 Most probably (99,9%) it's caused by badly mastered recordings, which are easier to find nowadays than grains of sand on a beach.
 That's why if you live in Europe, the only place where you should buy headphones online is thomann.de. :P
 Again, what kind of decoder are you using to make your mp3's? There are big differences between two 320 mp3 files depending on how you make them. That's why you have mp3's that are like 3-4 MB's in size, and those that are 12-13 MB in size for an average track.Are you doing ABX testing? That is the only test you should do because anything else is prone to placebo effect. I'm the type of person that hears the pin drop in the apartment next door while I'm vacuuming and...
Ok I've just spent some time comparing the T1's to DT770 Pro 250's...and I have to say, they are extremely close. Out a Schiit Asgard 2 and HRT Music Streamer II, which is my college setup, the only differences between them is that T1's have slightly less sub bass and an almost compressed and plasticky sounding bass,  sliiiiiightly bigger soundstage and smoother highs, and slightly more lush (but less clean, almost muddy) sounding mids.  Vocals sound virtually identical on...
 It takes about 3 seconds to google it and see that Marantz says in every single spec sheet that it uses a dedicate headphone amplifier. http://us.marantz.com/us/products/pages/ProductDetails.aspx?CatId=HiFiComponents&ProductId=PM6005"Fully Discrete Headphone AmplifierFor superb sound quality with the widest range of headphone types, the PM6005 features a fully discrete headphone amplifier that is able to handle just about any headphone type, regardless of impedance or...
Did anyone try the brand new DT770 Pro's lately? I just got the 250 Ohm version, the newest one, in that new box with an opening flap, the carrying bag, etc.  Is it just me or do they sound significantly better than they used to?  I mean, I had every headphone in the Beyerdynamic DT lineup, 770Pro 80, 770Pro 250, 880 600, 990Pro 250, as well as T1's, as several cheaper not so popular, but still awesome models like DTX-910 (aaaaaa-fcking-mazing for the price btw), etc. so I...
  So...let me get this straight. You don't want to listen to the headphones with the stock cable, but you know that the aftermarket cable makes them sound much better?
6005 has a dedicated DAC and a dedicated headphone amplifier. Haven't heard them with speakers, but 6005 is superior for headphones.
  How are you creating your mp3's?  Because a properly ripped 320 kbps mp3 should be virtually indistinguishable from a FLAC.  I mean, I can't tell a difference between a 24/192 hi-res file and a 320 mp3 made out of that 24 bit file on Beyerdynamic T1's plugged into a 2000 dollar DAC/amp. I'm talking about ABX testing in Foobar...in 99% of cases can't even notice the slightest difference. Only with some extreme examples there might be tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiny differences in...
 Well I can tell you that a Nuforce HDP (which is much more powerful than Udac) barely has enough juice for K612's and with some silent recordings, like binaural stuff, sometimes not enough volume.
