I don't recall ever saying that the T1 are less comfortable than the HD-800, but if I did, I retract it. The T1 are slightly more comfortable that the HD-800 in my opinion.
The new T-1 headband is bringing the T-1s into the 880 comfort zone. Aside from initially noticing the additional weight, the new headband causes no discomfort with prolonged use, so I have transitioned over to using them for movies.
Damn this cursed site, I would have been better off not knowing about all the fantastic audio gear out there. So when thinking about it, I just could not stand the thought of not getting the full potential out of the T1's. So I actually ordered a WooAudio WA22 amp, there goes this years tax refund money :P
I do not recommend re-terminating expensive headphones?
