Just out of curiosity, does the T1 have batter bass impact than either the HD700, HD800 or LCD2?
post #5179 of 10477

Yes to hd700, yes to hd800, no to lcd2.

I've narrowed my headphones down to the T1 or LCD2. At the moment the T1s are on sale so I can get them for £770 and the LCD2 would cost £875. I listen to nearly everykind of music, but I also would be using the headphones for Gaming and movies. do the T1 have a deep and strong enough bass rumble and impact for games and movies. How huch bigger and better is the T1s soundstage compaired to the LCD2

I've not heard the LCD-2s, but the T1s are easily my favorite movie headphone - and I watch a lot of movies. With a good DAC and amp, it's a very impressive and enjoyable experience. They are the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn, too, so it's a real treat to enjoy a movie with them. 

 

The LCDs may be just as good or better for movies...I'll defer to others for that feedback.

Yeah go for the T1s especially as an all-rounder. Make sure to get a proper amp for them and they will treat you right.

Cant say how much bigger the soundstage is compared to LCD2's, because I've never heard them, but in my opinion T1's don't have a particularly big soundstage. Its sort of ok, to me its more reminiscent of a closed headphone than an open back. Imaging is great (for a headphone at least), but it never gives a strong out of head experience. So I would not let the soundstage size be the determining factor on which I'd decide which one to get, because its not exactly like the T1 is brilliant at it.

 

If you want bass rumble and impact in games, T1 is also not the one for you. In order to get the really strong sort of subwoofer-like bass that I assume you want in movies and games, you'd need to look elsewhere. T1's don't really do that, they deliver high quality bass, but not lots of it, just the right amount.

 

Lastly, you will need a soundcard, receiver or DAC capable of some sort of headphone surround if you really want an immersive gaming or movie experience, and then run that into a headphone amp. Not that it cant be immersive just in stereo, but once you play or watch with something like dolby headphone or yamahas silent cinema, you'll never go back.  In that case, every headphone can become great at imaging and soundstage, because its all done virtually, way before the signal reaches the headphones, another reason why the actual headphones soundstage size should not be a determining factor when picking one. For example, my 7 year old Sennheiser HD212pro plugged into Asus ST, with dolby headphone turned on, blow the T1's in pure stereo more away in terms of soundstage size, precision, imaging, immersion, etc. In fact, in games like Battlefield 3, they simply sound better overall.   ovI much prefer the DT770pro to T1's for movies and games, its my favorite. You don't lose much in clarity and detail, if anything, but you gain a lot in impact and excitement. It's got the perfect balance of clarity and control, with slightly elevated bass that gives that impact and boomy feeling.

 

 

Just one more thing, this will sound ridiculous, but bear with me. Consider the Logitech gaming headphones. I bought the G35 as a gimmick,  sure it doesn't sound very good with music, but damn, for games and movies, it absolutely rocks. In fact, I've never heard a pair of headphones capable of such dynamics and such strong impact without any distortion. Also, it genuinely gives an out of head experience. Might lack in absolute sound quality compared to "real" headphones, but its damn fun. Its also cheap, so might be worth a try.

Haven't heard the LCD-2 do movies, but T1 absolutely shines with most hollywood mixes.  Also, I found that whaching movies with Dolby Headphone enabled (in conference room mode) couples really well with T1.

I agree. I've posted this ad nauseum, but that's a big reason why I love the Meier crossfeed circuit. It's great with music, but I love it even more with movies. Combined with spot on imaging, the crossfeed really creates more of a layered sound field, so all the cues in the movie mix are just perfectly placed in space, and panning from right to left effects are very realistic. I get a nice big sound stage and dialogue is crystal clear, as well. Good times. 

 

I haven't heard the Dolby Headphone feature, but I know others who swear by it...I'm sure it sounds great with the T1s!

Its crazy. One of the very few things in audio that really make a night and day difference.

Check out the multi-channel version of TB Isone, very good.

Can somebody comment if Musical Fidelity M1 DAC is good match for T1? If not which DAC is better choice for T1?

I haven't tested with my Soloist yet but it seams so far that it's pretty good. The M1DAC is a great DAC for the money,
