All of the hifiman products I've heard just sound plain wrong, even with high-grade source components, crazy tube amps, etc; I'll take the T90 or HD650 over an HE-5 any day.

 

Actually, now that I think about it, maybe it's just me, but all of the planar-magnetic phones I've heard have a slightly veiled sound accompanied by an awkward peak somewhere in the upper mids/lower treble that just sounds wrong to my ears.

 

A subscription to Tidal and a Fiio E18 make my LCD-2F shine.

Yeah, I know the LCD-2 can sound good with lesser sources; I've seen people who use them with the Magni/Modi stack, and Mike Mercer raves about using them with the HRT Microstreamer, but to my ears, the 650 and T90 come closer to their full potential from modest sources than the way-high-end stuff.

Have you tried the T90 with Woo audio amplifiers such as Wa6se?

I haven't. I'd love to. I had a WA6 for awhile, but that was before I had a T90. Is it a nice pairing?

Not sure I have not yet tried with them both. I am currently using Lehmann audio BCL with my T90, sound quality is very good with such pairing. If someones said that Matrix M stage or lovely cube are the same, they are definitely lying. BCL is such a good amplifier.

post #2526 of 4135

I've heard really good things about the BCL. If it were a good match for orthos, I'd consider getting one. But I'm "reasonably" confident that I want to go all and only ortho, which, sadly, limits my amp options.

Given both have few hours on them
v800>v200/WA6SE


700

May I know how the T90 sound with the WA6SE? Do you recommend them? How does it compared to other amplifiers such as Lehmann audio BCL?

Wow, way to zombie a almost 2 yr old post. You might want to try PMing the OP since they've been long gone at this point. In fact. That was their last post in this thread. 12/20/12

I found a good deal for some HD650's in like new condition on ebay for $300. I couldn't resist. They should be here around Thursday. Unfortunately I just had to send back my DACmini to CEntrance for an RMA.

Hi there,

 

I'm thinking about getting some T90's as they seem to be getting some good reviews out there (and going by these forums). I'll be using my Oppo HA-1 so driving these headphones won't be a problem and from a what I've been reading to get the best from the T90's they deserve a decent dac/amp. ;)

 

Never had a set of semi-opened headphones before so will be a new experience for me but they sound like they suit my music tastes very well.

 

Should be a good match with my Oppo HA-1. What do you reckon?

 

:)

The Oppo HA-1 has a lot of power but lacks details and clarity. The T90 is a very efficient headphone thus the Oppo HA-1 does not pair well with the T90 headphones.

The OPPO amp will work very well with the T90's....

 

imo

The amp on the Oppo HA-1 is very, very good. I can hear loads of detail and clarity with my music. Everything sounds amazing through it!

 

Guess you have not heard one in person.

 

It's an excellent piece of kit, that I do know.

 

I'm sure the T90's will work perfect. I'm gonna get a set soon so I'll find out!

The HA-1 is very clean and detailed as long as you're not listening to a substandard headphone like my old worn-out K340's. In that situation, the problem would not be with the HA-1.

 Sadly, my K340's are now only a shadow of their former selves.
