Summary: Hi. I've been looking everywhere for reviews for the new T51p and couldn't find much out there. So got them anyway and thought I'd share my thoughts. I have with me the T51p, B&W P3, Momentum on ear and Momentum over ear. First, I am going to discount the P3.
Pros: Superb headphones with balanced sound and good PRAT
Cons: Cable is a little annoying and it's not the best looking
Summary: I would like to acknowledge that I'm actually reviewing T51i model of these headphones - identical to T51p with addition of in-line remote/mic. I received these for review purpose from Beyerdynamic, and these should be available for sale any day now (considering this review was written on 4/21).
Pros: high quality sound, excellent bass performance, solid build, very comfortable fitment, in-line remote/mic
Cons: no detachable cables, slightly recessed mids
Summary: These are the best portable headphones I have ever had the pleasure of owning. From the first time I put them on I knew I had invested in the right pair of cans. There are a few areas where Beyerdynamic could improve though.
Sturdy metal body, held together by cheap plastic.

Summary: I absolutely adore the sound of these headphones, however the cheap black plastic clip that holds the adjustable plate to the headband just broke... I hadn't even noticed it was plastic until this happened. I was simply adjusting it down on my head and it came apart... no excessive force was used.
Summary: Ok headphones, and whilst quality is near the B&W P5 headphones, these are definitely less transparent and more 'coloured' (define mid tone boost). Quality is mediocre, and aluminium end cap fell off when received....just a ring of double sided sellotape holding it on!
