HotukDEals!


I was typing the same dadjoke take on the deal (HotDEals in my case, but the principle is there 🙈)

Good price!

Tempted to punt the Bose that come with the P20 deal and buy these, I've little need for portability

These are great for gaming or watching films as they have a super-wide sound stage. Though personally I would stump up for the premium as the coiled lead is a nightmare.

A decent take on them here …A decent take on them here https://www.soundguys.com/beyerdynamic-dt-990-pro-review-15223/


Kinda, although the reviewer seemed to think that driving them with a mobile phone is ok. It's not. Really not. Mobile phones make my dt 770 80ohm sound anaemic, so I'd hate to think what a 250ohm dt 990 sounded like from one. I'd like to think that anyone considering these had a better strategy for use though!

Also, the dt series ain't flimsy. The metal band has proved indestructible.

super headphone, a bit tight as studio headphone.

you have to get a amplifier, with the amplifier it boost the head phone like 150% sound qulity.

Yeah the 32ohm 770s are the way to go for mobile, agreed these would be an odd choice for mobile use

Are these better then the custom 1 pros?
I have a pair of Grado 325i's and some Beoplay H7's. With both of those being low impedance, what can I expect with these? I have an Aune T1 headphone amp. Any advice appreciated!

They are different. The custom 1 pros are more similar to the dt770, as both are closed back, which means they don't let sound in or out as they are largely sealed (closed). The custom 1 pros have a variable bass port, allowing you to choose how bassy they sound, whereas the dt770 has a fixed port. I think that's the main difference and I opted for the 770s.


The dt990 is open back, thanks to the slits in the cups. This means they are intended for indoor use only, otherwise the noise of everything else will ruin your listening experience and everyone around you will hear your music.

Better is an interesting question then - I'd expect to enjoy the custom 1s when I don't want to hear anything else and the 990s for an entirely different experience, likely having a wider sound to them as though the music isn't right by your head.
Yes, these haven't changed in price for at least year. No deal here.
