Beyerdynamic surprised us earlier this year by announcing it's flagship DT 1770 Pro, incorporating it's new trademark Tesla technology but maintaining several aspects of the immensely popular DT series which are an audiophile favorite including DT 770 Pro, DT 880 Pro and DT 990 Pro.
This week, Beyerdynamic unveiled its new flagship, the DT 1990 Pro which will be displayed at Europe’s biggest consumer electronics show IFA 2016 in Berlin from 2-7 September. Similar in many ways to the DT 1770 Pro, the DT 1990 incorporates an open back design and incorporates Beyerdynamic's Tesla drivers and several design improvements.
Beyerdynamic has focussed in the past several years on refining its trademark Tesla drivers. Tesla technology is distinguished by a very powerful magnetic drive and clean reproduction with a low degree of total harmonic distortion. This results in a balanced sound output which combines high levels of efficiency with distortion-free sound levels. The Tesla transducers are exceptionally fine copper wires which are half of a human hair, were also found in other studio models from Beyerdynamic. These handcrafted headphones have a very comfortable fit along with memory foam-filled ear pads which are extremely good for long listening sessions without heating up or any discomfort. These ear pads are also replaceable, and two types are included in the box: one favoring a more neutral sound, with the other providing a warmer sound and more bass.
Beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO headphones are handcrafted in Germany.
