Beyerdynamic T90 Discussion and Support Thread - Page 105

Yea, understand how you feel mate. I listened to my Crack for awhile before installing Speedball. In my experience, it retained all of the pre-speedball charm, but sped up (mainly bass) and tightened up. It was all win for me.

That description is helpful, thank-you. I will be making a trip to Bottlehead so I can hear stock and Speedball side by side. What tubes are you using in your Speedball mod Crack?

Will join the Crack Club in a few days. Bought a used Btlhd Crack (with SB) :smile: from the FS/T forum.

TS5998 is a great tube! I enjoy that one, also enjoy an GEC A1834 brown base, several Sylvania 7236, some Bendex 6080WB, etc. Also like the RCA 12AU7 clear tops and CBS Hytron 12AU7.

Just pulled the trigger on a t51p because I wanted something like the t90 that I could use in the library without pissing everybody off. Anybody else in here have one?


I gave the dt 1350 a try and loved it but it clamped way too much to remain comfortable for hours of studying, especially while wearing glasses. I read that the headband on the t51p is completely different and it uses plushier cushions.


I think I'm becoming a tesla addict. Everything else sounds muddled to me. Tried out a sennheiser momentum today for a few hours and I came away unimpressed.

Is there anyone here interested in trade your DT t90 for my Dt880/600 ohm + some cash? My Dt880/600(flawless condition) is just 2-week-old which I bought direct from authorized dealer and I still have an invoice. :ksc75smile: Send me a pm please.

This is an appreciation and discussion thread. Not a place to garner interest on trades and sales. Please keep things of that nature to the classifieds and pms.

I am having mixed feelings still about this headphone. 


On one side it does so much right(comfort, airiness, sound stage, detail).......but no matter what I do this treble spike is killing it for me. I equalize it and it initially sounds better and I get excited about how good they can sound, but then I listen to way lesser cans like an M50 or my dt 250 on my ipod throughout the day, and when I come back to my high end set up at night, I really don't feel I like what im hearing any more, these high's are beginning to become a deal break for me, I should be enjoying the hell out of this set up, but im not.....its just irritating now.......I just think I might be into the warmer/flatter flavoured headphones :/. I've actually given up on them and got my M50's on now. 




LCD 2's/dt880's maybe?

I would suggest try HE 500 then, same amount of detail but bit less soundstage, hence more intimate.

If you use EQ , then why is the treble spike bothering you ?

post #1573 of 4085

I don't want to equalize too much, also plugging in speakers and different headphones I dislike changing equalizer settings. 


I had the HE-500's great headphone.....but found it very uncomfortable. 

post #1574 of 4085

Hmm... then you have no option but to buy the T1  :bigsmile_face:

post #1575 of 4085
The t1 is sweeter but has more of a treble spike...the way I look at it, live music will hurt your ears the same way. Just stand next to a crashing cymbal or trumpet. Imo..a HP that suppresses treble isn't accurate.
