Product Description
While many headphones make you choose between an open- and closed-back construction, the Beyerdynamic DT880 and DT990 split the difference with a semi-open design that allows for increased airflow and a wider soundstage. They bring full depth and excitement to the entire range, with a smooth, extended treble; a transparent, detailed midrange; and a punchy, layered bass Read More

Let me preface this; I am a total newb when it comes to the audiophile arena. I am waiting on an amp/sdac from Drop to arrive before I delve more into being an audiophile. Ok, I purchased the dt990. AWESOME cans. Usually, I would spend about 30-45 USD on IEM's. Rated power, frequency response, etc etc. These are a SIGNIFICANT improvement over most of the IEM's I have. None of the IEM's I have approach the clarity, crispness, or comfort to these cans. I have only had them for less than 24 hours and they are awesome. I do have a pair of Sennheiser 4.50 btnc's, but like the IEM's, it would not be really fair to compare them to the dt990's. IEM's are usually lower impedance and are powered easier, and BlueTooth headphones, well, it is a different connectivity. When I do plug the Senn's in, they do not match the dt990's. Within the first hour of listening to the dt990's, I was hearing things in songs I never heard before. certain signals, errr frequencies, were more noticeable. Either that, or I just don't recall the detail correctly. One of the cons I have noticed, which could be the recording, is there is a clicking at either a certain frequency or point in the song. Could be a defective left can, or it could be the recording I have. Need to experiment more, especially when I get more goodies. Another con, I don't like the light clamping force to my head. It feels too light to me. I like knowing the cans are there. I mean, I don't want a vise, but these are too light by far. Which could be considered a plus for long sessions. As these are my first introductory priced/designed cans into being an audiophile, I hesitate to recommend purchase. But, if you are also new and have just been using OEM/stock/default headphones/IEMs, I would highly recommend them. I think I should shoot myself in the foot, as I have now entered ANOTHER completely expensive hobby/passion. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. As for recommending them, only if the person/friend is wanting to get a step up in their listening experience and also this would be at the correct price/value range. Back to testing/enjoying these cans. Edit: Ooooh, forgot to add: I am currently powering them by my Denon AVR-1312 A/V receiver. I will also test them with my phone and PC when I have the time. Edit the second: Ok, After initial stages of "puppy love", I have another con to add. I suppose I have a larger than normal head, or my ear lobes dangle farther than most people. The cans do not extend enough to be fully comfortable over my ears. They tend to press my lobes up quite a bit(about an eight of an inch). I was hoping to be completely happy with these cans without modding them. These cans have a significant (read:noticeable) drain on my phones battery. There is less drain when using my Drop EDC IEM's. They also don't sound quite as "good" when using my phone vs. using my Denon receiver(as expected).
