Thank for the review Drew!  Can you comment on the T70p versus the DT1350?  I currently own the DT1350 and enjoy them  for work and I'm patiently waiting for a better close headphone to replace my Denon D5000. Hopefully the T70 will be it.

 

Thanks!

That is disappointing.  I was hoping for something around the $200-300 range from the Tesla line.

Why would they price them the same as the DT line?  That would be a stupid business decision.  It's likely these are intended to be a new line, to reach for new market in that new price range and performance level, not just a refresh.  That way they keep selling the DT's in the lower price range and sell these as well.   At least until their price comes down after a couple years.

I was hoping for a replacement to the DT line rather than something falling between it and the uber high-end.

570 Dollars, it better be good. I mean if a K240 DF can sound just as 'clear' as a HD800 I am not going to buy that HD800. 

 

Picky with amplifiers, annoying to say the least...

I would not say they are a forward Bright phone but they are also not laid back and lush like an HD650 or LCD-2. I guess it comes down to your sensitivity to HF. Otherwise I would say it makes sense. I find it to be a good at all things phone but not perfect in any one area. They are definitely a very fun headphone if you get my drift.

I like a nice, warm, musical signature, with enough bass to rattle my teeth when I listen to dubstep but musical enough to deal with double-bass drums.  From the reviews, I felt like the DTs would be a little harsh and the recessed mids put me off.  

 

Considering I'm planning to spend around 500 on the cans alone, and I don't have any way of demo'ing them, I'm forced to base my decisions on reviews exactly like this one.  That said...what's the sound signature on these like?  Given what I just said, do you think it's worth me waiting for?  Have I finally found my perfect set of 'phones?

Any internal pics of the driver & the dampened cups?

We should be able to recable. Just waiting to see whether we can do a split mod.

Poop. Forgot to take that picture. And sent back the phones to Beyer. Will have the 250ohm soon and will take a picture of that. It is basically a foam circular pad that is glued to the back of the cup.
