Although the wireless version is already out there, I believe these are still some of the headphones I've ever used. I haven't used plenty, but these are FUN cans to use, especially with a good DAC/amp combo. I would say the midbass is a bit recessed, but low end still kicks, with a sweet midrange and detailed highs, without the harsh treble some Beyer's are known for. I wish a shorter cable was included, and the included case is decent, but overall, it's a wonderful headphone for many music styles and for extended listening periods.
Hey so I have the DT 1990. I'm running it off the Fiio E10k and I'm not totally happy with how the dac/amp sounds. The only other amp I've tried is the portable Fiio A5. I prefer the sound of the A5 but it doesn't fit my needs for a desktop dac/amp. Got any recommendations?
Check out Schiit Audio's offerings. You can get a Magni 3 Amp and Modi DAC for under $200. Add the Loki EQ to modify the sound to your liking, if you wish. I currently run the Valhalla 2 with NOS National/Panasonic 6922 triodes and a Bifrost DAC with the dual AKM 4490 chips, and it still rocks after owning it for 2 years.
