DT990 Premium 250 Ohm Beyerdynamic Special
« on: March 02, 2017, 09:19:15 AM »
Hi,


I had to bring in the latest DT990 Premium 250 Ohm Headphones 2nd generation with individual serial numbers for an order but Beyerdynamic (TID) would only send it if I brought in a batch of minimum quantity of 5 on special order

I therefore have 4 left which normally retail at R4290 but I am offering to AV Forum members for R2990 until they are sold

Please let me know if you are interested. I have a demo pair as well if you would like to try them first.

If I have 880, do I need 990?

Hi.


The DT880 is much more neutral while the DT990 has a larger soundstage and a warmer sound+ more bass


I have found that gamers prefer the DT990 while audiophiles prefer the DT880. For movies the DT990s are also a lot better.


You are welcome to come past and compare them.


Regards
Israel

Thank you.  That's more or less what I seemed to remember.  The premium nomenclature got me wondering.

I ordered a pair of these from Yisroel yesterday , and am anxiously awaiting their arrival on Monday . I'd just like to let everyone know that Yisroel is an absolute pleasure to deal with . He went out of his way to test this headset with a specific headamp that he sells , and gave me a comprehensive and honest review of the combo , rather than trying to sell another component .

Thank you kindly Yisroel !
