    Now with 300% more treble!

    They're using fabric to control the treble. As the DT 1770/1990 PROs.

    It looks like the Amiron Home is the non-studio (and balanced cable friendly) version of the DT 1990 PRO.
     
    I wonder if they are tuned any differently?

    Indeed.
    The sound signature must be very close to DT 1990.

    I had the 1770's.  It was much better than the 990 premiums I had, but had to get rid of both.  Just too much treble for me.  Fatigue inside of 20 min is... it's just downright excessive.  
     
    Darn shame too, I like Beyer's build quality and comfort.   If any of these new Beyer models well and truly tamed the shrill highs, I'd buy in a heartbeat.

    They say that DT 1990 is even brighter than DT 1770.
    The only beyer with smooth treble that I know is the DT 150.

    So it means T90 is discontinued? 
     
  10. XERO1

    ​Yep.
     
    I wouldn't be surprised if Beyerdynamic soon announces a closed-back replacement for the T 70 as well.

    Sooo....  beyer has just released the DT1990: a $600 open backed, full size headphone. Now, after a bunch of people have bought the DT1990, they release the Amiron, a $600 open backed headphone. Interesting marketing strategy.
     
    They'll probably have a different tuning from the DT1990's though, to make it so that they don't have two products in direct competition with each other. What tuning they'll use on the Amiron, though, I have no idea. It would be ironic if they brought back the treble spike [​IMG]
     
    I am interested to see what the do about the T70. they can't replace it with a $600 pair of headphones because it's about $300. (I got mine new for $270) The T70 also has a... unique... tuning that I don't think many people like. I don't like mine without a 5db bass boost and a notch at 8khz. It makes me wonder about the tuning they'll go for on a replacement (if they do make a replacement)
     
    Looking forward to impressions in a month [​IMG]

    Woo excited. Not a fan of t90...hopefully things get better here. But the design is very meh.

    I actually quite like the new design, I disliked the stock T90s' look (mine are Jubilee edition) so to me this is definitely a step up.
     
    That said, I'm VERY intrigued to see how these turn out - the fact they have warm as a headline for these has me super pleased as aside the kill yourself treble on most their headphones I quite like their tuning. " All in all, this adds up to a warm, stress-free sound with fascinating spaciousness – as intoxicating as in a live concert." is very far from their previous iteration at least, hopefully they're not exaggerating!

    I'm not a fan of having any kind of cloth on the outside of a headphone, so I'm glad to see that go away.
     
    IMHO, the newer Beyer's (T1 2G, T5p 2G, DT 1770) are a little too mellow for my taste.  It looks like the Amiron Home will be probably be voiced similarly. [​IMG]

    I hope this sounds like the DT 1990 Pro because I love that hp. This looks to have dual entry removable cable so the optional XLR cable from beyer would work.
