Anyone got an updated link for those replacement pads? The: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=&sku=770460&Q=&is=REG&A=details
Link is dead now.
I just removed my last experiment. I had 3 adjusted sizes, but with the T1, I prefer the original sound, even though the highs are too much sometimes. Maybe it's me, but it sounded dull.
On the other hand I’m happy with the Anaxilus modded HD800 for over a year.
I think I might have the perfect mod for people who want to tame the T1's highs just a touch without losing the air and space that makes the T1s so wonderful. This mod involves the use of dense, but soft adhesive foam that I originally received as part of so car audio gear. It's Nitto brand No. 500, but that's all I know. It's basically like memory foam, is self-adhesive and about 4mm thick.
The mod is very simple.
@Aeolus Kratos has also tried the mod so he might be willing to share some impressions here and I am helping another local Head-Fier with it soon so will get his opinions as well if possible
Here are a few pics:
Can anyone recommend any tracks that really reveal this treble issue? To be honest, i haven't been able to tell that there is an issue with my T1's, mostly just curious at this point.
If it ain' broken...
It can also be a case of sources and synergy, or of our ears all being slightly different
Often is the fact that as everyone has different ears eg we listen to the same things in a different way, so sometimes our "sensitive" areas to peaks above 4-5k and beyond are not where the heaphone "tingles" the most. On the other hand, a nice balanced system just sounds right! With age and as our hearing deteriorates we become less and less sentive to sibilance and treble peaks.
