Thanks...I forgot those were closed...I tend to prefer an open or semi-open headphone, so I'd probably come to the same conclusion you did.

Interestingly, my T1's warranty card that came in the box said 5 years despite the website saying two at the time... I kept warranty card just in case I ever need it, but it's comforting to feel like I have 5 years of warranty should the need arise.

 

As to the speaker discussion, I'm seriously considering a pair of speakers soon. The Decware ERR's really catch my eye, but the Zu Superfly also seems pretty nice. I did check out the Maggies but I'm concerned about not being able to properly power them using a tube amp and the supposedly narrow listening frame that accompanies them. (head in a vice, etc.) I'm attracted to the omnidirectional speakers as I like to sit or lie down sometimes and don't want to miss the sound based upon my position on the couch...

(Alternatively, I'm considering just adding a new pair of cans and tube amp for my bedroom so I can lie down and listen too.... Likely the HD800 and another Decware amp if I go that route...)

 

Oh well.... Thought I'd chime in. :-P

Maggies do have a sweet spot but it's not the "head in a vice" thing that you've heard...I've heard that too and it's jut not true, and the new verions that just came out have an even larger sweet spot from what I've heard. Maggies love tubes, but yeah, gotta make sure you have enough juice or they won't sound their best. 

 

The ERRs are very, very cool speakers...I was close to ordering a pair of those, too. I'd love to audition them still. I heard the Decware Minis are also excellent. 

 

I'm gonna have to be sure to register my T1s with Beyer then so I can see what the warranty period will be...thanks for the info!

I just received my pair of Beyerdynamic T1's. I am quite impressed with how they sound right out of the box. I'm going to let them break-in a few days and I will report how they sound.....

Congrats! My love of the T1 has done nothing but increase since I bought them.

That's funny you should say that, I fell asleep with them on last night.

I fall asleep with them on all the time. That's one of the best parts of my day - heading to bed with my T1s :)

 

One of the things I hated about the Sennheiser 518s that I used to have was the way my ears would overheat within about 15mins of listening. That's one reason why I often prefer supra-aural headphones like several of the Grados. The T1s are the first circumaural headphone that I can wear for hours and remain nice and cool and comfortable. The clamping is perfect and the velour pads are very comfy.

Not if you sleep on your side. Big blocks of metal are never a comfortable pillow. (I also always worry about damaging them in my sleep...)

These are one of the most comfortable HP's I have tried.

If you guys are interested:

 

You can tame some cup resonances with adhesive felt. Just cut the right size ring to put on the inside back wall of the cup. This cuts the back wave from the driver down a lot and also kills resonances. The resulting sound is smoother and effortless. Make sure the felt is 1/8" to 1/4" thick.

Would you mind posting some pics on how to them take apart + put back together without damaging?  Or direct me where I can find some?

 

I'd very much appreciate it!

Sure I'll take some and show you how to take them apart. I'll take those ASAP and post them online.

 

As for the felt, you can get it at Michaels or Amazon. The one on Amazon is pretty nice and recommended > http://www.amazon.com/Black-Pressure-Sensitive-Felt-Sheet/dp/B001ENXGSA/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1338667732&sr=8-5

 

EDIT: In fact I'll shoot a video showing you how to open up the T1 and apply the felt yourself! Hows that? It will be on my Youtube channel, The ZX Reviews
