Stock beyer 990 with custom grill, sanded the original cups and then repainted them. The paint looks 10x better in person. I really need to try and capture how good it looks. It kind of looks like brushed metal. 

 

The best I could get to show the color.

Looks nice and you can see the cable detail as well with the new pict.

 

Any difference in sound-stage/"openness" with removal of the shell material?

 

Thanks.

The treble is a little less. Other then that pretty much the same. I just wanted to update the looks of them mostly.

I think this question should have been asked before, but I'm quite busy to do a search by myself, so please don't be offended if I ask again: will the sound of the DT990 pro dramatically improve if I replace the used,shrunken pads with a brand new pair? And how long does it usually take for the pads to go flat? I've just bought a used DT990 and the pads look quite worn out; when I put it on my ears touch the inner foam pads.

One more thing, what dac/amp should be enough for this headphone (250 Ohms)? What I mean by "enough" is that the dac/amp will power the DT990 fine and just that, 'cause I'm probably not gonna upgrade my headphone anytime soon. A guy at my place is offering a Govibe Sharp at a really attractive price. If I buy this amp, would it be like, overkill? That guy also has a Xmos PCM5102 dac/amp and a DIY Project Sunrise. Which one of them would be the best for DT990?

Again, I'm terribly sorry for asking so many questions, but I got so little spare time and even less money so please bear with me :tongue:

FWIW I am using a project Sunrise (Version II) and I feel they mate PERFECTLY with my DT990 250ohm cans. One of my favorite combinations of all time.- my number one go to listening and what I keep in my Home theater and use daily. Can't answer about the pads though sorry.

I just got my premium headphones. I like them a lot but I was surprised about the comfort factor. The cups are a bit tight (even on the premium version that I own) and the head band lacks padding. After about 2 or 3 hours the top of my head hurts.

 

I'm thinking that I'll just get used to the added pressure. I've been using a pair of HD 595 everyday for literally 7 years now, so I imagine psychologically---if not physically---I'm used to that feel.

 

If the head pain doesn't let up in the next few weeks I'm thinking about returning them and going for a HD 600.

That's weird, I've always found that Senn's feel tight on my head and I forget that I have my DT 990's on a lot of the time because they are so comfy on my head. That being said I do like the fact that Senn's grip my head tighter and are less likely to fall off when moving around. But I prefer the higher mids that Beyer's can offer over Sennheiser.

As shown above, they are good "right out of the box"!

post #538 of 538

They sound miles better for me than the HD 650 which I am currently selling. The Beyers are so much more energetic and more entertaining. Thanks to them I just realised that I am definitely a bright headphones fan.
