We Say

A high end headphone that still manages to have a musical and engaging sound. Bass response manages excellent levels of definition as well as having good body and weight. Midrange is well rounded and clear and treble offers excellent levels of detail and separation without being harsh or dry. Great for a wide range of music styles where you want to be engaged, rather than just observe.

The DT1990 is a very efficient headphone, but a good quality source and headphone stage are a must for best results.

Build quality and comfort are excellent, having a detachable cable is always a plus.
