Im trying to decide what open headphone I should get. I only listen to rock and metal, so I had two headphones in mind: The Beyerdynamic Tesla T1 and the Grado Rs1i. Normally, the grado would be recommended, but the T1 has a superior soundstage and a more "hifi" sound. How do they compare in mids highs, and soundstage? Which one is better for rock and metal? Most importantly, which one immerses you more into the music and feels more alive? Please tell me if it's a big difference or not.
I'm willing to bet that most folks here have not heard both (or either) of the $700 1i and/or $1,100 T1. I have not heard the 1i for any amount of time--only the 2i.
You will probably catch more fish posting at Summit-Fi, the Grado appreciation thread and/or threads dedicated to the cans about which you are asking.
