Beyerdynamic 1350 vs Sennheiser Amperior

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I have big dilemma between those 2 headphones,

I hear music like metal,rock,country,classic (mainly Metal)  and i have seen this review:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aahpv0_DDFE

 

that say the hd25 1-ii is more for pop-rock,electro so i pass it and planned to buy the dt1350,  and now I've seen Sennheiser  relesed the amperior better version for the hd25 1-ii,

 

now the dilemma is: what better for me, for what I hear  (the Amperior as chage from the hd25 1-ii in the music style part?)

(I would like good bass and to fit my style of music)

Up, (its important I need to decide soon )

post #3 of 12

I have no experience with the HD25-1 Mark II or the new Amperior, but I do own a pair of Beyerdynamic DT1350's and I can say that based on extensive research and comparative reading between them and the HD25 a few months back led me to choose the DT1350.  I also wanted to note that I have similar tastes in music (metal, rock, punk, folk, some electronic, classic) so it was hard to find an 'all in one' answer.  The DT1350 sounded good out of the box, but it wasn't until after a good 100 hours or so of playback that they began to shine (like most cans).  I personally think they handle most genres very well.  I can refer you to this review, as it helped me ultimately decide:

Also, I'd like to note that while they sound incredible, they are a bit tight (as you may read about most supra-aural style headphones) and if you wear glasses, they will put pressure on  your temples.  It's because of this that I am looking to part ways with them and consider IEMs.  I'd say as long as you don't wear them with glasses, they are perfect - if you wear glasses and travel (like myself) you may consider something else.  If you find you are interested in the DT1350's, let me know.  I don't have them on the sale forum yet, but was planning on putting them up this weekend.

 

Hope this helps!

Thank you for replayng :),

what you think on the comfort (I forgot to add that im planning to buy for long use)?

 

can anyone please answer what music fit the amperior (like the hd25  that was fit to electro-pop rock) or they change it?

and how to bass of the amperior compare to the dt1350?

I prefer the Amperior comfort-wise. They dont clamp on the headband as much, thus not making a mess out of my hair :D

U need a very good seal to make the dt1350 really sound good, the amperior is far more forgiving on this point.

for more serious listener(jazz,accoustics) the dt1350 is the better choise with the more mid-centric sounding.

Bass quantity is about the same, i would say. again, it depends on the seal with the dt1350.

i feel like the bass of the dt1350 goes lower, the amperior has a strong kickbass.

 

both headphones are great, but for me the amperior wins.

the uncomplicated seal paired with the more fun-sounding signature were the deciding factor.

I owned both and compared them on all genres. Overall, I agree, they are both good in their own way, but the Amperiors reproduced the timbre of instruments much more accurately. The 1350s reproduced voices better. 

 

The sparkle in the highs and the timbre and flat out liveliness made the Amperiors come out on top. That being said, it can be a bit aggressive in the bass and upper midrange which was a bit fatiguing where the 1350s could be listened to without fatigue if it weren't for the clamping pain. The Amperiors were much more comfortable.

 

The choice is not easy, so hearing both is best, but for me, the Amperiors came out on top.

Oh, back on track. They both sound good on metal, but I think the Amperior would work better because it's more lively and has more crunch to it IMHO

No problem!

 

A redesigned aluminum housing which reduces sound loading... essentially cleaning up the sound of the HD25. You can read more about it here
