Proper price/quality ratio ;-)
Stephan Z, 17.01.2020
Looking for affordable monitoring headphones ("cans") for studio tracking, I compared Superlux HD660, Superlux HD665, t.bone HD 990D, Vic Firth SiH2 and Beyerdynamic DT-770M to each other and to my DT-770 pro 80. I know, not a really fair reference, but my idea was to seek for a series of cans that would not cost more, preferably less than my DT-770 and still would have proper, useful sound quality. From the types selected, you can guess that acoustic isolation was also a desirable feature, to prevent the sound from the cans bleeding into e.g. a singer's mic and thus saving me time cleaning up tracks from this bleed. I will review all of the models mentioned, each in their own product page. Here we go for the t.bone HD 990D.

The sound is quite dull over all of the spectrum. Although recommended by Thomann for drummers, because of it's claimed attenuation of 22dB, to me, it's isolation does not really differ from my DT-770pro or my good old Sennheiser HD250 linear II. Finally, it is not the most comfortable to wear of the models compared. But it is not an expensive pair of cans either, explaining the title of this review ;-) Anyway, not my choice in this quest, as you may have guessed.

Great noise reduction, wooly sound!
Lars Norberg, 22.11.2020
As the title says, this gave me exactly the amount of noise reduction I was looking for. That was the main factor in purchasing it, and it delivered. Sticks well to my head too!

When it comes to the sound, the elements lack a lot in the upper range. I had to add a custom software EQ with 3 wide bands (q-factor around 0.72) that boosted the 6-12KHz area with around 6dB, give or take. And no, my hearing is not damaged for my age of 43, I can hear treble frequencies around 15KHz fine, actually. This headset is just really, really wooly.

But that was to be expected. The elements go to 20KHz, which means the roll-off starts waaay before that! For mixing purposes I'd recommend something that at least goes to 25KHz, like the t.bone HD1000! But my purpose wasn't mixing, it was hearing protection and peace of mind.

And HD 990 delivers at that! :)

Good for tracking
Hector M., 30.10.2015
This pair of headphones are great for tracking, but not for mixing as the audio lacks on the bass frequencies, so keep that in mind. Their noise-cancellation capability isn't also that great --not for example at the level of a pair of earmuffs-- but still work to some level to isolate you from the environment. The volume of the headphones is definitely loud, though, which can counteract the lack of noise-cancellation. I haven't tried any other pair of headphones for drummers, but for the price I guess they're ok. A plus is the screw 3.5 mm jack and the included 3.5 to 6.35 mm screw adapter. The cable itself is around 2 m long without stretching the spiral segment. I'd recommend these but with caution, you may want to try out some other headphones for drummers before buying this ones.

Excellent budget headphones for recording
Kass Fir, 20.01.2018
I've used these headphones as monitors for myself and the musicians during recording sessions. I am a bedroom producer, but have successfully recorded vocals, guitars and drums with these headphones.

These headphones are usable specifically for recording tracks. The metronome doesn't bleed into microphones, and the noise suppression is so good you can play along backing tracks with a loud amp or drums. Unlike the isolation, the sound quality is rather terrible. It's low-mid heavy, and the higher frequencies are not too clear or present at all; these are not useful for mixing or enjoying music. They are also quite uncomfortable - the headband becomes looser over time, but wearing them becomes challenging within an hour. The curly phone cable is also inconvenient if you have to move between the instrument and your recording device frequently, but it is very useful on field recordings, though. Lastly, they are more resilient than they look, and the price tag is low, they not a huge investment.

The headphones meant for a specific task: recording and practicing. They are good earmuffs, but don't consider these if you want to listen to music for work or pleasure.
