Music radiates all the way to the fingertips
The DT 990 Edition comes in an open back design. This means that background noise outside the headphones remains clearly discernible even at higher volumes. This design lends the music a feeling of a wide soundstage, an appreciation of space that gives almost the same sense of enjoyment as listening to music with loudspeakers. The sound is spectacular. Distinctive highs and intense bass combine to produce a perfect richness of sound that delights rock and pop enthusiasts in particular.
Excellent wearing comfort
The flexible headband and silky-smooth ear pads ensure wearing comfort "par excellence". The ear pads are known for their breathable and skin-friendly velour, enabling the listener to enjoy music for hours without any excessive build-up of heat.
The combination of comfortable headband and ear pads as well as yokes made from aluminium lend the headphones a stable exterior and a pleasant fit for long listening sessions.
Difference compared to DT 990 PRO version
The DT 990 Edition headset for use at home and the DT 990 PRO studio headset: both are identical when it comes to sound. Identically designed acoustic transducers are used. However, the Edition models have a somewhat softer headband for enjoying music at home while the Pro headset has a slightly tighter fit on the head so that it doesn't move even in case of faster movements in everyday studio use. Moreover, the PRO version is supplied with a coiled cable and the Edition version with a straight cable.
Three variants for different playback devices
The 600-ohm version is suitable for HiFi systems with especially powerful headphone outputs or for use with special headphone amplifiers. The 250 ohm version of the DT 990 Edition was developed for use at home on a stereo system. The 32 ohm version is recommended for versatile use including on mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones.
The DT 990 Edition is available as a Manufaktur edition and can thus be custom designed to suit your requirements. Choose from a range of colours, preferred impedance, housing parts and different cables. All needs can thus be met.
