  This is the measure base in the  IEC standard,So you know the real problem is, its not about real HF peaks, just about amp's quality.    See the rather little peaks in 2Khz , 3Khz, 5Khz....?  It's somehow the function of new Diaphragm,Beyer's Engineers done a real Nice Job.in my opinion.     And to those EQer, This is the reason why EQ not much sense here.

Like I said it really shines on anything non-electric guitar it seems.. though on vocals sometimes I also get a high "lisp" that is just really uncomfortable to my ears.   Perhaps the sound will tighten up a bit with more use on the amp? I  have about 25-35...

First impression matters, and this is what those beyers fall.   About DT990's bass, this is a part of the bass- reflex design i guess,  it needs user's head to really fit the earcup/earpads, by  some use time,otherwise would have a overly-damping bass- just like those Grados. (Irony, this is some peoples " too bass-heavy" )   I mean, Grado's over damping bass is one essential part of its tone: make funny mid-bass bump/punch , But this is not the case of...
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...

Are the earcups generous in size?  It's like combine open-type's airy and close-type's bass.     Earcup's not big/deep as HD800, but headphone more easily "disappear" .

With my reference cans I saw no reason...
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...
