@Brandon123 & @SFS_Dominik : Many would say the DT990 *Pro* Limited Edition phones are a lesser pair of phones compared to the DT990 Premium's being offered here by MassDrop or elsewhere. I've also read of imbalanced drivers in the Pro LE's, and the Pro model is reported to heavy extremely heavy bass. So IMO, the "Pro" designation is a misnomer, which I'd say is reflected in the price. I'd buy the (more expensive) Premiums if I were in the market. And sure, these 250-ohm or 600-ohm Premium All Blacks basically the same price as found on Amazon...but they're All Black! Which is pretty sweet. Which I had some cash to spare; fortunately, my DT250 250-ohm cans are serving me well.

Sure, but if you're in the market for the 250- or 600-ohm cans (which are preferable if you have an amp to drive them), this is a deal worth looking at if "all black" is appealing.

I've had the DT990 Pro LEs for about a year now and can't complain about them, I don't recognize any imbalanced drivers and whether the bass is to heavy or just right depends on the individual, in my opinion the bass is perfect. Sorry for my bad english.

Nice to hear your first-hand feedback, and good to know you're happy with the Pro model. I'll admit I haven't heard either the Premium or Pro model; my knowledge is only based on reviews I've read. Cheers!

Or simply use a Frequency Generator like http://onlinetonegenerator.com/, set it to 30Hz, max Volume and Turn it on ;D. Pure Bass.

That track is not for bass, it's for checking sibilance. Unless you know the exact frequency values for peaks in your headphones, finding harshness can be impossible with the frequency generator.

The pro and premiums use identical drivers, the difference is purely cosmetic. Also, as open headphones neither of them have anything even approaching heavy bass, let alone "extreme". Get a review from someone who has actually used them next time, or check head-fi. Also, the all black pro's are £115 on Amazon.

32 ohms is worse, that's why they're cheaper.

Same drivers doesn't necessarily mean same sound, and differences are not only cosmetic. Venting is different, clamping force is different. And the reviews I read did come from Head-Fi, among other "enthusiast" sites. Here's one of several threads I read:
http://www.head-fi.org/t/513393/guide-sonic-differences-between-dt770-dt990-models-more
But, you're right: like I mentioned earlier in the this thread, I haven't heard either model, at least not for any length of time beyond a Head-Fi Seattle Meetup; I've only read a number of reviews from headphone enthusiasts that do have firsthand experience with them. Sounds like you perceived the Pro model to be equivalent to the Premiums, and that's great. It's another vantage point for me to reference. Cheers.
