Made in Germany, the T 1's elegant looks compliment its technical achievements. And even the smallest of details have been selected by hand. They also provide very high wearing comfort due to its velour earpads and leather headband pad. .
The T 1 2nd Gen delivers outstanding sound quality with the aid of its completely redesigned transducers with Tesla Technology. With this, its 600 Ohm impedance and 300mW power handling capacity, you can now almost double as much volume as traditional headphones.
The new edition of the T 1 comes with textile-covered connection cable and screwable jack plug that helps in providing optimum sound transmission. Its conductors, made from ultra-pure OCC copper, are among the best the industry has to offer.
The T 1 2nd Gen provides outstandingly neutral and balanced sound and its semi-open design ensures that you are isolated against exterior noises without completely muffling them. It offers greater performance reserves for dynamic and authentic musical fireworks.

The T1 is simply better than them in sound quality while listening to music, be it mp3 or FLAC or DSD. However for watching movies, I still prefer the HD650 due to its forward mids (esp the vocals), I can hear the dialogues even at really low volumes (though I am yet to complete the200-hour burn-in for T1). Please note that the T1s are simply fantastic for listening to music even at low volumes even now, its just that for movies, I prefer the HD650 vocals.
I was able to drive the T1 using the JDS Labs C5 amp running from FIIO X3 2nd Gen line-out. However the T1s sounded much better when driven with Chord Mojo (DAC & Amp) and it’s a delight to hear this combination.
To summarize, I would say that the Beyerdynamic T1 2Nd Gen is a clear winner and would please any audiophile. Just that it being a 600-ohm headphones, need to be driven by compatible DAC and amp.
Thanks to headphonezone for making this accessible to India at a very competitive pricing.
There are reviews stating that the Beyer dynamic T1 2Nd Gen are equivalent to what a BMW is in the world of cars and opinion polls in head-fi.org where this headphone has more votes than Sennheiser flagships or high end planar magnetics (from Audeze). After hearing the T1 2nd gen for few days, I can tell that all those claims and posts are indeed correct, this headphone is absolutely fascinating.
Out of the box the T1 sounded little bit muddy (esp the vocals). As per some articles these require around 200 hours of burn-in to realise its full potential, so I started with the music playback. Now after around 60 hours of burn-in the headphones sound extremely sweet, and the muddiness seems to have disappeared. So yes, these headphones do require burn-in.
Comfort: These are extremely comfortable even for long listening periods. The ear-pads are soft, and the clamping force is not high.
Isolation: These headphones offer best of both the worlds by being semi-open. I do have other open and closed headphones. But the semi-open design give you the airiness of open headphones, at the same time does not make external noises interfere you from listening to the music. So it’s probably the perfect design for isolation without compromise in sound quality.
Sound signature: This is the most imp aspect of any headphones, and the T1 really shines in this area. What sets them apart are better instrument separation, smooth sound without loss in clarity, exquisite full-bodied bass, rich & slightly recessed vocals, the list can go on and I am running out of words to describe how good these headphones sound. In the premium, highly acclaimed category, I do own the Sennheiser HD650 (open) and the Shure 1540 (Closed) headphones. But the T1 is simply better than them in sound quality while listening to music, be it mp3 or FLAC or DSD. However for watching movies, I still prefer the HD650 due to its forward mids (esp the vocals), I can hear the dialogues even at really low volumes (thou...
