Beyerdynamic T1 (second generation) Headphones
What we think in the Inner Sanctum:
The 2nd generation T1 is Beyerdynamic's top-of-line headphone, and provides everything that designation implies. While the original T1 was prized by some, Beyer listened to every criticism it heard about the original and went to work improving the sound...more bass, cleaner highs and an overall improvement that is immediately noticeable. The T1 is now truly one of the best headphones in the world.
When talking about the best, words cannot give you the sound. How about setting up an appointment to do your own "flagship shoot-out" listening session?

From the manufacturer:
TOP QUALITY "MADE IN GERMANY"
The T 1 stands for top sound quality and precise workmanship like no other headphones from beyerdynamic. It is the flagship of beyerdynamic's premium range for the home and its unique Tesla technology sets new standards. The T 1 plays crystal clear, excels with faultless impulse fidelity and long-range, power sound quality. Its frequency range is extraordinarily harmonically tuned; its reproduction is spatially transparent and offers enjoyment of music for the most demanding of listeners..
SILKY-SMOOTH WARMTH MEETS PRECISE BASS
The second generation of this high-end model impresses thanks to a new, even further enhanced tuning with a touch more warmth and musicality that will delight audiophile listeners. Moreover, a carefully intensified bass gives fans of contemporary music, in particular, the low-frequency foundation that they are looking for.
TESLA TECHNOLOGY FOR GENUINE MUSIC ENTHUSIASTS
Tesla technology uses innovative sound transducers with over 1.0 Tesla (unit of measure for the magnetic flux density). The headphones therefore permit practically twice the volume of conventional models. Thanks to the enhanced efficiency the electric signal is converted into sound vibrations with virtually no loss of performance. The T 1 therefore offers greater performance reserves for dynamic and authentic musical fireworks.
STUDIO-QUALITY PLUG-IN CABLE
The new edition of the T 1 with textile-covered connection cable and screwable jack plug provides for optimum sound transmission. Its conductors, made from ultra-pure OCC copper, are among the best the industry has to offer. It can be removed from the headphones and, if required, exchanged for an optional cable with 4-pin XLR connector. This enables users with a headphone amplifier with the right outputs to take advantage of 'symmetrical transmission'.
HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS – ELEGANT DESIGN
The elegant appearance of the T 1 rounds off the technical fine details with the individually selected construction right down to the tiniest detail. The open earcups covered with a delicate metallic grill and subtle colour shades round off the premium appeal of this headphone model. The T 1 received the international design prize "Red Dot design award" for this in 2010.Soft, velour ear cushions made from hollow fibre are further hallmarks of the new generation of the T 1. They transport warmth and moisture away from the head, enabling the listener to enjoy music for hours without any unpleasant build-up of heat. A memory foam layer beneath the velour cover makes the ear cushions exceptionally soft.When not in use, the headphones can be stored in a luxurious hard case with a hinged lid. Not only is this ideal for transporting the headphones, but also perfect for displaying the classic piece next to your hi-fi system at home.You will enjoy the T 1 most impressively with the A 2 headphone amplifier from beyerdynamic – the "dream team" for true music lovers.
