New Beyer DT1350 - Page 216

post #3226 of 3806

Well, Fostex is going to release the TH600, which may be close enough for cheaper.

Can't believe I missed a chance to hear the Foxtex at the last meet

Are there any portable amps/DACs you'd recommend that would work well with both headphones?

 

I'd put that the other way around which conveys my opinion more accurately: I particularly liked the AD2K with the Gilmore Lite. Either a Dynalo or M3 are solid amps for the AD2K and any other low-impedance headphones including the DT1350. The GL/DPS in the FS forums is an ok deal - not great - but since the combo doesn't show up often, it's usually worth grabbing anyway whenever one shows up. I wouldn't personally pay much more than $400 for a GL/DPS combo, especially if it's had more than one owner (they originally sold for $499 new).

 

I can only recommend HeadAmp in general for portable amps/DACs - I've been a fan and loyal customer for years now.

whats your recomended setings for rockbox on the sansa clip zip with the DT1350?

I found DT1350 too synthetical sounding. Where is the love?

How long you have your DT 1350s? Or you just tried it somewhere? First you have to get a good quality seal. There's no way they sound synthetic to me. Probably the HE-400s but not the DT 1350s.

DT1350s are the best earpad sealed closed headphone. The Amperiors are the runner up, but they just can't match them quite yet. 1350s have deeper bass, less resonance in it's treble spike and a more extended treble.

Most of the time I just use my sansa clip zip flat as is. :D

Whenever I want to get more bass I paired with ZO2.3 and can't be any happier.

Well just got my HD25 pads in the mail and put them on. Loss of bass response obviously. I EQ'd a bit and they seem to sound pretty good and good GOD they are 400% more comfy. What a stupid choice to put thin pleather on your headphones.

 

I love the DTs but these are the problems you need to watch out for:

 

Top pleather straps from headband WILL come unglued with heavy usage. Annoyance.

 

The pleather around the ears is horse****. With heavy use you will need to replace within a year imo. This is not really acceptable as they only have a 2 year warranty.

 

The adjustment ladder can become loose leading to position change on ear which blows.

 

All I can say is they are smooth and the soundstage seems a bit different with the Velour pads. Not sure how to compare them as cross comparing is not possible. All we needed was quality material on the ears though. Bass response is affected quite a bit if you had previously a really nice seal. Oh well, cuz wearing these was painful and with the velours they are simply comfy.

About a year ago, purrin reported that there was a lot of variability in frequency response between 1350 units. He measured 6 units and each one had a different frequency response, some pretty drastic. Is this still the case or has Beyerdynamic fixed the issue?

I don't really think that any of us would know. I mean, who has new(late2012-2013) DT1350 is quantity of 6? Besides famous reviewers, but since DT1350 is a old product, I doubt new reviewers would compare 6 1350. Nonetheless, even if my DT1350 sounds different from other DT1350, I really like how mine sounds.

Well, maybe BD made a statement about it, back channel or otherwise. I dunno.

yeah. I also heard about it too. Why would beyer do this?

post #3240 of 3806

When I was looking into buying the DT1350, I mentioned this to one of the head gurus at the USA branch of BD.  He claimed to have no knowledge of it and thanked me for the information.  Who knows.

 

I went ahead and bought a pair anyway and haven't regretted the purchase for a second.  So, I either got a good pair or my ears just suck.  Either way, I'm happy with 'em.   *shrug*
