However I'd love to hear from someone about if Music, at the mastering stage, has hiss in it. It's almost as if I'm hearing the mic hiss on some tracks fade in as say the vocals are about to start.
I've never heard this with other headphones but maybe the T1's are good enough to pick this up.

Is this just something within music that I need to get used to or shouldn't I be hearing any hiss at all?
It would help if you included an example, like specific track and timestamping when you hear the hiss instead of just saying "Music" every time.

Beck, Sea Change, Paper Tiger. About 5-6secs in I hear hiss 'behind' the music.

Talk Talk, Laughing Stock, Myrrhman. Right from the start there's hiss in the recording.

 

Do you hear this?

Well, do you hear the hissing when there's no music playing and amp volume is turned up high? Try using just the amp, with no source connected to it, and turn the volume up to see if you hear any hissing.  If yes, your amp is hissing. If not, plug in your source, don't play any music, but turn the volume up, any hiss now? If yes, your source is hissing. If there's no hiss still, then the songs you're using are hissing.

The T1 sounds just awesome with the "exotic" ear909 which my friend owns.

 

However, in comparison to the other flagship models, the T1 has the least potential to be "unearthed" by more high-end sources and amplifiers.

I don't really hear a hiss on Paper Tiger. Maybe slightly at best.
I hear something in Myrrhman that sounds like a brush going back and forth. Then 20s in, there's a slight hiss.
