Highly recommended for T90! Very intense and groovy! You get surrounded by huge, holographic images. 

Smooth and creamy yet very resolving. Glorious pairing!

ok cool. btw does it has some hamming noise or other noise when not playing music? because some one told me that his hd800 has some noise with tube amp.

 

thanks

The crack I have is dead silent. You can get tubes that are noisy for various reasons, ac hum, heaters, buzzing, wired low amplitude sounds... all normal with tubes especially in an OTL design...I let the amp warm up for 30 min or so, and things settle out and its dead quiet. Then the magic starts...

ok great. my country does not have crack :( only limited tube amp. darkvoice, schiit, little dot.

Completely silent, no unwanted noises :) 

You should definitely consider bottlehead crack, even used if possible! It gets nothing but great reviews.

Guys, much does does the amp influence the sound of these phones?

I'm a little worried by mentions of how bright it can be.

Basically, I need to get new headphones to use during recording, so while I will use them for listening on occasion they will get the majority of their use out of various

 

I was planning on getting a Grado RS-2 or something... I had SR-225's and sold them to get something more neutral and detailed to use mostly out of a mixing console (Behringer X32) and on occasion out of various DACs. Don't have a dedicated headphone amp and am trying to avoid that in my studio setup. I love the KRK KNS 8400 I have now can be used easily with any of my audio interfaces or audio gear, and I know the Grado could do it just fine as well but the 225's were a bit colored for my liking while doing recording.

 

TL;DR Really tempted to get a set of T90 but worried they won't have a good place in my studio setup being powered directly out of my mixing console. i don't want to have to add a headphone amp to compensate for sensitive treble or things like that.

 

sorry for rambling... PS i would imagine with extremely sensitive headphones like this that any sort of electrical abnormality caused by tubes would be reproduced in cans like these! if you use a tube amp make sure everything is properly grounded and getting good clean power:L3000:

What interface are you using? Something like an Apogee Duet would pair really well with the T90, but they won't sound too fun on a cheap (sub-$400-ish) interface with a weak amp that's designed for DJ headphones.

Thanks @Gilly87.

I have an EMU 0404, EMU 1616m and a Behringer X32 mixing console. Don't let the name fool you, the X32 is very serious business! I only know what my KRKs and old 225's sounded like through the X32 though.

I don't think any of them are geared towards crappier DJ headphones, but at the same time it's a different world from Hi Fi audio...

Do you know what DAC is in your X32? I'm pretty sure a performance-grade piece like that will have plenty of power for the T90, but I can't find anything on the DAC.

 

I'd guess the headphone out on your X32 might have a tiny bit of grain compared to a $1000+ audiophile rig, if only because the circuitry can't be *completely* discrete, given the hardware EQ, and it's just not a device that's designed to maximize the quality of headphone output, but as long as the DAC is solid, I'm sure T90s will sound great on it.

 

The other 2 interfaces are probably inferior quality as far as headphone output goes, given their price range. But I've been surprised before.

Just be careful about using the T90 for mixing, at least as long as you've got the stock pads on. They will make a great reference for a brighter sound, and will show up stuff like sibilance and harshness when it's there so you can eliminate it when necessary, but if you're doing your final mix with the T90 as a neutral reference, you're going to wind up with a muffled-sounding track.
