    Thanks dude good to know,  a lot of the research I did before purchasing stated that to drive them a portable amp is recommended.  I figured I would give them a listen as is and then do a little research on an amp after buying.  I plugged them into my fiio X1 and to my ears (previously some fiio EX1 iems) they sounded great.  Also an Iphone 6s plus and LG G5 drove them to adequate listening levels.  Am i missing anything in regards to sound quality without a amp?

    Is $110 a decent deal for these from this link, or would I be able to find a lower price somewhere else?

    Does anyone here have any experience comparing the T50 with the Beyerdynamic DT250?

    First I tried several pads on the mk3 and came to the conclusion that the stock pads are the best particularly regarding the sound. The mod I recommend is to tune the inner and outer bass vents to compensate the lake of sub. You have to make it sparingly particularly the 8 inner bas vents.
    About the amp, the t50rp needs some juice, so you might benefit from an amp unless you don't listen at the same level than me :wink:

    Is the deal still showing to you...outside USA it is looking like $150 or so....

    Has anyone had any luck with treble reflectors? I've been trying some stiff felt on the back driver and it just seems to kill the bass.

    ...stick ovals of shelf liner just behind the pads on the outside of the unit...it will take the edge off the treble but the bass and mids will still fight their way through that rubbery mesh......unless you are meaning you want to raise the treble !

    just buy various thicknesses and hole size sheets till you nail it...not that expensive.

    I spent a lot of time with my new 50rps today. I was running them off a first gen x1 on near max volume it chugged a long pretty good. The sound I'm getting from there headphones is really amazing and eye opening on what I've been missing.

    Are you signed into their store?   I'm in the USA, but I noted that it had a price listed at $159.99 and then there was some small print somewhere near it that said "for a lower price, sign in", and I signed in (I've purchased from them before so I already had a login), and the price went down to $109.99....[​IMG]

    Has anyone else noticed how warm/dark these headphones are? I've been tinkering with them for a while trying to boost the mids and some treble, but it always seems to kill the bass. Has anyone else had luck?
     
  13. marcan
    Which model? mk3?
     
  14. paulmazz
    T40s but I've been replaced the plastic over the vents with different kinds to felt to mimic the t50s
     
  15. marcan
