You should have bought the T1's with you! It didn't drive the T1's (or most likely the K182's) to their full capacity. Lehmann Studio Cube was the amp. I listened to the same tracks at home with the graham slee UL diamond to confirm that the main characteristics shone through, the ones that the k812 won in. The T1's prefer a tube like amp and the Slee is designed to offer just that in solid state form. Very good with the T1's. Say if it were this amp used - I reckon the k812s still would have sounded superior. I promise that if I have left my T1's at home I would be able to say much less on how the AKG's compare with other flagships - an a/b listening session is needed especially when one of the headphones you are hearing is for the first time.
