Beyerdynamic’s new T5p headphones teeter on the precipice of greatness


Like people, headphones are complex, multifaceted, and idiosyncratic. Each has its own particular version of reality, and the ones you ultimately like best are those you believe you can trust....

Exemplary tonal balance ; Precise, articulate sound ; Removable cable with standard 3.5mm connectors ; Built to last

Round ear cups won't fit everyone ; High price to pay for a moderate step up from $400 cans ; Lack the sound isolation for unintrusive portable use

Review: Beyerdynamic T5p


The Beyerdynamic T5p is a luxurious full-size, high-quality headphone that can handle portable music devices such as iPods and iPhones, but also performs great as...

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

Errrrm, uh, the carrying case isn’t gold-plated

Beyerdynamic T5p


The T5ps deliver great sound while also being suitably portable ? we?re impressed

Dynamic and good timing; a decently open, lively sound: good build; portable

The closed-back design takes away some edge and transparency

Consumer review by: Army-Firedawg (

A hand made gem that's strong in detail and gaming potential, but needs some structural work.


Beyerdynamic has been a tried and true brand for me over the years. In fact, their T70p was my first ever headphone I purchased over $200 (how the times have changed). Their quality and craftsmanship has always impressed me and this continues to the...

Incredibly clinical sound, very strong detail retrieval, hand made, out of this world gaming headphones

Sound may be too clinical for some, construction isn't what's expected of a product of this price, very bass light.

Best closed headphones I have owned


I bought these used along with a Schiit Lyr & Bifrost. Going from my Audio-Technica M50's, they were amazing. Excitedly I went to my home music set up (Paradigm Studio 20s, HSU Research VTF-3, Pioneer Elite VSX-84TXSi) Of course the headphones were no...

Natural, Clear details, better sound stage than any closed headphone I have heard

Bulky and a bit heavy, Non-detachable cord

Great compromise for excellent sound (yes, including bass!) without bugging your coworkers


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...

Sound quality, bass level, isolation

Cost, perhaps..? Well worth the price, however.

Perfect office headphones


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...

Supremely comfortable, good isolation, exceptional bass

Expensive, too bulky/fragile to use on-the-go

T5p - for audiophiles on the go!


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! I had a very...

great sound (details!!!), luxurious design (real leather earpads and headband), driven straight from your smartphone

non-detachable cables, lack of bass quantity

Amazing Closed Headphones


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. My Grado SR325 sounds...

Beyerdynamic T5p Impressions


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...

Clarity; comfort; detailed sound; build quality; looks; versatility; fun factor of sound; etc.

Less-than-ample bass; price; non-detachable cable; isolation could be better.
