New Beyer DT1350 - Page 178

post #2656 of 3807

This can't be good.  I have been listening the the dt1350's for a week or so straight at work and swapped back over to hd600 today.  Not that it's fair but the hd600 destroys the dt1350 in every way that matters to me!

lol.. nothing wrong with loving a headphone better than another one....I think it's great news for you, actually...I love the fact that I have a headphone that just does it for me more than any other. I think it can be hard to find that sometimes, so embrace it! :)  Your 1350s will get over it...

I feel the same way with my DT880s, but only when hooked up to my Asgard.  There's no way I'm dragging that combo all over town tongue.gif

That's why I have great IEMs as well.

Even DT-1350 attracts bit too much attention - far too nice looking, Terminator/Frankenstein monster style. beyersmile.png

The same thing happened to me where my gold piece fell out from the extender brand new. Must've been the dodgy eBay seller or I'm just super unlucky.

 

Wasn't the sound or isolation I was dying to experience -I know its only portable and probably the best overall yet for this size but still I was hoping for more. I even tried it with the Fostex HP P1 cause of popular reviews. Didn't make much difference tbh. Would I lug around a placebo when pocket space is a premium? Its regrettable. (HP P1 is good portable just not much diff as far as the dt1350 is concerned) So 1k down and I am shaking my head -Is this really one of the best headphone and portable setup money can buy?

 

To be fair it was ok on my generic desktop tube build for the T1 namely the W4S dac2 > WA2 I guess that's my benchmark expectation but I'm not using it desktop. I wonder if it needed more burn-in time although it has had at least a decent week... If only it wasn't away so long for repair. We'll See.

 

Update: Just wanted to say that the Hp P1 made the vocals a notch ever so slightly less harsh and in my face to my ears with the 1350s than directly out the iphone 4s although somebody out there with clever tinkering on the EQ might come close. I am finally starting to appreciate this setup a bit more with some usage.

I leave the thread for a couple of weeks and return to almost 10 pages of posts. I read the first dozen posts or so from where I left off and decided to just jump to the last post. The little I read didn't seem to yield anything new I didn't already know so I figured why bother reading any more.

 

A little update concerning my DT1350, a couple of days ago I received a new DAP, the HiSound Studio V Player 3rd Anniversary Edition. I paired it off with the rest of my gear, my IEM's a Grado and a V-MODA headphone, and got some very positive results. Today I finally got around to pairing it up with my DT1350. I left the DT1350 to the very last because I was thinking it wouldn't pair off as well with this player compared to my other gear due to the DAP having a slightly more forward sounding treble then I'm used to with mainstream DAP's such as iPod's, Sony Players, or the Clip+. I think everyone would agree with me that pairing this headphone off with gear that would load the upper range with to much energy would impact the sound in a very negative way. That DT1350 upper range and upper mid range has enough energy and really doesn't need anymore.

 

The good news is the DT1350 sounds very nice with the Studio V Player. Although my early findings of the player having slightly more forward highs then I'm used to with other DAP's still rings true it doesn't seem to impact the DT1350 treble in a negative way. It's not harsh sounding whatsoever and the highs still seem detailed and smooth with a touch of sparkle. The best part, the DT1350 is driven very well with the player meaning for those DT1350 owners looking for a all in one solution may want to look into this pairing. I haven't done any direct A/Bing as of yet but early impressions still point to my ALO RX MKII, my top amp in my mobile gear arsenal, still being able to slightly edge out the Studio V. That being said the Studio V is not far behind in sound quality and is by far the better solution for those looking for a small mobile on the go solution. I decided to try out the Studio V in an attempt to free myself from having to always carry around my brick sized iPod/RX MK II rig and thus far I'm quite impressed with the results. Where the RX MKII seems to excel the most is in bass impact while the Studio V excels slightly over the MK II in the mids, vocals are no longer shouty sounding. I'm guessing the shouty vocals are more the fault of the iPod DAC which pails in comparison to the V Player DAC.

 

Anyways guys I thought I'd check in and post my early observations. I'm guessing there's probably someone out there who was thinking of getting away from their iPod or whatever mainstream player and was hoping to try and find a all in one solution that didn't involve carrying a brick around. I'm confident in saying the Studio V easily bests the mainstream players on the market. As for the external amped mobile brick sized rigs it holds it's own against them.

 

God bless guys

And I'm one of those guys. Thank you very much for sharing your observations! I'm just curious though, if the bass impact advantage of the RX MK II over the Studio V is by a huge margin.

You're welcome, the difference in bass impact isn't noticeable unless you're looking for it. The only reason I noticed it was because I was listening to songs I have used in the past as a benchmark for gear. I've listened to these songs a 1000 times on the DT1350 while paired with the RX MK II and I was able to notice it after a few songs. A person who was A/Bing between the V player and the RX MK II and wasn't familiar with both gears would probably take a short while to arrive at the same conclusion. The difference in bass hit isn't huge by any means but it's there and once you notice it you begin to notice it throughout your music or at least for me that was the case. I intend to do some direct A/Bing down the road between the V and the RX MK II.

 

A little advice, if you decide to get this player be warned the UI is a little buggy but it works well enough to get by. If you read through the Studio V thread I've linked in this post you'll see what I mean. Another thing, if you go to the Studio V 3rd anniversary edition thread and message Jack Wu you're interested in purchasing the player for review he'll sell it to you for half price which is a substantial saving.

Glad to know it's almost unnoticeable! I love the bass of DT 1350 and I don't wanna lose any of it and now I'm guessing I should expect for a more improved low-end as my best source is just an E17. That's a tempting offer though I won't be qualified at all there as I haven't written any serious review yet here on head-fi. I won't be buying it soon because of the price but at least I'm aware of the products to definitely look into whenever I got money. :) Thanks!

I totally agree. I have the Hisoundaudio Studio as well and it is a wonderful little player with great sound quality. I wrote a little bit about the Hisoundaudio Studio a while ago and compared it to HifiMan HM-601. Also one of the major advantages for the Studio-player is its extreme batterylife.

Just got a bunch of King Crimson's 40th anniversary series albums and I'm playing them through foobar2000 with 24/96 files and these new mixes are superb. Utterly state of the art stuff. Islands sounds godly and so do the others. Man, some of the best music out there. People should look into them if they like that kind of music.

 

The DVDAs are packed with content as well. Both of the recent mixes plus outtakes and rough mixes of albums in most cases.

 King Crimson rules. I'll have to look into the 40th anniversary series - thanks!

just got this baby a few days ago...been burning them in using jlab's online burn-in and xlo rr burn-in tracks....imho, simply awesome pair of cans!

 

i was lucky enough that i live near a Jaben store so i get to compare a few cans (actually a lot of them) before i made my decision to purchase this one. i got to audition the dr100, m50, srh840, t50p, dtx501p, k550, hd25 and, d2000 - the dt1350 fits my preference.

 

this is my first set of cans :) i'm more of an iem user when i started this hobby.
