But yes, sound preferences aside. Comfort has to be the winning factor in this case.

Having a tough time here enjoying my hd800s and speaker setup. It's summer time and the apartment we are in doesn't have central air so this thing in the window makes noise as loud as a city bus...................  Not even once a week I can turn it off and enjoy them for a hour or so.

Eh I have a similar problem. I have a noisy portable air conditioner, and it's not so easy to appreciate the high end sound of hd800 with background noise.

A bit frustrating.

Being winter here in NZ it is rather cold in my music room and houses usually don't have central heating.A hot cup of coffee/tea and some good music helps to enjoy the HD800(funnily enough,I do like to swap with the HD600 from time to time to readjust my ears/brain and then go back to the HD800 after a while).
And NZ is Third World but that's a German speaking!

After some days my hearing gets used to the HD800 and I need a change of "sound signature" to reappreciate the outstanding qualities of the HD800.

I'd think  it's a good idea. I really  appreciate the hd800, when I switch from the hd595.

And soon or later I  get used to the sound signature, and it fail to "surprise" after some times.

I do that too, in my case, I swapped with hd650, lcd2.1 and many more. That's why more than 1 headphone is required smily_headphones1.gif

Here in Asia(Malaysia) its impossible to live without A.C or a fan running with windows wide open.. The heat is ridiculous at times.. I had to buy the quietest fan i could find to better enjoy the HD800s.... First. World. Problems. indeed... lol

If we had a ceiling fan it would buy me more time but I don't think the landlord would like that. This house was built in 1890 :/

Is HD800 brighter than Beyerdynamic T1 ?

if what u mean by treble...my answer is NO. The HD800 has a warmer sound (noticeable in the MIDS and the LOWS). I would say is a typical of Sennheiser house sound with a much refinement. The HIGHS is more smooth and less zizzy IMO, but the T1 is not harsh at all, it just more neutral and more cleaner sounding and that what makes the T1 sounded more treble than HD800. But the T1 has more body to sound, more meaty presentation IMO. The BASS i think HD800 has a softer and deeper, but the T1 has more quantity of it and hit harder. Both are quite good. I can not say which one better. Is more like to personal preference. But if you like a neutral sounding, extreme detail and best sound image...i think should try the T1. The HD800 has a wider soundstage, but i do feel sometimes they just to wide at a time, luckily, the HD800 has a bit of that warmer side, so the sound somehow is just so "unbelievable" relaxing. Listening to HD800 is like you are in real live concert, inside the building...while the the T1 is like more private, when you are in the studio room, just you, the singer and the band and you can clearly hear and picture every single sound that come out -- is very intimate sounding IMO.
