Comparisons: 21 of the Top Closed/Portable Headphones Around - Page 55

post #811 of 2453
OK, so there a a new portable that must be added to this shootout. Beyer t51p. Apparently much improved comfort and sound (if that's possible) over dt1350.
Few more details/impressions over in this thread http://www.head-fi.org/t/669824/upcoming-beyerdynamic-headphones-custom-one-tesla-custom-one-studio-t51p-and-amp-a20/135

after few weeks of head time with the M500...i really wish they had a bit more clamping force...:/
post #813 of 2453
Yoy can really easily tighten it.
post #814 of 2453
How do you do that?
post #815 of 2453
Kinda squeez the headband. Bring the two ends of the headband really close and keep them there for a bit

The headband won't break, it's made fo some very flexible material. Frankly, I doubt you'll be able to tighten it because of the material it's made of. At a hifi store one of the employees demonstrated the flexibility of the headband by twisting the headband in the most messed up ways (actually made me cringe), so I wouldn't worry about breaking it :)

It wont break. You can also really easily loosen the clamp too.

It's also too loose for me but I found a way to solve the issue. Instead of bending the headband, I did a "snug fit" thing, which gives me a good seal (relatively) and nice fit due to friction.

****, my nearest hi-fi store just sold out their last P7s. I asked them to hold a pair for me when they receive a new order next week. You people are making me poor ;)

I really wish the P7 was more around the $300 level. I may have to wait.

how do you do the snug fit?

There's a kid in town...the NAD VISO HP50.

For those of you familiar with Tyll over at Innerfidelity, here is his opinion on them: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/i-love-these-headphonesthe-nad-viso-hp50

On the strength of this review, i went to my local Apple Store and demo'd a pair and needless to say was blown away by them, Tyll was bang on the money. They were purchased without hesitation.

Sorry for being unclear. Here's what I do: Put the headphones on with the headband further back (i.e., at the back of my head), then twist the headphones upward to bring the headband back to the top of my head. The friction created between the earpads and your ears should make the headphones stay better.

 

It's kind of like how you make a loose ring fits snug.

 

Hope it helps!

Yeah the hp50 does look good. $300 seems reasonable.
