Yes, it is. It definitely looks more classy than the 1st and 2nd Generation models.
that's a matter of taste. I like the gen2 style more

I agree. I prefer the grills on the earlier version but let's see how they sound.

"Clear and authentic sound" is the description of signature. Usually Beyer are fairly accurate with their wording, so this is promising if "clear and authentic sound" means linear and neutral.

Beyerdynamic surely knows how to develop greater sound and headphones. I have no doubt on the 3rd. It's been like 3-4 months ago since I was excited to get some new headphone.

I agree. There's something special about the 2nd gen T5 that really stayed with me. Outstanding imaging and timbre. Look forward to seeing and hearing the new version.

Oh, heck. I was ready to pounce on the WP900, actually; however, the imminent release of the T5p (3rd Gen) has thrown a spanner into the works. I'll probably wait for this to be released before making a decision. I really like the 2nd Generation T5p - it's one of my most-used headphones.

The highs are also silky smooth and yet the treble are so very clear too.

If you are really happy with your 2nd gen, why buy this new version? It will be expensive at first and you might not like some of the changes (if any) that they made to the signature.

Nah, I understand Malevolent. For example, I own Amiron Home and Amiron Wireless. They each sounds very different despite the same name. Both are damn amazing. We'll never know for sure how the T5 sounds unless we MUST. TEAR. OUR. WALLET. APART!

The 3rd generation looks a cheaper compared to 2nd gen. The metal cut of the T5p is missing. The outside of the cup seems to be a print not a pattern anymore.

I'm a fan of the 2nd generation, but it requires a lot of effort to make it work. The stock pads are absolute uncomfortable disaster.
