Completely re-engineered transducers (drivers) based on a neodymium ring magnet with optimized magnetic field characteristics. This combination creates a magnetic field inside the transducer which is far stronger (> 1,2 Tesla - measuring unit for magnetic flux density - with current headphones the strength of the magnetic field is < 0,65 Tesla) than in standard headphones. Because of this increased magnetic field, the voice coil is more compact but still provides a very high degree of efficiency. The membrane, consisting of a 3 layer "compound foil", delivers an extremely precise frequency response and guarantees, in collaboration with the strong magnet, a transparent and distortion free sound.

The completely redesigned transducers achieve values of over one Tesla (a unit of measurement for magnetic flux density). That provides the listener with almost double as much volume as traditional headphones.

Absolutely clean and neutral sound. Very warm (when audio track is such) and transparent. Also using Nuforce HDP for 24bit 192 khz output (mac only supports upto 96khz). Also using amarra (standard).
I can listen difference between same song in 24bit 192khz (hd track), and 48khz compressed (bought from mac's popular online music store). The HD track feels more real. The voice is more authentic, and personal. Online stores need to upgrade their bitrate. Why are we running on such low bitrates? If people are willing to download, they should provide the 'HD' audio.
I listen to my music via my iTiunes library exclusively, and my entire CD collection has been ripped to either Apple Lossless Format or WAV format, and is served up through a Macintosh laptop via a USB connection to a Headroom MicroDAC and ultimately through a Beyer A1 headphone amp to the cans. Nothing changed in the setup except the cans themselves when the T1s arrived. At first hearing, since I was anxious, my initial response was "no big deal, not sure they are worth three times the price of the 770s." But, after burning in for a week or so, I started to notice that they most definitely are worth three times the price of the 770s. The differences are in the details, which is really what makes the music exciting. It didn't take long for me to notice that the sound of the bass fiddle in my jazz recordings was 'guttier,' much more natural sounding, and that the high of a triangle was crystal clear. And with this comes a definition and a presence that I did not think possible for recorded music. The best recordings in my collection really do sound live, like I am there, and that is very rare for a headphone or speaker system.
I put on an old Sinatra album, "LA is my Lady," which features the Quincy Jones Big Band, with Lionel Hampton, the Brecker Brothers, George Benson, even Michael Jackson. Every single instrument and voice was clear and distinct, on a rock-solid soundstage that was far bigger than a constricted spread across my eyebrows. I realized that I had never actually heard the album before! Old Blue eyes was more in the room than in my ears!
In comparison to the 770s, I would have to say that the bass is less punchy, but I have a hunch that the reason I perceive this is that the bass was overly punchy on the closed-back 770s, and now I'm hearing it 'right.' Perhaps Beyer was a little overambitious with the heavy double cord, which looks big enough to use as lamp wire, and is obviously set up to allow modification to biamplification, but I quibble. Some country singer hoped that there will be beer in heaven. Forget that. I just hope there are T1s.
