IMO, T1 isn't simply a "upgrade " DT880 , but a new standard of headphone's "head-stage", or spatial feeling. With porper drive , T1 would make a special over sized head-stage that can equal , or (IMO) even beat HD800.   Some peole says HD800 has speaker-like sound stage,  this is somehow a misunderstand, in fact HD800 just create a expand or diffused sound picture, not the stage has like-real Perspective and  front to back relations.    So this is T1's...

I start feeling T1's "head-stage" is different animal.   In real "sound-stage", not "sound-picture" means, T1 go rather far than HD800.
  HD650 isn't essential muddy, but Sennisher's silk damper design makes this headphone rather sensitive  about amp's ability to deal with Back-Emf.   p.s. the Sennisher's veil is not only muddy tone, but dynamics compression (soften), this is more critical.      K701 isn't essential  plasticky,  if sound plasticky, this is more about amp's gain mismatch. DT880/DT990's "smiley face" response?  please make sure your system has critically damped.    Those...
errr... Personally i rate T1 as the best  in the three $1000 dynamics.   Rather hard to describe, but the sound scape, or head-stage is more Believable than other two. Although its still not speaker-like (No headphone has speaker-like sound stage, they just has stage so call head stage)   But the front-back releation is much accurate in T1, than HD800 or PS1000.
Key word 1 : over damping   Key word 2 : over shot     Both T1 and HD800 are rather high Sensitivity, Try use some "weaker" amp.
Price.     I am a long-term DT990 user, and consider T1 seems more superior than DT990, Please check my DT990 review. http://www.head-fi.org/products/beyerdynamic-dt990-250-ohm

I would with no hesitation say the ED10. Note that I myself own both the T1 and HD800. Did you heard the true sound of T1? This headphone even hard to drive than HD800.....
Nope, sometime i even feel the adjusting section is too tight to adjust.
