    I haven't seen them that low since the holiday season. I got mine for less, but at $500, it's a great deal.

    Congratulations on your new Beyers, they are fantastic!, you're right they don't go down much, although I've noted with Amazon they can go down on a Friday.

    I love my DT1990s, but I have a serious comfort issue with the headband after extended listening. The headband padding seems a bit thin and I get a serious hotspot on the top of my head. I have tried a few headband cushions to add extra padding but can’t find one that fits.

    Has anyone added extra cushioning to the headband? If so, what did you use?

    i know it's not premium version, and it's way cheaper, but just for info
    i have done on mine dt770 leather strap mod, fits perfectly on them, and it's held in with stock like screws, just a bit longer
    i also had situation like you, with hotspot on top of my head, leather strap is masive improvement in comfort for me
    since dt1990 uses same 2 screw sistem to hold the slider part, maybe you can mod it in the same way, if you are willing to mod 500$ headphones in first place
    i should mention that the mod is completely reversible, and bringing them to stock is a breeze

    Thanks for the info. I will check that out.

    Just picked these up. I think I can sum it up by saying they are like a precision tuned Lambo or Ferrari.

    [edit: I got em off of amazon, new, for $479/no tax. Jumped on it.]
    cardeli22 and FND_UA like this.

    got the dt1990 recently. using the DragonFly black 1.2 as my DAC and Magni 3 as the amp. Im thinking I can do better, on both the setups, any dac amp ( non tube) suggestions?

    Do you really need the Magni? I have the Amiron Home and use them with a DragonFly black without anything else and get enough volume. I also have a small Ifi and if you want to go one step up the Ifi Nano iDSD Black Label seems to be popular. If you can afford it the Ifi Micro iDSD Black Label is said to be much better. Otherwise I would probably go for the Chord Mojo. Or the Resonessence Herus.

    The DF seems to power it fine, but im kind of like how the magni changed the sound, in comparision to the DF ( which seems great on its own ). Is the Nano better than the magni?
  11. headphonedreams
    Can't say, I haven't heard the magni. The DF gets better with the Jitterbug, if you want a cheap upgrade you could order one. Even the DF Red is said do be better with the Jitterbug. The DF Red might also be a good upgrade. It probably comes down to how much you are willing to invest, the DF Red should be better than the DF Black and the Mojo or Ifi Micro should be even better but more exepensive.

    Has anyone experienced creaking noises from the earpads on these? I really enjoy them but this noise is maddening.
  13. Schlurm
    I have, although for me it wasn't from the earpads. It was from the plastic clips which held the headband adjustment mechanism. I bought my first unit from Amazon and I returned that one due to the creaking when I moved my head around. The replacement fixed the creaking problem.

    I have both the Magni & the Micro Black. I find the iFi works better with the 1990. My opinion, the Magni offers a clearer but dryer sound, and the 1990 doesn't need more of that. The iFi offers a slightly darker, smoother sound, And that works better with the 1990. Once again, just my opinion and I'm sure others will differ.
  15. Deckard916
    Hmm, I don't think it's the clips, maybe I just have a fat head or something. Tried adjusting the earpieces but that didn't really seem to help either. Is there any way to lessen the clamp pressure? Maybe bending the headband a bit? I've been afraid to try that tbh lol.
