The Beyerdynamic Tesla DT 1350 Impressions thread - Page 48

post #706 of 1199

Completely unrelated, but I heard the 1350s hooked up to a Schiit Valhalla a couple of weeks ago.  It sounded FANTASTIC.

I just completed a ODA amp, which is a desktop version of the O2 amp, it has 2 parallel headphone jacks and I am able to quickly compare 2 sets of cans within seconds.

 

Been listening to Beyer T90s's and then compared to DT1350's, which I own both...

 

Its amazing after listening to the T90s how closed in and small the 1350's feel or sound.

 

But as you get farther away in time with the 1350s they seem to open up more and more, this may be a psychoacoustic thing with your brain etc...

 

But the bass on the 1350s is really something special etc....

 

I like both cans very much abd would not part with either one..

Comparing the DT1350, which I like very much as a portable headphone, to my T1 was one of the worst things one could do to its reputation in my eyes... Even given the price difference I had not expected this difference in sound. So yes, the DT1350 is still far away from desktop class, nevertheless its very good at what its intended for.

I agree, they are really very special in there own right....a bit more efficient that the T90's and yes its not a real fair comparison but a comparison non-the-less.

 

I had the 1350s first and liked the sound so well I contacted Beyer and asked them to recommend a Beyer headphone that would have a wider more open soundstage but have the same bass...

 

They recommended the DT880's and DT770's...but I decided to up the ante and get the T90s.....they too are very special to me and are an excellent headphone.

The T90 is a nice complimentary headphone as its over-ear, home, open... I like its sound very much, especially its airy presentation. Have to admit that I actually own two T90, standard and Jubilee...

post #711 of 1199

Ha!!

 

Nice, after going thru many headphones including Audeze, Grado, AKG etc Beyer has won me over at the moment!

I've long ignored Beyers as I considered them to prone of sibilance. Purchased the DT1350 nevertheless, blind, to be honest, and was positively surprised. Very much so... and therefore began inquiring the other models. My taste may have changed over the years, but whatever may be the reason I really love the sound of many of their models, especially in the Tesla series. And I have to say that they pair very well with the Beyer amps (as should be expected of course).

A friend of mine also asked them for a recommendation and they mentioned the DT990 as well. Interesting that they don't go all out and recommend a T1, but are quite sensible to the customers needs and budget obviously. Nevertheless I think the step up to the T90 is worth it...

How glasses friendly are the dt1350's?  I've a pair of hd25-II's that I like but just can't use them with glasses.  I listen to music mainly at work and don't always want to wear iems.  I've tried bw p5 and hd25's with little luck.

 

Thanks

Yeh I found it quite amazing too. When I switch directly from my 7520s to my 1350s I find they sound congested and closed in and generally awful. After a while though I really start to enjoy them and don't want to switch back to my sonys lol.

I find them triple the comfort as compared to the HD25-1s I had. Three times because I can wear them to about 3-4 hours before I need to give my ears a break. For all day wearing, like when I am in a busy office, Westone IEMs is still my go-to solution. They can be in my ears for 8 hours straight.

Note that you need to "break them in" and they will feel amazing. The HD25s are almost impossible to break in at all... for the last 9 years or so since I owned them... so the DT1350s replaced the HD25-1. Thanks to the recommendations from the folks here. I am a happy user now. Also, everyone have a different shape and size, so try the demo (usually quite well run in now) and see how that feels on your head. I almost don't feel them now. You have to try with different positioning. (1) for fit (2) for the best sound. They can get pretty bad sounding "off axis".

I have them but they are not glasses friendly to me...

Sadly I'm unable to enjoy the 1350 due to it's poor comfort and fit for me. Anybody can recommend something similar with maybe a bit more bass and treble.
As through my analysis of them their treble is indeed a little shelved for an inoffensive sound while the bass is really flat but I prefer a little
Bloom for some of my electronic music and also some oomph for my classical tracks.

Looking to switch to IEMs now any recommendations? It's sad to see them go, great headphone indeed.

Have you considered the t51p's?
post #719 of 1199

@myap2328 I concur with waynes world, T51p sounds like a good match for your preferences. Comfort is way better, midbass slightly elevated.

post #720 of 1199
Thanks all for your replies. I think I am done with headphones haha. Looking at IEMs now. Any with similar tonality?
