Right now with only about 4 hrs of burn-in, they already sound great. I'm really glad I sold my Edition 9 to get these. Actually I sold the ED9 with the intention of ordering the T1 but all the talk here convinced me to try the HE-5. I'm glad I checked out this thread because already I like these orthos way better than the ED9. I'm not ready to sell my HD800 though because it's very good in a different way. The huge open soundstage of the HD800 makes music such as big classical works (or any other music that can take advantage of it openess) sound absolutely incredible. The HE-5 seduces me with its rich midrange with music from my favorite female vocalists. I love both of these cans for different reasons.
