    interesting, some people like the bass on the other hand. do you mind explaining a bit more in detail about what's lacking in the bass region ?
  2. Rowethren
    I personally found the cable horrendously stiff and replaced it ASAP!

    To throw my 2p worth in. I find the bass to be thin when I first put this on my head, but after a short while (15 minutes or so) the overall sound gets fuller and develops nicely. Is that because of the brain-burn-in effect or the supplied pads deforming to my head and sealing better, I'm not sure. The T5p Gen 2 has never instantly grabbed me for the first few minutes, but after that it envelops my ears with it's smooth velvety sound. :)

    glad to hear that. appreciate your opinion, thanks.

    A pure OCC cable is needed here. Not for Quality but for handling!
    T5P was my ref. till I heard the TH900 SB. T5p is still hee, not as the reference though.

    Am I alone in loving both T1 and the T5?

    I am joining the club next week. I bought a used set and they are on their way. Pretty excited about this. I am trying to sell my Sony Z7's and hoping these will replace them as my top-dog closed back. I have never even heard a Beyerdynamic, so my fingers are crossed!:)

    I got my wife T5p for Christmas and she’s non stop playing it.

    At night we take turns introducing music with the Chord Mojo (2 inputs) and the T5s.

    I love the T1 but admit it’s nice to be able to use a closed headphone and not disturb others. She can bring T5 to work too.

    Anybody running these out of a Sony DAP? I have a ZX-300 and wondering if anybody else is running this combo.

    I do, SE and balanced, sounds great to me, brings out the best of the headphone and ZX-300. Let me know if you want more specifics.
  14. Shane D
    Thanks for the reply! Are you using high gain in balanced? Are you EQing them at all?

    What kind of music are you playing? I do rock/pop and horn jazz. I can't wait to get them.

    High gain yes, but its probably not required, no EQ for me, just direct mode.

    I listen to a very wide range of genres of music, but mostly rock/pop too. When I first put them on I allow a few minutes for the sound to fully stabilise, this seems to be a feature of the standard pads. I think its the foam fully adapting to my head and ears, this can happen with any pads but for the T5p 2 pads it seems to me to be more pronounced.
