the human ear is very sensitive for the midrange. much more than for highs and lows.
if the midrange is more emphasized (pronounced), the more attantion your brain becomes from music because the top end and bottom don't disturbs the midrange detections so much.
the human-voice is the most important instrument in music. everything else is secondary.
that's what grado does for years. and they succeed.
you will get the most emotions from male and female singers. thats normal, humanbeing. we love our organum for thousands of years. our ear is hungry for natural sounds.
lower treble and bass could be sometimes more fun than linear listening sessions with ultra-balanced characteristic like T1.
even iGrado can sound sometimes more involving than T1. yes! ... I KNOW it sounds weird but its true. so high fidelity is not everything.
sometimes i want to feel the music, not hear it. T1 is spectacular but not a fun-can. if somebody suggest it is, thats because he/she dont want to realized the fail-purchase in that area.
people will say it very rare for a 1000+$ headphone that it is NOT envolving.
thats because of the hard earned money from what they bought it.
i understand this point. but T1 should consider (reconsider) for a german nr 1. or something like that and not for emotion-can. and thats sad for the prize. but for german ears this is best (and hd800). the headphones produced in germany are precise and fast and hard and punctual, and technology oriented. the achivement is stunning, but more for the ears than for your heart.
somebody gs1000i vs t1 ? or rs1i vs t1 ?
wow i'm #1111 post number here :-)
