No problem, are your kids old enough to drink?

;)

Legal age is 18 over here, used to be 16 a few years back - the good old days.

But that said, the T1's balanced...might explain Darryl's experiences (as I think his are indeed balanced):

Yup - sure are.  As I recommend to anyone to get them balanced and use them on a truly balanced amp from input to output with a balanced source.  Great results..

Even though my graph was of the T5p, the balanced HD800 graph does smooth out the treble:

had to sell a can, for financial reasons mostly, the t1 sold first, ideally would have been to keep all of em, lcd2, hd800 and t1, maybe upgrading to lcd3 as well, but $$$... who knows, one day perhaps...

 

last winter listened to the hd800 on my rig, ab-ing with the t1, was impressed by the hd800 naturalness and effortless, but the t1 made a better candidate as a allrounder, and had a more dynamic soundstage, more spherical and intimate when needed ,the added energy and wow/fun effect that kept me more entertained across my music tastes, so chose the t1.

 

after a while the lcd2 came in and changed my equation, alone neither the hd800 or lcd2 do as many "things" as the t1, but what they do, they do it better for me, and together as a combo almost totally replaced the t1, sometimes one just needs a dose of t1 i guess

 

hd800 is the schiit for this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solitudes

 

lcd2 makes me smell and taste the atmosphere in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buena_Vista_Social_Club

 

t1 makes sure i have always fun

post #5421 of 8073

i listen more to T1 than i do LCD-3 or LCD-2 when i had it.

 

but i think that the LCd-3 especially, is the overall better headphone, but i prefer the T1's fun presentation and the way it does bass and mids.

 

maybe the GSX MK2 will change that.

I had just recently sold my T1 :o  I had it for a very long time with a balanced black dragon cable and it served me well, but the HD-800 had de-throned it for me. The HE-500 and possibly TH-900 are next on the chopping block, along with my Mjolnir and D18. I can die happy with the Yulong DA8+Lightspeed attenuator feeding the HD-800 + BH Crack with Speedball and the HE-6 + First Watt F5. No more ventures with dynamics and planars, next stop will be 'stat land. Not for some time though lol, need to hone my DIY skills before i think about making an amp with those voltages!

There is no new T1. These are not T1 2013 graphs, you can go to headroom and check, which nobody did apparently lol.
I made that in MS Paint in about 3 minutes because I wanted to see how people will react, and already I see the people change their minds about how their headphones sound or feel the need to buy a new pair of headphones or pair theirs with a different amp. It took 3 minutes for me to do that, now imagine what the marketing teams of manufacturers do to you with hundreds of thousands of dollars in budget.

hahaha :D

 

I am on my third T1 and all sounded about the same more or less from memory wich is unreliable  but all compared to K702 .

5910

11349

13848

 

would say that 5910 on Auditor was maybe a bit more bassy than the two others that only been used with O²

 

And a Beyer without Treble peak ???  (well there is the Custom pro but unless this one :o )

I picked up a used one, intending to sell if I didn't like it after a few weeks. I think it's going to stay.

That was actually my next choice if the NAD didn't work out.

 

I'm pretty happy with it. There is a new level of detail present, glasses clinking in the audience for live recordings .. on stage banter that I never noticed. Every time I sit down for a critical listen, I find myself listening to the entire album and blowing off the analysis. 

post #5425 of 8073

when i got the lcd2, in the beginning, t1 had most of the listening time, mostly because i was accustomed to them, later as i got to know better the lcd2, which are really superb on my rig, they were getting more head time, but always found some music where they fell short of being fast enough or having enough treble energy, but were the one with the warmer yet airier feeling, the ortho sound open air format...

 

i read about statements how open and closed cans have their distinct "feeling" while semi open didn't really manage to marge the best of both worlds, the t1 actually did it for me, they have this added transparency or capability to get the right mood of the record, not making it sound overly airy or overly closed

My experience has been the opposite.

 

I got the LCD2r2 first and loved it, constantly rocked out, listened to rock, metal, jazz and blues. It got most of my headtime dethroning the HE-500 in all but extreme metal and treble centric post rock. The T1 came later, and it has taken perhaps 50% headtime with the TH600 and LCD2 sharing about 40% (not including portable L1 here). Never have I before listened to so much soundtrack, ambient, chillout and classical before. Gets all headtime for gaming and movies. I still like the LCD, but I prefer the T1 right now.

 

Interested in seeing if the HD800 would surpass them. Should be able to buy a second hand one around December and sell again if I don't enjoy it. Audition is not long enough to get accustomed to the sound for me.

yea for something like Halford, lcd2 get slow and mellow, although they give great soundstage, detail, and tone/texture, t1 on the other hand is almost perfect

the hd800 are more calm, if you can audition them for 1-2h of listening, a-b with your other cans, it really helps, hd800 vs t1 some kind of Dr. Jekyll vs Mr. Hyde

can you share some t1 vs th600 impression, if i'm not mistaken both have "tesla" drivers, what music appeal to each?

I'll be going to sleep in a minute but here is some brief info.

 

T1

- Big Soundstage

- More Neutral/natural sounding

- Very Detailed

- Better Imaging than TH600/or equal depending on tracks

- Enjoy it for classical, soundtrack, ambient, ambient electronic, acoustic, some jazz, well recorded rock and well recorded metal

- treble spike at 9-10khz can sound strident with some poor recordings

- can be unforgiving

- a bit slow at times for the fastest most complex passages.

 

TH600 - would suit a basshead with a need for quality bass with impact/electronic music fan

- More v curved, a bit elevated bass and treble compared to mids

- can occasionally sound hot on some recordings

- much more sub bass and bass impact in general

- soundstage is good for a closed phone but not massive

- imaging is good, great for a closed headphone

- good with electronic genres (DnB, Dubstep, Trance, House, Trip Hop), I like it with hip hop as well

- high level of detail compared to other closed I've heard

- not as unforgiving

- I have not listened to a real lot of metal here, but it has handled it as well for the most part as the T1 in complexities
