sucks that i couldn't wake up earlier to defend the T1. why does it have so much hate? is it those graphs posted a while ago about some quality issues? or just that its picky about amping?
i find my T1 to be right at about the same level as the HD 800. it does sacrifice a bit of soundstage and some accuracy in the bass, but what it has is musicality, a slight warmth in the mids that gives naturalness, and a slightly faster sound than HD 800. with the WA2, theres no harshness in the treble and everything just balances out really nicely, im sure it sounds even better with more expensive amps.
i cant decide which one is better and both get tons of listening time.
the T1 for sure get more listening time than the LCD-2, since the T1 are good with just about any genre of music.
but anyways, T1 are very underrated as a flagship. i feel that besides the Ultrasone flagships or D7100, the T1 is viewed as the 2nd worst, and thats just ****ed up!!!! the T1 might not be as technically perfect as LCD-3, HD 800, or some of the others, but its definitely just as fun and enjoyable while still having top level performance. no-reason for it to be viewed as inferior to an HD 650 (an excellent headphone, but seriously?)
