Do you remember the approximate S/Ns of any of them?

I have enjoyed T1 until sr-407 and HE-6 coming in my stable.  Each one has their own strength and needs different supporting gears (certainly for Stax biggrin.gif).  T1 is especially nice for smaller-scale music and with high recording quality.  One impressive strength of T1 is its upper bass. It is especially solid, elastic, and impactful.  While SR-407 has most abundant amount of bass and deepest bass, the "snappiness" of T1's upper bass is very unique.  I have read posts here about that quality and did not really appreciate it until now.  For some new age instrumental music, the bass line was especially apparent and clear with T1.

My T1s have always sounded like a DT 880 on steroids. I think I have the "bass medium" version. L3000.gif

The two "normal" sounding pairs were 12xx and 46xx.  I'm not positive I remember what the "defective" pair was, but I think it was roughly a 19xx.

 

I think this is more evidence against Beyer intentionally making 2 different versions of the T1 -- there really doesn't seem to be any sensible correlation between the serial number and sound signature.  If they had intentionally made a switch in sound signature, you'd expect there would be a definite serial number where they made the transition.

if so, do we have the right to return it to the authorized dealer in exchange for another? i wouldnt want the "defective" t1 as people put it.

Same here. Hope the new one I'll order up soon will be more like the "warm" one. Not to say the current one isn't already absolutely amazing.

Yeah, that's a good description for what my two "normal" ones sounded like.

i wish they would make one warmer and one colder, like dt880/990

I wish they were equal from each other including very good neutral sound + comfy headband.

but looks like beyer made a few mistakes. that's a shame for the price.

but nothing is perfect. (only the price for beyerdynamic seem extraordinary rewarding for them :-)

i have yet to get my T1 in and i already changed amps (well in the process of).  after reading and reading, i decided to sell everything but my source and t1 and get the zana deux.  this site is able to completely disregard my willpower not to buy things.

Off chance anyone here has tried the T1's for gaming?
