What about Mt. Doom?
A long time ago I tried the t-90s, those had a serious Mount Doom: serious ear burning fatigue. I think the peak is high enough, in frequency, on these that they don't sound overly sharp for me.
Always been curious about the modding potential with these if you take an HD800-esque approach, alternative pads, various damping, etc.
I should clarify that I got these on the cheap for about $350. I would never pay a premium for any beyerdynamic. I really like it as a contrast to my LCD 2 cb and hd650
Thing about the T1 (gen 2?) is the peak is almost narrow enough it seems to work with a Helmholtz resonator as on the HD800. That'd be interesting perhaps
I just immediately disliked the T1 gen 2, so I wouldn't bother modding it. The gen 1 is the only Beyer I really liked pretty much as-is.
T1v1 + Crack was the only time I ever enjoyed a Beyer. (I wish other Beyers sounded good, because they're amongst the best-looking phones.) Have fun with it!
