Does anyone know how these compare to the beyerdynamics dt 990 premium?
I need something for gaming and for music listening exclusively on my PC. I listen to indie, rock, rap and classical.
I'm told these have a "boring" sound signature and are not good for gaming, while the dt 990 are bass heavy and good for gaming, but fatiguing to listen to due to ear piercing highs. Also, I read that the dt 990 are more comfortable.
I'm confused because it seems like the dt 990 are better for my use, but these seem like such a better value overall
I own both and would say that either one would work for your needs. The DT 990 are not bass heavy (if you want bass get the DT 770). The 990 is more open and airy then the 6xx but I would say the 6xx have a more natural sound. More balanced.
The 6xx (HD 650) is far from boring. You could easily spend two days reading and watching glowing reviews on this tried and tested headphone. You won't find a better open headphone anywhere near this price range.
Both are very comfortable but I'd give the 990s one extra point for the ear pads.
Hope this helps.
