Hehe yah seems fishy!!

 

Still wandering about the esp-950 tho..

post #1939 of 10477

Still I wish people would compare light flagship headphones...

 

why would i care for a 550g without cable 2000$ LCD3 headphone...

It might be considerable if they were 250-350g but 550g WTF

 

I currently own a beyer DT250 pair and while it doesn't sound right... it's so light that i don't even feel it on my head.. perfect for producing beats and long time movie, anime sessions...

 

Yet i need an upgrade for production and my final choice are

HE-400 (already ordered but might cancel because of the weight 440g), T1, ESP950,SRH1840

 

Anyway we need a comparative review of all those HE-400,T1,ESP-950,SRH1840.

 

For those who actually use their phone and paying so much for an heavy phone is just plainly stupid for anybody who plan to move their head a little while using them. Like when you have a dual monitor setup on your computer..

Lol, clearly Beyer's sponsorship cheque never went through. Who'd have known the T1 were that much worse in comfort, SQ, design and build compared to the HD800? Anyone who's actually used both know they are completely comparable in all respects. Just boils down to personal tastes, but yes, I'll disregard his reviews. Take them with a pinch of salt.

I know this might open a can of worms, but I'm back at my other half's, and this time only bought the LCD-2 with me. Since I owned the T1's for a bit before owning the LCD-2's, I figured I ought to spend some solo time with the LCD-2's before continuing any comparisons. I've been listening to them solo non stop for 2-3 days now (yesterday for who knows how many hours), and what I'm finding is that unless I'm listening to Hip Hop or RnB, I actually miss the T1's.

 

It's that space, accuracy and imaging. It's just such a clean sounding can, that really gives a level of dynamism and spaciousness that the LCD-2's (thus far) lack. I've realised as well, the high's and mids aren't actually dryer sounding despite being higher peaking, they're actually very sweet and natural. LCD-2's sound natural with female vocals, but ever so slightly too thick and wide spread with male vocals, whereas the T1 nails them. The LCD-2's biggest accomplishment is with the bass and intimacy. It is highly detailed, but in a slightly enclosed, almost claustrophobic and dark sort of way (compared to the T1's and HD800's anyway).

 

All that the T1's need is extra sub bass quantity. It is lacking somewhat, though you might not notice unless you have other cans/IEM's to directly compare to. It's also hard to spot because the T1's mid bass is absolutely amazing. Easily on par with the LCD-2's, maybe even more detailed.

 

The LCD-2's do at times show up a tiny bit more micro detail (I think because of the intimacy and closeness of sounds) but other times the T1's do with the treble detail. But when there's a lot of sounds playing together, it's easier to change attention between different instrumentals with the T1, as the soundstage permits more space around each.

 

In any case, yes, I do miss the T1's. Especially for alternative rock, dance and electronica.

I too prefer the T1 to the LCD-2, as a rule. But I mostly listen to classical.

However each one has its strengths and its place. Sometimes the LCD-2s give me exactly what I'm after (especially now that I've gotten the Lyr set up with some tubes more to my liking).

Might I ask your amp?

Thanks for the great post Naim.

post #1945 of 10477

just love the t1 for rock. nicely detailed but more mellow than the grados with the mids.

post #1946 of 10477

I am one of those people who has spent a year with the D7000s before the T1s and find the T1 bass almost immaculate in every way.

post #1947 of 10477

At my other half's now? Using an AC powered EHP-O2, which actually powers it well, volume wise even on low gain I don't get even close to maxing it. More bass impact and detail compared to the ALO Continental (opposite for the T1's with the ALO, due to the smoother sound and extra warmth). At home waiting for me, hopefully a Rein Audio X-DAC and Violectric V200.

I'm interested in what you think with the V200. I found that the LCD-2s really opened up with at least 1 Watt. The V200 should be more than suitable. Your DAC/source?

 

post #1949 of 10477

Rein Audio X-DAC and source is unfortunately just a Macbook Pro for now. I've certainly heard great things about the V200. Let's see if they live up!

I think you owe it to yourself to pick this CD up:

Just to see how much sound staging is actually on the recording.
