Checking them out now. May take some getting used to but it's not bad at all. Thanks for the recommendation. smily_headphones1.gif

OK, a week has passed since acquisition.  Is it too early to request a micro-review?  tongue_smile.gif

 

I've had the Soloist and T1 for a couple of months now and have been looking forward to your input.

 

Thanks!

Anyone heard the Graham Slee amps with their T1? I'm really thinking I'm going to pull the trigger on an amp upgrade this summer and this is one I'm interested in so far, along with the Bursons. 

post #3741 of 7760

Hi.  Has anyone has these re-wired by Alo - or compared the ones from Alo with the standard?  If so i would love to hear thoughts on the differences.  Cheers Stu - from the land with the (currently) never ending summer.

Rewired for balanced?

The cable is already of quite a high quality. I think just give them a try first and then after a while, and if you still think you need them re-cabled, then do so at a later date. 

post #3744 of 7760
I re-cabled my T1 simply because I found the stock one too heavy, uncomfortable, and aesthetically blah - I'm shallow that way. I just did it myself.

I'm not a believer in cableism, but I think it'd be pretty hard to improve on the stock cable unless for going balanced, or for superficial reasons of style and comfort (in which case almost anything is better).

My first experience with the T1 was when it was recabled with Zeus OCC copper and I just loved them so much, I ordered my pair that way. I have not heard a stock T1, but it seems that it is very, very good in its own right.

Does anyone use the J$ leather pads with their T1's - If so how do they sound?

post #3747 of 7760

I've tried the J$ version 2 leather pads for beyers with my T1. At first I thought I liked the sound, there was a bit more bass and everything sounded "fuller". But then when I switched back to the normal pads I realized actually how muddy it was. Not recommended, in my opinion (although after reading my old post in the linked thread, apparently if you'd asked me about a year ago I'd tell you the opposite...)

 

I like the pads with the DT990 though, no bloated bass problems there, I think it might have to do with the fact that they are completely open.

That was exactly my experience with Beyer Manufaktur leather pads on DT880.

post #3749 of 7760

I tried the HE-6 pleather pads with my T1s and the sound was more or less unchanged. This made me order 2 J$ pads from wje as I can't stand the stock T1 pads due to the heat here in Australia, even with room temperature at sub 20 degrees.

post #3750 of 7760

Hmm.. I'm thinking if grabbing T1s with my La Figaro 339 tube amp.

 

My concern is I am into strong bass response with a good thump. Will T1s do the job in bass department? Should I expect more or less bass punch than my HD650s? Seems like T1 does everything else perfectly as I like it though :)
