    Product Description

    The DT 990 PRO is an open dynamic headphone of exceptional quality suitable for the most demanding professional and audiophile applications. The reduced weight of the diaphragm and moving coil result in a similar pulse characteristic as electrostatic headphones, and in combination with a carefully tailored frequency response offer a natural and balanced sound. Soft ear pads and adjustable, sliding, earpieces together with a very flexible coiled cable ensure listening comfort during extended periods of use.

    Here's What Beyerdynamic Say About the DT990 PRO Headphones


    • 250 ohms impedance for studio applications thanks to their transparent, spacious, strong bass and treble sound
    • The soft, circumaural and replaceable velour ear pads ensure high wearing comfort
    • Hard-wearing, durable and robust workmanship
    • Practical single-sided cable (3.0 m coiled cable)
    • Made in Germany

    The Studio Legends

    For decades now, professional users all around the world have placed their trust in our classic range: DT 770/880/990 PRO. These benchmark-setting studio headphones, available in three different models, boast extremely detailed resolution and very transparent sound.

    The DT 990 PRO headphones is the range’s open-back model offering impressive spaciousness.

    Benchmark For Studio Sound

    These open-back studio headphones are a reliable tool for any sound enthusiast. The wide stereo image and three-dimensional sound reproduction make the beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO headphones a loyal companion for producers.

    Outstanding tonal depth ensures that even small changes in the positioning of the acoustic source can be perceived while mixing.

    Incredible Spaciousness

    The circumaural headphones with their open-back design provide exceptional spaciousness and detailed tonal depth. Their mild bass and treble boost ensures a pleasant  sound. The bass is not overstated but rather precise and the treble boost is powerfully present without sounding sharp.

    Extreme ​​​​​​​Comfort​​​​​​​

    The single-sided cable allows the headphones to be put on and taken off frequently without cables getting tangled, and soft, adjustable ear cups provide for added comfort. The robust spring steel headband design ensures that the over-ear headphones also offer a secure fit.

    Difference Compared To The DT 990 Edition Version

    The DT 990 Edition headphones for use at home and the DT 990 PRO studio headphones: Soundwise, both models are identical as they feature identically designed acoustic transducers.

    There are fundamentally two differences between the models. Firstly, the Edition models have a softer headband for enjoying music at home whereas the PRO headset has a slightly firmer fit. Secondly, the Edition models come equipped with a straight cable whereas the PRO models come with a coiled cable.

    Made In Germany

    As with all beyerdynamic professional studio headphones, the DT 990 PRO headphones are handcrafted in Germany. The materials and component parts used are made by hand and can be replaced if necessary.

    Superb reference headphones. Immensely comfortable, wide open, deep, rich accurate, non-fatiguing sound - nothing to not love here ! If there was one small criticism it would be the non removable cable, which means whole set needs replacing if that ever fails.
