post #10471 of 10477

Mine sound great out of my Master-11, but would love to use them in balanced mode because of the increase in volume and, well, because all the chicks love balanced headphones right?

Bought a Garage Polaris recently for when I didn't want to wait for tube warm up and short sessions. Never tired my T1's with it thinking it just wouldn't do them justice. Pleasantly surprised to find out I was wrong. T1's sound pretty stellar from the Polaris, I prefer my tube amp, but for short sessions its been a pretty capable amp.

Looking for recommendations for a specialised company or fellow Head-Fi member - based in the EU - to have my T1 modded and have a Black Dragon V2 cable reterminated for it.

Have been eying on this one https://customcans.co.uk/s/s/index.php/beyerdynamic-t1-modifications.html

Also, in your opinion what would be the best way and type of (interchangeable) connection for the T1 and to what result?

Thank you

Mini-XLR is what I've used for removable cable mods on my T1 & DT-990.  Never tried the Black Dragon cable so can't comment about it.  I usually use Mogomi, Canare and Cardas cables which I've found to be sonically the same as my Forza and Double-Helix cables at 1/5 the price, but this is just me.

Thank you, much appreciated. Couldn't resist a very good deal on a lengthy Black Dragon so I took it. Very happy with the T1 I think it's worth to have it modded for connectors and experiment with that. If general consensus is mini-XLR the ideal standard for the T1 I'll go with that. Thanks again.

You wouldn't happen to have any experience with the UK CustomCans guys or know anyone who to trust my beloved T1's with?

Sorry, I'm in the US and haven't dealt with any custom modders.  I have talked with PETEREK (has a thread on all of his custom mods) and he has provided me with much valuable info for modding.

 

Doing the mini-XLR mod is not the easiest but if you feel like getting your feet wet with DIY its a nice place to start.

The mods on that thread look great, however I don't intend to screw up my cans even if it looks easy, I know my boundaries and like the T1's.

@all: Still open to any suggestions for companies in the EU to perform cable mods on the T1
