600 Ohm Version - Designed for High-End Audio Applications
The DT 990 Headphones with 600 Ohms proves its power when connected to a hi-fi system at home or with an Amplifier
This is the 600 ohm version of the DT 990 Premium line, designed explicitly for high-output usage and headphone amplifiers. Conventional headphones with lower impedance ratings offer higher volumes at the same level of input, but need heavier drivers to compensate for low impedance or risk sounding muddy and distorted. The lower mass of the drivers of a higher-impedance headphone delivers unparalleled clarity and response, but takes more power to achieve the same loudness. So a higher-impedance headphone such as the 600-ohm DT 990 is ideal for use in high-end applications, where clarity and dynamic response are paramount, as well as for use with convenient headphone amplifiers like the beyerdynamic A1.
A gold plated 3.5 mm stereo jack with 1/4" inch adapter is included.
Open, On-Ear Design with Velour Earpads
The DT 990 features an open-back circumaural (over-the-ear) design for rich audio performance that's designed for critical listening. The open design of the headphones allows increased fidelity to the original recording and a more natural sound stage. The driver design of the DT 990 gives your music full reign, with natural response and crisp linearity. You'll hear every note, every beat, and every detail just as the artist originally intended.
Dynamic Transducer for Increased Fidelity and Performance
Without exception, beyerdynamic manufactures the dynamic transducer systems that go into their headphones in-house. From the magnet and diaphragm to the careful wiring and circuitry, beyerdynamic controls quality at all levels of manufacturing, ensuring superior engineering in their headphones down to the smallest detail.
An extremely strong neodymium magnet system offers the DT 990 highly detailed sound reproduction quality, and is mechanically very robust. This increased efficiency also leaves the DT 990 with greater power reserves for precise linear response that is especially suited for high-performance audio applications where precise audio reproduction is the most important consideration, and dedicated equipment is available such as a headphone amplifier. The large 600-ohm voice coil provides unrivaled response clarity and maximum impulse fidelity.
