    I got the open box and I hear crackling in certain frequencies when soloed, particularly distorted guitars in solo. In the mix I don't hear it

      Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO Open Studio Headphones 250 Ohms:

      Coming from closed-back headphones (Sennheiser HD280 Pros), these are amazing! I don't have to worry about ear fatigue! The sound is balanced, flat (the good kind), and very clear. Great separation, which allows you to hear planning effects and placement in the mix. If you're looking for great production/mixing/mastering headphones, you don't need to break the bank. These are it.

        I purchased these headphones for my home studio. I wanted a set of headphones that would provide me with a quality recording. I used these headphones to EQ signals from the various instruments prior to recording and then to EQ the overall recording for a finalized product. the accuracy of these headphones is outstanding.I played the final recordings in various stereo systems in my house and in my vehicle and in my wife's vehicle, and I did not need to make any adjustments to the bass, midrange, or treble settings. These headphones conveyed a more accurate reproduction of my recordings than my monitors.
        Needless to say I am very pleased with them.

          Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO Open Studio Headphones 250 Ohms:

          I bought these for critical listening when mixing and mastering in my home studio. They are much more detailed than my ATH-M30's and more detailed than my Sennheisser HD 280 Pro headphones, as to be expected. With their open back, they have a fantastically better soundstage than both of the others and also the semi-open AKG K240's (I took back for the HD-280's). They do have more precision than the AKG too, which were good but a pain in general to me. The Dt-990 pro does hurt my ears a little in the high freq. sometimes, but I figured that this could only work to my advantage in the long run.
          Although I mainly bought these for more critical listening purposes when using headphones, I sometimes use these when I want to listen to anything with headphones and be able to notice what's going around me more easily.
          They are comfortable to my average sized head and to my listening mind and in many ways have been a dream to use!!! Very nice product.

          Must-Have Cans

          Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO Open Studio Headphones 250 Ohms:

          Great soundstage, almost no distortion, and excellent frequency response make these cans a must-have for their price range. They are open-back design so there is no sound isolation, but this is by design. If you are looking for headphones to wear outside of the home or studio you may want to look elswhere. Also these cans are rated at 250 Ohms so you may need a headphone amp to drive these depending on your source. Other than that it is hard to beat these cans for price - performance ratio.

          In conclusion, these are outstanding cans that reproduce sound very well and should be in any musical application arsenal.

          Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO Open Studio Headphones 250 Ohms:

          I also own the DT770 PRO 80 and the 990 is very similar more bass & treble with the sound advantages of an open headphone . The 990's are awesome, I use them for enjoying music mostly.

          These REQUIRE an amp basically, and if you still have good (sensitive) hearing in the higher frequencies than you will probably find the treble painful.

          For example I have to turn the treble all the way down on my (consumer/home audio) amp just to be comfortable (even after cutting the treble it's still clear as a bell).

          No Freq Bias

          By Eddie

          from NY

          Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO Open Studio Headphones 250 Ohms:

          I got these headphones to mix down some tracks, I know thats not good practice but its really great for the job. Because they are open back they have really good placement (not too wide of a mix) and most importantly they have an extremely flat freq response. All in all I would recommend these headphones for intensive studio work. FYI they are not good for live performance or for DJing because of the flat eq curve, So don't expect them to make the music loud and direct, more like the true sound needed to mix down a track, also they are very sensitive on the high freq end. Oh and they are super light weight but not very durable material (light plastic, again not for live use).
