If nothing else, MagicCabbage knows that we all feel his pain and suffer along side him! :D

 

That thread must never die.

Haha - we'll see. It might just catch on with a bit of support!

For me I would class 'a class above' as being slightly but obviously better.

Two classes better would be significantly better in all or most areas with no weaker areas.

Three classes better would be far better in some areas and significantly better in all, or nearly all, other areas.

 

As I can't find, given my tastes and the equipment the T1's and HD650's were/are used on, any area where the HD650's even get close to the T1's I think '3 classes better' is justified to me.

 

It's possible another amp may increase or decrease the distance berween the two but I can only go by what I have personally experienced.

 

So 'how many classes'... who knows?

I don't know what was wrong with my T1 but I enjoyed the HD650 more. Though the HD800 is on another level.

Just linked a soon-to-be Crack owner to the support thread.

 

And, on topic, I'm looking forward to comparing the T1s side-by-side with HD800s one day. I have heard the HD800s recently, but before I owned the T1s. I feel like the T1s will remain my preference because of their extra musicality / warmth, but I'm still excited to compare.

I plan on buying the HD800's in a month or 2, I heard them a few weeks back through my WA2. I was floored by how big and warm they sounded through my amp - I was expecting a leaner sound. I cant wait to own both T1 and HD800, I also look forward to comparing the 2 headphones.

They are fantastic phones...I have had bad luck finding a Sennheiser that I've really liked, and even though I only had about 30 mins with the 800s, it was clear to me that I could be very happy with them. At the time they struck me as being more similar than different than my T1s, which was the main reason I didn't see myself purchasing a pair. I'll be interested to see if you have the same impression or if you find them more different than I did. My impresion was nothing but positive, though....aside from the fact that they still don't look like headphones to me lol

Oh i love the way they look "over the top". They look like they cost 1000+. People who aren't in to headphones look at the T1 and think it costs maybe 1 or 2 hundred and are always shocked when i tell them how much i payed.

When I put the Senns on, I half expected to be able to read people's minds

unfortunately the hifiman don't look that great. except the HE-6, i love the piano black, i just wish it was a little blacker and shinier, like a few more coats of paint would of been nice.

 

like this

I much prefer the aesthetic of the T1. The HD800 is like "Beam me up Scotty," or "May the force be with you," lol. Not my cup of tea, but I'm sure that floats a lot of people's boats (I've been enjoying their sound though, with some caveats).

I'm with Arc. Do not like the look of the Senn - but I"ll concede (grudgingly) that they look better in person than in photos.

T1's by comparison are very understated, verging on the boring - much like myself.

I just joined the club.  I will break this in along with the hd 650 while I wait for the toxic silver widow cable and then when everything is properly broken in I will decide which one I will keep or maybe keep them both.  But I really only want to keep one and sell one off and use the money for other my other small hobbies.  It does sound great out of the box which I was surprised (a bit brighter, but still good).  Some reviews said it required a lot of burn in time.  I guess it doesn't take much to please my ears.  I was also afraid that my stack wouldn't be strong enough to power 600 ohm cans, but it did.  I have a schiit uber bifrost/valhalla.  I was worried that I would need the lyr, but the valhalla powers it enough.  I guess it could go louder, but my ears would bleed.
