I know Di.FM does some high bitrate MP3 if you pay for it but you're probably better off ripping CDs if you want FLAC. Or buying off HDTracks.

I haven't yet tried any of the sites listed, but here's a list of high quality streaming sites: http://www.dreamstreaming.info/sitelinks/streaming/

Checking them out, thanx guys!

Subscribed to Spotify for 230 days free premium.

Sounds good compared to other online stuff so far.

 

I doubt Ill pay $10 monthly after 30 days is up though....

I have to update my opinion of these cans now.

 

Listening to low quality 128kbps and under MP3 these sound ok, but higher quality and these come ALIVE!!

 

I am very happy, even using my cMoyBB with these 600 ohm'ers does a great job.

 

I am having trouble keeping the volume down as they sound even better louder.

I'm one the proud owner of DT 990 Pro :atsmile: 

Tight bass and sweet treble with the right combo (paired the cans with Little Dot MKII with Mullard M8161) though sometime I do hope the mids aren't as recessed and laid back as it is. Maybe I'm more to a mid-centric listener but this one is definitely a keeper.

There are a few songs that I noticed slightly recessed mids, but only as compared to other cans.

I can listen to these longer than other ones I have.

I understand that feeling with them, they are definitely keepers though. I'm more of a mid-centric listener myself, but I find the DT 990 Pro is the perfect complimentary headphone to my midrange oriented K612.

To me they have good bass impact and yet still maintain a clear even though slightly recessed midrange.

Just curious, what amp do you guys pair your DT 990 with?

I use mine with my cMoyBB v2.02, and my hybrid Little Bear P-1.

I plan to upgrade later on.

 

I also use the phones out on my Denon AVR-3801

Had mine for a month or so and the clarity and resolution have only gotten better as they burn in. I'm thinking of trying a replaceable cable mod out.

I use my DT 990 Pro with the Hifiman EF2A.

I was surfing headd-direct and you can get the HE-300 and EF3 for $249. How does the EF2A and 990s pair?
