The Beyerdynamic Tesla DT 1350 Fan Club - Page 44

post #646 of 800

First impressions, the facelift version is quite comfortable and the straight cable is thin and portable. It is not a show off unlike my bigger and coiled cable M50. I like the quality of sound and the sound is much clearer especially the bass when compared to M50. I'm happy for this and it'll  be my primary cans when outside. M50 will just stay at home.

 

BTW, I've questions:

 

1. Do I need an amp and what are the reasons? Or it will just destroy my hearing :) I mainly use it on commuting. 

2. If needed, any suggestions for an amp, I want portability (I'll put my lg g2 and the amp in my tight pocket) and long battery, and of course, the sound quality.

3. Is it better to have a separate player for sound quality vs. mg lg g2 (32gb+64gb ext. card)? Any suggestions on model/brand?

 

Thanks.

While I would still not start my impressions of the DT1350 with a mention on their comfort (which, to me, is still not really good, but acceptable), I'm happy to hear you like them. Just listened to them at home today, still a fascinating headphone, especially given its size.

 

I can only comment on the iPhone 5s, which drives the DT1350 quite acceptably. It does win if used with an HP-P1 or, as right now, an HP-P1 as a DAC plus the HP-V1 as an amp. Still I would never consider that configuration for mobile use: its just too inconvenient and the refinement in sound quality is easily lost to traffic around me, the noise of the subway etc. They are quite sensitive and isolate really well, so for mobile use I don't think an amp is necessary.

 

If you want a compact solution take a look at the Beyerdynamic A200p, which, besides iDevices, supports a range of Androids as well as Macs and PCs, is compact, relatively cheap and lasts for about 11h per charge.

Not that new anymore... as far as I remember the tuning is the same (uses the same driver) according to Beyerdynamic, but they are built to be used for audiometry, i.e. clear labeling of left/right, open ended cable (i.e. comes without connector and only in wholesale packaging).

Does anybody know the exact dimensions of the driver by any chance? I don't want to take mine apart and had the question pop up in a discussion about mods...

From what i've read its a 30mm driver which sounds about right when you measure the driver housing.

Like most headphones they will sound better with an amp but imo they sound just fine when used directly from a modern day smartphone. If you want to travel light plugging them straight into your LG G2 will work fine.

A dedicated music player will sound better but its also one more thing you have to carry around so it will come down to whats more important to you. Something like the iBasso DX50 is a good option.

Just listen to them, enjoy, and let the burn-in take care of itself.

Anything that detracts from the DT1350 sound is a bad thing.

From what I hear they only make them sound worse

post #657 of 800

...I mean - this are the same pads which were on the non facelift DT-1350 - or am I wrong?

 

When the facelift DT 1350 was out with the bigger pads a lot of people wanted to change their non-facelift version with the bigger one.

 

Now the T51p came out with the old originalDT1350 pads and the people want to change their DT 1350 the other way around...

 

...somehow funny, isn't it?

Exactly that. The pads do need some time to get a bit softer (providing better seal), with my usage pattern it was about 2 weeks (I bought the bigger pads for my original DT1350, and again it took me about 2 weeks to get the necessary seal to hear their phenomenal bass).

The pads are quite different actually, the T51 pads being much softer than both the original and the wider DT1350 pads used with the facelift version and available as an accessory for the original DT1350 (as noted above I have both pads as well as a T51p).

 

Yes, the T51p is more comfortable (by quite a margin), it has both much softer pads and less clamping force. Don't know how good the softer pads would work given the DT1350s tighter grip (contact pressure 2.5N vs. 5.5N according to Beyerdynamic).

Hi plakat! I've had the T51P's for about a week. Incredibly comfortable (especially compared to my Mikros 90's), and they sound rather gorgeous. I am though now intrigued (or re-intrigued) with the DT1350's, and especially how they sound compared to the T51P's. If you have any insights (or links to insights) that might save me some time, then I'm all ears. Thanks!
