Beyerdynamic DT 990 Edition Stereo Headphones

The DT 990 Edition over-ear headphones from Beyerdynamic has a bit of a cult status winning the hearts of countless Hi-Fi and music enthusiasts for more than 20 years and continues to be as popular now as it was for many years.

The DT990 Edition headphones in its many available impedance variants (32 / 250 / 600 Ohms) continues to be a reliable companion for music lovers galore.  Boasting vibrant and natural sound, the DT 990 Edition knows how to impress with many music styles and genre.

Being an open-back design, background noise outside the headphones remains clearly discernible even at higher volumes. This lends to music being represented with a feeling of a wide soundstage.  That sense of space gives music playback via the headphones a similarity to listening to a pair of loudspeakers.  Distinctive highs and intense bass combine to produce a perfect richness of sound that delights rock and pop enthusiasts in particular.

The DT 990 Edition over-ear headphones excel in wearing comfort. The soft ear-pads are made from breathable and skin-friendly velour.  This minimises heat from building up and around your ears for total enjoyment of music for hours. The combination of a comfortable headband and robust yokes made from aluminium ensure a comfortable fit, excellent stability and durability.

"Made In Germany" and hand crafted with exceptional care. All components are available as replacement parts, making the DT 990 Edition a reliable companion for many years to come.
