That open beyer - that's the T1. In my opinion it's a very good headphone for what it is, though I'm not sure on similarities between this and the T1's as I didn't manually compare them. Soon will be able to in more detail though :)
I'm a fan of burn in, having witnessed an effect on the T1's among other headphones. But for changes on this T5p scale - too much for burn in to solve IMO. Headfi seems to be very divided over the T5p's and stuff like this doesn't help. At this moment I don't even know where I stand on them!
It does indeed, that's why GSA is going to add another six hours to the event! Lol.. well hopefully in real world it looks likely it could be an extra couple of hours anyway. Burn in is not a myth but is for many, some only take double figures in hourage and then some can take an awful long marathon of hours into three digits to fully burn in with subtle changes on the way. Noticeable was with my old Double Helix cables with AKG 702's back in their day which had many subtle changes on their journey. Cheers anyway on your insight on them, I will will definitely take note on my list to listen to them at the next meet if there are a pair of T5p's there.

Don;t worry, no English club will be in a final on the 24th of May so you will be able to spend time in the bar after the meet dreaming of headphones.
Another good point though with possible engineering works that weekend and now with a Champions league final on top, what a weekend this could be for absenteeism!

Ah, Rocketron (the lurker), it was you last time with the Grados which got me onto the Vorzuge? Was meant to catch up with you but have to definitely catch up next time if you go in May. Even more so I am kicking myself as I spent time the T5ps where on but never got around to plugging them into my Vorzuge amp due to trying to familiarise myself with the AK120 sig on my cans. Ironically it was on a table with Grados at this meet that someone else was dying to finally get a listen to the vorzuge and saw my one, so maybe he might end up with one also through a demo at a head-fi meet.
What was that small amp you had with the Vorzuge last time, thought that was a Just audio amp? (although not a dac combo). Did not get to listen to the Just Audio amp/dac though as was to busy with priority on the big toy rigs for a desktop set up for next year some time as feel the Vorzuge has really plugged a gap in my portable needs currently as well as still been happy with the TTVJ Slim amp alongside it which i still flick back and forth to.
My next portable cash is set on a Sony ZX1 when it is released in Japan in December.
If a porta amp was good enough with the built in dac I would be all ears but always do wonder how much possibly quality has to give way to cramming them both in a small box?
Was surprised how well the PS1000's sounded on the small Vorzuge considering their price tag, but not before I actually found out their ohm's and how easy they are to drive despite their size & price and was happy listening to them on the diddy little Gruber's German tank of an amp and was only left thinking how these would sound with a top amp/dac combo next to my armchair at home!
Have to catch up next year and exchange notes instead of been passing headphones in the night...
