They do not sound dry to me. Not bass light for sure. Not bright. Very defined, well controlled, simply great.

I have all  those same Moody Blues SACD remasters (& the Credence and Who ones, too) and I concur with Frank above.

I love the sound of the remasters. The sound quality is incredible!

I completely agree with you on this one. smile.gif

So waiting for my Wa2, too long.

I have not read the entire thread so my apologies on forehand if this has been asked before.

 

Im in the market for a new pair of cans and i want to take a step in the higher end.

My choices are narrowed down to the T1 and HE-500 and possible a higher end Grado. But mostly its between the T1 and the HE-500.

I've read alot, mainly the HE-500 thread and some general reviews.

The music i listen to is mostly metal(trash, death, prog, heavy) some rock(classic and heavy) and blues. I do like experimenting in other genres every now and then though.

 

My current amps are the GS-1 and a LD MKIII. There might be B22 in the future but not anytime soon.

I really like the beyer sound and i'm not familiar with the Hifiman house sound. Also it seems i like cans that are on the bright side, it provides the edge that goes good with rock and metal.

 

My ideas with the DT880, SR325is and T50RP;

I love the DT880 for its neutrality, soundstage and detail but the mids are a bit weak for rock/metal, also a tad more/tighter bass wont hurt.

The SR325is lacks the soundstage and also also some (tighter)bass.

The T50RP has the speed, timing, better bass than above, nice mids but lacks higher extensions/detail and also the soundstage due to being closed.

Between the three i mostly reach for the beyers due to soundstage, clarity, comfort and slighty better bass than the 325.

 

What do you T1/HE-500 owners think?

If you like the Beyerdynamic sound, T1 is simply the best they have to offer; the super-upgraded DT880.

 

That said, I have to say I like HE-500 a little bit more with metal/rock, and LCD-2 a little bit more then HE-500. HE-500 has more 'body' which I like more then T1 with metal music.

 

Although I won't call any of these 3 really bright, LCD-2 is definitely not going to give you brightness.

 

All 3 are excellent cans, T1 being the easiest to drive and the most comfortable.  I'll probably sell the HE-500 because I don't need LCD2 + HE-500.

T1 offers something different and can be used with my night stand rig.

Just bought a pair today and hoping it arrives tomorrow/wednesday. Heard some pretty lacklustre views on the T1/Burson combo but I guess I'll see for myself.

for sure it looks fancy but if i ever would touch to the original cable, i would try balanced than.

how much was the upgrade ? sound ? is that your headphone stand ?

is that silver cable ? must be a fortune. approx 400dollars ? extreme

i dont plan on going balanced in the near future so didnt go balanced.  the upgrade isnt cheap.  contact them or any other company directly to find out your options and pricing. :)

The T1 is most probably the safest bet but i would like to look beyond that.
I discarded the LCD-2 option for the lack of high extensions. How do you think about the PRaT of those 3 cans?

 

Too bad i wasnt at the Dutch head-fi meet to hear those babies... Would have been a great opportunity.

I'm going to post an ad in the next day or so for my T-1's  #2210 with a brand new Furutech 1/4" plug (this is the best plug period....built like a tank.  I had Moon Audio change it back from the single 4 pin XLR).  Anyone interested PM me.
