Thats why I sit in the front / middle row & never stand next to the musicians :D .

I had the HE-500's great headphone.....but found it very uncomfortable. 

The new he400i will be more comfortable. If you can hold out for a month then I would suggest those. They are lighter and have deeper, thicker, softer pads.

 

also the t70p is said to be less bright.

Since I get my audiophile sound fix (i.e. neutral) from my speaker setup, I think I may be more interested in a slightly fun sound signature from my headphones to mix it up.  

 

Therefore, I bought the HD600, HE-400 and the T90.  The HD600 and HE-400 have now been through the burn-in process and the T-90's will have about 100 hours burn-in on them after today, then the 3-way shoot out begins. 

 

Just based upon early listening sessions, I am currently leaning toward keeping the T90 or HE-400, but we shall see.

 

Just a short follow up to my post....

 

I am keeping the T90.   I absolutely love this headphone.  I enjoyed the HE-400 and HD600, but I preferred the T90 by a good margin.

Glad to hear it. I also loved the HE-400 but found myself reaching for the T90 almost exclusively. They both had great detail but the natural sound of the T90 won me over.

I had the HE500, and I preferred the T90 also. When you find yourself reaching for one phone over the other consistently, you know it's time to let go of the lonely partner.

Got the Bttl Head Crack a couple of hours back & have been listening till now. WOW :eek: these both have unbelievable synergy, made for each other . I would request anyone who is disappointed with the T90, to please try it with the Btl Crack if possible. Whatever little doubt I had if I was going to keep T90's are gone. Beyer should put a disclaimer of the T90 box "Only to be heard with the Bottlehead Crack ". :beyersmile:

That is how I perceive the T90 + Crack. A lot of fun. Though I have other really good amps, I spend a lot of time with this pairing.

On an incredible Crack music high right now & you tend to do stupid things when high :wink_face: . went on ebay & ordered some tubes recommended by you for the B.Crack.

All the bottlehead crack talk on this forum has me scrambling to find one, but they seem to sell quickly on the FS/T forum and I've never built anything audiophile-related in my life so I can't buy the kit. Jealous.

You should get an adapter so you can roll all your dv336 tubes as well. smily_headphones1.gif
post #1586 of 2434

The DV 336 rear tubes (6080, 5998 & 6AS7G) are directly compatible, so I guess you are referring to the front tube - 6SN7 to 12 AU7  adapter. Any idea where I can get one ?

 

edit :

 

Got it.

I was patiently watching FS/T forums for 2 months before I hit pay dirt (I need 230V , guess 110V will not be as hard).

I was exactly like you, but took the risk and ordered the kit. The build was easy peezy...Also, the BH forums were great help. I would do it again, if I had the time.

Same boat as you; hesitating because of the DIY-ness of it. redface.gif

Heh my experience with building the Crack and Quickie, and their respective upgrades has emboldened me. I'm from Atlanta and with the recent snow, I hit a curb and bent the control arm. I was able to accurately diagnose the issue, and was tempted to just go buy the part and replace it myself for $50. Ended up taking it to a shop, and I was right on the problem, and spent $200 to get it fix including labor. It was funny how I was telling the people at the auto shop the exact part that was damaged, but I guess my show of knowledge and bluff deterred them from trying to sell me things I didn't need. Honestly, had they said a bunch of other things were broken, I probably wouldn't have known better, and would have spent a lot more.

 

I'm sure working with car parts is a lot different than soldering an amp though.
