Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"Matched with Icon Audio tube amplifier with NOS tubes and it is as good as it gets."
_
"The Beyerdynamic T1 Tesla Audiophile Stereo Headphone have earned a spot on BoldList's Top 5 Beyerdynamic Headphones list with pros like:- Impedance 600 ohm for High End and Home Audio use- The increased efficiency also leaves the T1 with greater power reserves- The extremely lightweight 600 Ohm voice coil provides transparency and perfect impulse fidelityCheck out the rest of the Top 5: http: boldlist."
_
"The 600 sounded its best with Schiit Audio Valhalla but was still not in the same league."
_
"That is why I was happy when I switched directly to my smartphone as an audio source where I got back a little more sub-bass but at the expense of loosing some upper frequency details."
_
"I'm using what everyone else seems to be recommending the Woo Audio WA2 (although I think for less money the WA3 would also work - as would a number of other OTL tube headphone amps."
_
"My T1s are well matched with the Burson Audio HA-160 headphone amplifier, which pushes the T1s through its paces with relative ease."

Cable

Cable:
"-Very lightweight for this kind of headphone-Very high quality (better be for the price)-5 year warrantyCons:-3.5mm plug built into the headphones may not fit some cases (mainly battery cases, in my experiences)Specs:-Impedance: 32 ohms-Frequency response: 5Hz-50,000Hz-Nominal sound pressure level: 102dBMy wishes:-Make the cable removable so if broken it ca be replaced easily by a simple aux cable-Add controls that are built into the wire like play pause, mic, change the song and adjust volumeOverall, in my opinion, these are the perfect headphones."
_
"My only problem is that the cable feels flimsy and I have some concern about eventually damaging the connector."
_
"the cable broke before id even finished my amazon refund date."
_
"It's true that the cord is thin and, unfortunately, non-detachable."
_
"The other issue is the dual entry cable: I find it rather annoying as it's always in the way."
_
"It would be nice to have an in-line remote on the cable."

"Each earcup has a nice strain relief for a non-removable cable which is thin enough for a portable mobile use, but still strong enough to take some abuse."
_
"Invest in a good headphone amp and a decent CD player and do spend the money on good cables."
_
"While the sound was amazing(if lacking in sub-bass), the fact that its 1300$, and a cable stretched out in under a month to where the left can didnt work, with minimal use...well....not exactly something im happy about."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"The real problem is the comfort."
_
"Excellent comfort, great sound, need an exceptional source and amp"
_
"They are extremely comfortable and very well made, the padding on the ear cups is really nice, and they are very light on the head."
_
"They are the most comfortable of the 3, and have a nice balance of the warmth & smoothness of the LCD2's and the air & punch of the Grados."
_
"Best I have experienced, remarkably comfortable and clearly superior sound (I love clarity more than range) than many phones costing more."
_
"The clamping force of the headband, which is a solid steel band inside of that leather luxury, was very comfortable and contributed to a great passive noise isolation."

Headphone

Headphone:
"You here of all these jokers on here saying negative things about these headphones but they didn't match them with the right equipment their bad... My amp cost about $1200.00 bucks and the Dac I bought used on Ebay for like $2500.00 bucks."
_
"Great headphone, not the best nor best bang for your buck."
_
"With the Schiit Lyr the T1s shined the most through them but it was really just a compromise compared to the other flagship headphones I have heard."
_
"In the service of the good people out there...and at beyerdynamic, I just want to say that this the absolute WORST headphone I have ever purchased in my whole entire life...so far."
_
"I had to return these after only a few days of listening, the sibilance on these headphones is just down right painful."
_
"Of course, I wouldn't expect very many things to be wrong with a pair of headphones at such a price."
_
"I've owned AKG-K701 headphones for about 5 years and have always liked them for their overall flat response and good detail."
_
"Great Headphones the sound comes out very clear!"
_
"I cannot emphasize enough that you need the equipment to backup these excellent headphones."
_
"Very nice headphone."
_
"The Good: These headphones sound spectacular!"

Music

Music:
"It excels with contemporary music or rock, however classical music was a big disappointment, it does not have the smoothness and soundstage or layering of the HD800."
_
"For what these cost, I just couldn't stomach feeling as if I was missing an important part of the music."
_
"But you really worth having it if you want to enjoy high quality music."
_
"Whether you're watching movies, playing games, or listening to music, what you hear will be clean, crisp, and clear."
_
"Best with most music genre especially Classical music and Jazz."
_
"Though for my personal taste I would prefer a little more bass, overall I think a lot of people will find these to be satisfying and adequate for a wide range of music genres."

Price

Price:
"I'm sending mine back mostly because for the amount of money i paid for them they are too uncomfortable... guess i'll have to get the HD800s when i can afford em."
_
"Not as great as I anticipated given the price and the fact that they're open headphones (which means everyone can hear your music)."
_
"Of course, I wouldn't expect very many things to be wrong with a pair of headphones at such a price."
_
"its hard to justify the price (although I did) and I love them, so frigging comfortable!"
_
"Granted, they're not anywhere close to the same price point, but it serves to illustrate my point: Buy the best headphones you can and you won't waste money buying mediocre headphones before you eventually give up and spend the cash on the really good headphones."
_
"Plus, I didn't realize so many 'phones are quite loud externally, and I didn't want to spend all that money and not be able to use them at work."
_
"Good product with good price."
_
"I happened to throw a good bit of money on my current rig but the saying the chain is as strong as the weakest link plays true here."
_
"Please use your hard earned money to buy some other products way out there, even if you're stuck on a paradise island all by good self."
_
"However, if you have the money, the Beyerdynamic T5p is a great pair of headphones for anyone and everyone."
_
"But since these are such a good price I got 'em, & have to say they are my favorite ones today!"

Quality

Quality:
"However, if you like the T1 sound signature, the sound quality will surely outweigh this downside."
_
"And While the Beyerdynamic T1's have disappointed Me in Their Build Quality, in the light of My extensive knowledge of how well Beyerdynamic typically builds tough and rough headphones; One has to remember that the Beyerdynamic T1's are over a Grand in cost, so being very delicate in handling of the T1's, is considerably most prudent."
_
"But you really worth having it if you want to enjoy high quality music."
_
"The sound quality on these are definitely amazing I can't fault them on that."
_
"With this efficiency has come absolutely no degradation in sound quality or volume."
_
"If your considering purchasing these headphones I would say it's worth a try, everyones ears are different and the build quality on these makes them a great value."
_
"The sound quality is amazing, the build quality is top of the line, and you can wear them hours on end without fatigue."

Sound

Sound:
"They block outside noise and don't leak sound, at least as well as could be expected from headphones this comfortable-- if they were tighter or heavier they might block sound better, but they wouldn't be as comfortable."
_
"When these headphones first arrived, the base was a bit weak and it seemed they would need an amplifier, but after a short burn-in time they have an excellent, balanced sound, perhaps a little weak on the base."
_
"So, to the disappointment of audiophiles, the DT48 had the audacity to sound like a headphone."
_
"However, if you like the T1 sound signature, the sound quality will surely outweigh this downside."
_
"But not all is as good as it sounds, as the width of the soundstage seemingly pulls out vocals away from My ears, or rather, away from the focused middle of the song, where things like Vocals should naturally occur."
_
"But, if you have a good amp and source (please.....no MP3s) the T1 Tesla will produce sound quality that rivals multi-thousand dollar loudspeaker systems."
_
"Well recorded saxophones sound awesome as well."
_
"The sound quality on these are definitely amazing I can't fault them on that."
_
"Great Headphones the sound comes out very clear!"
_
"I put on the HD800 with them and I had much more enjoyment with the sound stage and aural dynamic sound as opposed to the old fashioned angled stereo of the T1."
