I recognize you from the DT 770 Pro 32 ohm (anniversary) thread smily_headphones1.gif . If I might ask, how do you think the T90 compares to those?



If anyone who has tried both the T90 and T1 feels like talking about them (is the T1 worth an extra 300€ (~$350)?), that would be great!

The DT770 Anniversary is a great headphone, still use it a lot. But the clarity an detail of the T90 are better as well as the bass (with the right amp) can extend way lower and is more layered. I have both and listened to @punit T1 for two weeks when he generously lend them to me when he was traveling. The T90 was a revelation to me the T1 does everything a tad better. Soundstage is more open, and the highs are the most natural you can get - makes the T90 in comparison sound a bit unnatural/ artificial when you A/B them. I bought @punit DT770 anniversary, and his T90 over time, but he won't sell me his T1.

I am still terribly in love with my T90, so much so that I sold it to buy the Jubilee edition.

Is the T1 worth the extra money, YES. Is it worth the upgrade for you personally? Not so sure. A very subjective thing. I love the T1 but I am still hesitating to make the jump, can't explain why.

So my recommendation, work yourself up the ladder and when you reached your personal audio heaven - enjoy and stay there ;-)

@punit had all three headphones and I personally respect his opinion the most, maybe he jumps in here but I guess he will tell you the same he tells me: Get the T1, period.

Cheers,
K

That is really a personal preference decision. You should find a meet and listen to both to decide for yourself. You are going to get people that say T1 is the only way to go while others will recommend the HD800. I have both and spend more time with the HD800 and even the T90, than the T1. My preference. For what it's worth the HD800 has a more convergence of opinions throughout all the various forums than the T1. But the T1 is a very fine headphone. It really comes down to personal preferences.

Thanks, I hadn't gotten that far in the thread.

I hear that if you own T90, T1 is not worth the investment since they are very close in terms of sound. But you own neither, and it's just a 300€ more. I'd take the T1. 10% better sound for 300 euros? Heck that's a bargain, I mean we upgrade our DACs and amps to get just a tiny bit better sound and pay more than that all the time.

Do you think the soundstage of the T90 is noticeably larger than the HD 600?

 

Thanks for sharing your impressions.

I see. Thanks for responding.
 
Do you think the T90 overall has a similar sound signature to the T1? In terms of the soundstage; is it much more open or is it a relatively subtle difference?
 
I'm not sure I can justify spending the extra 300€ on the T1 - also considering they'll just be driven by the O2 amp, although I understand it should have enough power.
 
I'll take a few more days to decide, thanks again.

Hi!

 

You can be perfectly happy with the T90 - I am and with all the temptation I never made the jump to the T1 - for some the T90 is the better can. Sound signature is similar.

 

@jamesng45678 - tough one. I heard them both extensive but I think if I could choose I would take the HD800 - the T1 though is cheaper, can be found online for way less than the HD800. 

 

Cheers,

K

for some reason their ordering system is a tad wierd, says my order went through but i didnt get an order number etc.. Hopefully its all good.

 

In my experience it may take some time for the confirmation email to go out, so I would not worry. And welcome to the club!

I think the T90 is really a very good headphone and well worth its asking price. The T1 has a different tonal balance, being smoother overall (I think the T90 has a more lively treble) and can offer more details -- but that of course depends on the source / DAC and amp... Can't comment on the O2 in that regard as I've never heard it personally.

 

If you're after a complementary headphone for your HD600 the T90 might be the better fit as it is more different so to say... plus 300,- invested in music instead is quite a bit of fun ;-)
