Thanks! It's a demo (but looks like new) so I got it at a lower price. Didn't expect Beyers to sound this good, very nice upgrade from HD 598's!

But the Beyers impressed me so much that I went back to the shop today with selected CDs from my collection, and sat down for several hours and listened very close to the T70 and T1. Both sounded good but in the end T1 won for me. I think the T70s are a lot brighter and sound kinda tinny compared to the T1.

 

Now I sit at home with my newly found love the T1. smily_headphones1.gif

 


Congrats! I've got the first pair sold in Canada here (more than 2.5 years) and they still manage to impress me every time I listen to them.

You didn't listen to the T5p? The T1 vs T5p comparison should be interesting and a lot closer than say the T70 vs T1 or DT880 vs T1.

BTW, if anyone needs an extension cable for their T1, contact Drew at Moon Audio (one of the site sponsors). He has stock T1 cables that he can fashion into an 8' extension for around $60. I needed a little longer run for mine, and even though I love my Grado extension cable I wanted to match the same cable the T1 is already using. Probably won't be any difference in sound, but still...

I didn't shy away! tongue.gif I guess it could have been interesting to follow the break in process of a brand new pair, but this is more convenient. A guy at the shop said theses phones require several hundred hours to break in completely, don't know if thats true.

Thats cool! Saw your posts that you prefer T1 to HD800. Do you know the exakt announce and/or release date for the T1?

No sorry didn't listen to T5p. I did however buy the Musical Fidelity M1 HPA amplifier together with my new T1 phones. Did use it during the listening session and think they sound wonderful together. My poor wallet! redface.gif

Just ordered a 25' mogami extension from amazon.  should let me reach my comfy chair:) 

 

On another note, absolutely loving these T1's.  Can't go back to any of my other phones anymore without just picking them apart.

Grado's cable and the seller on ebay make good cables. Either is a good option.
