I've got glass too.  In the gain stage from my amp which is the Cavalli Liquid Fire.  Before when I had the Woo WA22  it was too much glass for my taste and was lacking better bass definition.

Please compare in a few words. Thanks.



T1 definately better than RS1 on a lot of aspects (bass, 3D, detail etc), the bottom line is that I don't really use RS1 any more. For fairer comparison you need to vs PS1000 or GS1000i etc.

How about midrange, brightness/highs(extension and detail), PRaT?

PS1000 is higher prized here (EU) then T1, so please compare than GS1000i vs T1.

I'm missing some musicality from T1 right now.

Is the RS1i not more lively-crisp-alive then T1 for vocals ?

But the GS1000i is a bit recessed for singer-voice ?

I think musicality comes from the midrange.

Please confirm.

Just got myself my second T1 c594.gif

As much as I love my HD650 with the Concerto the T1 is clearly a big step up.

RS1 and T1 are simply very different sounding headphones. RS1 has a very up front presentation and limited soundstage, they are "aggressive", punchy and for me a headphone for occasions, there is plenty written about them on these forums.  The T1 is less aggressive, more neutral, circumaural, better layering of the sound, an all rounder that performs well with all genres, completely different presentation to the Grado.

I really don't think anyone can go wrong with a T1. They just sound good from everything and scale well. The HD800s are pickier in comparison and have the potential to sound much worse to much better, depending on the setup (IME).

 

Additionally, for anyone transitioning from the HD650s, the T1s are much easier to adjust to. The HD800s are a wild departure from the 650 Senn sound and a lot of people find the move up jarring.



Hmm forgot to mention that the T1 has the best imaging I've heard in a headphone. A bit better than even the silver-recabled HD800s and LCD-2, which I consider to be top notch in this regard.

i'm talking about fun-factor now. how do they compare ?

firstly i listen to music to enjoy the time together with the records and artists, secondly for everything else (imaging, balance, speed...).

maybe i should try gs1000i or rs1i or rs2i.

post #1089 of 10477

The RS1 is considered the "King of Rock". I've talked to multiple people who own both it and the T1 and they said they came to prefer the T1 for Rock. Considering the T1 is not at all what I would call a Rock-oriented can, that should say a lot.

 

If you want something more musical and involving than the T1, go for the LCD-2, HE500, LA7000, etc.

maybe i'm looking for better comfort too. clamping force on t1 is higher what i prefer. and weight too. i'm looking for maximum 250gramm. t1 is 350 + huge cable weight. (529.5 grams !!! .)

T1...clamping force??

 

If you want significantly better comfort than the T1, all I can really think of is the HD800 and D/LA7000

post #1092 of 10477

d7000 better comfort than gs1000i ?

i heard that gs1000i is the most comfortable grado ever. (after my modded px100-iGrado hybrid)

 

i don't care hd800. looks scary and like an idiot's-gear.

The more i read the more i get the hunch that i'll be getting two new cans. A RS-1 for the agressive sound and a HE-500/T1/LCD-2 for a more balanced/wider sound.

My current cans,DT880 and SR325is, are that way and i like it.

LCD-2 can be insanely aggressive and visceral, it's why I call it the best Metal can in the world.

 

T1 and HE500, yea not so much.
