      Beyerdynamic DT-1350 Headphone Review

      Comparing the DT-1350 to the Sennheiser HD-800 and Beyer DT-48E (2011 version), the DT-1350 has a very pronounced emphasis in the "AWWWWWW" region of the midrange, while the HD-800 has a mild emphasis in the "EHHHHHH" to "EEEEEEE" region, and the DT-48E a mild emphasis about halfway between those two. The headphone I have on hand that most closely matches the midrange sound of the DT-1350 is the Sennheiser PX-100-II (modified to remove the center of the foam cushions), and while the PX-100-II has less of the midrange emphasis than the DT-1350, the DT-1350 has greater clarity and high-end extension which is to be expected given its price range.

      Bass with the DT-1350 is similar to the HD-800, but somewhat stronger in the 40 to 60 hz region. People who like "full strength" bass should like the DT-1350, since the bass is strong without being excessive or boomy. Bass detail is very good with the DT-1350, and is strong and clear down to 32 hz or lower.

      The DT-1350's highs are smooth and comparable to the HD-800. One of the things I compared was part of Beethoven's 9th symphony, 4th movement (Solti/Chicago/1972) following the first vocal break where there are some triangle sounds that resolve very well on both headphones.

      My overall conclusion is that the DT-1350 sounds more forward in the midrange around 400 hz or so compared to the HD-800 and DT-48E, yet has smooth and detailed bass and highs, and so will likely appeal to people who find headphones like the HD-800 too laid back and polite, or too bright in the upper midrange. One thing I especially like with the DT-1350 is how the bass has some of that "reach out and grab you" visceral impact, which few headphones can duplicate and still be fairly tight and detailed.

      I can't comment on the design of the DT-1350 for studio or professional use, but the thin cord doesn't seem strong enough to withstand the kind of yanking and tugging that occur in those arenas. Comfort is good from the first moments, since the headband has a wide range of adjustment, the right amount of pressure to keep the headphone secure when moving around, and soft earpads that don't pinch the outer ear parts.

      The 80-ohm impedance of the DT-1350 didn't seem to be a factor in my tests, since I got good volume and essentially the same frequency response whether playing from iPod, iPad, or headphone amp from the iPod "line out" dock connector.

      In addition to the pop music tracks listed below, which I used mainly for detecting weaknesses or other problems with the sound, I played a wide variety of genres (Jazz, Diana Krall, Bill Evans Trio; Bach organ, Biggs; Beethoven 9th, Solti CSO; Chopin, Moravec; Reggae, Marley, Tosh; Country, Haggard, Yoakam; Verdi, Domingo; Sinatra and Bennett; Punk, Germs, Fear, Sid Vicious, Social Distortion; Medieval, Madrigali, Medieval Babes; Trance, Mylene Farmer, etc.)

      The following are some of the music tracks I tested with, and the main features I listened for with those tracks:

      Blues Project - Caress Me Baby (piercing guitar sound, handled well).
      Cocteau Twins - Carolyn's Fingers (guitar string detail and quality, very good).
      Commodores - Night Shift (bass detail, very good).
      Germs - Forming (raw garage sound, excellent).
      Lick The Tins - Can't Help Falling In Love (tin whistle, very clear and clean).
      Lou Reed - Walk On The Wild Side (bass impact and detail, excellent).
      REM - Radio Free Europe (drum impact, very good).
      Rolling Stones - She's So Cold (bass impact and guitar sound, very good).
      U2 - With Or Without You (bass slightly boomy; high-pitched instruments/sibilants handled well).
      Van Morrison - Into The Mystic (bass, moderate).
      Who - Bargain (voice trailing off: "best I ever had", good vocal harmonics).

      I bought these for professional, portable use. Their initial appeal to purchase them was:
      • The ear cups fold flat - very compactly into their own provided carry case. Nice touch.
      • The dual headband folds for storage, and then expands for a secure fit on your head. This almost eliminates the chance they will fall off.
      • Made mostly of metal parts, so they should handle the rigors of road-life.
      • I had read many positive reviews on these phones.
      I ultimately returned them because:
      • Even after about 50 hours of break-in, they just did not get the vocal range right to my ears... and I own all sorts of high-quality headphones like Denon 7000 - Audeze - Sennheiser - AKG - Etymotic - etc.
      • Although the deep bass was incredible - especially for this size of driver - the midrange was very compressed and lifeless. Listening to music on these is just not fun or engaging. They don't bring you closer to the performance like a good headphone should...
      • For me, if a headphone can't get the vocal range correct, then none of the rest of aspects matter. It really starts with getting the midrange correct.
      While these weren't right for me, if you just need a headphone that blocks out some background noise, can play extremely loud without distortion, provide really solid bass, and are lightweight & portable, then they might be right for you.

          A comfort to wear even on a 7 hour flight. They effectively cut down external sounds making it more enjoyable to listen to music at a quieter level. The molded carrying case is great protection for the headphones. Sounds quite flat, no extra high end or low end boost.

            I use these headphones with my keyboard when I don't want to disturb my neighbors or guests. The sound is fantastic. These fit on the ear, not over, which I find more comfortable. Gets hot after playing for a couple of hours but that's not surprising. Plus, they look great!

            Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 1350 On-Ear Closed-Back Studio Headphones:

            I didn't realize that these were an on-ear design until after I ordered them. I was kicking myself as I knew they wouldn't be to my liking with the whole isolation thing'. Heck, I almost requested an RMA before they even arrived. However, when they did arrive I just had to open the box and again, I looked into the pouch and saw those diminutive cups while I gently shook my head from side-to-side. Even so, I decided to try them.

            At first I was forcing myself to like them as I hate paying return shipping. But then when I started to listen to them and also to feel how they molded to my years, I noticed that they were quite comfortable. Also, the isolation seemed considerably better than I thought. So I decided to keep using them and sheepishly, I realized that I had profiled these cups in a negative light.

            Overall, I think these are keepers' as the sound is great; the fit is comfortable, as they don't sweat your ears, and they're easy to dismount onto your head above your ears or rest on your neck, as the cups turn flat. Another perk is that they don't over-power my baldhead and that's important when I may use these during a video webcast. Also, they have an 80-ohm resistance that tilts them away from strictly portable use. I could easily connect these to my powered channel strip once it arrives. This is not to say they can't be used on my iPhone because they can.

            Ok, I do wish it had a longer reach than the non-detachable 5-ft cord provides. Also, I would prefer the ear pads to be user replaceable. Otherwise, I'm more satisfied than not.

                Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 1350 On-Ear Closed-Back Studio Headphones:

                Planned usage was during my ~25 minute strolls to work each morning, I commute beside a busy road, these did not provide nearly adequate noise isolation or comfort.

                The pros:
                - Very good audio quality overall, albeit somewhat flat, the clarity is maintained even at high volumes.
                - Solid construction, tangible weight and metal parts.
                - Lightweight, while the weight is noticeable, it's quite tolerable.

                The cons:
                - Poor noise isolation, passing cars distort and drown out my sound in comparison to ear-buds which make automobile cacophony barely audible.
                - Do not conform or angle to the shape of the ear, despite the swiveling ear-cups, sound easily leaks in and the pressure of the ear-pad is unevenly dispersed causing discomfort.
                - Flat sound causes a loss of emotion and connection the music, although purely user preference, I found it vexing and shallow.

                Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 1350 On-Ear Closed-Back Studio Headphones:

                I have auditioned a number of headphones in search of the perfect, portable, and great sounding headphone, including B&W P5, ATH-50, V-moda M80, and various in ear models. I found this model to be the best of all worlds. Clean, clear sound without distortion or over-emphasized bass, excellent portability and usable, protective case, comfortable and stylish. The P5 was very colored and flat IMO, the V-moda was great but has a semi open back/vent that does not isolate as well, and the ATH-50 is a great bargain and good sounding phone but is not very portable. I prefer on ear to in-ear cans, so these really are fantastic, German made, precision headphones. If you are looking for the combination of great sound, comfort, and portability you must try these before spending your $ on more expensive options.

                  I needed high quality closed headphones for using at work. My reference headphones are Grado RS1 that I use at home. Grado RS1, while excellent in sound, are open back headphones and are not suitable for using in an office.I first bought AKG K550 from a local @. While very resolving and open sounding, they sounded too shrill to me. I listened to them for 3 days and decided that I could not live with their sound.I then bought Byerdynamics DT1350 and immediately came to the conclusion that I will be quite happy with them. They have resolving sound but, unlike AKG K550, have a much better bass. The low notes are very well defined in both headphones, but with Beyerdynamics DT1350, the bass is actually impactful, as it should be.Constructions is very solid. Comfort is also excellent, especially for headphones that sit over one's ears. I would have liked a longer cord though.

They are surprisingly efficient for being 80ohms and have a very well balanced tone that does have one drawback--a slightly 'cupped' sounding lower midrange. That said, I think that is just part of a sealed headphone sound in most cases. It's not major by any stretch. It also has this incredible bass! That does seem to reveal mic stand handling and plosives more that perhaps any transducer I've heard. Wether or not that's to your liking or needs, it's there. As far as isolation is concerned, I have never heard headphones of this size have anywhere near this much isolation(barring IEMs)! Crazy awesome engineering in general. Placement is a bit finicky D/T their small size, but in 10 second at first, and less in a few weeks, these things will become very natural to apply. All in all, if small size, incredible sound, great isolation, are what you want but you don't like IEMs, these are what you are looking for.

                      sound is very good. build quality is also good. But it is a little difficult to adjust the headband. Overall, I think this is one of the best portable headphones.

                        I have been in HiFi audio since 1948, starting with WII split headband aircraft headphones. These Beyerdynamic DT 1350 headphones are
                        the best of all the headphones I have ever used. They are well made, fit my size 8 head comfortably, are very sensitive, and reproduce vocals superbly. The highest recommendation.

                        As a studio musician that records his own music I am constantly looking for the perfect headphons. I haven't found them yet but these are useable for what I do. There was no "wow" these are just ok -- good headphones. For the size they do great. I'm not in love with them and from the reviews I read I was a bit dissapointed when I first heard them. It's a close call if their worth the money. I will say to the average listener these will probably create a " wow" when you hear them.

                        These sound really great with my AudioQuest DragonFly! I was looking for a relatively portable headphone I could use both at home and on the road (I travel a lot for my day job). I wouldn't necessarily get these out on the plane (unless it was a really long flight), but they are perfect for listening in my motel room at the end of a long day.

                        Sound is clear and powerful, balanced from top to bottom. I don't hear any deficiencies in the sound - should be happy with these for many years :)

                              These headphones have received excellent reviews which is what prompted me to order them sight unseen. My major disappointment with them is they did not isolate noise as well as the reviews lead me to believe. The sound was very even and balanced. Unfortunately I think I was looking for wider staging and a bit more presence. These phones were comfortable enough but I think on longer listening might become less comfortable. I realize my criticism of this headphone is not so much of the headphone itself, but of my listening desires. Many of you may find these headphones very suitable to your needs. YThey just weren't to mine. I ended up returning them and purchasing a psir of Fostex's that I plan on having modified. By the wau B&H was excellent with the return. No qustions asked and made the process quite easy. B&H is the best. Believe their commercials.

                                  I tried quite a few small on-ear headphones looking for something more discreet than the Sennheiser HD600 and AKG701's I normally listen to at the office. It was beyond difficult trying to find a pair that has accurate, audiophile grade sound. I tried the AKG K450 (bass heavy), Pioneer MJ591 (distorted vocals), B&W P5 (too laid back, lacking upper frequencies), Grado 325 (uncomfortable), etc. After reading and watching countless reviews and threads I figured I have nothing to lose by trying the DT1350.

                                  Finally, a pair of headphones that lives up to the positive reviews. Sounded very good out of the box, even sweeter after breaking in a couple of weeks. It's been a long time since I've owned a pair of closed cans but I really enjoy these. I can still hear my phone @ work with the ringer up but it cuts out the other office noise letting me listen without turning up the volume to a level that's unsafe for long sessions.

                                  I hate regretting an audio or video purchase every time I use the item. I spent months researching and listening and finally found the DT1350s. These are worth every penny of their retail price. Build quality, sound, and comfort are all excellent.

                                  Only issue encountered: My only minor complaint is that the hinged ear cups do not swivel a little more. Once the headphones ear cups are spread wide enough to fit over your head they are positioned vertically, only swiveling further into a trapezoid shape (the top of the ear cups swivels in but not out into a V shape). This places most of the pressure on the top of your ear instead of distributing the contact pressure over your entire ear. I'm sure they can be bent to resolve the issue but I don't really want to bend my new cans.

                                  Highly recommended.

                                    These are my new choice for Portable Headphones. These are very durable, great bass non-accentuated bass, very detailed sound. The DT1350 do not work well when amped with my ASUS DG Xonar sound card, but work well with other audio sources. The cord is stronger than you think, it was put to the test and boroke and MP3 player, but the cord stayed intact. It took me about 20 hours to burn in. BEST HEADPHONES EVER.

                                    Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 1350 On-Ear Closed-Back Studio Headphones:

                                    I was searching for portable headphones that obviously sound great, but also provide as much passive noise isolation as possible. In my search for noise isolation, I was not even considering active noise cancellation or foamy insertable ear buds. Neither of those are a desirable option. The Beyer 1350s do sound wonderful to my ears. Their ability to isolate external noise, however, is not as great as I would have desired, despite all manner of adjustment of the bands and ear pads. The ear pads are soft, and while they do provide some seal, I may need to try something more like in ear monitors? Some of the pros and cons of the 1350s:

                                    PROS:
                                    -Sound quality. Based on sound quality alone, I would buy these again.
                                    -Accessories. Nice travel case and adapter for commercial aircraft.
                                    -They are very comfortable.
                                    -They work well with portable devices, completely happy without an amplifier.

                                    CONS:
                                    -Wish they provided better isolation from background noise.
                                    -They contain a lot of plastic parts, which seems just a bit cheap.
                                    -No detachable cord, so when/if the plug breaks (usually the death of all headphones), will have to send in to be repaired or buy new ones.

                                    Despite some negative observations, I am overall happy with these, especially based on how they actually sound.
                                    Prior to buying these, the headphones that I was comparing them with the most were the AKG K550s. Check out Tyll Hertsens helpful review for both of these on the innerfidelity website

                                    Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 1350 On-Ear Closed-Back Studio Headphones:

                                    I've been in the market for a good portable headphone for quite a while now. With every portable I've tried I've felt that I was making some sort of compromise in regards to sound for the convenience of a small and compact headphone. While the 1350s can't compete with the higher end full-sized headphones out there, they come closer than anything I've tried. And the fact that they manage to do so in a such a compact and elegant way makes them all the more impressive to me.PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES:First and foremost, these feel look and feel like high quality headphones. The metal constructions gives them a nice weight (while not being overly heavy) in the hand and the feel of something that's going to last a lifetime. They come with a two-year warranty and I've heard good things thus far about their customer service should you need it. The small earcups are one of the very few things not made of metal, but they don't feel cheap in any way. It's a nice hard and durable plastic with what feels like brushed metal endcaps on the sides. The height adjustments for the earcups work well and have a nice solid click with each level of adjustment.The split headband is one of my favorite features as it allows you to adjust the pressure of the clamping force. I open mine about 30 degrees and find that it's the perfect balance between keeping the headphones solidly on my head and not killing my ears with excessive clamping force. Other notable features in terms of usability are the flat-folding AND rotating earcups. They fold flat which makes them easy to wear around the neck and also allows them to become more compact for travel. Both earcups also swivel in both directions (forward and backward), which is nice if you're listening to music but need to hear something that someone is saying. You simply rotate the earcup off one of your ears (up to 90 degrees)and can hear whatever is going on around you. If these features aren't clear, then you can easily find a video review by Jude at head-fi.org that demonstrates both of these features very clearly.The only issue I have had so far is that I find the exposed cables connecting the earcups to the headband to be a tad too long. When I put the headphones on my head I often have to kind of push the cables out of the way. It's a small issue, but worth mentioning, I think. The cable itself is rather thin, but I don't think durability will be an issue with normal use. Unfortunately, you can hear some noise on occasion when the cord rubs against clothing or bumps into something, but it's minimal and hasn't been annoying enough to cause any real issues during normal use.COMFORT:I've never tried an on-ear headphone that didn't hurt my ears. The 1350s are no exception. That said, they seem to be getting more comfortable each time I wear them as the pads soften up a little and conform to the shape of my ears. I can easily wear them for an hour or longer with no major discomfort, and I'm optimistic that they will continue to improve with time. To compare them to two other major players in the portable market, I'd say they are slightly more comfortable than the Vmoda M80s and slightly less comfortable than the Sennheiser HD25s. There has been a lot of talk about the 1350s from people saying these are finicky in terms of getting a good seal on your ears, but I haven't had that problem. One bit of advice is to wear them slightly further back on your ears than you would normally think is correct. Once you get that seal, these become like little suction cups on your ears. Which leads me to my next point...ISOLATION:Simply the best noise isolation I've ever heard from an on-ear headphone. Keep in mind that these are not noise-cancelling headphones. They block out sound passively by forming a good seal between the earpads and your ears. I'm listening to them as I write this review, and I can't hear any keyboard clicks at all, which is saying something since I use one of those super-noisy mechanical (clicky) keyboards that you can hear from across the house. My wife is watching TV in the room, and I don't have the slightest idea what is on without looking at it. I can't wait to get these on an airplane or train to see how they perform in those environments.SOUND:I don't claim to be an expert on describing sound, so please keep that in mind. I can offer some general observations, though, based on my experience with other portables (M80 and HD25) and full-sized headphones (DT880, SRH940, and many others).Overall, I'd classify these as mostly neutral sounding. The sound is very clean and distortion-free...refined, I'd say. They aren't as dark as the M80s and not as bright as the HD25s. They're somewhere in between, which is exactly what I was looking for. On the M80s, I felt that the overall sound was good, but that the treble was just a tad too soft. On the HD25s, I thought the treble was just a touch too bright and the bass was just a tad too loose. The 1350s don't have any of these issues to my ears.Bass - Surprisingly good from such a small headphone. The bass isn't going to kick like it does on bass-heavy headphones or even the M80 for that matter. That said, it's obviously present and never lost in the overall sound. What I notice the most is how low the bass seems to extend. Bottomless would be a good word to use. It has a decent punch when the song demands it and is well behaved when it needs to be. I wouldn't recommend these headphones for people who listen mostly to house music or hip-hop, but otherwise I think the bass will please most people out there.Mids - Very present. Perhaps slightly forward, but not enough to be overwhelming. Vocals sound close and engaging. These headphones grabbed me immediately when a Norah Jones track popped up for the first time. Some people have called the mids on these a little dry, but I haven't had an issue in that regard.Treble - Present enough to be engaging, but never sibilant or fatiguing. Guitars sound good. If you listen to jazz, then I think you'll love the sound of trumpets on these headphones. It has the right amount of brightness and bite to it without making your ears bleed.I find these headphones to be solid with most genres. Jazz especially shines and may be their biggest strength, but I find them acceptable for pretty much anything that I've thrown at it.Soundstage is obviously not a strength of these headphones due to their closed nature and small size. That said, I don't find it lacking at all compared to other headphones in the same class. I've used them for a couple of movies and an episode of The Walking Dead so far and have been perfectly satisfied with their performance. Their clarity and low-distortion makes them great for dialogue and helps them to excel with movies and podcasts. I still prefer a nice open-back full-sized headphone for what they add in soundstage, but I can use these guys without feeling like I'm missing out on anything substantial.AMPING: These are easily driven and work great out of a portable device. You can get plenty of volume and most of what I like about the sound remains intact. That said, they also scale up quite nicely. When amped, the bass gains a little extra punch and the sound becomes more engaging. Also note that these headphones require good source material to sound good. You wouldn't want to use these to listen to low-level mp3s that you've downloaded or to listen to low-quality streaming music. Their ability to portray detail means that you will hear everything in the recording that may happen to be present. If you listen to a poorly recorded (or compressed) song, then that's exactly what you're going to hear out of the 1350s. Feed them high-quality music, however, and the sound will be divine. I use high-quality mp3s on the road and nothing but flac when I'm at home and have been very pleased thus far.EXTRAS:The DT1350s come with a very nice and compact traveling case that makes them ideal for going back and forth to work with me every day. They come with a 1/4" adapter which I use when listening via my Audinst HUD-mx1 dac/amp. They also come with an airline adapter which I haven't had a chance to test out yet.CONCLUSION:Overall, I highly recommend you give these a shot. Other than a few very small quibbles with the cable, I can't imagine a portable headphone doing as much as right as the 1350s manage to do. I finally have a small and portable headphone that travels well without making any major compromises in terms of sound. Worth every penny and maybe even a little more.

                                      Comments about Beyerdynamic DT 1350 On-Ear Closed-Back Studio Headphones:

                                      Excellent sound quality for the size. Feels a little tight because of the all metal construction but not uncomfortably so. The sound takes a little adjusting to but once adjusted it sounds quite good. The looks are very nice but prefer the lightness and comfort of the HD25-1 II instead.
