any improvment now? Mine took a long time.
I just mean try to squash the air out of the pads when on.
I realize this is an old thread but as I was reading it I just could not help but to reply.
All Beyers I have required at least 350-400 hours of break-in to show their best.
Mine sound just fine out of iPhone 5.
"I've heard the T50p too" like in "I don't own them"?
I find T50p sound better than DT990/600 Ohms that are outstanding headphones. Slightly behind T90 but with the same "Tesla" kind of sound. So this is the kind of sound you call "mediocre"?
Almost felt like it had no bass at all compared to the DT1350 and Sennheiser HD-25. I thought it was one of Beyers "miss" products, while the DT1350 was a massive hit. ... You will get significantly more bass with the DT1350 and a much better and higher quality sound than the T50P. ... I found the T50P to sound thin in general.
I can call T50p anything but thin or low on bass. Out of the box (zero hours of break-in), directly from iPhone 5, my T50p had too much bass.
After 160+ hours, the bass was tight, well controlled, and precise, mids/lows were slightly recessed compared to DT990 (although these, unlike T50p, are completely broken in). My the only complain was actually, quite the opposite - no highs...
Wow digging up a five-month old thread for the sake of disagreeing with other people's opinions. Way to go.
The burn-in thing. Not really buying it. Even so, the unit I tried (1-2 hours the first time, then borrowed to log another 10 hours, don't see how ownership will affect the sound signature any, seems mighty condescending) had probably more than a few hundred hours on them. It was old, I'm not sure why my friend didn't just sell them since he wasn't raving about them either. You do realize that burn in is a touchy subject and best to avoid absolutes right?
Again, whether you like them or not gives no right to invalidate other's opinions with a sweep of the hand.
I find them lean, that they have a treble peak, that they are not very detailed or proficient for the price. Many will attest to hearing it similarly. If you don't think so, nobody's arguing with you. Driver variance on Beyers are apparently horrible, from people who have had multiple units. So maybe you hear something completely different. Who knows. It still is no excuse to flame something that has been resolved 5 months ago.

My the only guess would be that Beyer might have changed something (I bought mine Feb 2013), or my unit was defective? I would complain about lack of higher frequencies and overwhelming bass, if anything.
Regarding burn-in, good for you; makes your life easier. My hearing is different though; I can tell a difference in sound between AudioQuest Cinnamon and Big Sur cables, so existence of headphones burn-in it not a question for me but rather something I can easily hear and accept naturally. Again, no intent to discuss nor try to change your opinion, of course.
My other headphones, T90, have just started sounding about how they should; took yet another 450+ hours. Also, I saw another thread where someone reviewed T90 (I guess out of the box) and made conclusion they were worse that DT990. Just saying
