Simply awesome!
loriamichele, 03.09.2019
After a couple of weeks of gathering all sorts of information about reference headphones in the market, I decided to go for the Beyerdynamic's DT-1990 Pro. The main reason was to add a reference listening device to my home studio setup, and I must say I'm definitely amazed by the overall quality of the product.

So here's my detailed review, after one month of relatively moderate usage (~4 hours average per day):

The build quality is very high, they seem quite durable and sturdy.
In terms of comfort, the weight is not really an issue since the materials used in the ear cups (especially the analytical ones) and the band are of very high-quality. My only concern is that, after long sessions, the heat around the ears can become a little bit annoying, but it's not a major issue since its root cause can be related to lots of different factors.

Let's move to the sound: very, very, very good.
Sound stage is huge, brightness and clarity are first citizens, along with high transient speed and good resolution. Stereo imaging is very accurate as well. Given their open-back design, they fall into the airy side and give you the impression that you're actually not listening to a pair of headphones at all, which is very impressive to me.
The bass response is very linear and distinct. No noticeable roll off even at sub-bass frequencies.
The mid range is a little bit forward, but that's exactly where the Tesla driver shines: they provide astounding clarity and speed, making mix work very accurate.
The trebles are also very accurate and clear; the only thing to notice in this range though is that there's a noticeable peak at around 8.5kHz, which can result in highlighting sibilant sounds; when it comes to mixing, this could be very useful (since it helps in spotting issues e.g. with vocals or acoustic recordings), but from a pure listening perspective, this could cause some annoyances to very demanding audiophiles.

Given their price, I think it would need to be doubled in order to find something significantly better.

No need to mention Thomann's celerity, super fast delivery times and great customer service!

Short recap: if you need a pair of reference headphones for your home studio and those are in your budget, definitely get them! You won't regret it for sure.

I use for mixing and mastering and also listening.

This is not like my other headphones:Akg K240 , K712,Sennheiser Hd 25 , Jubilee HD58x,Audio ath m50x
I dont recommend use with Sonarworks.

Only used balanced pads.


Pros:
Super clean details,and helping my mixing so easy
Very fast drivers no distortion on low,mid,high area.
I dont need use my studio monitors,only for checking.
Soundstage not super wide but enough,actually it must be like this.
Impressive instrument separation.
For every genre music.

Cons:
uncomfortable a litte bit.

The DT1990 is more about focus. It doesn’t invite you to sit back and relax, it makes you sit up straight and think about what is happening, and this can get very fatiguing if it is not something you want to do at that moment.

The best ear headphones.
Toratimes, 02.12.2020
I use it for mixing and mastering. I consider them one of the best in my Studio. Very detailed and accurate. Excellent helpers in work, as an additional control to the main monitors. Not everyone can listen to music because of their analytical sound. At the first audition, after 30 minutes, the head was squeezed very hard, but after I unbent the headband, they began to turn gray on the head perfectly. I stopped noticing them , as if they were not dressed on my head. The only thing that I didn't like a little was the connection, the cable connector and the headphones themselves , it is very long for me and constantly rests on the ear when turning my head to the left. Best headphones for the price. I recommend to buy.

Amazing quality
Dav05, 07.06.2020
I really love listening to music and I brought this pair of headphones hoping to improve my listening experience and immersion. I'm very pleased with my purchase. This headphones revealed a whole new set of details of many songs I used to listen to that I was not able to hear before.

pros:
- outstanding sound quality
- extremely detailed and rich high
- deep bass (especially for an open-backed)
- amazing build quality (almost all metal)

cons:
- clamping force is very strong, may became uncomfortable after a couple of hours
- to properly drive them a powerful amplifier is required (e.g. my apple tablet is not powerful enough)
- included XLR cables are too long (3m and 5m)
- due to the open back design they need to be used in a quiet environment

P.S.
The first product I received had a defect, so I requested an exchange. The operation went smoothly and I received the new product after a week without problems. So 5 stars to Thomann too.
