DT990s Accurate and well constructed,
This review is from: Beyerdynamic DT990 PRO Headset - 250 OHM (Electronics)I've been using these in a professional capacity for a few years now. They are very comfortable due to the big soft velour ear cups and have a spring steel headband that is unlikely to snap. They also have a coiled cable and a very sturdy gold plated 3.5mm jack.
The sound quality is exceptional and they can handle day-to-day monitoring activities with ease. The mid and high frequency response is particularly good and the bass is full and rounded without being tiring.
Your ears do tend to get a bit warm under all that snuggness and the velour covers get dirty quite quickly (they are removeable so I guess you could wash them) Also I have managed to blow a pair in the past so be careful with your levels especially at the bottom end!
I would recommend these to anyone who needs to monitor audio in a professional capacity i.e. sound engineering, video editing, music production etc. I would not recommend them for live recording as they are open backed (get the DT100s instead as they are pretty much the standard)
