Beyerdynamic T90 :D - Page 34

post #496 of 1911

Isn't T90 too "light" sounding? Does the sound have enough weight?

post #497 of 1911
Oooh.. I think that's an opinion thing. "Weight" and how much is up to you. Personally I think the T90 has ample weight. Mind you, I haven't listened to an LCD-2 or 3 so my benchmark is different to others.

The T90 accurately reflects the bass on the recording. It's very similar to being in a well designed control room with Klein & Hummel o300 studio monitors. The ultra low distortion on these headphones is spooky. Brushes on the snare are incredibly faithful to how they sound in person, as one example. Voices and vocals feel as if the person(s) are in the room with the listener. Good recordings give a huge wow factor. I am actively listening to my music, not my system.

There's the polarizing opinions I was expecting! wink_face.gif

 

Honestly, I was having trouble believing the T90 was struggling.  Not that I don't believe that what people were writing was their honest opinion, I just figured a respectable and experienced company like Beyer wouldn't put out a product at that price that no one liked.  I had a feeling it would have to appeal to some.

 

Really want to try the T90 out...

Yep, definitely try one out!! I think people either love it or hate it, so that's why YOU should try it!! You'd hate not to audition it only to figure out later that's what you were missing!

Hey,

 

The T90 and K702 are both bright, but the T90 reminds me of a MDR-V6 with it's brightness and harshness of sound. The K702 is much smoother and sounds more refined, but lack the detail of the T90's. The T90 also has more bass, much more, but not bloated or exaggerated. The K702's abss is more reserved and lacks some weight but overall is more pleasant and smoother, if that makes sense. Now the midrange aspect is very different between them. Both have a midrgange recession, but the T90 has very little midrange to it. The sound is thin and the elevated treble does not help at all. The K702 is still somewhat thin but has a lot more body to it and sounds more natural. The soundstage differences are big to me. The T90 has a smaller more enclosed sounding soundstage, but offer a better sense of imaging. The K702 has a very wide and shallow soundstage, but the imaging is kind of wonky at times.

i wanna buy this t90, but i only have beyer dt770/250 with me, and thats the only beyer i have tried. how is the comparison between dt770/250 and t90?  

post #504 of 1911

Hi,

 

The T90 is brighter and thinner sounding, but has more bass and a better soundstage. Detail is impressive but not a huge jump. The treble on the T90 can be grating and sibilant but on the DT770 it's smooth but less defined. 

 

What is it you want to know exactly?

Spot on comparison.  My impressions mirror this.

Now maybe I haven't got "golden" ears, but as you can see by the varying opinions on this headphone, it shows how we all hear things differently!! So if anyone is curious about this 'phone, and if you can, audition it yourself.
post #508 of 1911
We do hear things somewhat differently given our ear canals are different in size and diameter much like our variance in shoe sizes due to anatomical differences in our feet. Therefore our specific canal resonances vary in frequency. If a headphone has a frequency response peak at a specific individual's ear canal resonance it may be perceived as harsh where another may perceive clarity. It really is important to take all our narratives as general guidance only. In the end, each individual should audition for themselves and see if a particular headphone is a good match for their hearing system. The T90 is a very good match for me. I have been comparing the T90 with the HD600, HE-500, AH-D2000, all very good headphones. T90 is tops for my recreational listening, HD600 best for my critical listening concerning spectral balance. YMMV.

I find that with DACport LX it makes my T90 shine. The bass now have more slam and the midrange is nowhere recessed. I think with these combo and my current amp; Graham Slee Solo II, I might have found my endgame. With that said I have yet to audition the HD800, HE-5/600 and the LCD-2/3.
