I still listen to the T1's through a WA3, and enjoy it. But by all accounts the WA2 takes it to the next level. Enjoy! One of these days I'll be getting there...

I also listen to my T1 mainly through WA3 because it's the rig I have at work. IMO it does a nice job.

 

I'm listening to an Eric Clapton album right now (Pilgrim) and the soundstage is pretty convincing except for the vocal parts, that ruin it completely. Can a more experienced headfier explain to me why this happens?? I believe it has something to do with the center image of stereo but I'm really not that informed about that.

 Can you specify a little whats wrong with the vocal part please. Visually not in the center? Where is it placed / coming from then?

Sorry I should have explained it better. What I mean is I'm getting a very good imaging except for vocals, that sound too much "inside of my head". Instrumental parts, not, even guitar solos seem to come from outside in some way.

I think you need to experience isonepro

http://www.head-fi.org/t/473885/isone-pro-the-best-thing-you-could-ever-get-for-your-headphones-on-your-computer  If you don't already.  I keep my lcd2 there for vocals as well.

Do you experience this with all records or just some? I do feel that they aren't forgiving to the record, so, maybe that's why?

I already tried IsonePro, but the vocals still seem inside my head. Maybe it's a thing with me?

 

I bought a Phonitor also, haven't arrived yet.

 

I'm trying now my recently acquired Leckerton UHA-4, and I'm impressed with the crossfeed, it does a very good job for imaging in my opinion, or maybe it's the dac/amp itself that is so good. I'm using them on a IEM (W4) and the results are astonishing, it's been a long time since I don't play with IEM's.
 

Thanks to all!

Yo,

 

In Foobar2000 I use a combination of Redline Monitor, Bauer DSP, and Matrix Mixer to get the sound I want. I found that using these on my Auditor gives me nearly the same sonic presentation as what is on the Phonitor. Redline Monitor lets me adjust the center volume as well, so vocals aren't so in your face.

 

Here are my settings in Redline Monitor:

Center: -1.5dB

Soundstage: 75 Degree's

Distance: 1.5M

 

In Bauer I ahve it set to 15dB at 650Hz/280us. 

 

So far these settings give me a speaker like soundstage, especially on the T1.

Just bought a pair of T1's ^^ very excited!

Following up on my question a month ago, the T1's are larger than the DT770/880/990 line by maybe half an inch. They sit perfectly on my head at the last notch. The older line was short. This was my main hesitation to buying them.

My first impression is that some of the songs do not pop out as much as they did on the HD700, which is good and bad depending on how you look at it. It's definitely a lot more fun to listen to than the HD800 based on my limited experiences with those. Initial impression blows my HD650 out of the water completely.

I haven't used foobar in a long time but I would definitely try this out and compare it with my current setup.

Take good care of my T1s. smile.gif I've owned them for such a long time, they've kinda become part of the household.

^ which means you BETTER clean them good before using them first.  Prolly got tons of hair and dust on there.
