Which portable amp drives our t5p?
What are you using, any Ray Samuels, Fiio...? Any suggestion?
the meier stepdance looks interesting, but i don't like to change batteries. for a portable device, i would like to charge it by usb or at least over a power supply.
How long could you run this compo whit one battery?
Around 12 hours with good 9V batteries.
There certainly are options out there, I just mentioned the Stepdance as it is a really good match with the T5ps, but I bet there are other options too.
ok thanks for this information’s.
My current Favorits are quite different in price. I hope also in performance.
RSA Predator or Fiio E10
Does any one have some experience with these combinations?
Jude, was your a special order that came with the Metal box of the T1? I would take that any day over the case that i got with my T5p. Do you know where i can get the metal case from?
My T5P just arrived.
I am rather close to extasy.
Stunning stright out of Sansa Fuze, even with 192kbit files (but only just, - vaw rips seem to sound the best).
A bit more fun than DT 1350. Latter considerably improvewd over a month -- let's see if any burn-in of T5P will take place.
In the meantime, they just beg for a bottle of Pauillac or Margaux.
I think the T5p now comes with the metal box, I heard somewhere, not sure. Let's face it the T1 looks better, it's open-air, and it has a... metal box! Clearly the portable (32 ohm), closed-back, T1 in reindeer skin without a box, is a joke... and it even costs the same!
It's nice like that.

Your comment above makes it sound like you hate the T5p, or the idea of the T5p, compared to the T1...
Either way, I love these cans. I actually did a pretty cool test to see how accurate the T5p's are at recreating the original source. I A/B'd a live orchestra playing the works of John williams and a lossless recording playing the same pieces through my T5p's. I've gotta say I'm pretty impressed with how true to the live sound these headphones are. Especially the depth and separation.
Have you received it yet?!
No not yet. 6 weeks delivery time. So I still have 4 weeks to wait.
On Beyerdynamics website they talk about a "New Version":
Should I expect any changes to the headphone itself?
Pretty sure the 'new version' just means it includes the metal box/case vs the felt case that last years T5p's came with.
I suppose that hatter from Bavaria became tired of making cases for the T5p out of reindeer felt. Looks nice, a portable statement, I'd prefer an industrial looking box for these though.
