I did have a chance to briefly listen to the HF2s and had a chance to pick them up recently, but I decided to go back to the RS1 (i version this time) because I preferred their more refined sound with better detail retrieval. They are among the best cans for rock AND jazz because of this refinement, while I find the HF2s great for rock, but not so much for jazz.

Just my two cents...

Thanks for the clarification. I hope to test the T1 eventually since I've heard so many good things about it.

Maybe I can save to get the HD800.. All this talk of jaw dropping sound stage has me intrigued.. My own virtually space would be goose bump worthy. I heard the K1000 & it nearly floored me with it's openness.. & would like to compare the HD800 with my other headphones..

Nice thread. I've been reading your posts on the mega T1 thread, but it's good to see them concentrated all in one place as well.

Does a Little Dot or a Corda sound a good option for cans like HD 800 or T1 to you guys?

If yes, which one, possible the ones at the best quality/price ratio, I mean lowest price to drive it decently and expect all the SQ they can produce.
I am so lost in all the reviews of many good amps to finally make a choice.

Fixed that little paradox of yours.

MCH can you tell us a bit more on the T1's bass quality? I understand it's very good but how articulate and tight is it? Is there some degree of "fatness" or boominess to it compared to the HD800? Not that i heard HD800 but i know what a well defined and spring-tight bass is coming from the W5000 and SA5000.

Awesome review , how you compare T1 and D7000 for gaming ?
Thank you

Open headphones are so noisy they are almost like small speakers for people around, so what is the point of headphones in this case? I mean if you soundstage why don`t we all get nice pair of speakers instead of hd800?
post #40 of 913
Open headphones make much, much less noise for others than speakers. When I worked in an office building, I had my own private office, which was great for headphones, but I could never play speakers even a little bit without bothering people outside my office. Plus I needed open headphones so I could hear the phone ring!

As well (note this is a general rule with some exceptions), you can get much better audio performance for the $$$ than you can with full sized speakers.

For me, the reason is that I have a 2 and 6 year old who go to bed at 8pm and I need to keep things quite after 8pm. My home theater is really only used during the day on weekends or when the wife and kids are out of the house.

The quality is outstanding, it is indeed very tight and I don't really sense any more bloom than the HD800s. It just that the HD800s have slightly more control and detail (and maybe more depth too), but only slightly. But as I previously mentioned, I do prefer the presentation of the bass on the T1 with more impact.

I really don't use headphones for gaming much. With young kids, it's hard to pull out Gears of War with all of the blood and gore...

I pretty much only game when they and the wife are out...then it's all full speakers!

But for the explosions, I would say the D7000s can't be beat.

I am a very happy owner of DT990 600 ohms phones. Would the T1 be a big step up?
post #45 of 913
In my opinion, yes definitely - and I also own and like very much the DT990/600.
