High-resolution sound  
Power and precision are critical requirements when it comes to sound reproduction. The efficiency of our latest Tesla driver technology is characterised by accurate resolution and high output power. Brilliant highs, a richly detailed midrange and precise bass combine to ensure sublime sound quality that is second to none.

Together with an ingenious open-back design, the high-resolution Tesla drivers ensure a wide, dynamic and extremely natural stereo image. Titanium-coated acoustic fabric and carefully selected precision-woven textiles round off the balanced sound quality.

These are great headphones and I'd recommend highly.


These are great headphones. Very distinct in the upper and lower ranges. Mids are quite impressive as well. Uppers are bright without being brassy.



Bought these blind, having nothing but reviews to reference


I spent weeks cross referencing different headphone's reviews until it became clear that these DT 1990 PROs left everyone with one hell of a lasting impression. So, without hearing the sound quality myself, I took a chance and bought them. I wanted something with hi fidelity; something with powerful, deep bass that wasn't too punchy or artificial, coupled with mids and highs that were clear and not piercing. I was looking for the next level of audio immersion. Despite this being my first step into the audiophile world, I knew exactly what I wanted and once these headphones arrived, I am happy to say they delivered everything I was looking for. What a relief it was! Hearing the wide soundstage, it felt like every note was reproduced perfectly. I've seen reviews describing the only "down side" of these headphones being the mid tones as they seem to others to be a bit recessed compared to the lows and highs, but the sound to me still feels full. I feel like I'm getting everything. I've yet to try these with movies, and keep in mind I'm pairing these headphones with a FIIO Q5 dac/amp (another product I bought based on reviews and weeks of research), but I'm sure my face will be melted with the purely eargasmic sound I've experienced so far. I'd absolutely recommend these headphones to anyone as a first time audiophile experience and one that will last me at least 3 years. I'm satisfied.
