[/, Who knows how much booze he has drank. There is a time and a place and all that and it ain't whilst your dribbling on about a set of cans, well maybe I guess!
However these headphones can be harsh,sibilant with peaky treble I totally agree, I don't like the sound through the fostex hp-a8 but love it through my icon tube just synergy I guess. Yesterday was the 1st time I had listened to DSD through this setup and I was blown away by it! Really significant upgrade to Wav on my kit so more of that required.

What's there to think about, he simply didn't like them, tho i didn't watch the whole video but part of it. I don't know what he used for a source or what he used to amp them. When I had the T90 they had great details and was clean, good bass too I did love the T90 but only with a tube amp like the little dot MK2 2.0. But the Brightness is what got me. Even tho I found a vacuum tube that toned the brightness down it did something else to the rest of the sound signature that I didn't like. But I end up moving away from them any way. I have High freq Tinnitus in my left ear and the brightness was bothering it, otherwise it wouldn't had bothered me so much.

The Beyerdynamic T90 isn't for every one of course but when paired with gear that make them shine they are good headphones. But as I said every one have a different sound signature that they want or like.

He claims to have paired them with the emotiva xda-2, fiio e09k, audio engine d1 and his roommates schiit stack and they all sounded bad. The t90s are a lot like grados in that they can come across as bright and harsh to a lot of people.

After picking the AKG K712's over these two years ago I could not handle wondering about the quality of these anymore.  I was put off by the sibilance reports since I hate sibilance and found the DT 880's very sibilant, but have not had an issue with these after trying the tracks which the DT 880s ruined (Be Your Sound by Emma Hewitt and Explain by Faunts).  They also require far less volume than my AKG K712's and are far bassier than the 880's. Almost all of my of my music is FLAC or Apple Lossless and I have a Denon 1713 receiver, Sony UDA-1 and Sound Blaster Z.

 

Any song suggestions to check for harshness and sibilance?

Anyone has tried a pair of Beyerdynamic T90 with ALO audio Studio Six?
