Decide my next headphone purchase: T1 or K1000 or D7000

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I'm deciding my next headphone purchase, leaning toward the T1 or K1000, but I put the D7000 in there for consideration. Please tell me which one I should go for. If I go with the K1000 it would be the bass heavier version

The headphones I currently own are:

R10 (Bass Heavy)
HD800
HD600
HD650
Edition 8
SA5000
DT770

And I just returned the HE-5 for manufacturing Defects.

Please if you don't mind tell me why you chose the specific headphone.

Thanks:-)

With your already owned cans, I would go for the K1000 for something totally different.

T1s

I would go with the T1s personally. But I recommend that you give them all a try first and let your ears guide you wallet.

The K1000s were impressive with my 40 minute trial, but they took a lot of adjustments on my head to get them to fit right. As well, I wasn't as sure if I would like them over the long haul.

The T1s on the other hand are my current favourite set of headphones. They are the best all rounders that I've heard and still don't cease to impress me.

I did previously own the D7000s and they were incredibly fun headphones that were great with rock (although not as good as the RS1/RS1i) and had bass that was very reminiscent of my home theater (with 12' subwoofer).

But in the end I sold them after the T1s showed up for two reasons:

1.) I needed the $$$ to help fund my HD800 purchase.
2.) I literally stopped listening to them once the T1s were in the house.

All are great cans and there is no wrong choice (just maybe better choices...like the beyers IMHO ).

According to Audio Myths yes.

It isn't a myth. It is a fact. I had the opportunity to compare a high and a low serial number K1000 side by side with the same amp and source. The result was obvious as the low serial number one had more bass. It was confirmed by several other head-fiers at the meet who weren't told which one's which. Moreover, AKG themselves had confirmed it.

Since you allready own an R10 bass heavy version there is no need for a D7000 IMO.
If you want to just enjoy your music, I would go for a T1, or a K1000 if no one is near you , also make sure you can properly drive a K1000

what about PS-1000, which would be a great compliment to HD800 -- more fun and powerful ?

Having both and doing the same test, It is undeniable FACT.
The difference in bass output is chalk and cheese between the two.

The D7000 sound like a bass heavy R10, wow!!!!! I don't know if I believe that since the R10 is heralded for its midrange and the Denon's midrange is considered recessed. Can you confirm that you have heard both headphones and the R10 essentially eliminates the need for D7000? Do you prefer the bass light R10?

Hi

I have K1000 serial number 2505. Would they be bass heavy or light? Currently i am running them out of my lavry headphone out and dont feel any bass due to weak amplification.
