Humm, I see what has happened. 

 

Are you the original owner?  If so, are you still within the warranty period? 

 

If not, it looks like you could carefully tuck the pleather back into the plastic support with something that has rounded edges like the screwdriver on a swiss army knife or a small butter knife.

I'll try that.

If it doesn't t work, I might need to split apart the plastic support.

A quick review shows that the T-1s in question were purchased used, via bank deposit, from a dodgy seller who lied about the warranty, shipped them in a plastic bag and arrived with a detached right ear cup and a list of problems...

 

 

 

 

yep, that about sums it up though I've not had any other issues besides the detached right ear cup upon arrival and now the headband cushion issue. 

Initially there was a bit of play in the right yoke hence the reason for the right cup to fall out during shipping but now that I've squeezed the the yoke together, everything is nice and tight.

The only minor issue I'm facing atm is the headband cushion. 

This is a testament to the durability of the t1's.

Or how buggered up the ones you bought were..... :basshead:

 

Regarding the plastic support:  my guess is that it's some kind of press fit, possibly with small internal plastic hooks that engage the pleather.  If you can't tuck the pleather back in, you might be able to tease the plastic off by getting between the pleather and the plastic and walking it off.  The guitar pic was a pretty good idea.

I'm pretty much in the opposite position. I have the T1 and the Asgard 2 is coming...

Just to be sure "Schiit Stack"= Modi+Magni?

post #8981 of 8984

I think the better phrase would be "pile of Schitt"

Usually, but people will use it to refer to any matched Schiit Dac+Amp (Modi + Vali or Magni, Bifrost + Valhalla or Lyr, Gugnir + Mjolnir, Yggy + Rag)

Nice to see this thread alive and well...

Having put on my T1 today for the first time after a longer pause I was actually surprised by its bass response (listening to some nice Deep House tracks), did not expect that directly after using a DT770 80Ohm. Somehow the T1 is a headphone I keep coming back to for quite some time now... Had I to select just one to stay, I think this might well be it. Gladly I don't have to make that decision though ;-)

 

Regarding the discussion about measurements a few pages back... I never studied the diagrams but had not the impression so far that the T1 measured so badly. Be that as it may, I like it. Another case of bad measurements (I did look at the charts in that case) is the K812... where I do hear some things in the treble that bother me sometimes (i.e. with some recordings or after longer listening), but its a very musical headphone to me that I find engaging and likable. I don't quite understand why a headphone at this technical level does exhibit technical flaws in measurements, but in the end what counts for me is if I can enjoy music. Or not. And the latter case is not resolved by even excellent measurements...
