Sound image:

In addition to rich bass and the predominantly neutral and detailed sound signature, the DT 1990 is characterized above all by excellent workmanship. However, the headphones are very susceptible to peaks in height and therefore not suitable for everyone. Long listening sessions can cause fatigue, depending on the type of music. Nevertheless, the Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro are extremely recommendable headphones.

Appearance and functions:

Unlike other DT models, the DT 1990 Pro is only available in one version. The half-open version has an impedance of 250 ohms and a dynamic 45 millimeter Tesla neodymium driver.

The soft and interchangeable velor pads on the ear cups allow long and comfortable use. The padded and adjustable headphone hanger also guarantees a high level of comfort. The single-ended cable can be plugged in and unplugged. The DT 1990 also has two different pairs of ear pads. The former ensure a balanced sound, the latter for a more analytical sound tuning.

Conclusion:

The DT 1990 are one of the best-selling professional studio headphones that deliver dynamic sound that is crucial for optimal mixing and mastering. Hardly any other headphones in this price range offer such a high quality of sound and workmanship as the DT 1990 Pro does.

Third place on our list goes to the DT 990 Pro. The headphones are one of the most popular Beyerdynamic models. No wonder, because it is difficult or impossible to find better headphones in this price range. When it comes to value for money, it is miles ahead of other models. Regardless of whether you are a producer, gamer or an ordinary music lover, the DT 990 Pro is used by many different users.

 

Sound image:

The headphones are similar to the DT 1990 Pro in many ways. Just like this, it has an open design, which contributes to outstanding spatial sound quality. In contrast to its big brother, the DT 990 Pro is available in four different versions. In addition to the 250 ohm model, buyers can opt for a 32 ohm, 80 ohm or 600 ohm model.

Compared to the higher quality DT 1990 Pro, the DT 990 Pro tends to have a V-shaped sound in which the bass and treble are more pronounced. The bass reproduction of the DT 990 Pro is also stronger and slightly more exaggerated than that of the neutral DT 1990 Pro. Although the model is not as precise as the DT 1990 Pro, the headphones still manage to deliver a sound that is sufficient even for professional use. Of course, it is also perfect for occasional use. High peaks such as the DT 1990 are no problem for the DT 990.

Appearance and functions:

Velor upholstery, a comfortable headband and the simple design make the DT 990 Pro a good-looking and stable headphone that masters every day-to-day situation with flying colors.

In addition to the regular DT 990 Pro, there is also the Edition variant. This is characterized by better processing quality, a more elegant design and a smooth cable. The contact pressure on the headphones has also been reduced. However, this is also reflected in the price. This is set a little higher on the DT 990 Edition. However, the sound is almost identical.

Conclusion:

Overall, the DT 990 Pro is an excellent sounding headphone. With its accuracy and class-leading workmanship, it is one of the best headphones in its price segment. The different versions make it versatile, even for users without a headphone amplifier. Whether you are a producer, gamer or occasional listener, the DT 990 Pro is definitely recommended.

  • Half-open, circumaural headphones for at home, Made in Germany. Neutral and balanced sound
  • High wearing comfort: pleasant pressure, soft head and ear pads, cable routing on one side

The DT 880 Edition is another classic headphone from Beyerdynamic. Although we placed this semi-open model lower than the DT 990 Pro, it is by no means inferior. The DT 880 is downright unique in this series. Some users even claim it is a cheaper version of the Beyerdynamic T1.

 

Sound image:

Compared to the DT 990 Pro, the DT 880 Edition has an even more neutral sound signature. Bass and treble are still sufficiently available with these headphones, but without being too pronounced.

The remarkable thing about headphones is that some of their qualities can be compared to significantly more expensive headphones. The great potential of the DT 880 Pro is particularly evident in the middle.

Appearance and functions:

Like the other DT models, the DT 880 Edition also has a 32 ohm, 80 ohm, 250 ohm and 600 ohm variant. The Edition version of these headphones also convinces with improved processing quality. The contact pressure is low and the wearing comfort is therefore very high. The processing material is high quality and many parts are made of metal. Nevertheless, the headphones weigh just 290 grams.

Conclusion:

If you want neutral and semi-open headphones that can be used in various applications, the DT 880 Pro is actually more suitable than the DT 990 Pro. However, if you want to bring more life and energy to the sound of your headphones, then the DT 990 Pro is the better choice.

Appearance and functions:

The Amiron Home is probably the most comfortable headphones from Beyerdynamic. The padding of the headband and ear cups is soft and rests gently on the head instead of gripping it. With the various adjustment options, the headphones can be individually adjusted for each user. The cable is detachable.

  • Closed over-ear headphones ideal for professional recording and monitoring
  • Ideal for recordings in the studio and on stage thanks to its unadulterated, high-resolution sound
  • High wearing comfort due to soft, circumaural and exchangeable velor ear pads

The price of the DT 770 Pro is right next to the DT 990 Pro. The main difference lies in the closed design of the DT 770. This means that it has better noise isolation and better bass reproduction compared to the DT 990 Pro.

 

Sound image:

In addition to the isolation, the sound signature of these two headphones is also very different. Due to the closed design, the DT 770 Pro has a stronger bass response. In fact, the headphones are considered to be one of the frontrunners in this area. The heights are also better controlled compared to the DT 990 Pro and have fewer peaks.

Instead of a neutral sound, the DT 770 Pro tends to have a V-shape. Nevertheless, or perhaps because of this, they remain excellent headphones for many users.

Appearance and functions:

In terms of optics, the DT 770 Pro has a lot in common with the DT 990 Pro. Except for the open and closed construction, both models are almost identical in appearance and comfort. Both headphones have the same impedance and have a detachable cable.

Conclusion:

Overall, the DT 770 Pro is a solid headphone. It is recommended for every user who is looking for a closed high-end model.

6. Beyerdynamic MMX 300

beyerdynamic MMX 300 Premium closed over-ear gaming headset (2nd generation) with microphone, suitable headphones for PS4 console, XBOX One, PC, notebook

  • Sound: Maximum sound for gaming and multimedia applications on PC and console
  • Microphone: Excellent intelligibility thanks to the high-quality microphone capsule
  • Wearing comfort: Very soft ear cushions made of velor for pleasant wearing comfort over many hours

The video game market is growing all the time. The high demand for gaming headsets has also prompted Beyerdynamic to develop headphones that are primarily designed for gamers. With the MMX 300, the manufacturer has hit the bull’s eye. The headset is considered to be one of the best in its segment.

 

Sound image:

The closed MMX300 is based on the popular DT 770 Pro. This is notorious for its amazing bass response, wide soundscape and detailed highs.

These factors are perfect for gaming and have therefore been adopted from the MMX 300. The headphones are aimed at both e-athletes who need the most precise sound, as well as casual gamers who want to enjoy immersive sound design in games.

Appearance and functions:

Many gaming headsets have an aggressive and futuristic design. But not the MMX 300. Beyerdynamic relies on a simple and rather boring design. However, it allows maximum comfort. The microphone is of excellent quality and is more than adequate for conversations or live streaming. A possible disadvantage, however, is the lack of a function to remove the microphone. However, the cable can be removed.

Choosing the 80 ohm version is no coincidence, as most gamers don’t own headphone amplifiers. Every game console and every gaming PC that has a 3.5 millimeter socket can efficiently supply the headset with power.

Conclusion:

Despite its simple design, the MMX 300 is a fantastic gaming headset. It is no exaggeration when we call the MMX 300 the king of all gaming headphones . Only the high price can be perceived as a disadvantage.
