Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO Review:
Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO headphones are Opened Dynamic headphones, their quality is exceptional for most professional and audiophile applications, they can be used for extended period of time because you will need to listen to these Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO headphones for a long time, they will force you to do this as you will notice that you never listened to real music until using them, bottom line these are the best for many users that had many other headphones, they admit in their reviews that these are the best headphones they owned from their exceptional sound quality, if you want to listen to real music ; i mean music that you already listened to with other headphones, try these headphones and do not wait until you are 38 years old like me. Honestly i bought the Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO headphones and own them, thank god that i bought them at this age, i used many other headphones, these ones are the best, compared them to the Audio-Technica ATHANC7 that are owned by one of my friends , there is no comparison from the quality and fidelity prospective, i saw his face when he listened to the Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO headphones, his mouth was opened for at least 1 minute, there is a difference and the Beyerdynamic DT 990 generated full audio range with precision and a non comparable fidelity. Another friend bought Audio-Technica ATHM40FS i compared them to the Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO headphones, they fail again when i boosted the base on the equalizer, distortion problem which was not faced on the many time award winners Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO, in other words they are one of the Best Headphones

Here is My review on the Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO headphones on Amazon site
” I cannot tell you when i put those cans on my head, sound quality and frequency response are better than the Audio-Technica ATHANC7 Noise-cancelling Headphones and Audio-Technica ATHM40FS Precision Studio Headphones as i have two friends who own these two and they told me that the Beyerdynamic DT 990 pro are better than their headphones, i tested this myself, yes the sound quality is much better. For Bass lovers these headphones provide a little boost for the low frequencies, Bass guitar, Bass drums, their low end frequency response is at 5 Hz and still can deliver clear articulated bass response, not suitable for people who do not like bass, also the treble is a little high, but this can be adjusted with the EQ. These headphones has no flat response like the 880s. I like to listen to Rock, Trance, Spanish,Cris Rea, Kitaro music and these cans delivers those kinds of music with unprecedented precision, when listening to Mp3 you will notice that 128 kb/sec quality is different from 320 kb/sec quality, and that is not the case with most other headphones i tried before, this is my first audiophile headphone. You will listen to the details of every musical instrument, without any overlap with other instrument, and when you will turn on the volume, there will not be any distortion, and you will continue to enjoy the music, but take care after 1 or 2 hours you will feel that your ears will hurt you.
If you have a home audio amplifier or a portable amplifier you will listen better to music and you can unleash the power of these cans.
They are built with quality components, not plastic but metal headband, with comfortable velour ear padding, it is written in the inner side of the headband ” Made In Germany”, Sennheiser HD 280 headphones are made in Ireland.
The delivery to Egypt was fast through Aramex without any problems, the product arrived in a hard paper boxing for protection, it was perfect.
Finally i hope that Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO review was informative and expressing my opinion about these amazing headphones, please leave your comments, they are valuable for me !!
