    Ahh that's interesting. Thanks for the tips! Somebody suggested that I should try the Beyer with a tube amp. I find it great with my collection of jazz and orchestral with its precision and soundstage, but the treb is too piercing for me on some modern music. I guess I will try EQ-ing and see if that helps a little more. Has anybody every tried the Subjective EQ preamp from JDS Lab? https://jdslabs.com/product/subjective3/

    It's really interesting that I messed around with my dac/amp combo today and found that when I used my IFI IDSD BL as a DAC via my JDS Atom Amp, the treble is so much more manageable on the T1. It seems so much harsher on revealing and neutral DAC (like my topping D50s with ESS9038Q2M Sabre chips). Any suggestions for warmer DAC that I am assuming will make the peak on certain music a little more tolerable with the T1?

    Maybe try the Schiit Modi Multibit, I’ve had good experiences with the Multibit DACs and the T1.2 and other Beyers. I use an Asgard 3 with the Multibit card on mine, don’t really have any complaints about the treble. I don’t like it the most with all my headphones but with the T1.2, Amiron Home, and HD 6XX it’s my favorite dac of mine to use.

    When I listen to digital through the MHDT LAB Canary DAC, I can go on listening all day long without fatigue just like when I listen to LPs. I can recommend this wonderful DAC.

    Folks, I am looking for earpad replacements for my T1.2. Which one do you recommend for fit/comfort and some improvements to the sound?

    Believe it or not, the FiiO Q5, the original model has a nice warmth to it, but just a bit, it still resolves very nicely. Dual AKM chips from their Velvet Sound tuned approach. I agree about the ESS sound. I have an SMSL SU-8 DAC here with dual ESS chips, forget which chip exactly. It is very nice for sure, but I actually selected it as my NAD M3 and KEF R300 speakers are both slightly warm so I wanted a somewhat brighter DAC to wake them up a touch, and it does. However, with headphones, unless they are somewhat warm, I like the SU-8 less. I find too much detail with headphones at the volume I like quite quickly fatiguing. The Q5 I found was quite nice as was the Mojo. There are lots of good choices I am sure, but frankly given the very low cost, the great sound quality (IMO) and the small footprint, having a Bluetooth enabled DAC is a pretty solid choice.

    I am also looking for very similar thing. Mine was purchased used too and the pad is not in a good condition. Does anyone know if any of the large brainwavez pads fit the T1.2? I emailed their staff and they say they are not sure lol.

    I am thinking of grabbing a pair of lusher and warmer headphone as a complement to the T1.2, possibly something in the sub-500 range like the AKG 712 pro or ATH R70x for non-fatigue listening. The T1.2 has been a treat for me in terms of detail, but I do get rather tired using it for an extended session.

    Your T1.2 must sound different than mine, as mine is a rather warm and dark sounding headphone that is non-fatiguing nor do I feel it shoves detail in my face, it’s there but it doesn’t seem to highlight it, comes off as a more easy listening and musical headphone. It’s about as warm as my HD 6XX and darker in the mids while only somewhat more prominent in the highs. The K712 is brighter and leaner than my T1.2, but I have heard T1.2’s that are brighter than the K712. Never heard the R70X.

    I believe they are different pads, not sure if you have to contact Beyer to get them or not.

    Absosultely not. The official T1G2 pads are the EDTT1G2:
    https://www.amazon.de/Beyerdynamic-...ords=beyer+edt+t1&qid=1572769605&sr=8-1-fkmr0 . But the DT1990 balanced velour pads are the same and are cheaper: https://www.amazon.de/Beyerdynamic-...yer+dt+1990&qid=1572769757&sr=8-19&th=1&psc=1 . I am 100% sure as I have bought both. I bought all my Beyer pads from amazon.de
