beyer t70 & t70p NEW! - Page 37

post #541 of 553

I use the t70p with ODAC and the O2 (battery driver version) amp. It is well-known to handle low-impedance headphones admirably. With this setup I feel I get a very involving listening experience with classics as well as metal  :) Lacks nothing to me.  Instrumentation placements are well defined and vocals are very smooth and enticing.

 

I have had the t70p only some days now, but the sound really gets more and more inviting. "Brain burn-in" I guess.

 

I have an E10 as well, which I compared with and quickly put aside. The bass was weak and bloated and the vocie and treble seems shrieky. It must have been impedance shifting in the E10 amp I guess.

 

Anyway, I am really happy with these phones. I recommend them strongly!

Question for T70 owners, I'm looking at purchasing the T70 used, but the person says the letters on the cups are missing... Are they stickers or something? Or does this just scream counterfeit? 

post #543 of 553

Sounds a bit strange...

those silver letters are a bit raised, might be glued on or be some kind of stickers. But loosing all of them on both sides? What did the seller do with that headphone? Even if its not counterfeit (I don't think there are copies of T70, but who knows) I'd think the treatment might not have been good, so they might be in bad shape overall...

How old are they? Is there a receipt? Where did he buy them? Ask for closeup photos and post them here...

One of the letters on my t70p fell off after a serios hit. A car tyre fell on them ... But the phones were still intact. Strong quality

Hey, i have a doubt, wich do you guys think its better, t70p or srh1540? I want a really good soundstage, a controlled, a controlled yet present and, the most important, some really good mids. They might be used for travelling so isolation is very important, but might not be a selling point, as for comfort, i might use them for long hours so it could be important, and its always a nice extra, and the lower, the better, so the t70p are winning right now

Gamingmusiclove,

 

I have T70p with Beyers own gel pads and I have bent the headband, to get even a tighter grip. This results in great isolation from outside noises, while the wearing comfort is still ok (except for hot summer days, when the gel pads may make you sweaty around the ears). I'm pretty senstitive at the top of my head and my ears, while not superlarge, do extend outside from my head (for instance Nad HP50 are not for me as the pads are too small and shallow). With this said I can say that for me, I can easily wear 70p + gel pads for hours at a time with very little wearing fatigue.

For me the sound signature of the beyers is a tad too bright and aggressive, which I wish was different. This has also lead me to look at SRH-1540 and other options.

 

If you look at the innerfidelity isolation measurements, you can see that even with stock pads T70p have better isolation and in the presence region, superior isolation (up to 10dB better in some parts). This is nothing to scoff at as within this region it usually means clearly more than half the volume getting through (noise is cut to half or less).

 

Everybody keeps saying SRH1540 is among the best in wearing comfort. I wish there were better, more isolating pads for 1540s that didn't totally muck up the sound quality on them. If there were, I'd buy them in an instant, even though they are obnoxiously expensive here in the EU.

 

For portability T70P are beaters: the construction is NOT cheap-arse plastick and these cans can take a beating. They are big though and the headband is of course not of the folding type, so they take up quite a bit of space.

Thanks for the feedback! I think that noise isolation is truly important, but i'm courious about the sound signature, since you call it harsh i guess that means its a really bright and could headphones. I'll have to admit my adh700 were really bright and cold, but i enjoyed them more than my warm m-80. I guess that i'm a fan of earpircing treble

I wouldn't say it's harsh (for me), but it's on the side of leaning towards that a bit too much for my taste. Yes, I still use them daily and its' ok, but for my ears (and I'm quite sensitive to this, I dislike Grados) it's not the perfect fit.

 

The only way for you to know is to go and listen to them, if you have a chance. Supposedly SRH1540 has a more smoothed response in that critical range, so not as leaning towards harshness.

I would like to, but i don't have the oportunity, though i really like harsh sound (with this i mean that i like it as long as its not exagerates) and i'm really interested in the sound signature they posses

Also, i would like to ask, how do these pair with udac, dragonfly, fiio x5 and ibasso dx90?
post #551 of 553

Sorry, I have no experience with udac, dragonfly, fiio x5 or ibasso dx90. I use only dual monoblock solid state and SET tube amplifiers with my Beyers.

post #552 of 553
Selling mine if anyone is interested. Cheapest price I've seen. Thanks
