  • Summary: This is still my favorite headphone, when something else impresses me beyond this then I'll upgrade.   When I compared this to my Audio Technica A2000X, the A2x sounded thin and delicate, the T5p had more life, it sounds alive, the T1 is smoky and refined, STAX has a different sound, transparent.
  • Pros: Everything
  • Cons: Not very portable

  • Summary: I've been looking for a over ear closed back headphones that I could wear anywhere for a while. My Bose QC15 is great when I take a plane or train (good noise cancellation, very comfortable), but the sound quality is rubbish.
  • Pros: details, build quality, dynamic

  • Summary: Deal or No Deal - that's the first thing that went through my mind when I took out the aluminum case T5p came in. Apparently at $1,399 its a BIG DEAL. This is a high class Audiophile Quality headphones designed FOR use with mobile devices!
  • Pros: great sound (details!!!), luxurious design (real leather earpads and headband), driven straight from your smartphone
  • Cons: non-detachable cables, lack of bass quantity

  • Summary: I'm writing this comment long after the T5p was released, and have owned them since 2011. I leave them at work and use them almost every day, running through a Schiit DAC and amp, with an iPod nano (digital out through a dock) playing everything between 256kbps AAC and 24/48 Apple Lossless files.
  • Pros: Sound quality, bass level, isolation
  • Cons: Cost, perhaps..? Well worth the price, however.

  • Summary: Introduction:    I have been researching closed-back portable headphones for a couple of years, off and on. I sometimes have to drive a few hours to see family or travel to events, and I've found that the better the music I listen to, the more likely I am to remain awake at the wheel.
  • Pros: Clarity; comfort; detailed sound; build quality; looks; versatility; fun factor of sound; etc.
  • Cons: Less-than-ample bass; price; non-detachable cable; isolation could be better.

  • Summary: I bought these after someone described them as his "desert island headphones" in the annual Head-Fi Gift Guide about 2 years ago. I was looking for something to wear at my desk in an open office environment, which meant that I needed something closed-back to block out external noise (and to keep my...
  • Pros: Supremely comfortable, good isolation, exceptional bass
  • Cons: Expensive, too bulky/fragile to use on-the-go

Review: Beyerdynamic T5p

Wired
11 January 2012
  • Excerpt: My normal process for reviewing audio gear is about a two-week routine: Listen to a wide range of music, take notes along the way, and then bang out a pithy review. When I put the Beyerdynamic T5p headphones on, I knew that the normal routine wouldn’t suffice.
  • Pros: In a class of its own for portable cans. Build quality is top notch — these will be durable for decades, not just years. 32 ohms of impedance makes them plenty loud on portable rigs, so there’s no need for a headphone amp.
  • Cons: Errrrm, uh, the carrying case isn’t gold-plated?

  • Conclusion: The T5ps deliver great sound while also being suitably portable – we’re impressed
  • Pros: Dynamic and good timing, a decently open, lively sound: good build, portable
  • Cons: The closed-back design takes away some edge and transparency
