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.

First, the customer support could be much better. More empathy to be specific. Selling B-ware for a A-ware price is strange. (No option to return for free) On the other hand the product looks just like new,so no complaints there. The sound is superb. Beyerdynamic knows the sweet spot, no muddy bass or sharp hight, it's spacious,robust, subtitle,it's just wonderful,big ups there! The ANC is plain medium to low. It's just not the right chip or something. Compared to the MX3 from Sony. You're just strait into space, so surreal. But not with the Lagoon,a small hissing and lower surrounding sound. This was a offer I was willing to make because of the terrific sound. Connectivity is good, although it's Bluetooth 4.2 I can walk the house with no problems. But for me they sit not comfortable enough. My ears are apparently to big for them. After a couple of hours my ears get pain. I can somehow wiggle my ears inside but that is just strange. So in short, Sound is very good, connectivity with all the codecs, to although it's BT4.2.Is good. Building is okay,not super sturdy but not crappy either (no plastic sounds) But the heart my ears after hours and that's not good to me.
