I got the dt 990 600 ohm for 250 gbp.
Now i need a fantastic amp for under £500.
Im new to the forum and the whole audiophile world and after reading TONS of reviews i pulled the trigger on the 990 600ohms.
I currently have the Logitech G930, wich i really like and cant imagine something sound even better than that.
But after reading so many testimonials filled with passion i will give it a try.
But i have a question Im afraid of one thing though, my setup is :
- PC with Auzentech Hometheater HD (supposedly with a dedicated headphone amp port)
- Pioneer SC-05 connected to the Auzentech by HDMI (PCM 192khz)
In wich should i use my 990 ?
Thanks for the help
Portable or desktop? With or without DAC? Come on, details.
Just received my DT990/600 pair today :). Incredible soundstage right out of the box with my Fiio E17. Wondering if I need to upgrade amp though based on people's experience with something like the Woo Audio 3 or Little Dot MK III / IV.
Ok so I ordered a Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO Open Studio Headphones 250 Ohms today, but I have no other audio gear. I don't know what is needed to drive these headsets. I don't have an audio card/amp, basically nothing beside the phones. I have a 200 dollar budget and was curious what would be the best setup for these phones. I listen to A LOT of Electronic, Classical and Jazz. Any advice would be appreciated. Would the Modi and Magni be the best setup for the price? Would I be better off getting a soundcard and an amp? Maybe a Fiio E9+E7?
I have the DT990 250 Ohm and am driving them with an Asus XONAR DG sound card and they sound absolutely incredible. I don't know if they would sound any better with a dedicated amp/dac but I doubt it. I love these headphones!
Yeah I was very hesitant to sell my old DT990s when I upgraded my amp.
I am now running a Schiit Mjolnir (balanced only) and have Hifiman HE-4 and Denon AH-D5000, both balanced. They sound great... but for the long work day, nothing beats the DT990s. Last week I sent them off to BTG to get balanced cables attached to them :) Love my 990s!
