This is a modified pair of Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro 250-ohm studio headphones, complete with dampened ear cups, mass-loaded drivers, a 4-pin mini-XLR socket, and one of our custom ultra-low capacitance cables for unbalanced stereo input.

These headphones are Built to order and we normally have a queue of 10-14 days for headphones to be built

The modifications to the drivers and ear cups provide extended detail and control in the bass, to match the already crisp mids and highs. The addition of the 4-pin socket allows the cable to be detached, so the headphones are easier to use on a range of sources while making them more portable and easy to store. We have also changed the wire around the headband that takes the signal to the right ear cup, replacing it with paracord-covered litz wire, which matches our custom cables and provides a lower capacitance for better timing and sound.

This pair comes with one of our audiophile grade, ultra-low capacitance cables with a mini-XLR at one end and a jack type and size of your choice at the other. This audiophile cable is made of four wire cores that are wrapped in paracord. Each core is made of 84 strands of individually insulated copper wire, which gives a lower resistance than most OFC cables (so less insertion loss). The resistance for this cable varies depending on length and connector type but is typically 7.5-40pF up to lengths of 2m. We have a range of colours that the cable can be made from as seen in the paracord list photo.

In addition to the balanced litz wire cable, we modify the stock cable with a 4-pin XLR, so the headphones can still be used out of the box on traditional 3.5mm or 6.35mm stereo equipment. This is cable is only included in the balanced version.

We also offer a range of optional extras including various coloured ear pads and a carry case from Beyerdynamic (the stock ear pads are grey valour).

    Very happy with the headphones, they sound and look great, they have been modded really well, if you didn’t know any better you would think they were designed with a detachable cable. Also the custom cable that they put together for it is a thing of beauty (I am more enamoured with it than I would like to admit)…

    Will definitely use Custom cans again.
