I'd to hear it q.q

I think it's certainly a little overblown here. I'm excited to try the Vali with my T90's. If it's not my style, oh well - easy to resell. I'm having mine recabled next week, however that's purely for the modular cable piece and not for some magical SQ improvement.

Now this makes sense to me.

Me too. It rather irritated me that a headphone as expensive as the T90 had an attached cable.

I actually was a little shocked when I opened the box on these and saw the cable. Even my Q701's were modular. Hopefully Beyer learns their lesson and starts to do this.

The cable is the only complaint I have about the T90. Lack of cable flexibility sometimes interferes with getting lost in the music.

Yea it is a little annoying, None of the Beyers have Modular cables... but thats what mods are for though

I haven't had any issues with any of my Beyer's non-detachable cables so for the time being I will forgive Beyer on account of the fact that, despite being non-detachable, the Beyers I own have the thickest and most durable cables of any headphones I've tried.

It's the thickness I actually dislike. They get easily coiled and just don't hang easily if they aren't kept perfectly straight or untwisted prior to connection.

So i've been using the new Schiit Vali with my T90's over the past 2 days and so far it's a very synergistic pairing. Great mid-bass slam and a bit longer decay on the mids to low mids. Very lush, full and overall just fun to listen to. Definitely not as quick as the O2, but a great euphonic listening companion.

Came here to say this myself. They are wonderful together. Another very positive recommendation for the pairing.

How do the T90s compare to the DT 990 600 Ohms? Are they really worth the extra cash? I love my DT 990s but I'd be a little wary of spending that much money for a pair without a replaceable cable.

Hi:

I just received my T90s and having come from Senn HD 650, I find T90s way too bright. I am wondering once broken in do these sound a little less "bright"?

That's your problem. The 650 to my knowledge is very dark. I've heard people call both the HD598 and T90 bright, which I don't understand. I have both and while they aren't bass heavy, they are what I would call lively. I would call Grado's piercing highs bright. 

 

Just give the T90 a bit, you're used to an entirely different sound is all. Find the new strengths in the T90 for what it is.
