Hmm, bright is not what I'd call them. They're definitely warmer and fuller sounding than DT880, but at the same time, clearer. I guess thats what you get with higher resolution. Detail, clarity and sound separation without having a bass light bright sound. They don't sound THAT much better than DT880's, its not like they make them sound like crap in comparison, but its definitely similar to that feeling of seeing an HD picture on the TV for the first time ever after using regular TV's your whole life...if anyone can still remember that moment, since it was quite a while ago for most people. :P
Oh, and just to mention, I have the new T1's, the ones after the last years so called "revision" that some people talked about. I've never heard "old" T1's, but certain people said they compared new and old and old were considerably brighter than new ones.
