Just got mine. The same build as the DX50, but much tighter jacks so far. Feels a bit more "apt" and responsive. 

Haven't listened so far, need some food first and ever the decision - which record to listen to first?

 

One thing though, what is the extra cable that ends in some sort of square thingie and how do one use it?

Burn in cable. Plug it in and let it burn baby. It just allows you to run without burning out or in your phones.

It is a burn in cable that allow you to run your DX90 with this cable plugged in instead of headphones while breaking it in. It is a nice accessory...at least for those who believe in burn in. You can turn the volume all of the way up while burning in with this cable and not have to worry about damaging your headphones.

When a manufacturer provide you a burn-in cable, that's say something.

 

Personally I hear changes in gear after burn-in, not night and day, but noticeable.

iBasso says the volume doesn't matter while burning in DX90. Maybe for a headphone the volume matters

I'm listening at some classical albums I have (Masters of Classical Music Vol 3). In one particular track "Violin Romance No.2" I can hear the guy take a deep breath during several pauses while playing the violin. I have never heard that before lol. Amazing detail resolution.

 

I quickly went back to listen at the same track on DX50. It's not noticeable unless I concentrate, anticipate and pay attention to it but it sounded very faint and can easily fade in the flow of the music.

 

DX90 is a detail monster.

 

EDIT: I'm using T1 plugged in directly to DX90.

You're talking Beyerdynamic T1?  I never thought to try it with the DX90!  I'll give it a try when I get the chance.

That's correct, please feel free to post your impressions. So far I can't find a track which sounded distorted/clipped on T1. The volume may be limited on a few tracks but it's more than enough for some serious listen.

Did you order from mp4 nation?   When you ordered, did you see Pre-order anywhere?   Coz when i ordered, I didnt see any 'Pre-order' on the title and product description.  And after the 'processing' period, it's now saying preorder! wth?
