So a completely different headphone than the current v-shaped DT 990. Sounds a bit like the Custom One Pro.

Fixed my DT990s just recently replaced the driver.  How do you guys like the color mod?

Looks quite cool actually, even though purple isn't really my colour.

The cable looked darker in the pictures when I bought it online.  Sadly much more of a pinkish purple but I prefer it to the stock.  Little bit stiff though.

 

If anyone is interested I could sell you the original coiled cable with the screw-on 1/4th inch adapter.

 

 

\/\/Reading your sig, you use your headphones connected to the TV?  Should use a Yamaha Receiver for that, they have a nice silent cinema (It's similar to Dolby Headphone) and they are going to power them much better.

the V375 and V373 are good bang for the buck http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=0MJ-0022-00010

I use them very occasionally when I use my Xbox 360, which isn't very often now. I just plug them into the TV(I know don't judge me) and I don't see the point of spending money on a receiver as I mainly use them with my Amp/DAC and PC.

What amps are recommended with these? Best value amp...$120 or less.

If you want budget tube amp, Bravo Audio V1/2.
post #353 of 538

Bravo v2 or indeed g3 for tube. Magni for solid state. It drives them great. I like mine better with my sunrise but that's out of the budget. I'm not sure if they're still available but they pair really nice with a fournier hta 2. I think I paid $185 a little over a year ago. Prob get one used close to price range. Good luck!

I bought a pair of used Premium 600 ohm 990s.

 

I find the clamp too light and the bass weak.

I am wondering about new pads and a new metal headband to help...

 

Any info on best pads, and where to source band?

The clamping force is easy to fix, just bend the headband so the clamp is stronger, the weak clamp is one reason for possible loss of bass. Other reasons the DT 990 may lack bass is because the system not up to the task of driving the headphone or the amp doesn't have much bass presence.

Yeah I tried to adjust the clamping by twisting them, but just ended up making them look bent lol, and thats why I want a new metal band.

I know its not snug enough since they slide around on my head f I lie down etc...

 

I have amped them on 2 different Denon receivers, ans 2 different headphone amps.

Honestly the Old Denon 3801 powers them the best somehow, and almost as loud as my 36 OHM JVCs.

All the other amps power the JVCs like 5x louder.

I wonder if the previous owner bent them quite a bit.

 

The Old Denon receiver probably gives more power to higher-ohm headphones than lower ohm headphones which would explain them being powered the best. Maybe it's the only amp you have that gives them enough power.

I was thinking the same on both fronts actually.

The older Denon was rather pricey when I bought it.

$1200 or so I believe, plus its made in Japan as opposed to my slightly newer ( much cheaper!) one thats made in Korea.

 

Straight from  my pc I have more sound than my ipod, and I can equalize some extra bottom end in while cutting 300 and 600hz out somewhat from the eq overshoot

 

I am looking at this amp right now...cheap, but specs seem good.

That amp will probably do well with the DT 990 600 ohm. I've had very good luck with the DT 990 matching well with tubes.
