.

the T1, HD 800, and LCD-3 are better in almost every way. they seem to be improving with burn in, but they have too many flaws. any genres i would of used PS1000 for (older rock, rock, metal, alternative, jazz, vocals, and contemporary), the T1 just completely ****s on them and blows them out of the water. the LCD-3 even more...

im starting to really believe that the PS1000 are simply SR325is with bigger bass, bigger bowls, and a bigger price tag....

Good to know, thanks for the feedback smily_headphones1.gif

Pretty much all genres, most of all vocal, instrumental, croatian ballads and old yugoslavian rock, jazz, folklore, etc.

I felt the same away about the PS1000 when I heard it at a mates house, I felt that I had headphones that already outclassed it for my preferred genres (Blues, Classical, Jazz, Rock, Metal, Hip Hop, Kpop and Electronic stuff). I would never pay that much for it at all, would much rather pick up a HD800 for the price or maybe an Fostex TH900.

 

Personally I'm finding the T1 becoming my main can to listen to, taking over from the LCD2 more and more. HD600 never gets any listening time. HE-500 and Mad Dog for certain albums/genre or songs.

 

I was listening to Bridge of Sighs by Robin Trower, and I kept hearing all these people cheering in the background while he played an outrageous guitar solo. I've heard it before on other headphones but never before have I understood some of the things they sing out. Worth checking out the album because it is an exceptionally good bluesy psychedelic rock album, in a similar vein as Jimi Hendrix. Nice recoding quality, much better sounding in pure production terms than Jimi was.

 

Was just listening to OST 1 from Cowboy Bebop as well, never has the music seemed so right, needed a lot more air than the Planars could give I guess.

You can find some real quality downloads from here:  www.itrax.com  He don't have a lot, but those he does have are really good recordings.

Thanks but as I said, I have loads of high quality recordings already, pretty much anything you can find recommended on audiophile forums. But some of the best sounding and most natural recordings I have are not very known at all.  I'm not so much into the resolution of a recording, I value imaging and naturalness much more. A lot of "audiophile" recordings jack up the details and bass and end up sounding artificial.  And vocals...a lot of vocal recordings just sound off, too bright and lacking body, or if they have body, then they're boomy.  Also, I feel like certain western singers get totally screwed by their producers who have no clue what they're doing in the recording studio.  Take Sting for example, I've heard him live twice,  and his CD's sound like ****.  Especially the Live in Berlin concert CD, vocal captured in a horrible horrible way, full of sibilance, not listenable at all.

Have you heard an AD2000? One of the funnest headphones on the planet. It did everything the RS1/RS1i did, only better. Increased depth, speed, added air to pick up on recording reverberations that the shallow Grados could not present and like the Grados, that mysterious quality of when the recording works...it's just one hell of a nice sound.

Looking at your headphones, I wonder if you considered a Zana Deux? There is a notable synergy with most of your headphones, particularly the Fostex, HD800 and PS1000. And if you decided to spring for an AD2000, that is one of the more synergistic combos I've heard, neck and neck with the famed HD650 > Zana. The Zana was my first major headfi acquisition and now some few years later I cannot confidently say I've heard anything better (except its more mature cousin, the BA). It really remains a statement piece in spite of the evolving audio world around it.

nope haven't had a chance to hear AD2000.

 

yeah i'm planning a zana deux purchase in the next year or so for TH-900 and HD 800.

T1 owners who are fans of rock, I can highly recommend the "new" Jimmy Hendrix album, "People, Hell and Angels", as a great listening experience on the T1s.

Just got my T1's today. They sound OKAY on my Emotiva A100x. I am sending my Soloist in for repair (got broken when shipping to a buyer) . Anyone have an impressions of Soloist and T1?

I had that combination for quite a while and thought it was terrific.....the Soloist has enough power to do the T1's justice
