I have SR325is and a DT880. If the T1 is a "supersized" 880 and the RS-1 is a "supersized" 325 they should compliment each other AND be good with metal. Also, from what i read is that a RS-1 isn't up there in overall quality. 

I'd say, get a 225 or a 325 and see if you really do like the grado sound.

 

Involving is subject to taste. I find the DT880 involving. Its the soundstage and the clarity that does it, not the mids like the grado's.

Everyone is trying to help and you start kicking them in the jewels because they tell their thoughts, which dont seem to line up with yours.

What's all the fuss about? Get a Grado, you definitely need to try one. They are very engaging and fun. I've owned the 225 and HF-2 and extensively auditioned an RS-1.

Agree. They will be mine in a few short weeks. They sounded incredibly balanced when I auditioned them. I love my D7000's but need to trim a little bass and add some midrange, I think this might be the ticket.

ALL ABOARD! I'm on!

   agoston.berko - personally I think T1 is musically involving enough. And if you really want more 'fun factor' why not try DX1000, it blows RS1 out of water IMHO.

Look also at the Koss ESP950 + good stax amp or maybe pigtail if it can work with one..

 

From what I heard its very confortable and light something like 283g. Not so good construction but lifetime warranty.

 

My DT250 are so light that i dont feel them on my head. Its very hard to go back to 350g+ headphones.. I even forget them sometimes while listening to nothing hehe.

 

On my part, I think my best bet will be those Koss or T1 with light cable or T70 (if imaging and soundstage is still excellent).

 

In the end, I wish headphones companies WAKE THE F.. Up and make lighter phones with lighter materials.. What is the point of making it heavy?? Any dynamic headphone company should be able to make 250-300g well built and solid pro audio headphones..

 

Its because the community doesnt blast them that they continue their stupid designs. What the point of having ergonomic everything if you have a brick on your head that is stressing the neck and circulation to the brain.. Even the clamping force is dangerous for tinnutus.. one headphone did that to me. As soon as I changed to a low clamping force headphone, it was a lot better.

 

Anyway, if i had more information on the koss like soundstage and imaging compare to the T1, it could help me make my choice.

I was going to order it to A/B, but many friends here did the comparisons and all told me not to bother with the r2. They all say it's technically more proficient (more detail, bigger soundstage, tighter bass etc) but it loses a lot of the power and soul that makes the r1 so amazing. If I want some more technical proficiency I can just slip on the T1 or HD800.

 

I can understand people coming from Grados will find the LCD-2 r1 weird for Metal because they're used to the edge that brightness brings. But after a little acclimation I could never go back.

 

The LCD-2 r1 has plenty of top end and in fact it extends very far, it's just not prominent because the signature focuses on mids/bass. Honestly, I come from using already bright D2000s with Crystallizer and EQ Rock... so if I could get used to it, anyone can redface.gif

just for clearance: Beyerdynamic Tesla T1 -> 66 own it , 13 had it

thats 20%
 



 

Just gonna come out and say it, you're being extremely annoying. You PMed me for days asking countless details about the T1 and reassuring yourself it would be the best thing there is, and now here you are complaining about it and asking us to convince you that the T1 is in fact boring and the RS1 will be the fun you crave. You've already made up your mind so just go with that.

 

Also I really hope you're not using that statistic as an actual means to evaluate the headphone. For starters, tons of people (hi) haven't put down that they own it there.

Just don't go into the Grado threads afterwards and complain about them having less soundstage than the T1.

Yep, it would be perfect for you.

Thanks. I may A/B with an LCD2 as well, even though in my 45 minute store comparison I preferred the T1 by far for both sound and ergonomics.

post #1137 of 10479

okay...... ANYWAYS. 

 

are there any amps in the 300-400$ range that you guys enjoy with the t1?

I believe the Concerto would be a good solid state option for the T1 and is close to your budget.

On the high side of prices you can get a used Woo Audio 3 amp for $400 or so used. You could also get a Little-Dot MKIV for $300.

 

A real cheap one that does a nice job is the PHENIX G3. Sure it's not WA3 or Little-Dot good but it does a nice job for what it costs. Oh and about the cost, it's only $160 shipped from ebay.
