Can that thing work all the time, like a part of operating system, so it works in games, internet, etc., or does it only work in certain programs?

I'm not sure if you can configure it to be "always on", you could email them about it though. Far as i know, it's just a plug-in but it could be possible.

You don't use the separate DAC? Sure, you are in sonic nirvana?

I am about to spring for M1 HPA in a week.

Overall, the clarity is more brilliant, lows a lot more fuller and punchier and the mids are livelier. The biggest thing that obviously improve now is I can get to the same listen level as before but at lover volume. If I set the volume knob at the same position as I used to the volume is now uncomfortably loud.

 

I am using the Hifi-M8 to drive the T1 and I thought I needed a desktop amplifier to fully enjoy the T1. I put an effort to find the right desktop amplifier for the last 2 weeks. But now I feel like I don't need one. I'm completely happy how everything has turned out. I'll put the desktop amp search on hold for now until I find compelling reason/s to really upgrade my DAC/amp setup. (Not to mention it's versatile that I can have similar experience while on the road. But any IEM still is no match for T1. I hope my incoming JH16 can close the gap)

 

I observe that playing hi res audio file and adding BitPerfect on top of iTunes adds bigger smile on my face and my wallet :L3000:

 

I am currently using Audio Technica little amp HA21 (see below) and the T1 sounds impressive enough.

Like what people say with T1: these headphones "elevate" the quality of your amplifier

Anyway this can strain under more challenging tracks

so I am upgrading to Asgard 2 or Musical Fidelity M1

Imaging/separation is the quality that T1 does better than a lot of high-end headphones I tried.

This is just me of course.

what do u think about dubstep, dnb, and trance on HE-500 (with pleathers) ? 


Unfortunately I haven't listened to the HE-500 with pleathers for about a year. I lost the pads when I moved house some months ago.

 

All I can recall was that they were my favorite for EDM before I got the Fostex.

yeah, im undecided between them, i love trance vocals on HE-500 and HE-6, so i prefer them over fostex, though i will use fostex for alot of bass heavy music and heavier tracks.

My Beyerdynamic T1 needs a pad change. The pads I should be going for are the DT990 ones right? I haven't changed the pads in 2 years, they look flat right now lol. How much improvement can changing them bring?

The midrange is killer on the Hifimans, artists like Mind.In.A.Box, Jesse James Allen etc really sing for me. I think the fostex midrange is just not quite perfectly there for those ethereal vocals. I also like dance pop music and asian pop more on the hifiman for this reason.

 

I need to get some pleathers again, I'm just a lazy S.O.B to get them :redface:. Is it me or is the velours really dry sounding?

yes

 

and pads are dt 990 velour black. they seem to last a while, if they get flat change them, it does reduce sound quality a bit, if the bottom becomes to flat it changes the angle of the cups against your ear which would affect coherency and treble as well. by how much , i don't know. depends on headphone.

When I were doing my research on desktop amplifiers for T1, I had gone through lots of kind both SS and tubes. Based on my preferences, I narrowed my interest to these 3 amps/dac combo.

 

Woo Audio WA7 Fireflies (tube)

Schiit Gungnir/Mjolnir (balanced setup) or Asgard2/bifrost (single ended)

Dangerous Music Source

 

If I go for a tube I'll get WA7, for SS amps the Schiit option isn't flexible in my opinion, I'm gonna have to choose between balanced or single-ended setup but not both. I was leaning towards the Dangerous Source because it's unique. (It's actually a monitoring gear) It has two sets of amp/dac with an array of input options and multiple output. This can be handy if you like comparing sources or headphones.

I can't stress enough how good an OTL amp like the WA2, CSP3+ or Bottlehead Crack is for the T1. The Gungnir DAC is good, but there's better for the money. Atleast put an OTL amp on your list to check out :)
