New Beyer DT1350 - Page 266

post #3976 of 3983

Hi there, new here :)

I'm really intrigued by these headphones, having read that they might suit classical music very well. I pretty much want what Shoebappa describes, though I'm only an amateur musician. Ironically, here in Germany, the DT1350 are much more expensive at 220€ and that's just a little more than I'm willing to spent. Now I can get said K545 for only 100€ and since they have been suggested here - should I give them a shot?

Especially Mahler is sooo demanding, but I can't really find too many reviewers talking about this kind of music, so I'm really unsure. In short, what the headphones have to do is to offer as much differentiation as possbile. Also I don't give a damn about any "characteristics", it just has to sound true to the various instruments of a symphonic orchestra. I suppose that kind of headphone would work well with chamber music anyways.

Any suggestions?

Wow I just got a pair of these in the mail and I am so satisfied with the DT1350. In the states they can be had for as little as $120 refurb/used on flea bay or other retailers if you can catch a sale. I was not expecting the bass that the DT1350 produces!

 

Years ago when I started my lurking on head-fi to find the perfect bass head headphones for an affordable price, I would hit walls with each headphone and iem purchase. The low end would bump but the mids would be veiled and some would sound murky or too dark and so I moved on to Beyerdynamic DT880 and DT770 to see how a more neutral revealing sounding headphone would be like and I thought I kicked my bass-head wants. I was content for many years.

 

But now I believe I have found a pair of headphones that really satisfy all my wants. The mids are just there and a bit thick and the bass is everything I want for the hip hop and rnb genres I listen to. Very happy. I have a huge head but surprisingly not having comfort issues maybe because they are used and pre stretched for me. The seal on my ears are perfect and just loving the isolation. I listen on the go with the LG V10 and its a great combo. However I do find the sound of the DT1350 a bit laid back for me.

Guys,

So I've been reading this thread and also the T51p/i thread.. I am a bit confused when comparing these two headphones.
Which one has the dark sound? Some say that dt1350 has a dark sound and some say that the T51 is the one with the dark sound.

Not to mention, I am also a bit puzzled because "dark" characteristic is never been associated with a Beyer phones. I've never heard a dark beyer phone in my life

Little help please

I would not call either of them dark, but the T51 has a warmer signature with more midbass and a bit softer treble. Neither has the beyer peak though.

There seems to be a bit of a unit to unit variations at least with early DT1350, which may explain part of the differing reports

The DT 1350 definitely sounds bassier and darker to me. It has excellent bass that sounds louder at sub 50 Hz than T51. With some music the bass can be pretty heavy if you got a good seal. For me the T51 has a prettier, lighter sound which may be more musical.

seems like the DT1350 is forgotten now. has anybody find another headphone to replace it? I've had mine for over 3 years with heavy use in office. around a year in I had driver replaced on right side and the headphone never really matches since. ( more bass on from the older driver side) I have a lot of open phones but this is my only closed one now.

 

so far I see to get significantly better sound from DT1350 with are the full size closed cans. but I don't know if any of them can match this one for sound isolation?

 

anyways for anybody who doesn't want to spend too much on audio just get this one for office use you will be very happy.

 

I can confirm this headphone goes through break in. the bass increase quite a bit and you can feel the vibration. when new it doesn't do that. that is with the same audio source.

 

so yeah anybody can recommend me something else? not ath-m50.

M50 is poop.

 

Is the earpad sealing properly on the right side?  Double and triple check, this can affect sound quite a bit.

 

Also, check that the voice coil leads aren't touching or criss-crossing.  Move them away from each other more if they are close together, circled in red here:

 

 

Beyerdynamic didn't insulate them enough or something.  This can pose a problem for T50p, T51p, and the DT1350 variants.  If the leads are too close together, touching, or criss-crossing, you can get imbalance of some kind or another or just overall dark, quiet, and low sound quality.

Use a toothpick, needle, or xacto knife with an unbroken edge, and steady, very slow movements with extreme care while viewing the leads with a 10-20x magnifying loupe to see clearly.

In the photo above, I moved the leads apart already.

very good information. thank you. I bet if anything to do with imbalance what you shown there most likely be the cure. I think mine is sounding a bit better now. but later when I am bored I will disassemble and take a look at it. that is some thin wire need that kind of magnification.

 

seal is good on earpad. it's broken into with my ears only. no sound leakage at all.

 

hope my T1.2 won't get this problem later.
