I have never been in a sauna before, but I imagine the experience is somewhat similar to my current headphones listening experience.
I strap myself into my LCD XCs for a couple of hours. I feel this to be analogous to the ritualisitc self-flagelation with birch leaves and almost suffocating atmosphere of a room filled with steam that is just this side of turning your skin into a wrinkled parody of a bull-dog's face. All this is to say that it is pleasure derived through a certain amount of discomfort.
So, where does the T1 fit into all this?
After the weight of the LCD XCs have been lifted, I put on my T1s and, suddently, the burden has been replaced with an incredible lightness of spirit and sound. It is like jumping into a lake after having cracked the ice from the surface. It just feels so good, and it takes the experience of listening with the LCD XC to achieve it.
By themselves, both headphones are excellent. Together, they make the perfect partnership.
