The velvet materials used on the headband and ear pads ensure endless listening pleasure and wearing comfort.

Open Design for Extreme Listening Clarity

The T 90 is an open hi-fi headphone, and therefore the ideal choice for music lovers, who listen to their music in acoustically favorable environments. The open design gives the T 90 a spatial sound and avoids the feeling of being isolated from the environment. Due to the latest Tesla technology the T 90 provides extremely high efficiency and low distortion. Silky-soft head and ear pads made of micro velours and microfiber ensure maximum wearing comfort. The T 90 is also made in Germany, as are all premium headphones from beyerdynamic.

Highly Efficient Tesla Drivers

An extremely strong neodymium magnet system offers the T 90 series highly detailed sound reproduction quality, and is mechanically very robust. This increased efficiency also leaves the T 90 series with greater power reserves for precise linear response that is especially suited for high-performance audio applications where precise audio reproduction is the most important consideration. In the T 90, the large 250-ohm voice coil provides unrivaled response clarity and increased impulse fidelity.

To be honest, I feel terrible that I had bought so many headphones and returned them all. I've been listening to the T90 for a month now and the sound just gets better and better. I followed Beyerdynamic advice to pair these headphones with their A 20 amplifier. Not a cheap combination at all, but the crisp, cristal sound is phenomenal. They are a little bit on the warm side though. The treble is high and the bass is tight and punchy but it never feels artificial. It's fun to listen at them; any genre will make you feel young and happy, especially acoustic. The amp is connected to my iPhone 6+ and from that source seems to be the best option in my case. I don't know why the sound deteriorates a little bit when I connect to my 15" macbook pro retina (at some point, I'll try an external DAC). Similar sound headphones to the T90 are the Grado 325e and the Beyerdynamic T1 (surprise, surprise). Just for reference, I did not like the T5p (closed headphones do not sound that great), the boring Bowers & Wilkins P7 (all the money went to the fancy leather), Sennheiser HD650 (hurt my ears), Philips Fidelio X2 (really good for the price), Beyerdynamic DT770 80 ohms (a big, big step-down from the T90), and the Beats Studio Wireless (worst headphones ever at $379.00). So, I'll keep the T90 and the A 20 amp for a very very long time. Thank you Amazon for your patience and your amazing customer service.

Update 6/22/2016: I originally gave the T90s a rating of five stars. While the sonic performance of my T90s is still worthy of five-stars, I have lowered the overall rating to four stars because one of the slider mechanisms failed in less than three years, even though I have handled them with great care. The slider is a metal piece that connects the driver housing (ear piece) to the headband. Due to a material failure in the plastic slider track in the headband, the slider now pops out, leaving driver housing dangling. While I can reinsert the slider into the headband to make my T90s usable for a listening session, I intend to replace my broken T90s with a different model.

The T90s can sound great; but they have some potential flaws. Because of this, and considering their relatively high price, you would be wise to listen to them before you buy. I own many headphones: the T90s are now my favorite headphones for listening to rock or jazz.

SHORT REVIEW:

The T90s sound great when they are matched with a high-quality headphone amp that has sufficient power to drive these 250 ohm headphones. You will NOT be happy with the T90s if you intend to plug them directly into a computer, iPhone, iPod, or the "Phones" jack on a receiver. The T90s will also under-perform (perform poorly) with low-powered amps. For a computer, iPhone, low-powered amp, etc., you will be much happier with 32 ohm headphones.

LONG REVIEW:

If you are a "bass head" you will probably appreciate the T90s (of course, true "bass heads" have a speaker system capable of 130 dB). Folks who listen to rock, rap, modern pop, hip-hop, funk, R&B, and/or club will probably love the T90s: the sound is full and the bass is accurate and plenty (without being boomy).

Simply Fantastic. Detail, Detail, Detail, and lively! Controlled accurate bass but not a lot of bass. If you love bass don't get this headphone.

I compared the T90 to:
- Beyer DT880 600 Ohm
- Sennheiser HD650
- Sennheiser HD280

Comparisons made with the following setup: Mac itunes - FiiO e07k DAC - Schiit Asgard 2 AMP - Audioquest green cables.

I consider the HD280 to be great for $99, with miles and miles of crazy BASS but muddy and lacking in detail compared to the T90.
The DT880 is super accurate, has great detail but almost no bass and is sterile and lifeless compared to the T90. I liked the sound of the HD650, warm, fluid, detailed but not as detailed or energetic as the T90. Also the HD650 were not comfortable... an hour of wearing them and my head hurt. The Beyer T90 I can wear all day with no discomfort. They are so light and comfy.

I prefer the sound of the Beyerdynamic headphones with a warmer, loose sounding amp like Schiit makes. I tried these with a FiiO e09k desktop AMP and the sound was cold and sharp.

I've had these for about 3 weeks now. At first, I burned them in for 100 hours using a tuner/amp in a spare room. Now the sound is oh so exquisite. I've used Senn. HD650 for 7 years and the T90 tromps them bigtime. Bass is tighter and more detailed, highs are more present (along with the sense of air around the music), I'm hearing all kinds of things I didn't know were on my cds, and they look so cool. I tried the 650s again and they sounded muddy by comparison, and they had a silver cable! The T90 is so very comfortable too. Can't say enough good things about them. Just buy them if you can afford to. You won't be disappointed.

Clear, detailed, natural and musical, these headphones perform well above their cost. They're great for just about any genre from classical to electronic, acoustic to rock. You might find yourself listening to songs you normally wouldn't listen to because they sound awesome on these headphones especially if it's a good recording. Even with no burn-in, I prefer my T90 Jubilee to my HD650, HD598 and my DT990 Pros. The Beyer T90 has a nice open sound while the Senn HD650s sound veiled. I've read the T90 delivers about 90% of the performance as the Beyer T1 flagship (known to be a very transparent sounding headphone) at half the cost.

Beyerdynamic raised the quality bar on the Tesla series compared to the DT series. They look and feel more premium and are much more comfortable. Most Beyers have steel headbands with light clamping force that yields all day comfort. I love the velour/micro suede earpads and headpad which breathe much better than leather/pleather.

Out of the box, the bass is ever so slightly boosted and with a little EQ the bass has nice low-end extension while remaining controlled. Mids sound super clear and vocals sound natural. Treble sounds crystal clear without sibilance. To my ears, the HD650 sounds dark and veiled.

These sound amazing with a dedicated headphone amp. These are rated at 250ohm so don't buy this and expect to skimp on amplification. The difference between amped and not amped is significant. If all you can afford is a Fiio DAC amp do it...it'll sound better than without. If you're sensitive to higher frequencies invest in a tube amp or a solid state with warmth or just EQ the higher frequencies until the headphones burn in. The T90 scales well with better equipment and I'm saving up for a discrete DAC and amp to do this headphones justice.
