Conclusion: I got these for traveling. I wanted a pair of quality phones with decent isolation that were light and compact and not so expensive that losing them would be a crisis. I couldn't be happier with them.
Summary: Having suffered using various IEMs, I finally decided to try these light, portable headphones as an alternative and I'm so happy I did!
These phones are incredibly light with little clamping pressure, which makes them very comfortable for extended listening sessions.
Summary: Hello Head-Fiers,
Before I get into my review of the Beyerdyamic DTX 501 p I’ll tell you a bit about myself and where I’m coming from. I’m a newbie to this site and I’m far from calling myself an expert in these matters but I have listened to a lot of headphones and speakers recently and I know...
Pros: Sturdy Case Included, Balanced, Bass, Clear Vocals/Highs, no sound leakage
Cons: Distortion at High Volumes, Slightly fragile feeling, Plain Style, Moderate Sound Isolation
Summary: Headphone inventory:
Current: Sennheiser HD580, Alessandro MS1
Past: Sennheiser px200, Koss KSC75
I've recently moved cities/job, and have started walking 30minutes to commute through a busy city centre.
Pros: Decent bass for the size, very comfortable, nice isolation, folding design.
Cons: Slightly rolled off highs. Closed in, minimal soundstage
Summary: This is my first review after lurking around many years on headfi. I decided to write this mainly because I am somehow surprised these go a bit underappreciated on head-fi. But I also understand that because I did not appreciate them enough when i got them.
Pros: Very musical sound; great bass;
Cons: Not comfortable for long sessions caused by unreasonable design; Some might find the sound too "heavy", not fun.
Summary: This is my first review on head-fi and this is only my second week on having this pair, but I'll try to cover as much as I can. I am a newbie on this stuff (not planning to be audiophile) and also I hail from being a fan of Audio-Technica (I have ATH-SJ55 and love it), so you know my position.
Pros: VERY fun sounding yet still detailed, sweet mid, solid and punchy bass when needed, comfortable earpads, housing looks cool enough
Cons: Earpads may be too shallow/thin, could use more power in highs, looks cheap, funny design, asymmetrical clamp
Summary: Let's face it, you don't always want to take your best headphone equipment with you when you're out on the street. Sometimes you need a cheapish pair where it won't be a disaster if they're lost, stolen or damaged. I'm thinking particularly if you're going out to bars and clubs.
Summary: Warm but dark and a bit veiled sound. On the quiet side (a bit quieter than AKG 430). 2K and 4K frequencies are a bit sacrificed so voices are a bit muted and shady. Mine suggestion is to boost the 1K band with +1 dB, 2K with +2 dB, 4K with +2 dB and the 8K band with +1 dB.
Pros: Warm sound, decent soundstage for a closed design, good bass, long and thick cable, very good sound isolation, very comfortable, nice solid case.
Cons: Treble rolled off, mids recessed, veiled sound if not properly driven, sound leak, need proper positioning on ears, no remote control, fixed cable.
Summary: The DTX501p has very good bass like a larger headphone, it has rolled off highs that can be mostly compensated with simple EQ, and it has some uneven response between 1 khz and 3.5 khz - 2 significant peaks and one significant recession.
