I liked the T1 when I owned it but the HD800 is on a higher level for me.

Yeah, this is about where I part opinions.  T1 is overpriced, not on the same level with the top dogs, but it's still a high-end headphone, and I think it does several things better than the HD650s. Yet very different sounding. If you are expressing a huge preference for the HD650s, which I can understand as I owned them twice, that's fine. But the T1s are by no means a downgrade. :)

I'd rather have a 650, too, honestly.

As a non HD800 and T1 owner this thread is an interesting read.

 

But surely you are not comparing like for like?

For me an open headphone will always sound better than a closed or semi open one, in the same price/quality level.

 

Getting a closed headphone to sound really good is tricky, and that probably explains why Sennheiser

don't make one.

I think of the T1s as open headphones. That thing with semiclosed is a bit like semi-virgin. I think they're not. Perhaps I could say they're just not as open as others.

My analogy ends here. :)

do you like anything Solude ?

post #2200 of 18817

That's because they're bad.

 

Oh, and no, Solude doesn't like anything. :D

have you owned the t1s

post #2202 of 18817

and tried them with the right tubes

post #2203 of 18817

I heard them once and that was enough. With multiple tube amps and a solid state amp as well.

 

I'd be willing to try them again, but I really won't go out of my way to do so. I was extremely excited to hear them, but they were sibilant no matter what I plugged them into.

 

I've never experienced another headphone that has been that way.

Well, I don't think the T1 is bad, just overpriced.  It got me to sell my R1 LCD-2 to buy one.  But in the end I prefer both the HE-6 and of course the HD800 to both of them.  But yeah, asking if you should get HD800 or T1 in the HD800 appreciation thread...   might get some biased answers biggrin.gif

Don't worry about trying to get others to like a headphone because you think it's good.  Everyone has their own preference and some go solely measurements.  Just continue to like what ever it is you like.  

 

Enjoy the music..
