    Hello All,   I just received my Beyerdynamic DT990/600 Ohm headphones and have it paired with the Fiio E17.  It sounds really good but I was wondering if it was worth the upgrade to a tube amp <$200.  My budget is really tight at the moment.  I would like a WA3 or MKIV but not happening at...

    Need <$150 AMP for 250ohms

    Hi   I'm looking for a decent headphone amp that can sufficiently power a pair of DT990 250ohms for under $150, closer to $100 would be nice. I want something with plenty of power, not something that just barely makes the cut. I tend to listen to music rather loud.   I've looked at a few...

    New DT990 Pros sound worse with Objective2?

    Hello Head-Fi, I just purchased a pair of DT990 Pros and an Objective2 from JDS Labs. (I'm using a UCA-202 DAC). The sound isn't very smooth, I hear hiss and there is distortion, I'm using the lower gain option. If it matters, I'm listening to all FLAC. Any suggestions? Thank you.
