These have dropped many times, so I'm confident there will be another drop. Popular headphone.

Entry-level? seriously? DT990 pro is cheap, but it's far from entry-level...

Exactly. People that skip them could never understand how technically good these are, especially for less than $150. I think they see the price and think it has to do anything with their capabilities. They are truly professional headphones, not consumer toys. This is as far as one could go in the chain, and wouldn't be missing anything crucial compared to pricier models. I love mine, and I also own the T90 and Amiron Home. The latter present music differently, but the DT 990 aren't worse-sounding or produce lesser sound quality.

Good stuff, mate. I checked how Amazon Warehouse works and a lot of stuff sold as used is new, but simply the box is damaged. Enjoy!

Yeah, it's mostly abuse of their liberal return policy. I worked returns for Costco several years and greater than 75% of returns is Buyer remorse or just need money to pay bills.

I'm currently using Sennheiser 58X & 6XX for gaming. Would these be worth adding to my collection? I do have the AKG7XX but am not a fan of those for gaming. Thanks!

I've seen the 250 ohm model under $120 on Amazon, brand new. For the 80 ohm model, this is a great price. I wish it came with a case like the drops for the Beyerdynamic Premiums but I don't see any info indicating that, unfortunately.

The Pro 250's tend to be the cheapest across the 770,880,990 line. Although the chrome 880 seems to be pretty cheap most times.

Some recommendations from a DT990 Premium owner...... First, be absolutely certain that you are ok with the strong treble. You won’t notice on most well recorded, audiophile material but any modern, compressed, recordings will make your ears bleed. These are super strong in the sibilant region. If you are sensitive to treble, move along. If you are prepared to deal with the treble or EQ out the 9k spike, these are actually very good headphones otherwise. They are very open, detailed and quite fast. The soundstage tends toward the three blob, left, center, right variety versus a cohesive front soundstage but, for the price, it is hard to complain about the other attributes. As any entry point to audiophile performance, these are a reasonable choice. The other consideration is pro versus premium options. The premium has a much lighter clamp force and is very comfortable for long sessions where the pro might be a little uncomfortable. If you dip your toes in to the audiophile headphone world here, you will eventually buy the HD6XX. It might be one month, two months or six months but eventually you will buy them. The other option is to skip these and go straight to the 6XX.

I agree. These were my first "good" headphone and I quite enjoyed them. Treble is definitely hot, but that can be a benefit for some uses, and can be adjusted like you said. I did eventually get the AKG 7xx, many other "low-fi" and "mid-fi" headphones before finally, yes, settling on the HD 6xx as my main "critical listening" headphone.

I own the HD6XX and the 250 Ohm DT990's. I prefer the 990's on my Asgard 3, 6XX's are great on brighter gear. Asgard 3 takes the sharp edges off the 990's and propel them into a higher league imo.
