The only thing left is the audeze but i've heard mixed things about them. I didn't spend enough time with them to really know. (plus they don't fit on my head/feel awkward)

The HE-500s really aren't too bright. They are quite neutral, and with some pad modifications it gets even better.

So true. And this is also the reason why we keep spending the money.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure there's quite a bit of variation on the T1's sound signature. The one's I used to own were very smooth...no sizzle or sibilance whatsoever.

Beyer doesn't exactly have the highest QC when it comes to driver matching.

Question: How is there so much variance in driver frequency response that driver matching is a necessity?

Agreed from what I've seen. But that said, I've owned the DT770/600, DT880/600, DT1350 and T1s and all were pretty darn good!

WOWZA.

 

So...what's :thumb: for dinner? That's flat out gorgeous! I'd certainly want dinner under that lighting.

Mumford & Sons are on tap.

Don't get me wrong, I like Beyers to an extent (770s are rockin', as are some OTLed 880s) but on a headphone as expensive as the T1 it's unacceptable.

Let me try to dig up a graph...It's been pretty serious on a few T1s I've seen over the years.

 

(Maxvla might come to the rescue before I can find one)

 

EDIT: Not exactly what I wanted, but purrin talks about it a bit here.

Sure the D7000 is okay, as is the HE500, but they're not up to par like the other 2. Audeze doesn't do it for me anymore and the HE6 never has. 

 

You really do like less and less as time goes on here.

I'm kind of falling out of love with my HE500s too. They have great sound, but I miss the impact and sound pressure you get from a Dynamic driver. I've been auditioning some Signature DJ's since yesterday and so far, they are my new "holy grail". Having said that, I'm very aware we are still in the Honeymoom Phase and it may take a couple more days before I start to pick them apart. We'll see... So far I love 'em. I hope it lasts... tongue.gif

Finally heard the Signature DJs at the Austin meet and while I liked them the treble seemed a bit off. I'd like more time with them though.

That was actually the one part i was pleasantly surprised about. Then again, I'm coming from the Pro 900s which I didn't care for the Treble at all. The Sig DJ's don't sound too bright on my rig so far, but they are still new to me. I also don't notice the "S-logic" like I did on the 900s. If it's there, it's very subtle.  My Amp is a Grace M903 and those have a fairly dark signature so it could just be they are a better match than what you heard at the meet.

Only heard 'em on the LF, but I pretty much know what to expect with the LF. Love the Signature Pros.

 

Then again, the rig was streaming Spotify so who knows. That's why I didn't really judge. :D

Wow that looks awesome.  

And yes this thread has too much talky and not enough eye candy.
