Beyerdynamic T90 :D - Page 40

post #586 of 2427

I contacted the company and they said they have no plans of releasing a T80. You guys had nice dreams though. I was considering getting a DT880, should I get a T90 instead?

I spoke with Pete yesterday at the NY Headfi Meet and I will be reviewing some of the Beyer products in the next several months. The first one Pete is sending is the T90.  I should

 

have this review completed within the next 6-8 weeks and will forward a link when it done. I am looking forward to working with the outstanding products from Beyerdynamic.

Thanks. I am looking forward to reviewing it as well.

After being fortunate enough attend for a short time to hear most of the top cans available at that NY meet,
I had to take that plung and buy the T90 (!)..
Resistance was futile as it left an overwhelming impression on my mind of having a quality wich I call alive.

For it to do so and not be erased by all the other top end cans is a dam amazement.

My other open can favs was the senn800 and stax over the rest.

Edit:
also to me the T1 had slightly more delicate treble but also was slightly more set back or not as engaging as the T90 so although similar in signature they have a slightly different perspective on soundstage.

Maybe it's just me but I don't find T1 to be that whole much better than the T90. They are definitely close in terms of performance to my ears.

To me the T1 was more of a lateral move rather than an upgrade over the T90, but only speaking about sound not materials.

Also, Your ears perceptions will vary somewhat according to both its inner shape as it's outer dimensions.

That last point should be kept in mind by everyone when reading descriptions of the sound as perceived by each individual. The descriptions are informative, helps with trending, and I enjoy reading them myself. It takes a personal audition to find out how a particular set of headphones will interact with a specific listener. Another point to keep in mind, personal preference is inviolate. The T90 + woo WA7 combination is receiving a lot of listening time even though I have HD800, HE-500 cans and WA3+ and V200 amps. They just sound right for my human auditory system.

Yep, atomicbob, spot on. EVERYONE'S ears are different. Lets acknowledge that, and ACCEPT that we all hear music and equipment differently. Everyone has a right to an opinion.

Would the T90 be an upgrade over the HD650? Seems like a lateral move...

Completely different sound though. I have both but would never replace one with the other

I agree, though I prefer the HD600 and HD800 instead of the HD650 as my compliments to the T90. All keepers for me. There are times when the HD800 and T90 reveal too much detail on a recording with less than stellar fidelity and the HD600 with a WA3+ manages to smooth it all out for my ears.

I will post impressions with this combo when I do the WA7 review in about three weeks.

That is excellent news Frank.
It does take time to get a proper perspective.

Compared to the T90 the HD650 seems rather dull and dark.

I have to burn these bad boys in,
but So far, fresh out the box,
the T90 realism, space and details is pretty dam impressive.

Well I've got a pair of T90s on the way. I've gotten bored with my STAXs and Beyer is the only big dynamic brand I haven't heard(assuming you count my K81s for AKG) It's been awhile since I heard most of them, and the headphones I heard were not top models(SR80i, AD900, A900, HD598, PRO2900, SR-5NB) but I'll still throw something together when they get here. I'm hoping for a sound like my STAX but with a bit more bite and impact. Something that I don't think stats(or planars?) quite have.

Should be here by the second of May.
