The DT 900 Pro X headphones are sooo amazing! Years ago I had the DT 990's and they took me to a different dreamy space in my student days.. They eventually fell apart after years of abuse. Now 25 years later I've bought a pair of DT 900 Pro X's and the same thing has happened - I'm rediscovering music. The space sounds fill is huge, and the sound is insanely silky and smooth... almost sweet. The bass is somehow airy at the same time as being tight, deep and smooth! There's never any moment that music sounds harsh.. They also work with lower power devices like phones and controllers.. bringing out the best in even cheaper sources. Gaming! : Now believe it or not, it's also helping me to rediscover gaming.. they work briliantly with the Playstation 5 controller! More than enough power, and games now have a much bigger spacial effect and the gone is the boomy based and muffled sound. (note: I have a good quality Hyper X game headset for comparison). I will never go back to closed headphone again.. Of course a major cost is the fact that if anybody is sitting near by they'll hear what you're listening to. With gaming that's not such a problem because the sounds are more intermittent.. but with music that can definitely be a potential issue. However, having said that, they also sound amazing at low volumes.. so then just turn them down a bit if you might bother some one! not so bad. The extra air around your ears means you can listen more comfortably.. and when you talk you sound normal to yourself.. plus you can hear others talking if they're calling your name more easily. I never use them for travel / commuting... so I'm assuming that they're not ideal for that. But if you value quality of sound, big sound stage, silky mids, sweet highs, and mind blowing deep, detailed smooth base over sound isolation get them! Buy B-Stock ones direct from BeyerDynamic .. you'll pay 50 euros less or so and they're in new state. The ones I receive didn't even have the original seal broken. BeyerDynamic support is also very fast and their returns system is quick (even though I'm based in Netherlands and of course they're based in Germany). I returned the DT 700 pro X's after testing those. They seemed to marketed / reviewed as the closed back version of the 900's, but they're dramatically different to my ears! The qualities which make the 900's so great, are mostly missing in the 700's (air tight bass, awesome sound stage). The mids and highs are very similar but in a more compressed form. But if you value sound isolation than quality then I suppose they'll do the trick. I'm rambling now, so will sign off,.. just wanted to share the joy ;-) X
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).
