I am selling my T-1's. They are about 1 1/2 years old. Most of that time, I have had them stored in their original metal, foam lined box. My reason for selling is that I have too many cans and need to reduce. The T-1's have been re-cabled by APuresound. The cable is APuresound's V3 cable. It is 8ft long and has a 1/4" Furutech plug on it. I would rate these headphones at 8/10 because of some minor cosmetic blemishes. The two blemishes are as follows: On the right ear cup there is a small ding. On the headband, there is a pinhead-sized nick. Neither of these flaws show up in pictures. They are in perfect working order and sound great. My price includes shipping (FedEx Ground) and PayPal fees. Please contact me with any questions regarding these headphones. Thanks for looking. Here is some info from Beyerdynamic:
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.
The increased efficiency also leaves the T 1 with greater power reserves for dynamic, undistorted sound and nearly lossless conversion of electric signals into sound waves. The extremely lightweight 600 Ohm voice coil provides transparency and perfect impulse fidelity.
The elegant look of the T 1 compliments the technical achievements, with even the smallest of details selected by hand. This model reaffirms beyerdynamic's commitment to world-class "Made in Germany" quality.
