The T1 2nd Generation is one of beyerdynamic's flagship models. Packed with the latest technology and luxurious materials, the T1 2nd Gen is an audiophiles dream. It's semi-open back 600 ohm impedance design positions these headphones to high quality listening in the home.
Building on its learning's of the beyerdynamic Tesla technology, the team have tweaked the T1 2nd for a more modern market. They maintain to be extremely precise, agile and spatially transparent, however they have tweaked the design according growing demands from their customer base.
The T1 picked up many wards in its day, and the T1 2nd Gen is pushing this even further.
The production of sound is still precise, however they have made them sound more warm, and steered away from the more harsher sounds. More emphasis has been put on bass, providing a much bigger and solid foundation of lower frequencies. This is not overwhelming, but defiantly more noticeable with more upbeat modern music genres.
The T1 2nd now also has a detachable textile covered cable. This allows you to replace the cable over time in the chance of it breaking. It also presents the opportunity to swap the standard cable with a 4-pin XLR later down the line if you wish to.
Much like the original T1, the 2nd Gen has a semi-open back design. Therefore sharing the benefits and cons of both open vs closed backed design. The memory foam/ hollow fibre ear pads draw heat and sweat away from the head allowing for truly epic listening sessions.
When paired with a good headphone amp, these headphones rival that of the £1.5k+ market. Needless to say these headphones are staying in the history books!

Please note that professional reviews for headphones are much more varied than traditional Hi-Fi. With Bookshelf Speakers and the likes, it's quite often to get 5 stars straight across the board. With Headphones, it's very rare that everyone agrees on the quality of the product, therefore straight 5 star reviews are very rare. Critically acclaimed headphones will generally average around 4 stars regardless of performance, so don't be put off by this.
That being said, we always prefer to show each review where possible, even if the review isn't so flattering. It is after all a very subjective opinion as everyone has different hearing abilities and preferred styles. Think of it like wine, you can buy a £100 bottle, but prefer a £6. At the end of the day it's down to taste and taste alone.
Let us know if you find any good professional reviews and we will add them to the site!
