That's a bit of a pickle.  Any chance to audition other equipment -you may be surprised.

NO NO NO!
 
I have T1 2nd generation serial 28471 and my sliding mechanism is DIFFERENT than DT1770 and T1 saw at Munich Hiend (serial above 31000). I don't matter what they say, it's not nice to say they've made a silent improvement after few months from product launch but that's the situation!
The difference is noticeable using the mechanism and is also visible in the depth and shape of the holes on the iron frame.

 
Again this is from the product manager after I asked if the change had been made recently:
 
"the new mechanism was updated when T 1 (2nd generation) was released."

Well seeing as this can neither be confirmed or denied (unless photos are forthcoming), I think we should move on.  As just about every Beyer T1 owner should know -silent revisions do occur, and I wouldn't be overly surprised.  In view of the fact that we aren't going to be sending in our T1's for replacement parts at any rate, let's just accept this for what it is and keep goin'.

I finally heard back from someone at beyerdynamic about the new EDT T1G2 pads. $35US + $7 shipping. The part is not on their web site, nor do the customer service reps even know about it! You have to use a paper order form to order it. How quant. 
 
Has anyone tried the EDT T1G2 pads, the ones that come with the T1 G2, on a generation 1 T1? Seems like it could be an easy way to tune the T1, but I'd like to hear from at least one person who has tried it.

You're in luck, or maybe not because this is coming from an old guy with some high frequency hearing loss in his right ear. Anyway, I tried the T1g2 pads on the T1g1 about three months ago and I did notice an increase in bass, but you will have to use you're ears to make a judgment on how the mids and highs are affected.

I face the same issue with my T1.1 and Asgard2. Tomorrow I will take my gear to audio shop to measure.

Maybe due to the AC power is not purity. The noise is loud at my home but it is much less noisy at the shop. I think it can be resolved by the isolation transformer.

I have been following this forum for a while. Now it is time to contribute.
 
I got my T1 v2 two months ago.
 
I have been listening with them a variety of music, mainly jazz, rock and classic.
 
I had before the Shure se 535 and I was very happy with it but these headphone are a totally different beast. 
 
At the beginning was a little bit too bright for me, but then you start to appreciate the more crisp sound especially strings or acoustic instruments. 
 
Smooth bass, great mid and the high end part of the spectrum (>12K) is much better then shure 535.
 
About the amp, it makes a big difference what you use.
 
I tried before the soundblaster E5 amp/dac combo. Not bad but it was missing something.
 
Now I got the JDS Element amp/dac, it is amazing (I like more it in the hi-gain mode). Super happy with the setup.
 
Now listening the new Radiohead album (A moon shaped pool), the track Daydreaming is quite an experience with this setup.

If this continues to bother you, at least with some material, simply use an EQ (preferably a parametric EQ) to do some gentle cuts at the offending frequencies. Cutting modestly, and thoughtfully with an EQ does nothing negative to the sound so don't be afraid to use one.

Glad you like it, the treble is one of the best parts of the T1.  There is such airiness up there.
