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.
Summary: Please be advised that I am only writing this review to help other buyers. I am not trying to upset any T1 owners and it's my honest opinion. If you think it's unfair please state so in the comments and I can reconsider although I have enough experience with headphones now to know what I like.
Pros: Excellent detail and instrument separation, good balance between bass, mids and treble; relatively lightweight and comfortable
Cons: unacceptable distortion, erratic highs, this is not worth $1,400, not even close
