OH LAWD THE DETAIL!
I love it. I swear I loooooove it.
Casting my T90 vote. Save yourself money as well.
The Tesla driver is something to behold, T90 could have been made even better than what it is IMO, but then what happens to the T1? so they are just destroying most offering in the mid-high end range instead.
Unfortunately, I've never had the chance to hear any version of the DT880.
As for soundstage between T1 and T90, it wasn't something that left a deep impression on me when I switched. I'd say they are probably relatively close, at least as far as depth/width go (could have been my music too, or just something that I'm not particularly picky about). Placement and positioning is better with T1 though.
A lot of people, as I'm sure you've read, say that the T90 is 95% of the T1 or something for half the price. They're definitely similar, but 95% is a bit generous in my opinion. At half the price though, I think the T90 are great.
Hmm I'm not sure if I want to get the T90 first or jump right into a T1... well it's going to be years for me anyways so I'd better forget about the T90 for the time being >.> just got into a car accident so my Insurance is going to be eating away at any extra headphone funds I might have had
yay :D and with that comment my Wallet holds a gun to my head again >.> guys STOP making me hurt my wallet! He's starting to defend him self <.<
Yep, they really are quite amazing for the price. Listening now to my custom AK DAC, Crack/Speedball and T90's. My fully balanced chain with LCD2r2/HE-5's isn't getting any play these days. The right chain with T90's is incredibly dynamic and spacious. Very very addictive.
My second T90 chain is identical except the Crack is replaced with a Torpedo. There's another fantastic combination.
very much agreed. Might also be worth editing your previous post to reduce confusion.
Hmmm. I've had my T1s for a week or so...and then yesterday I bought the HD800 during the Amazon $889 deal (could not stop my finger from clicking the add to cart button).
I feel the same way about my T1. I simply can't imagine another headphone being as well balanced and musical as the Beyerdynamic. The Stax SR009 is the only other headphone I've heard that has wowed me more than the T1.
I'm guessing I'm going to send back those HD800s sooner or later. Any less bass than the T1s would be too little...any more and the perfect balance would be disrupted. For the past week I've been coming home after work to listen to music until I have to go to bed.
