k3=-3.5dB;

I "handcrafted" them for my T90s a while ago. These tame the sibilances without losing "air" and retrieve a little bit of high-mids, which seem to be a little bit subdued. With these I find the T90s to be comparable to the T1s in some aspects such as impact.


They work very well with my set-up - thank you!

What's a good DAC pairing with the T90. I've just been using my X3 > Vali > T90 and it sounds okay. After hooking it up last night to my Dell/Foobar2000 > Dragonfly > T90, I was surprised that it actually sounded better. So, I'm looking to get a better DAC to pair with my Vali and T90. The Bifrost is looking like a good choice, but a bit pricey at the moment.

  sorry to ask a question after someone asked another question and no answer yet but...

 

 

  are there any angled pads that would fit? (something that would simulate the angled drivers on the T1)

 

 

  i'm not sure it's necessary though.

I just demoed a pair of T90s with a FiiO E9 (not sure of the DAC) and I really like the sound signature. I currently own a Fidelio X1 and found the T90 superior in terms of clarity and separation (not by that much though). These are the most expensive headphones I've ever listened to, could anyone tell me how they compare sonically to the T1 and HD800?

There's atomicbob's queue. At least for the hd800s. biggrin.gif

I use an aune t1 myself. I've had others but not when paired with the t90s. I think you can't go wrong with an odac tho.

I think you'll have to make your own.

In contrast the Vahalla made tha bass of my SM64 flabby, where it is nice and tight through the Asgard 2.

It will be interesting to get your impressions (but I think you'll be pretty happy).
Your T90 is transparent and beautifully balanced top to bottom.

Has me thinking of selling my DT880s, but not in an urgent way. I'll clean out the hi-fi closet again in the next month or so for some funding, then see if I can find a deal.

Sonido is selling his pair for 360 shipped. I think that's a heck of a deal. smily_headphones1.gif

I'm assuming you want a quality bass centric headphone. Of those two the HE-500 has more impactful bass when properly driven. The HD650 may be something to check out as it has a bassier signature. Also look at TH600 which is in the same price range as HE-500. The LCD-2 is also known for its bass but is more expensive. The T90, while not lacking in bass, definitely is a brighter signatured headphone.

I got my T90 headphones today. I am sorry but I am returning them. I can't stand the treble peak it is so exaggerated that they sound like I have two tweeters in my ears harsh harsh harsh. Bayerdynamic should be embarrassed to release such a bad product. I don't understand because my DT990 blow these headphones out of the water in every aspect. These headphones are so uninviting and unmusical that they should fire the engineers who designed them.  No bass and I mean no bass at all.If you want a musical headphone go elsewhere. I am actually angry that I bought this garbage.  Then on top of all of this they name it T90 so everyone thinks it is a successor of the DT990 but they are not even close. You can pickup a DT990 really cheap and they sound 100 percent better. This headphone is a marketing disaster. I am sorry but no amount of break in will fix this they actually sound like Grados which I consider to be the worst headphones ever made. These should be priced around $200 and the DT-990 should be the successor at $600. 

 

 

I actually made a mistake because my wife had just brought the headphones in from 20 degrees outside. I thought she had them in the house since the morning. They where cold so they had no bass. Now they make nice full bass. Ignore my comments above. They actually have a very nice powerful bass. It was like if you ever turned on your car stereo on in zero degrees it sounds horrible. That is the way it sounded lol because the drivers where still frozen. I will never rush to review something again.

Also no mention of chain. This has become the single most annoying thing for me when I hear impressions. To me, words have zero credibility without mentioning the chain, outside some portable headphones that require no amping.

So you came to this thread to complain about the T90?

I personally feel there's more bass than adequate. Not sure what you're hearing, but it looks like either you have lead ears or you're just a troll.

The DT990 sounding 100 percent better? Ok.
