Beyerdynamic T90 :D - Page 123

post #1831 of 2606

I briefly considered this move (from the DT880 Pro) but rejected it due to general agreement that the T90 is brighter, which I don't need. I wonder what you feel your 880 is lacking that the T90 can provide?

I am one of the many people on this thread who have owned the T90 & DT 880. You can always eq treble down if you find it bright but you can't eq Clarity, Musicality & all round engagement UP. Pick any quality that you like about the DT 880, the T90 does it better. I hope other people who has listened to both DT 880 + T90 can corroborate this.

 

Yes , they are sensitive to source matching (they need tubes to sound their best IMHO) so do factor the cost of that in.

And if tubes are out of the question (for reasons of light, heat, general convenience)?

Hi!

 

having just bought punit's T90 last week and still having my DT880 I can only second that. They do everything the DT880 does but better. I did NOT find them much brighter. They have more sparkle and clarity and are overall much nicer to listen to. It's definitively a really nice step up nobody would regret.

 

I have driven the T90 so far with: Schiit Asgard, Schiit Valhalla and Fiio E07K and must say, while they do sound best on the Valhalla, the Asgard is very close and the E07K drives them surprisingly well too. I will check them next week on the NuForce iconHDP and report back.

 

In general they are a league above the DT880 and I wouldn't be worried about brightness at all. I think they are best paired with a warm sounding amp that brings a bit more body to them. 

 

By the way: If you put the hifiman HE400 velour pads on the DT880 it removes some of the brightness and give the music more body and lower end punch too.

 

Cheers,

K

Still have both and I agree with punit and kool. The clarity and positioning goes way up with the t90s. I agree on general convenience being an issue but tubes don't really give off that much light or heat unless you get a boutique one where there's more than 4 tubes. But kool nailed it with warm ss, like the fiio products or a burson, audio gd wm chipset amps, etc

MrEleventy : On a side note how is the TS 7236 compared to the TS 5998 ? I have TS 5998 pair, is the sound that  different, then i might consider getting a TS 7236 pair for my Woo ?

I love the TS 7236. It's a more dynamic (read fun) tube. It's got a more livelier bass, a little loose at times but that can be good or bad depending on how you like your music. smily_headphones1.gif It's definitely the tube that I would recommend if one can't afford a TS5998 or not looking for a linear/neutral sound sig. It goes well with the TS 6sn7 or Sylvania 6sn7 that I have in the darkvoice 336. smily_headphones1.gif

Just bought Beyer t90 off eBay.  Hopefully they'll sound better than the HD700 I'm currently using.  I need a pair of HP with more bass.

I don't know how they compare to the HD700, but I find the bass to be exceptionally well controlled and appreciatively deep. I was watching Believe last night and there's a scene in which a large rumbling bass hit happens and I could feel it in my toes. Loved it.

I decided to pull the trigger after reading his review.  I'm currently using the hd700 with BH crack w/ speedball and Schiit Bifrost w/ Uber. They do sound  good but I want to try something different.

Hi guys...

 

I have few questions.. I am using fiio e10 to power 880's 250ohm. They sound very good. I also got t90's coming in.

 

is e10 enough for them? I am wondering if anyone has done any cable mod for these and if it improved the performance?

 

I have very limited space and my goal is to use them at work (I don't have noise issues) for 4-8 hrs a day... I want to do a cable mod since amp will reside on my left, so I would want a shorter cable, so it made me wonder if it's worth to step up to entirely new cable *instead of cutting this one).

 

Thanks in advance :)

I have both: the DT880 250 Ohm and the T90. The T90 is significantly louder than the DT880. I am using the Colorfly C4 and when I have to turn the volume for the DT880 to 100% then the T90 only needs 80% to reach the same volume. So I think the E10 should have more than enough power for the T90

post #1844 of 2606

I've noticed the same with DT770pro-250.  T90 has higher sensitivity.

 

T90 was made for trance just like T50p, Triple.fi 10, and A2000X, oh hell yeah!  :basshead:

Just curious, What is the normal burn in time for t90?  Thanks.
