I quite enjoy them for Classical music as well. Just adding that data point-- numerous genres are agreeable on these cans.
This right here!

Listening on my T1.3 to some wonderfully recorded and mastered performances of Stravinsky by the Minnesota Orchestra. . . there's a stretch of albums, the 'Prof Johnson Reference Recordings,' done for HDCD that really just have some amazing dynamic range (even in good old fashioned CD quality lol).

<edit: great description and look at the DNR rating care of LoudnessWars: https://dr.loudness-war.info/album/view/85625>

The T1.3 really shines with this kind of range, it can go loud without hurting but retains detail. Pretty sure there was much 'Fletcher-Munson'ing in this can's design process...

Here are a few very fine sounding recordings that I personally think are also well performed and are great to listen to.

1. “Unseen Rain” Ginger Baker Day Eight Music DEM-028

2. “Belafonte Sings The Blues” Harry Belafonte Impex IMP-8304

3. “Belafonte At Carnegie Hall” Harry Belafonte Analogue Productions CAPF-6006-SA

4. “Weekend In L.A.” George Benson Warner Brothers 3139-2

5. “Time Out” The Dave Brubeck Quartet Columbia/Legacy 8869739852-2

6. “The Dave Brubeck Quartet At Carnegie Hall” The Dave Brubeck Quartet Columbia/Legacy C2K-61455

7. “Cities Of The Heart” Jack Bruce CMP-CD-1004

8. “One More Car, One More Rider” Eric Clapton Reprise 48382-2

9. “The Trinity Sessions” Cowboy Junkies Analogue Productions CAPP-072-SA

10. “Kind Of Blue” Miles Davis Columbia/Legacy 8869727105-2 - better than the MFSL SACD hybrid, I think.

11. “My Funny Valentine” Miles Davis Columbia Legacy CK-93593

12. “Four & More” Miles Davis Columbia/Legacy CK-93595

13. “Love Over Gold” Dire Straits Warner Brothers 947772-2 - this sounded better equalized than the original US CD to me.

14. “Rumours” Fleetwood Mac Rhino R2-532752 - I'll bet the original CD is even better.

15. “Bill Frisell With Dave Holland And Elvin Jones” Nonesuch 79624-2

16. “Fillmore West 1969” Grateful Dead Rhino R2-73193

17. “The Private Collection” Charlie Haden Naim NaimCD108

18. “Aerial Boundaries” Michael Hedges Windham Hill WD-1032

19. “Live In Berkeley” The Jimi Hendrix Experience Experience Hendrix B0001102-02

20. “A Little Light Music” Jethro Tull Capitol 94637097823

21. “Live And Let Live” Bobby King and Terry Evans Rounder CD-2089

22. “Win This Record” David Lindley and El Rayo-X Asylum 960178-2

23. “Baroque Favourites” Jacques Loussier Trio” Telarc Jazz CD-83516

24. “Trio Live” Pat Metheny Trio Warner Brothers 947907-2

25. “10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1” Midnight Oil CDCBS 25314

26. “Twin Peaks” Mountain Sony/Windfall SICP 1784/5 - the first time this live recording sounded great. Less gritty than the US CD.

27. “Truth, Liberty & Soul” Jaco Pastorius Resonance HCD-2027

28. “Aja” Steely Dan MCA MCACD-37214

Thanks! Will work through them.

Have been enjoying these cans all week, haven’t found anything that I don’t enjoy through them yet. They pair really well with the TA-ZH1ES.

Listening to Infected Mushroom - Head of NASA and the 2 Amish Boys at the moment, has a lot going on in the opening track but these handle it extremely well.

You're just down the road from me. Hope the floods weren't too close.

Congratulations. I hope you like them. I am looking forward to read what you think about them. :)
I see you also have brighter headphones in your collection as I do and they just did not fit into the rest of my gear. But wow they do sound great once your ears get adjusted to the darker signature.

I owned three of those (two already sold, one still available...). They are of very good quality for a reasonable price, not too stiff, nice understated looks. I don't own any amps with XL4 anymore (and neither T1 or T5), but I really liked those cables.
