I think it's polarizing because of the model naming scheme. Ppl saw that T70 was the successor to the 770 and assumed that the T90 is going to be the successor to the DT990s. A lot of comparisons that I saw seems to point that the T90s aren't the successors they were looking for, lack of bass(compared to dt990) and treble is rolled off(compared to dt990), which to me screams DT880... biggrin.gif

Most people seemed to want to compare them to the DT770 or DT990, neither of which I have experience with.

Judging by the measurements and Beyer's description of the sound characteristics, the T90 should actually be more similar to the DT880 than any of the other DTxx0 Beyers.

Comparisions and graphs lead me to that conclusion as well. I had both the 880s and 990s 600ohms at one point to compare and although I enjoyed the bass on the 990s, the treble was too harsh for me. Kept the 880s and sold the 990s. Looking forward to trying the T90s.

You forgot 'woodworking skill'. :P

I just came from the T90 thread and some people are saying they are too bright on the top end so comment about rolled off high is wrong, now I have lost my enthusiasm for them.

Has anyone gone balanced with the DT880/600?  If so, I'd appreciate some thoughts on how they sounded.. was it worth it?

It's difficult because the cable isn't detachable...

I miss mine q.q,

If I had a Balanced amp and cable my Pro's would plug right in, not 600's though...

Right.. in my question, I was assuming whomever has driven them balanced had recabled their DT880/600, as well.

Indeed, I want a Balanced 600 ohm Pro one day for home and a portable 250 as well. Plus if I can I'd love to do a closed Back Mod on a Pro just to see how it compares to my other closed cans!

I was looking at the closed back mod a while back... If I get a second pair I might try it and see if I can increase da Boom!

Well I want a closed Can that sounds like a Dt 880... I figured why not just get a Closed Modded dt 880. Optimally I want that Clean Byer Sound, The Tight Bass, the airy well extended slighty bright treble and smooth mids. The plan is to use an amp to get those mids a little warmer, while the headphone it self maintains good sound stage and detail retrevial. With ample Bass [and I don't like a lot the Dt 880 was perfect bass for me] and that Byer Treble.

 

Going to try the K550 to see if it has the sound I like!

I am planning on buying DT880 600 ohm, and in that occation I need a DAC/amp. Is it possible to get anything suitable for under $250?
