[Newegg] ENDED!!!!! Beyerdynamic DT 1990 Pro $599 before tax

Edit: Promotion is ended!


$799 - $200 after applying discount code + tax.

The deal is not as good as the previous price but quite close.

Good deal.

Would be better not to include tax as all provinces are not taxed equally. Oops what was I thinking, we all live in Ontario anyway.

Actually a very good point. Thanks for pointing it out!

These headphones are superb!
At first I was producing hip hop using the HIFIMan Sundara planar headphones paired with a Monolith amp. The sound was very pleasant but lacking in the low end. However, my mixes weren't translating well in the car or on earbuds.

I started producing with the Beyer 1990s and immediately thought they were sibilant/sharp. But what it really was: my mixes themselves were too sharp and the 1990s would scream at me.

As soon as I started to tame the mixes to get even frequency levels on the 1990s, the mixes would sound good everywhere.

TLDR; these headphones are worth every penny for producers who mix their own music and don't have an acoustically treated space. Just be sure to power them with a good Amp.

Btw I mixed this song using the 1990s if you're curious about their mixing potential:

these have a really sharp treble, like a lot of other Beyer headphones. Makes vocals sound very sibilant.

If they tamed that, it would be a very balanced sounding headphone. It's too bad because I really like the looks, build quality and comfort of their products (I had the DT880)

I have both the HD650 (from 10 years ago, the newer versions might be different) and the DT1990pro. The HD650 are more airy and neutral, I use them mostly for vocal and classical. The DT1990pro are more in your face (guess it's because it's for mixing and studio use) and every note is pushed directly to you for your attention. I don't mind the treble as I change the pads to thicker ones (different pads produce different sounds) and that also improve the comfort (clamping force on a new one was pretty strong!) The bass /mid bass in the 1990pro is more punchy (because of the tesla driver?) and they're very very good for EDM (techno, pyschetrance). The build quality of both phones are very solid and they both need good amping power to driver properly (impedance:1990pro 250Ω, HD650 300Ω). HD650 can be used with balanced cables and DT1990pro cannot be used with balanced cables.

I'm not huge into Headphones but they do look to be sharp headphones.

I do hear this a lot. I picked up a pair of DT880 years ago for my Classical music listening over the DT990 because they said the 880 are more neutral. I stupidly got the 600Ohm version thinking higher was better.
I still really loved the headphone. It was not that the treble was too high but for me the sub bass was there but in the background.
Years later I found this YouTuber "No Theme Reviews" that also had DT880s 600 Ohm and I how see that when it comes to amps, you should not be chasing power but other specs to get the 600 Ohm version to work.
Now I have the subbass I always wanted and I did not need an expensive high power amp.

Just chiming in to say, yeah, my experience with Beyerdynamic has been that nasty spike in the top end. It's not just a 90's problem, it's an anything with a hi-hat problem. I had the 880's and 990's, and broke 'em in with a good headphone amp for the recommended 150 hours, no difference. All of my gear is high-end Nakamichi stuff from the 80's, and I could not get them to sound good, which is a shame because they were the most comfortable headphones I've ever had on.

Ended up going with a combo pair of Hifiman Planars and Sennheisers for different listening applications.

This I have to agree. I just received 1990 Pro today and tried both of the Balanced earpad and Analytical earpad. So far I'm absolutely loving these cans with Balanced earpads. But as soon as switching to the Analytical earpads, it is sibilant hell again.
