Beyerdynamic T90 :D - Page 36

post #526 of 2584

Slap the DT770 PRO earpads on the T70 and you have an amazing listening experience! More isolation, less-harsh highs, and a breathtaking soundstage. Very nice indeed. I recommend it to those who own both!

Been looking to upgrade from my Denon D2000's.  Came across Cnet's review of these which made them seem amazing, what's even more amazing is that they only cost 530$ in Canada while most other headphones are 100-200$ more:

Then I read your DT 990 comparisons, they made my sad :(

 

There aren't any Canadian retailers I am aware of which have hassle+charge free return polcies that sell T90's and there are no local shops here which have them either.  I appreciate your 990 comparison, thanks.

The T90 are definitely an audition first before buying or deal with a place that has a return policy. They work well for some, not so well for others. I have been listening daily to the T90 paired with a Woo WA7 and have been enjoying them immensely.

I just upgraded to T90's myself. After spending some time with them, I like them a lot more than my Q701's.

Care to elaborate? I've been set on the Q701's for a few days and I can actually try them out.

Hey,

 

This does muddy the sound a bit IMO. But it tames the highs extremely well. The midrange sounds thicker but some resolution and detail is lost. The bass becomes a bit boomy and texture is also lost.

 

The one beyer that benefits from pad changes the most if the Custom One Pro. The DT770 velours make the sound smoother and airy. The stock pads sound good but lack air and space but swapping them opens up the sounds more. It no longer sounds claustrophobic. The soundstage and imaging improve a bit and are more focused.

I would try to listen to T90 for some time and decide for yourself (they do need 400+ hours of burn-in though). I respect that someone "cannot stand T90" (I do this all the time myself toward many other headphones), but if I personally want to buy something, I usually ask people who "love" what they own, not the ones who hate it. evil_smiley.gif

 

I own both T90 and DT990/600; use T90 with Beyerdynamic A1 and DT990 with M1HPA. DT990 are great, no doubt, and I like them very much, but DT990 do not even come close to T90. You can find T90 on Amazon (US) and read my review there for some insights (by "Larry, Atlanta"), if you are curious.

My listening time is approx. 1 to 3 hrs each evening split between HD800 on a WA3+ with a Chatham 2399 tube and T90 on a WA7 with stock Sovtek 6c45pi. Tonight it is the T90+WA7 and Thelonious Monk's Straight No Chaser. Japanese Folk Song is phenomenal. Feels like I could reach out and touch the musicians.

Hey all,

 

I still think the T90 is a bad headphone, not even worth $200. Take my comments as you will, but I think they aren't that good. I vastly enjoyed the T70 over this and was hoping it would be something like those but better. It has some good going for it but the treble presentation kills it for me. The mids are recessed, the treble sounds like it's coming out of a tin can. I stand by my impression, my honor, and my reputation. With that said I will conclude this little paragraph. For $500, these are garbage.

The T90 is obviously a bad fit for some. The problem here is the assumption of absolutes. That would be fine if we all had the same dimensions of our external auditory meatus. But we don't, any more than do we all have the same shoe size. The T90 clearly has high frequency peaks. If they line up with resonances of a given size ear canal, it can sound harsh. This is most definitely a headphone that will benefit from audition before commiting as it is beneficial for some and detrimental for some. YMWV.

I felt that bad about AKG Q701 when I tried them. Now, are really Q701 that bad? No, not really. As a matter of fact, they are probably very good. The proper word was "not for me".

 

And I think you are taking it too personal ("...my honor, and my reputation..."); it's just a pair of cans. 

 

The way I hear my T90 has nothing to do with what you just said, not even close. Not about mids, and definitely not about highs. Not any of the comparisons you made to DT990 stand with my own experience. How many hours did you have on T90 when you listened to them?

 

Regardless, I got your opinion, but in mine, T90 sound simply *amazing* with Beyerdynamic A1.

I would love to get a taste of the T90 somewhere. But since we got a new Beyerdynamic distributor in Denmark they do not want to lend out or sell reviewer-samples anymore. So one day I simply just have to buy one.

post #539 of 2584

My T90 should be here this week. After these last few posts I'm very curious about it, especially compared to the T70 (and DT990). I'll certainly compare these to each other.

In the past my personal opinion on a (Beyer) headphone often didn't correspond with Zombie's point of view, I'm hoping we don't agree on the T90 either as I'd like it to be good rolleyes.gif

The T70 is a great headphone, especially with the right music but it isn't my fav sound at all. That doesn't mean it's a bad headphone but I'd like the T90 to be a bit different, especially the bass compartment.

I'll find out soon enough!

@ultrainferno & notanangel.. Enjoy your T90's!! I loved them. I use LCD-2's now, but still got a soft spot for them:) (I'd quite happily buy a supplementary pair later in the year;))
