I will get the chance to audition these three at my local shop in the next week where the T1 and LCD2 are priced $1000 and the HD800 $1200.
I will be listening 90% of the time through an iphone (320mp3) and ALO RX mkII and 10% of the time through a Cyrus CD/ Amp output to the ALO (the Cyrus has no headphone socket).
I listen primarily to electronic music with some ambient, classical and rock thrown in and am looking for a meatier upgrade to my pair of 325is. I will likely keep the Grados, so a complimentary pair would be cool.
My question is, do I just go for the pair which sounds best in the shop or should I take into account that I may in the future buy a full sized amp to attach to the Cyrus system and take into account that the Senns may scale up better?
This will likely be my last purchase for a while so I'm looking for a good all-rounder.
