Thinking of upgrading my headphones. Currently i have Beyer DT880 and Nuforce HDP as my home setup. I have been looking at T1 or Sennheiser HD800. I mainly listen to rock and metal. My question is which would be the best choice for me? I really like the DT880 and heard people say that the T1 is like DT880 on steroids. On the other hand HD800 is also very tempting, but i`m worried my HDP won`t do it justice.
I recently got both. The HD800 is the better headphone.
If they were both going for the same price I would chose the HD800. If i could get the T1 for $950 and the HD800 for $1350, I would chose the T1.
I could live with either on as my only headphone. The T1 slightly edges the HD800 for metal and rock.
Get the headphone now and worry about the amp\source later.
