beyerdynamic T5p: Photos and first impressions. - Page 70

Yea there is zero strain relief both on the termination. 

i have been experimenting with cup rotation, I find that if I rotate the headphone 90 degrees to the back it alternate the sound nicely. it would be nice if they could revise the t5p and replace the headband with something that grips a little better (like their dt1350 models may but for larger headphones?)

Good idea. It's still in warranty. Do you think they will repair it for free despite me being the 2nd owner?

I just looked at the European Guarantee and it says two years for the original owner.. I still think I would be tempted to pop into a local dealer or contact Beyer directly and explain the situation. It has been my experience with companies of this quality that they would still honour it even though your not the original owner. worth asking anyway.

Here is a link to the page I read.

I found this interesting from CantScareMe from the recent London Meet:

The one at the meet though was a different beast all together. It was like they were a cross between a d7k and T1, where the soundstage was large, period. Huge soundstage for a closed headphone and it had so many other good qualities to it where it didn't sound bright or tizzy in treble and it had a solid bass response. 

The ones I had were burnt in for over 150hrs, so either the T5p's need a much longer burn in or there are some solid production variances between models. Interesting.

Thanks Mate.

 

I've sent Beyer an email regarding a free repair. I was under the impression the T5p came with 5 years warranty? Beyer will confirm and I'll then post back.

The T5p is a truly amazing headphone. I had the HD650 before, paired with a fiio e9. Now i have the T5p which doesn't need an amp. I'm not to comfortable doing a comparison or review right now since i just received them. What i can say as of right now they are airier and the soundstage is better and also imaging is better and has awesome midrange!

Wow! And I was actually thinking of buying the HD650. Welcome to the Club and enjoy your stay. :beyersmile:

The HD650 is less forgiving than T5p. However the HD650 is a marvellous headphone in suitable systems, one of the greats and worth exploiting.

The T5p sounds more lively compared to my old setup. The vocals have more life it seems...i have heard the HD650 is dark but i don't know.

T5p conforms to a portable ethos, 3.5mm termination, closed, functions brilliantly on average, good and very high quality portable equipment, short cable. HD600/650 is focused on mains bound, installed equipment. Naturally people use it however they choose, nevertheless the design goals are clear.

Just got confirmation from Beyer that the T5p comes with 5 years warranty, at least in the EU.

post #1047 of 1958

That is good to know. 

post #1048 of 1958

Yes, Australia also. One of the reasons I'm reluctant to upgrade the cable here.

I also received confirmation from Beyerdynamic that they will repair my T5p even though I am not the original owner, as long as it is still in warranty and I have the original receipt. :bigsmile_face:

Truth be told you are not the only one. I did not want to say it before hand but I have heard them offering such services few times. But honestly repair is not that hard anyway (unless it is a driver issue).
