On first listen, the T1s are notably better than the DT880s (600). The low end is so good that it's startling. The crispness and "kick" of the drums is really making an impact. Vocals are unbelievably clear and natural. Sound stage isn't huge, but it seems right. (I really can't get over the bass....wow!). This is a much bigger difference than I anticipated...seems like several people told me that they were not a HUGE step up from the 880s, but I'm actually finding them to be well worth the price premium so far. Im going to let them play for a few hours while I head out to dinner and a movie and then will do some more listening when I get home.
The T1s are exceeding expectations so far, though.
Really? I felt that the imaging and soundstage were superb, but I could get over the bass...the bass was quite lacking. :/ Btw, my headphone has be recabled with Moon Audio Black Dragon cable.
Maybe in time, I will learn to love it as much as my D7000. I hope I can obtain the same feeling that you have, but for now, it will be strictly used for movies and classical music.
