    As a proud owner of Beyer T1, which cans am I missing?

    I have all sorts of cheap cans, in-ear, over-ear ANC, closed over-ears, but they're all for-purpose, while the T1 is for pure fidelity. What am I missing to complement them? Do some preferably closed cans deliver a much different signature more comparable to speakers listening experience? I have...

    Looking for closed cans with a signature similar to the HD650.

    Noise isolation important. ANC is always low quality so out of the question. Should be affordable because I don't have time to sell them as used in case I don't like: budget $100.

    JDS Labs ATOM Amp

    Atom sounds much better than Topping imho.

    Someone heard both the Atom and the Topping A30 and can compare the two?

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I believe the BHC does more than give a "hump" in the upper bass, it also smakes the attack and decay sound more realistic. I attribute that to the high voltage it can reach. It does sound a bit colored though.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    The HD650 sound too unnatural to me, too much bass and no treble. The T1 sounds too neutral to me without impact to the drums etc. Which cans are a compromise between the too?

    The Official Beyerdynamic T1 Impressions and Discussion Thread

    1. Does the amp choice significantly change its signature? 2. Does it have a synergetic pairing e.g. like the hd 650 and the crack? Would going over from say the O2 to the BHC make a huge difference? 3. Looking at the measurement for the T1 and the HD650 the T1 has a THD spike in the 1k-2k zone...

    Which SS amp made you smile as much as the BHC? Are they really comparable? According to one of the first matches in Google:

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    I ordered this amp to power the hd 650 and T1. Now I'm trying to figure from the specs if it can drive them properly based on your calculation... Looks like it doesn't have the necessary volt output. And looks like this measurement agrees with it...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    You put it a lot better than I ever could, I wish there was a way to give you 10 'likes' or at least buy you a beer. I sometimes think nawguy or whatever was the creator's nickname started that project to double-irony troll the hi-fi community. That said, which amp costing the same or less...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    If the O2 was defective or the cans had a peak I'd be able to tell from listening to test recordings and AB'ing. I'd agree with you the O2 transparency was at fault if I didn't own a very transparent very analytical set - Dac1->T1. It also wouldn't make sense the BHC sounded so much better...

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    That's really weird, I was certain the HD600 and 650 were 600ohm and I owned the 650 for quite some time. I've listened to the O2, BHC, DAC1 built-in amp, and numerous Chinese brandless amps. Thinking about it the HD650+BHC+HRT II+ combo was as perfect as it could get - even though it sounded...

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    Any used or Chinese amps drive the HD600 decently? I spent too much recently to get something expensive.
