Depends on your head size to be honest; as i have no issues with the T1's moving once you have a good fit - would say HD800 and T1 are on par in that degree; own and enjoy both :D

I wish there was a way to combine the T1 bass with everything else of the HD800.

I got to hear the HD800 through my WA2 and there is no problem with bass. I have the T1 and i thought the bass of the hd800 was warmer and more extended. I only got to hear it for about 40 mins but i will own it soon enough.

I've always preferred the HD800s bass as well-but I can't complain about either honestly. The Senn's seem to extend lower and have more texture-the T1's bass a little fuller/rounder. They're both quite nice though...

my feelings exactly.....

Rumour has it that the new AKG812 combines the best of both worlds!

Gotta admit I loved the K702's bass from the m-Stage back in the day. Not sure how I'd feel now about that...

There was/is an italian dealer on eBay. A friend bought from him and all went well. It may be worthwhile to PM the seller before buying.

+1 I prefer bass from hd800 too. Your description of both bass match exactly mine. T1 bass is a little more 'fun'er, punchier type.

I prefer t1 bass but i also like hd 800 bass which can have more slam but less punch

wasn't really a review per se

 

just a bunch of comments on the woo audio thread, and amongst other threads.

 

mostly the WA22 is warmer and lusher, its quite tubey in the fact that it focuses on the midrange alot more than the GS-X or most amps. the soundstage is huge, better than GS-X and seems to have more space, 3d with the right tubes. 

 

however, GS-X mk2 is basically better in every way, i do not find it brighter, or more fatiguing, or thinner in any way. but its musical, neutral, transparent, and works with everything i throw at it. the background is black on GSX MK2 whereas depending on the tubes, it can go from almost black to a grey background on the WA22.  the WA22 just has a better soundstage and is better for someone who wants tube sound. performance-wise, the WA22 is definitely end-game. having almost no grain, great detail, and great dynamics as well as a beautiful tube midrange. 

 

one downside with WA22 is that with some headphones, like my T1, i notice a slightly lighter bass, cause the midrange is more forward, its not as noticeable on other headphones like HD 800. the bass is textured and deep though, which is good, depending on tubes of course.

 

the GS-X has the best bass i've ever heard, its neutral, but not light, cause it has plenty of control, punch, slam, and authority, the bass is so clean and extended, its amazing really.

Interesting finding about the T1 + WA22. That issue sounds like the WA22 could use some additional capacitance to handle the T1's ~1400 ohm load in the bass department. Talk to Mr. Woo and see what he thinks about this. There's no such thing as too much capacitance either :)
