellers are not.) Not sure what Drop is thinking here; perhaps BD would not alter the product to enable a lower price. But even at full retail, these headphones are worth it, and they retain their value -- just look at used prices online. Many professional producers like me consider them among the best at any price, and possibly the tops under $1K. I agree with two quibbles: high frequencies can be strident with certain music (often a flaw in the content), and the clamping force can be tight at first for some people (it's a feature of the BD "pro" line, so that the cans stay in place during sudden movements). I'll take the drawbacks in return for the overall sterling quality and reference-level sound, especially the glorious but accurate sub-bass, the reason I bought mine. All BD product is made in Germany (no failing Focal drivers). The 1990s are built like tanks; OTOH they can be dismantled and every part replaced, often by the consumer. Other headphones have their attributes, but for professional use the 1990s (and the closed-back 1770s) are possibly unsurpassed.

I bought these on Drop for $450 about a year ago. Definitely had buyer's remorse. Bass response and SPL was nowhere near what I wanted. Spent $800 on planar magnetic headphones (balanced cable), and a much better amp. Now music is exciting to listen to. If you want casual listening and reference listening then these are for you. If you want exciting, loud music, save your money for something better.

I agree with this comment. I love these cans - have the most bass of any open backs I own and it is tight and clear. Maybe the OP got a bad set or he/she LOVES bass - either way, I think they are misrepresenting these cans and what they do.

i just bought the schiit loki eq and upped the bass a little and lowered the treble. now they sound even more amazing and i didnt have to spend a ton extra. also got the dekoni elite sheep skin pads, the hybrids made the bass really muddy so i returned those. the elite sheep skin with the holes is way better.

I suggest Drop stop playing this  5490 Drop Rewards Points trick. You can't earn rewards points when you pay with reward points. We want to see the real price drop, why people want to pay $549 here when other places are selling $439.

Why is this being offered more than what you can get it for on Amazon? Hell, HHGreg has it for 479.99 right now. I thought price point was also the point of Drop along with their own signature models of popular equipment. Sorry Drop. I love my purchases from you so far but this just doesn't make sense.

By the time Drop orders it from Amazon, Aliexpress or Ebay and has it delivered to them, they repackage it and ship it to you six months later how else do you expect them to make any money? Just the cost of keeping the product in their warehouse for six months so you can wait an inordinate amount of time before you get your item ties up their cash flow. As you can see, at the end of the day they are working on razor thin margins. Hey, Drop, do you smell that? It's the aroma of sarcasm.... You would think it would be familiar by now.

It really, really is a pity that DROP does not have a "drop-worthy" price on this, but just the regular SRP.....especially since this is most likely Beyerdynamic's 3rd best can after the T5 & the T1.... But maybe something REALLY is wrong here? Usually the state an SRP within brackets for comparison - not so this time....??!
