I'm an owner of DT990 Pros. The sound is great and the build is good for the most part, with one glaring weakness. There are two plastic parts on either end of the headband that keep the sliders of each earcup attached. The problem is that the sliders are made of a tough metal, and due to there being a little play in this joint, the metal slider becomes a lever that when wiggled (as when removing or putting on the headphones) tries to pry apart the plastic component (which is two halves screwed together). The bigger your head is, the further out you slide the earcup, and so the leverage force increases to the point where this stress is enough to crack and eventually break apart the plastic. I had to replace this once already at high expense for a piece of cheap plastic. Beyerdynamic should really make this from metal, or just redesign the joint completely.
