Sorry about your T1. I would be very mad to come home one day with my T1 chewed up.

 

I wish I had that bone with me when I was sleeping! lol  It's just funny how the smallest event can end up having such consequences. If his little nylabone had just been in the bed, I have no doubt he would have left the T1s alone...but just this ONE day it happened to be in the other room rolleyes.gif

Yo,

 

Not to derail but how old is your puppy? I hope you have the Nylabone's made for puppies or at least the FlexiChew versions. Stay away from the DuraChew's until the dog is over half a year in age. Giving them a DuraChew can possibly break his/her puppy teeth.

 

Working at Pet Supplies Plus for 5 years surely has improved my knowledge of dogs...

 

Back tot he topic!

It may be that Drew from Moon Audio and my puppy are working together, I'm not sure...but was thinking that since this won't be covered under warranty that maybe a re-cabling with some Dragon wire was in order. Was hoping some of you guys could chime in with re-cabling suggestions and what you've found works best. I'm not a big believer that cables make much difference, but I'm open to using this opportunity to take a chance. 

 

To maintain the value of your T-1s, I'd suggest sending them to Beyerdynamic and have the damaged cable replaced with the same one it came with.

 

Recable jobs are a slippery slope. 

 

You, of course, may do as you like.

Thanks, that's exactly what a buddy of mine said...I'm hoping to hear back from Beyerdyamic tomorrow to see what the process/price is. I don't have any plans to sell them at all, but keeping them in original condition might be the smartest way to go, especially since there is no damage at all to the headphones themselves...just the cable.

He just turned 16 weeks...just a little guy. And yeah, you're spot on with that recommendation...I think my lady friend got the nyla bone from her vet and it was indicated for puppies. If there was an "awesome puppy" competition, this little guy would win...wire chewing aside lol.

Good point, but Drew at Moon Audio is authorized by beyer for aftercabling services and all warranties are intact.

Been spending a lot more time with the T1's.  I've discovered the joy of listening to vinyl with these headphones.  They are revealing layers of inner midrange detail that I've never heard before.  I've always felt that my vinyl rig greatly exceed my digital rig's ability to resolve midrange tone and texture, and this is made blisteringly obvious when listening through the T1's.  The more I get used to headphones of this caliber, the harder I'm finding it to return to my fairly "mediocre" speaker system.  I'd have to spend thousands upgrading my speaker system to get anywhere close to this level of detail.  Of course speaker systems give you that sound that's in front of you, which is completely different than headphones.  But for sheer emotional impact, these headphones are incredible.  I feel that at this point, my speaker system is around just to give me a change of pace from listening to headphones, when I get tired of that "inside the head" sound.

I didn't know that...no wonder why Drew had extra T1 cables on hand when he made me an extension cable...

Well after a month or two with the HD 800s-I'm coming back to the fold. My T1 should be here approx. Wednesday. Although my Zana Deux finally transformed the Senn into a headphone I actually liked-I just find myself missing the glorious midrange of the T1's that I found I just can't live without-despite the Senns technical prowess. I'm pretty excited to hear these on my Zana since there are almost ZERO impressions of merit here on Head-fi of the combo. I'll post impressions here when I get a chance, of course.

Nice! You gonna keep both or just the T1s? Seems I've read quite a few posts where people really like alternating between the two of them.

Hi,

 

For me I prefer the T1 to the HD800. As good as the HD800 it, it's not the T1. The T1 has a signature that I really do love a lot and have not been able to find a headphone that is close to it.

No I sold the Senns to fund another T1! I think they are probably similar enough that they would be somewhat redundant for me-especially since I don't really listen to classical that much. I feel like the T1 simply still has the 'soul' of the music if you will, whereas the HD 800 seems to have lost that in favor of neutrality, but not necessarily of naturalness. I also believe that the T1 doesn't really give up much of anything technically to the Senn, despite what many here would have us believe. I even think the Tesla is a more transparent headphone, or at least it seems that way with it's more realistic soundstage, idk. Next up: another AD2000 to finally pair with the Zana which is a combo I've been dying to hear since I first joined Head-fi.

Yo,

 

Sir I take my hat off to you. I've always felt the T1 was on the same level as the HD800, but just flavored different. To me the T1 has more transparent mids as well as a much more natural sound to it.

I have been listening for about a week now with the Yulong D18/Mjolnir/T1 combo. It's absolutely wonderful. I can't really say anything bad about any of the equipment. I'm trying to find a downfall of the Mjolnir and the only thing I can make a possible nitpick at is that the depth of the soundstage is a tad lacking, but not the width. This may also be my undoing of the unfavorable signature of the Burson, which used some trickery. I am done searching for atleast a year until much more relevant upgrades are available. Such as 32/384 material :) I'll post again with refined feedback once I am 100% familiar with this combo. The Yulong D18 and T1 mids/bass/detail = WOW beyersmile.png much more realistic and palpable than the LCD and HifiMan can hold a candle at, not overly done at all.

Are your T1s wired to be balanced or do you use an adapter?
