had my friend casper give my 990's a little facelift + recable.
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.
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
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.
