Carefully intensified bass
If you are contemporary music lover, then T1 second gen headphones delivers the low-frequency foundation to its best.
Tesla technology with innovative sound transducers
The electric signal is converted into sound vibrations with virtually no loss of performance giving dynamic response.
The new edition of the T 1 with textile-covered double sided connection cable and screwable jack plug provides optimum sound transmission. Also it can be exchanged for an optional cable with 4-pin XLR connector (Removable design over T90)
Extraordinary Comfort levels for hours of music
T1 second generation is backed up by Soft, hollow fibre velour ear cushions which transport warmth and moisture away from the head, enabling you to enjoy music for hours.
A memory foam layer beneath the velour cover makes the ear cushions exceptionally soft.
Completely open design
Major difference in T90 vs T1 is the Open backed design, providing you a wider sound-stage. The music sounds as if it’s surrounding you. The Open backed design delivers sound without boom, the airy reproduction of sound delivers a neutral, flat sound.
As final note from me,
Go for T90 when you wish to begin with more serious music listening and tight over your budget, whereas more serious critical listeners shall graduate over to the second generation T1’s.
