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.
The sound quality is surprisingly good given how cheap and flimsy they look. Well done, Beyerdynamic, the bass extension is solid and there's a decent mid range with somewhat rolled off treble.
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 what I like. I’ve a been a music-lover all my life and in recent years, a budget computer audiophile.
Why The DTX 501 P?
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.
I used to have the Sennheiser px200 for a similar purpose when I rode the subway, and I remember it doing a nice job.
I wasn't too keen to stick IEMs into my ears, so I looked for a portable, closed headphone.
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.
i got them for a few months but didn't really pay attention...with my full intention to get something as travel backup.
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: I'm a big fan of Beyerdynamic heaphones. I own a pair of DT880's for home listening and I was after a relatively cheap (but decent) pair of portables. The headphones produce a very clear sound with just the right amount of bass - enough to make music sound fun, but not too much so that it dominates. They work work with many different styles of music. They are also comfortable, although my ears can get a bit warm after prolonged use.
Beyerdynamic DTX501p Stereo Headphone review by Dale

Summary: Sources: iPhone5, iPhone5 with PA2V2/FiiO E07k/Decware Zen Head amps using the LOD, various computers using the Microstreamer and Beyerdynamic A200p DAC/amps. Review notes: My first impressions of the sound of the DTX501p are based on direct comparisons to other headphones - in particular the FAD Pandora VI, v-moda M100, Beyerdynamic DT1350 and T51p, Yamaha MT220, B&O H6, B&W P7, and notes I've accumulated from many prior reviews.
Summary: Phew!Tried many different' recommended' headphones (akg 451 eg) and these were the last ones ,put them on instantly liked them,.Totally agree with other users excellent sound and comfort .... keeping them!, worth the extra money 5 stars. ----Update. Unfortunately they are 32ohms which means they are not really suitable for phones etc,because of lack of volume, disappointing.
Summary: Preface: Beyerdynamic is an iconic well-established brand that is not only a music industry icon for innovation and design efficiency, but also one that is highly regarded for many for their understanding the users needs and transforming this into a perfectly executed package. It is indeed no personal fact that I have professionally relied upon Beyerdynamic products for the duration of my career where they have never let me down under the premise of compromised build...
