The Official Beyerdynamic T1 Impressions and Discussion Thread - Page 484

post #7246 of 7979

I commented a few pages back that I was going to modify my stock T1 cable by adding a balanced 4 pin xlr. I finished that two days ago and it was really easy to do. I just wanted to report that in fully balanced mode the T1's do scale up nicely. The soundstage improves with more specific instrument location and detail. The most surprising change is that the tonal quality becomes richer (not thick) with a more musical tonal balance and improved low end. I listen mostly to classical music and with chamber music the balanced T1's are hypnotic. I had listened to them in their stock mode for more than a year so it took me a few hours to get used to the changes. Frankly, I wasn't expecting this much improvement from what I have read. Just thought I would pass this on for anyone considering the move.

I had my T1s headband repaired and they were gone for about a month. During that time I enjoyed my HD700 and oh man, do the T1 sound really, really alien right now.:confused_face:

 

Like and old friend that you don't really recognize. Not sure if I like them that much anymore. We'll see.

Not good! I hope the old familiarity returns soon!

I also enjoyed of my HD700 but I've always preferred the T1 over HD700.

I hope to purchase a used T1 this week when I get paid if it's still available. I'd like to do an extensive comparison between the HD 700 and the T1 and probably sell whichever one I prefer less. Maybe I'll do a head-to-head writeup since there isn't exactly a ton of info on how the two compare. Personally, I very much enjoy the HD 700 after 75+ hours of use and find it hard to imagine getting rid of at this stage. They are also really damn comfortable.

Thanks! Just ordered Mullards for the T1!

I've been looking for another headphone for a couple of months now and since the T1 is on sale I would like to know how the earpads fit. I have the HD800 and consider my ears just float between the pads and the dynamic drivers I have no desire to go back to any other headphone that isn't this comfortable. 

 

Does the T1 have a similar fit? This is my first non leather padded headphone and I will not go back to leather either.

I have pretty big ears, and they never touch the rim nor the driver. Very comfortable. Even beat the Denon AH-D600s.

Thank you, the T1 is on a ale so will probably pick it up.

Late reply but I also have big-ish ears and I have had headphones where my ears brush against the foam that covers the drivers and it's been super irritating.  I haven't had that issue with the T1.  The T1 has been nice and comfy.

Big ears here also, I think the T1's are more comfy than my HD650's if that's of any help.

Agree with other people with slightly large ears who love the comfort of the T1s.  just ordered some new pads for mine cause they were getting old, but no issues with the fit at all :D

+1   the HD800s are more comfy for big ears though.

What about Noddy?

Why the T1 sound  horrible with 192kbps music? Or with youtube?
