DT 990 vs DT 770 - Page 2

post #11 of 18
the 600ohm sounds better due to basic (and not so basic) electrical engineering and headphone design. The 'basic' being that an amp driving more voltage will power the headphones better and more accurately with lower noise floor. The not-so-basic is stuff like dampening etc...

i own a pair of the dt990's 600ohm version. i was very skeptical about the sound from what i've read, but honestly im glad i can say no regrets with the purchase. it has the perfect amount of well. everyhing for my taste, and they make GREAT gaming headphones! I listen to a lot of metal, new and old, classic rock, dubstep, and other electronic music. These headphones handle all of these genres very well. If worse comes to worse and you dont like them, someone here or on headfi would be willing to buy them. I say go 990, theyre supposed to be a more refinedversion of the 770 anyway.

I just got a pair of DT990/250 and they sound awesome? Im relatively new to all this audiophile stuff so I guess I cant compare my experience to whatever you would find on the 600ohm version, but I can vouch for the epicness that is the DT990/250. I was torn between the 880's and the 990's but after I started a thread on Head-fi, I decided to roll with the 990's because of the better bass response. Any kind of dubstep/electronic music sounds fantastic and I've heard that the 990's is an improve on lower model's bass. So, I would recommend the 990's (250 or 600).

It's not an improve but there's more in quantity, making the DT990 more v-shaped. I prefer the dt880's all round balanced sound. The treble can get a bit much on the dt990, particularly the 250ohm version.

Hey I believe you and I have talked before on gh, I am currently looking for a nice quality, comfortable, and high quality sound set headphones. I wanted to ask if these sound nice in most genres of music? and are they suitable to be used for gaming? Finally I have a Creative sound blaster card that says it can use headphones with up to 600 ohms and wanted your take if you believe if I purchased this 600 ohm version would it work? or should I take the safe route and grab the 250ohm Version?
post #16 of 18
Safe route, take the 250ohm. It really sucks when you don't say the exact soundcard model...

But DT990 still rocks, even after 3 years (you necroed a 3 years old thread).
I recommend to test the headphones at a local music store. They usually have wide range of different headphones for testing.

That is what I thought because the reviews are so positive and there have been a few trusted reviews on youtube that I have watched that seem to really like these headphones. I wanted to know if this is what you would recommend for 150 dollars because that is the price for the 250ohm versions of the pro, along with the 770 250ohm version, but I think I really would like to try the open back headphones because most of my listening experience have been 100 budget headsets that are of closed design. Thanks for the reply and if you have any suggestion I am all ears being inexperienced in this field.
