beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO Headphones for Open-Back Listeners

beyerdynamic announced their new top Pro series open-back headphone for mixing and mastering. The $600 DT 1990 PRO studio headphones follow the closed-back DT 1770 PRO, which implement the same highly responsive Tesla transducers along with extremely fine copper wires. However, the company says the DT 1990 PRO’s open design results in a very spatial, dynamic and natural sound with an original reproduction.

The DT 1990 PRO is designed for use in a soundproof studio setting. Its open back design extracts the utmost detail from the audio signal, while the construction based on exclusive components and titanium-coated acoustic fabric means that every knob movement on the mixing desk is audible. Subtle variations can be picked up like an acoustic magnifying glass.

The company also states the DT 1990 PRO never loses sight of the music, allowing control and pleasure in equal measures. Its precise and spatial reproduction makes the DT 1990 PRO ideal headphones for music producers and sound engineers all around the world – which is not to say that the headphones will not also appeal to private hi-fi enthusiasts. Music lovers with professional aspirations are not a rare occurrence.

High-tech materials ensure optimal wearing comfort. The memory foam-filled ear pads offer the perfect, virtually unrivalled fit, enabling even prolonged listening sessions without feeling pressure on the ears or heating up. Sound tuning is additionally possible thanks to the replaceable ear pads. Two different variants are supplied with the headphones. One favors neutral, analytical sound, while the other tends towards a somewhat warmer tuning with more bass.

The comfortable, replaceable ear pads and the adjustable head-band with replaceable pad ensure superior comfort for a long period of time and an absolutely safe fit. All components are replaceable and ensure a long lifetime. Two cables with mini-XLR connectors come in straight or coiled versions, and are detachable and lockable. A high-quality transport case is also included.
