Although distortion is bit high, I still love my DT1350.

Actually that bass distortion isn't bad, as the midrange is clean. My biggest issue is the 10k spike/ringing, but most supra aurals have that issue by design.still the best supra aural design IME

I love the mids. I also think that it's the best supra aural, but I haven't any ultrasone.

The guy in the store when I was buying my T5P was raving about the limited edition Romeo and Juliet models, he had the Juliet and let me try it and like all ultrasones it left me cold and the local price here of that puppy was $2300 with taxes!

I don't know what it is about Ultrasones but there is not one yet that I have heard that produces a nice sound, they sound artificial and cold if that makes sense?

I love the DT 1350's they're perfect for my tastes and needs while commuting. I have had no issues with them being uncomfortable, they're really the nicest portables I've ever had or listened to, hands down. I would never try comparing them to something like my 650's but not because they can't compete in quality of sound but because they are two entire different animals and again for the type of phones they are I feel there are none better.

Leckerton UHA-6S.MKII pairs well with DT1350.

My time to replace the ear pads smily_headphones1.gif what you guys suggest? should I get the velour pads or should I stick with the larger pleather pads?smily_headphones1.gif

I bought both in december, tried the nubuck (which is not leather but also some non-natural material), did not find them more comfortable than the standard ones and kept the larger pleather pads on. I've found they need some usage to soften up, after about 2 weeks the seal got better (like with the standard pads).

did the nubuck changed the sound signature?

by the way, where did you source yours? can't seem to find any pads online (US) for the larger pads

hard to tell -- I did not keep them on for long and both the original pads as well as the larger ones needed about 2 weeks of daily use to soften up.

 

Mine came directly from Beyerdynamic (I'm living in Europe), maybe you can order them via their US representation? The part number is "EDT 1350 SL"

Loving this combo....

This is my first pair of Beyers, and I'm now believing they won't be the last.

Love that combo!

So, how is this for a testimonial of the DT1350's.

I was listening yesterday in my local coffee shop to the new Janos Starker Mono release from HDTT. DT1350's/HM801
An older lady came up to me and asked me about the headphones as she was looking for a new pair.

I let her listen to mine and told her about the recording she was about to listen to.

Anyway, she is listening and I am seeing tears well up in her eyes. She stops, puts down the headphones and I say how wonderful it was to see someone so moved by the music to which she replied that there were two reasons, the first being that she had not heard cello replayed so well on an audio system and secondly the tears were for the loss of her close friend.. Janos Starker!

You could have knocked me down with a feather, what are the odds eh! She was friends with him for over 50 years, performed with him, worked on albums with him, just amazing and so wonderful something as humble as a replay system can connect someone so deeply to the music!

Are you sure she didn't well up after telling her how much an HM801 was?..........biggrin.gif

 

All kidding aside that's a great story, and I have no idea how I would react to that.

 

I was just listening to Esperanza Spalding, and wow, its like the DT1350s were designed around her music.  There is beautiful separation allowing her feminine voice to compliment her double bass playing.  Just a wonderful listening experience....

I get a full-size hp sound quality with my DT1350 using this combo:

 

 

 

I don't get the same experience using my momentum with the same setup. The DT1350, IMO, can be a legend in portable cans category. It scales way better than the others, using a proper setup.
