beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro Over-Ear Studio Monitor Headphones (80 Ohm, Grey)
  • Comfort 11/10 To date, these are the most comfortable headphones I have ever worn. Nothing much else to say about this.
  • My head is average size for an adult, maybe a tad bit smaller than average but not by much. I can wear these cans for 8 hours, and not ever feel discomfort.
  • I love how comfortable they are. I have a small head, and very few headphones feel comfortable on my head. But these are always very comfortable.
  • Very comfortable, with a secure fit but no clamp effect on my head.
  • More than any other headphone I have worn they are comfortable. You can just wear these things for hours and hours. combined with the good sound.
beyerdynamic DT 990 Premium Edition 250 Ohm Over-Ear-Stereo Headphones
  • I have a medium/small head and small ears and these adjust to even smaller sizes than I need.
  • Adjustment is loose when selecting the size but once you put it on it holds just as it should. Very quality product to feel and look.
  • You'll find that after a few minutes with them on, you won't even know there are there anymore, despite their weight and size.
  • The headsets elasticity/rigidity as it wraps around your head is fantastic! I never feel any sense of tightness on the top or sides of my head and also never feel any impact of the weight.
  • SUPER-important with any expensive pair of headphones, these things are unbelievable light-weight and comfortable.
