Couple of questions about the T1's and HD800's - Page 2

post #16 of 19

OP, sorry to hear that you find a Beyer uncomfortable--they certainly are a safe choice for many where comfort is concerned, myself included. That said, I'd like to second the suggestion to try the HD800; if the T1 doesn't fit you, it doesn't fit you. I've gotten rid of cans that sounded good to me but were too loose (AD300) or too tight (Shure 440), and I don't believe you ought to force yourself to fit the product. The product ought to be a fit for you.

 

Out of curiosity, why did you decide to go from a 555 to a T1 instead of an 800?

HD800's aren't readily available in Australia and are a special order in item only. And the store I use has a 20 day return policy on all headphones, no questions asked, except for the HD800. So I thought I may as well try out the T1, return it if I don't like and get the 800, instead of buying the 800 straight up and being stuck with it.

Off topic sort of, but reminds me of AD700s. My god if you hate pads resting against your ear, you'd hate the AD700 padding. Just like me :) in fact gave me a headache within a few minutes without music, a minute with music.

I also get really irritated by rubbing of earpads. The wonderful thing about the HD800's is that they basically enclose your ear vs. sit on them.

 

I have a rather embarrassing story, but when I first got HD800s I put them on backwards. That lasted actually quite a while, and i found them not very comfortable!

 

Having owned both, if you are mainly listening to the HD800s in a stationary place and won't travel much, I would totally go for those. They're comfy, superior, and just a great pleasure to listen to.
