What Is Not on the Box
What the brand doesn’t always tell you…
Released in mid-2016, the Beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO is a flagship-grade over-the-ear open-back wired audiophile headset that promises a wide soundstage for instrument separation and is targeted towards music enthusiasts.
Just like the highest-rated headphones out there on the market, it features multiple sets of velvet ear pads that are easily replaceable. And similar to the top-rated over-the-ear headphones in the industry today, it comes with two ⅛-inch detachable TRS cables that can easily be replaced in case of damage but don’t have any in-line controls.
It also comes with a large waterproof hard case for easy carrying. Unfortunately, it does not have a built-in microphone. It also doesn’t have active noise canceling. If you need both ANC and a built-in microphone to pick up calls, our Bowers & Wilkins PX7 review might be worth a look. And if you are looking for a gaming headset, visit our Corsair HS50 review.
