    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...

    JDS Labs ATOM Amp

    I just got a $100 (not including shipping and tax) JDS Atom and it sounds absolutely amazing with my T1, almost as good as listening to my home built Jim Holz's Finalists speakers... No aliexpress equipment for that price sounded that good.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I read they are very similar. Perhaps I have to refine my question: is there a can which is as natural as in accurate and detailed as the T1 but with more "body" and impact? The HD650 are far from natural but in the right direction in balance compared to the T1.

    Looking at the specs, which amp it more capable of driving the Tesla T1?

    Thanks a lot. By the way, I contacted JDS and they said as long as the DAC output 2Vrms it's fine. (My HRT II+ outputs 2.2Vrms).

    Looking at the specs, which amp it more capable of driving the Tesla T1?

    The T1 reaches up to 1200 ohm impedance. It appears the voltage the amp is capable of is a good indication for its audio quality. Tube amps excell at driving high impedance cans and have much higher voltage.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Anyone has owned both the 650 and the Beyer T1 and can compare the too? I've sold my 650 and kept the T1 but would like to hear other people's opinions.

    Do you own a high end speakers set and still find yourself returning to cans?

    What draws you back to HP's? As anyone who owns both knows it's impossible to reproduce with cans what a set of full range can. In my case it's not being able to listen to loud music just in the time I most desire it which is late in the evening - without loudness it never sounds great. Some say...

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    BHC = Bottlehead Crack (+Speedball). The kit is $430. Sounds very tubish and colored but it also has a sound like nothing else I heard.

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    As someone wrote in a post I can't find again, it's like comparing apples to oranges, since both have different characteristics, for example there is a higher THD in tubes but the harmonies which are distorted are different, with the fundamental and first harmonies distorted mostly, which sounds...

    Which is why I bought the O2, but nevertheless it sounded awful to me.

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    The O2 is the worst sounding amp I listened to. Is that your impression as well? Which amps did you contrast it with and liked better at the same price class? I had a $90 Chinese HA5000 clone which sounded a lot better.
