Just my opinion but the warranty info is confusing. I hope you get you're T1 back soon and that Beyer treats you right.

My HE400's sound fine, but they are so heavy.  The T1 is comfortable and relatively light. The  T1 sounds better but clearly not a fair sound or cost comparison.  I can't imagine how heavy the HE500 feels let alone the LCD2 and above.

Well, if that was to be the only cause, I truly doubt anyone would still have them.

well it only broke because the metal was already weak from previous times when its been bent slightly, however, i just bend it back where it should be.

 

when the adjusters are extended quite a bit, its easy to bend them if you drop them or if the headphones bump against something.

Does someone else need to bend it back after using , his/her T1 ?

 

I simply put my T1 on my head , enjoy music , remove it , and nothing more  . confused.gif

And here is why they broke, very simple. I do not think any metal-made headphones are made to be bent.

I've heard the he500 quite a few times now, from a variety of heavy hitting amps. Not impressed at all. I prefer the mad dog alphas over this headphone, but the disappointment originates from expecting much more. The comfort wasn't as bad as I expected. The velour pads are of a high quality (and are smooth like on the akg k271) and the headband distributes weight pretty well. Clamping force is nice too, meaning for a comfortable enough fit.

Its's the weight of the HE400's that bother me and the HE500's are heavier still.  I'm just real happy with the sound and comfort of the T1.  After seeing what happened to DG T1 I'll be double careful with them. 

 

Someone needs to start a broken HP thread and see if maybe there is more of this out there.

 

I'm still shocked that a 1K HP snapped like that.

This thread is massive and the T1 is a definite staple on headfi. That's the first time I've come across something like that happening, so I won't really go about treating this headphone like a d7k which we all know are definitely fragile. Maybe a dud unit?
