Let me show you the comparison AKG K712 PRO vs DT 1990 that presents similarities and differences between these open-back devices. They have an over-ear wearing style and can be used only with an audio cable.
First, I have compared their impedance. The model DT 1990 has 250 Ohm, while AKG K712 PRO has 62 Ohm. Speaking of their frequency response, the first device has a range of 5 Hz - 40 kHz and the second one — 10 Hz - 40 kHz. There is only a slight difference in the sensitivity, as AKG DT 1990 has 102 dB, while AKG K712 PRO has 105 dB.
AKG K712 PRO has a very detailed and open midrange. Soundstage, particularly depth is peculiar. The bass sounds natural and the low end on the K712 Pro is deep and full, overflowing with excellent detail.
With regard to the sound of DT 1990, it delivers rich bass depth, detail, and clarity in the highs. The headphones are slightly v-shaped with an enjoyable amount of bass but also some analytical treble energy that gives it a somewhat sterile sound character overall.
Both of the mentioned appliances have an adjustable headband. The detachable audio cable which comes with them is 300 cm long and this might be too long for some. Another thing that makes these headphones not portable is that they do not fold. However, you get a carrying bag whatever device you buy.
There is no built-in or in-line microphone, so the appliances are not suitable for making phone calls. They do not have any buttons for control as well.
The Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro is better headphones in this comparison. Check Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro price
