Beyerdynamic T90 :D - Page 62

post #916 of 2388
the Sennheiser sound darker and richer. More authoritive, but put you further back in the audience..I think they sound best with classical music. I listen to live jazz mostly and the Sennheisers make me feel I am in the back of the room I think they sound good, but I am not crazy about them. One reviewer liked the 700 over the 800, but ive yet to hear the 700. I think because of the huge soundstage they sound best with classical music

I'm enjoying Diana Krall with HD700 as much as I did with HD650

Thanks for this comparison. The HD700 and T90 are both on my list of 'wants', but I feel like I would be drawn more to the HD700. Which one do you find more comfortable?

Hello! I am getting interested in buying a pair of T90 but it is pricey and I want to make sure before taking the plunge. 

 

Can someone here with an iOS device download this free app "Accudio" and run the Headphone simulation for T90? Does the simulation sounds like a T90 signature? Thanks your help!

 

post #920 of 2388

What headphones are you currently using with the iOS device to listen to the T90 simulation?

 

The simulation may emulate the EQ but not other parameters such as transient response, harmonic distortion, impedance, etc.

 

I find the T90 have a special synergy with Woo WA7 and absolutely love the combination. But I just built a Bottlehead Crack and the T90 sounds a little thick in the bass with the Crack. May be the RCA 6080 output tube. Yet the T90 sound much better on a Woo WA3+ with a 6HC13 output tube. The Crack seems to love HD600 / HD800 and that combination gives much satisfaction.

 

Update: it was the RCA 6080 causing the T90 to sound thick and less defined in the bass. Changing to a Chatham 2399 and the bass is much more solid, having better definition with the Crack.

The RCAs tend to be meatier bassy tubes. Try looking for some Tung-sols/Chatham or Sylvanias. 7236 for "affordable", about $30-40 or 5998/2399 if you want the expensive stuff. biggrin.gif

E: n/m, you update while I was quoting. lol dt880smile.png

I got lucky with a group buy for the 2399 and acquired several at a reasonable price. The included 6080 is my first RCA. This particular 2399 is just slightly microphonic and will start to make noise in one channel if the Crack is bumped even slightly. Then a very very gentle tap to the 2399 on the side with the triode making noise and it will stop. Would one of those fancy dampers help at all? 

 

I do seem to have timing issues in a parallel universe. beyersmile.png

post #923 of 2388
Yeah, the dampers should help. Mine is like that too. The 6as7s that I have doesn't seem as microphonic. I can whack those with a good thump and it's relatively quiet. I think maybe it's the gain of the tubes. 5998/2399 are of higher gain than the 6as7.
post #924 of 2388

That is good to know. Whose dampers do you use?

 

Several 6as7, 2399, 5998 and 6HC13 here. Have some of each that make no noise, and 1 of each that either hum slightly, is microphonic or make a mechanical sound both acoustically and electrically, mostly during warmup. And one turkey that POPS - it is no longer used at all as it nearly destroyed a headphone. Made it sound like a gunshot.

post #925 of 2388
I don't use any actually because the desk that I have my amp on is built into the wall, I can't budge that thing even if I wanted to so I don't bother. biggrin.gif Some of the ones with humming, are they NOS? I find that some NOS will buzz at first but let them burn in for a day and it clears up.
post #926 of 2388

Yes, they are NOS or very slightly used. I have experienced several that started out noisy and quieted down after 20 ~ 40 hrs of on time. The one that I am currently playing with starts humming in the left channel only after the base receives a slight bump and then will stop with a very very gentle tap to the tube on the side with the triode associated with the left channel. It is quite repeatable. Not a big deal but more of a curiosity. Other than that, this particular 2399 has a really nice sound that works with all my high impedance cans, T90 included. I'm even rocking (jazzing) out on the HD600 again.

These are my new favourite headphone, I can't get over the level of detail and how big the sound stage is and this is coming from HE-500's/Ms pro territory. Simply amazing. 

 

Did somebody say end game?

If you have a Woo WA7 and a Violectric V800 the you most likely are within the last 2%

I am using Shure 535 IEM. :ksc75smile: I know it won't be able to emulate a full size can. :dt880smile: So, forget I asked, people were telling me on another post that it won't sound like the real thing.

Yes, they're pretty amazing.

Underrated and not as popular as I'd like it to be.

Gonna bring mine to a local meet and let others have a listen to this marvel.

They're baby-T1s.
