The DT 900 Pro X seem durable enough to handle years of hard use

Beyerdynamic refers to the DT 900 Pro X as premium studio headphones. That had us scratching our collective heads. After spending some considerable time with them, we still can’t figure out what makes these over-ear headphones less suitable for home use. They’re well made, comfortable and sound great, so whether they are intended for the studio or not, we really like them.

They don’t do this excessively, unlike Grado’s various Prestige models, but it remains something to think about if you need a more insulating design. There are advantages to an open approach though, as the best of the breed deliver dynamic subtleties and articulation beyond even the leading closed alternatives we’ve heard.
