Leng contact Beyer I bet they will replace it under warrant. Even so it should not be expensive to repair yourself. Sorry to hear it though. Best of luck in a repair

Well I have been a member for a few weeks. I did not like them at first, but more I use them the more I love them. It is just an amazing sound.

What amp are you using with them?

Glad you enjoy them they are not a WOW headphone but one that takes couple hundred hours of listening to really see how good they are.  The most balanced of any headphone I have and still focus better than any I have owned or heard and spatial imaging second to none.

I am thinking of becoming a member. I love my Q701 and am trying to figure out the next natural progression. LCD2/3, T1, or HD800. I'm looking for something that takes all the good traits and improves them. And perhaps a tad more bass.

Look no further - T1s will be your perfect upgrade.

 

P.S. Remember that they also ar equite demanding when it comes to amps and choosing them will mean a new amp too.

Thanks. I realize the M-Stage might not be the ideal amp for the T1, but do you think it may at least be good enough until I feel like upgrading?

The first t1 I bought was using the Matrix so yes its good until you decide on an upgrade.

Thank you. What have you found to be the best pairing for the T1? I am looking to pick up the T1 next month after the holiday season. :)

 

Does anyone have any comparisons of the T1 to the DT990/600? I owned a pair for two days and am already sending them back. The smile curve really killed the guitar tone (very very thin) on the DT990 and brought out some awkwardly prominent sloshy hihats on certain recordings. Along with some way over the top crash cymbal sounds. The usual "s" and "t" sounds were an issue as well. None of these are an issue on the Q701.

People seem to agree that OTL amps great with T1s, especially WA2. Having had that combo for a few months I would strongly agree with those who say that.

 

P.S. Remember, that pairing headphones with the wrong amp will cause sibiliance/ effects you described too.

I don’t have yet a true comparison, but I own both a T1 and a DT 990/600 Ω. This year in May I eventually switched from an AKG K701 to the DT 990/600 Ω, and since this day I haven’t looked back even for one second. I received my T1 only two days ago, so I’m not yet familiar with the sound of this model.

 

My first impressions were great, excellent resolution and separation, but a lack of bass. After I while I noticed that in fact the bass is there in the T1, but not as bold and pronounced. I think after listening for one or two weeks, I’ll certainly prefer the T1. Both Beyerdynamic headphones work very well with my Schitt Valhalla.

 

Both are excellent headphones, and in my opinion AKG has no comparable model in their current product line.

Besides it's tonal balance, I find the bass response the most remarkable aspect of the T1s. They seem to be able to maintain incredible depth and adequate impact without ever sounding muddy. In my experience headphones with as much bass as the T1s always sound 'flabby' at times and never achieve a sufficiently airy sound due to the congestion caused by the low end.

My T1s were a bit lacking in the bass department when I used them with Burson HA-160D. The moment I got WA2 everything changed drastically. I would not say they are bass heavy or anything, but bass is definitely there and not too weak either.

Well stated. 

 

The timbre and texture of the bass is excellent.  The T1 nicely resolves the very low end of a piano, for example.  Many headphones produce mere flabby flatulence when asked to go lower than 75Hz.
