Audiophile hi-fi headphones, closed, optimized for portable players (2. Generation)

Portable high-end sound “Made in Germany”

The second generation T 5 p unites mobility and audiophile sound quality on a whole new level. Like its predecessor, the T 5 p combines the latest Tesla technology with the advantages of a closed design. The electrical resistance of 32 ohms makes the T 5 p the ideal partner for portable audio devices. Thanks to the Tesla technology, the low-impedance sound transducers unleash the full audio potential of even inefficient smartphones, tablets and high-resolution players. The short, textile-covered cable is dual-sided and is also designed for use on mobile devices.
Like the previous model, the 2nd generation of the T 5 p was handmade with meticulous workmanship in Germany. Top-quality materials and sophisticated technology were brought together in a series of practised movements with a love of detail. That’s why we continue to offer a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty for our closed high-end Tesla-series model.

New sound tuning

At the heart of the T 5 p is its ground-breaking Tesla technology, which delivers maximum efficiency and crystal-clear sound. The optimised systems feature a warm sound quality and precise bass reproduction.  The result is an even more solid sound and a balanced, first-class listening experience.
We have optimised the geometry of the baffle design from the foundations up. A stable high-tech compound material reduces unwanted vibrations and provides exceptional harmonic sound reproduction with silky treble frequencies. The tilted systems deliver an extremely spacious sound with a wide soundstage and a transparency usually reserved only for open systems.

Closed but still spacious

Thanks to its closed design, the T 5 p reliably prevents unwanted noise from penetrating inwards or escaping outwards. That is a real benefit to the wearer if he or she is listening to music on the sofa while some else is watching television. Likewise, listening to loud music won't disrupt people around you who might want to read a book in peace.
Usually, closed headphone designs restrict the spaciousness of the audio reproduction. That's not the case with the T 5 p: Tilted sound transducers positioned on the casing shell on the wearer's ear deliver an extremely spacious sound with a wide soundstage – and a transparency usually associated with open systems.

Detachable cable

The dual-sided connection cable (1.4 m) on the new T 5 p has a pleasant textile coating, and audiophile music fans will love its conductors made of OCC (Ohno continuous casting) 7N copper. This conductor material is known for its outstanding transmission quality and is considered the gold standard in the high-end sector. The cable’s additional electrical shielding reliably suppresses electromagnetic interference. A longer cable is also available if required.
For balanced use, the supplied connection cable can be replaced with an optional connection cable with a similar design but a greater length and a 4-pin XLR connector on the amplifier side.

High quality materials – elegant design

The high quality material workmanship ensures one-of-a-kind comfort even after hours of wear. The silky-smooth surfaces on the ear cups and the memory foam material used in their interior provide a perfect fit and maximum comfort. The protein-coated surfaces on the ear cups and headband fit like a second skin and keep their comfortable grip and stylish look even after years of wear.
The black, fabric-covered hard-shell carrying case allows secure, compact storage. Compared to the aluminium box for the previous T 5 p, this case offers a light, contemporary design, which makes it ideal for presenting the headphones.

Great performance! With the T 5 p, Beyerdynamic raises the bar in the mobile segment. With forceful bass and sophisticated accuracy, it draws the fine nuances in the music, without getting pushy. For closed headphones, they have an unusually spatial sound.

The fit of the T 5 p is, as is actually the case for all Beyerdynamic models, without doubt superior. For full-format headphones, at 350 g this model is comparatively lightweight. The head and ear cushions are plush and soft and the angled Tesla transducers, which are offset to the front, leave plenty of space within the housing for your ears. The range of adjustment and the swivel range are dimensioned so that the headphones should guarantee a comfortable fit on every head. And the workmanship is top quality too.

[...]

The T 5 p also offers excellent resolution, combined with impressive coarse and fine dynamic qualities. The whole thing is then embedded into a tonally balanced sound image, so that you definitively cannot speak of an ‘analytical’ sound in the negative sense. The T 5 p sounds quick and provides an incredible wealth of information, but also has substance.

The Beyerdynamic T 5 p lays it on thick: From its chunky connector to the giant cushions, its overall appearance is impressive. With its powerful drives, even on mobile devices, it provides a considerable maximum volume and a lively sound with great bass and clean high tones, and reproduces voices clearly.

There is only one sentence needed to summarise the quintessence of this test: beyerdynamic has achieved to build a headphone that combines the smooth wealth of a closed headphone with the free, spacious play of an open headphone so authentic and confident that it can be really referred to as outstanding.

The T 5 p convinces with its high-quality workmanship, selected materials and its finely balanced, dynamic playing style. With the T 5 p beyerdynamic manages to create a closed headphone with the properties of an open headphone, which is quick, agile and defined like a young Olympic athlete.

Its dynamic, cultivated and open style of play can be rather found in more expensive and large-caliber open headphones, which are, however, entirely unsuitable for listening on the go. In contrast to this, the T 5 p applies no pressure to players due to its high efficiency and low impedance. While the open beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO pushed the powerful Astell & Kern AK 380 to its maximum level performance, there were enough reserves left with the T 5 p that could be well used for quieter, classical pieces.

All in all, with the second generation of the T 5 p, beyerdynamic, the headphone specialist from Heilbronn makes it clear that the musical enjoyment on a reference level is also possible when you are on the go. At first it is quite painful that this enjoyment costs 1,190 Euro, but acceptable, because quality has its price and in addition to this the beyerdynamic T 5 p rewards you with an immense harmony, no matter where you are.

Compared to the first generation the manufacturer has added an additional damping to the drivers to minimise disturbing resonances. With the original model they caused a bit of an exhausting sound. In addition to this, a more stable tissue before the sound transducers shall resonate less, thus enabling an even clearer playback. The test confirmed the effectiveness of these efforts. There was nothing heard of discolorations or annoying sounds, the T5p sounded very balanced and round with tight bass and clean highs. Compared with the Sennheiser HD 800 S the sound is warmer and not so finely resolved. Other than this the Beyerdynamic headphone need not fear competition, the rich and always clean sound convinced during the whole test. According to the lab measurements of COMPUTER BILD, the new T5p only needs 98 millivolts at its connector for 90 decibels. This is achieved virtually by any Smartphone. The impedance of 30 ohms is a friendly connection value for smartphones. The connecting cable of the T5p is detachable and can be replaced by a longer one if needed - ideal for use in the living room. With its closed design the T5p prevents unwanted sound to penetrate to the inside or outside. Too bad for mobile use: Unfortunately Beyerdynamic does not offer a headset cable with a built-in microphone for the T5p. With a weight of 386 grams the solid Beyerdynamic headphone is no lightweight, the large and soft cushions, however, still provide very good comfort.

Test result: The new version of the Beyerdynamic T5p convinced in the test with a very balanced and round sound, not only with precious hi-fi systems, but also with smartphones due to its strong magnet drivers, what is quite rare in this top quality class.

The headphone gives you the feeling as if you are standing in the middle of a band, all instruments are clearly separated. Furthermore, they sound incredibly natural and powerful no matter at which volume. I have the feeling to know exactly where each drum is standing in the studio. Instruments like the bass which always get a little bit lost in the sound mix, can be easily followed sound by sound with the T 5 p.

With its big leather ear pads and memory foam the T 5 p does not press on the head and can be worn for hours.  

[...]

You can feel that each premium headphone is handmade at the main factory in Heilbronn, Germany.

[...]

The delivery also includes a high-quality case, which replaces the felt case of the predecessor.

[...]

I find the sound is at least one-third better, spatial and balanced. Whether loud or quiet the T 5 p simply sounds fantastic. It is the right choice for those who are looking for ultimate sound plus freedom of movement.

[...]

Conclusion: Top class reference headphones. No bargain, but for music lovers a dream that has become real (rating 1.1).

As expected, the comfort of wearing of the T 5 p is basically as excellent as with the T 1. The mechanically very solid design is absolutely free from disturbing creaking noise and fits perfectly on the ears without producing a contact pressure that becomes too high after longer listening sessions.

[...]

Which brings us to the subject: With the sonic rework of the new T5p beyerdynamic did the same good job as with the T 1. The optimisation of the resonance behaviour and the slightly warmer tuning have a bigger effect with the T 5 p as with the T 1, because closed headphone housings per se have a higher influence on the sound and therefore, in case of resonances, major negative impacts. The developers in Heilbronn succeeded to eliminate almost any individual sound with the T 5 p. As a result, the T 5 p has made an enormous progress regarding the sound and is now almost equal to the T 1.

[...]

The T 5 p seems to be a bit closer to the action (NB.: in comparison to the T 1), but also lighter in sound. Especially with the latter item the T 5p sets new standards for its class. I have never had a closed headphone before making itself acoustically invisible. It even surpasses the exemplary Sonus faber Pryma model (refer to the test in issue 511), which, however, is half the price. Without any resonances and housing noise you almost forget that you are wearing a closed headphone. Excellent!"

Conclusion

Compared to the T 1 the best thing of the T 5 p is clearly its flexibility for use. For those, who want to listen to music in a practically interference-free surrounding with a very good DAC/headphone amplifier, I would still recommend the T 1. Earlier its sound could clearly distinguish from the T 5 p, but since the introduction of the T 5 p (2G) its advantages are only the semi-open design (less occlusion effect) and a minimal faster and therefore slightly more precise sound. Apart from that, the T 5 p has completely caught up with the T 1. What a brilliant achievement!

When connected to my iPhone and streaming the best quality music using spotify the T5p quickly reveals its magic. I always test such reference headphones with songs I know in every detail. Doing so, often amazing things occur. Suddenly nuances appear, which I could not hear before, a tambourine in the chorus, which I did not yet notice, a cymbal on the drums, a hall which has never been on a synth sound. What the new T5p can do like no other is spatiality, although closed headphones are known for not sounding spatial. Not here: I have the feeling to know exactly where each drum in the studio is standing. Instuments such as the bass, which tend to get a little bit lost in the overall sound, can be clearly heard sound by sound with the T5p.

[...]

The second generation sounds even stronger, more transparent and balanced at the same time. No matter what kind of music I play. Whether electronic, rock, jazz or classic, the T5p makes every genre sound as it should do.

[...]

With its large ear pads made of leather and memory foam it can be hardly felt. Although it closes up, it does press on the head and can be worn for a long period of time. With the predecessor the cable was fixed and not immune to breaks. Now textile coated, detachable cables are enclosed. The quality is alright. You can feel that each of the premium headphones is hand-made in Germany.

[...]

Conclusion: the new mobile reference headphone with a potential for addiction
The predecessor which was highly acclaimed in many tests has been fine-tuned once again and my impression is that at least one-third better, spatial and balanced sound. Whether loud or quiet, the T5p simply sounds bombastic. It is fun to rediscover one’s music selection. My problem is that after a few days with the beyerdynamic Tesla mobile flagship I never want to use another headphone for listening music on a smartphone.

The product quality of the noble T 5 p 2nd Generation is from the finest and beyerdynamic once again proves that they can claim the title of world champion in this range. The material as well as the look and feel are simply perfect: Beginning with a very soft headband pad to reliable and solid 3.5 mm jack connectors on the left and right ear cup Ð the T 5 p embodies German craftsmanship at its best: handmade in Heilbronn, Germany.

Due to an excellent fine dynamic and agile, very transparent tuning, the new headphone from beyerdynamic proves to be an absolute joy when listening: sparkling detailed and dynamic vivid tracks like ÒLa CalacaÓ by the Californian producer David Block alias The Human Experience was a pure enjoyment with the new T 5 p.

The comfort of wearing is also high: It is a pleasure to wear the new T 5 p and despite its weight of 350 gram it is still comfortable. Headphones with closed transducer systems like the T 5 p should fit as tight as possible for a good bass response. This headphone featured a defined, but never uncomfortable contact pressure so that it is also suitable for longer listening sessions.

[...]

In this way the new T 5 p spontaneously convinced in the listening test with a full-body and very luminous sound. With an enormously detailed and very transparent nature, the headphone built up its performance on a compact, but powerful bass foundation: It definitely did not lack the required volume.

Conclusion: beyerdynamic T 5 p 2nd Generation Ð great sound far away from the power outlet

No doubt about it, with the new, exclusive T 5 p beyerdynamic has enhanced the sound potential of their Tesla transducer. Regarding the sound it is less designed for absolute linearity, but rather for musicality, atmosphere and fun: The T 5 p impresses by its brilliant and extraordinary transparent tuning making it ideal for any kind of music. Nearly 1,000 Euro for a mobile headphone is quite ambitious, but its sonic capabilities and the fantastic workmanship make the beyerdynamic T 5 p 2nd Generation definitely a luxury liner of its class.
