Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro review

Let me share with you the results of my testing Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO vs Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro. The series of DT 770/880/990 are the first dynamic headphones that are not worse than electrostats by characteristics.

Both the headphones have the over ear wearing style and are wired. The main difference is the enclosure: Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO has a closed back while DT 990 Pro is open.

Features

The impedance of Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO is 16, 32, 80, 250 Ohm vs open one DT 990 Pro 80, 250.

Other specifications are equal for both models, like frequency response 5Hz-35KHz, the total harmonic distortion of 0.2%, and sensitivity of 96 dB.

Sound

The sound in Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO is very crisp and clean, natural like hearing live. Bass is not exaggerated, sounds in natural combination with middle and high frequencies.

Listening in Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO makes an impression of strong bass and trebles. The low frequencies are voluminous and transparent.

Comfort and design

Both headphones are 360 g, both are made of premium materials.

The headphones are fixed on the leather-padded headband that is easily adjustable with 4 snap-in buttons. The headphones have an exposed wire that connects the left to right ear cup. It is paired with a non-rotating (robust) but plastic clamp that allows the headphone size to be adjusted.
