My SN is 11XXX which is the very early batch biggrin.gif

Ha -- 10097 :-)

They started at 10000 as a Beyer rep told me... Don't know if thats correct though.

 

Regarding the T51p: to me it has a bit too much midbass and is a bit too warm overall. Still like the DT1350 signature better. Nevertheless its worth giving it a try, everybody hears different and likes different things... Comfort is another thing altogether, there the T51p beats the DT1350 hands down.

so the first 10000 units were test units? :D

 

damn....i thought mine was the early batch...close enough tho. 

 

I am deciding on the HP50 and T51p. I just don't like the squarey headband of the HP50.

I preferred the sound of the 1350s as well, although I was in the minority (several of us compared them at a headphone meetup).

 

Regarding comfort, I have actually gotten used to the clamping force of the 1350s.  It's like a nice comforting hug.  While the earpads were certainly softer on the T51s and it was easy to get a good seal, I constantly felt like the headphones were going to fall off my head.  The lack of an adjustable split headband also really bothered me.

I've come to really like the split headband, as well. Especially when I lay down, they stay very secure on my noggin.

You should try, it eases the grip a bit...

Development sure was a complicated thing ;-)

But 10000 prototypes would be much more than units sold, so I guess it might be true that they chose that as an offset.

 

The T51p is overall a much less intrusive design and looks very good with its minimal approach. The cups with the tough of champagne are well done, it seems very robust. My only physical problem with them is the dual-entry cable...

 

The HP50 does look good in my opinion, though the headband does stick out quite a bit. Not yet decided if its OK to walk the streets with it... regarding sound both are very well done, the T51p having a bit more midbass.

 

Both are warmer than the DT1350, which is more monitor-like to me, i.e. does not try to impress you with an interpretation of the music (that exaggerates the point regarding the T51p and the HP50, they are not colored) but simply transports what is coming in. Which bodes very well with my love for electronica...

Happy and proud DT1350 owner here!

Its been a week since I got the 1350, so far so good! I'm using it with E12 (with bass boost on :basshead:), right now I'm waiting for the arrival of the T51 ear pads. Love this headphone!
