@farih

your DT990 playlist is absolutely top notch at showing how beautiful the DT990 is... honestly... I am quite ok with having this can in my permanent collection. for 1/4 the price of the t90's I am very very happy... really surprised schiit fulla handles 600 ohm cans so well... looking forward to comparing it to schiit stack v2 and I know already said this before, just wow these songs really make the DT990 shine, you need to share this playlist on the DT990 and T90 forums on head fi... seriously

edit: @farih part 2: these sound close to t90 I admit, the T90 had this bad habit of the sound "self destruction collapse" when too many instruments played and it sounded awful except for the things it really shined in, the DT990 600 ohm is similar but it has less self destruction moments... and the extra bass... the imaging and soundstage... this is the best $120 i ever spent in my life... the new dt990 pads i put on them are sooo soft and comfy agh absolutely stunning, I'm not fondling them like I did the t90s late at night, but sometimes in the afternoon... made in germany indeed, hot dang boys! here is my headband mod on them, dont laugh, it makes them insanely comfy for some reason lol


@silvrr

it is a good company and he is a nice guy I am sure, just some people don't get along I guess.

If I am going to drop 1 grand on cans, I'd just assume save 500 more for the Ether Flow, the idea of a planar/electrostat sound combo sounds really neat concept and from everything I read about it so far it may be my endgame someday. until then, I am quit happy with my 4 can permanent collection: see sig

On the flipside though, I'm more than happy with the setup I have - I just wouldn't mind a nicer pair of closed back headphones for when I want to tune out the world (especially my upstairs neighbour and his terrible electric guitar playing skills).

The T50RP run ok on my work setup, but I'm not sure I could call it nearly as competent as the O2/ODAC is. That being said, you can see below for some more thoughts on the matter smile.gif.

Someone said it already, but it really depends on the headphone. Most if not everything sounds about 90% as good on my work amp/DAC (GoVibe Magnum) as it does on my home setup. There is a difference, and I notice it with how much I listen to the same music. You notice little things being more prominent or textures in certain ranges that you didn't really notice before. However, that 10% is enough for me to be that much happier and that much more satisfied. The biggest difference I've actually noticed between my work setup and home setup is with the T50RP. These things can get volume from any amp (though not a portable device), but they start to lose their body a bit quicker on a lesser setup.

This is probably the result of both headphones having recessed mids and a "specialized" sound signature. A headphone with a flatter response and good technical finesse, like the K7xx, won't really have this issue.

Ether Flow (and C) are $1,800, you're at 'whatever you want, sans SR-009' territory at that price. All the high end planars seem overpriced to me.

The headband mod might not look the best but I don't doubt that it's more comfortable tongue.gif.

Yup, I can only recommend one headphone in that price range: Stax SR-007A. thumb.gif

Have you listened to any power or speed metal with them? The guitar work tends to get very fast, as do cymbals and drumming, and the HD800S are the first pair of cans I've owned that keep up. I'd imagine Stax would do well in that regard.


I can't remember if I've asked this before or not, sorry if I have redface.gif. I've been thinking about maybe getting my brother some Stax down the line, with the ulterior motive of trying them out myself tongue.gif, if I can be assured that he'll treat them right.

Give me some test songs and I'll let you know what I think later. But electrostatic technology is unparalleled for "speed" and the SR-007A has more treble energy than the SR-007MK1, so I expect good things.

San Sebastian (Revisited) and Wolf and the Raven by Sonata Arctica are fairly good examples of faster songs. Mastering leaves something to be desired with pretty much all metal though.

Edit: Yngwie Malmsteen is a good example of excellent proficiency and has CDs with much better mastering.

Nice you like that list smile.gif
I have a list for the HD650, SR80E and HD558 to allthough the HD558 only has 1 track so far that sounds great on it frown.gif
Still working on the lists though.

Now use these DT990 for hundreds and hundreds of hours and the highs will soften a bit to making them even better IMO.

That "self destruction" will go away a bit after more burn and a good amp helps to.
Its the highs that can become to much at times when songs get busy/faster.

I thought the sound of the DT990 was even better with the Sonarworks reference plugin.
You can try it for free for 30 days.

If you like these you would probably also like the HD650's ;-)
Less impactfull bass, almost same sounding mids but slightly more present with alot more detail. The highs are flat'ish with again more detail.
Take's abit getting used to bass difference though.

Have you allready got/tryed the V90-HPA ?
