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.

Very Good Studio Headphones
DarkShinryu, 19.08.2019
I bought these for both audio production and casual listening,
I'm using them with a scarlett solo 2nd gen and no dedicated amp, i get enough amount of volume between 1 and 3 o'clock.
So i would say amp reccomended but not required, for a 250 Ohms hp they're reasonably easy to drive.

Pros:
- incredibly detailed and balanced bass and mids
- accentuated treble*
- fantastic imaging and instrument separation
- good soundstage
- built like an absolute tank
- good amount of accessories (semi-hard case, 2 cables, 2 sets of pads)

Cons:
- accentuated treble*
- slightly heavy
- changing pads can be troublesome

* The treble in this hp can be both a good and a bad thing depending on your use.
For pro use is great as it will help you to produce music that is not fatiguing to the hears.
For casual listening is not ideal, while it does sound fantastic and open, in long listening sessions it might cause hear fatigue. But at the end you can always tame the treble with EQ.

Overall I can reccomend this hp to most people, i would only avoid them if you're very treble sensitive and/or listen mainly to poorly mastered music.

Note: Tested with A (analytical) pads

Super Pro gear
FARKUA, 04.03.2020
I use them to edit, mix and master and I couldn't be more happier. Super clear and ballanced audio through all frequencies.
The best headphones I've used. Totally recommend them to anyone who want an open-back headphones - not suitable for recording due to the lack of sound (it's NOT a con) - for those tasks I mentioned.

Pros:
- super confortable;
- super reference sound quality;
- super detailed;
- super high end build;
- super happy costumer;
- NOT super exaggerated.

No cons.

These are my new babies.
EliX0, 21.06.2019
Heads up, I have so far been using them for listening pleasure. Doesn't mean these aren't amazing headphones.

They are built like a tank, will last for many years.

Comfort is good, I've worn more comfortable headphones, but these are still good.

Sound is very revealing. I've started to hate albums I used to love, that's how good these headphones are. They are perfect for audio work. They will reveal every screwup, no problem. Again, for listening pleasure is specific, if the mix is bad, these headphones will definitely let you know about it.

In conclusion, for any type of audio/studio work, it's a big YES. For home listening, depends on whether or not you want to start hating music you used to love. 5/5

Great for critical listening but brutally honest and need good amp!
TrEr, 18.06.2019
I got these for checking mixes. They're perfect for what I need and one of the best headphones I've owned in ANY price range.

They're brutally honest though. To the point where I actually prefer many "lesser" headphones for casual listening. For critical mixing they are great!

They need a good headphone amp to work properly. And when I say "need" I really mean NEED! You can totally forget about using these with the built in headphone amp on your Behringer interface. You would probably be better off with a 20 Euro Superlux with that setup.

But combine the DT1990s with a good quality headphone amp and they're absolutely brilliant! Especially for critical listening.

Very impressive, highly recommended!

Best headphones I ever used before!
HeaPunk, 15.05.2020
Used them as a primary monitoring instrument for my mixes half a year and can't stop loving them. For me they are perfect! My mixes instantly improved.

Every person who listened something through them was amazed! I mean, they couldn't close their jaws..!

The reason I loved them is because they sounds like EarPods on some Steroids!

Pros:
- Stereo image is great
- Amazing frequency response all seems to be there
- Built quality is fantastic
- Both cords are super durable, love the material
- Good case
- Sexy design, clients like it 😃

Cons:
- None

Since quite often I am on the go, I love to take these with me, but case is too large. It perfectly fits in my 13" Kanken with MacBook and some chargers and cords, but for other equipment I need to carry now more bags. That's fine but sometimes I feel that I just need these extra space for my other things.

A game changer
Ro0omi7xx, 28.04.2020
I know this wll be great headphone, but I didn't expect that much of clarity and bass impact.

The only thing that I didn't like is the clamping force. everything else is superior.

Mix your tracks in headphones
Alex P Band, 21.01.2020
Of course you'd need to check the mix in monitors and in your car but if you need to get results by mixing in headphones - this cans will get you as close to the final result as possible. Great sounding headphones. Recommended.

Beyerdynamic DT-1990 Pro Studio Headphones
Team of Soundbloqs.com, 09.02.2020
Perhaps the most honest and correct headphones for working in the Studio. And if they work together with reference 4 from Sonarworks, It becomes the most unsurpassed solution for monitoring mix and mastering. Thank you for a great product to the masters from Beyerdynamic and Thomann the best store on the European continent for great prices and best service!

Precise, comfortable, sturdy
Silvermonk, 25.06.2019
This is truly a mixing/mastering headphone. You hear *exactly* what's there in the signal. Prime construction quality and very comfortable. I'm not going to start mixing and mastering without speakers, but I'll probably be listening to everything with this, as well. The things you hear!

Well balanced and neutral. And always comfortable.
09.01.2017
I use these headphones with a Lake People G-109P amp, and the result is astonishing. They are comfortable to wear for long sessions, brutally honest and revealing of even the smallest little "fault" with a mix, but still engaging and pleasant enough to use when composing and tracking.

No cons. Just warmly recommended!

Btw, these cans should probably be used with a decent headphone amp. My recommendations would be the above mentioned G-109P or the Little Labs Monotor.

Great Headphones
Aliput Duffwadle, 03.05.2018
I bought these for mastering recordings at home. Very neutral headphones and especially good with the analytical ear cushions. As you will read elsewhere, the cushions are a bit tricky to install and that could have been designed with a bit more thought. My feeling is the Bererdynamic choose the cheaper option which is the reason I gave them 4 stars for the Verarbeitung. Despite this, these cans sound fantastic (if you want neutrality). They are, detail true and work well with any source. If the source is less than optimal , you will hear that too.

Best headphones ever
1nOnlyScientist, 01.11.2019
I tried over 100 headphones from various brands. And I tried beyerdynamic before but not this model. They also sound much better than the other brands, in my opinion, but this 1990 Pro is just another level of headphones. They have so clear, precise sound it's just unbelievable. They are very comfort, but if you use them for more hours like I do they hurt yours ear a bit because cups have a strong clamping force. I read on few reviews that they will loosen up after time, but on my headphones they are still strong. And that's the only reason why I didn't give comfort 5 stars, everything else is justifiably.

Finally found the best headphones for mixing
Viersen, 19.09.2019
The sound quality is outstanding. Even the subs are so detailed. I have been mixing at night with headphones and the results are amazing when reviewing on speakers the next day. Best headphones! Price is high but worth every euro!
