 And that comes down very much to preference.  You obviously have an increased sensitivity to treble - compared to me.  I still really like the DT880 - but next to the T1 (direct comparison), it is too polite, where the T1 is the more organic, more vivid, more alive. It's the one reason I always state my personal audio history and bias at the beginning of a review or comparison.  So that it gives people a baseline to start from. Funny that you describe the Tesla drivers as...
 IMO the T1 is outstandingly, gobsmackingly stunning with female vocals.  It's a very vivid presentation that IMO just lifts the upper mids - but doesn't make them peaky - rather it adds a touch of euphoria.  I think this is one of the reasons they climb above the DT880 (and not subtly either).  Norah Jones especially - match made in heaven for me.  I'd classify them as too different to really compare - but I have (in both comparisons) alluded slightly to the difference...
 Then clear the tags compeltely - and mp3tag will do it.  In fact most decent tag editors have this function.
Save yourself some money - T-Peos Altone200 triple hybrid.   My review here - http://www.head-fi.org/products/t-peos-altone200/reviews/11304   Watch for impressions coming in as first people start receiving theirs this week.  These really are something special .....
The tags are stored in the metadata (not the binary code of the track) - so mp3tag can handle it fine. You can choose to delete all tags, or simply list all tags (extended) and delete the ones you don't want.   I've found the easiest way to do it is to put in your preferences what tags you want to keep - then choose delete all and then undo.  Only the tags you want should be restored.  I always do a double check (using the extended tags search) as well - and sometimes...
 Sooo tempted on the WA3 - but I'll never get the HD800 if I keep buying stuff 
If any Kiwis looking for a used pair of DT880s (very good condition & comes with full packaging), send me a PM.  If I don't hear anything by the weekend, they're going up on TradeMe.  Thought I'd give NZ Head-Fiers first dibs.  Didn't want to create a FS for them just yet. 
For larger images (1200 x 800) - please click individual pictures   INTRODUCTION   At the time I wrote my HD600 vs HD700 comparison, I’d mentioned to a few people that I also meant to compare the DT880 properly with my newly purchased T1.  Basically the premise I had with the Sennheiser “duel” is the same with this comparison ……   I needed to thoroughly compare, and formulate my thoughts (subjective as they may be), on the two neutral semi-open backed Beyerdynamic...
 Thanks Vic  If I do get selected - and Tekfusion are OK with it, I'd suggest I send them on to you - and you could then get them around your Aussie tour group.  Might be a good way to get maximum exposure to the brand. A thought anyway. 
Ah - but that's what I meant about using the X5 or X3.  Then you just move DAP (X5 or X3) + the HD600 to any room you want.  Forget about the laptop and dac/amp - you don't need them (except at your desktop)
