With Bayer's reputation for professional audio products and after reading so many glowing reports I opted for this pair for use on the go. I'm afraid I was disappointed, I gave them a good go (40hrs) but they sounded, and remained, just a little dull. I took them along to my local Richer Sounds where I chose 3 pairs of other headphones to compare in the hi-fi / AV listening room. The Bayers fared better than some more expensive headphones (in the bass and mids) but couldn't hold a light to the AKG K451's – clearer, bassier, wider separation and just an all-round more enjoyable / interesting / fun listening experience. More comfortable as well. I learnt from this experience that you've just got to try out headphones before you buy to find out what suits you – we-re all different. Otherwise – just as buying shoes without trying them on – it's hit-and-miss.

These headphones strikes the right balance of comfort, portability and sound. The sound quality is excellent with plenty of detail, a balanced presentation that is not too bassy and a wide soundstage. This is achieved without being too clinical in sound. The headphones are light, comfortable to wear and pack away into the firm case provided. Although the AKG450 series has gathered great praise having owned both and many more I recommend these instead. They are more comfortable with the benefit of marvelous sound. They block out about 70-80% of outside noise and once you have had them on for five minutes or so this seems to rise further to about 90% as they warm up. At 70 pounds these compare favourably with the B&W P5 at more than double the price. The only other comparison is the Audio Technica E55 headphones. These get the balance of requirements spot on. If inclined to go even further in headphone quality I recommended the Beyerdynamic 1350s.

Note as with all headphones positioning is important to get the correct ear closure, I find Beyerdynamics sit a little further back on the ear than many brands.

Sources: iPhone5, iPhone5 with PA2V2/FiiO E07k/Decware Zen Head amps using the LOD, various computers using the Microstreamer and Beyerdynamic A200p DAC/amps.

Review notes: My first impressions of the sound of the DTX501p are based on direct comparisons to other headphones - in particular the FAD Pandora VI, v-moda M100, Beyerdynamic DT1350 and T51p, Yamaha MT220, B&O H6, B&W P7, and notes I've accumulated from many prior reviews. I describe how I relate to the DTX501p (i.e. my personal taste and how I use the headphone) only after I've covered all of the objective issues.

I reviewed the DTX501p 18 months ago, and while I don't normally do a second review unless there's an upgraded version and it's personally compelling, I've been using the Audioforge Parametric Equalizer on Apple devices with various headphone amps (and to a lesser extent the Foobar2000 equalizer on computers), so I decided to get another DTX501p and review the sound with and without the equalization. Out of the box the DTX501p has a stronger than neutral bass with great warmth (which I like very much), an average midrange that's neither recessed nor emphasized, and a soft treble. Unfortunately the combination of emphasized bass and soft treble mask much of the harmonic details, requiring some kind of EQ to have a high fidelity sound. Fortunately the design of the Audioforge equalizer suggests just the minimum adjustments necessary to reduce or eliminate colorations in the sound without changing the basic signature of the headphone.

Phew!Tried many different' recommended' headphones (akg 451 eg) and these were the last ones ,put them on instantly liked them,.Totally agree with other users excellent sound and comfort .... keeping them!, worth the extra money 5 stars.
----Update. Unfortunately they are 32ohms which means they are not really suitable for phones etc,because of lack of volume, disappointing.

Preface: Beyerdynamic is an iconic well-established brand that is not only a music industry icon for innovation and design efficiency, but also one that is highly regarded for many for their understanding the users needs and transforming this into a perfectly executed package. It is indeed no personal fact that I have professionally relied upon Beyerdynamic products for the duration of my career where they have never let me down under the premise of compromised build quality function or performance. With this noted Beyerdynamic has already set the bar extremely high for my expectations of the DTX 501p closed-back, portable, light-weight, and small footprint headphones. Basically, if you are looking for a rather unobtrusive product that outperforms those fiddly little earbuds that you cant fit into your ears properly and don't quite have the want the full emersion of a large dynamic headphone, or 'cans', design then these are the perfect compromise. Although I have mentioned the word compromise here, this really should be used loosely as an intermediary design such as this still harbours a hell of a lot of consumer quality and 'bang-for-your-buck'.

​​​Unboxing: Arriving in the Beyerdynamic standard, the box is deceivingly small where inside you will locate a very nice, black zipped, hard-back clamshell case with a cord wristband to stop you loosing or mistreating your investment. Now, it has to be said that for a product in this price-range, the most advanced headpho​ne protection case that I have come across is, if at all, a mere black cloth back pouch so this attention to detail is a truly awesome reward.
