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.

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.Read more ›
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. This also means your amp won't strain to power them like some amps do with the DT880/600 (and this is from my experience).
IMO the Tesla 1 is at about the same level of the HD800, but I vastly prefer the T1 as it sounds more natural and dare I say less synthetic than the HD800. The HD800 has a leaner sound with more prominent treble and less bass, though the bass on the HD800 is slightly more accurate.
Well onto the sound. I will be comparing to the HD800 in this review as I find them to be in the same league. I will go in sections: DETAIL, TRANSPARENCY, TREBLE, MIDRANGE, BASS, SOUNDSTAGE, CONCLUSION.
With this headphone you can hear a lot of things you may have never heard before, such as footsteps, raindrops, and even whispering. The detail retrieval is very close to that of the HD800, but rather more subtle sounding. The HD800 seems to revel in it's ability to bring out the smallest details. The T1 still has nearly the same amount of detail as the HD800, but it's just not so painfully obvious. The HD800 makes you want to focus on the details while the T1 is more of actually listening to the music, but that's my view on it.
Man oh man these cans can reach deep into the music.Read more ›
If you're going to get these, do your research. If you're going to drop $1000+ on headphones, you need an amp that is going to do it justice. I find that these really shine with Tube amps. With the right setup you get accurate unbloated / uncolored sound. Imaging is spot on and the soundstage is large without being to distant! Make sure you also have a good source and use good music files. As with any high-end headphone, you need good music files. Audiophile headphones are like audio microscopes, you'll be able to tell the difference between good audio files and bad. If you are considering the DT770 - DT880 or the DT990's, do yourself a favor, just save up for these. They do everything thing those headphones do right, without the flaws (DT770 has bloated bass, DT880's can be a little thin however for the beyer's they are second only to the T1, DT990's have great bass but they are severly shrill and have a lot of sibilance).Read more ›
