I just bought a pair of used Beyerdynamic T51p from eBay for a relatively low price. I never heard them before, so I was wondering what to expect in terms of sound signature, more specifically how do they compare to non-Beyerdynamic headphones? Which headphones would it stack up to or compete with in terms of performance? Thanks.
Some more context would be beneficial for some of your questions... Non-beyerdynamic headphones? I'm not sure what you're getting at but the T51p sound nothing like the traditional Beyer house sound of their over ears. There is no treble harshness whatsoever, in fact the T51p are very warm and moderately rolled off. Bass is a little loose but tastefully emphasized to my ears. Otherwise, are we comparing it to other sealed, on ear headphones I assume? Some similar type headphones that I'm very fond of is the Sennheiser Momentum on ear 2.0 and the Philips Fidelio M1i, both are warm sounding on ears and both can be found for a cheaper street price than the beyers whereas both also have lots of metal in their construction! Hope this helps,
