Would these work or are they too low of quality for the DT-990s:

There's no such thing as "too low quality" for headphones. That cable will work fine as will any other extension cable.

I got the cable late last week and I do not hear any sound degradation. Thanks for the suggestion.

Ordered one DT 990 600 oHm from amazon. Hope my D 3020 can handle it easily :)

Hi, how are you?
Anyone had the chance to try some 990 Pros 250 Ohms with either an iBasso HDP-R10 or a DX100?
How is the drive power? And the overall match of the DAP with the phones?

Cheers and thanks!

I plan on purchasing a pair of dt 990's from amazon for around 155$ (An amazing deal) and was wondering what i should use to drive them. I don't know a ton about audio equipment, but i would be getting the 250 ohm version, and im sure i would need an amp/sound-card/dac (I still don't fully understand what a dac is, i believe it's just a external USB amp?) I may also be using it on my phone so a portable amp would be nice as well. I have a 300$ budget, but 40 of that will also be spent on a mod mic, so i have roughly around 100$ left over for peripherals, i might be willing to spend a bit more if it's needed, but does anyone have any suggestions? Ive looked around at the filo series, but was wanting a bit more of in-depth info. Coming from a guy that bought beats in a recent life and was wanting a pair of cans that aren't head squeezing sound muddy.  Thanks in advance. Can't wait till i finally get to hear them! :D

I forgot to mention it's the 250 ohm, pro version. Figured id give a link for anyone else that was interested.

Dac is basically a fancy word for sound card. It converts the digital signal from the computer to an analog signal that you can hear. The 990's are the furthest from muddy, almost to a fault. The first day you use them they might sound harsh. Overtime your ears will get used too it.  I personally like the fiio amp/dac combos, although I am not using one to power my 990's. I got a dac/amp that also has dual XLR out for my speakers. $155 for the 990's is a steal, I got mine for $120 on amazon a couple of months ago. 

post #414 of 1040

Would you recommend anything specific for the dt 990s?

post #415 of 1040

I have a cheapie Fiio E5 $30 amp that powers the 990's. The difference between that and my $300 amp/dac is maybe 5%. So I don't think you can go wrong with whatever you get.

Allright thanks a ton.

I got a used cMoyBB on eBay, and a newLIttle Bear P-1 (from China) hybrid tube amp.

Of the 2 the Little Bear is more powerful, but the Cmoy sounds better.

I dont have experience with other amps.

I think the Cmoy actually powers it really well with the OPA2227 inside it.

Just a heads up, buying from that vendor might not give you warranty coverage.
Make sure you're buying from Amazon, which is just a few dollars more.

 

 

And I don't think you would bring these out, it's basically unusable outside(I tried). This is more of a home setup. A Schiit Magni would be a nice direction to look at, it's only $99 without shipping.
