When I had the T90, I felt they were a step down from the DT990. They were harsh, thin, and bass light. The treble was really annoying and really strident. The mids were more sucked out than the DT990 and the bass seemed to roll of early. The soundstage, detail, and imaging was much better of course, but the tone of the headphone ruined it for me.

 

 

You thought they were that bad!? Now I'm afraid. I've got a set of them arriving at my door in two days. I bought them because all the big reviewers said they were amazing. I really hope I'm not going to regret this purchase and have to send them back.

Hey,

 

I think the pair I had were bad, as in defective. My impression was vastly different than everyone elses. I had a second one come but didn't listen to it much, so I can't remember much, but it was better (but not by a ton). I reported it to beyer but they never updated me. I think that first set was defective. There's no way it could have been so bad. I thought the T70 were even better and that's something.

 

But hey, everyone has different ears and such.

Hey I'm sorry to bug you about it but did you ever get around to putting that wallpaper together? I'm sure others here besides me would appreciate it as well.

I had similar experience with T50p; what I was hearing was about completely opposite to what almost everyone else was saying about them. No wonder, I ended up returning T50p.

 

Interesting enough, what I learned from that experience was that people on T50p thread were saying that Beyer was notorious for having drivers that were so vastly different (as in "defective", just like you say).

Everyone has different expectations and equipment.  We also hear differently from day to day.  We play different music, and even thought the same model can produce different results in different parts of the world.

Hi,

 

I have yet to get around to it man, sorry. I'll have one made in a day or two.

I love my T90 to bits but does anyone else have a problem with the really bad machining?

Check these rough edges.

Great minds think alike it seems,

 

I still hate to hear Beyer has such quality control issues, but I suppose it does happen!

Would you say so far that it is any less or more fatiguing than the DT880?

A little more fatiguing but as I grow more accustomed to the brighter highs so I've been able to listen longer. The I am definitely loving the "upgrades" portion (soundstage, imaging, details) of the T90s. Ppl can squabble about the sound sig diff when compared to the DT880/990s but the way it performs in those 3 areas, definitely better. I do have to point out that my experience in terms of time & sample size is relatively small so take what I say take what i say with a grain of salt due to inexperience. smily_headphones1.gif

I think so too about the defective part. I read a lot of your comparisions and watched the Youtube vids and thought that we had fairly similiar pref in sound sigs. It was your impression that initially drove me away from even looking at the T90s but other reviews/impressions made me take a 2nd look and I'm glad I did. But yeah, different strokes for different folks. Still love reading/watching your stuff. biggrin.gif Keep it up!

Depends on bad? It's not too rough by touch but it doesn't look that great. What I did was take a fine grit sand paper and just run over it a few times to smooth it out and makes it look better. Test it out on a small spot first tho before attempting the whole thing just to be sure that's the finish that you want on it. smily_headphones1.gif

I m currently using my t90 with a hifiman ef2a and it sounds good, but do you advise some upgrade? I m problably getting the schiit Lyr and Bifrost to match my hifiman he 500, would it sound great with the t90 too?

 

Thanks

And sometimes it looks like the rod is coming off, because it is too thin.  at least in mine
