New Beyer DT1350 - Page 266

post #3976 of 3980

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

(this is about the millionth time I'd reediting this, but...)

 

The DT 1350 definitely sounds bassier to me (not sure about warm/dark). It has excellent bass that seems to extend down lower than the T51. With some music the bass can be pretty heavy if you got a good seal, but everyone's ears and heads are different so it may fit them differently.. (with me the JVC Flats I could hear almost no bass until I pressed the flaps of my ears against the pads, but the 1350 fits easily).

 

The T51i has a lighter sound, with more upper-mids emphasis. It's consumer-oriented, so less linear too. For some music I thought the T51 sounded better, but overall I like DT 1350 more. It just sounds more correct to me, like the way audio is supposed to be. T51 sounds more "enhanced" for a lack of a better word.
