I'm surprised that a $149 case didn't have a handle. As a result it is always a "two handed" pickup operation.

I mean, after all, for the price of a T1 I could get a really great set of suitcases. So what's a handle worth? smile.gif

Check this out if you're still keen on an aluminium case with a handle.

(and never washed them :p) , cause at first T1 bass were very enjoyable (and it's the best headphone that go through my house at this date) .

 

Curious to see how it will perform with a cheap O2 redface.gif

 

Can you compare your T1s to your AD2000x

Has anyone used this headband cushion (or other headband cushions) with their T1s? Would like to know if it fits the T1 headband.

As others have mentioned it's not a travel case: It's just plate alloy so while you could use it, it'd end up dented as heck in no time. I'd personally avoid going the hard case route anyway... why add so much bulk? I would rather get a decently padded soft case, that's not in the shape of a case like the Beyer 'leather' (it's vinyl) case and throw it in your bag. Like the Headcase for example. I forget if that fits, it should but check anyway.

So it will cost me $250 for a new driver and a new cord (they said it was going too).  The headphones were "supposedly" purchased in October of 2012.  I seriously doubt that unless both these items were damaged to begin with, but they looked new when I bought them.

 

Oh, well.  I guess that's the price you pay for good sound.

 

Looking forward to getting them back for the weekend.

May i know what exactly happened to you driver and cable? Never knew Bayer charged such exorbitant fees for repairs.

The sound was no clear out of the right driver.  It sounded like it was breaking up.  I can't speak for the cable but they told me that it wasn't in great shape.  That must have been on the inside since there was no visible damage on the outside.

That's really unfortunate, it could have been a faulty set of drivers or cables for all you know. Is this issue common among T1s? Hopefully Beyer will have the headphones fully repaired and returned to you soon.
