Sadly my the left driver on my dt1350's started to crackle on bass heavy tracks and they also developed some kind of a channel imbalance as the right side driver is now clearly louder. Contacted amazon and amazingly they immediately sent me out a replacement pair and are paying the return shipping costs for my faulty ones! Hopefully the new pair sound just as good as my old pair did :D

Wow - and you've had them for a few months? That's amazing. Good for you amazon!

Yeh i've had them just over 3 months so i was pleasantly surprised by amazons response!

 

Update : Got my replacement pair in the mail today and surprisingly they've sent me the facelift model! Straight out of the box i can clearly tell something was way off with my old pair as these new ones sound even more amazing plugged into my a200p. I'm not too sure if its the new pads on them but the bass seems more prominent while still retaining its wonderful extension and definition. Mids and highs sound fantastic with great clarity and balance so it seems the new pads are an excellent upgrade. I also noticed the headband has a lot less clamping force, out of the box these ones are almost perfect where as my old ones required a few days of gradual stretching to get them right.

Overall i'm very impressed with the facelift version :D!

Hi everyone, 

 

After reading through pages in this thread, I decided to pull the trigger through Amazon (Canadian website) but they only the old version of these headphones. I immediately sent them back and got my refund.

 

I would like to ask you guys :

 

1/ I'm in Canada so where is the best place to order the DT 1350 (facelift) ? Should I go with the straight or coiled cable ?

 

2/ If I'm order from the US, how much tax and duty that I have to pay ? 

 

If someone is also from Canada can answer these questions, I'd really appreciate.

 

Thanks.

If you got them from Seth's, they may have been the facelift version. One of the facelift versions has cups that look like the original, but everything else is facelift (pads, headband etc).

I ordered twice from Seth and it is fullfilled by Amazon. Actually it was Amazon who advised me to place the second order to see if I could get the facelift version. But it turned out both are the same old ones.

I got mine from Seth's as well:

 

 

I was concerned that they weren't the facelifts, but apparently they are. 

 

But, the ones you got might have been different.

an easy way to be sure to get the facelift version would be to order it with coiled cable: that version did not exist before the facelift version...

 

nevertheless I'd rather get the straight cable for mobile use as it might be a bit lighter and won't jump up and down while walking. coiled cables are nice for DJing and studio work though.

Just bought a used non-facelift dt1350 to use at work. I'm really impressed with just how much sound it blocks out. I am pretty sure this makes my old V6 obsolete. On first impression, I was thrown off by how these don't sound too much like closed headphones to my ears. Maybe I'm not getting the proper seal, I don't know? But I'm liking my first couple hours with em.

In retrospect, I think I should have bought the facelift version, but I'm a sucker for things that are no longer made... Any thoughts on velour earpads versus the t51p pads?

Just joined the DT1350 owners club - my local pro music store was doing a stupid discount on brand new pre facelift versions and I got them for 200 Franks (around $200) down from 389. I've always been curious about these as I'm HD25 owner and at that price is was an impulse buy.

It's kind of funny reading the comments in a lot of places saying that the DT1350 have less bass than the HD25 as I find the opposite to be true, plus the DT1350 certainly have a bit more vibrancy and punch to the bass. It's also certainly fuller sounding in the midrange than the HD25, and not as neutral, but certainly seem to make for an exciting listen. I was also expecting them to be quieter than the HD25s for given volume level given the slightly higher impedance (80 v 70 ohms) and the lower sensitivity (109 v 120dB) but I found no significant difference in volume and my iPhone and iPod drive them well.

This is just based on a couple of minutes doing a bit of ABCing between the HD25s, the disappointing Momentums, and the DT1350. Time will tell if they unseat my current portable champion - the HD25, and I'll start listening in earnest in about 15 mins while I'm on the way to the pub :-)

Oh, and a quick question - any specifics on burn-in time? To be honest my jury is out on whether burn-in is as effective with HPs as it is with speakers, but I keep my mind open and will take onboard any suggestions you guys may have.

Looks like they made a great first impression! I'm having the "lack of bass problem" that you mentioned due to not getting a perfect seal. I am still trying to decide if I should buy the velour ear pads or the t51p pads. So far I'm leaning towards the t51p pads since the Facelift version comes with these and so few have commented on the veloura.

I personally love the sound of these headphones for really two reasons... Sound isolation and how natural they sound for closed cans. Similar Sennheiser options that I've tried just sound a bit hollow to my ears.

I think the biggest adjustment you'll notice is with the pads loosening up and creating a better seal on your ears.  So, don't worry about burn-in.  Just wear them, enjoy them, and let the earpads do their thing...
