beyerdynamic T5p: Photos and first impressions. - Page 30

post #436 of 1405

After some comparison between T5p and T70p I find that the T70p brings voices more forward. This Amy Winehouse track is a perfect example:

On T5p the voice is behind the instruments and with the T70p the voice stands out in front of the instruments. I prefer the T70p with this track...

I'm looking for the best closed headphone for me. Do you guys think the beyer T5p is good for rock and metal? Would the ultrasone signature pro be better for me instead?

I listen to quite a bit of rock and metal (a bit of everything overall, but definitely highest proportion of listening time is with those two genres). I really like the T5p for them, however I've not yet heard the Sig Pros (hopefully soon get some of those too though).

There's one thing I'm concerned with. The T5p are said to be really revealing, and they give out flaws in poorly recorded songs.Most of the rock/metal bands I listen to have albums that were recorded fairly well so that's not much of a problem, I'll just get the best recorded album and rip it into FLAC files in my computer. However, I also plan on using the T5p with my ipod and a portable amp. Is it possible to put high quality tracks from my albums in the ipod, or will the files become compressed and lose the quality of the recording? I'm assuming FLAC files would not fit in an MP3 file, but will most of the quality be lost and will the T5p reveal a bunch of flaws, or is it honestly not that much of a problem?

Ive decided to ho closed instead of open, I prefer having a headphone for all uses, but yeah, I change my mind a lot tongue.gif.

Right now, Im in doubt between the beyer Tp5 and the ultrasone signature pro for rock and metal

Not to knock the t5p but word on the street is that they are somewhat bright.  For Rock and so on you may want something a bit more forgiving.

 

Im sure the t5ps have there strong points, the Sig Pro may be a better bet.  Keep in mind that every hp is flawed in some way,  the challenge is deciding on what flaws you can live with.

 

Read some more user impressions on the t5p it should help paint a clearer picture on what they may be like, same goes for the Sig Pro.

Yeah, and out of a portable device the T5p might be too revealing. I've read that the Sig Pro is a LOT more forgiving.

The T5p is not that revealing when it comes to portable sources. Actually it is somewhat forgiving and can sound great directly out of my iPhone. From the Hisoundaudio Studio it sounds amazingly good. I think the T70p is less forgiving when it comes to source material and bad recordings than the T5p. The T70p can sound a bit boring if the source material is bad where the T5p has less treble and a softer and warmer sound.

Some more good points for you to consider daniel521 in your quest.  Maybe your starting to see a trend here (daniel521) , and that is that many hps get alot of things right, especially in the top tier arena.

How is the sub bass on T5P?  Do they give enough impact with electronic music?

post #447 of 1405

Is the beyer t5p capable of a good amount of bass without distortion? I will need some extra bass when gaming and when listening to metal, so would it be a good idea to EQ the bass a bit?

There is no distortion on these, but you are looking at the wrong headphones.

They do, but no in this can. This one is concetrated on clarity.
