This thread was also utterly ambiguous: http://www.head-fi.org/t/627820/improving-the-comfort-of-the-dt1350-with-two-new-earpads-from-beyerdynamic

 

Would you mind identifying which model you prefer?


Just found the nubuck thing: http://www.beyerdynamiconline.com/Product.asp?Prd=908363

I wonder if it's the same from SL and just a typo on their side. I guess suede and velour are the same?

I traveled to Cuba with my 1350's and have to say they are a perfect traveling headphone. Enter to win a pair at www.gearphile.com

After just a bit of testing today I prefer the larger pads.

 

 

 

Was it worth the cost?

Ya.... was it worth the cost?

Someone you can be a Celebrity in the DT1350 thread if we can just get some impressions from these alternate pads on here. biggrin.gif

Yesterday I've tried both the larger and the Nubuk pads for some time. The Nubuks feel about the same to me as the original pads, the larger ones are a bit more comfortable but I'm having problems getting a seal -- the foam is new and a bit stiffer than my old original pads (I've had and used them for quite some time).

 

I guess when the larger pads are worn in they are a bit more comfortable and might even get a better seal (as I managed to get sometimes during testing) and therefore a bit stronger bass. Overall tonal balance seems unchanged -- but I'm using them primarily in public transport and with EDM, so your milage may vary.

 

Are the worth their money? Considering the shipping costs (€21,- for me from Germany to Austria) I'd say no. When forced to buy replacements new pads due to wear I'd take the larger version when ordering. But they do not make a difference worth 15% of the headphones purchase price.

 

Another thing: I can now understand all the people stating the DT1350 has no bass... In most cases its due to seal issues I'd say: I know how my pair sounds... with the replacement pads I often have the same problem nevertheless. The foam does break in with usage, but you have to wear them -- electric signal alone won't do the trick.

Thanks for the low down. Much appreciated.

Yup. You pretty much just saved me 75 bucks. Thanks for the impressions.

No way! 21 euros just to ship from Germany to Austria??? That's insane.

They were really friendly and helpful (I changed my order afterwards, adding another item), but they only offer express shipping... when ordering headphones the shipping is not that expensive in relation. I ordered some other things as well (headband cushions and a case for my DT770), so it was OK overall.

Hey guys, what's new? Haven't been in the thread for quite some time since my headphones needed to go back to the factory. I sent my headphones back for repairs and after 2 months they are back. But with flaws. Now, they are scratched around the cups. What the heck? It looks like literally someone is jamming onto the cups with screwdriver or something. Nevertheless, I missed my headphones so much, felt like I could overlook their new physical flaws every time I put them on. wink.gif Lodged a complain to Beyer, wonder what they could do.

Here's the scars on one of the cups.

^ eek.gif wow.

Whoever is responsible for that repair obviously has no business being a repair tech! Hope Beyer steps up ;(
post #3013 of 3806

Looks as if someone had problems getting the cup back into the metal frame... even more frustrating as the repair took 2 months :-(

Sorry to hear that, I sure hope they can help you out.

Well focker tells me their service is outstanding so I would reach out and see if they will rush you a new pair or something like that.

I had an unreal experience with the Beyerdynamic authorized repair center in the US, that's for sure. Literally had them shipped, fixed, and sent back to me all within about 10 days. One of the best customer service experiences ever. Not sure who Beyer contracts with in other countries, but I would contact Beyerdynamic directly for an issue like this...that sort of damage is absolutely unacceptable.
