If i m not wrong, schiit says using an adaptor for a non balanced cable can trigger the amp's internal protection?

 

Correct - that won't work.  So yes the only way to use the Mjolnir is to recable.  You can also look at it this way.  For around the 1K mark - you can get the MJ and do the re cable here:  http://btgaudio.wordpress.com/    with removable cables if you want.

 

the T1 is already cabled for balanced operations, you need ONLY to reterminate it, unsolder the 6.3mm (1/4 inch) and solder on a xlr plug, you DO NOT need to recable the T1 for balanced operations, and you can than easily use a xlr to se adapter

 

however if you want another cable, recable it, that's another story

^ What this guy said. Just pull the 1/4" Jack and resolder on a 4 pin xlr. Done!

For 1K and under.  How about the Mjonlir?  

 

My balanced CK2III sounds really good with the T1s as well.  It gives them the juice they need to perform. and it's well under the 1K mark.

At the $1K mark, I highly recommend the Woo Audio WA2 with the T1s. Simply fantastic pairing. Just another option.

Violectric V200 is another nice amp for the T1 and should be around that price.

Any impression of T1 pairing with Burson Soloist? Thanks for everyone giving suggestions. I prefer to take the single ended route as the convenience and not needing to recable my other phones.

Wow... I've just started using Asio drivers and the difference is pretty big...
I honestly wasn't expecting the T1 to pick up more depth and separation.
Although the wasapi and asio drivers are both bit perfect, the asio sounds more noticeable.
What have I been missing out for the past month using DS -.-

+1 for WA2.
Had it for about a month now and am pleased with it.

My budget was 1k too awhile back and had to decide between the wa2, wa6-se, wa7, csp2, Soloist and v200. There was an WA2 on sale and alot of positive feedback from Macedonianhero's older posts/reviews and a few others. I personally wanted the wa6-se/Soloist and favored the sleak look of the wa7. Yes the Soloist should be a good amp for the T1 from what I've read.

+1 if you don't want tubes this is a good combo

I have just started a thread in the High End section of the forum for all those who love Beyerdynamics Tesla Technology, I thought it would be great to embrace in one place all the Tesla models as i feel the technology is High end no matter which models we own! So hope on over and join in, lets show those high end Johhnies us Tesla fans have a rightful place in their high end club biggrin.gif

Wow I've never even heard of this recable service.  On the service it looks like just a blog, and it was hard to determine where he was located without more snooping around in the main website.  Thx for the link.

Does T5p sound similar to T1 ?

I have both, and to me they sound similar (although I don't have them next to each other to listen closely to them)

 

I have demo'd about 12 pairs of headphones in the last 2 month trying to decide what I liked best.  I ended up with a T1 for work, and a T5p for home (I needed some isolation at home)

 

Both the t1 and T5p beat out any other headphone I compared them against...

 

I am waiting for a better amp to arrive (Woo Audio WA7) so I can really do some critical listening/comparisons between them. As of now, I am using a Aune T1.

 

In my opinion, you can't go wrong with either headphone.

What was the other headphones that bit the dust?
