See this is what I thought initially and I know it is definitely possible to get decent mixes on headphones alone, I'm having a right struggle at the moment though and I don't know if this is down to me or whether I need a flatter pair of headphones for mixing, or monitors. I can get my mixes sounding good in my HD25s but they just don't translate, I always loose my low end and the stereo image is always too narrow or way too wide.
Those T1s look amazing however, might be a bit out of price range though!
