T1 is it really step up above DT880 600 ohms?does it really worth paying CAD $999.99 for it? 

post #7727 of 10430
Yes. I'm not touching the 2nd part of that. lol

E: Ok I'll answer w/ my perspective. I've reached the point where $700 is acceptable for me. If you asked me last year, it was around $400-500. But diminishing returns rears it's ugly head. I think I would've gone with just the T1s if I haven't heard the T90s. The T90s are seriously 90% of the way there. The signature and performance is very close. The extra $200-500 gets you a better/bigger soundstage. But I think if I found a way to angled the T90 drivers, I would get similar results. That's why I'm content with keeping the T90s and selling the T1. BUT... I can't guarantee that I won't rebuy the T1 if I find someone to buy the T90s. wink.gif

is it like night and day?

From 880s to T1? Yeah... I would say so.
post #7730 of 10430

 I'am tempted to get the T1 (because it's on sale CAD $999.99)only thing is i can't find a place/store in my area(GTA) to let me audition the T1 before i purchase it.For that amount of $$$$ i don't want to just buy it then sell it afterwards if i don't like it for less than what i paid for that is a waste of time and money for me.I got lots of TIME but not much MONEY.:biggrin:

Is there anyone who can buy and reship from the US? It's going for around $700USD pretty often. Have them claim a lower value to avoid duties..... wink.gif Even after shipping, you're spending waaay less than $1K

E: TBH, going from 880 to T90s is night and day as well. Just not as much but still a good jump. If that's your limit, I would suggest it. It's under $400 on amazon for a warehouse "used".

E2: Oh, I sold my pair of T1s for 625 shipped, within CONUS. For comparison sakes.

Oh, I guess the prices are recovering again. I think a week or two ago, they were around 600-650ish.
post #7736 of 10430

Beyerdynamic cables are really tough so you don't have to worry about that.
post #7739 of 10430

Maybe the cables are tough but they are schiit to work with i don't like how they terminate their cables.Sometimes it's nice to changed your cables for fun even their is not much or no sound changes still fun for me.I actually cut my DT880 cables into half the original length i got so annoyed buy the long cable i tried bundling/braid the cable to make it short but that did not work for me by bundling the cables it makes it feel  like the cable is heavy so i end up cutting it short.Then i tried doing a detachable cable mod for my DT770 and i nearly F up the driver coil they are very sensitive to work with if your not careful you can easily burnt the Driver coils lucky me i managed to reattached it.
