    Beyerdynamic Amiron Home (the new T90)

    That is something I have come to realise.  Its just a shame they don't make the DT1990 with the comfort of the Amiron home's

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Home (the new T90)

    ​Oh totally I realise its always personal preference, but its the factors which govern that preference that make the difference :)  I agree they are more comfortable.  Actually I would like a set that were 75% less clamping force than the DT1990pro's and 25% more than the Amiron homes.  In the...

        Why do you consider them better than the DT1990 pro ?

    Awesome I will give them a try.  Much appreciated.

    Shure SRH1540 Review

    ​Thank you @endgame That's most informative.  Given that, can I digress to the equivalents in open back, IE the Shure SRH1840 and beyerdynamic DT1990pro ?  Have you compared those two, and compared them in the context of being vs their closed back counterparts ?  At the moment I'm leaning...

    Shure SRH1540 Review

    ​Thanks, do you mean the shures have a smaller soundstage but isolate better, or the beyers do ?  how do the mids compare ?  which ones give crisper detail would you say ?  Cheers.

    ​Moi ?  I don't know what you mean ! LOL.  Nah, not really a raucous, just a bit of gentle badgering.  I kinda like names rather than numbers.  Giving something numbers kind of leaves a sour taste in my mouth.  I could make a few scathing remarks but that really WOULD cause a raucous.

    That doesn't really help.  There is no information in that comment.  And there are plenty of positive reviews of the T90 as well.  Its comparison that I'm interested in, not condemnation.

    Closed equivalent of Audioquest Nighthawks?

    ​I'm not sure if its similar signature but for closed ive heard Shure 1540 or beyerdynamic DT1770 are excellent

    ​Think you caught the wrong fish, lol.  I don't think that was me with the musette... I know nothing about DACs and HP amps yet.

      An excellent and thorough response.  And I do take your point.  And I would not pretend to agree that your boss was right, because I don't think she was :)  All that is logic is not necessarily true.  I completely agree with you that enjoying music and allowing it to bring more joy to the...

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Home (the new T90)

    ​And therein lays the problem with any reviews.  Each is completely subjective and has no baseline.  No equal reference.  The only way to really compare is for all variables to be equal, and that can never happen since we all have different ears.

    Beyerdynamic Amiron Home (the new T90)

    ​How much more are the Z1R to the amiron ? 4 times the cost at least... not a valid comparison.  That's like saying a Porsche is faster than a Skoda and expecting the comparison to have any credibility.  The only valid comparisons are to other units within a reasonable price variable, unless the...

    Has anyone had the opportunity, or is in a position, to compare the Amirons to Hifiman HE-560 ?

    ​Hi you wrote if the headband is too tight, just stretch it out.... can you tell me how to do that without breaking it ?  As I find it too tight for me.

    ​fair enough, please can you describe what it is you like / prefer about the 990 compared to 880, apart from the bass ?

    Do I need one ?

    Hi.  I'm a newbie to "audiophile" level listening.  Thus far, Ive only ever had a bog standard type of home audio setup. A couple of years ago I splashed out a little cash on a Marantz MCR610 multimedia player coupled with some small but capable Dali Zensor speakers.  To me the sound quality...

    Beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO - Beyer's open-back mastering headphone

    Yay, 1990's arriving tomorrow.  Should never have returned the last ones.  Having tried the Amirons, I'm looking forward to the crunch of the 1990s.  And having bought them at £466 today, Amazon have already put the price back up to £483.  If they drop it significantly within 31 days I'm going...

    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    ​What would you say the competitors are for the DT880, and what are they for the DT1990 ?  Its hard to know where they are placed.  Also, on a percentage improvement (IE how much better), how would you quantify the all round improvement the DT1990 represents over the DT880 ?  Is there any way to...

    The Beyerdynamic DT880 Discussion thread

    Hi there, Ive been looking at higher priced headphones like the DT1990 and Amiron home etc, but I'm wondering if I am aiming too high.  Initially the DT880's were recommended to me but I decided to go for pricier options.  Now I'm not so sure.  Has anyone who owns the DT880s here listened to the...
