I have a new toy coming on Monday, as well. 

 

OK what is it?

I've been wanting to get a planar headphone since I first started up with this side of the hobby about two years ago...just always been something that came up that prevented me from pulling the trigger. But I'll have some Audez'e LCD-2s in here on Monday. I think they'll be a great complement to my T1s and Grados, cause most of my phones are neutral-to-bright. I don't have anything that is neutral-to-dark, so this should fit well. 

 

I talked with Jan about it a few weeks ago and he said his gear does great with the LCDs...looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about.

I have great respect for David Mahler and he says those HP's are a step above the T1's. I'll be interested in your feedback.

I'll be interested too! lol  I've heard quite a wide range of opinions on them, so I'm eager to give them a go.

I've gone a similar path with the LCD2.2, T1, TH900 all being different and complimentary. The LCD2 is very different, I hope you enjoy the unique sound they possess.

 

I had a scare with me T1 today. I took the ring out that holds the driver in to get a bit of residue out of them (dust/hair) and stupidly I had in on its sise and the driver fell out sideways (must have pried the plastic housing out with the ring). I got it back in place and was really freaked out. Turned the amp on and plugged them in to see if they were ok, pure distorted noise. Luckily I saw that the laptop was freezing up due to a update incoming. Restart, turn amp on again, plug in and no changes in sound. Thank god.

Wow. Glad they're OK.

 

Isn't that weird that something random like the laptop freezing happens to create the symptoms of the very thing we're freaking out about at the same time!?

 

Does that last sentence make sense? :confused_face(1):

Yep it made sense. I've just had the same thing happen with the laptop again now, might have to leave it off for a while. But yeah on second listen distortion sounds a lot like digital problems/glitching, not typical crackling or any of that.

First of all, glad your T1s are ok! lol

 

That's a nice group of phones you have there! I've had a couple people ask my why I'm getting rid of my T1s for the LCDs...just to clarify, I'm not getting rid of my T1s...I love them!! I just want them to have friends :)

Anyone got their T1 modded to accept aftermarket cables?  I was considering having moon audio modify mine to accept hd 800 connectors and I'd use my toxic cables silver widow cables with them.  Anyone else mods T1?  I read an article about Alo Audio modded T1 but I can't find any info on this on their site.

Was the mod worth it to you? And the guarantee is only good for 2 years although I'm not sure beyerdynamic would like to repair modded headphones even out of warranty.

I had them hard wired with Black Dragons terminated with 4 pin XLR....I have moved to balanced and the Black Dragons seem to tame the top somewhat and help the bottom.....bottom line is I am very pleased that I had it done.....they do a great job by the way

I never believed that well made wire would make a difference but I really don't understand the need for balanced on headphones?????  Runs are short and never saw any data that supported that there was an audible difference.....  oh well, ymmv...  :eek:

Not starting a cable discussion but I'm not sure how it would tame the top or help the bottom. In any event it's an impressive looking cable....  :beerchug:
