I just cannot picture anyone buying the T1 for just a good detailed sound.
It should be freaking amazing at that price.
Something like the T90 was amazing on vocals clarity that made me jump paying so much I would NEVER buy at this price range without listening first.
My 2 cents..

 

but you're wrong, T1's are freaking amazing.

Hey Dubstep... I think the T1's are indeed amazing, BUT I don't the difference in price is worth it. I know that of course the law of diminishing returns kicks in, but I reckon the T1's are fractionally better, for the extra cash the void would have to be bigger to justify the extra dollars.. thats my two cents;) T90 I think is THE bargain in the Beyerdynamic range

i  guess thats true.

 

the last 5-10% does matter for me, even if it costs double the price.

For sure Dubstep!!! completely see where your coming from. Horses for courses.. you see the value in paying the extra, and all the power to you:)

im still curious to see where the T90 lies in between DT 990 -600 and T1. it has to be good. maybe it sounds different enough to be worth buying (and using with WA2  tongue_smile.gif)

(DT-990 sound signature differ a bit more than the other 3 IMO)

Methinks the price hierarchy reflects the phones performance accurately..:)

I was initially impressed by the T1s but over time have listened to them less and less. I am aware that I'm running them off a poorly matched amp and a DAC that probably does them a disservice. That's why I'm selling my other gear and buying either a WA7 or a WA2 with the proceeds smily_headphones1.gif

Buy WA2 your current DAC's are good enough to make shine a WA2+T1 combo (and upgrade later the DAC part if you realy feel the need) .

Compared to the Ultrasone Pro2900 which sells for pretty much the same price here in the US they are slightly more resolving.(note that I was unable to compare them with the same DAC). The Ultrasones have the better soundstage/imagine but the Beyers are never sibilant(a constant concern with the 2900) and have a more natural tone. Vocals are on a whole new level. And the Beyers are much less picky about what is driving them. The Ultrasones sounded like garbage through my Sansa Fuze(there were no mids, vocals were almost completely muted in some songs!) while the Beyer just sounds less dynamic through a portable player. It isn't the best solution but there aren't any glaring flaws that would ruin the experience.


No, I only buy new. I already own DT990pro anyway and am now interested in Sony MDRMA900 after stumbling upon them on amazon by accident and looking up some reviews and comments. Price is good, comfort is even better than Sennheiser and described SQ appeals to me as it will be a contrast to my DT990pro and Shure 840.

Right you are, but out of stock too. I notice they are always out of stock of high end headphones so expect they just order them in when a customer actually places an order for a pair. They have the best price on DT990pro too ($165.00), better than many USA stores.

Haha I guess I was spoiled by the setup at the beyer table in the NY headphone meet. They were using their excellent headphone amps.
So Yes they all sounded great but I telling you when they played this female jazz vocal the T90 absolutely had the most real and unbelievable air and presence without the treble distracting from the experience.
And I was swapping between these two over all the other models.

I can understand this since I herd the T1 and would add it seems to be more proficient at larger orchestral recordings while the T90 seems more intimate when playing vocals.
But that is to my ears so your experience will vary.. And Frank your reviews are excellent can't wait to read
