Any continental amp really is meant for full size headphones and of course, portables. If your primary cans are sensitive earphones, the T1 is a better choice. The continental has that warm, distortion-full valve sound that rocks especially with certain full size headphones. You can't replace that with a T1, which is built mainly for performance. Amps that are built flat out for performance will always sound different to amps built for ambience.
Have you tried the V3? Because they supposedly modified it to be also suited to IEM vs the V2.
