Sealing (and therefore the bass) gets better after some time as the pads soften up with usage... have fun!

post #617 of 815

Sealing for me has never been an issue, comfort has....but I done listen for hours on end.

 

Enjoy!

I wonder why they have not released an cirumaural version of the DT1350.  So many people love the sound, yet so many hate the comfort.  I bet an over  the ear model would take care of the comfort issue (I bet it would open up the sound stage a little bit too).

At its $170 price point the dt1350 is hands down the best headphone I've ever heard. If I could get an over ear version for long listening periods I'd be set.

Well it is indicative of the Beyer house sound. Look into their full sized headphone lineup, the T70 or 90 maybe?

From what i can gather from feedback on this site none of the other Beyer models have the dt1350 sound. Some have said that T5p sounds similar.

post #622 of 815

In my opinion the T5p shares some qualities with the DT1350 (i.e. very clear and deep reaching bass) but has some differences that might spoil the experience when purchasing the T5p as some kind of fullsize DT1350: the T5p can be somewhat harsh in the treble and is overall leaner than the DT1350.

 

I have not yet had the opportunity to listen to the T70(p), opinions seem rather split between too treble-happy vs. clear but rather lean.

 

An over-ear version of the DT1350... would order immediately.

The T90 is nothing like the DT1350.  The T90 is the brightest headphone I have ever heard (bright but not sibilant).

 

The T1 and the T5p are kinda sorta like the DT1350...but not really.

I don't find the T5p harsh in the treble at all. 

 

It would be race between you and me to see who would order the circumaural DT1350 first.  :tongue:

Yes, the T90 is brighter than the DT1350 while I think it still offers stronger bass than the T5p (though I can't crosscheck at the moment as my T5p is out on loan).

 

The T1 is nearer to the DT1350 I think... but a direct comparison is rather frustrating with the T1 being... better. Much better that is. I did not expect the difference to be that big.

 

Challenge accepted ;-)

Though I have to admit I know some people at Beyerdynamic and Vienna is not as far away from Beyers hometown as San Diego (i.e. in the same timezone)...

But I guess they would build more than one in case they decide to do it so we should both be able to get one :-)

The T90 does have stronger bass than the T5p...but I'm not always looking for bass quantity.  The quality of the DT1350's bass is outstanding -- it is the best bass I've heard from any of the Beyer cans.


Haha.  You might beat me since you are in Europe...but I would be the second in line.

Alright. These phones are amazing but their comfort issues is a thorn in the flesh. Can't go past 30 minutes without hurting! I have the new facelifted version I think, bought in Jan this year.

Tried stretching them a little but I fear I might break them

Stretch them slowly and with care.   There is nothing else you can do to improve comfort.

You could try leaving them on something like a box for a day or two to stretch them

post #629 of 815

Yeah i just leave mine clamped around my desktop speakers when not in use. The speakers are roughly the width of my head so its made them a lot more comfortable. However being on ear you can never quite forget that they're on your head.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Will try them out.
