  • 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. Can be driven loud (given a proper amplification) since it has a very low distortion.
  • 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. It's the most comfortable on-ear I've used, comes with an ideal small carrycase, and has a decent single-sided non-detachable cord. Build is just average, but it looks good enough to last if not abused.

Amazing headphones but broke after 3 months of normal use..

  • Summary: Until they broke I loved those headphones, super comfortable, great sound, fit nicely on the head, great sound isolation, love beyerdynamic. However after 3 month of normal use, using it during commute everyday, the cable just came out of the headphones like knife through butter. I didn't get it, it just came out, leaving the white and red cables bare... I think they're amazing build apart from that cable. And I didn't do anything wrong.

A bit bland

  • Summary: With Bayer's reputation for professional audio products and after reading so many glowing reports I opted for this pair for use on the go. I'm afraid I was disappointed, I gave them a good go (40hrs) but they sounded, and remained, just a little dull. I took them along to my local Richer Sounds where I chose 3 pairs of other headphones to compare in the hi-fi / AV listening room.

Endnote: Befriedigend

  • Summary: Ich war auf der Suche nach einem portablen Kopfhörer und habe mir daraufhin den beyerdynamic DTX 501 p gekauft. Seit einem Monat höre ich mich bereits mit dem DTX 501 p - vorwiegend in Bus und Straßenbahn, aber auch im Auto – durch verschiedene Genres. Betrieben habe ich den Kopfhörer, zumeist mit einem Samsung Galaxy Note, ohne KHV und der Android-App Poweramp in Vollversion.

Licht und Schatten

  • Summary: Für längere Bahnfahrten war ich auf der Suche nach einem Kopfhörer zum Betrieb mit dem Smartphone. Nachdem ich mit einem In-Ear-Kopfhörer nicht glücklich geworden war (das Teil erwies sich als haltlos), habe ich mich nach Recherche im Internet für den Beyerdynamic DTX 501p entschieden. Für den sicherlich stolzen Preis von 79 EUR hatte ich deutsche Wertarbeit erwartet. Auf der Innenseite des Kopfbügels ist jedoch verschämt "Made in China" angegeben.
