For others the reverse is true. They hate the T1 on first listen and go on to fall in love with the HD800.
We should just accept that we all hear differently and we are all looking for different things in our music and it's great that we have such a diversity of headphones to choose from to find just what we are looking for.
I've had my T1's for over 3 years now. I have recently heard the HD800, EL-8, LCD-2, LCD-X, HE-6 and none of them have me thinking about retiring my T1's.
Edit: you can add MDR-Z7, TH-600 and Nighthawk to that list - all too bass heavy for my tastes.
