Jude - these are truly wonderful broadcasts - thank you.

post #33 of 128

Thanks for the review. I am looking forward owning one of these DT1350.

 

BTW, I always thought th HD25 had metal-cups. I saw the Adidas version in store near me. By the way of how these headphones are build, I thought they mistook the price.

 

Nice haircut Jude :)

Great review!  Thanks, Jude!

Jude congrats on the review, it's great. You got me to want to try out the HD-25.

 

Just a note: people always complaint on the plugs. If it's a right angle, it should have been straight; if it's straight, it should have been right. You're pretty much safe only using a 135º plug, which is in between both. Seriously now, you're right that the plug (pun unintended) is more accomodating on a right angle, but when you try placing it in your pocket, you'll see that the cable is shooting to your pocket side, and then goes upwards. That turn is unnecessary and uncomfortable, and you can only avoid it by putting the DAP in your pocket sideways, which most of the time doesn't fit or feels bulky. Straight angle plugs don't have that issue - the cable shoots straight upwards. All in all, we can agree it's a minor detail and that by satisfying one side, you'll upset the other tongue.gif

Great review! I'm also curious about a comparison between the DT1350 & Beyerdynamic's T50P(which dissapointed me a little). The designs look remarkably similar sans the split headband in the 1350(T50P is split but not adjustable) & the specs, the T50P with 32ohm impedance and a narrower frequency range. Has anyone compared the two? Because after Judes review I'm seriously considering ditching my T50P's & giving the 1350's a shot rolleyes.gif

Agreed, I changed cables so I could have a straight plug for my rig, but I can't see Jude fitting that rig of his into a pair of jeans with out the aid of shoehorn! Tailor made pockets for portable rigs may be something to consider?

When I tried the Adidas HD25 in a store, I thought they feel extremely cheap. I also didn't dig the blue, but looking at it now in the video, I think it looks pretty sweet.

 

However, I didn't get into the sound presentation although I read plenty reviews before and kinda knew what to expect. They did sound very warm and a little dark with a strong emphasis on bass, IMO.

 

I will definitely try the DT 1350 now!

Great review!   The dt1350's are intriguing.

the clamp is significant, as with any supra aural noise cancelling headphone.
