The Official Beyerdynamic T1 Impressions and Discussion Thread - Page 450

post #6736 of 7979

I feel the Beyerdynamic should come out with a newer flagship headphone. The T1 is a great headphone ,but it can only compete with headphones like the HE-500 and the HD700. Very few people compare out even say the T1 is on the same level as the HD 800's or the HE-6. Right now the T1 is at the level of the semi-flagships. Many people prefer the flagship's of other headphone companies over beyer's.

Ya I will be cutting the stock cable in half to 5 feet and reterminate to 4pin XLR then use the other 5 feet for an adapter back to 1/4 using the stock Neutrik plug :beerchug:

I think the T1 is an amazing sounding headphone and is one of the best in the world

Beyer's own website says they are Nuetrik connectors.

 

PAY ATTENTION!

 

??? I was talking about the cable possibly being Cardas. I didn't even mention the brand of the connectors. Why so aggressive?

So the cable is shorter perhaps and to use a balanced source probably. I didn't shorten my cable, but I can definitely recommend reterminating to 4 pin XLR as it opens up lots of potential to adapt to various different balanced and unbalanced connections with simple fly leads.

I would disagree. I think that the T1 is on the same level as the HD800, or at least near to it as the HD800 is a tad more expensive retail. Its just different sound signatures. Both have their strengths and weeknesses. It really depends on what the end user is looking for. A more rounded HP, full and punchy, with great clarity and quality with all music types(T1). Or a headphone more focused on mids and treble execution, (with some good sub-bass) that sounds amazing, but with only certain genres of music(HD800). There are many music genres that sound like crud on my HD800, there are none that i have found yet on the T1.

IMO, the T1 is a lot better than the HD700 and HE-500. Honestly I spend more time listening to music by the T1 than the HD800.

Hum here in France HD800 is not just a tad more expensive . T1 can be found at 700-750 € new , HD800 => 1100/1200 €

 

So i will never get an HD800 :o .

Your loss.

I don't think the location of a retailer comes into it much these days its easy to request shipping quotes from overseas retailers.  It is very easy to save a good chunk of money by buying and shipping products from overseas.

 

It is just nuts that a product can be made in the EU that then cost say %40 less if you purchase it from US and that's including paying shipping and duty. I have no problem using overseas retailers. In the last couple of months packages from the US, China, Hong Kong, Russia, Japan and Lithuania have arrived. All being considerably less expensive to purchase in the UK. Its just plain nuts to be able to buy and ship a part from Hong Kong for less than just the shipping cost of purchasing the same part in the UK.
