  • Summary: The best full sized headphones I've ever owned up till now. Bass- The most deepest bass I've ever heard. It goes way down. The bass itself is very smooth, not muffled sounding, precise and has a very good feel to it. The bass impact is the best I've heard in a full size headphone after the Fischer FA002 W (8 Stepped) headphones I had. But it is pretty much on par with the Westone 3. The bass quality of this headphone is very rich and has a very precise tonality.

  • Summary: Beyerdynamic are a well known name in the headphone industry and in the professional audio world. I have toyed with the idea of purchasing Beyers on many occasions, but never pulled the trigger... until now. Specifications Style:  Semi-open Frequency response:  5 - 50,000 Hz Impedance:  600 ohms Nominal SPL:  102 dB Overview The T1s sit squarely at the top of the Beyerdynamic tree of headphones and were their first Tesla headphone.
  • Pros: Comfort, transparency, staging / imaging, versatility
  • Cons: Will absolutely reveal your weakest source links

  • Summary: This is not going to be as thorough or long as my normal reviews for now - but I wanted to get something in place.  I have always liked Beyer headphones, but they all had some very defining character or flavor - even the most neutral, the DT880/600, was a little hot in the treble and a little light in the bass, IMO.   Well, the T1 changes all that.  While maybe just a touch lush, it is possessed of an amazing transparency and neutrality.
  • Pros: World class sound and comfort from Beyer
  • Cons: Cable isn't as pretty as rest of headphone

  • Summary: My comments echo Skylab's. These are simply the best dynamic headphones I've ever heard. While the may not be technically equal to the Sennheiser HD800s, they certainly make up in the fact that their overall presentation simply works better than every headphone I've heard to date.   I love the HD800s, but I limit listening to them to jazz, classical, and some prog rock.
  • Pros: Incredibly balanced and the best all rounder I've heard
  • Cons: Nothing yet.

  • Summary: BORROWED FROM A FELLOW MEMBER   Wow, did I want to love these headphones.  And I just don't.  They're fine.  They don't do anything horribly wrong.  But the also don't do anything extraordinary, and for the price being charged, they should.  I think the HD800 is better.  However, it is a very comfortable phone and the build quality is superb.  Just a bit blah to me.
  • Pros: Great build quality, no terrible flaws
  • Cons: Joyless, lack of impact and immediacy

  • Summary: I have been a fan of Grado sound for over 4 years now. My first set of cans was Grado SR60 which I replaces with the RS2 and finally with GS1000. I loved their fastpaced and fun sound, they are and forever will be the perfect Rock and Metal and Bollywood cans! (Yes I am a big fan of music from India). But I could never wear them for more than an hour because my head would be hurting with what some call harsh treble.
  • Pros: Neutral, Comfortable, Well built, Detailed and comfortable sound, Soundstage!
  • Cons: High Impedence means you cant use it with portable sources like iPods

  • Summary: I won't get too technical or get too in depth int his review. I will just state what I believe these headphones do and how they sound, just very straight to the point.   The T1 is beyerdynamics' latest entry into full size open dynamic headphones. This model can achieve one Tesla with it's new driver and magnet system. This allows the T1 to be far more efficient and easier to amp than the DT880/600Ohm by quite a bit.
  • Pros: Neutrality and naturalness of the sound.
  • Cons: Very unforgiving of poor quality recordings.

  • Summary: When I ordered the T1 I really was not sure it would be a keeper. I bought a open box unit with full warranty. The headphones were burned in so listening time was much quicker for me as they needed no burn in. The first time I put them on using my Matrix M Stage and Marantz DV6001 was uneventful. There were no wow moments with this headphone.   During the weeks that followed with the T1 I started to realize there were no problems or colorations I could identify.
  • Pros: Very musical with great detail,bass and a stellar high end
  • Cons: expensive

  • Summary: To a headphone over $1000, how should we ask for?I am stunned by T1's ability about "Transparency", in Harry Pearson's means. All right, Beyerdynamic wins(read:beating my heart) in this generation , maybe Stax C32 could compete against ? This unlimited palpable(yes,you can even touch it!) is not about head-stage, sound-field ,or other terms, just Transparency,this is enough.
  • Pros: Transparency,vivid ,openness sound never heard before
  • Cons: Still a headphone

  • Summary: It's hard to review this headphone as it's the most I have ever spent on a headphone. For starters, I don't really care for the HD800, I do have the SA5000 which I consider much more technical. So of all three which would be the most musical, while delivering an accurate sound? The Beyerdynamic T1 of course! The sound signature is inoffensive, which is how I would describe it, it's more laid back than the Q701 and DT880. But the treble is never boring like the HD600/650.
  • Pros: frequency response, all-rounder
  • Cons: a bit boring
