The (new) HD800 Impressions Thread - Page 148

post #2206 of 12500

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..

Best way to describe the T1 is that it is in a constant state of confusion. Every genre is produced in a different way than is normal. Every instrument is just slightly 'off'. It's like the T1 is speaking through a translator.

The T1 just has no magic to it.

Right.  I hear no magic with it as well.  To me it masters nothing, but is pretty good at a few things.    

 

Now the HD800 and the HE-6 are Jack of all trades and Masters quite a few things.

but you listen to mostly metal which is treble heavy so no wonder. paradoxper

And so do I. I love my metal music. And I fully enjoy it with the HD800s. :) Not so much with the T1s - it sounds fatiguing after a while, and a few things not quite right.

Exactly. It's fairly good though, but we're comparing flagships pretty much. It doesn't measure up.

I listen to mostly metal, sure. But I also listen to pop,rock,classical, etc.

And to that, the HD800 should be terrible with your thinking. The T1 is a fun can, nothing more. Regardless of genre.

Talking about metal,just listened to "wasted years-Somewhere in time" by Iron Maiden

Just out of the head that guitar intro,skipped it back 5 times thinking WTF am i hearingL3000.gif

Probably also caused by my new D18,that thing is awesome.

You're trying to defend a headphone in another headphone's appreciation thread. Just stop.

Telling people they just don't like it based on musical preferences is stretching by ANY means.

Even if and when Flagships are compared.  There is a first and there is a last.  None the less they're still flagships.   Just because the last doesn't measure up to the first doesn't mean it's not a flagship.

No argument here. T1 is in the top 5 for me. It just happens to be #5, personally.
