Absolutely. The H6's are more "dead" neutral, but next to the P7s, the HP50s are more neutral yes to my ears.

I like the way the PSB look, there I said it.  But then again I am all about function over form.  Actually I could care less about how they look because I would never be using a full sized over the ear outside these days.  That's why iems were invented.

 

The great thing about the huge width of the PSB is that it allows for the cups to be parallel to the wearers ears.  And you can maintain that while adjusting up and down for where your ears are on the side of your head.

 

Contrast that to the Momentum, Amperiors, and many others which tilt in at the top of the ear and cause a bit more pressure there.  They remind me a lot of the Shure 840s which also have a wide band, although they sound better than the Shures.

Do you prefer the HP50 to the P7? I found the HP50 to be an overall slightly more neutral (less "U-shaped") headphone than the P7 but not as refined sounding. Also less comfy, shallow earpads.

Subbed. Would be great if you elaborate between the P7 vs HP50 vs H6.

So far I think I am with regards to how they sound. I agree with your sentiments on the neutrality of the HP50s, but the P7s are still very special headphones. Build wise, the B&W's are a work of art, but for comfort on my head, I prefer the HP50s. The memory foam on them is a bit better for longer term listening sessions.

Planning on updating my initial post with four new headphones: P7s, HP50s, H6s and DNA Pros. I'm working on that now, but it will likely take a week or so to complete (you know trying to fit it in with a wife, 2 kids and work :smile:).

I sure don't know how everyone is hearing a "U-shaped" signature with the P7......vocals and other things midrangy are right there where they should be, not distant at all. I don't see a drooped midrange on the graph either.

You needn't be leery with the T51P ;) They are as comfy as the M500....

Good to know. Looks like beyer fixed the comfort issue with the DT1350.

The T51P was the most comfortable on ear I've tried...in the Sennhesier/Beyer style. I've given up on On-Ears; I love the isolation but they're always painful after about 15 minutes. I think I've figured out which part of my ear hurts; or maybe its the ear/glasses combo...I'm not sure. But the T51P was def the best of the DT1350, Amperior, HD25 lot. Fwiw, I found the M500 more comfortable.

SQ wise?

It had a pleasant "do no wrong" quality that was fairly neutral. Bass, mids and treble were all satisfying without any one aspect calling much attention to itself. Likewise, it wasn't so detailed that any one part of the frequency was demanding attention. It was easy to drive and actually portable in its case. I think its a really good evolution of the On-Ear for those who want a comfortable on-ear that is refined enough to keep the audiophile happy. Beyerdynamic went the right direction with this on-ear...as compared to, imo, what Sennheiser did with the Momentum On Ear.
