RE: Headphones & mikes

The word on the street is you need a decent headphone amp to get the
best out of the 990. As of mine they are open back, so its a lot
better for longer use. I have a pair of beyerdynamic DT250s which are
very accurate, but they are closed and not too comfortable for long

    The 990 pros should be more accurate than the 250’s as they are open back. The impedance is 250ohms so they will appear quiet to an amp designed to pump into 60ohm load say. But they are really flat which is what you want, with a really wide freq response. They may not be too good when recording a vocalist alone though as there will be bleed-thru onto the mike because of the open contruction. Your 250’s could do for that as Beyer say they are for studio playbacks and intercoms but the response is 10-30,000Hz which seems a bit over the top for that.
