[size=10pt]IFA 2011 highlight: T 50 p Manufaktur[/size]
 
Beauty to be worn: beyerdynamic provides the “mobile headphones of the year” with a Manufaktur edition of extravagant design.
 

 
[size=10pt]What do the glove-like softness of buckskin, elegant stainless steel and the exclusive natural material of Nanai have in common? Combined they become headphones that touch all the senses. Both the look and the feel of the new T 50 p Manufaktur from beyerdynamic are unique. So unique that each model is one of a kind: the Heilbronn-based audio specialist produces the mobile headphones customized to customer order in the in-house headphone manufacturing plant.[/size]
 
[size=10pt][/size]
 
[size=10pt]In the process, there is a wide selection of colour and material combinations to choose from. Ear cups in trendy colours from cream-white to mauve and brown to olive green can be combined with leather covers on the headbands and the ear conches. Perforated buckskin, for example, is a reminder of times when automobile drivers still wore racing gloves and lends the headphones a charming retro-look. Those who like it more extravagant choose the salmon leather model: the exclusive material Nanai is also used in the fashion industry and stands out due to its characteristic structure. Its production was developed centuries ago by the East Siberian Nanai people and until today works in harmony with nature: salmon leather is 100 percent chromium-free tanned and free from allergens.[/size]
 
[size=10pt][/size]
 
[size=10pt]As of September, sound aesthetes can configure and order their desired models online (http://www.beyerdynamic.com/manufaktur). The tried-and-true Tesla Technology from beyerdynamic ensures acoustic quality. With its high level of efficiency, it even helps low-output MP3 players such as the iPhone or iPad achieve higher volumes and an amazing richness of details. There’s a good reason why the T 50 p series version was honoured with the sought-after EISA Award last year as European mobile headphones of the year 2010/2011. Like these headphones, the Manufaktur version is also manufactured by hand in Heilbronn. The T 50 p Manufaktur is “Made in Germany” to the core. [/size]
 
[size=10pt][/size]
 
[size=10pt]The T 50 p Manufaktur headphones will be displayed for the first time at the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) in Berlin from 2 to 7 September 2011, Hall 1.2, Stand 115.[/size]
 
[size=10pt]Hope you can come to Germany and visit us![/size]

Ugh that looks hideous! The normal version looked far better IMO.  I hope this gets the t50p more love, though. t50p was much maligned here on HeadFi.

well hopefully the 1350's get the same treatment, but yea some of them look pretty ghastly. The t50p IMO didnt sound that great.

Looks like someone is shedding skin... :/ May want to go back to the drawing boards with those.

I think they look really nice, if I had the money I'd try them out for sure.

I'm gonna agree, I don't think they look too great. The originals look better IMHO.

Some of them look better than others, that's for sure. If the DT 1350 got this treatment, I'd be all over it.

They don't look like what I define as 'pretty', but I really like contrast between the smooth steel and the scaly leather. And IMO it's really hard to pull off a good contrast. I think 'classy' is the keyword here.

Wonder how many different combinations there will be... maybe I don't want them to offer this with the DT 1350s, after all. I'd never be able to decide...
