    Hello gents,

    Do you have compared T1.2 and Kennerton Vali ?

    Today, I received a 4-pin XLR cable for my T1 (gen 2). Wow...great match with the Cavalli Liquid Platinum ("LP.") Never had the opportunity to hear the Crimson. The LP is superb.

    the official cable?
  6. llcook51
    No. The Corpse Gravedigger. I have the same type for my HD 800S. It is excellent and a good value.

    Anyone know how the 2nd Gen T1's compare to the Focal Clear?
  8. Oscar-HiFi
    T1 are more comfortable, wider soundstage but slightly warmer and more relaxed sounding. The Clear have slightly less low end emphasis but are a step up in detail and resolution.

    Thanks for the reply, seems like the Clears are a no go for me. While the detail aspect seems appealing the bass is less than ideal for me. I have a 2nd Gen T1 (after previously owning a Hifiman HE-560) and I have to say the bass on those were close to my ideal bass just a tad more. The 2nd Gen T1's bass feels neutered compared to my 560s, it's there just not as impactful. I guess my ideal headphone would have something similar to the 560's bass (plus a tad more), a solid treble presence since I like the energy that brings and the T1's imaging. The midrange I'm not too sure about, I think I like a slightly cooled off midrange but at the same time something that lends itself well to male and female vocals. The Th909 by Fostex from what I read may be that ideal headphone but I haven't heard them yet. The search continues....

    Saw some Black edition T1.2 on Amazon for $699 and decided to scoop one up. Should be here Friday. Since I sold my DT880 600Ohm, I wanted something with a bit more detail than the Amiron Home, and while I like the T5p for portable use, I prefer open cans for at home listening.

    A scooped a pair of the black editions up on the same sale. Wasn't digging the sound before I let them burn in for a bit. Could have been that they were sitting in a cold delivery truck for a while. They are very fun now :)

    Mine came today. I'll reserve judgement on comparison to the Amiron (and to my other pairs) until I use them for a while. Nicely, they are sensitive enough to use for portable with my Pono with the balanced cable. Now I can swap Amiron, T5p, T1 with the same cable on that portable. Will also listen with Mojo, dx7s, Lyr2 and Jotunheim
