I currently own the DT 1990 Pro, had these since they first came out and I really like them. Especially the build quality. The bass is great for open however I have grown to dislike that treable peak. Having had these for 4 - almost 5 years now I’m thinking of getting a new pair of cans.
However having used such a great unit I don’t really want a “downgrade”. I’m looking for either a side grade or an upgrade but below the DT 1990 pro price. I’m basically looking for a pair of open ear cans with good soundstage, great imaging, a similar curve to the dt 1990 but without the treable peak and with similar bass to that if possible.
The main usage of these is going to be gaming, a mix of competitive shooters and more “immersive” games. I do also listen to music (obviously) and its mostly house, techno and orchestral. I do love me music similar to the Interstellar OST as well which sounds INCREDIBLE on the DT 1990.
I’ve seen the Hifiman Sundara and the HarmonicDyne Zeus which are my current top 2 considerations. I’m in the UK so getting something from Drop isn’t possible due to shipping cost & time + tax. The zeus is available on amazon uk so i can get that. Would love to hear your inputs.
