BuyDig offers the BeyerDynamic DT-990 600 Ohm Over-Ear Brushed Chrome Edition Headphones for $249. But if you apply code POWERUP at checkout, that drops the total down to just $179 shipped. That takes $70 off the going rate, is the best offer currently available and the lowest we’ve tracked. While this model is lacking on ratings, BeyerDynamic headphones are typically highly-reviewed at 4+ stars.
BeyerDynamic DT-990 Headphones Features:
This is the 600 ohm version of the DT 990 Premium line, designed explicitly for high-output usage and headphone amplifiers. Conventional headphones with lower impedance ratings offer higher volumes at the same level of input, but need heavier drivers to compensate for low impedance or risk sounding muddy and distorted. The lower mass of the drivers of a higher-impedance headphone delivers unparalleled clarity and response, but takes more power to achieve the same loudness. So a higher-impedance headphone such as the 600-ohm DT 990 is ideal for use in high-end applications, where clarity and dynamic response are paramount, as well as for use with convenient headphone amplifiers like the beyerdynamic A1.
