Maybe but it's strange it's only on the right side :confused_face:

But it is strange when the t5ps I previously owned had no gaps on either side. Maybe the versions we received are older stock.   

 

Just checked my DT770 pros and while the construction is slightly different and the gaps are not so big one side still has that same small amount of movement and the other side does not.

Putting all the cosmetic issues aside, the t1's sounds truly wonderfull. The mids are buttery smoothly and the bass is just so extended and this was just my first 2 min impression. The sound stage is simply incredible. It's hard to believe the t1's can sound so much better than the t5's. This is the first time I've been wowed by a pair of headphones.

Tested it with another device (smartphone/tablet) and a 1/8" adapter and same result. However if I do a left right channel test the right channel appears to play in the left channel but is very very quiet or is quiet. I can't exactly tell whether it is in the left channel or in the right channel but it is very quiet when the right channel test happens. I can hear the audio but it is very faint/quiet. Is this a driver or a cable issue. I bought these from a Headfier last year and they were working fine.

I have also contacted Sound Surgeon but haven't heard back from them yet. However from what I have read is that if a driver is replaced it would be $300 per driver and Beyerdynamic usually replaces drivers in pairs to make sure they are matched. This would be an expensive repair.

Can any fellow Head-Fi'ers provide any input or suggestions as to what I should do next?

Edit: These are serial 10XXX so they are the newer revision with the second headband revision.

 

Bumping this post. I have heard that if I wiggle the cable I may be able to determine whether it is a cable issue or a driver issue but it appears to be likely a driver issue. Wiggling or putting in the cable half-way doesn't really product output on the right hand side.

My t1 also had a slight looseness of the cup from the yoke. all i needed to do was remove the cup from the yoke, squeeze the ends of the yoke together gently, and reinstall the cup.  Looseness gone.

Was the looseness on both sides?

So was it loose enough that you were able to remove the cups from the yoke with removing the black plastic held on by tiny screws?

My mistake. Yeah, my box says 5 years as well. lol
It's been a while since I've looked at it. And since I got mine 2nd hand, no warranty to worry about. wink.gif

The receipt shows the seller did buy it new and fortunately was purchased on the 27th of April 2013 so within two years! 
Ah, I see. Maybe they wrote up the policy to cover their butts legally but they're more lenient when it comes to covering actual warranty. I'll keep that in mind if anything goes wrong with my set. smily_headphones1.gif

Just one side was loose, not enough to where the cup would come free from the yoke.  I had to remove the screws holding the mounting clips on.

What tool did you use to remove the screws? Looks like a double-square drive is needed

Listening to music at low volume doesn't like out much sound at all. 

Moderate to loud volume is a different story though.

I noticed that too. I found it odd that the T90s, listed as fully open, leaks out less than the T1s, a semi-open set.
