Beyerdynamic to Debut DT 1990 PRO Headphone at IFA 2016

By |

Beyerdynamic-DT1990PRO.jpgAt IFA 2016 in September, Beyerdynamic will showcase the latest addition to its DT PRO studio series of headphones. Designed for the professional and audiophile markets, the new over-the-ear, open-back DT 1990 PRO headphone uses Beyerdynamic's exclusive Tesla technology to improve efficiency and reduce distortion. The headphone comes with two ear-pad options--one favors neutral, analytical sound, and the other offers warmer tuning with more bass--as well as two detachable cables with mini-XLR connectors. The DT 1990 PRO will carry an MSRP of $599.

From Beyerdynamic
The beyerdynamic legend continues as the audio specialist introduces its newest professional headphone at IFA 2016: the DT 1990 PRO. The newest chapter in the acclaimed DT PRO studio series (DT 770 PRO, DT 880 PRO, DT 990 PRO, and DT 1770 PRO), the DT 1990 PRO delivers absolute precision with reproducible results, whether in the studio or for personal use.

The difference is Tesla
The DT 1990 PRO contains beyerdynamic's exclusive Tesla technology, creating high levels of efficiency with distortion-free sound reproduction across all signal levels. The highly responsive Tesla transducers utilize extremely fine copper wires (half as thick as a human hair), which are also used in the successful DT 1770 PRO. In the case of the DT 1770 PRO, however, the transducers are integrated in a closed system, making the headphones suitable for loud environments.

The DT 1990 PRO is designed for use in a soundproof studio setting. Its open back design extracts the utmost detail from the audio signal, while the construction of exclusive components and titanium-coated acoustic fabric makes every knob movement on the mixing desk audible. Subtle variations can be picked up like an acoustic magnifying glass.

While an excellent tool for the studio, the DT 1990 PRO never loses sight of music appreciation. Its precise and spatial reproduction make the DT 1990 PRO the ideal headphones for music producers, sound engineers, and hi-fi enthusiasts alike.

Comfort and quality: Made in Germany
High-tech materials ensure optimal wearing comfort. The memory foam-filled ear pads offer the perfect, virtually unrivaled fit--enabling prolonged listening sessions without feeling excessive pressure or heat on the ears. The sound can also be tuned thanks to replaceable ear pads, as two variants are supplied with the headphones. One favors neutral, analytical sound, while the other tends towards a warmer tuning with more bass.

The DT 1990 PRO includes two detachable cables with mini-XLR connectors, allowing professionals to choose between a straight or coiled cable to suit their needs. The headphones can also be protected from impact during everyday studio use by a high-quality transport case. The robust construction and extensive supply of complimentary parts play their roll in ensuring that the DT 1990 PRO is a long-term investment.

The new top model in the beyerdynamic pro series will be showcased at IFA in Berlin from September 2-7, 2016 (Hall 1.2, stand 204). The DT 1990 PRO will be available worldwide in September from authorized dealers, and at
