beyerdynamic T5p: Photos and first impressions. - Page 3

post #31 of 1273

as expected from beyer? i fear there going to be a 250ohm version as well?

post #32 of 1273

They look smaller then T1.

Seems like they've already begun shipping to resellers. SoundEarphones says they are shipping out pre-orders now

Twas a joke.

I am not interrested in this for portable use unless it weighs half of what the T1 does. Of course the cable is thinner and that helps a lot. But very interresting thing Beyerdynamic is on to now. T1, T5p T50p... what could be in the pipeline?

Looks alright. I wouldn't have a use for it but it's nice to see beyer pushing such quality products into the market.

It's still a model that perplexes me. US$1K, large, portable (?) and conservative styling ... but we'll see what isolation and SQ are. 32ohms impedance doesn't make it immediately easy to drive, but if it was a studio upgrade for the DT770, then they would have made it 250-600ohms, so there's gotta be a reason why they made it 32ohms...

Nah, leave something for the recablers.

If it weighs half of what the T-1 does and sounds almost the same, I'm in.  880 comfort is what I'm looking for.

I pulled this pic off another site.

They are quite big for portable use.

If looks don't deceive me, there's no cup variation with the T5p? If that's true then it's dorktastic for actually portable use. The only major engineering concession to portable use (apart from the cable) seems to be moving the Tesla logoing further down so that the earcup supports aren't compromised by the cutout as on the T1.

 

 

The timing is odd though... I was thinking, rather than messing around with trialling yet more legions of low-priced closed phones I might as well just step up to the E8 as a winter portable. Then this comes out. Funny that. I'm sure Audio-Technica must be readying the ESW9999.9999 as well

ED8 now has some competition I guess

post #42 of 1273

I wonder when AKG will come to the party with a new flagship. All other manufacturers are very busy nowaday with launching flagships.

My guess is that since Harman Group acquired AKG they are more into mainstream consumer products than the love of High End products and the [costly] pursuit of great sound.

post #44 of 1273

They don't have to. If they think there's no money in it because the high-end space is too crowded, they shouldn't. They do have to worry about brand equity though.

I dunno about that.  Harmon has some pretty high-end brands too.
