The Official Beyerdynamic T1 Impressions and Discussion Thread - Page 51

post #751 of 10478

Guys, simply asking, how are these cans for movie listening?

 

I've currently got the Ultrasone Pro 900's. Whilst the bass impact is fantastic and "there", I just feel its too "enclosed" for my tastes, as I thoroughly enjoy my premium loudspeakers for my normal HT needs, thus I'm spoiled.

 

I have the money for the T1. And enough for perhaps the Matrix M Stage or similar within the price range. Unfortunately I cannot demo these as non in Australia that I know of.

I use them for movies, but I generally find that the much lighter 880s with a single light weight cable that I can move off to the side and forget about, are preferable. 

 

On the other hand, the T-1s do have that spacial thing (from the angled drivers) that I've come to enjoy.

It's not just the angled drivers. I've heard several flat-angled drivers that sound better than angled ones for soundstaging and imaging.

The T1's are amazing for gaming and movies if you don't need artificial rumbling bass. My #1 can overall for both. This is what eventually made the T1 win over the HE500 for me.

 

If you want open can soundstage and crazy bass, just grab a DT990 alongside it. That way you'll have yourself a wondefully natural can and some classic (airy) fun on the side.

 

Also, angled drivers are awesome.

Sounds good. Do they provide solid impact on action-based movies? Its unfair to compare to the Pro 900, but I'll give up a little bit of bass for soundstage, stronger midrange and "airyness". I can imagine they are. I was leaning to the the HD800's, but with all the reviews I read, the T1 appears to be less bass-shy, which sounds right up my alley. The airness and soundstage sound really great too.

 

Also, I'll be in NYC on September, and the only place I can think of is B&H, where I normally get photog gear from. Any other audio place where I can walk in have an audition? Thanks.

Good decision. If you want prodigious bass, you'll be sorely disappointed by the 800s. Quality yes, quantity no.

I have not used the t1 for movies but its an outstanding piece of gear. I would go to pro Audio star in Brooklyn if you going to NY in September not sure BH stock these.

I had the HD800 and T1 side by side for a very long time, and the T1 has a TINY bit more bass quantity. Like 1-2%, but it's something. Neither is bass heavy, rather bass neutral or slightly above. As for giving up monstrous bass for better everything else, it's absolutely worth it in the end. It was a very hard adjustment for me coming from Denons, but I'm very glad I made it. Can't go back to the same artificial boomy bass and recessed mids ever again. And again if you still find yourself needing some bass fun, you can grab a DT990 too.

Your lucky to have listened to both for a long time. Which would say is a better build quality?

 

Does the T1 have an additional travel bag? That alu case looks nice, but certainly not for travel.

The T1 has better build quality.

 

It only comes with the aluminum case.

No you haven't.

Well, you could always strap on a thick copper cable and pump the bass right up to prodigious levels......

 

You could also EQ.

My new T-1 has a lot more bass quantity (and quality) than my 880s.

 

What you're describing sounds more like the defective T-1s Beyer replaced.

I think you misread, I said the HD800, not DT880. My T1 always had way more bass than my DT880.

Dear T1-folks,

 

i'm seaching for an T1 amp.

i heard about Woo WA2 & Decware CSP-2    bffbb dv 

..and should be a heaven match but I'm looking for solid state amp

 

why SS ?

-i hate to boil my living room at summertime

-and because I'm a green guy and don't want to pay for a D+ category electrical device in my household the extra bill. (saving $$$$$ for sr-009)

-i refuse to buy every year tubes

 

i heard that Matrix M-Stage
 is relatively nice for the prize but it should be in a higher-league than that (in regard to the T1 quality)

 

between 300-1000$

 

(i don't have money now, but i have to inform my briefcase about the possible risk factors in the far future)

 

Thanks
