I'm a music lover, I still buy CDs and I listen to flac music at home or in mobility, thus I finally decided to buy a pair of headphones for my home listening. After reading lots of reviews and listening on YouTube to headphones sound demos — not the real headphones sound, but at least they tell you something on the sound signature —, I decided Beyerdynamic's one was my favourite sound signature! I preferred to buy some "flat" or close to flat headphones, to listen to music in the closet possible way to the original track, as I'm not fan of overwhelming bass sound. I don't own any thousand euro headphones amplifier, but with the USB DAC/Amp I have and the Yamaha A/V Receiver I have, I'm quite satisfied by the sound experience, so far. I had to perform a warmup test for the headphones, and after around 40 hours, I can say the sound's really good! On PC I'm using Peace equalizer with Beyerdynamic DT 990 profile. It's good and it avoids having voices too much sharp in my ears.
If I have to find a weak point, is probably the voice peak, that without a proper equalization may result in being too harsh sometimes, after long listening sessions. But consider I'm not using a proper headphone amplifier, which I might buy soon, so things could change in positive in this respect. My rating is 9/10. I'm satisfied. I'm aware that spending more I could probably find better headphones, but considering my price range, the sound of my DT-990 Pro is so good for my ears! Oh, and about the materials and build quality, I'm very happy. This all black colour is just a thing of beauty for me! The ear pad cushions are soft and perfect for many hours of listening, without hurting my ears. The headband doesn't hurt and doesn't tighten too much on my head. And before I forget, another good thing I found in these Limited Edition Black, is that the cable is straight. It's way better for me, especially when I sit far away. I don't like so much coiled cables, to be honest. Clearly, in my opinion it would have been better to have a detachable cable, even balanced cables, but it's fine for now. Just in case I really need them, once the warranty is expired I could try modding them. Thanks to Beyerdynamic.

I placed an order without realising my address (on PayPal) hadn’t changed yet, as I have recently moved to another city. After contacting support, I was told that changing the address order was impossible. I then asked whether I could just simply cancel the order, which was also not possible, even though the order hadn’t been sent out yet. I was then also told to try to get DHL to change my delivery address, which – you guessed it – was also not possible. I get that it may be difficult to change an order that has already been processed or shipped to the courier service, but this all happened several days before I even got confirmation that DHL was going to ship my package. Now I’m stuck trying to get a hold of a package of which I have no idea who got it, in a place where I never come anymore. It’s just a massive waste of time and potentially money and could have simply been avoided by allowing me to cancel my initial order (that hadn’t even been shipped yet at that point).

I was a little worried by purchasing a b-stock headset, but the headset arrived in like-new condition. The sound quality of the DT 880 is extraordinary; I have never had such a revealing and balanced headphone.
The order process is super easy, immediate shipping. Only the DHL service leaves something to be desired, but that's not Beyerdynamic's fault.

The DDT 990 pro limited edition 80ohm are a perfect product for mixing and mastering, I bought them from B-Stock and they have arrived new in an impeccable package. I give them five stars.
