New Beyer DT1350 - Page 251

post #3751 of 3813

@wakeride74: While I can't relate to your assessment of the DT1350 (to me its neither lifeless nor sterile) you might want to try the T51p as after a short listening session I'd classify it as quite a bit warmer.

Another observation I had with my two sets of pads on the DT1350: they get softer after about two weeks of daily use, the seal gets better. That could change your impression as well.

These pads wer available for the original model as part# 910376 'EDT 1350 SL Softskin large'. Maybe you can track them down with that reference.

 

The german Beyerdynamic shop seems to have them available:

Well, I've had better luck today. The sound is very sensitive to position on the ear and I found that moving them back a bit made them sound less hallow and a bit more engaging. They do become uncomfortable after a couple hours and id like to hear more space between instruments but given the price and portability I'd say these are pretty solid. Microphonics are a bit high but again, all things considered they are good. I'd like to a/b with the at's es-whatever to see which I like better.

Comfort and seal will only get better.

 

Glad there's been improvement...

Yes, they are very position-sensitive... but once you get the hang of it its quite easy to put them on in the right position.

Soundstage is not especially wide, thats right.

And don't a/b them with the T1 or something similar... while I still consider the DT1350 to be my best portable set so far they are quite far away from what I enjoy at home: the direct comparison was a rather sobering experience, especially the soundstage comparison.

I'd check out the T51p nevertheless, their pads are softer and their tonal balance is less monitor-oriented.

Balancing the DT1350 really did open up the soundstage a bit...

Inspired by the photos posted in this thread a friend started a similar project... not done yet, but the first steps look quite promising I'd say...

 

 

 

 

PM me if interested, he can do more of them I guess.

Excellent video review DF!! I miss those little Beyers myself (I've bought and sold them a couple times). Maybe I'll pick up the facelift version in the future. Those mids and bass extension are addictive.

Hey roma long time no see, its so nice to see you again. So whatcha rocking nowadays?

beerchug.gif Nice to see you too buddy!

These days I've been swapping between the M-100, the XS, the Momentum and my Z1000. Here and there I'll throw in the HD25 (can't let that headphone go for the life of me). Oh and I absolutely love the Yamaha PRO 500 but I never take them out because they're a little clunky/heavy for portable use IMO. The M-100s are my favorites at the moment for portable use (the sound sig is quite perfect for trains and public transportation and the XL pads are a plus). They've always got me head-banging and jammin' and I don't even consider myself a basshead. Still I miss those little Beyers for what they provide - very neutral, great isolation with crazy amount of detail from top to bottom (and then some with that sweet bass detail/extension). Such a unique and great headphone in its own right. How about you, what are you rocking these days?

Nowadays I'm all over the place. Do a search on Google for Arly Borg YouTube and you'll run across my video review channel. I'm also a guest writer for audio360.org. Life has gotten fun for me on this end. Right now I'm loving the HE-400 and Alpha Dog, they're both mine, and I expect to be reviewing the Enigma in the near future

Bought myself the DT1350 and that is after listening to a few others like the KEF M500, Shure SRH1540, Focal Spirit Professional, and Sennheiser HD25 Alu. Tested the T51 as well and hated it. Too boomy on the bottom end. My preference is a more "neutral" tone with a more balanced mids (slightly pronounced). These are to replace my worn out Sennheiser HD25-1 and at the same time, something that does not sound too far off from my Westone W40s, which I absolutely adore.

Tested them using a FiiO E17 + iPod Nano 7th Gen. (E17 with treble at +2 to boost the high end a little). Love the sound.

Build quality is not too bad, like how Beyer has packaged this with a decent carrying case. Looking forward to the 200 hours burn in and hear the sound "mature". Clamping is slightly hard but I believe that will ease up over time. Isolation is very good. Love the pads. And according to those who have experience with these cans, the pads will only get better and provide a better seal.

Thank you, those who have shared in this thread who helped me decide to include the DT1350 for my "auditioning". So many headphones out there.

Glad you like them :-)

Yes, the pads will get a bit softer over the next two weeks or so, providing better seal and a bit more comfort.

 

Have fun & enjoy your music!

I'm a few months into breaking my dt1350s in and as far as on-ears go they've become super comfortable although i have a large head and have the headband extended all the way out which may help with comfort.

Its Interesting that you found the t51 boomy, the reviews i've read claim it has less bass.
