Has anyone tried the 1770 pleather pads on the 1990?
Yes, it sounds horrible.
Anything in particular it did to the sound you didnt like?
Good day everyone,
I have a friend who is interested in these headphones.
He's wondering if they can be powered by an iPhone 8.
Does anyone have an impression of this combo?
Would it work well enough?
An iPhone8 should power the 1990 adequately but to really sing they need a portable amp.
Thanks for the reply!
Do you have a portable amp in mind that can be connected to the iPhone 8?
More affordable if possible..
I don't myself, I use a desktop amp/dac, but something like a Fiio A3/E11k, or another Fiio E17, should do a pretty good job and they are under $100. Hope this helps!.
Wouldn't be so sure about that. My DT 1990 didn't like my Oppo HA-2 all that much in terms of getting there. Good, but can be better with a desktop AMP.
Hello! Honestly I'd say for them to really shine they require some serious AMP. No iPhone can do that. One certainly would not get their true bass whatsoever and they can vibrate and punch very hard, they can get thunderous!
I accidentally had the chance to listen to them with another DIY 4xD3A tubes amplifier, I was shocked by the bass these can produce (now I want that amp, awww)! As I've said before the 1990 have so much hidden potential when properly amped its unbelievable.
Maybe, some kind of portable AMP could help your friend with the iPhone 8 (I'm no so sure about that either).
I just bought a used pair of these and I really like them, my only problem is that the soundstage is smaller than I expected, barely bigger than my K550. Yet, I read many reviews praising the soundstage, which confuses me. I'm using a Schiit Magni and Modi to power them.
Burn it in for 600 hours and quadruple your DAC and amp budget.</sarcasm>
Depends which pads you're using, B pads have a narrower soundstage, A pads have a wider soundstage.
I am using the A pads
I don't think I'd ever describe the soundstage as large. Using the B pads, it's about comparable to the HD 650, which isn't known for its vastness.
It's a little larger when I use my Quickie/Quicksand combo. I'm not sure if it's the tubes or the power that effect the soundstage.
Anyone compared them to the 1770 pro? I have the 1770s,and wondering if its worth getting the 1990s as an suppliment to the 1770s? The price is good on the 1990s now.
