Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro X specs: Form factor: Over-ear, open-backed | Connectivity: Wired | Battery life: N/A | Frequency response: 5-40,000Hz and nominal impedance of 48 ohms
Even though wireless headphones have dominated the headphone market recently, we can’t forget about where headphones started — wires and all. That’s right, wired headphones still exist and are, controversially, still worth it. The Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro X headphones are living proof. This model is a mid-range headphone option for mixing, streaming, or for audiophiles who want to hear every detail in their music. The detachable mini-XLR cable can be changed at will or exchanged with other connection options.
These headphones are open-backed, allowing air and sound to transmit freely through the earcups’ grills, resulting in a more natural, speaker-like sound. If you’re producing and mixing, you can definitely hear the difference in their natural frequency response and reliable sound. Plus, the included memory foam provides an ergonomic and comfortable fit, making the over-ear fit feel less constrictive.
Evident from our 4/5 review rating, these wired headphones are too good to be left out of your consideration, delivering, what our review says, “precisely what it says on the tin: provides you with a relatively affordable, brutally honest audio solution for mixing and audio engineering.”
