But on good material it's amazing! I can listen to crazy electric guitar riffs, strings, vocals, etc. and there's no sibilance or harshness. But damn, when it's there, the T90 with **** you up with it.

 

PS wtf google, sibilance isn't a word? GTFO.


Yet even more agree.

 

 

On perfectly recorded tracks, no headphone I would rather listen to besides my T-90.

Than includes the K812, K7-series, HD800,  and even the venerable T-1.

 

I've never yet tried the Stax 009  though.

Can anyone who loves their T-90, compare the mids and highs to the Stax 009's ?

My T90s were NIB and they had very light clamp too. fwiw.

Thanx for the heads up.

 

I found the inductors on eBay and Amazon, so I should be able to build the filter(s) in the coming week.

 

So far, I simply dropped 4k -1.5dB, 8K -3dB, and 16k -1.5dB in the iTunes EQ and, really, it sounds pretty darn nice...really nice clarity compared to the HD650...obviously not so lush/honey though.

Yeah they will never be Senns, but I find them pleasantly warm for a Beyer - no thin mids like the DT models; it's almost lush in comparison.

I've only heard the 009 once, so I can't help much, but from vague memory they are on a different level. I remember the treble being near-perfect, and the mids more transparent than the T90 for sure.

My X2's have a wider soundstage then the T90's, but so far i definitely prefer the signature over the X2. Everything sounds clean and precise, the bass steps up when needed. The treble has been a bit harsh on some recordings but has not bothered me all that much. Pretty much what everyone has said so far on these is true, looks like they are a keeper in my books.

Really? The X2 sounds wider? I'll have to listen to them again...I remember A/Bing them at a meet with the HD650, and thinking that the 650s were definitely more dynamic/deeper soundstage, but they seemed similar in width. I'll have to try the X2 again.

 

Those 2 should make a great combo though - I know the X2 is in the same arena as the 650s, which are the perfect match to my T90s. One of them always sounds perfect, no matter what mood I'm in ^_^

Yeah  i feel the instrument placement seems wider on my X2, i have had the whole feeling like its coming from behind me a few times. Have not had it yet on the T90 with the same recordings.

 

As much as i enjoy the X2, having them just sit around seems like a waste. Hopefully i can find them a new home in the coming months.

Out of curiosity, why are you keeping the T90s and selling the X2s?

 

Honestly with the T90s, I'm glad I have my HD650s too - I can always swap out if I want more thump, or if my ears get fatigued. IMO it's good to have contrast; I find I don't get bored this way, and don't have the desire to keep climbing the ladder, so to speak.
