Beyerdynamic T90 :D - Page 190

post #2836 of 2850

I've been thinking about the DT 990 as well, although the T90 seems more appealing to me, but it's also almost twice the price. I'd be getting them from Thomann which does have a 30 day return period, though. Are there any of you who have spent time with both the DT 990 and T90 and feel like sharing their thoughts?

I have yet to hear the T90... but the DT990 is a headphone that very few people enjoy. I owned it for a few months and sold it on, not the best sounding phone for the price. If you are really interested in it, have a listen, only your ears can decide :)

I think I'll just end up with the T90 :). As far as I understand based on various descriptions, it's almost like a mix of the DT 880 and 990 (less neutral but also less V-shaped?). It sounds interesting at least and might just be what I'm looking for to compliment my HD 600.

Well I've ordered the T90 now so we'll see :beyersmile:. Should hopefully get them later this week.

Beware if your not used to bright harsh highs, you will scream in pain unless you can plug them into something that will tame the highs down enough for you to enjoy it. Also if you have high freq tinnitus, the highs will bother you.

I don't think the T90 has harsh treble... lots it it -- yes. harsh -- no. Bad recordings may result in problems though...

post #2842 of 2850

That what it was, it was bad recordings, I remembered now that i went thru my music and deleted any songs that was bad. I liked the treble for a while tho til my tinnitus started being bothered by it and after I tried different tube's in the little dot MK2 2.0 I had. I ended up still moving away from it in the end. Never less it was still a good pair of headphones but maybe not for me. Before I got the T90's I was told it had alot of treble but I didn't take them serious and thought it wasn't that lot that I wouldn't be bothered by it, but I was wrong took a while for me to get tired of it.

Agreed about the volume and treble, but I definitely experience the T1 as having tighter, punchier bass. Odd.

I agree with the amps used which makes the T90 seems to be very "fickle".

 

Recently a friend tried my T90 with his setups. Can't really remember what it was but Aune T1 is one of them. He said the T90 was very bright and he can't bear listening to it at all.

 

Another friend tried with his Fiio DAP (again, can't remember what it was) and hated it, he commented on how it sounded so wrong. He later then listened to the T90 with my setup and love every bit of it.

 

As for T90 vs T1, I would say go for the T1 if you could spend the extra money on it. I would highly suggest to try the T90 with your setup before purchasing it if you could.

 

Although IMO the T90 is much more fun, YMMV.

I solved the T90 brightness issue with Lehmann audio BCL and a neutral dac. A neutral amplifier can reduce the brightness of the amplifier. Hope this help:)

They arrived today. So far I'm liking them and I don't think they're too bright, but they are certainly bright! There's definitely more treble than the HD 600, but fortunately, it seems that my ears are not treble sensitive. Soundstage might be slightly larger. In terms of detail, I'm not sure, but they obviously sound clearer due to the extra treble.

 

They're comfortable, even the headband (not as comfortable as the HD 600, though, but of course they are still new), which is something I couldn't say for the DT 880 Premium when I tried those. The combination of light clamping and the weight plus insufficient padding in the headband (for my head at least), just wasn't very fun.

 

But the T90 seems to work for me :beyersmile:

 

So far so good. I enjoy them out of the O2.

post #2848 of 2850

So close to pull the trigger on the T90's. I've owned the DT 880 briefly, which I liked, but sold to a friend before my HD-600 arrived. The 600's are just way too dark for me. I've come to the conclusion that I really like headphones that got that sparkle in the highs. My goto headphone atm is a pair of Alessandro MS1i, powered through a Dr.dac2 -> Project Sunrise II, all flac through Foobar. The T90's seems to be the logical upgrade and should pair fairly well with my amp, or am I totally wrong?

MSD192 -> Project Sunrise III -> T90 with a PSVane 12AU7-T sounds very good to my ears. Listening to this combination while typing now.

Sounds good, I've got a couple 12AU7-T tubes too. Thanks for the fast reply, the T90's probably gonna be my next headphone then :)
