The entire thing took five minutes. In my experience the T1's benefit a lot from this mod if you have a fully balanced system.

That's good to know. My dealer re-terminated the T1 cable and adapter for me when I bought it but I've terminated some of my own with Cardas wire which was Litz (I made an extension cable for my T1 so now I can move up to 30 feet away from the amp if I need to. If the solder flowed for you as well as you say, then the stock cable for the T1 can't be Litz. This is a bit odd though because I know that the T1 cable is basically just a high quality stereo microphone cable repurposed for use as headphone cable and some of them are Litz as well.

So it has been over a couple of months since I sold my T1 and I hate to admit it, but I missed it.. I'm keen to find out how the T1 sounds with the HDVA600. If I like the pairing they make, then I guess I eventually would have to get one again :blink:

The more headphones I acquire, the more I keep going back to the T1.  Will never part with it.

Even though it's #2 in my rotation now, I'd definitely miss it if I was without it.

I feel your pain mate - but you're not getting them back :veryevil:.

 

If I'm going through Auckland at some stage, I'll PM you and you can grab them back for a few weeks to test if you want though.

I knew you'd love them too much to let them go :tongue: I guess I had been in a long phase of denial ever since the departure of the T1 from my stable (and perhaps I still am). But to preserve my wallet, I need to convince myself that I am not regretting selling the T1 and sadly, it's a battle I'm losing...

Believe me - I know exactly what you're talking about.  Remember I sold the HD600s (again) a couple of months ago.  Look at my sig. Repurchased again for the 3rd time.

 

The T1 and HD600 make a perfect contrasting pair though.

Never sold my T1 but I sold my HD650s two times and bought them three times.

Then I guess if I do decide to get another pair, I have to make sure that I would not sell it again..

 

The HD650 does make for a pretty nice contrasting complement to the HD800, but it doesn't help me forgetting the T1 at all. In fact, the treble roll-off of the HD650 keeps reminding me of the smooth presentation (the 8.5kHz peak doesn't bother me) of the T1.

 

 

 

This hobby is dangerous...

Hello Friends

 

I'm thinking of repurchasing the T1 and wanted to know if a solid copper cable can tame the highs? Is it worth it or am I wasting my money?

 

Kind regards,

 

B

Went with the Moon Audio Black Dragon V2 cable.  Have never looked back.  Better weight and instrument timbre across the spectrum.  I think it settled the highs to a degree but I never had problems with the treble the way some people seem to.

Thank you. This is reassuring to know. What connectors did you get with the T1 for the cable mod?

 

Has anyone else who had issues with the treble successfully tame it with a cable mod?

It was hardwired by Moon Audio (re-cabling with them does NOT void the warranty).  1/4" plug...whatever the one is they recommend.

could try the damping mod.  just a little circle of felt on the inside of the earcups, should cost a few bucks and is completely reversible.
