Best headphones I've heard yet


Pros: Bass, Treble, Overall very balanced neutral

Cons: Non-removal cable

This was supposed to be an extremely short review of the Beyerdynamic T90 after owning them for several weeks. Didn’t really notice the sound changing (burn-in) as I’ve owned them. Setup is a custom built desktop running Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu Gnome 14.10. Music sources are FLAC files played through Foobar2K and streaming Google Play Music. I used ifi nano > ifi micro ican > T90.   Ergonomics Beyer as usual knocked the ball out of the park. I never thought something would be as comfortable as the DT990, but Beyer has outdone themselves. Clamping is light. Almost feels like you have nothing on your head allowing you to get lost in the music. The pads are microfiber. No...

Sub 1k Ushaped king


Pros: Extended tight bass, good amount of sub bass, clear detailed highs, netural mids, good soundstage and imaging

Cons: Mids are distant and may sound thin then depending on source, grills are dust magnets and are easy to scratch. Bass boost may cause rattling

  Some say the t90 is 95% of a t1. And while the t1 is easily the better can and the t90 does fall short of being a totl headphone. It’s pretty close, and definitely has the potential to be your end game headphone.   Unboxing Pros: Simple minimal packaging, comes with a carry case, no annoying plastic to throw out Cons: Lack of accessories, said case isn’t portable   While it lacks a lot of accessories,  the fact  it comes with a useful carrying case is a plus that many other headphones don't even have. Other than that easy to unbox and no fussy plastic to throw out. 4/5 Burn in I bought a year old demo with 10 hours of burn in, so I don’t think I...

A superb headphone at a reasonable price.


Pros: Detailed, elegant sounding. Outstanding comfort. Well balanced.

Cons: Occasional piercing treble (depending on recording)

My first review on head-fi.  I have only had the T90s for a few weeks, and have maybe 30 hours of listening time so far.  I have mainly been listening to ripped CDs (44.1khz/16) and some HD 96Khz/24 recordings.  I've also listened to some 320kbs streaming audio.  My audio path is a Macbook pro to an O2/ODAC via USB.  I also have a DacMagicXS that I use at work.   I came to the T90s from a set of ATH-M50 cans.  Putting on the T90s was a revelation.  I never realized how much more music there was to the recordings, in almost all cases.   One of my personal peeves regarding playback systems in general, is a tendency for many to emphasize one...

One step closer to Audio Nirvana?


Pros: Detailed, Exciting, Has Soul

Cons: Very System Dependent, Sibilant

A lot has been written about Beyerdynamic’s T90 Tesla headphone. It’s easily one of those headphones that falls in the “love it or hate it” category. The sound signature is interesting, it’s involving, but it’s definitely not for every ear. The T90 is often referred to as the DT990’s big brother. In a sense that is true and in many ways it is so much more. Having had both, I feel confident saying that you will love the T90 if you like the DT990. While the frequency responses are relatively similar, the T90 is a truer reference level headphone. It takes everything good about the DT990 and makes it better: Smoother treble, wider soundstage, tighter bass, more space and depth, and,...

One of the milestones in my headphone journey


Pros: dynamic contrasts and subtleties, airiness, detail, punch, euphony, comfort

Cons: can be too much in the highs to someone, not replaceble cable (if you're interested in it)

(sorry for my sometimes hesitant english...)   The Beyerdynamic T90 is one of the milestones in my personal headphone journey. I’ve started with my father’s Sennheiser HD424x and a Sony MDR44, which generated my love for the on-ear open tipology, so I still adore my Grado Sr60e.   Obviously I’ve had many over-ear and on-ear open headphones, the most important to my appreciation and formation were the Sennheiser HE60, the Beyer DT880, the AKG K501, the original Grado Rs1, the Grado Sr60e and my beloved personal  reference  the Sennheiser HD600.   To fulfill the desire to improve a bit my musical enjoyment, I was flirting with the idea to buy again an...

Exciting, Natural, Detailed cans


Pros: Natural and smooth sound, exciting treble, bass texture, comfort

Cons: On the brighter side, lower bass impact and quantity, the cable might be an issue

After owning the Beyerdynamic T90 for more than a year, I'm finally ready to post a review. Since I purchased these wonderful headphones, I've had the chance to test out many fantastic offerings from more brands than I can remember, but I keep coming back to the T90. It's the mainstay of my collection. The T90 has outlasted headphones from Fostex, Hifiman, and AKG. Even when compared to cans that cost a great deal more, the T90 offers a unique and addictive sound that can't be found elsewhere - certainly not at its price.     In terms of sound, these remind me of the new Grado "e" series headphones in that they're a tad on the bright side, but have a very natural...

Brilliant sound open back Tesla headphones


Pros: bright high, high resolution, wide soundstage

Cons: not to be straight succesor of established DT990

Extremely comfortable, wide sound-stage open back headphones with Tesla technology. The bass is not strong as that of DT990, and super-treble (above 10kHz) is not prominent as DT990, but still, this is excellent headphones.   Vocal is clear, attack of drums is surprisingly vivid. This is not for those who looking for straight successor of DT990 series,  but recommended anyone who wants to enjoy pops, rock, techno with brilliant sound and wider soundstage.
