post #1051 of 10478

Here's hoping the T1's have a wider soundstage than the D5000's. Don't get me wrong, the D5000's are a great can, very rich and full, musical. Fun and engaging. Strong bass and nice mids. They sort of remind me of the SE535's but slightly smoother and less mid centric. But compared to my Westone 4's the soundstage and instrumental separation isn't as expansive and it's not quite as detailed either. The W4 is better at pin pointing the little nuances in certain tracks and whilst I enjoy the D5000's, I do miss that extra echelon of detailing. Here's hoping the T1's can provide that, but thus far in my limited experience with IEM's and headphones, I've found myself preferring the SQ out of IEM's over cans. I always assumed it would be the other way around.

The sound stage IMO is the best out of any headphone. It is much better than the D7000 I own and has pinpoint imaging in my system It is wide and very deep with great space and air around the instruments. Layered is a word that comes to mind.

Music to my ears. No pun intended lol.

I think you will be happy. Detail on these cans are a strong point. I said it when I first reviewed them last year here in head fi I found no fault with them and said they were a true 5 star performer and that still applies

IMO the T1 rivals the detail levels of high end IEMs, which is no mean feat.

It's definitely not the absolute best, but it's extremely good indeed.

Yes.

Listening to Pink Floyd The Wall album through the T1 is a revelation in how well the bass does and also the amount of detail leaves my jaw dropping. This headphone is fast and let you hear everything on the recording like no other I have owned. So happy these are back here. The sound stage had everything coming out from everywhere with layers and air. The synergy in my system is perfect with this headphone.

Have you listened to Dark Side of the Moon, MFSL version?  The bass on the T-1's is killer too.  When I did get my Cavalli Liquid Fire broken in and played this it was one of those "take off the phones moments" because it sounded like it was playing through speakers in the house!

I own a 192kHz/24-bit version of Dark Side of the Moon. Is that the same as MFSL? I am borrowing it from a friend. I can't wait for my LF.... :)

I have the SACD and like it as well. I seen Waters do both live and they were the best concerts in 40 years of attending them that I have seen. The T1 reproduces both very very good.

24/192!?!?  Awesome!  I'd love to hear that.  I'd have to believe it would just kill mine.  September is the date Pink Floyd are starting to release their catalog remastered on CD and digital (high-res) download.  I'll be there for that one!

If you want to hear Dark Side at its absolute best seek out a high end turntable vendor and listen to the Vinyl MSFL of the record on a high end system with a speaker sytsem and be totally blown away. IMO there has never been anything better than playing Darkside when I had the VPI Benz Glider rig. Breathtaking. MSFL 1/2 speed mastered one is the one I had owned

I would like to hear that vinyl playback.

 

I'm looking forward to high-res The Wall.  I own the MFSL CD which is great.  The best I ever heard that was the same CD on a Levinson reference system (Big #33 mono-block-tower amps) and MBL Radials.  Incredible.  The T-1's do sound great playing that through them too with the Liquid Fire and W4S DAC2.

In your neck of the woods you have some excellent hi-end brick and mortar and I guess your not too far from Skylab either to hear that. I know Rob has a great vinyl setup. Sometimes I miss my big rig but do not miss the cleaning regiment but man the warm sound of vinyl but digital has come a long long way. The T1 is my go to for everything again. I am glad my journey ended full circle.
